Product Description

The REL HT/1205 Subwoofer is designed specifically for Home Theatre use. It features a proprietary 12" CarbonGlas™ Driver and a powerful 500 Watt Class D Amplifier to deliver the sort of low end thrills a good home theatre setup deserves.


Allright! A REL Subwoofer specifically designed for making bomb blasts & volcano eruptions sound more realistic. Bring it on. This is the big brother in the HT range and brings some serious mumbo to the party. Guaranteed to blow your socks (and almost everything else) off. Get ready - this sucker has some serious punch and it's coming to get you.

HT/1205 home theatre subwoofer delivers a brand new 500W Class D power amplifier design, coupled to a 12” (300mm) long travel driver to deliver extremely high output in an attractive design. HT is a powerhouse for dedicated high powered home theatre applications, that will also transform the gaming experience and partners nicely with active wireless speakers.

Rethink What's Possible

Performance Home Theatre: Series HT is designed specifically to answer the challenge of creating affordably priced, exceptionally dynamic, pure home theatre powered subwoofers. The HT/1205 is the ideal combination of a lightweight, modern 12” CarbonGlas™ (300mm) driver coupled to a powerful 500W Class D amplifier that runs cool, producing extraordinary dynamics. Internally, REL developed specially adapted home theatre input filters that produce extremely flat bass down in the 20’s.

REL set out to build the loudest, relatively compact 12” unit available for pure home theatre use, and at truly attractive pricing. You’ll be the judge of how well they accomplished that goal, but critics are already lining up for reviews. REL believe the HT/1205 is destined to become a modern classic with svelte cabinet dimensions finished in an attractive, yet purposeful line grained black aluminium-look and topped by a 12mm thick beautifully polished top that serves to damp vibrations on the critical top surface of the cabinet.

For REL owners already enjoying the Reference , Series S and T/i subwoofers designed for both 2-channel and theatre use, the HT/1205 is designed to supplement their system’s .1/LFE output to produce extremely high output for chest rumbling home theatre special effects.

Purpose Built

Bring On The Special Effects: HT/1205 delivers a tough, simple, purpose-built appearance designed to communicate its sole mission; devastatingly high output home theatre. The cabinet’s width is minimised reducing visual mass, whilst depth is maximised to produce the deepest bass. REL selected tough, high-grade, horizontally oriented line-grained composite to wrap the entire cabinet, which is easily handled and easily cleaned. This more basic design vocabulary differs from the more refined finishes found in REL’s other lines, however the top surface that catches one’s eye is beautifully finished in 5 coats of hand rubbed lacquer, creating the visual appeal REL have come to be known for.

Size Matters

Twelve-Inch CarbonGlas™ Driver: REL’s driver prowess is on full display with the HT/1205, a modern 12” CarbonGlas™ (300mm) driver that is both lightweight and extremely stiff. While many competitors drone along with relatively slow, heavy cones HT/1205’s uses tough, stiff carbon fibre over 60% of the driven surface, backed by lightweight glassfibre. Naturally, REL use true high quality natural butyl surrounds as they remain soft and pliable for decades—something REL owners have come to expect. HT/1205’s new 12” CarbonGlas driver sets a new standard for affordable, high performance theatre-specific drivers.

500W Amplifier

Warn The Neighbours, It's Movie Night: 500 Watts: To accomplish the single-minded goal of exceedingly high output for large-scale theatre applications requires a special amplifier. REL’s NextGen5 Class D amplifier frees up interior space whilst running cool; this results in more cabinet volume and that translates into louder and deeper bass. 500 watts means the driver is never 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. REL are well-known for having the finest wireless purpose-built systems in the entire component audio world. Though HT-Air™ is affordable, it retains REL’s corporate fixation on zero compression and maximum dynamics. HT-Air is designed to leave old fashioned Bluetooth-based systems in the dust, delivering latency in the 16-20 millisecond range. This permits owners 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.

In The News

Although the HT/1003 is a departure from purist REL philosophy, the result is an outstanding-value home cinema subwoofer. For AVR owners after a compact, affordable bass box that delivers movie mayhem in spades, look no further. If your budget runs higher, a pair of HT/1003s could be a consideration. And for soundbar users looking for a sonic upgrade, you won't get more bang per buck than this. Home Cinema Choice
