Brains & Brawn
Right Sized Power & Control
Though Tzero MKIII is REL’s entry level, that doesn’t mean it can’t punch far above its weight class. 100 high-current watts from a NextGen Class D amp means it holds its head high and is capable of delivering many years of satisfying performance. We feature the same high-quality input filters, crossovers and limiters as our larger models. Tzero MKII includes a full REL connectivity suite, fast 8ms delay filter set and our famed High Level Input as well as a separate .1/LFE input with its own level control and a standby circuit that reliably comes alive at very low levels.
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!
