The T-Zero MKIII is every bit a true REL, just smaller. It enriches even modest systems with power and natural bass by bringing the quality and full REL connectivity suite along with an all-new aluminium cone that provides much greater stiffness to the driver for punch and a powerful, reliable Class D amplifier, all at an attractive price point and size. Ideal for apartments, flats, studies, anywhere space is limited.
"REL claims that the T Zero is, in many ways, the most challenging design it has ever produced due to its very diminutive dimensions. I can't help but agree with this, as it's almost counterintuitively effective despite its tiny size. This makes it a great first subwoofer, particularly if you have a small listening space and/or bookshelf speakers. Whatever your philosophical position on subwoofers is, it's hard to argue against the value for money."
T-Zero is, in many ways, the most difficult design REL have ever executed because never before have they delivered so much for so little. Five coats of your choice of black or white high gloss lacquer as in all Serie T, NextGen Class D amplifiers, their famous High-Level Input, plus a separate .1/LFE input stage with its own volume control to get theatre levels AND music perfect without racing to adjust or looking for a remote control.
The jewel of the MKIII is the new aluminium-coned driver, a rugged 6.5” unit with exceptional output and low bass extension for its size. While it won’t drive medium or large rooms hard, we make plenty of larger models that handle that task, T-Zero MKIII remains a miracle in miniature

"You'll likely want to turn up the bass controls and crossover adjustment to explore what it will do. The answer is a lot – indeed, it can supply almost comedic levels of low frequencies. This done, you'll start edging things back to get it to work with your existing loudspeakers in your room. The permutations are endless, which is why this is such a versatile product."
At REL every design begins by defining and designing the best bass engine for a given application. With its new aluminium-coned long-throw 6.5” driver, the MKIII is powerful and articulate, delivering surprisingly deep bass. Able to fill smaller spaces effortlessly.
At REL every clean sheet design begins by defining and designing the best bass engine for a given application. While 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 T-Zero MKIII is REL’s entry level sub, that doesn’t mean it can’t punch far above its weight class. 100 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 T-Zero MkIII features the same high-quality input filters, crossovers and limiters as REL's larger models. T-Zero MkIII includes a full REL connectivity suite, fast 8ms delay filter set and our famed High-Level Input as well as a separate .1/LFE input with its own level control and a standby circuit that reliably comes alive at very low levels.
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 is 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. T-Zero 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
We make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus. No kidding ourselves that we can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. We just do our best to conquer our bit of it.
We obsess over the details, never satisfied, never finished, constantly refining, simplifying, building iteratively upon what has come before. This is the path to perfection, a never-ending pursuit for better.
From the beginning, this has been a labour of love, born from a desire for a more perfect sound experience. It began with one man’s dissatisfaction with the performance of subwoofers available at the time. That search for better, that pursuit of perfect sound remains the driving force behind REL. It has persisted through changes in ownership, it has driven massive advancements in technology and innovations in designs. Turning loose the power, the drama and the fun that lies within great music and movies.
We take this approach on every model, no matter its size or price. Because we believe the pursuit of perfect sound is a worthy endeavor, one that can start anywhere and last a lifetime. We hope you’ll join us.
