Elimination of the floor to ceiling resonances
More power over distance
A line source system allow less sound level attenuation vs distance.
A point source system (like most conventional systems) placed in free space, get 6dB of attenuation each time we double the listening distance.
A line source system in free space, get 3dB attenuation each time we double the listening distance.
The full range of frequencies are radiated from the same full-range drivers that are all in the same vertical line.
There is no image distortion.
The wonderful imaging of the RUEL R+ lets you audibly locate the entire characteristic sound of each instrument more accurately in space and the details are simply magic.
In the horizontal dimension, the sound seem to come from almost anywhere but the speakers.
Sounds can be located in a wide horizontal area.
The sound, does not change at any listening height.
The RUEL R+ works well in large rooms as well as in smaller rooms.
There is very little sound attenuation when you are away from the speakers.
Close listening is also great, the sound level changes relatively little as you get closer.
The floor and the ceiling are part of the system, and the floor to ceiling room mode is eliminated.
The RUEL R+ is less dependant of the room acoustic and is very forgiving about room placement.
