Fitted with an all-new aluminium bass cone, the best compact sub just got better, with the REL Tzero MKIII.

Compact sub
Ideal for smaller rooms and apartments, the Tzero MKIII gives you the famous REL bass depth and timing, but without the bulk and ultimate volume of their larger models. It makes the perfect complement to a small pair of hi-fi speakers, a compact AV system or even a soundbar/base with subwoofer output.

All-new aluminium driver for punchier sound
Always a hard-hitter for its size, the MKIII version of this classic sub is now fitted with an improved woofer, for even punchier bass. With its aluminium cone, the woofer combines the ideal talents of rigidity and light weight. This makes it fast and responsive, meaning you get a bass with a spring in its step, for perfect rhythm and timing.

Bass power for smaller rooms
Although best suited to smaller, rather than larger rooms, the Tzero delivers impressive bass depth for its size. Featuring a 100 watt, Class D amplifier, this subwoofer easily improves the response of most standmount speakers and even some smaller floorstanders, too.

Ideal for twin sub installations
Many of today's AV receivers offer the ability to connect two subwoofers in a .2 configuration. As two smaller subs provide a more even spread of sound and greater agility, this can be a tempting option for many. The Tzeros work especially well when paired, and make a great choice for stereo systems. Place a sub next to each speaker and be astounded by the bass improvement. With your main speakers freed from bass duties, they can dedicate themselves entirely to the mid-range, enhancing the vocal performance as a further benefit.

Separate inputs for Hi-Fi and AV
If you use your subwoofer with both home cinema and hi-fi, the REL Tzero is ideal. Whereas films often require the sub to be turned up for the greatest thrills, music demands a more subtle approach. For this reason, the REL Tzero MKIII has separate inputs for high and low level sources, and separate level controls for stereo and LFE .1 surround. This means you get the ideal levels for both hi-fi and AV, without having to change the settings.

Quality finish
Boasting REL's legendary build quality and finish, the Tzero has to be one of the most attractive-looking subwoofers in its class. With 5-coats of paint, the deep, piano gloss finish in black or white looks sumptuous. Smart aluminium feet keep it lifted safely off the floor.

For a compact sub with a powerful punch, the REL Tzero MKIII is the best yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic addition to stereo speakers I was never 100% happy with my Cambride Audio AXA35 and Dali Spektor 2's and was thinking I would have to upgrade to a much more expensive system to get the sound I wanted. I thought that maybe adding a sub would be a good stopgap until I could afford a new amp and speakers so did some research and found REL were the most well regarded sub manufacturers. I contacted REL and asked them what they would recommend for my situation and they said that the T-Zero would be a fine compliment to my system. My local RS had just taken one in for stock so I snapped it up, brought it home and plugged it in. My first impressions were underwhelming but after checking out the handy guides on YouTube from REL on placement and tweaking I started experimenting and after a couple of hours I had it set up perfectly. I can't believe the difference this sub has made as well as expanding the frequency range I am hearing in recordings it has somehow expanded the entire soundstage making the whole experience of listening to music much more enjoyable to the point that I am now truely satisfied with my setup and am no longer considering spending £1000+ on upgrades. One thing that does need to be said is that this is a small sub and in order for it to work as intended it needs to be placed in a corner of the room and quite precisely so that the rooms dynamics allow the sound pressure waves get to your main listening position, therefore the full benefits of this sub are only experienced by the person in the listening position. So if you are looking for something that will serve in a family home theatre setup this may not be the right sub for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must be the best sub for the money Paired with LS50 Meta, its underpinning the speakers lovely, took 10 minutes to setup (crossover at 80 or just over half way, play an 80hz sine wave and flick the phase switch until you get the loudest tone, you can use an sound pressure meter app policed in your listening position to measure the increase if its too close to tell) and sounds absolutely superb, as always the team at the Nottingham store went above and beyond for me today, many thanks to Rob and Tony

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sublime. Once I got it working. Running it with a pair of Mordaunt Short 902i powered by a Marantz NR1200. The sound is now complete. This has filled the bottom end out nicely. I'm staggered by the articulation. Never experienced a quality sub before do I was just expecting a general bassy hum, but the bass is defined beautifully. I'm hearing details in basslines in music I'd never heard before. And when I'm watching films there is just more impact. One caveat: at one point I thought I would be returning the sub straight away. I followed the instructions for set up and nothing was happening. Realised there was no power because the power lead wouldn't stay connected to the unit. Never known a kettle plug connection you have to push taters deep to get any friction to hold it in place. And every piece of equipment I use at work has this type of power plug, so it's not like I'm not familiar. Anyway, I got it working and any doubts I had about my purchase were washed away as soon as I started listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REL Tzero MK3 I bought a 5.1 speaker package to replace ones that were damaged in a home move but was seriously disappointed with the subwoofer that came in the bundle, after 3 replacements I contacted Richers Web aftersales team to discuss options. I spoke to one of the team who recommended the REL Tzero MK3. Upon delivery I was initially surprised at the size of it and didn't hold much hope out of it fulfilling the task the previous sub did, how wrong was I! Don't let the diminutive size deceive you, this thing kicks out some serious bass. I connected it as shown in the instructions and from then on I have been massively impressed, so impressed in fact I have ordered another one to compliment the first. Let me tell you from the high gloss finish to the quality of the construction and obviously the sound output this sub gives the previous sub a kick in the nethers. If your still not sure give your local Richers a call and ask for a demonstration, you will be glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing difference. Small enough to tuck away, the Rel added new life to our system that had a huge drop in bass after installing wooden flooring. Warmth returned to the sound, along with huge bass when required with a tiny tweak if the Rel volume control. It has opened up the overall sound of our existing speakers giving them a whole new life. We were originally thinking of new, larger speakers but the advice from Richersounds steered us towards a sub. Which was a big cost-saving. Highly recommend, great product, well made and easy to integrate into an existing system, powerful and subtle, it doesn’t overpower or overshadow the existing system. 14 day home trial is hard to beat too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features & simple, straightforward setup Bought this to compliment my KEF LS-50's. I missed the deep base from my previous floorstanding speakers, but had only a small footprint for a Sub-Woofer. The little REL Tzero fills the gap nicely. Very easy to initially setup for both Stereo Music and TV Surround sound. Gradually tweaking to get the balance just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little sub quality excellent After speaking to Lewis on the phone enquiring about a few different subwoofer to go with my setup he recommended the rel as it would be a perfect match for music and movies had it a few week now settled in nicely the quality and base is amazing no distortion at all compared to previous subs I have had would defiantly recommend to anyone looking

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound for such a small sub I have been looking for a small form-factor sub to fill-out the sound that I am missing from my bookshelf speakers and thought this REL would tick all the boxes. I'm really happy from the audio perspective - couldn't be happier if I'm honest. Something I am a little disappointed about was the connectivity. I am running monoblock amps to drive my speakers but this creates an issue when connecting to this particular unit. While I am able to cancel it to either the left or right high-level channels - the optimum solution according to REL - I am unable to do this with a monoblock setup. Having spoken to REL they suggest using either just one highlevel channel or take a feed from my pre-amp - but again this is a mono feed. I have found a work around for this by purchasing a "Monacor 211930 SMC-1 RCA Phono Stereo to Mono Converter Audio Signal Adaptor" which allowed me to take a stereo feed and feed the sub with a blended mono signal, without feeding back to my amps of pre-amp, interfering with the stereo signal and/or damaging my equipment. It's about £30 and does a good job as far as I am concerned.
