RE: Beveridge?


The RELs tie to the outputs of the amp driving the Bev woofers and the RELS have their own internal crossover. It is REL "trademark" of how they hook up and the sub "sees" what the amp sees. This way, I don't have the linesources going through any active crossover. This keeps things clean.

The linesources are passively crossed over with the internal first order Beveridge crossover. I use a 150lb 211 SET amp on the line sources and I use a solid state amp on the Bev internal woofers , again passively crossed over internally. The SET obviously has some limitations but this is no ordinary SET it is a beast.

So, the system is bi-amped with the internal passive crossovers in the Bev.

The internal crossover caps and coils have been ridcuously upgraded at great expense.

It all seems to work and blend exceedingly well after alot of trial and level matching. I think the 2 subs helps even out room modes. Quite a few of my audio group have been suitably impressed on this contraption!

I used to use exclusively rebuilt Quad ESLs with all their limitations they continue to amaze.. the Beveridges sound bigger ( the Quads are small sounding) but the Quads play plenty loud for me and are really amazing if they are rebuilt.

I have the USA monitors as well - as good as they are- they are not ESLs or Beveridge's.

The Quads play really well with the Futterman- amazingly well.
