For you to be able to perform your best on stage you need impeccably clear sound, and that’s exactly what our vertical stacking concept delivers. By stacking vertically, you retain your tone’s natural low-end, while also being able to hear every single detail in your playing loud and clear. You can mix and match our different cabs to your heart’s desire and find the exact combination of low-end rumble and high-end definition that speaks to you.
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 4×10″ 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.
