For when there is simply neither the space nor the need for all the output of a larger HT model. HT/1003 applies the same approach as its impressive stable mate and scales it down by just a little. 10” high-powered, long throw driver and 300W means it has plenty of power on demand. This unit is intended primarily for high powered home theater applications, immersive gaming set-ups, and pairs nicely with active powered loudspeakers. Scaled down design, up-sized performance.
REL home theater-focused Serie HT line is designed specifically to answer the challenge of affordably priced, highly dynamic pure home theater powered subwoofers in a handsome, compact package that makes it easy to tuck a few of these into most environments. The HT/1003 combines a lightweight, modern 10” CarbonGlas™ (250 mm) driver, coupled to a powerful 300W Class D amplifier that runs cool, producing startling dynamics. Internally, REL designed specially adapted home theater input filters that produce extremely flat bass down in the 20’s.
For REL owners already enjoying Serie T/i or S subwoofers designed for both 2-channel and theater use, the HT/1003 is designed to supplement their system’s .1/LFE output to produce even higher output, adding further depth to special effects to provide a true home theater experience. If you own a REL and want theater to be wildly dramatic, add in an HT (or a few).
HT/1003 delivers a tough, honest, purpose-built appearance designed to communicate its sole mission; extremely high output home theater at bargain pricing. The cabinet’s width is minimized reducing visual mass, whilst depth is maximized to produce the deepest bass. REL selected tough, high-grade, horizontally oriented line-grained composite to wrap the entire cabinet. Easily handled, easily cleaned. Yet, the top surface that one’s eye sees is beautifully finished in 5 coats of hand rubbed lacquer, creating the visual appeal REL Acoustics have come to be known for.
REL’s driver prowess is on full display with the HT/1003, a modern 10” CarbonGlas™ (250mm) driver that is both lightweight and extremely stiff. While many competitors drone along with relatively slow, heavy cones HT/1003 uses tough, stiff carbon fibre over 60% of the driven surface, backed by lightweight glassfibre. Naturally, REL use true high quality natural butyl surrounds as they remain soft and pliable for decades—something REL owners have come to expect. We believe the new 10” CarbonGlas driver sets a new standard for affordable, high performance theater-specific drivers.
There is wireless and there is REL wireless. REL are well-known for having the finest wireless purpose-built systems in the component audio world. Though HT-Air™ is affordable, it retains REL's corporate fixation on zero compression and maximum dynamics. HT-Air is designed to leave old fashioned Bluetooth-based systems in the dust, delivery latency in the 16-20 millisecond range. This permits owners to place their HT model wherever it works best for you without resorting to unsightly cables being strewn across the landscape of your living room.
