Compact REL Subwoofer Tailored for Home Theaters and Gaming: 500-Watt HT/1205 Also Pairs with Active Wireless Sspeakers, Delivers Special-Effects Thrills and Low-End Responsiveness

REL has long set the industry standard for high-performance, exceptionally dynamic, aesthetically pleasing subwoofers – particularly those that offer a seamless complement to high-end audio systems. With its compact HT/1205 subwoofer, the British company addresses the need for an outstanding yet affordably priced subwoofer tailored for modern home-theater and gaming applications – as well as the growing field of active wireless loudspeakers. The closed-box HT/1205 is also zero-compression wireless compatible via REL's HT-Air system, meaning you can place it where it works best without having deal with cables.

Featuring a brand-new 500W Class D power amplifier coupled to a 12-inch long-travel CarbonGlas driver that provides extremely high output, HT/1205's engine runs very cool all the while delivering tremendous frequency response, flat, deep, and taut bass, and the chest-stirring rumble everyone desires when watching action films or listening to an invigorating recording. Its minimized cabinet width reduces visual mass, while its maximized depth serves the low-end. Dual-purpose low-level stereo inputs abet daisy-chain low-level stereo outputs. For easy cleaning and handling, REL uses high-grade, horizontally oriented line-grained composite on the outside and crowns HT/1205 with a top surface finished with five coats of hand-rubbed lacquer – an REL hallmark.

If you currently have a soundbar or no dedicated audio at all, the 38-pound HT/1205 will prove eye- and ear-opening in its abilities to make home cinema and today's action-packed games come alive. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

Trademarked 12-Inch CarbonGlas Driver
REL's driver prowess is on full display via a modern 12-inch CarbonGlas driver that is both lightweight and extremely stiff. While many competitors use relatively slow, heavy cones, HT/1205 employs tough, stiff carbon fiber over 60% of the driven surface. Its high-quality natural butyl surrounds remain soft and pliable – and are something REL owners have come to expect.

Alert the Neighbors: It's Movie Night
To accomplish its single-minded goal of exceedingly high output for large-scale theater applications requires a special amplifier. REL's NextGen5 Class D amplifier frees up interior space whilst running cool, resulting in more cabinet volume that translates into louder and deeper bass. HT/1205's 500-watt output means the driver never is allowed to starve for power, ensuring a long-running reliable design. Within HT/1205's input filter, REL designed in specific inverse filtering to permit the CarbonGlas driver to extend much deeper than traditional designs.

Zero-Compression Wireless Compatible
There is wireless and there is REL wireless. HT-Air retains REL's fixation on zero compression and maximum dynamics, and it's designed to leave old-fashioned Bluetooth-based systems in the dust, delivery latency in the 16-20 millisecond range. The latter permits you to place your HT/1205 where it works best for you without resorting to unsightly cables being strewn across the landscape of your living room, all while retaining REL's category-leading super-fast wireless setup.
