REL have a longstanding tradition of requiring the top model in any range to be more. More than the sum of its parts, it represents the grandest scale, the highest output and the most That can be done within any given technology envelope.
A high quality design refined
The REL T9i builds on the original by offering an upgraded, lighter woofer cone, giving an even faster response. The cabinet is larger than before and has thicker walls - making it sound tighter and more cohesive.
Combines active and passive cones for seismic bass
Within its cabinet, the REL T9i uses a forward-firing, active 10" bass cone paired with a downward-firing, passive 10" cone. In combination, these cones offer a surface area equivalent to a 15" bass cone. What this means for the sound is deep, effortlessly powerful bass that's loud enough to get you into trouble with your neighbours!
Huge 300 watt amplifier for total control
Keeping the revised bass cone under tight control is REL's tried and tested 300 watt Class A/B amplifier. Unlike other active subwoofers that use digital amplifiers, REL have stuck to the more traditional Class A/B transistor design. Although more expensive to produce, the upside is class-leading attack and control. Unlike lesser subs, the bass starts and stops exactly when it should with superb agility and no 'overhang' to its response.
Thanks to a large heatsink on the rear of the sub, the T9i is kept cool, giving many years of reliable performance. Used in over 100,000 units to date, these REL amplifiers have an excellent track record for reliability.
Separate levels pre-set for your hi-fi and home cinema
If you use your subwoofer for both home cinema and hi-fi, the REL T9i is ideal. Traditionally, the problem with using a sub with both home cinema and music systems is the difference in presence required. Whereas films often require the sub to be turned up for the greatest thrills, music demands a more subtle approach. With the REL T9i you have separate level controls for stereo and LFE .1 surround. This means you get the ideal levels for both hi-fi and AV, without the need to constantly change the settings.
High quality finish
With REL's legendary build quality and finish, the T9i has to be one of the most attractive-looking subwoofers in its class. Featuring a deep, piano gloss finish and logoed aluminium feet, this is one subwoofer you'll be proud to have on show.
For deep, effortless bass with musicianship to match, the REL T9i strikes the perfect balance.
