REL T/5i - Compact Higher Performance Subwoofer
Simplify, Then Add Lightness: Simplicity is its own reward and REL T/5i reduces the classic cubic sub to its bare essence. A single, high quality AlloyFibre™ composite driver and down firing orientation produces maximum coupling with the floor and eliminates the need for a grille. T/5i is the purest expression of REL.
REL began by updating their classic 8” bass engine to reduce mass, while greatly increasing stiffness. This improvement led to upgrading cabinet dimensions and wall thickness to better control the deep bass. Additional upgrades extended even into the design of our feet, resulting in greater speed and solidity to the presentation of sound.
The T/5i is a very popular subwoofer because of a balance of incredible performance, discreet design and affordability. An instant and profound improvement to any music or home cinema system.
When REL upgraded their drivers, they were forced to redesign outward. The lovely cabinets grew over its predecessor due to thicker cabinet walls and improved bracing. Why? Because the additional speed and impact of the new drivers requires greater control or the benefits can be lost before they get to the listener.
