Magico Mini with REL Stentor Sub can it match?

Can MAGICO MINI 2 Work with good subs such as REL STENTOR 2 or 3.
Sterling Trayle,originally of Sumiko(who was responsibe for the Rel stuff,in the U.S.) was very "against" the use of spikes.He talked me out of using them!

His rational was that since the driver fires downward,the sub requires a "specific" amount of distance from the "bottom" to the floor,for good bass coupling.If you use the spikes,then that geometry is off!...A no,no....Made good sense,the way he described it at the time.

Also,it is rediculous as well,since the sub cannot be moved around much.

You won't have to worry about "that"...since you probably have others lined up to do the work anyway.

You now have all the info you need about the Rel,whether a series II or III.In your room it makes little difference which one is used.
IM sure the wlson is very good maybe better but i am very happy with my stentor.
The "big" advantage of the Wilson Benesch Sub over almost any other is the "Larger" driver surface area(I believe it is 15-18 inches,or there-abouts).But it does not stop also has a very "low driver mass"(far lower than a REL),which would make it a far superior match for a bullet fast speaker, like a MINI!!

The low mass driver,is faster/more sensitive than other sub drivers(including the REL...though they are excellent) and from what I remember JV of TAS stating,was "this" was the BEST sub for a MINI!!Check out the back issues of TAS if you doubt my memory or integrity on the matter.

I doubt there will be much feedback on "anyone" mating a REL with a super fast speaker like the MINI,though anything is possible.

I do remember a few folks who had superb sucess with the Wilson Benesch sub on the MINI though....but...

These folks "only" wanted the finest possible match with a Magico MINI in mind(not getting a low price on a sub alternative).

If I were lucky enough to have a superior design like the MINI "is",I'd be more concerned with the tried and true Wilson Benesch.... It's not cheap though!...but..

Imo, the MINI deserves the "BEST"!

Still,who knows?...The REL could work.
