REL T/5x Subwoofers

The T/5 is a legend at REL, responsible for more sales and happy customers than any other model in the company’s long history. The REL T/5x has big shoes to fill: magically pulling real bass out of a small package like a rabbit from a hat has been the model 5’s specialty. Designed to fit seamlessly into elegant, modern decor, the T/5x’s new curves and subtle lines make it even more unobtrusive and discreet despite a small bump in size. All in all, a design triumph.

Who is the REL T/5X For?

The REL T/5x is deceptively powerful for its size, and uses the same updated 8” driver as the larger T/7x. Under a desk or in a smaller listening room its down-firing angle will allow the bass to “couple” to one of the largest boundaries in the room -- the floor -- a boundary which will help launch the largest waves in the audio spectrum. 
The REL T/5x can be stunningly good in the nearfield, making it our choice for an ideal pairing to desktop speakers. All REL subwoofers carry the trait of making speakers sound larger and better once integrated together, and the 5x may exemplify this the best of all.
As the listening room size increases beyond 150 square feet or so, the need for two subwoofers or a step up to a larger sibling of the model 5 may be in order, but the 5x has enough power on tap to support modest listening levels in almost any situation. The benefits of the redesigned driver suspension really come into play here, increasing the flexibility of application for the mighty REL T/5x.

A Subwoofer Designed for Elegance

STUNNINGLY SIMPLE

Perfect for small and medium rooms, T/5x seats perfectly into any décor. Floor-firing is part of its secret; bass energy strikes the floor and spreads uniformly throughout the space making it perform like a larger model. For those picky about style, the hidden bonus is this design eliminates even the grill, rendering it the purest of forms.

Slightly larger in volume than its predecessor, it actually appears to be smaller due subtle design changes to minimize it’s visual presence. Finally, 5 hand polished coats of lacquer in your choice of High Gloss White or Piano Black add luster to the softly rounded cabinetry.

A 360-DEGREE UPGRADE

Many don’t realize the intense linkage between performance and design here at REL. Performance is everything to us and so it drives physical design revisions. Our engineers, recognizing the need for greater acoustic volume to achieve the goals of greater fluidity and power, turn to the designer who works dimensions to fool the eye into seeing a smaller, more compact footprint even though cabinet volume increases. Using gently rounded corner radii that allows the eye to flow over and see less visual mass. The result is both modern and familiar with no unnecessary adornment.

Faster & Deeper

SWIFT

The REL T/5x borrows a single longthrow 8” (200mm) bass engine from its elder sibling, T/7x. Developed using a composite of aluminum and light paper, this cone captures details that will amaze, while supplying sufficient energy to plumb deeper than one would expect for its size. In T/5x, its throw–the ability to play louder–has been increased. Internally, the suspension received numerous upgrades akin to transforming the handling of a car from a family sedan to a true sports car. More power, greater finesse.

Amplified Power

REL'S RELIABLE BRAINS AND BRAWN

T/5x builds on its predecessor’s reliable, expensive 125 W Class A/B amplifiers. Internally, key items significant to upgrading transparency and speed have been upgraded at no cost to REL’s legendary reliability. Separate inputs for High Level Inputs, Low Level Input (necessary for the increasing number of powered active speakers emerging on the market) allow for a natural, perfect transition from speaker to subwoofer. And in theater a separate, dedicated .1/LFE Input for Theatre performance permits automatic transition between music in high end 2-channel applications and home theater without needing to change a single setting. Magic? No, superior engineering.

Standby Mode switch is only included on 220V units.

Zero Compression Wireless

UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES

At REL, we’ve developed a sterling reputation for building the finest sounding, fastest wireless systems available in the industry. REL never rely upon digital compression as it results in thin, lifeless sound. Instead, we have perfected an (optional) Arrow™ Wireless system; so fast and dynamic we’re comfortable encouraging the use of wireless on one channel of a pair of RELs while the other channel may be connected hardwired with cable.
