Revolution Is My Name
Just like RH450 and RH750 has taken your expectation to a bass amp up a level, our range of RS cabs will revolutionize your on-stage performance.

Stack 'Em High!
We do no believe in conventions or rules. Sure, you adhere to the rules to a certain point - but then you break them! That thought is what lies behind our unique vertical stacking concept that frees up space on the stage, takes weight off your back and most importantly, lets you hear every detail of your playing without sacrificing low-end punch.
The RS cabs come in 4 models: 4x10", 2x10", 2x12" or 1x12", and you can mix and match as well as stack them both vertically and horizontally as you see fit.
Fat Tone, Skinny Weight
If have a crew of roadies to handle your gear, weight is not a concern of course, but if you have to handle your own rig after a long gig, you know that a +130 lbs. 8x10" cab can suddenly transform itself from a source of sound to Mission Impossible...
Enter our RS cabs. They pack some serious power, but that does not translate into serious weight! In fact, you'll find it a breeze to load and unload the van when you're gigging with our range of RS bass cabs.
No, we're not talking about overdrive here... When we decided to go into making bass cabs, we did it like we do everything we attempt: 100%. Otherwise, what's the point?
So we teamed with the speaker gurus over at Eminence to design a dual-concentric driver that fits a 1" tweeter inside the main driver.
You may not be able to see it, but it's definitely there making those crispy highs that add a touch of magic to your tone.
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.
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.
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 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!
If weight and space is less of a concern, you can always go for the classic configuraion 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 is 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.
You can align the front of each cabinet, which is perfectly fine, but if you want to emphasize clarity and definition in a natural way (without adjusting the tone controls of the amp), try to push 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. Control the amount of eary refelctions by how far you push back the RS210 cab.
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.Check out the full review by Premier Guitar
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.Check out the full review by Music Players
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.Check out the full review by Performing Musician (PDF)
