Powerful sounding yet easy on the eye, the Ruark RS1 delivers a bass boost in style.

The perfect companion for Ruark speakers
The Ruark RS1 isn’t like the average subwoofer; it’s way more stylish than that. Ideally suited to Ruark’s MR1, R3S and R410 models, this subwoofer enhances not just the high level power but also the depth of sound, giving a smoother and richer balance. Using an industry standard RCA input, this Ruark subwoofer is also compatible with most other home cinema and hi-fi speaker systems, too.

Deeper, richer sound
Designed for a richer bass response, rather than outright power, the RS1 uses a 170mm long-throw, powered woofer together with a 170mm passive cone to add weight and body to your music and movies. With less strain on your main speakers, you get a more lifelike and natural sound, whatever the volume level.

Dynamic and controlled
Although the RS1’s focus is very much on quality over quantity, it’s no slouch when it comes to power and control. Featuring a built-in 100 watt, Class-D amplifier, the sub is more than capable of sustaining higher volumes and keeping a tight control on the bass. This means that the bass is dynamic and fast to respond, enhancing the music’s thrilling sensations.

Luxurious finish
Unlike many less than attractive subwoofers, Ruark’s RS1 is just as luxuriously finished as its other speakers are. Walnut caps, top and bottom and a wraparound fabric grille give it an unobtrusive, room-friendly style. This is one subwoofer that doesn’t need to be hidden away. The finish also perfectly matches selected Ruark speakers, giving a harmonious aesthetic style.

Easy set-up
Auto-on/standby means that you don’t have to switch the RS1 on/off each time you want to listen. Connection is via a simple RCA cable, with a 1.5 metre cable supplied (longer subwoofer cables are available in our stores, online or via telesales). The adjustable crossover adapts from the tiniest satellite speakers to large standmounters, and everything in between. Switchable phase control keeps the sound in sync if the subwoofer’s placed behind you.

Hear a new dimension to Ruark sound, with the stylish RS1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RS1 Together with R410 Pure Bliss Had my Subwoofer now a few weeks to give a bit of background I have the Ruark R410 now that system has enough Bass without a sub and I don't mean just Bose like Mid Bass I mean deep bass almost hearing sub-bass levels but equally the system is tonally neutral, so it has a great mid-range and the low frequencies sparkle so I was a little bit dubious if the sub would make much difference, I couldn't of been more wrong! Now I am not one for room-shaking bass and that is all you hear Bass that is lumpy detached muddy the bass provided by the RS1 delivers clean, fast, realistic sub-bass and it looks absolutely stunning. I set the cross-over to 60-80 as the R410 has enough low end oomph and the Phase to 0 and the bass volume 3/4 this is my sweet spot the system now has more atmosphere, its more powerful and the low-end is really sweet and my fears that the open nature and separation would suffer were allayed one minute into my test track Angel by massive attack. Seriously you have a R410 get one MR1s of course, this is one great Sub and Ruark have done it again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but bad colour match to MR1s I bought this speaker to complement my MR1 speakers I bought last year, (and have been delighted with). The set up is easy, and the sound is great as you'd expect from Ruark. However, I was disappointed that the colour of the Walnut timber is much greyer than that of the warmer, honey coloured walnut of my MR1s, (and my older R4). It appears the latest MR1s are also now in this greyer colour but be warned that if you have an older set of MR1s the RS1 will not match if that's an important consideration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little subwoofer I have purchased a refurbished unit and am very happy with the results. It is relatively compact, for a subwoofer, however the bass is very balanced and absolutely sufficient for my needs. I use the combination of speakers + subwoofer in my office and it sounds great. I only had the speakers for several years and the addition of the subwoofer made a great difference to the overall sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition I bought the RS1 to go along with the RS3 music system to give a bit more depth to the already great sound from the RS3. Very pleased with the result, and looks great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely subtle sound I got the RS1 sub to pair with MR1 MK2, it’s a great pairing and whilst I bought a graded item I can’t find a single thing wrong with it! Adds just that little bit extra to what are already amazing speakers, lovely finish and classic looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks, great sound Recently bought the R3s CD player to listen to my Cris Rea collection, especially his later blues music. It sounded great and I wanted to hear it all through the house. Considered extra speakers but was not keen on wires. Read the reviews for RS1 Subwoofer and thought it might do the job. The combination works really well. I put the Subwoofer on some granite placemats as I have a wooden floor which was acting as an extra very large Subwoofer which was not the sound I was looking for at all. Once the granite was underneath it sounded the way I had hoped. It is richer and even though I could hear every instrument clearly before, this made it more so. Easy to set up and use. Very, very pleased with both my purchases .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RS1 Subwoofer I bought this subwoofer to compliment my MR1 speakers while using my PC. I must say I was impressed with the sound quality and harmonious combination between speakers and the subwoofer.
