REL Stentor internal rewiring

Hi everyone! I own a pair of REL Stentor III. I'm in the process of replacing ALL factory wires inside my Stentors with decent quality copper cables. I'm replacing the crappy factory caps too. Has anyone tried such a thing with your REL subs? If you have, would you share details here, please? Of course I'm interested what the results sounded like. Thanks! Anyone?

Guys I really need help - despite reading various help links at the begining of this thread.
I upgraded from mrx700 to 710 receiver and bought two REL S5 subs that should be radio linked (Longbow).
I understand that both subs will work as dual mono.
How on earth do I start the setup if I really cannot alter the positioning ( both subs pointing forward on the inside of both main front speakers) ?

When I switch the mrx on do I try fiddling with the sound of each sub separately , then run them both to fix phase, and then run arc ?
Any advice on settings?
I have no local dealers for either make and had to buy from abroad so I have nobody to talk to.

Please do let me know any hints, tips or tricks to get this right.

Many thanks

Gentlemen,

am I right in thinking that a REL T-5 or T-7 purchased in the US will be able to be played in the UK without the need for any voltage transformers?

The price out here is very good compared to the UK and I would be interested in taking one home with me when we move.

Thanks.

I see! Didn't notice the little blacked out box adjacent to the specific voltage.

Shame! Thought I might have saved myself a few quid there

Thanks fatbottom, stopped me making an ill advised purchase.

Just to be safe do at least 1000 hours of break in using a semi-quasi-rigid waveform in the range of 20hz-1000khz (just to be sure). This is specific to the 212se owners.

Just play music for a few hours at a safe level. I like to bed in the drive cones for a bit, rather just blast away movies straight away.

Howdy,

Question- I have a REL B1 sub. In the past, I ran my REL spec cable to a multi-channel amp with no issues.

I have recently moved to mono amps. With the spec cable to the monos I am getting a hum when the amps are moved to idle via my trigger cable from pre/pro. When I bring the system up the hum halts.

Any idea what is causing this? Again, hum only occurs when mono amps are moved into standby mode.

Thanks
Rick
