Neutrik Speakon plugs are very cool...been using them on pro gear for years. I did find an angled Speakon plug that is great for my REL (less stress on everything) and I had fun making the cables...much less expensive that way...shrink wrap tubes galore, and, weirdly, the plugs are made in Liechtenstein!
Speakon connectors are very easy to work with. They have set screw type internal terminations and come with two sizes of inserts to use as strain relief. I just made two different umbilical DC power cables with Speakon connectors to connect an outboard power supply to a preamp. For one cable I used bulk power cable and for the other I used bulk IC cable. These are terminated with Speakons at both ends.
I assume the REL comes with a Speakon input? If you know what cable you want to use, you could easily reterminate it with a Speakon connector, which is easily (and inexpensively) available from Parts Express. If you want to try a variety of different cables with your new sub, you could consider wiring up a Speakon connector to some short hook-up wires and then terminate those to a standard rca connector input (I assume you are connecting a standard low level sub cable?). An inexpensive rca input connector should also be available from Parts Express. Using that "adaptor" set-up, you could try a variety of sub cables that have standard terminations until you zero in on what you want, and then reterminate the REL end of that cable directly to a Speakon connector. I would try something like that before paying a bunch of money to have someone make a cable that I haven't heard before, or to pay to have someone reterminate cables for me.
