REL Acoustics, Ltd. of Bridgend, Wales was founded in 1990 by Richard Edmund Lord. Dissatisfied by the commercially available subwoofers of the day, Lord set out to build Himself something better. Almost immediately, word spread of a Welshman who had built this incredible sounding sub bass system and soon enough audiophiles began searching out these legendary subs that were built like no other. They are one of the fastest growing products in the high-end bracket with strong international partnerships all over the world and acclaim from every high-end audio and home theater magazine. At its cornerstone, fundamental reliability remains its core strength, blended with a unique approach to design that results in what many consider the most musical and powerful sounding subwoofers available.
“We still insist on testing each unit at multiple stages along the way, then performing exhaustive tests on finished units. It’s not the cheapest way to build, to be sure, but the only way we know of to ensure consistently high quality.” -John Hunter and Donald Brody
