REL-acoustics-T1.jpgThe REL Acoustics T1 ($998), imported to the United States from England by Sumiko, is a strong performer in the small subwoofer category. Comparable in size to the Sunfire True Subwoofer EQ Signature, which is 13 inches square, the REL (15.75 x 14 x 16.5 inches) sits neatly on top of a framework that give it room to breathe, as well as a break from the look of almost all any other subwoofer, which is nothing more than a black box sitting in the corner of your living room. This woofer has a uniquely refreshing look to it.

Much like the far more expensive Revel line of subwoofers, the REL T1 comes with a 300-watt internal class AB amplifier, as opposed to using a less weighty class-D digital amplifier, which allows for more impressive power specifications on the literature and company website. Those in the know can hear and easily appreciate the difference with the class AB amp. While priced at the entry level of the REL line, the T1 has a 10-inch driver and comes in black, white and cherry wood finishes.
