Tc electronic bass set up one cab only?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm thinking of getting a TC Electronic BH550 head with two RS410 cabs. Could I run the head through just one of the cabs at lower volume when needed? 

Cheers

Chris

Yes that should be fine, as BH550 specs quote 550 W into 4 ohms load, and RS410 cabs are 600W at 8 ohms each. Running into one cab will give approx 5O% power output. Running both cabs will give combined load of 4 ohms and full power output.

Got a used 550 as a back-up recently, really good and the toneprints are ace. I'd say get a used one and try and find one with the 3-way footswitch (mute, print1, print2).

I've had a BH550 for 4 years now. I've played dozens, if not hundreds of gigs and it hasn't missed a beat. Tonally it's seen off every other amp I've ever played through (a fair few highly regarded ones). It has such a clear and composed tone that I'd describe as 'Studio' tone on stage.

It was loud enough for most stages at 8 ohms through one cab and absolutely incredible through two at 4ohms.

Good call on the RS cabs, I've used Markbass, Gallien Krueger, Ampeg and Epifani cabs with it but it always sounded best with the 2 2x10 K-Series cabs I had (for which it was designed). 

Enjoy!
