    So my 200 is also treated inside? I didn't know that.

    Pretty sure it is. The Rumble 115 most definitely is. Use a decent flashlight and peek in through one of the ports. The back panel should have an off white fibrous material applied. I don't know what it is. I can ask, but as always, not sure Fender will tell me.

    My 500 has the fibrous white material on the back panel, so I would guess the 200, which has the same size cabinet, should have it also. My 40 doesn't.

    Also I forgot to mention that I utilized the foot switch option to use the overdrive from my 500 combo. It was a nice punch that added nicely to a few songs.

    Has anyone used other amps with the 210 extension cab? I wanted to know because I am going to use my Genz Benz STM-900 with it, and was wondering what others have experienced.

    Today's Rumble Talk focuses the spotlight on three recent topics of Rumble Club interest. From my friend at F.M.I.C. comes this timely information.

    1) re: acoustic treatment in Rumble 200 & 500 combos and all Rumble cabinets. "The acoustic treatment is specified as 1.5in thick polyester fiber."

    re: cab sim circuitry "The cab sim circuit is only present on the HP and XLR outputs (as noted on the block diagram for all Rumble 40-500 models) and is not found in the signal sent to the main speaker(s). Decent headphones and studio monitors (or PA systems) have better (or flatter) high frequency response to your ears than a typical bass cabinet, so we compensate for this by gently rolling out high frequencies for a smoother, less harsh, and more pleasing experience."

    3) as an aside these comments were made regarding daisy chaining. "...the proper way to daisy chain two Rumble models has been properly shown, from SEND on main unit to RETURN of second unit with the bass connected to the main unit INPUT." Thanks @Scott Truesdell for this post Fender Rumble Club In the case of the Rumble 40 which has no effects loop ... "Technically you can run the SEND to the second amp INPUT (there is no risk of damage), but the line level signal at the SEND may overdrive the input stage so you will need to reduce the GAIN on the second amp. And re-amping the signal this way will allow one to use the second preamp controls, but may not produce the desired results so it is up to the individual."

    Rumble On! :cool:

    You are quite welcome. That's just one of many things that makes our club special.

    Absolutely! I only asked about acoustic treatment and the cab sim circuit because I was unsure about them. The daisy-chain intel was just an 'Oh! By-the -way ...' comment which shows we are being read from time-to-time. It's all good.

    Excellent information - thank you Fender and Linnin!

    When I chained the R100 Send to R40 Input, I did watch my Gain/Master on the R40 and didn't push it. Turned out the R100 gain was at nil. I had also previously chained the SCRDI to the R40 Input, which is probably the same pre-amp into pre-amp (again, I watched the settings/nothing crazy).

    I checked out the R100 effects loop with my pedals. The Polytech Tuner and "JamMan Stereo" are going back through the Input side for better/Amp volume control. I'll keep everything else in the loop.

    Snow kept me home today, so will have time for more Rumble goodness! :D

    Thanks for the info, I was wondering what the cab sim circuit was meant to do.

    The Fender Rumble Club is a great place to hang out. Plenty of smart talented members. Lots of technical savvy. Camaraderie abounds. I am very excited as we approach our third anniversary in March.

    I just received my 210 Rumble cab today. I was able to do a quick eval using my Genz STM-900 and let me say that the cab seems very responsive to tone changes. Seems to handle the 500 watts no problem, but I will try it out at my gig Friday. A small club without PA support. Very light too!
