The high level input* is designed to accept the stereo (two channel) signals from the speaker
terminals of your receiver, integrated amplifier, or power amplifiers. This has the advantage
of ensuring that your sub-bass system receives exactly the same signal as the main
speakers, and ensures that the character of the bass from the main system is carried forward
into the sub-bass. This is a very important factor in the successful integration of your sub-
bass with the main system and works with the REL’s ABC circuitry to ensure a superior result.
*This input is labeled “Hi LEVEL”. This is the recommended means of connecting the
sub for two-channel use.
