The Future Is Now

Habitat1 is a brilliant new concept that takes sub bass to new levels by incorporating the room, your Habitat, into our design. It is common in design circles to speak of taking the room into account, but never has the complete system approach employed by REL been utilized so utterly to one singular purpose. Perfect, deep bass that emanates almost invisibly from somewhere hidden within the room.


THIS PRODUCT IS EX-DEMONSTRATION IN VERY GOOD CONDITION

Habitat1 is a brilliant new concept that takes sub bass to new levels by incorporating the room, your Habitat, into our design.

Drivers

Starting with a clean sheet of paper, we designed custom

bass mini-engines to produce truly awe inspiring bass in an ultra-thin

envelope

Ease of installation

We spent months engineering the mounting hardware to permit easy

and accurate mounting of Habitat1 onto a variety of wall structures

including masonry or brick walls, modern sheet rock and stud construction.

Wireless


Key to the design goals of the project is the complete absence of wires

needed to move the signal flawlessly from player to Habitat1. REL’s

LongbowTM employs a new state of the art chip that, unlike virtually every

other design, has ZERO compression. Hence the fidelity to the original

event is retained perfectly and delay is minimized. Result? Crisp, clear

bass in perfect time with the music or film.

Automatic detection and pairing is an important component to the REL

approach. Simply plug both Habitat1 and Longbow Wireless Transmitter

in within 30 seconds of each other and they will seek each other out and

auto pair. Forgot to do so in time? No issue, simply flick the pairing toggle

on each unit and pairing will occur within seconds.

Connectivity


LongbowTM Wireless Transmitter permits use of the full complement of REL

connectivity, including wireless transmission of BOTH High Level and .1/LFE

concurrently, thereby producing the rich full bass weight missing from conventional

subwoofers.

For home theater use the High Level and .1/LFE can be run at the same time as

each other to permit REL Reference Theater operation that re-establishes consistent,

full range bass in addition to special effects bass. With REL there is no need to turn

the sub bass system up for theater then turn it down for music.

Filter Technology


One of REL’s unique technologies is embedded within our input and filter boards.

This is so secret that even now, every unit is encased within an impregnable compound

that ensures destruction of critical components if disturbed. These circuits allow all

the speed and transparency of bass REL’s are famous for. Habitat1 can crossover as

low as 25Hz, ensuring the ability to blend perfectly under even very sophisticated speakers.

Floor Mount


Optional Habitat1 floor mount, when wall mounting is simply not an option.
