Svs, Rel, or ?.

I going to buy a pair of subs to use with my Dynaudio XD200 wireless speakers for music. 


I can put a sub by each speaker and want to keep the size down as much as possible. Medium sized room, the signal for the sub is from a Blusound Node. I’m not a bass head, but appreciate tight, tuneful bass. 


The Svs micro is interesting to me, but I’ve read favorable reviews for Rel through the years, especially for music. Unfortunately, there are no speaker outputs for the Rel, just the Node output. (I’m not sure how critical the speaker outputs are to the Rel’s ability to blend with main speakers.)

Svs micro vs Rel T5i, what are your opinions? 

Other compact sub recommendations are welcome.




The good reports regarding the Rythmik subs make me second guess. The cons are the size and expense of the Rythmiks F12se vs the 3000 micro. I’d planned to put a sub behind each main and I like the compact size of the micros. 

I went with wireless speakers and streaming to simplify and streamline my setup, the compact sub idea is an extension of that goal.  

Thanks again for all of your input and consideration! Have a great weekend!


FYI, I have an older Mirage 10” sub the size of a small steamer trunk and a Svs Sound Cylinder 12”. They are just too large to tuck away. I use the larger subs in a home theater room. That may be another reason a compact sub is appealing.


Again, thanks for the help!

+1 SVS here..

Love mine, great customer support also.. had my hardwood floors replaced and ended up losing the power cord when everything was pulled for the work, I emailed SVS support looking to buy a replacement and they sent me a brand new one free!! 👍
