    I'm contemplating doing the change - I like the smaller size of the REl and the downward firing speaker - more kid safe.

    Is the sound of the REL going to be better ? Usage is mainly for HT. Processor is a Pioneer AX5i

    I'm only guessing but I would be surprised if the sound were noticeable better and could in fact end up worse than the M&K

    Sorry mate ut I think your bonkers to change from the M&K to the didy little REL. It would be a real down grade. Remember the old saying you cant squeeze a gallon out of a pint pot :smashin:

    My sentiments exactly. I think the Strata 5 is highly overrated when I heard it.

    Good enough, just not to the level as I have read.

    I heard the Strata 5 last week and wasn't impressed at all. If you want a small powerful sub something like a Velodyne SPL or B&W ASW 675 would be a much better choice.
