REL T5 Subwoofer is a Music Direct Best-Seller
The REL T5 Sub is a Mini, Mighty, Elegant Subwoofer
The REL T5 is The Absolute Sound's 2011 Golden Ear Award Winner
The T5 is a sonic powerhouse, delivering true deep bass from a small, elegant cube. Measuring less than a cubic foot, the T5 goes where no other REL can and performs to the high sonic standards REL has set without compromise. Every aspect of the T5 from the amplifier and crossover to the driver and cabinet are made with true REL performance in mind.
The T5 is able to achieve shockingly deep & tuneful bass from a modestly sized box. Although the T5 does have limits, they are surprisingly high and even in our massive listening area we were quite impressed at how well the little T5 kept up with our large reference speakers. You will be blown away by the improvements this affordable REL sub will add to almost any audio system.
“A special round of applause is owed my current choice for the ideal mini-sub for music lovers. Fast tight, yet tonally replete, with highly defined pitches, the REL T5 is also remarkably extended–stunning so for a single 8” driver in a sealed box. Musical, superbly natural, and robust and durable, as all RELs are, this is a pocket-sized classic!”
On a “Green” Note
"There may be a tendency to set the crossover point too high and the volume of the Sub-Bass System too low when first learning how to integrate a REL with the system, the fear being one of overwhelming the main speakers with bass. But in doing so, the resulting set-up will be lacking in bass depth and dynamics. The proper crossover point and volume setting will increase overall dynamics, allow for extended bass frequencies, and improve soundstage properties. Note: volume must be adjusted in conjunction with crossover changes. In general, when selecting a lower crossover point, more volume may need to be applied."
The High-Level connection is highly preferred as it connects the REL directly to the system’s amplifier, allowing the REL, chameleon-like, to take on the sonic character of the entire system. The very high input impedance (100kΩ) of the High-Level connection ensures that the system’s amplifier doesn’t even see (electrically speaking) the REL, yet this connection enables the REL to very accurately reproduce both the timbre and timing of the system.
The .1/LFE RCA connection is a separate connection designed to be used in tandem with the High-Level connection to provide unparalleled flexibility in a home theater environment. The High-Level connection provides low-frequency reinforcement to the main speakers while the .1/LFE connection provides reproduction of the exclamation point bass the LFE channel is intended for. Simply connect an RCA cable from the LFE output on the surround processor to the .1/LFE input on the REL. This input has its own volume control, but all crossover adjustments for this input are done at the surround processor.
If for some reason the High-Level connection cannot be used, (e.g. a system with powered speakers) then the Low-Level input should be used, allowing the T-Series to be connected via an RCA cable. This is a mono input, so if stereo output is available from the preamp or processor, a y-adaptor should be used to combine the signals. The Low-Level input shares the crossover and volume control of the High-Level input. The Low-Level input is not the preferred connection, only use if High-Level connection is simply not possible.
