RS1 Subwoofer

The Foundation of Music

Bass is the foundation of music. It is the element that makes you feel the rhythm, the groove, and the emotion of a song. Bass can make your heart beat faster, your body move, and your mood change. Whether you listen to rock, pop, hip hop, jazz, or classical music, clean and extended bass adds a new dimension to musical enjoyment and that’s why we’ve developed RS1.

Controlled Delivery

The enjoyment of music is at the core of our designs. RS1 is not about thunderous, overblown bass, but about deep, controlled, and most importantly a musical sound. To achieve this, the enclosure and custom drivers have been optimised and tuned to deliver natural extended bass, that is fast and rhythmic.

Driving the system is a powerful 100-watt Class D amplifier. This new generation amplifier keeps firm control of the bass driver at all volume levels with headroom to spare, although soft clipping is built in should the system ever be overloaded to avoid damage. Setup and adjustment is straightforward and with auto-on/standby, RS1 will automatically turn itself on and off as required.

Developed Through Demand

Our reason for the development of RS1, was due to the demand from customers requesting a companion sub for our award winning MR1 Bluetooth speakers. We also saw that there was a need for a subwoofer with style. Where many subs look unattractive in a domestic environment, the tailored grille and hand-crafted wood panels of RS1 means it fits seamlessly with other furnishings, making it a product that customers will be proud to display in their homes.

RS1 delivers deep bass that smaller speakers are unable to, giving a more satisfying and realistic audio experience. It’s a perfect addition to our MR1 and R3S models or indeed any other system where a subwoofer with style and good sound is required, providing the joy of bass in every note and song.
