Tc Electronics RH/RS reviews

Recommended Posts

Tonight’s rehearsal was a different experience to last week, different room...

does the combo want to be place close to a wall or away from it ? 

I found it boomy when close to the wall but lost when away from it and having to be driven harder....

is there a optimum distance ?

I would generally place a bass cab away from a wall, to avoid the boominess you describe.
Perhaps there is an optimum distance, but remember that will also apply to walls opposite the front of the speaker - which will usually be closer to you in a rehearsal room than most live situations you're in. Were you in the exact same rehearsal room as last week, or a different one? Was the layout and distribution all the other gear the same? 

Another thing to think about, is slightly leaning the speaker cab backwards. There was a thread about this, some time back on here. It was quite interesting and there was a useful diagram, demonstrating what happens to the sound when you do this.

RS cabs will always sound great, they are very underrated and undervalued as TC is no longer flavour of the month.

Agreed, my 212 is really good - happy enough to want a 210 to match. Like the 450, not many come up used so I may have to shell the £500 for a new one.  I think the RS cabs are up there with the current sexy names, but like you say they have fallen off-trend for now.

I’ve used an RH450/210/112 stack and it sounded great, plenty of power and a nice core tone to it. 

Probably the rig I've still got ;)

I can't see any reason to change. Loud, light and compact.

I find my RS212 sounds better when im not standing too close to it. Try moving further away. I also tend to drive mine harder when im standing close to it, but on the recordings i do of the rehearsals its very loud and clear.

That were the one, had a great sound to it.

I sold my RH450/RS210 rig several years ago to a local bass player... he recently gave up playing and was getting shot of all his gear so I bought the rig back for an embarrassingly small amount of cash just because it was such a good deal... know they have had their day in the sun at this stage but its still a great sounding rig for pretty much any genre and will cope with reasonably large rooms too... I'm very happy to have it back again 🙂
