Seeking experience in big rooms with REL subs
I’ve been doing some upgrading and my subwoofer is suddenly the weak link. I have SF Venere S speakers, a Mcintosh C2600 pre-amp, MC302 amp, and a VPI Scout with 2M Black cartridge. Although I use the setup for movies, tv and 2-channel, I’m really only concerned with 2-channel stereo performance (hi-res music and vinyl). I live in a loft with 35 ft ceilings and the room where the equipment is located is fairly large. I currently have a REL T9, which was great in my previous, smaller place, but it isn’t cutting it now. Also, I’d prefer one sub versus multiple, due to the way things are arranged. Bottom line is that I’m looking for a sealed sub that can handle the space.
I’m currently looking at a REL S/5, REL G2, REL 212/SE and Revel B112. I’d love to hear from some folks with large rooms and high ceilings and whether any of the subs I’m considering worked or didn’t work … and any other suggestions for what DID work. I can probably demo one or some of these, which will help, but thought I’d reach out to this forum to get some advanced info.
