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.
"REL's T/9i is an excellent subwoofer for the audiophile. It's capable of making big bass noises, but is also more than capable of freeing up the loudspeakers and liberating them from the dictatorship of the room. While there is no substitute for huge bass traps and other room treatments, a pair of T/9i get you most of the way there without the domestic angst room treatment can cause. Highly recommended."

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.
