Going by fb reviews loool d&b punters just want loud bass. Freq, warmth, flat, round it doesnt matter. Volume is king for those gigs unfortunatly. My partner in crime/sound played in a soundchek style event with them and was the same thing again. On any booking if you take 20-30 cabs to a 12 cab venue you are gona get great reviews from drunk punters regardless.

Trouble is we have to split the argument, Roots/Reggae and other. One has pre-amp, one not and there IMHO is the rub.



Odd that several RC1 clients have used us as well because we get much lower than their reflex... I think again your comments about people confusing 55-80 peak output as sub is even more true. But without measurements who can say for sure...


Interesting: Only reviews I've seen say it's mad from front to back, although they are FB reviews so who knows?  Plenty touring companies hit the back with 2x18's reflex. Perhaps the RC1 thing is just a one trick pony for D&B?  Anyway as the physics zealots tell us, throw does not exit so.......
As for the confusion by the public about 55/80 I think this is proven by the F218 and I'll get my coat.Wink

Oh i don't doubt that it really does the business in a lot of spots and fair play to the guys, but my point is that a great many people hear those upper harmonics and their brain fills in the low notes. There's a whole world of Waves stuff built around that exact principle and it's used on loads of proper gigs too. Same with valve compression.

I love me a good reflex, literally half my favourite boxes are reflex, but if you boost the shit out of 60 odd people seem to think it's brutal and low. I did just that in Berlin recently on a scoop rig in fact...

And quite a lot of tunes that people say drop low still have their fundamental at 45-60 so again do that really well and it doesn't matter so much.

Agreed. Rc1 took 6 bass cabs to golden palace and it was very dissapointing. Loud 55-80hz as said, nothing really underneath. Took a couple steps back from the stack and half of it dissapeared! Middle and back of the room was nothing there at all. Now im not knocking their hustle as they know if you take out x3 times the amount of cabs its gna be loud no matter what with x amounts of stacks. But box for box for terrible. Im not surprised toasty is getting some of their jobs.


heard about rc1 but it will never be on the same level as king earthquake,aba,.& other mans,.very powerfull disco set,..heed ded me but i would out do him on luxuryrious bass line ./LOL
