”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 Blends in perfectly and plumbs the depths I bought an REL 5Ti about a year ago with the aim of uniting it with my Hi Fi. But it found its way onto my Home Theatre set up where it stayed. Being Social Distancing at home I have been rearranging my kit and 'pinched' the 5Ti to use with my Hi Fi where it is perhaps better suited. So what to replace it with on my HT system? After some investigation I went for the HT1003, and it's perfect. It reaches to about 24Hz which is plenty low and the controls are so easy that it integrates beautifully with the HT sound system. You are not aware of its existence most of the time where it just underpins the sound making it more real and spacious. In particular in a film thriller the threatening music that sits behind many scenes is beautifully highlighted. Then suddenly a gunshot or explosion reminds you of its quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, nice tight base I bought this a little over a week ago. I already had a good idea of what I was after and could afford. Having made many purchases previously I was already confident with the expertise shown by the Maidstone staff. A big thank you to Sebastian for his help and knowledge without the big sales pitch. It really did help especially with convincing my wife this was the one to go for. I have this Sub paired to a radius 225 centre with the aim to upgrade the rest as and when. I have my set up in a large open plan area and this sub still manages to fill the room. A good piece of kit for the money

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.
