The big question is if you have £600 to spend, is it better to spend it on two small subs, one big sub, or better loudspeakers? It’s not an easy question and it largely depends on your current loudspeaker system and listening space. If you have two small, but decent standmounts in a small room, the move to a bigger loudspeaker may not prove successful and the big sub might not prove appropriate. In such cases, the T-Zero option is a great one. Bigger rooms in bigger speakers are more likely to go with the big sub option. And if you are starting completely afresh, then putting that £600 to a better speaker is the right answer.
But there’s another concept. Take someone with a good starter system with a pair of standmounts, and a single REL T-Zero will transform its sound. Then another one can do the same at a later date. This is a step-by-step way of achieving proper bass management without the need for expensive and possibly mis-managed upgrades. And under such circumstances, the improvements are significant and profound. Highly recommended.
