    Does anyone know if the crossover on the .1 LFE connection for a Rel T1 is separate from the the HI/LOW crossover knob. Essentially do the settings on the processor control the crossover when watching a movie?

    Cheers

    They are independent of each other. When the low level/LFE input is set to bypass, the subs crossover will then only control the high level/speaker input.

    Incidentally this is exactly the same as the XLS-300/PR which is worth a look as it is a direct equivalent to the T-1, only less expensive. Both are good compact subs though.

    Cheers Russell,

    However there is no such control to set the LFE to bypass, there is just the .1LFE input and a single crossover for the internal crossover. Are you certain they are indepentant of each other? Further detail would greatly be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I think Russ is saying if the sub isn't receiving an LFE via the phono input (i.e watching movies in DD or DTS) then it runs only using the high input and vice versa.

    It could be that the input labelled 'LFE' simply has no crossover. I can't believe REL would delete one of their major USPs.

    Without wishing to sound sarcastic, what does the manual say? I've tried downloading it, but the link isn't working for me.

    Managed to get the manual form here.

    From what I understood, you have 2 low-level inputs, one labelled "low level" and another "lfe". The "hi level / Neutrik" and "low level" share a common gain and the single crossover on the sub. The "LFE" input only has a gain knob and is not crossover filtered.

    Hope that helps.
