REL Acoustics brings X factor to active sub-bass series

Following REL’s teaser campaign counting down to the launch of a new Serie T range of sub-bass systems, HF&MS is proud to be among the first to get a look at one the new models from the new T/x series.

Serie T reimagined

The Serie T active sub-bass system series welcomes the T/9x priced at £1,299, T/7x (main image) at £999 and T/5x at £649. The three-strong T/x series introduces a new cabinet structure formed with rounded edges for a softer look and greater internal volume for bigger and better sub-bass delivery, says the specialist company.

In terms of specs, the top-of-the-range T/9x employs a 254mm fibre-alloy long-throw front-firing driver partnered to 254mm downward-firing passive radiator and claims 300W Class A/B power output, while the T/7x offers a 200mm long-throw forward driver partnered to a 254mm down-firing passive radiator and claims to deliver up to 200W. The compact T/5x uses a single 200mm forward-firing long-throw driver and is rated at 125W power output. All active drivers are made from fibre-alloy, have an inverted alloy dust cap and are housed in a steel chassis. Low frequency extension is said to achieve 27, 31 and 32Hz (+/-6dB) for each model respectively.

As with the Serie T/i line, the T/x carries all the quality hallmarks associated with REL, including multi-layered black or white high-gloss finishes and introduces a new flush-mounted logo embedded in the top surface of the cabinet and bigger feet for greater surface area contact with the floor – the height and shape of the feet are said to be carefully considered for each model to achieve optimum airflow of the sound waves produced by the downward-firing drivers.

Inputs and integration controls for each model include high-level Neutrik Speakon, low-level RCAs and LFE RCAs plus level and crossover controls and a phase switch. A 10m Neutrik Speakon interconnect cable is supplied for wired connectivity but REL’s wireless Arrow system can be added separately priced at £199.
