The REL website suggested the Ti7 x 2 but I'm worried about dropping from a 12 inch to 8 inch speaker. Will I lose the bottom end of my Home Theater? Will the eights be able to pressurize the room. Like the finish in white


TIA
Start with a T9i & you can always add another one later if you find the need too.


Cheers..

I would get it directly from the rel official website because of the no risk in home trial offer.

REL T1 owner here just checking in....it may be entry-level REL stuff but daaaaang call it the little sub that could!


I'm fascinated with the hookups and can't believe how accurate the high level hookup is with so much xmax. Best part? I picked it up for $140 from a guy who found it for $15 at a thrift shop

I haven't tried it but can you try it with your sub or at least demo at a shop?

What are you trying to achieve with the change? It would unusual for a Company to provide a cable that would degrade their own equipment ...

I have the T7i and T9i for in-home demo right now. My dealer gave me a bunch of different cables to try out for myself. I’m not a cable tweaker so I didn’t expect much, but I will be buying the REL Bassline cable regardless of which REL I use. It was definitely better for me than the cable that comes with the subs. The bass was tighter and more defined to my ears, with more weight to it as well. It’s expensive, but I couldn’t unhear it. REL markets it for their higher-end subs, but it sounded great when I tried it with the T9i.

After hearing the Bassline I read about another brand called Signal Cable that makes cables to improve the REL high level connection performance as well. Their website shows them being a lot less expensive than the REL cable.

Also, if you’re looking for a line level cable, I found the Audioquest Boxer cable to sound great with the REL subs in my setup.
