Modulating scale, while never compromising quality, T/7i provides the speed and punch of the T/9i, scaled to integrate seamlessly with more modest yet still highly sophisticated systems.
Reimagined, Then Reengineered
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.
The new composite alloy/fibre engine in T/7i 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 8” active couples with a larger 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.
Brains and Brawn
The Power Behind REL
If our driver designers deliver the structure of REL’s sound, the electronics are the brains and the power behind our success. Serie T/i uses the same Class A/B power amplifier sections with large, high current power supplies, precision-wound toroidal transformers and an amazing reliability record that has powered almost 100,000 RELs. Our proprietary filter designs are responsible for rave reviews for REL’s unique ability to blend seamlessly while layering on all the harmonic structure missing from conventional systems.
Zero Compression Wireless
Arrow™ is REL’s latest generation of zero compression wireless. Super-fast delivery of both High Level Bass and .1/ LFE ensures the rich, natural warmth that only RELs can deliver. With a throw distance of some 45’(13.7M) Arrow permits flexible placement without sacrificing sound quality.

"Even without the high-level connection in use (wilfully ignoring REL's manual that declares 'you will almost always' hookup this way), this is a seriously accomplished device. And even if you choose, as an LFE purist, not to run a simultaneous input for movie playback, you should certainly experiment with the high-level connection for conventional two-channel audio. I found it improved the sub's integration with my L/R speakers and sense of speed." Read More +
Ed Selley, Home Cinema Choice
"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 +
