Serie HT was designed specifically to answer the challenge of creating affordably priced, high performance, powered home theatre subwoofers. These models combine a lightweight, modern CarbonGlas™ driver and a powerful Class D amplifier. Internally, REL Series HT models employ specially adapted home theatre input filters that produce extremely flat bass down in the 20Hz range. The sonic result is extraordinarily dynamic and controlled.
The HT/1508 Predator is devastating when used in dedicated high powered home theatre applications. It will also transform the serious gamer’s experience and partners beautifully with larger speakers for music reproduction. HT/1508 is a unique combination of lightweight, modern 15” CarbonGlas™ (380mm) driver, coupled to a powerful 800W linear power supply amp that runs cool, producing extraordinary dynamics. It consumes merely 20 watts at idle. Internally, REL developed specially adapted home theatre input filters that produce extremely flat bass down into the low 20’s.
CUSTOM 15″ CarbonGlas™ DRIVER
REL designed the driver of the 1508 to be light and accurately reactive. Theatre sound can and should be at times light, playful, funny and at times terrifying or awe-inspiring. Deep bass that reacts quickly and effortlessly to these changes during a film creates a much more satisfying experience of the medium than typical theatre subs can supply.
Some may wonder why so much power is needed, but 800 watts RMS loafing along means Predator is rarely stressed. When the scene demands, having more than enough power means that the incredible output levels are delivered safely without risk of damage. The amplifier actually outputs peaks of around 1200 watts which makes for massive output. A traditional power supply is used with a huge 1.2KW transformer coupled to a Class D output stage meaning it runs efficiently. Predator demands only 20 watts of power consumption at idle; so little that most will simply leave it on all the time but when on holiday.
MORE THAN A SLEEK LOOK…
As with the entire HT range, Predator’s industrial design wastes nothing on ornamentation for its own sake and delivers a simple, yet satisfying, design that borrows themes of line-grained aluminium contrasting with a sophisticated, polished top surface. Instead of mere feet, Predator uses full depth rails necessary to better cope with the force it produces.
