鳴り響く重低音

K-212は、2 x 12インチ・カスタムLFドライバー + 1インチ・セラミック・ツイーターのドライバー構成で、存在感あるローエンドとパンチ・明瞭性あふれるベース・サウンドを再生します。重量23 kg、8 Ohms/400 Wの仕様で、現代のプレイヤーが対面する様々なシチュエーションを柔軟にこなします。

  • 軽量/ポータブル・デザイン
  • 高品位カスタム・ドライバー搭載
  • レトロモダンな外観

 

スタック・マウント対応

Kシリーズは、単体使用はもちろん、キャビネットのスタッキングを想定した設計がなされています。縦置きのスタックでは、ナチュラルなローエンドと演奏の細かなニュアンスを維持したまま音量を増強。複数機種の組み合わせでは、トーンの調整を含めたサウンド構築が行えます。

トーンを犠牲にしない軽量設計

多くのベース・プレイヤーにとって、機材の運搬は悩みとなりがちです。Kシリーズは、演奏場所に合わせた持ち込み機材の選定や、実際の搬入・搬出の負担を、大きく軽減することとなるかもしれません。

細部にまでこだわったデザイン性

堅牢な構造。そして、レトロモダンなルックスのフロントグリルの背面に佇む、ナチュラルな再生音を誇るカスタム・ドライバー。Kシリーズの作りは、細部まで上質を物語ります。

Vertical Stacking Explained

Vertical Stacking... It may sound like a term that was developed by our sales and marketing departments, but in reality Vertical Stacking was born in our bass development department. The concept emerged from years and years of bass playing. Yep, that's right! The guys developing TC bass gear are actually bass players themselves, and they know what it's like out there in the real world of bass.


The Problem

If you ever play gigs at small to mid-sized venues or at private parties, you have probably decided to only bring one bass cab sometimes. Typically one with a 4x10" speaker configuration.

However, sound is very sentitive to direction and surface reflections... If you place a 4 x10" cab on the floor, sound waves will bounce off the floor, which is great for getting that fat low-end impact - but the downside is that you can't hear the details of your playing. Well, your knees can, but not your ears.

One solution is to place the cab on a chair, a rack case or similar. Now, you can hear the mid and high frequencies much better, but now the downside is lack of low-end presence. Since you elevated the cab, you loose the early reflections boucning off the floor. 

In other words, no matter what you do, using only one 4 x 10" cab means a compromise on sound quality.


Horizontal Alternative

As long as you use TC cabinets, most of our amp can actually handle 3 cabs simultaneously.

Obviously, it would become a very tall stack if you stacked 3 2x10" or 2x12" cabs vertically, in fact you may not be able to reach the amp...

But don't worry, due to the extra cab, it actually makes sense to stack them in the traditional, horizontal way if you hook up three cabs.

The Solution

The solution to the problem is our unique Vertical Stacking concept. There is nothing wrong with using 4 10" speakers. In most situations, that is more than enough - the problem is that all 4 speakers are fitted inside a square box in a 2x2 configuration.

Our answer is a 4x1 speaker configuration using either two 2x10", 2x10"/2x12" or two 2x12" cabs. Whether you want 10 or 12" speakers or a combination, the point is that you stack the speakers vertically.

Quite simply, you get the best from both 4x10" scenarios: The early reflections adding punch and low-end to your sound, but at at the same time, you can hear every detail thanks to the fact that the top speaker is aligned with your ears. 

No More Compromises. Issue Solved!


Classic Stacking

If weight and space is less of a concern, you can always go for the classic configuraion of 8x10" cabs. Obviously, this solution will also give you all the benefits of vertical stacking using smaller cabs.

The K-series bass cabinets are not just accessories to the BH series bass head. These cabinets are an entity all their own. They are tight sounding, rear-ported cabinets with plenty of bass response and high-end clarity.
