Subwoofer switch

Hello and Happy New 2020 Year.

I recently bought a Rel T7i.

It works really well and I am very pleased with the product.

Having said that, I am not the kind of person that leaves it on 24/7 and the switch is in the back 6" off the ground. Not comfortable to go to to turn on or off.

Not a big deal but it would be nice to have a switch via the remote control or more accessible than the back, way down.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

I always leave all my equipment on 24/7 except when I'm gone more than a day. It will not hurt anything and is actually better for most equipment. The exception being tube equipment. It's the power surge, the rush of power when a component is first turned on that is hard on things. Ever notice that a light bulb will most always burn out right when you flip the switch on? A lot equipment will go into standby mode after a period of inactivity including subs. I would not worry about it. You can always check the manual see what the manufacturer says about it.
Happy new year to you!
Subwoofers are designed to stay powered ‘ON’ 24/7.  What are your concerns with leaving your sub ON - 24/7? 
In any case, you can use the following on/off switch for easy reach,
My reason is unnecessary power consumption. It has no standby function, not to my knowledge at least.
Leave it on 24/7. If it helps, you can rationalize it by telling yourself the extra power consumption is increasing CO2. Geologically speaking the planet is near the lowest its ever been. The higher the CO2 the faster plants grow and the less water they use. So do your part to save the planet: leave it on.
Thank you for the responses. I can surmise from the design of the sub woofer that it is meant to stay on all the time. 


Hello again.

I thought some of you may be interested in the reply I got from REL.

When the 7Ti subwoofer is not receiving any signal from the amp. In other words, it is "idle". It consumes 7.2 watts.

At 25 cents per KWh it comes to $15 a year to keep it on idle 24/7.
