This graph shows the quasi-anechoic (employing close-miking of all woofers) frequency response of the Venere 2.5 L/R (purple trace), Venere Center center channel (green trace), Venere 1.5 surround (red trace), and REL T-7 subwoofer (blue trace). All passive loudspeakers were measured with grilles at a distance of 1 meter with a 2.83-volt input and scaled for display purposes.

The Venere 2.5’s listening-window response (a five-point average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal and vertical responses) measures +2.65/–8.17 decibels from 200 hertz to 10 kilohertz. The –3-dB point is at 52 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 39 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 4.49 ohms at 111 Hz and a phase angle of –38.19 degrees at 76 Hz.

The Venere Center’s listening-window response measures +1.73/–6.13 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. An average of axial and +/–15-degree horizontal responses measures +1.31/–6.07 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. The –3-dB point is at 82 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 64 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 3.84 ohms at 8.9 kHz and a phase angle of –33.79 degrees at 2.5 kHz.

The Venere 1.5’s listening-window response measures +2.50/–4.30 dB from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. The –3-dB point is at 61 Hz, and the –6-dB point is at 54 Hz. Impedance reaches a minimum of 6.78 ohms at 162 Hz and a phase angle of –29.17 degrees at 103 Hz.

The REL T-7’s close-miked response, normalized to the level at 80 Hz, indicates that the lower –3-dB point is at 32 Hz and the –6-dB point is at 28 Hz. The upper –3-dB point is at 98 Hz using the LFE input with the Crossover control set to maximum.—MJP
