Serie T/9x: Bigger AND Better
THE SERIES FLAGSHIP
The role of a top-of-tier subwoofer at REL is to lead the T series in all sonic categories, especially in both dynamics and power. The REL T/9x fills this role admirably, as it never ceases to impress on musical material and cinematic alike. But it’s the linearity, the delicacy and the quickness of the T/9x system as a whole which sees nothing lost sonically from the smaller models in the REL T series, while offering gains in the form of power and scale befitting of the T/9x.
The REL T/9x now has more power on tap than ever before, but the breaking news is that it does not come at the expense of honesty and transparency. More power allows for integration with more and more types of loudspeakers on the market, like some less-sensitive high performance floorstanding or stand-mount speakers or panel-based speakers in the creation of a true full-range system.
T Series Subwoofers Reimagined, Then Reengineered
A COMPLETELY REDESIGNED FLAGSHIP
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. The REL T/9x uses rounded corner radii that allows the eye to flow over and see less visual mass. The result is a subwoofer that is both modern and familiar with no unnecessary adornment.
Outsized Subwoofer Performance
INNOVATIVE ALLOY/FIBRE BASS ENGINES
To achieve higher output with better control requires a complete overhaul of the subwoofer suspension components. Much like the suspension on a sports car, these items are responsible for the tuning and feel of our designs. By increasing the cabinet volume, efficiency is improved yielding higher output for no more amplifier power. Less back pressure inside the cabinet means we can tune for a stiffer, better controlled driver suspension. We retained the best aspects of our previous design, such as the aluminum center cap responsible for stiffening the lightweight 10” (250mm) cone while adding almost no mass. The updated combination produces considerably better attack and dynamics with greater transparency.
Tried and True Amplifiers
THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BRAWN
We have retained our signature Class A/B amplifiers used in every generation of Serie T since 2006. Reliability is the key to happy ownership and with some 200,000 and counting of this range leading long happy lives, Serie T/x owners can feel certain of REL’s standard setting reliability. The powerful 300 watt mosfet amplifier used in the REL T/9x subwoofer remains an icon with huge reserves of current, massive power supplies but small upgrades are found everywhere. New driver mosfets that open up performance and transparency and new methods for securing the toroidal transformers mean better performance and superior strength.
REL’s legendary High Level Input connection and fast filters are a significant part of the REL story. Connecting via the speaker outputs of your amplifier without drawing any power from it may seem like magic, but the real magic lies in the way the sound takes on a natural character. Unique tuning and special limiters means the T/x range sounds fresher, faster and more dynamic than before.
Standby Mode switch is only included on 220V units.
Wireless That Doesn’t Compress the Sound
At REL, we’ve developed a sterling reputation for building the finest sounding, fastest wireless systems available in the industry. We never rely upon digital compression as it results in dull, 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 conventionally with cable.
