    Hi I have a BH500 bass head. It says 4ohm min load. Can I connect this head to a single TC Electronic BC212 8ohm cab. Would this be safe for the amp? 

     

    Thanks 

    Stuart

      Patlinger Hi Stuart, this is no problem, you can use a cab with 4 or more Ohm. Just be sure to not go less than 4 Ohm. BUT if you combine two 8 Ohm cabs the load will be 4 Ohm, and if you combine two 4 Ohm cabs you will get 2 Ohm load. You see, you have to be careful.

    I am running a BAM 200 through a RX210 and a RS212 currently. I saw a video on your site that said  most TC Electronics bass amps could handle 3 cabinets, which would push the ohm load to 2.66ohms

    My question is will my little BAM 200 handle this, and if not which TC Electronics bass amp will?

    Hi

    I am struggling to understand exactly which cable I need to connect the recording xlr socket (not the DI socket) to my computer DAW software. Do I need a converter (XLR-USB plus DAC), or the same but with out the Analog-Digital converter?

    Thanks for anyone's help!!

    Hi all, I have a TC Electronic Staccato '51 head and I'm trying to figure out the frequencies for each dial position of the 4 frequency ranges (24 each), I believe these may be represented by a compound curve. Would anyone know and have this data please?

    Is the parts to the TC Electronic RH 750 bass amp compatible with the TC Electronic Blacksmith bass amp parts, mean the three channel memory board.

    Replacement speakers for TC electronics BC208 technically I suppose that my cabinets are in the warranty. I have one speaker driver that is functioning but started to smoke the other evening while I was performing. I would like to get it replaced and would also like to purchase additional ones to have spares if this happens again. I own two Of these cabinets

    Hello, I have purchased a Bugera 15BXDA bass amp and have some questions about the lights. 

    I use a lot of fuzz and distortion on my bass and the the red clip light keeps flashing. Can that damage my amp and what can I do to remedy that issue?

    Also, the orange light that circles the volume knob turns red. Why does it do that and what can I do to address that issue?

     

    Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi Martin, please see below as you will have a image with the full information about what the lights on your unit and what they mean. If effectively your unit is not behaving as it should please follow the link below to submit a assistance request for your unit https://community.musictribe.com/pages/create-new-ticket?type=service%20request

      Deftones210 Yes I have that paper. But you have not answered my questions. Will the clipping make long term damage to my amp?

      Deftones210 Also, what does it mean when the orange light around the volume knob turns red? That is not in they manual.

    I was watching a review for the BH800... I assume it is more or less similar to the BH550 with only the wattage differing. 

    https://youtu.be/OIFHh2mLg5c

    The reviewer indicated the BH800 was a class D power amp and therefore has a slower attack than other amplifiers.

    I've never heard amps described that way before, can anyone help me understand what it means?

      PedroRodrigues Hi, Jkblight thank you for your post, please take in to account that there are two basic types of power amplifiers: linear and switch-mode.
      The Class-D amp is a type of switch-mode amplifier that consists of three stages: the input switching stage, the power amplification stage, and the output filter stage.
      A common misconception is that a switching power amplifier is an amplifier with a switching power supply.

      A switching power amplifier utilizes switching technology as a means to amplify the signal, whereas a switching power supply is using switching to provide AC mains power.
      In linear amp designs, the output power transistors amplify the incoming signal analogous to the input signal (same signal only louder).

      In a switching amp, the incoming audio signal modulates the width of an ultrasonic square wave in the output transistors.

      This modulated square wave is then low-pass filtered. The result is the amplified analog signal sent to the speakers. This signal processing is called Pulse Width Modulation or PWM.

      In operation, a switching power amp uses several pairs of power output transistors with each pair operating as switches (transistors can operate either as amplifiers or switches) in a push-pull arrangement. One transistor of each pair turns fully on (saturation) while the other is off, then they alternate.

      One transistor always produces a positive voltage when it is on; the other always produces a negative voltage when it is on. When a transistor acts as an open switch, the current through it is ideally zero.

      When the same transistor acts as a closed switch, the voltage across it is also ideally zero. Whether the switch is open or closed, the power dissipated as heat – current times voltage – would ideally be zero. The result is less power wasted, which means improved efficiency – theoretically 100%.

      Since the output transistors develop almost no current (when off) or no voltage (when on), they produce almost no power wasted as heat. Increased efficiency requires less power from a power supply and smaller or no heat sinks for the amplifier.

      These are important advantages in portable battery-powered equipment. Since the class-D amplifier works in an on/off mode, people mistakenly think that the “D” in class-D means “digital “.

      This is not the case.

      There is no digital coding of the signal. The function of class-D is based on analogue principles.

      Class-D amplifier applications range from battery-powered portable products such as mobile phones, high-end professional amplifiers, musical instruments, and home multimedia systems.


      Please take in to account that I have seen other customer asking information about the same thing and it is difficult to make generalizations, especially when we are referring exclusively to the amps since much is also related to the speakers.
      Nevertheless "fast vs slow" has a lot to do with the bass and it's much more about the transients and the attack.


      Please take in to account that there is no right or wrong or better or worse when it comes to the perception of fast vs slow, as this is a case of perception some Amp may be faster for some and the same Amp may be slower for other.

    Hi all -

    I have an RH450 bass amp head that I bought in the USA a decade ago.  I recently moved to the UK.  Can I simply swap the USA power cable for a UK one like I do for my computer?  Or do I need to plug the unit into a step-down transformer to externally convet the 220 volts to 110 like on my vintage amps?

    Thanks!

      DavidKnighton Hello Agent00Soul,
      The device has a universal power input that will accept a range of AC Mains voltage from 100 ~ 240 Volts. All you need to do is find the correct AC Mains IEC plug for UK and let er rip.
