The Most T/i Available

The Series Flagship

T/9i represents the most of T/i that we can deliver, and if sheer output alone is a primary requirement for your theater or music system then read no further. The combination of a lightweight, composite 10” driver coupled to a matching 10” T/i passive delivers speed, slam and attack when called upon but also is capable of tracing more delicate passages when necessary. Large in sonic scale, the T/9i is ideal for mating up with floor standing speakers and rooms that are on the medium-to-large size. Powerful, concussive, yet beautiful.

design

Reimagined, Then Reengineered

A completely redesigned flagship

T/9i delivers more than just raw output. We started with our driver upgrades and built outward. The lovely cabinets grew by 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) 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.

driver

Outsized Performance

Innovative Alloy/Fibre Bass Engines

The new composite alloy/fibre engine in T/9i blends precisely the correct dimension of stiffening alloy with a fibre material chosen for its sonic neutrality and light weight. The combination is brilliant; exceeding the performance of competitors’ drivers that are many times more expensive. The forward-firing 10” active couples with a 10” down-firing passive, again with carefully chosen balances of alloy to fibre and the result is seamless, effortlessly deep bass that blends perfectly with the main speakers.

Amazing product

Amazing sound!!! Running a dual T9i setup and combined it’s just like a movie theater. Between the smaller footprint and tight sound it’s a no brainer. I tried doing the Lfe and high level together but it’s just too much for the room with my existing towers. Running LFE alone did the trick.

Excellent sub in its size category. One of the best -- if not THE best.

Requires Careful Placement to Shine

Great addition to my HiFi setup. I was a little skeptical about adding a subwoofer to my HiFi setup because subwoofers often get a bad reputation amongst the audiophile community. I have a fairly modest sub $10k stereo and didn't think I could make it sound a lot better without a seriously pricey speaker and/or amp upgrade. This little guy did the trick though and brought out the low end where my floorstanders couldn't reach.

The only CON I can think of is that the placement is extremely critical. I spent nearly 3 hours moving the speaker inch by inch and toeing in the speakers little by little until I found the perfect placement. Then I spent the rest of the day dialing in the gain and crossover until the subwoofer really disappeared and added to the sound without being "present".

PLACEMENT IS CRITICAL. I was honestly very underwhelmed when I first plugged it in. The owner of REL emailed me though with some placement recommendations though and after LOTS of fine tuning the placement and settings it sounds amazing. I'm in a 15' x 15' room (square, not ideal) and the sweet spot for me was behind my left speaker, 6" from the wall and toed in about 15 degrees towards the listening position. The crossover is set to 15 clicks above zero and the gain is set to 8 clicks above zero. Your mileage may vary. If it doesn't sound good when you first hook it up, be patient and spend some time dialing it in. When it starts sounding good move it only an inch at a time until you find the perfect location and toe in. It's definitely worth it to set a day aside to get this subwoofer setup correctly. Once you find the right spot make sure to mark the floor with tape or use a tape measurer and record where it sits so you don't have to go through the process again if you have to move it for some reason.
