Slam, Power, Speed, and Depth Plus Nuance and Delicacy: REL T/9i Subwoofer Features Upgraded Alloy and Fiber Drivers, Enhanced Bracing, Thicker Cabinet Walls, and Improved Bass Engine
REL has a longstanding tradition of requiring the top model in any of its product ranges to offer more than anyone expects, and the incredible-sounding T/9i subwoofer meets such demands. More than the sum of its parts, it represents the grandest scale and highest output within any given technology envelope. If sheer output alone is a primary requirement for your theater or music system, then read no further. The combination of a lightweight, composite 10" driver coupled to a matching 10" passive delivers speed, slam, and attack when called upon. But this do-it-all sub also remains capable of tracing more delicate passages when necessary. Large in sonic scale, T/9i is ideal for mating up with floor-standing speakers and medium-to-large rooms.
A Completely Redesigned Flagship: T/9i Fits the Bill
T/9i delivers more than just raw output. It started with driver upgrades and built outward. Due to thicker cabinet walls and improved bracing, the lovely cabinets grew by more than four pounds over its predecessor. Why? Because the additional speed and impact of the new drivers require greater control or the benefits can be lost before they reach the listener.
Great Subs Stem from Great Amps: The Brains Behind the Brawn
REL's acclaimed input filters and robust amplifiers result in some of the best sounding, most reliable designs ever produced. High-current power supplies, huge toroidal transformers, and what many critics call the best filters in the world produce the famous REL effect – wherein not simply the bass region but all music and movie sound becomes uplifted and improved.
