REL T-9 subwoofer. I am selling the REL to reduce my collection of components and due to little use. I am the second owner. The REL has clocked perhaps 50 hours in my house and then stored in an indoor closet for the last two years. The subwoofer performed well, however, I was content with the bass performance of the floorstanders I acquired after the REL and also freed up some floor space in a relatively small listening room. As noted by REL and several reviews, the T-9 integrated well with my speakers using the Neutrik Speakon connectors.
This REL is in very good functional and cosmetic condition with one small mar (1/8” X 1/32”) on the right upper edge of the speaker and two “swirl” marks along the right side. I did not apply wax to the finish as recommended by REL to discover whether these “swirl” marks could be removed. If using paypal, I’ll absorb the fees. Shipping is with your choice of shippers at your cost.

From https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/speaker/subwoofers/rel-t-9-subwoofer/ The REL T-9 subwoofer is the largest sub in REL’s “Serie T” line. It is a solidly built sub with a 10″ Ultra Long Throw main driver, a 10″ front-firing passive radiator and a 300 watt Class A/B plate amp. In keeping with REL innovation (and tradition), theT-9 has a number of flexible hook up schemes, the most unique being by way of the included high level hook-up cable.
This sub is a REL through and through. That means you get great build quality. But you also get REL’s incredible focus on the important details. REL just builds subwoofers and they do it excellently. As a result, the T-9 is replete with new advancements and trickle down technologies from REL’s Gibraltar and Serie R lines.
Built-in amplification for the T-9 is by way of a high current 300W Class A/B amp with remote-mounted toroidal transformer. This amp is cooled via an oversized heat sink bank. Three connection options are available: unbalanced low level, unbalanced .1 LFE and a balanced high level input via an included high level cable with a Neutrik Speakon connector that snaps into the back of the amp. There are separate volume controls for the low and high level inputs. The non-defeatable second-order variable low-pass filter utilizes Butterworth filtering and is set via an analog dial with a range from 30 – 120 Hz. REL makes the following claim regarding the T-9 – “REL’s latest input filter design is borrowed from its more expensive sibling (Serie R) and is considerably quicker than previous REL designs. This speed is partly responsible for the slam and attack for which Serie T is known.” The REL T-9 cabinet is solidly braced and features a high gloss finish with five layers of carefully applied lacquer. The T-9s are available in either black or white finishes. One last point – the sub comes with milled aluminum feet and no spikes. It is plug and play ready.
