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.

My reason is unnecessary power consumption. It has no standby function, not to my knowledge at least.
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. 


@imhififan looks interesting. Thank you.
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.
