If connecting a pair of REL's via high level to the MC2301's, the BLACK wire should be left disconnected from a negative speaker terminal. You would connect the RED and YELLOW wires of each sub to the 8 ohm positive tap on each amp for best output.
Please let us know if there is anything else at all that we can assist with, and thank you again for considering our products."


Thanks. Per REL, if there is hum, you can connect the black wire to the bolt/screw in the chassis of each of the monoblocks.

The REL comes with standard High Level Cable. Did anyone upgrade this standard High Level cable, and if so, is it worth it? The high level cable I am considering is the Analysis Plus cable ($149 for each 3 meter-cable). Any thought on this cable, or more expensive high level cable such as Bassline Blue?

Thanks!

I upgraded with a used pair of bassline blue to good effect. Not sure if it was worth retail, but fine for used pricing.

I'm running the line array of 812s (6), using the bassline Blue upgraded cords...I connect them off the speaker terminal itself and it works great...then daisy chain the array. I am still fiddling with tuning, but the effect is incredible so far. Can not leave them turned off any more!!

Just got the email that the 2 Carbon special subs I ordered last week are shipped :banana: On REL website the Carbon Special is "Out of Stock", so very happy to have these ordered while in stock! It will be a busy Xmas setting these up :banana::music:

btw, I got the email from REL today that price increase on existing products will be effective on Jan 15th 2022.
