What are the advantages and disadvantages of the r500 compared to the r200?  I’m using a rega brio, rel t5i sub and the room is 18 m2.

Asked by: Kbaum
Considering the REL subwoofer, either the R500 or R200 should blend nicely into your system. Both the R500 and R200 provide similar specs. However, the R500 does have a higher sensitivity rating and better Bass response, allowing a lower crossover setting in the REL. It is also worth noting that the R500 does not require a speaker stand. This could be important in homes with children or pets.
