Small, But Mighty
REL’s 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 has designed specially adapted home theater input filters that produce extremely flat bass down in the 20’s.
Setting out to build the loudest, relatively compact, affordable 10” unit available for pure home theater use, REL has put forth a worthy competitor. The HT/1003 is designed to deliver the best bang (quite literally) for your buck when building a home theater system, featuring: crisp cabinet dimensions finished in an attractive, yet purposeful, line grained black aluminum-look and topped by a 12mm thick beautifully polished top that serves to damp vibrations on the critical top surface of the cabinet.
For REL owners already enjoying our 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).
Big Bang, Little Buck
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 has 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. Said driver is powered by a NextGen 5 class D amplifier offering 300 Watts of power and freeing up interior space whilst running cool. This results in more cabinet volume and that translates into ultra-deep bass despite its modest footprint. 300 watts means the driver is never starving for power ensuring high output, delivered effortlessly in a long running, reliable design. Within HT/1003’s input filter, REL has designed specific inverse filtering to permit our CarbonGlas driver to extend much deeper than conventional designs.
