Rega Speakers, what's inside?

    Just out of interest I have been searching far and wide for images of the construction of Rega loudspeakers. So far I have found nothing, any ideas. Thanks

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    That very much depends on the Rega model in question, they’re all well made though. I’m pretty certain the models with a side firing woofer have separate chambers from the difference sections, they’ve made some transmission line designs too.

    It depends on the model as above.

    Some like the Ela and R7/R9 are transmission line designs, some are standard ported such as the Jura or Ara, and others use a distributed port/slot/aperiodic arangement such as the Alya and R3. I'm not familliar with the RS/RX models.

    Example of the R3/R5

    There's an old lady trapped in some of the bigger models...

    Blimey, I think that’s Jean from the cafe, down the road, wondered where she’d gotten to... does a bostin English brekkie and a cup of tea!

    Thanks for answers. I should have said I have got the RS5’s so just interested in their internals, not that I am going to operate.

    I would imagine that the midrange driver/tweeter is in a sealed compartment and the 7" bass driver makes up the most of the cabinet in a ported enclosure. Just a guess.

    Probably what most other say, and as long as Rega don't need/want to publish anything other than write what changes were provided going from RS to RX
