No one has a REL T7?

I don't have a T7, but I do have a T3, which is the small model. I got it because I was downsizing and it replaced a Paradigm PW2200 (I believe it was).
It wasn't too long before I regretted it. The Paradigm just did everything so effortlessly, as it should have at almost three times the power and size.
In any case, my rig is a two channel only setup. I have it paired with a set of Paradigm Studio 10s and it does very well from a sound quality perspective.
I did, however, have some issues with it. First, the woofer fires down. The driver that is pointing out of the front is just a passive radiator. I have mine sitting on a tile floor and when driven hard, the whole unit will bounce around. I don't know that this is an issue with down firing models in general or just this particular model, but it's been an issue for me.
Another thing is that, on occasion, I'll hearing something rattling and I can't, for the life of me, find where it's coming from. I just about took the whole thing apart trying to find the rattle to no avail. When taking it apart, my impression of the unit was that it wasn't built very well. A couple of the screw holes were stripped too.
If I had it to do over again, I'd get something else. Still, like I said, it does put out good, fast bass. I haven't replaced it because I don't use it much.
