”For AVR owners after a compact, affordable bass box that delivers movie mayhem in spades, look no further.” ‘Home Cinema Choice – Recommended’

Give punch to your home cinema and gaming

Designed to give maximum punch for your pound, the REL HT/1003 doesn’t hold back. Featuring a 10” CarbonGlas woofer, powered by a 300w digital amplifier, this REL sub has power aplenty. It’s this punch that gives movie soundtracks the ‘edge of seat’ suspense and gaming the totally immersive feeling of being part of the game.

REL quality
Although the HT/1003 goes deep and loud it doesn’t do this at the expense of sound quality. As you’d expect from this leading subwoofer brand, the HT/1003 uses quality components and a rigid cabinet to produce a low distortion, highly realistic bass. This means that a bass guitar, for example, actually sound like the real thing, rather than just an approximation of one.

Optional HT-Air for wireless connectivity
For wireless connectivity, simply purchase the HT-Air module. Unlike other wireless subs, the HT-Air uses a unique, zero compression, system developed by REL. Using a state-of-the-art chipset, the HT-Air wireless transmitter offers flawless signal quality with zero compression. Delivering a latency (lag) figure of just 16-20 milliseconds, it’s hugely superior to the more common Bluetooth method of wireless connection. Put simply, the bass keeps up and stays in time with the action.

Sleek good looks
Designed to be as narrow as possible, the HT/1003 has neat, compact style on its side. Rounded edges and elegant feet further reduce the visual bulk, making this subwoofer harmonise with your interior better than most. The black textured finish has an aluminium look which contrasts with the sleek gloss top plate.

Fully adjustable
Making sure you get the ideal sound for your room – not too boomy or too light – the HT/1003 features a range of adjustments. The level control establishes the volume while the Crossover control gives seamless integration with your existing speakers. If your room dictates that the sub is positioned behind you, then simply flick the phase switch and the sub will correctly align itself. If it’s tucked out of sight, then use the Auto power function for hands-free power-up.

Maximise every minute of your favourite movie or game, with the all-action REL HT/1003.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Door Shaking Bass Bought a couple of weeks ago, took a while setting it up to integrate nicely with existing kit (denon amp and Acoustic energy 2+1) but provides a depth of Bass that’s awesome, no good if you have attached neighbours though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REL HT1003 Phoned the store to check on stock levels, as I had been told by another store that there weren't any in stock local to me. The Store manager, checked the stock, and confirmed that they did in fact have the REL HT1003 in stock. He put the item on hold for me, so it would not be sold. Upon arriving at the store I was greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff, and even through they were very busy, offered to demo the item for me to ensure I would be happy with my purchase. After a brief discussion about my home setup, they confirmed my choice. Getting the REL HT1003 home, I unpacked it, and setup was amazingly easy. Having hardwood floor I swapped out the installed feet, with the supplied rubber feet, as this offered a more stable base. After a short time of dialling in the settings I was greeted with something that blended perfectly with my Dobly Atmos setup of Anthony Gallos A'Diva speakers. This certanly packs a punch for it's size. I have always had Rel Subwoofers, so was very keen for my new purchase. This is an amazing subwoofer for this price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sounding subwoofer I have had this REL subwoofer for two weeks now it was to replace an old Tannoy sub. In my otherwise excellent sounding Tannoy Arena setup. It has transformed the sound and balance of my system ( Denon AVR 6400 ) Whether playing blockbuster movies or music, l have a large collection of SACD and DVD Audio discs, they have never sounded better, the bass goes so low cut is always rhythmic tuneful and tight. Yes I fully recommend this subwoofer, don’t hesitate, buy one, you won’t regret. By the way the staff at the Chester branch were friendly,knowledgable and very helpful in my purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow what incredible sound! My current expensive sub has just given up the ghost so off to Richer Sounds for a replacement. Was demonstrated the REL 1003 which proved to be extremely adequate for the job. Bought it from very knowledgeable staff, who also price matched the deal, got it home and was blown away with the performance. It’s small but very punchy and much easier to set up. I am now over the moon with this purchase and will venture back to RS for more equipment in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact size, big sound for home cinema setup. This sub is ideal for people wanting big sound for their home cinema setup. It’s very well made, stylish and compact and is specially tuned to get the best sound for action movies, you can also purchase the add on WiFi unit allowing you to place the sub anywhere without the need for a wired connection to you’re amplifier, highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Our much loved B&W PV1 died on us a while ago, and from reading various forums I decided not to bother getting it repaired. After much reading I decided to go with this design from a highly respected manufacturer. The physical size had a lot to play in the final placement too, it fitted in perfectly. The important factor is - after a bit of tweaking to the crossover and volume level it does sound wonderful. It is being driven from a Denon 2310 7.1 unit, I`m still using the excellent M1 speakers I bought in 2008. It is ofcourse still running in but I am delighted with the product and at a sensible price too. Great delivery from Richer Sounds - thanks guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product, Over the Moon This is my second REL subwoofer, really really happy with it. It has been three weeks and the bass is just phenomenal. Best subwoofer I have ever bought. It is absolutely fantastic with movies and music, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumpingly good sub Brought this sub online, great price at £400. This little beast can go low and is sounding great between fronts. Main duties are film via projector but also adds a nice weight in stereo music. Very pleased with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Sound and Build I bought this product over a month ago and have been blown away by its performance with music and surround sound during movies. The build quality is amazing, i couldn't recommend this product enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit my needs perfectly I needed a subwoofer that would have quality sound without blowing the windows out. I have neighbours and they would be knocking at the door if i went up to the crazy big subwoofers. Chris at the Leeds store recommended this subwoofer to me and he was spot on. It looks amazing in the room. It has has nice tight punchy bass. I was watching Game of Thrones and when the dragons arrived, i was blown away. I don't think i've ever grinned so much in my life. It sounded amazing! I would recommend this subwoofer to anyone looking for great sounding bass without annoying the neighbours. It can get super loud if you want that though?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Madly Deeply This replaces a 12” BK Electronics sub. It slams out movies and delivers the missing octave for music. Sits under one speaker, a tidy solution to positioning. Built like Arnie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little subwoofer Had this subwoofer for a few weeks now and am really enjoying the improvement to my setup. Gives smooth bass that fills the room and gives great rumble with movies but also sounds great with music. Easy to use and setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Came from a sub twice the price and I'm not disappointed. This sub really comes into its own for home theatre use. It wasn't really bought for aestethics but it looks the part!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb hopme cinema sub. I have the T7 and have owned various other Rel sub's over the years. And have always bought Rel due to their ability to be so good with Music. But with a new cinema room to fill. I knew i didnt need that. So focus on cimena only and you will be blown away. Amazing little sub that easily fills my 4m sqaure room. Thanks RS Southampton for your recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent home cinema subwoofer and easy to setup Subwoofer was very well packaged by REL and the quality of the product, in construction and sound is excellent. Setup was simple only minor issue was that the manual says that for the "Off/ On/Auto Switch" Auto On mode is right when in fact it is the middle position. Also speaker goes to auto standby after about 10 mins of no audio signal (not 30 mins as stated in the manual).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Muscular sound . Saw this on the wesite and fitted my needs. Replaced an old KEF Kube sub that had been on its last legs for some time. The KEF ‘eggs’ still perfect. The oomph has returned so very happy with my choice.The 4K blurays sound amazing, particularly Bladerunner 2049. Once again superb service from Mark and the team at Exeter, who always go above and beyond to make sure everything is hunky dory. Thanks again...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended For anybody looking for a "compact" subwoofer aimed at home cinema use at a reasonable price they should consider this. Build quality is fine for this price and sound quality great. Setup was easy, still tuning with the rest of my speakers and AV receiver. The subwoofer creates a surprising amount of bass for it's size. Still running the speaker in so I have not tried it to really high volume levels as REL recommends running the speaker in for 24 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, powerful sound Only had this a couple of weeks so it might still need some running in, however it's really added some depth to my setup which was 5.0 previously. I wanted bass that wasn't overpowering & blended in with the rest of the sound, I didn't want to sit there noticing exactly when it was & wasn't activated. In normal viewing of most TV shows this is certainly true, the bass blends nicely with the rest of the sound making it sound to the ears like the fronts are producing it all. However if you want to really feel the bass, this thing can certainly do that too! It can pump out some real Cinematic rumble if you turn it up, & in a reasonably large, irregular shape lounge too. Yes it was expensive compared to the rest of my setup, but it should last a while & when testing it in store next to cheaper subs it was just outright better to me! After trying a £250 sub, I'd rather have just skipped a sub altogether, but this price range is where it really started sounding good.
