    Hi all,

    As indicated in my subject, I'm new to the forum and new to TC. I recently ordered a Classic 450 and some RS cabinets (112 and a 210). online and am expecting delivery in the coming weeks! Can't wait!

    I've enjoyed reading the forum so far, and it helped sway me into switching over in to TC bass amp territory (used to be a Fender Bassman guy).

    I'm a bass player in a local country rock band in northern Canada (the "north of the north" if you will).

    I'm looking forward to my TC Electronic gear!

    I am to be a new RH450 owner this next week! I can hardly wait! I am curious about the RH450's headphone output quality. I want to use the head as a practice amp with headphones. I have a set of Sennheiser 595's. I have a Send Station PocketDock Line Out adapter that will bypass the IPod eq.

    My question is this... How's the heaphone output quality? Most headphone outputs on guitar amps are pretty poor. How does the RH 450 stack up? Will a headphone amp with eq or eq by itself help in the reproduction? I was wondering what other RH450 owners have found.

      CAW It's a volume control specific to the preset.



      Consider you have one preset that uses EQ to boost a lot. This will inheriently have move volume than a preset that uses EQ to primarily cut. If you switch between these two presets in a gig, the first one will sound much louder than the second. Usually, this is not desirable -- you want your presets to all be around the same output volume. So you can use the preset level to balance the volume of each of your presets so that they are roughly equal. You can then use master volume to dial in a listening level appropriate to the venue you are playing in.

    Hi TC User Support,
    normally I use an EQ only to solve acoustic problems in a room.
    I own a chart that shows the frequencies of the single notes on the bass fretboard, so I can identify a frequency that causes acoustic problems very easily.
    Now I would like to know what frequencies the single "dots" of the 4 EQ bands represent? Is it linear so I could divide the range between the center frequency and the lowest/highest frequency by the number of LEDs or is it somehow different?
    If there is a table showing the frequencies this would be very helpful because then I could influence problematic frequencies in a room very quickly.
    Thank you in advance and best regards
    Peter

      Revolver323 The RH450 manual list the range of the four tone controls as follows:



      Center Freq: 280Hz (range: 71-1120Hz,

      Gain: +15/-24dB)

      Center Freq: 400Hz (range: 100-1600Hz,

      Gain: +15/-24dB)

      Center Freq: 800Hz (range: 200-3150Hz,

      Gain: +15/-24dB)

      Center Freq: 1600Hz (range: 400-6300Hz,

      Gain: +12/-24dB)



      Of course I have no idea if you can divide the frequencies by the number of dots on the display, but that might be a starting point. Why not try it with you other chart and see if it works.



      As for TC support, have you called or e-mailed them directly?

      Yes, they told me they have no chart or map of the the dot related frequencies and that the EQ bands are not linear. They recommended to do it by ear.

      peterhfi Correction:

      I have just read in the big RH450 thread (Part IV) on talkbass.com, that a frequency chart created by an TB member is correct. Uffe vom TC confirmed this.

      Best regards,

    Got my RH450 last week...what a marvel...played an OUTDOOR gig on Saturday in Florida...amp never showed any sign of heat and performed flawlessly...now if I can only figure out what that little rattle is coming from the inside? Any ideas?

      JayGarrett Yeah - it's such a great amp. Plenty of punch and power without breaking your back.

      Revolver323 Inside of the cabinet or the amp head? Only when you're playing, or if you pick up the head & shake it?
      • July 16, 2010
    • lowendjoe
      lowendjoe Its a small noise near the face of the head, ONLY if I shake it ...doesn't seem to be an issue regarding performance...got an RS212 a couple weeks ago and this really is a killer rig...the B string (Bongo) is clear and punchy...my Refrigerator is retired ...
      • July 16, 2010
    • lowendjoe
      Revolver323 Loose solder or washer? That's be my guess. Doctor's advice: Do not shake the head.

      BASSically I would take it back to where you bought it and have their tech open it up and check it out.

      If is is metal it only has to short something once to be big trouble.

      Play it safe . Get it checked out and let us know what you found. Could be a heads up for the rest of us out here.

      Don Hi Guys.

      I'm on the look out for a new combo and..

      I wonder if anyone had an exact release date for these combos in Europe?

      I look forward to being able to try them out and getting myself one as a result.

      JayGarrett I've heard whispers of a June release but not sure. They do look good as do the specs.

      lasher Is anyone aware if TC has any intentions of doing another model of the great new line of bass rigs that contains TC's infamouse chorus effect? Seems like a no brainer - best chorus around to go in one of these cool new bass models. Please advise...

      Revolver323 I expect a BG500 115 for review any time now. I haven't heard a European release date, but they are shipping now in the US.

    ok, I JUST bought an RH450, but I didn't buy a cab yet cuz:
    1) I don't exactly which one to get yet
    2) I can't afford it right now
    3) the place I rehearse has rigs, so I can just use those cabs till my next gig

    My question has do do with the last point...

    I've read the RH450 manual and I know its minimum load is 4 ohms.

    However, I know nothing about this stuff (I've always owned combos till now), so I want to make sure I understand this...

    If I intend to plug my RH450 into a single cab that says ____ ohms, I *think* it goes like this:

    8 ohms = OK
    6 ohms = OK
    4 ohms = OK
    anything else = NO!

    Can someone please confirm?

    Thanks!

      killerbob Well ... I would like to have this explained.... Some of the TC cabs have no ohm rating - but eg the 112 is rated 8 Ohms ...



      So if you take 3 x 112 the total resistance is aprox 2,6 ohms - and that is according to the manuals OK provided that the cabs is TC



      Can someone tell me why it's not OK with other brands ???



      I have - from before the RS's came on the market - 2 EBS NEO 112 8ohms. I am happy with them as they are LIGHT and sounds great but would like one more... do I really have to get rid of them and buy 3 RS112's
      • July 10, 2010
    • yogurtboy
      Revolver323 If you're happy with the sound, stick with it. TC says the RH450 & Staccato will power "Any three RS cabs." Rocco Prestia uses one RS410 and two Rs212s. Yes, the load would be above 2 ohms. 2 ohms seems to be the lowest allowable ohmage I've seen anywhere. Mt Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 pushes 600 watts at 4 ohms. The amp will shut down at 2 ohms.

    Salud!

    Greetings from Madrid, Spain. I've just bought a RH450 + RC212 + pedalboard. So far, I really love the sounds it makes.

    I have two features requests, in case someone considers them interesting:

    1) Although the pedalboard display is very clear, it would be helpful (if you don't own it or don't have it plugged) for the "sharp" symbol to be in the lower part of the head display. When looked from above, it's very easy to miss it.

    2) I'd love to be able to send the RCA aux signal to the cabinet, so I can play to a drum machine or iPod without using headphones. Would it be possible with a soft upgrade, or is it physically impossible?

      • July 5, 2009
    • Krakmann
      mcnach Same here. I was very disappointed when I found I couldn't hear my drum machine through the speakers, as I thought this amp would replace my practice amp + gigging amp set up, as one amp would do it all.
      • July 26, 2009
    • Krakmann
      peterhfi Hi everybody,

      I agree with the feature request of sending aux in signals (drum machine, etc.) to the headphone output and to the speakers as well.



      Another feature request would be to have other surface options for the speaker cabinets due to the fact of scratches, small damages, etc. which can occur very easily (as already mentioned here, in the Talkbass forum and different reviews).



      Besides that thanks a lot for a great bass system with innovative and creative features.

      Peter
      • July 27, 2009
    • Krakmann
      mcnach Regarding the ability to get the aux input signal through the speakers, I suppose what one can do is use a simple little mixer. Use the mixer to mix the preamp-out signal and the drum machine, mp3 player etc, and take the output of the mixer back to the power amp in.

      That should work, right?

      The question is only, which mixer?

    G'day,

    Apart from the different look and the integrated tuner what are the differences between the two amps? Do they sound the same?
    Thanks
    0 5,051
    • AustLakland
      yogurtboy another difference (and it's a big one) is that the RH450 has memory settings; you can assign 3 different sounds to memory 'banks' and recall them instantly by pressing the assigned button (or by stepping on the optional footswitch)



      The Classic 450 does not have this memory feature
