Now better than ever, the REL T5i is still the ultimate compact subwoofer.

A high quality design refined

The REL T5i builds on the original by offering an upgraded, lighter woofer cone, giving an even faster response. The cabinet uses thicker walls for reduced distortion and even the feet have been enhanced - all in an effort to improve the solidity and speed of response.

High current 125 watt amplifier for vice-like grip
Keeping the revised bass cone under tight control is REL's tried and tested 125 watt Class A/B amplifier. Unlike other active subwoofers that use digital amplifiers, REL have stuck to the more traditional Class A/B transistor design. Although more expensive to produce, the upside is class-leading attack and control. Unlike lesser subs, the bass starts and stops exactly when it should with superb agility and no 'overhang' to its response.

Reliable performer
Thanks to a large heatsink on the rear of the sub, the T5i is kept cool, giving many years of reliable performance. Used in over 100, 000 units to date, these REL amplifiers have an excellent track record for reliability.

Separate levels pre-set for your hi-fi and home cinema
If you use your subwoofer for both home cinema and hi-fi, the REL T5i is ideal. Traditionally, the problem with using a sub with both home cinema and music systems is the difference in presence required. Whereas films often require the sub to be turned up for the greatest thrills, music demands a more subtle approach. With the REL T5i you have separate level controls for stereo and LFE .1 surround. This means you get the ideal levels for both hi-fi and AV, without the need to constantly change the settings.

High quality finish
With REL's legendary build quality and finish, the T5i has to be one of the most attractive-looking subwoofers in its class. Featuring a deep, piano gloss finish and logoed aluminium feet, this is one subwoofer you'll be proud to have on show.

Highly compact yet hugely capable, the REL T5i is still the room-friendly sub of choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sub! All the shop assistants seemed to have one of these, so I was easily convinced. I came into the store without any knowledge of subs. It had to be big enough, but also hidden from the wife. It could be years before she ever finds out! Bass sound is nicely extended and sounds superb in my fairly large lounge. The construction feels solid and controls are good. I can't be sure if it is my imagination or not, but after 2 weeks of listening it seemed to get better and I had to turn it down a notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for movies I have the T5i linked by phono lead too my Denon AVR-X2400 with Monitor Audio silver 6 speakers and center speaker with a Sony 4k blu-ray and 58 inch Panasonic HDR TV for a 3.1 set up. In due course I'll get the rears... Anyhow, the performance is outstanding, my room is quite large and the bass response easily fills the space. The extra dimension over just the speakers (which themselves are excellent) is considerable and plays a big part in making the whole system so arresting. Basically this Rel sub is outstanding, in my view no home cinema would be complete without one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is all in the set up First of all the service at Richer Sounds Manchester was superb - very helpful and patient with my questions. Secondly, for the right room and speakers I am sure that this is a superb bit of kit. For me though despite around 20 hours on my hands and knees trying to find the optimal position of the subwoofer, changing settings and moving furniture I just could not get a balanced sound and smooth integration with my speakers. It seemed to me that the bass response was too track dependent - sometimes it would be too much and then not enough. It probably demonstrates my lack of skill in integrating a subwoofer but I have decided it is not for me and sadly eBay beckons...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a classy piece of kit if you check on-line there are great reviews on the REL T5i you will not be disappointed! This unit is fantastic because it provides separate inputs for LFE which will privide you with floor shaking effects when watching Blu-ray films with DTS. Also is works really as well and has as great solid bass for stereo playback such as music soundtracks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bit of kit I have had my Arcam Solo and Arcam Power amp for a while, and run them currently through quite small B and W 686 speakers. I wanted some smile inducing bass. The unit was easy to set up using the high level inputs wired into the same terminals as the speakers. The wiring set up worked with the first variation in the manual. The instructions are good in terms of positioning and adjustment to achieve the best tuning for the frequencies and the room the unit is sitting in. It works very well near a corner as advised. It takes a bit of tweaking of the volume and cross over levels on the easily accessible controls on the back of the REL. I am sometimes needing to adjust these depending on the music but I suspect this will improve as the unit beds in. The sound is epic and I have spent many hours in the evening listening to music I know well and getting that grin factor back! The bass is tight and starting to go very low, but in a beautiful controlled way and with plenty of punch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sub This sub cost twice what I intended to pay, however I'm pleased that I made the investment. The shiny black finish oozes quality. The sound quality is excellent and the low frequencies are controlled well, even though my home cinema room is not ideal. A real unexpected bonus to me was the ability to connect high level speaker connections to the sub, as well as the low level LFE input. There are separate level controls for the high level and LFE inputs, plus crossover frequency adjustment for the high level to allow a smooth transition from the main speakers. This has provided a fuller and natural soundstage for music. The LFE channel provides the necessary low frequency rumbles required. The only minor complaint is that there is a very bright blue power led at the rear which lights a darkened home cinema, casting shadows across the screen. Black sticky tape sorted this.
