REL to demo the Predator HT/1508 Sub at the Bristol Hi-Fi Show 22-24th Feb 2019.
Read the news.
850W amp? Possibly a strange choice after stating its design on headroom, fluidity and longevity.
'Rel testing revealed......' yadda yadda. It's been very basic common knowledge for years that 15 inch drivers offer greater ease of output and greater overall output. Rel sure know how to do marketting. That said, looks like they got the pricing nice on this one, should be a pretty sweet HT sub.
You looking to swap your Arendal Sub2?
Always funny to read the marketing claims. But it`s great finally to see larger sub from REL and specifically new HT line, but the competition is tough as example SVS is now available to order from RS too.
From 12" model 699£ to 15" - 1600£. For a comparison PSA S1510 (1249£), Arendal Sub2 (1400£), SVS SB4000 (1800£), SVS SB3000 (1275£).. Not forgetting some Rythmik 15" sealed direct servo subs which weren`t too expensive couple years ago (taxes etc.).
HCC seems to be releasing review of this Predator on 21.2. Time for REL to send one for Audioholics too!
I don't own an Arendal sub 2. I have a couple 15 inch IB drivers in waiting, but for now I only have an X8
Say what you will about REL but they do make good subs. I still love the way my T9 integrated into my system , the extension it adds to my mains is epic.
Really looking forward to the Bristol show and will definitely be stopping by the REL stand .
