REL Acoustics T/9x Subwoofer
RELs are designed for speed and articulation, as well as bass response. The T/x series offers faster, more transparent sound with even greater impact
The T/9x is the flagship of REL's Serie T, and the goal was not just to make a better T/9i, but to deliver as much as possible of Serie S on a budget. The all-new 9x has even greater output than before, but sacrifices nothing in clarity and transparency to achieve this. At this price it opens the pathway for owners of high-performance European floor and stand-mounted monitors and smaller panel speakers to enjoy truly full-range sound.
The T/9x uses a long-throw 10” active driver driven by a 300 W class A/B amp, and a 10" passive. It is louder and more powerful than the previous generation, but is also faster and more tuneful. The suspension has received many upgrades allowing for more power and greater finesse.
Finally, five hand-polished coats of lacquer in your choice of High Gloss White or Piano Black add luster to the softly rounded cabinetry.
1) REL subs are designed to be fast and articulate above all. This allows them to keep up with modern loudspeakers and blend better with them. REL subs offer realistic bass extension... there's no point in adding a boom box for bass in a good system. Real-life bass is quick and dynamic, it takes your breath away. RELs offer deep but fast bass, textured and organic, just as it is on the recording.
2) RELs use a high-level input, also called a speaker-level input. This means that they connect to the speaker output terminals on your amp, and share the same signal and are subject to the same damping factor and timing as your loudspeakers. Don't worry, they don't add to the load on the amp--they just see the signal.
3) Many REL setups are scaleable and they offer a separate input and gain setting for LFE/.1, so it's easy to share your music sub with your cinema system.
The result is a subwoofer or pair of subwoofers that seamlessly takes your loudspeaker bass performance down to extremely low frequencies, but keeps all of the speed, detail, and dynamics of the signal. When done right, it's not just about bass performance--soundstaging improves, there's more weight to all frequencies, and there's a tremendous sense of the recording space.
Remember, the subwoofer must match your speakers and the room. Contact us if you'd like advice on speaker pairing with this sub.
