ハイクオリティー・スピーカーメーカーとして定評のあるEminence社と共同開発されたRS210ベース用キャビネットは、コンパクトサイズながらもパンチのあるサウンドを提供するテクノロジーを秘めています。

RS210は、Dual Concentric™同軸スピーカー・テクノロジーを採用し、ウーファーの中心にHFツイーターを内蔵することにより、最適な音響拡散とパフォーマンスを実現します。HFツイーターはベースピッチの輪郭を明瞭に保つ役割があり、Lo成分に埋もれない芯のあるベースラインを聴かせることができます。キャビネット背面にHFレベルを調整するツマミが配置されており、演奏環境に合わせたサウンド・メイキングが可能です。

キャビネットの表面は傷が付きづらい素材を使用し、スタック・マウントしてもズレにくい特殊な滑り止め加工が施されています。

スタック・マウント対応

RS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。RS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。

同軸ドライバー設計

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 private parties or small to mid-sized venues, you probably decided to only bring one bass cab - typically one with a 4x10" speaker configuration.  

If you place a 4 x10" cab on the floor the sound waves will bounce off the floor.  While this is great for getting that fat low-end impact, 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 the downside is lack of low-end presence. Since you elevated the cab, you lose the early reflections bouncing off the floor. 

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


Horizontal Alternative

As long as you use TC cabinets, most of our amps 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.

The early reflections add punch and low-end to your sound, but 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 configuration of 8x10". Or how about 2x12" in the bottom, 4x10" in the middle and 2x10" on top? Obviously, such solutions will also give you all the benefits of vertical stacking using smaller cabs.

Just like early reflections are key to the Vertical Stacking concept, you can take advantage of the same phenomenon if you use either an RS212 or RS112 as the lower cabinet and an RS210 as the upper cabinet.

It's perfectly fine to align the front of each cabinet, but if you want to emphasize clarity and definition in a natural way (without adjusting the tone controls of the amp), try pushing the upper RS210 cab back a bit.

Now, you will get eary reflections of the upper cabinet coming your way, and even though it may sound like a minor adjustment, the difference is significant and you can control the amount of early reflections by how far you push back the RS210 cab.

レビュー

Premier Guitar

With the vertical stack, I heard a clean, focused sound with a smooth middle and tight bottom. Everything lines up really neatly, and the head fits atop with grace and style.

The RS210 and RS212 8-ohm cabinets are optimized for vertical stacking. In this arrangement, you get the benefit of really hearing your tone as it sounds. The speakers handled everything we threw at them, and they stayed tight and focused with almost everything we threw at them. This is a rig for players seeking clean, punchy bass tone. It’s big, it’s rich, and it’s beautiful sounding.

As expected, each of the cabinets has its own distinctive tone, and I tried any combination of the three. The RS210 offered surprising amounts of volume with no distortion, as did the RS212, while the larger Rs410 is above par compared to many other current manufacturers. My back as well as my ears love them.
