    Welcome to the REL Family
    Congratulations on your purchase of a Habitat1, the latest concept in ultra high-quality low bass for your
    environment. Your Habitat.
    Understanding the Customer’s Habitat:
    REL’s designers began with the understanding that more and more people are enjoying music, but in less
    traditional consumption formats. Today’s sophisticated consumer is as likely to enjoy music from a variety of
    sources that simply did not exist a decade ago. From streaming high resolution music files stored on a NAS
    drive, to listening to the world’s music offerings -via internet radio, a variety of internet-based streaming
    audio, as well as compact disc and analog sources such as vinyl records, consumers expect more functionality
    and flexibility from their music reproduction systems than at any time in history. Similarly, when they watch
    any video entertainment, the same plethora of choices for how to obtain source material applies.
    All these format delivery modes have one thing in common. Every source, whether music or video-based
    benefits from the inclusion of a REL sub bass system. Most of these new digital delivery formats suffer from
    severely compressed sound that is anemic and thin, a situation immediately improved by adding in a REL.

    Environmental Bass™:
    Moreover, our clients are not merely experiencing music, film and television-based entertainment via
    multiple new formats, they are choosing to use their environments in ways that better support their busy
    lifestyles. From sophisticated urban loft-dwellers, to suburban families leading busy lives raising children
    while on-the-go, to film lovers who wish to watch what they want, when they want we all are demanding
    more from our environment. So we created a product that takes (acoustical) advantage of the physics of
    ones’ environment, while blending quietly into the environment of the room, like a trusted servant.
    Wireless:
    Once our team achieved the requisite high standards for performance we demand of all REL subwoofers,
    we turned our attention to connectivity methods. We asked consumers and industry professionals for
    input, and almost universally, the feedback was a request for wireless connectivity that matched the sonic
    performance of Habitat1.
    In order to achieve high quality wireless, the REL team found a new chipset remarkable for its speed and
    lack of delay. Building on this foundation our engineering team took to the task of creating Longbow™, REL’s
    latest delivery method. Longbow™’s wireless system uses a proprietary security codec that ensures exceptional protection of the signal, while using zero digital compression—the bane of conventional wireless systems.
    This results in a dynamic, ultra wide bandwidth sound with almost zero delay. Practically speaking, Habitat1
    equipped with Longbow™ can be connected to very high end hard-wired systems with none of the delay
    issues that plague garden variety wireless systems. Additionally, the REL team was able to maintain all of the
    HIGH LEVEL and reference theater connectivity via wireless protocol. Yet another breakthrough for REL!
    This is the backdrop against which REL conceived, refined and has delivered Habitat1. An ultra-high
    performance subwoofer system that serves up the perfect recipe of sophisticated, thin, wall-mounted (or
    near-wall, if mounting Habitat1 is simply impossible), deep bass with style and sophistication via a proprietary
    wireless link we call Longbow™. Habitat1 works for you, the customer. REL’s customer. It offers looks that
    support virtually every design idiom, from modern to traditional and everything in between; and it does so
    while making remarkable bass. We hope you enjoy this addition to your lifestyle, your Habitat!

    Introduction to the Design of Habitat1
    Habitat1 Sub-Bass System
    Many or most loudspeakers emphasize the mid-bass. This is the range from 50 to 90 Hz. We at REL believe
    this is an incomplete approach and that loudspeakers need to be extended in the lower frequencies for
    true full range reproduction. All of our designs are true Sub-Bass Systems, meaning they are designed to
    reproduce very low frequencies (below 30 Hz) that are felt rather than heard. This is because we understand
    that music is full-range, as are sound effects on movies, and we intend for our products to reproduce all of
    these sounds, not just a narrow band.
    Habitat1 is equipped to allow you to take full advantage of Dolby Digital AC3, DTS, MPEG 2 and any other
    digital sound format that includes a dedicated Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel.
    The dedicated LFE input meets the tough specification laid down for digital 3/2.1 channels, usually known
    as 5.1. The output is nominally flat from 35 Hz – 90 Hz. It has a dedicated input level control which enables
    users to set the LFE level independently of the processor. This is important because not all processors offer
    control over this significant parameter. The LFE channel is frequently output at 10 dB higher levels than the
    other channels.
    The Habitat1 also has a high-level (speaker level) input with dedicated input level control. Uniquely, both
    the speaker level and the LFE input can be used simultaneously. This means you may set it up for the best
    possible 2-channel performance sound with your CDs or other stereo signals and instantly revert to using
    the Sub-Bass System as the dedicated LFE component when watching movies. This is a feature of real benefit
    if you wish to play music in stereo mode in the purist audiophile way and also in REL Theater Reference
    mode with no switching necessary. By connecting BOTH High Level and .1 concurrently and setting your
    processor to “Large” or “Full Range”, the best possible performance will be obtained. Consult the owner’s
    manual of your loudspeakers or consult with your dealer before setting to large as a few speakers cannot
    handle the bass that is then directed through to the main speakers.

    Connecting Up
    The Habitat1 is intended to be used with a REL Longbow™ transmitter which is supplied with each of these
    subwoofers. Both the Habitat1 subwoofer cabinet and the Longbow™ transmitter will require AC power
    from a wall plug. There is an AC cable supplied for the subwoofer cabinet and a power adapter cable supplied
    for the transmitter. The design intent here is to find the perfect place for the Habitat1 on a wall with the
    Longbow™ transmitter located remotely without long cables needed to connect an audio signal.
    We have designed the Habitat1 with connections on the back of the cabinet for users that wish to connect
    audio directly. In this case the transmitter will not be necessary and the user will have to contact the REL
    dealer for a 34’ 10” (10 meter) cable with a right angle Neutrik Speakon connector to fit between the cabinet
    and wall.
    It is not possible to use the Longbow™ wireless connection and a direct connection simultaneously.
    Always switch your system off before disconnecting any wires.
    ALWAYS connect using the REL HIGH-LEVEL input, unless your system simply cannot accommodate this.
    While rare, a few esoteric systems, such as those that deliver a pure digital signal to active speakers,
    preclude this possibility. To increase the versatility of connecting up, the Habitat1 has three separate inputs:
    A Neutrik Speakon socket and two phono sockets. This is to facilitate use with both two-channel stereo
    systems and AV surround sound systems.
    The HIGH-LEVEL, unbalanced, dual-channel (stereo) input is via a Neutrik Speakon connector which is
    connected to the power amplifier’s left and right channel speaker terminals. This has the advantage of
    ensuring that the REL receives exactly the same signal as the main speakers. This means that the character
    of the bass from the main system is carried forward into the sub-bass. This is a very important point and
    ensures far superior system integration of the sub-bass with the main system.
    The LOW-LEVEL input is via a phono jack that connects to either the .1/LFE output of a home cinema
    amplifier/processor or to the output of a stereo preamplifier.
    HIGH-LEVEL and .1/LFE inputs can be used simultaneously. The benefits are two-fold when used with a
    home cinema system. The .1 Input reproduces the .1/LFE channel and the HIGH-LEVEL connection underpins
    the main front speakers. The main front speakers should be set to the “large” option on the processor.
    See “Home Cinema Applications” for more information.

    Connecting to the Power Amplifier Using the Speakon HIGH-LEVEL INPUT
    To engage the Neutrik Speakon plug, insert fully into socket and rotate clockwise until locked.
    To remove the Neutrik Speakon plug, grip body of plug, place thumb on chrome lever, move lever backwards,
    rotate plug anticlockwise quarter turn and withdraw.
    The HIGH-LEVEL input is designed to accept the stereo (two-channel) signals from the speaker terminals of
    your receiver, integrated amplifier or basic amplifier. This has the advantage of ensuring that your subwoofer
    receives exactly the same signal as the main speakers, which means that the character of the bass from the
    main system is carried forward into the Sub-Bass System. This is a very important point and together with
    REL’s Natural RollOff™ circuitry, ensures far superior system integration of the Sub-Bass System with the
    main system.
    HIGH-LEVEL INPUT: Connections should be made to the same binding post on main amplifier as the main
    speakers. Red to amplifier main right speaker red terminal, yellow to amplifier main left speaker red terminal
    and black to amplifier main speaker black terminal, right or left but not both. Plug the Neutrik Speakon plug
    into the HIGH-LEVEL Speakon socket. Note: This connection does not draw power from the power amplifier
    and, yes, your REL is a powered sub bass system. However, by deriving its signal from the main power
    amplifier, better sound quality is achieved.
    .1/LFE INPUT: This requires a phono-to-phono cable and is a dedicated true .1 channel. This circuit therefore
    eliminates the normal Natural RollOff™ Crossover and passes the .1 LOW-LEVEL signal through with only the
    required 120Hz fourth-order filter.
    LOW-LEVEL INPUT: This single channel phono input allows for conventional connection to a preamplifier
    and should be used in the rare event that a HIGH-LEVEL connection proves incompatible. Plug one end of
    a single phono-phono cable into the LOW-LEVEL input jack of the REL and the other end into either the
    left or right channel output of your preamplifier. Because much sub-50Hz bass information is mono, there
    is little need to connect both left and right channels. Should your system require this style of connection –
    HIGH-LEVEL is preferred – additional performance is available by purchasing a second, matching REL and
    running each as separate stereo subs.

    These connections can be made on the Habitat1 through the REL Longbow™ transmitter, or direct to the
    back panel of the cabinet. In the case of connecting directly, only the subwoofer cabinet will need power.
    Using input connections to both the REL Longbow™ transmitter and direct to the Habitat1 back panel are
    not permitted.
    PHASE SWITCH: Used to set phase
    Position 0 / HIGH-LEVEL, LOW-LEVEL or LFE – 0 degrees phase
    Position 180 / HIGH-LEVEL, LOW-LEVEL or LFE – 180 degrees phase
    PHASE SELECTION AFFECTS BOTH HIGH- AND LOW-LEVEL INPUTS: Crossover is always engaged for
    HIGH-LEVEL INPUT. The .1/LFE signal does not pass through the crossover circuit.
    Making Connections
    It is helpful to know that you will almost always connect the REL to the input on the rear panel labeled
    “HIGH-LEVEL INPUT.” This connection is made to the REL Longbow™ transmitter using the supplied 6’ 6”
    (2 meter) cable, the bare leads of which connect to the speaker output terminals of the power amplifier.
    The easy and foolproof connection at the REL is done with a Neutrik Speakon connector. The purpose of
    connecting to the speaker output terminals is one of the unique secrets of REL’s success. By connecting to
    the high-level input on the REL from the amplifier, you build forward the sonic signature of your main
    system, including the tonal balance and timing cues of the entire electronics chain. In this way, the REL is
    fed the exact signal that is fed to the main speakers. If the user prefers to connect the high level directly
    to the Habitat1 subwoofer, please contact your dealer for a REL 34’ 10” (10 meter) cable with a right angle
    Neutrik Speakon connector (PN NL4FRX) to fit between the cabinet and the wall.
    Connecting
    HIGH-LEVEL connection, using the enclosed cable with the Neutrik Speakon connector, is always the first
    choice. This connection can be made without affecting the performance of the amplifier because the REL’s
    amplifier input impedance is 150,000 ohms, in effect not producing any additional demand whatsoever on
    the rest of your system.

    11

    • The standard HIGH-LEVEL hook up procedure is: attach the red wire to the amplifier’s right positive speaker
    output terminal; attach the yellow wire to the amplifier’s left positive speaker output terminal; attach
    the black wire to whichever of the amplifier’s ground output terminals is convenient; plug the Speakon
    connector into the Longbow™ wireless transmitter’s HIGH-LEVEL input. Use the Longbow™ for wireless
    connection. Use the HIGH-LEVEL input on the rear of the Habitat1 for direct wired connection. You must
    choose either wireless or direct wired as these two inputs cannot be used simultaneously.

    • For differential (i.e. fully balanced) amplifiers using one REL, simply use the standard connecting scheme
    with the exception of connecting the black wire to chassis ground (i.e. a metal bolt or screw, preferably
    not painted or anodized, on the chassis of the power amp or receiver), not to a negative speaker terminal,
    and then connecting into the HIGH-LEVEL input on the Longbow™ wireless transmitter. Please contact
    your dealer should there be any questions concerning this or any other hookup procedure.

    NOTE: The Habitat1 is equipped with internal circuitry to allow seamless connection to Class-D (digital) main
    amplifiers. If connecting to a Class-D amplifier, follow the above connection procedure for differential amplifiers.

    12



  • Page 16

    • If connecting two RELs in a stereo configuration, connect the black wire of each REL to the negative speaker
    terminal of the corresponding amplifier channel; twist together the red and yellow wires of each REL
    separately and connect each pair to the positive speaker terminal of the corresponding amplifier channel.

    • If connecting a single REL as a dedicated center channel sub, connect the black wire of the REL to the
    negative center channel speaker terminal; twist together the red and yellow wires and connect this pair
    to the positive center channel speaker terminal.

    13



  • Page 17

    • If connecting a REL as a dedicated rear channel sub, connect the black wire of the REL to either the left
    rear or right rear negative speaker terminal; connect the yellow wire to the left rear positive speaker
    terminal; connect the red wire to the right rear positive speaker terminal.

    LOW-LEVEL connection (via phono connector) is always an option if HIGH-LEVEL connection is not possible.
    When connecting to the LOW-LEVEL inputs in a system in which HIGH-LEVEL connection is not possible,
    such as if using internally-amplified speakers, connect a single phono cable between the LOW-LEVEL input
    jack of the Longbow™ wireless transmitter and either the left or right channel output of your preamplifier.
    Because virtually all sub-50Hz bass information is mono, there is no need to connect both left and right
    channels.
    When connecting to a home cinema system where a .1/LFE channel output is present, connect a single
    phono cable between the sub output of the processor/receiver and the .1/LFE input jack on the Longbow™
    wireless transmitter.
    REL Theater Reference™ Home Cinema Applications
    For Dolby Digital AC3 or other 5.1 theater systems, once the standard set-up for two-channel outlined
    above is complete, the LFE output from the processor or receiver should be connected to the .1/LFE input
    and appropriate volume adjustments made using the .1/LFE LEVEL control. For this configuration, you must
    set the processor to the “large” or “full range” setting for the left and right speakers in order for the REL to
    receive the bass signal via the high-level cable. In this configuration, the REL provides support for both the
    left and right speakers for two-channel listening, and support for the LFE when movies are playing. Most
    processors will allow you to defeat the subwoofer output when listening in the two-channel mode. The
    effect of this set-up is one of greatly increased dynamics in the mid-bass range, no bass bloat, and a greater
    degree of space and timing from the special audio effects.

    Pairing
    Now that the Longbow™ wireless transmitter is connected to you amplifier (ideally using the High Level
    cable), unpack the Habitat1 subwoofer and place on a clean sheet or towel to protect finish.
    Each Habitat1 comes pre-paired with its REL Longbow™ transmitter box. If the units need to be re-paired, or
    you would like to add more Habitat1 subs to the system, there are a few easy steps to follow.
    REL Habitat1 wireless sub bass systems come paired to a single transmitter out of the box. In the event that
    the sub and transmitter becomes un-paired, the owner must follow the procedure below to repair.


    1 M
     ake sure that the transmitter AC to DC wall plug supply is connected to an AC outlet, and that
    the barrel connector is connected to the transmitter. A blue LED on the front of the transmitter
    will indicate the unit is on by blinking in the standby pattern which is one flash per second.



    2 M
     ake sure that the sub is plugged into an AC outlet using the supplied AC cable and that the sub
    is turned on. Power switch is located on the rear panel.



    3 E xercise the momentary “Pair” switch on the transmitter located on its control face. This will
    make the transmitter look for a new sub. Note that the LED flash pattern will change to two
    blinks per second.



    4 Next exercise the momentary “Pair” switch on the sub located on the control panel.



    5 A
     t this point the sub and transmitter should find each other and pair together. This will be indicated
    by the blue LEDs on both the transmitter and control panel staying lit (no flashing).

    The REL Habitat1 wireless sub bass system can pair up to four subwoofers using one transmitter. To pair more
    than one sub to a single transmitter, follow the instructions above and repeat for each subwoofer added.
    When using two transmitters with two independent systems in proximity to each other
    (within the same house):


    1 Follow the pairing instructions above for the first system.



    2 Turn off the first transmitter by unplugging it.



    3 Follow the pairing instructions above for the second system.



    4 Turn the transmitter on for the first system back on.

    15

    Each Habitat1 will come out of the box independently paired to its own Longbow™ transmitter and will
    not have issues with “cross talk.” However, if there is a problem, repairing each Habitat1 for independent
    operation should eliminate cross talk.

    REL Set-Up Made Simple
    Now that you have the Long Bow transmitter box connected to your amplifier and wirelessly paired to
    Habitat1, it is time to choose a location and dial in Habitat1 for your specific room. Note, this section will
    help guide you in selecting the best location and choosing the basic settings for Habitat1, but will not discuss
    installation. The installation process will be discussed in detail in the next section.
    Before You Begin
    1 H
     abitat1 is unlike any other REL sub bass system and therefore requires special considerations for
    placement. Habitat1 is designed to be mounted on the wall and will take advantage of the entire wall
    to help generate deep bass pressurization.
    2 H
     abitat1 can be mounted to masonry or sheetrock walls. For sheetrock walls, it is NECESSARY that
    Habitat1 is anchored/screwed into studs in order to properly support long term use. The specialized
    brackets developed just for Habitat1 require mounting BOTH upper and lower right side screws into a
    stud as well as the upper bracket’s left side. The lower bracket comes supplied with an insert that must
    be GLUED and screwed into the wall. If one chooses not to use glue, expect rattles to develop.
    3 S tuds are structural members behind the surface of modern walls. There are generally two types of studs:
    wood or metal (typically aluminum). Usually there is a sheet of pre-manufactured building material, often
    referred to as sheetrock or gypsum rock, layered over the top of studs.

    16



  • Page 20

    4 If you do not know where the studs in your wall are located use a “studfinder” (an inexpensive electronic
    tool that uses electronic pulses to locate denser objects, like studs, behind the sheetrock).
    5 If your wall is constructed out of a different material that does not use sheetrock and studs see number
    6 and 7 in the below Setting Up section for more details. You may have a wider selection of locations
    for installation.
    6 N
     ext we will discuss selecting the best location and proper settings for Habitat1. Remember, Habitat1
    MUST be mounted to studs so you will have to find a balance between the best placement and the
    nearest wall stud.
    Setting Up
    Part I will discuss how to select the best location for Habitat1:
    Always set the Habitat1 on a clean sheet or towel to protect the finish.

     y having this bracket installed it will allow you to approximate the correct distance from the wall the

    Habitat1 will sit when installed and therefore allow for accurate listening tests.
    2 T he Process: To begin the set-up process, choose a piece of music that has a repetitive bass line that
    is very low in frequency. We suggest track four from the soundtrack to Sneakers (Columbia CK 53146).
    This has a repetitive bass drum throughout that gives you plenty of time to move the woofer around,
    but more importantly, the venue was quite large for this recording, and therefore it has a very deep and
    large-scale bass signature. This type of track is perfect for the set-up process and should be played at the

    17



  • Page 21

    highest reasonable level expected for system playback. If you do not have access to this exact track, any
    music that you are familiar with and has repetitive bass will work.
    F or the purpose of locating the Habitat1 set the controls to the following settings: Adjust the crossover
    to a point where the Habitat1 and speaker are sure to share frequencies (about halfway up or slightly
    higher for smaller speakers). Turn the HI/LOW level control up so that both the Habitat1 and speakers are
    roughly equal in volume. If using a low level connection then adjust low level volume knob instead of the
    HI/LOW level. Remember, we recommend using the High Level connection to obtain the best results.
     orking with a partner, one in the listening position and one at the Habitat1 manipulating the controls
    W
    and location, is the most effective and efficient way to set up the Habitat1. If working alone, the initial
    step in the set-up can be very effectively carried out from the location of the Habitat1. Trying to ignore all
    other music in the track, listen for the bass drum and its effect on the listening room.
    3 P
     hase Orientation: For steps this step, set Habitat1 on the floor near the speakers (use a clean and soft
    blanket to protect the bottom finish) the installed bracket length away from the wall. Adjusting for phase
    may be the single most critical step and, because it really is quite simple, it is often over-thought. Keep in
    mind that the correct phase is whichever position is the loudest or fullest.
    4 Positioning: The goal of this step is to pick the best wall to hang Habitat1 on. If you already know which
    wall you want to install the Habitat1 on, move to step 5. As you experiment with different wall choices
    try to hold Habitat1 so that the bottom of the unit is 10 to 12 inches (25 to 30 cm) off the ground and
    use the installed bracket (see step 1 under Setting Up) to judge proper distance from the wall. This will
    provide an approximate location (we will review left/right and up/down exact placement next) and
    allow you to judge the merits of each position. Remember, while you may have several wall choices the
    availability and location of studs will impact your decision.
    Front Wall Mounting: Mounting Habitat1 on the front wall of the room, in other words, the wall that
    the main speakers are positioned in front of will generate the best sonic results (same concept with
    conventional subwoofers). Front wall placement allows for the most linear true low bass wave launch,
    creates the best sense of pressurizing the room, and creates the best sense of keeping time and tempo
    with the music.
    S ide Wall Mounting: Side wall mounting works well also, just not quite as well as front wall mounting.
    Nevertheless, quite high levels of performance are available from the side wall location, as long as the
    subwoofer is located in the range between the front corner and the speaker location. In some Instances,
    it may be fine to place the Habitat1 slightly in front of the main speaker (towards the listener), but

    18



  • Page 22

    moving it too far along the side wall will result in the listener’s ability to locate it, reducing the seamless
    integrative abilities inherent to the REL design.
    If you are still unsure about which wall to choose and have several options with possible stud locations
    move on to step 4 which will further guide your decision.
    5 L eft/Right (Horizontal) Location: Now that you have selected the wall for the Habitat1 it is time to
    determine the left/right location on the wall. In some cases you will only have one option (or limited
    options – typically standard walls only offer 2-3 useful locations) based where the studs are located. Keep
    the stud locations in mind as you complete this step because they dictate how much movement left/right
    you have to experiment with. Move the Habitat1 along the wall in the left/right plane stopping at each
    possible stud location with the Habitat1 approximately three feet off the ground and the bracket distance
    away from the wall. Listen for the best bass pressurization, extension, and integration at each location.
    Remember, if you are using the side wall we suggest that you locate the Habitat1 behind the main speakers
    if possible (in the range between the front corner and the speaker location).
    If you are still unsure about which stud to choose on a particular wall and have several options move on
    to step 5 which will further guide your decision.
    6 Up/Down (Vertical) Location: Up until this point we have suggested holding the Habitat1 so that the
    bottom of the unit is approximately 10 to 12 inches (25 to 30 cm) off the ground. While this is a good
    estimate to use while choosing the wall and left/right location, to obtain the best possible performance
    the up/down location placement is essential. Just as you did previously, play a well-known piece of music
    with consistent, repetitively struck bass impulses and begin moving Habitat1 up and down the line of the
    stud (make sure to locate the edge of the bracket installed on the Habitat1 to the stud location). Slowly
    moving the subwoofer up the stud line on the wall, note and mark (lightly—no need to mark up your wall
    permanently) where the bas is strongest. At first, this may seem subtle, however, after doing it for a short
    time you should start to hear these stronger pulses quite clearly.
    If you were previously unsure about which stud location to choose and have several options do this
    up/down listening test for all possible locations and compare the results. This will help you make the
    best overall decision.
    Hint: If using an AV processor/receiver with the REL high level cable make sure the speakers are set to
    “Large” or “Full Range” in the settings menu.

    7 Selecting Location When Using Masonry Walls (Brick or Cement-based Building Blocks): All of the same
    notes and suggestions apply to locating Habitat1 in a room built using masonry. However, you are no longer
    limited by stud locations resulting in far more choices in placement. Use the same voicing technique
    described above, and note that front wall placement still generally results in the best overall performance.
    8 Selecting Location When Using Plaster Walls: Plaster walls represent special challenges since the
    plaster itself is exceptionally brittle. Unless you have extensive experience working with plaster walls,
    it is recommended that installation of Habitat1 be performed by an experience professional. Use the
    same voicing technique described above, and note that front wall placement still generally results in the
    best overall performance.
    Part II will discuss how to determine the proper settings for Habitat1. You will revisit this section after
    installation:
    9 Crossover and Level Settings: To determine the crossover point, take the volume of the REL (using the
    HI/LOW Level control) all the way down, and put the crossover to 25 Hz. At this point bring the REL’s
    volume back up slowly to the point where you have achieved a subtle balance, i.e. the point at which
    you can hear the REL even with the main speakers playing. Now, bring the crossover point up until it
    is obviously too high; at this point bring it down to the appropriate lower setting. For all intents and
    purposes, this is the correct crossover point. Once this stage has been reached, subtle changes to
    volume and crossover can be made to provide the last bit of complete and seamless integration.
     int: There may be a tendency to set the crossover point too high and the volume of the Sub-Bass system
    H
    too low when first learning how to integrate a REL with the system, the fear being one of overwhelming the
    main speakers with bass. But in doing so, the resulting set-up will be lacking in bass depth and dynamics.
    The proper crossover point and volume setting will increase overall dynamics, allow for extended bass
    frequencies, and improve soundstage properties. Note that volume must be adjusted in conjunction with
    crossover changes. In general, when selecting a lower crossover point, more volume may need to be applied.
    10 F inal Checks: Now that your Habitat1 has the proper settings confirm that you are satisfied with the
    wall location you previously chose by holding it in place. If you are satisfied, you are now ready to install
    the Habitat1. Be sure to revisit step 9 after you have properly installed the Habitat1 to make subtle
    changes to the crossover and gain settings.

    Running In
    Care taken over running in will be rewarded by many years of pleasurable use. Both the electronics and the
    drive unit will benefit from an initial period of carefully controlled use. Possible damage may be sustained
    by running in the unit at too high a volume setting over an extended period. On the other hand, by taking a
    little care over this initial period, about 24 hours of actual use, a longer life with an eventual higher potential
    performance is assured.
    Care and Polishing
    The cabinets are best maintained by using a light automotive spray-on wax and a micro fiber cloth. (We use
    a spray-on made by a company called Griot’s Garage™. While this may not be available in all markets, you
    can use a similar product.) Take care not to spray the aluminum badge. Do not place objects, such as drinks
    on top of your REL Habitat1. Never use a dry cloth on this finish.
    REL Theater Reference 3D Bass™
    While slightly more complicated than the basic REL Theater Reference scheme, use of three RELs produces
    a number of noteworthy benefits and proves the most cost effective method of achieving professional
    Dolby 5.1 standard bass performance. REL Theater Reference 3D Bass™ produces true full range performance
    from the three primary zones of reproduction in theater sound resulting in a far more natural and immersive
    experience than ANY single sub can produce. For REL Theater Reference 3D Bass™ each Habitat1 will
    require an independent Longbow™ transmitter box.
    1 T he main L/R speakers should be connected to the primary REL using REL Theater Reference connection.
    This unit forms the foundation of your theater system’s performance and so should be perfectly matched
    to one’s main speakers.
    2 In the rear corner (ideally that which is opposite the primary sub), connect a second REL to the rear
    speakers using REL Theater Reference connectivity. The purpose of the rear channel REL is to ensure
    proper front-to-rear balance and weight; too often virtually ALL the power and weight in a theater comes
    from the front and it produces unnatural weighting as well as hot spots. By placing a rear REL diagonally
    opposite, bass transects the room on a tangent and has the effect of greatly smoothing overall in-room
    response of your RELs. This unit need not be a duplicate of your primary REL; instead it should match
    well with your surround speakers.

    21



  • Page 25

    3 C
     onnect to the center channel a third REL using ONLY the HIGH-LEVEL connection. This may be easily
    accomplished by connecting directly to the connection terminals on the rear of the center channel
    speaker. To do so, first twist the red and yellow leads together and connect to the positive terminal, then
    connect the remaining black lead to the negative (black) terminal on the rear of the speaker. The purpose
    of the third “center” REL is to ensure the center channel can keep up with the scale, weight and dynamics
    the main system now has. Location should be anywhere from the opposite corner of the front wall to
    somewhere in the middle of the front wall, listen for best integration with the center channel speaker.
    Some people prefer to use the REL as an actual pediment or stand for their center channel, the choice
    is yours. Again, this unit need NOT be an exact duplicate of the primary REL but should be chosen for its
    acoustic ability to mate seamlessly with your center channel.
    First, carefully set-up and dial in the primary REL, then move to the rear REL and balance this against the main
    REL. Care must be taken to ensure phase is identical on both RELs as accidentally reversing phase of one
    relative to the other will result in a dramatic reduction in bass output. Finally, carefully dial in the performance
    of the center channel sub. Hint: To make this easier, once the primary REL has been dialed in, unplug it using
    the Speakon connection from the system and dial in the rear, followed by the center channel REL.
    Genuine sticklers for perfection find it easiest to tune in sections. For example, connect ONLY the L/R mains
    and the primary REL. Next, tune ONLY the rear surrounds and the rear REL. Finally, listen to and tune ONLY
    the center channel with the center REL. When you have accomplished this task, plug all three units in and
    re-check your gain settings as the cumulative effect of hooking all three up will usually result in, temporarily,
    excessive output. Work carefully and methodically to reduce the settings on primary, then rear, and finally
    center channel RELs and in a few minutes balance should be restored. However, the net result of all your
    tuning will be a sound that utterly immerses the theater owner in a rich natural wash of bass that suffuses the
    room effortlessly, rather than what is often experienced as too loud a bass balance pushing uncomfortably
    at the listener.

    Mounting
    Before beginning the installation process, read the REL Setup Made Simple section for instructions about
    how to select the best location for Habitat1.
    The following step by step instructions guide a Habitat1 user in mounting the cabinet to a typical home wall
    made of studs with drywall finish or brick masonry walls. The Habitat1 must be securely anchored to the wall.
    There are two sets of mounting brackets for the Habitat1 cabinet. Each set is made up of a wall side bracket
    and a cabinet side bracket that are designed to fit together to create a solid mounting for the Habitat1.
    Stud Wall Mounting
    The top bracket spans most of the length of the cabinet and should get mounted to two studs that are
    400mm (16 inches) apart. If the studs in your wall are farther apart, please contact your dealer for a longer
    bracket to span up to 457mm (18 inches). The bottom bracket is shorter and should get anchored to one
    stud and a sturdy drywall mount. Both brackets are required for the Habitat1 to function properly. Two
    people are recommended for proper installation.

    Running In
    Care taken over running in will be rewarded by many years of pleasurable use. Both the electronics and the
    drive unit will benefit from an initial period of carefully controlled use. Possible damage may be sustained
    by running in the unit at too high a volume setting over an extended period. On the other hand, by taking a
    little care over this initial period, about 24 hours of actual use, a longer life with an eventual higher potential
    performance is assured.
    Care and Polishing
    The cabinets are best maintained by using a light automotive spray-on wax and a micro fiber cloth. (We use
    a spray-on made by a company called Griot’s Garage™. While this may not be available in all markets, you
    can use a similar product). Take care not to spray the aluminum badge. Do not place objects, such as drinks
    on top of your REL Habitat1. Never use a dry cloth on this finish.
    Technical
    The Longbow™ transmitter provides true REL Theater Reference™ connectivity, permitting both HIGH LEVEL
    and LFE channels to be wirelessly fed to Habitat1. This occurs with virtually zero delay and a complete
    absence of compression.
    Habitat1 uses a very fast, gentle and transparent filter intended to allow excellent impulse response
    and a natural sound. We refer to this circuit as Natural Rolloff™. Most subs use slow, very steep filters that
    lend an unnatural, machine-like quality to the sound. The Habitat1 employs a highly refined Class-D amplifier
    which combines high performance and high efficiency. The drivers are simple, rugged and relatively light,
    and yet offers excellent self-damping so we are better able to reproduce the nuance of music and preserve
    the explosiveness of transients. Finally, the cabinets, apart from being physically beautiful, are like finely
