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.
BRING ON THE SPECIAL EFFECTS
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. We 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 have come to be known for.
Speed & Slam
TEN-INCH CARBONGLAS™ DRIVER
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 glasfibre. Naturally, REL use true high quality natural butyl surrounds as they remain soft and pliable for decades—something REL owners have come to expect.The new 10” CarbonGlas driver sets a new standard for affordable, high performance theater-specific drivers.
PUNCHING BEYOND ITS WEIGHT CLASS
300 Watts: To accomplish the single-minded goal of exceedingly high output for large-scale theatre in a such a compact footprint requires a special amplifier. The NextGen5 Class D amplifier frees 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 designed specific inverse filtering to permit our CarbonGlas driver to extend much deeper than conventional designs.

ZERO COMPRESSION WIRELESS COMPATABLE
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 their 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.
