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.

Heaps better than I first thoght

I wrote a review after owning the REL T/9i after I first had it for about a month and I didn't think it was that good. Our lounge is rectangular (mid to large size) and the stereo TV etc and seats are positioned opposite the ends of the longer walls, but narrower width of the room. At the time I didn't understand just how long some of those deep sound waves are, like up to 16 feet. If you position the sub facing you like your normal speakers and there's not 16 feet distance then your not going to hear the lower sound waves needing this length. So once I found this out I positioned the REL facing to cross the diagonal length of the room, which was well over 16 feet and I could do this without putting the sub right into a corner. Oh My GOODNESS. What a difference. I was gobsmacked at the low frequencies that filled the room, which I didn't even know were there before. And it still works wonderfully at very low volumes, meaning you don't even have to crank up the stereo to get an amazing effect and can enjoy your music at night without waking up the rest of the house. It also made no difference if I had the sub positioned diagonally across the room from the front or the back of the room, each sounded just as good as your ears just heard the base, without knowing where it was coming from, it gives the illusion the base is coming from your main speakers if you've got the sub volume and crossover settings correct. I would highly recommend this sub woofer, it's great with music and movies. I would never be without a REL sub as part of my Hifi system. It's excellent!

T/9i Awesome Subwoofer with great sound and beautiful cabinet

This is the third REL subwoofer that I purchased for my system. They are a great sub for music and theater that has a beautiful cabinet. The subs have great rich sound, are very complementary and enhance the other speakers, fill out the entire room with a warm, full sound. When watching action movies, they add great depth to the sound of the action. Rel has great tools online to help match the Rel subs with your speakers, help with placement and provide subwoofer recommendations for music and theater. Again, a great product with wonderful sound and overall excellent customer experience.

Seamless

Beautiful piece inside and out - who would expect both from a subwoofer? By utilizing the high level input with the supplied cable, the T/9i maintains all the characteristics of the silver cabling to my amp but essentially ignores the amp's incoming wattage. Once the .1 and high levels were tweaked, the REL became sonically invisible while providing a lush, solid and satisfying deep end. But instead of hiding it in a corner - I proudly placed it front and center between the speakers where it can most easily be admired.

Amazing

Sounds awesome and we haven't even tuned it yet.
The first 24 hour burn in was light on the volume and bass demand, but even with that very revealing. We new we had a good sub right away.
Can't wait to see where it takes us once we tune it with the room!

New Listening Experience

Running a single T/9i with a pair of 1990 Nelson-Reed 8-02B floor standing speakers. Really transforms our system. Bass is much more dynamic, tight and defined. Set up videos and FAQs on the website are very good. We are happy we went with the REL.
