How To Connect A REL

Connecting a Stereo Pair of RELs to Monoblock Amplifiers

If connecting 2 RELs, Connect the black wire of each REL to a ground lug or a chassis screw of the corresponding amplifier channel; twist together the red and yellow wires of each REL separately and connect each pair to the positive speaker terminal of the corresponding amplifier channel. In some instances, this will result in exceptionally high gain (output) from the RELs. If it seems simply too high in gain, please remove either the red or yellow wire from the twisted pair. This will reduce output by half and restore a natural dynamic. Note: You connect your left and right main speakers to the same terminals on your receiver or amplifier as the REL high level connection.
