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.
The T7i is, without reservation, one of the most balanced REL's of all time. In order to achieve perfect balance, a sub must weigh speed against heft, while ensuring true extension-depth-and do so in a physically harmonious package. T/7i manages to make it all seem easy. Quick and delicate for a perfect blend, it can pound out exceptionally deep, tuneful bass that belies its size and plays louder than most will ever require.

When REL upgraded their drivers, they 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 require greater control or the benefits can be lost before they get to the listener.
The new composite alloy/fibre engine in the T7i precisely blends the correct dimension of a stiff alloy with a fibre material chosen for its sonic neutrality and low weight. The combination is brilliant; exceeding the performance of other drivers that are many times more expensive. The forward-firing 8" active driver couples with a larger 10" down-firing passive driver, again with carefully chosen balances of alloy to fibre and the result is seamless, effortlessly deep bass that blends perfectly with other speakers.
While driver designs deliver the structure of RELs sound, the electronics are the brains and the power behind their success. Serie T/i subwoofers use 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. And 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.
