    I currently have a REL Q108 that I just bought. I noticed that this US version does not have the SLAM/DEPTH switch that the UK version Quake has. Am I missing something on this one, or is this just a gimmick that can be emulated through the controls available on the Q108?

    You may look at the back sides of the Quake and Q108 here (pp. 8-9).

    Seems like a gimmick to me ,why can't you have slam as well as depth ,having a "party" mode just seems cheep to me. :boring:
    I looks like its just filtered to give an higher output that doesn't drop below 40Hz,good if your in a "party" mood.

    As I understand, SLAM produces louder bass at the expense of going deeper and DEPTH gets down to the lower frequencies without experiencing distortion so it drops the sould level. Now I don't know how this is controlled. It probably overrides the settings you made with the other switches and controls to prevent the driver from getting any distortion or damaging it altogether.

    I write the distributor about the slam/depth switch and this is their response:
