REL HT/1510 Subwoofer - Predator II

HT/1510 redefines the REL benchmark, with an alluring, modern presence that harmonises effectively with the classic REL style, while offering drastically amplified power and overhauled features.

Predator II provides enhanced performance in all areas: 1,000-watt amp with PerfectFilter™ inputs, 15” CarbonGlas™ driver with expanded capacity, and a dashing, sophisticated design not usually seen in home theatre set-ups. This facilitates integration with the Serie T/x and Serie S collections, creating a harmonious blend.

The Best Gets Even Better
Predator II is the full upgrade of HT/1510, builds on REL's original home theatre subwoofer (winner of Home Theatre of the Year awards on multiple continents) by upgrading every component and aspect.

These updates were determined based on three major insights.

1. The sound was so good, people wanted more power
2. Looks matter and despite being enjoyed in the dark, a home theatre subwoofer must look every bit as stunning as its audiophile-driven kin
3. Mating the HT/1510 with REL's high level models (Serie T/x and Serie S and Reference Models) produced dazzlingly rich, full continues theatre quality bass

The Predator II received a full 1,000-watt linear power supply amplifier and new 15” (380mm) driver with 40% greater power to give people what they wanted bigger, faster dynamics and flat out POWER.

This, combined with a gorgeous new cabinet with sleek new proportions to perfectly mate with other REL designs for a surround sound system that truly looks as beautiful as it sounds. REL also developed specialised HT versions of their award-winning PerfectFilter™ that delivers flatter deep bass, now down to 20 Hz. As icing on the cake, Predator II delivers the highest .1/LFE output of any REL. Ever.

Design Isn’t Everything, It’s the Only Thing
Predator II confidently delivers massive upgrades in design elegance, performance and execution of every detail in cabinet design.

Beauty, in this case, isn’t skin deep.

Using right-sized cabinetry, beautifully executed in horizontally line-grained black with a subtle sheen that evokes state of the art amplifiers. This brings to the HT range the same sleek, elegant proportions used in REL's Reference models at a fraction of the price. REL designs benefit from incorporating integral engineering solutions throughout their designs. Check out BrilliantBrace™.

Employed inside each HT/1510, it cradles the rear of the driver to eliminate shipping damage, quiets and redirects energy normally trapped in the driver, and quiets top, bottom and both sidewalls of the cabinet. Brilliant. The full depth rails used to support and reactively brace against the powerful movements such a powerful subwoofer can produce, also means Predator II can be stacked in Line Arrays of 3/channel for the ultimate in home theatre, to carry performance up the entire height of massive projection screens.

Of Course Size Matters, Now More Than Ever
There is simply something special about a large driver effortlessly distributing bass that small subs working hard can never match.

At the heart of every REL lies a truly great driver. Predator II’s 15” (380mm) driver retains the combination of glass fibre and carbon fibre centre cap that allows quick, reactive bass with slam that is the hallmark of great theatre sound. The lightweight glass fibre allows the 3” (75mm) voice coil to accelerate Predator II’s cone instantly, while the carbon fibre centre cap stiffens the composite structure, ensuring that even in the biggest of moments, its cone structure remains intact and un-phased by massive signals.

This allows for improved musical reproduction, as power capacity has been augmented to allow for an amplifying device with more power to give its maximum, secure in the knowledge that the speakers can handle it. This flagship product is designed for superior scale, velocity, and sound quality.

Now Hear This
If 800 watts wasn’t enough for you, surely the 1,000-watt Class A/B linear power supply amplifier in the new Predator II will cure what ails you. Featuring (4) x 400-watt mosfets and a monster power supply—it’s critically important to have massive current reserves for when the explosions and special effects hit. Predator II’s amplifier brings massive power with almost limitless reserves. This creates huge output that is available instantly, almost dismissively, and is delivered in the effortless manner worthy of the lead dog in the HT family.

Stand and Deliver
HT/1510 Predator offers one more uniquely REL innovation. For truly over the top performance, Predators are designed to be stacked up to three (3) units high using included REL Couplers™ that connect lower units to upper units.

Constructed from solid milled aluminium, the secure bolts between subs combine with the strong supports at the base of each cabinet to form an incredibly sturdy tower of bass. When used in stereo stacks, a total of (6) x 15” drivers push a maximum of 8000 watts to produce immense, awe-inspiring bass.

Airship II COMBINED WITH PREDATOR II UTTERLY TRANSFORMS HOME THEATRE
For the first time wireless High Level Input is made available to owners of Predator II.

When combined with REL’s newest Airship II, the latest state of the art Texas Instruments ADC-DAC chips and REL’s world- famous High Level Input circuitry, permit Predator II owners to add High Level Inputs driven off one’s main amplifier outputs.

When your receiver or av processor is set properly, this delivers professional transfer studio sound, sound that delivers rich, full range sound, at all times. Not the thin strained but once-in-awhile-something-goes-bang sound that annoys in traditional home theatre.
