Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around.

"REL's technology is impressive and the output is, too." Home Cinema Choice - Best Buy.

Wall-mounted

With a depth of just 114mm, the REL Habitat 1 is no more obtrusive than a typical wall heater. Getting the subwoofer off the floor and mounted on the wall also frees up valuable floor space. As you'd expect from REL, the Habitat 1 is exceptionally well made. With its deep gloss finish, fine detailing and subtle grille cover, this is a subwoofer that hides its modest bulk extremely well.

Wireless connectivity
A wireless transmitter means you only need to plug the sub into a mains supply and that's it. Unlike other wireless subs, the Habitat 1 uses a unique, compression-free, system developed by REL. Using a state-of-the-art chipset, the Longbow wireless transmitter offers flawless signal quality with zero compression. With a maximum range of around 15m and a more typical reach of around 9m, the wireless functionality is stable in the vast majority of listening rooms.

100% REL sound
Using twin, active 6.5" woofers, the Habitat provides a bass response that's not only deep but also, clean, agile and punchy. For even greater clout, a 10" passive cone mounted at the rear makes the most of the cabinet's internal air pressure, giving added reinforcement and enhanced bass efficiency. Keeping the active drive units tightly in check is a punchy 150W Class D, digital amplifier.

Separate hi-fi and home cinema inputs
Traditionally, the problem with using a sub with both home cinema and music systems is the difference in presence required. Whereas films often require the sub to be turned up for the greatest thrills, music demands a more subtle approach. The REL T9 provides separate inputs for high and low level sources for separate controls for stereo and LFE .1 surround, enabling the ideal levels for each.

With the REL Habitat 1 you can at last enjoy serious bass from a room-friendly subwoofer!

REL HABITAT 1 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best match for my usage. After a few, very helpful discussions with Sam, at the Newcastle branch, I opted for the Habitat. The performance parameters/specifications were well within what I wanted, but the Habitat, especially as it includes the Longbow wireless transmitter gave me the widest range of placement and home accommodation options, and its slim "radiator look" rather than the 'big square box' fits better into my room. I'm still adjusting and tweaking but after a short initial set up to acclimatise and run in the Rel the subwoofer is definitely adding greatly to the overall sound quality, the mid range clarity of the main speakers has really opened up and I am very pleased with everything. I have not fixed the unit to the wall yet, but having handled the unit a bit, its quite weighty, the instructions are clear and comprehensibe but it is IMHO a 2 person job to safely mount the Habitat to a wall.
