SHATTERING PERFORMANCE BARRIERS
S/812 takes REL’s medium chassis concept to reference-like levels of performance and does so with style, beauty and devastating power. It delivers incredible levels of all ‘round performance for both music and film sound, gives customers a taste of what our reference models offer.
EXTREME PERFORMANCE, COMPACT PACKAGE
For S/510, every aspect of the previous generation’s inner workings were examined without regard to its critical and customer-driven success. We turned a fresh eye to power requirements, driver improvements, and specialty filters, upgrading each-to extract all the extra performance possible.
Home Cinema Choice Honors the S/812 With a Best Buy Award
What really impressed me isn’t just the power and depth of the bass, but also its nimbleness. The S/812 can deliver the kind of fast and precise low-end that not only suits music replay, but also picks out key low frequency effects in the best movie soundtracks.
Hi-Fi Choice Highly Recommends the S/510
The S/510 diggs deep and has the power and speed to delight with up tempo tracks and a subtlety that heightens engagement when the music demands. It’s inclusion adds scale and makes listening fun, which is really what it’s all about.
To permit its thin, aluminium to survive 800 watts and incredibly long stroke we added an ultra-lightweight backing of pure carbon fibre, strategically placed over portions of the rear surface of the cone.
STACKED FOR ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
In the real world, bass occurs with width, depth and height. By stacking up to 3 units per side the proper perspective and height of sonic events are illuminated.
MORE POWERFUL AMPLIFIERS
The increase in power is needed to deliver both the profound output levels needed for modern theatre, as well as the deepest bass in a high end 2-channel system.

What else can I say other than the fact that it’s a fair price, super easy to use, works every time and sounds great. That combination of attributes is rare in the audio world.
If you live in a condominium, apartment, or townhome type of environment, think about the quality of your sound insulation from your neighbors before purchasing a quality subwoofer. My neighbor already noticed and I do not listen to music loudly. This subwoofer adds a deep bottom when there, a bottom not noticeable in most rock music but there and begging in classical; it is strange, it is imperceptible most of the time and then it shows itself, I have set its volume very low after the neighbor downstairs noticed, the crossover near where REL recommends but it's difficult to get the settings right when you listen to equal amounts of classical, organ, and different versions of "rock / rock-n-roll." If the crossover is set too far left then it is almost as if it did not exist, too far to the right and everything has bass. It is a beautiful and tiny sub. I wish the proprietary cable were not huge, it could be thinner, and that it was not black. A white speaker should be provided with white wires, always, for both interconnects and power, specially at this price point. I would call this subwoofer too powerful for my particular settings - no carpet - lots of glazing - tile flooring - 707 S2 Bowers & Wilkins (which are already deep themselves) - Marantz M-CR611 - medium sized room.
So I have been upgrading my stereo over the last couple of months. I ended up with a fluance rt84 turntable, ELAC debut reference speakers , Vincent pho-8 phono amp and a SVS prime wireless sound base. I wanted to run two subs but I didn’t want to massive boxes taking up floor space. These little RELS are perfect they are half the size of the Monoprice sub that they are replacing. I hooked up just one of the RELS first just to see if I could tell a difference. Wow right out of the box just put in the corner it was so much better. I hadn’t realized how boomy and my old sub was.
Both the subs together are just phenomenal. I don’t know how to explain it but they make everything sound better. Not just the Low end but vocals and instruments sound better also. Plus they look really good. I highly recommend giving a couple of days you won’t be disappointed.
So this is the thrid REL I have purchased so I guess you could say I am a fan. I use this one in my office with the small sound system I have in there. It is paired with a set of Polk 2-way bookshelf driven by an older NAD pre and Emotiva A-100 amp. I use the high level input. It really does a good job of filling out the bottom ranges. It doesn't go to rock bottom like my big sub at home, but you will get more than you would expect from a 6 1/2" driver. If you use this in an appropriate setting you will not be disappointed. Another great piece by John and the boys!
We purchased the HT/1103 to augment a budget oriented system in our den (13 x 25) where we listen to a wide array of music, and also watch movies. The system consists of a Mac Mini running Roon Core, Allo USBridge Signature streamer feeding a NAD D3045 integrated amplifier via USB, which is then cabled to a pair of KEF Q150 speakers sitting atop Atacama 700 speaker stands. TV output to NAD D3045 via HDMI. Denon CD player output to NAD is coax. All cables are by Audioquest. The HT/1003 fit the bill on cost, size and the ability to integrate with the Q150's for playing both music and movies. We couldn't be happier with the sound for both. We are considering adding another HT/1003 for better room fill. Nice sub for the price.
I am using this subwoofer strictly for music playback in a 20x20 living room. This subwoofer has plenty of power for a room this size. I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of reproduction and it seamlessly blends with my current stereo set-up; PS Audio Electronics and PSB loudspeakers. Set up was a breeze. A remote to adjust volume and crossover frequency would be a great enhancement but probably not possible at this price point. Also a very small footprint and it’s easy to place. A very good value.
I purchased the subwoofer for my turntable setup. I use a upgraded rega p2, mofi ultra phono stage, audio engine hd6. Sounds amazing with powered speakers. Doesn’t overpower adds depth and clairety to the bass. Great build quality. Could not be happier with my purchase. Highly recommend.
Ich war eine Weile auf der Suche nach einer Steigerung zu meinem Canton Sub 600 Downfire.
Wunsch war ein geschlossener Frontfire.
Ich bin beim dem Standort vom Subwoofer etwas von den Maßen beschränkt.
Durch Zufall bin ich auf diesen Subwoofer von REL Acoustics aus Großbritannien gestoßen.
REL Acoustics fertigen ausschließlich Subwoofer.
Leider findet man im Netz nur wenige Rezensionen.
Deshalb an dieser Stelle meine Rezension.
Einsatz mit kleinen Satellitenlautsprechern von Teufel Cubycon 2 und Verstärker Denon AVR X2600H DAB.
Dieser Subwoofer macht alles RICHTIG!
Durch die geschlossene Bauweise sehr sehr sehr präzise.
Er bildet ein sensationelles Bassfundament und holt die kleinen Satellitenlautsprecher bei 150 HZ ab.
Egal ob Kinofilm, TV-Sendungen oder Musik (von Klassik, Techno oder Instrumental), dieser Subwoofer meistert alles.
Geniales ausgewogenes Klangbild und bei Bedarf richtig viel Druck.
Nach dem einmessen am Verstärker, ist er bei einem viertel der Leistung am Subwoofer eingestellt.
Wohnzimmer 20 Quadratmeter offen zum Vorsaal (in Summe 30 Quadratmeter)
Kurzgesagt klingt dieser Woofer einfach nur Hammer!!!
Preis - Leisung = UNSCHLAGBAR!!!
I'm extremely happy to have done my research and found this company that has a great lineage. My family and I are enjoying this new edition to our home theater and we're contemplating buying another one to match the performance of this sub woofer. The experience from initial purchase, fast delivery and set up has been very positive. I can't wait to have it broken in to see the ultimate performance this sub woofer has to offer. Thank you REL!
I have an HT1003 mated with a pair of Kef LSX's. Really good depth and continually hearing new things in music I thought I knew!
This tiny little subwoofer is magical. I have these dual subs in my living room. This sub elevates music to next level. Recomended sub for living room. Very happy with my purchase. Blends very well with my Dali oberon 5s. Highly recommend.
If your looking for a high quality subwoofer that won’t leave you in the poor house, this is it! What an incredible piece of equipment it easily provides theater quality sound for my open living room. Highly recommend!
Good looking, powerful bass and proper size for living room.
Our B&W PV1 died on us a short while ago and impossible to get a reliable repair done, so we needed a top class replacement that was very reliable but affordable. Delighted with our new HT1003 unit which after learning about fine tuning from REL`s excellent website, has blended in beautifully with our main home theatre system.
Thanks guys - great job.
I purchased the H/3 it is awesome Rel did it again thanks rel 5 star
