    Do I need adding a subwoofer (or two)?

    Haha lucky (?) that my listening room is small so I don't need one as expensive as S3 lol. I'm considering to buy secondhand now if I'm going to buy one. Is it better to buy a new version like T9i? Locally a guy is selling his Rel Britannia B2 for $1100 which is about 8 years old (guess the price is negotiable). It's 300 watt too but the bass can be extended as low as 16Hz compared to T9i's 28Hz (both at 6db). However the T9i does have fiber alloy driver compared to the paperconed driver of B2. I think in this regard T9i should be faster? Any ideas which one to go? Thanks

    yeah haha I have just joined the forum for two months and did learn a lot since then (though still in the left far end of the learning curve lol). I agree with you that it's all about the interaction of the room, system and listener. And that's the fun of it! Mate you are like a hi-fi/audio philosopher haha

    Hi just say thank you again and I'll spend the whole day eschewing your suggestions which seems kinda complex for a newbie like me lol

    Hi thank for your comprehensive and insightful advice mate! Yeah doing extensive research before bluntly jumping to any conclusions. Thanks mate! A local stereo member has kindly enough to lend me his subwoofer and let me see how it performs in my system. Just to confirm: in your opinion, if I decide to add a subwoofer, I had better buy and use an external crossovers/DSP right?

    The cross over setting on the sub is for the sub only, how are you going to implement the cross over on the speaker? Thank you for your Scoratic questioning. Let me rephrase here and see if I understand you right. Unlike a subwoofer connected to preamp in which situation frequencies below sent to subwoofer and above speakers, there is a range of overlapping frequencies between speakers and subwoofer in high level input connection: say if the speakers can handle as low as 40hz and the crossover on the subwoofer be set to 40hz. Then frequencies between 40hz and 80hz will be handled by both speakers and subwoofer. And that may be a problem?

    Using the one on REL by trial and error I guess? If I had a pre out board in devialet I would have been able to configure that online... Do you have suggestions as I'm quite new to this topic? Thank you

    Hi besides adding a sub, upgrading speakers, I was also advised a third option by a local audiophile friend: to find a more powerful amp like the ME products to fully explore the potential of my current speakers. In one post he recommended one guy mentioned that he used two ME850s to drive a pair of Martin Logans. It reminds me of bi-amping as a possible solution too? However then I'll have to deal with the built in passive crossovers of the speakers and matching the gains of two amps... While this may be part of the fun of hifi: so many things you can experiment! lol

    Guess just using the high level input to connect one sub in one system...

    Yeah I see what you mean. Maybe the sub's placement, crossover etc are very different in the two systems...That's a problem indeed. Would be much easier to keep just one...

    For now I'll just plug in and out, switching the sub between two systems. If it works out I may buy the second one. But I'll still face the two subs in one system or one sub in each system dilemma...lol

    Do I need adding a subwoofer (or two)?

    Hi, thank you all again for your responses! I just used REL's online speaker pairing tool to find out that for both of my speakers I only need one REL T9i subwoofer (given my floor area is between 100 to 200 sqft). However, my question will be: is it better to have one REL T9i or two REL T5i?
