REL Acoustics HT/1003 Subwoofer, HT-Air Wireless Compatible, Line Grained Black Composite
(as of Jul 02,2022 07:17:08 UTC – Details)
At REL Acoustics we prefer to refine, to build generationally upon a solid foundation while searching relentlessly for every possible way to legitimately improve upon our past performance. Serie HT is designed specifically to answer the challenge of creating affordable, exceptionally dynamic, pure home theater powered subwoofers with the ideal combination of a lightweight, modern CarbonGlas drivers coupled to a powerful Class D amplifier that runs cool, producing extraordinary dynamics. Internally, we developed specially adapted home theater input filters that produce extremely flat bass down in the 20Hz range.
Our Story: We make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus. No kidding ourselves that we can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. We just do our best to conquer our bit of it. From the beginning this has been a labor of love, born from a desire for a more perfect sound experience. It began with one man’s dissatisfaction with the performance of subwoofers available at the time. That search for better, that pursuit of perfect sound remains the driving force behind REL. It has persisted through changes in ownership, it has driven massive advancements in technology and innovations in designs. Turning loose the power, the drama and the fun that lies within great music and movies.
Our Purpose: Each day we come in to work in pursuit of only one intention, to produce the most raw, perfect, pure sound possible, to capture the raw intention of the artist. We use the best quality materials, employ the most exacting construction requirements. We think of the problem holistically. We pursue the chase of the perfect experience of sound with an obsessive passion and vigor.
We do it because we love sound. We believe sound can move people more than any other sense. We believe it’s the integration of the bass via the perfect subwoofer that makes everything else better. And, ultimately, there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from doing this well, creating something of unique quality, such that you know it is going to inspire. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s our reward.
Our Way: We obsess over the details, never satisfied, never finished, constantly refining, simplifying, building iteratively upon what has come before. This is the path to perfection, a never ending pursuit for better. We view the challenge simply, as the need to transform electrical currents into soundwaves that can extend the capabilities of loudspeakers. We then approach the situation holistically, looking at every aspect of the bass engine and improving any weakness or shortfall. Constantly testing and experimenting with new materials, engineering or design. Always striving to add more value with every improvement by delivering sound experiences, timeless beauty and reliability that outweigh their cost.
We take this approach on every model, no matter its size or cost. Because we believe the pursuit of prefect sound is a worthy endeavor, one that can start anywhere and last a lifetime. We hope you’ll join us.
Ideal positioning is located in one of two front corners nearest the location of the screen and main speakers. Corner positioning reinforces deep bass and produces more efficiency, output for a given volume setting. Take care to turn the sub inward at approximately a 45-degree angle to obtain best release of low notes.
* These are recommended best practices for positioning a REL Subwoofer, always refine placement and angle by ear.
** To obtain optimal performance from a REL subwoofer and extend the performance of your speakers, your main speakers must be setup properly. Always follow the setup instructions from your speaker manufacturer first, before setting up your REL.
Connect an RCA interconnect from your subwoofer output on your receiver or processor to the LFE/.1 input.
Move the phase switch from 0 to 180 positions and listen for whichever position is loudest or fullest. That is, when the position is working in harmony with your main speakers, reinforcing bass not cancelling it.
2. Corner Fine Tuning
With the REL fully into the corner, and pointed to the opposite corner, continuing to play the music, slowly pull the REL from the corner on the diagonal, line to opposite corner, equidistant from both side and rear wall. At a certain point the REL will audibly play louder, go lower in frequency extension, and truly pressurize the room.
Rotate the sub on from an imagined center point at the rear of the REL listening for the greatest level of output.
4. Final Settings
Now adjust the Level volume. The Level control should be at a setting where you can hear the REL even with the main speakers playing. This is Generally 15 clicks +/- 3 clicks. It should be in time with the impulses of the main speakers so you can hear the depth and dynamics of the low frequencies. Again, this setting is generally 15 clicks +/- 3 clicks.
