Smaller does not mean lesser. We designed the compact T/5i to give smaller sized spaces and systems equal quality sound, so while scale may change the performance stays the same.Find a Dealer

A 360-degree Upgrade
When we upgraded our drivers, we were forced to redesign outward. The lovely cabinets grew 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.
Faster & Deeper
We began by updating our classic 8” bass engine to reduce mass, while greatly increasing stiffness. This improvement led to upgrading cabinet dimensions and wall thickness to better control the deep bass. Additional upgrades extended even into the design of our feet, resulting in greater speed and solidity to the presentation of sound.

Accurate bass without bass boom. I own a pair of Altec Valencia's that lack bottom end. This is the bass sound I was looking for.
Purchased a pair of REL T/5i subs. They perform perfectly...They're REl's. What a difference they make!
Use for a small office -- perfect with my Yamaha 2100 series system! Just the right amount of base when using amp out.
I rarely give 5 stars but almost did with this sub. Its an incredibly sounding sub for a music system. Don't think of this for home theater but to add to a 2 channel system will rock your world. These are a perfect match for Magnepan Speakers which I use the T5i with my LRS speakers. Match made in heaven!
After trying a few other (lower priced) subwoofers, I brought this REL home and found the perfect match in my listening space with Triangle Titus. The 5i is just what the Triangles need. Together, this is a set that sounds, to me, as the most live-like reproduction possible in this price range. The crossover on the REL needed to be set higher than the suggested starting point, but that's one of the beauties of the REL -- it's flexibility. An added bonus is the high-end finish on the REL (white) is a perfect match to the white gloss on the Triangles.

“REL’s T/9i is an excellent subwoofer for the audiophile. It’s capable of making big bass noises, but is also more than capable of freeing up the loudspeakers and liberating them from the dictatorship of the room. While there is no substitute for huge bass traps and other room treatments, a pair of T/9i get you most of the way there without the domestic angst room treatment can cause. Highly recommended” Read More +

"As REL woofer-in-chief John Hunter described to me, the new T lineup benefitted from the development of the Series S line. The Series S reminded him not only of the importance of both a lighter/stiffer driver but of the issue of self-quieting, which Hunter describes as design and engineering 'intended to produce a cone/driver that starts and stops well and immediately quiets down and does not continue ringing.' Basically, no overshoot." Read More +
