An Affordable Taste of the High-End!

We expect great performance from any product wearing a REL badge, but we were floored when we got this inexpensive little sub to integrate perfectly with our $13k reference tower speakers! The T-7 dramatically improved bass weight and depth, but surprisingly also increased perceived depth and width of the soundstage. Midrange and high-frequency response were richer, more palpable and finely textured as well. The T-7 effortlessly increased the enormous dynamic range of these large floor standing speakers in our extremely large listening room. This is obviously not the intended use for a T-7, but it is a testament to REL engineering and quality that this reasonably priced sub could effect such an improvement on speakers that should be clearly out of its league.

The T-7’s 10” passive and 8" ULT active driver with 200W Class A/B amplifier allow it to dig deeper into any recording, offering a rock solid foundation to any recording. The REL T-7 offers a larger and deeper view of the soundstage than the T-5, with greater weight and power, its performance suggestive of the bigger, more expansive sound of the T-9. REL Sub-Bass systems are the benchmark by which all other low-frequency speakers are measured. Rel's Series represents the first time REL quality and performance has been available in a series all under a thousand dollars. Built to the same refinement and sonic expectation as all REL products, the T-Series is a serious endeavor by REL to make quality bass affordable for everyone. All three T-Series Sub-Bass systems are excellent values with outstanding performance and build quality that far outstrips both their reasonable price tag and small size.

REL takes their woofer engineering very seriously; the Bass Engine is the heart of REL sound quality and performance. The Ultra Long Throw (ULT) Bass Engine driver used in the T-Series went through 11 generations of prototyping before finally being approved as offering performance worthy of a REL. The T-Series actually makes use of two drivers; an active downward-firing ULT and a passive forward-firing ULT. This is in direct contravention to traditional approaches to incorporating a passive driver into a low-frequency system; however, longtime REL aficionados will recognize this approach as being quintessential REL. By firing the active woofer downwards, the T-Series achieves greater depth and precision while the forward firing passive design offers outstanding punch. This unusual arrangement gives the T-Series superior sound quality and surprisingly high dynamic output.

On a “green” note, T-Series amplifiers have a unique power saving feature called “powerstarvation”. Whenever there’s no signal present, the amplifier goes instantly to maximum power saving efficiency, consuming a mere 4W of power (less than an LCD TV in standby), yet the amplifier remains at maximum readiness to immediately respond to a sudden transient signal, even after a long quiet period and regardless of level. This innovative feature eliminates the need to switch off a T-Series woofer when not in use.
