2 Rel T7s or 1 Rel T9???


I'm replacing a pair of Rel T2s in my 2 channel system. Considering a pair of T7s or a single T9. Looking for opinions on running a larger single sub vs a smaller pair. My room is smallish, 12x19. For me, it's about the music not a floor shaking experience.
THANKS!

Larseand-

no doubt that REL makes the best sub in the marketplace!
I would try (1) sub, 1st and after several months of dedicated listening, make a decision about adding the 2nd sub.

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
You will be better off with 2 smaller subs which will diminish low frequency room modes. For detailled explanations, read Floyd E. Toole 'Sound Reproduction'.
Also - read the latest article about subwoofers in the Absolute Sound magazine, this month's. Everything I've read points to the superiority of two subs. Two 7's should be
great.
There is no guarantee that two subs will provide a smoother bass response than a single sub. It all depends on where you place them. If you have complete freedom to place two subs, then it's possible that you can obtain a smoother bass response over a wider area than with a single sub.

You don't have to read Dr. Toole's book. The multiple sub whitepaper is available at Harman's web site.
Larseand, are you planning on selling your pair of T-2s on Audiogon?
Thank you for your input and expertise. I am going with the pair of T7s! I think it makes good sense on several levels. Ben_wood, sorry to report, the T2s are gone on a trade.

Any suggestions for bass heavy recordings for sub run in period?

Thanks!
