The REL T-Zero enriches even modest systems with power and natural bass, bringing the quality and full REL connectivity suite, long throw drivers and powerful, reliable amplifiers to a new lower price point and dimension.
The T-Zero was conceived to be one of the most cost-effective high-performance products the designers and engineers at REL Acoustics could create. Many of the sonic virtues such as speed, warmth, and slam embodied in the T-Zero are the direct result of mechanical and acoustic advancements. In particular, the T-Zero utilises thick slabs of dense, acoustically inert MDF, masterfully bonded to create an exceptionally rigid, near-monocoque cabinet creating an inert structure that allows more of the music to emerge. The powerful and efficient Class D amplifier is mated to a down-firing 6.5" long-throw driver capable of launching a surprising amount of room filling bass that belies the T-Zero's size.
- Closed box, down-firing compact subwoofer delivers a big sound
- 100W RMS of power from the Class D amplifier
- 6.5" long-throw active driver for room-filling sound
- High-level, Low-level, & LFE inputs
- Finished with 5 coats of high-gloss black or white lacquer
Tzero is, in many ways, the most difficult design REL have ever executed because never before have they delivered so much for so little. 5 coats of lacquer, as in all Serie T/i, next-generation Class D amplifiers, High-level inputs, .1 separate input stages, rugged 6.5” main driver with exceptional output and low bass extension for its size means Tzero gives up little to much larger units from the competitors. Tzero is a miracle in miniature.
Tzero is built using a super stiff cabinet construction that drives the resonant frequency higher so it is more easily damped by the instrument-grade bracing. REL utilized 5 full coats of lacquer, and solid aluminium feet and badging because REL owners understand quality must extend throughout a product, not just in the most obvious locations. And its diminutive scale allows it to all-but-hide among the furnishings in your home.
At REL every clean sheet design begins by defining and designing the best bass engine for a given application. The long throw 6.5” is their smallest-to-date, but make no mistake it is powerful and articulate, able to fill medium-sized rooms effortlessly. Have a much larger space? Distribute them throughout for an unobtrusive spacious presentation of music and film sound.
Though Tzero is REL’s entry level, that doesn’t mean it can’t punch far above its weight class. 100W high current watts from a NextGen Class D amp means it holds its head high and is capable of delivering many years of satisfying performance.
The REL Connectivity Suite™ allows for using both high and low input options. The ability to blend and individually control both signals becomes helpful for a home cinema system where for example, the sub-bass system must reproduce both mainspeaker and .1/LFE low frequency content.
Connecting the T-Zero to a Class D main power amplifier will cause no problems thanks to REL-D™, a proprietary circuit that creates the proper grounding environment for most Class D amplifiers.T-Zero enjoys all the connectivity options found on all REL Sub-Bass Systems. For 2-channel systems the high-level connection uses a Neutrik Speakon connector. By connecting to the amplifier's speaker outputs, the sonic signature of the entire amplification chain is folded into the REL signal, thereby keeping timing and timbre cues consistent.
Serie T enriches even modest systems with power and natural bass, bringing the quality and full REL connectivity suite, long throw drivers and powerful, reliable amplifiers to a new lower price point and dimension.
T-Zero are every bit a REL, just designed to enhance the soundstage in the unique spaces we live. We started with the end user in mind, taking into account the challenges and opportunities smaller studios or apartments and studies or home offices present. Tzero reflect this end-use design, providing the fast, deep, substantive bass RELs are renowned for producing in a form that doesn't just accommodate these spaces, but leverages their unique qualities
