Rel Acoustics: a reference since 2006

Since its inception in 1990, Welsh subwoofer manufacturer Rel Acoustics has forged a solid reputation by developing and refining its different subwoofer ranges generation after generation to improve their performance.

As the successors to the Rel Acoustics T/i series subwoofers, the models in the Rel Acoustics T/x range not only aim to outperform their predecessors, but also to come as close as possible to the performance of the brand’s higher-end subwoofers (the famous S series) while maintaining a reasonable budget.

The first T series subwoofers were introduced in 2006, sporting a very retro fifties look combining wood and steel. In 2010, the T series developed a more classic design with black and white piano lacquer finishes. The T/i series that followed had the same finish with mostly technological changes, notably the use of more rigid membranes thanks to a central aluminum cone and the transition from a sealed enclosure to a passive design for the Rel Acoustics T/7i and Rel Acoustics T/9i models. The smallest of the three, the Rel Acoustics T/5i, kept a sealed enclosure.

The new Rel Acoustics T/x subwoofer range is the latest addition to the manufacturer’s range and is distinguished by a greater load volume for each model, which is reflected visually in the new, softer silhouettes with rounded edges. The driver cones and surrounds along with the amplification have been redesigned to take full advantage of the additional load volume without distortion. The manufacturer therefore manages to offer higher output levels with more impact in the low frequencies while improving the responsiveness and precision of the bass.

Flagship of the T/x range, the Rel Acoustics T/9x subwoofer is as beautiful as it is musical and punchy! It has a 10″ front-firing driver powered by an amplification of 300 watts and supported by a down-firing passive radiator of the same diameter.

Rel Acoustics T/x: wireless subwoofers

Just like the Rel Acoustics T/5i, Rel Acoustics T/7i and Rel Acoustics T/9i subwoofers, the Rel Acoustics T/5x, Rel Acoustics T/7x and Rel Acoustics T/9x are compatible with the Rel Acoustics Arrow wireless audio transmitter. The latter is designed so they can be connected to an A/V receiver without using any cables, taking advantage of a transmission technology without latency or compression and, therefore, without loss.

Après plusieurs années passées dans la vente de produits high-tech d'occasion avant de rejoindre l'équipe de Son-Vidéo.com en 2007, je ne compte plus les amplis, enceintes, casques, TV, vidéoprojecteurs et autres baladeurs qui sont passés entre mes mains... Je suis toujours curieux de découvrir de nouveaux produits et de partager cette passion pour la hi-fi et le home-cinéma.
