    What's his build time looking like these days? I know I can ask him but I'm more just curious for now. I may be in the market in the next few months.

    The RS48VT is here. While I haven't had too much time with it, it's still a pretty easy assessment.
    I've been using an RS15 + RS12 for several years and have been completely happy with using those, either alone or together as a full stack. As great as they are, I had an itch for one more thing from my bass speakers (ok, maybe more than one thing...LOL). I like tightness and clarity-probably like most of you reading this-along with being able to have enough beef to drive the band. So this is nothing new, I get that. I was on the same quest back when I ran a Phil Jones rig back when they first came out (a failed experiment). I wasn't really planning on buying a new bass cab this year, but then I started playing a short scale bass and started to desire a little more tightness to my sound. That, coupled with GAS, coupled with smaller stages (and a need to hear myself), I eventually found myself placing an order with David. I wanted one cab that can fit in the bay of the tour bus, easily carried and a small footprint. And of course - it's gotta have that sound.

    So, like most of us...I now have this awesome cabinet in my music room, but all tours and gigs have been cancelled. I'm jamming away on this thing to a drum click, and it just makes me smile. It's all there...and you know what? It's really shaging loud and beefy if you want it to be. There is an incredible amount of lows. And it's tight, quick and detailed. So far - it's spot on. I know I'm going to really happy on stage with this cabinet.

    A few other notes: David builds these cabinets with such personal detail - the new wheels are so solid...and the blue python tolex is just cool to look at. This is a guy, running a small shop, building to meet your needs - now that is the kind of guy I like to do business with. He's asked me to shoot a video demo...I've never done that - but I think I should for this. Yeah.

    On other thing...and this is just opinion formed by listening to my audiophile/engineer father, but I'd like to share it. I grew up with some incredible sound systems that pop put together. He used to tell me, when putting together a new system, allow 60%-70% of your total budget to go to the speakers. Amps, etc all have an impact to the sound, but the #1 ingredient is the speakers. I believe that is also true for bass amps.

    Great write up, and I am In the exact same position as you.(almost same location, Oakand NJ:) and was considering the same cab. I have the 210 the 12 and 15. Do you think the 4x8 will be able to replace the 15/12 combo , or would you only use it in some cases? I assume it is 8 ohms, is 400 watts enough to push it?
    Certainly wondering how it compares to the 210 as well, I give David a call on that.
    Thanks - JC

    Thanks. Well, I'm looking at the RS48VT as basically the full time cabinet...in fact, I gave my son the RS12 since he is starting on bass. Will there be times I take out the RS15? I'm sure, but I honestly don't know why. As for your question on power - I think 400W is more than enough, but I'm generally not playing incredibly loud. I can tell you that this thing can really go there if you need it to. I think David has specs on his site.

    I've no doubt the 48VT can handle anything you throw at it. Couple it with an RS115 on the big!! stages and you'd have everything you need. If its not enough, everyone else is too loud.

    Great cab. So it does have wheels and a handle on it? Any chance we can see a picture from the backside?

    Not the best shot, but just to show that David has upgraded the wheels to a much heavier duty set. IMG_20210119_074104.jpg

  14. I just got my RS110. I'm extremely pleased with this cabinet, both build quality and sound quality.

    This replaced an Eden EX110. I loved the small size and weight of that cab, but just couldn't get behind its sound. It was surprisingly loud, kept up with a drum kit playing "reasonably" with no effort. But, the tone was very mid-forward and it wasn't suiting my style.

    I was looking for a cabinet that would get me closer to "my DI sound through studio monitors, just louder" without going back to the big and heavy cabinets I used to play through. I had a nice conversation with David about the options and I ended up going with the 1x10. Boy, is this an upgrade.

    This cab is physically larger than the Eden 1x10 (but not by enough to bother me, it is still plenty portable) but is actually slightly lighter (my RS110 is about 22 lbs). This will certainly be a nice cabinet to move around to gigs once those exist again :crying:

    Tone wise, so far it's doing what I want. It sounds like a good PA. I haven't been able to really push it yet, and probably there will be some break-in period, but even out of the box it fixed the issue I had with the Eden cab coloring my tone more than desired. It is also more efficient than the Eden, so I am not at all worried about volume from this cab for the kind of playing I do.

    I'm looking forward to playing through this thing more. Happy to have found RevSound and to support a small "local" (well, the next state over) builder.

    An unexpected money crunch is forcing me to sell my like new RS210 in the classifieds. I just got it new from David this month.

    Interesting. Because ever since I found this thread, a couple of weeks ago, and reading all 42 pages, I've been contemplating an RS210.
    Hate that you're having to sell so soon after getting it. Hope things look up soon.

    What does the 210t do for me compared to the 210? What will the tweeter do? Can you turn it off?

    You can turn the tweeter off. But in reality the 10” cones are super bright. The rs210 I had was without a tweeter and I had to turn down the treble.

    Just ordered a RS115. Been eyeing single 15 cabs for awhile now. I really liked my RS210 and enjoyed working with David. For whatever reason just prefer single driver cabs. So after a phone call and catching up I asked what lead time was. David actually just finished 4, RS115's and one was not spoken for and had all the specs I wanted! Guess it was meant to be?

    Congratulations, it was meant to be! I am still loving the RS 2-10 that I got from you!
