    So I just got a Ten2 extension cab. Nice little cab, still playing around with it. I'm curious, do most of leave it flat or tilted back? And I'm not sure about the controls on the back, Room Coupling control and Teeter Attenuator. Any feedback on your experiences would be great, thanks!!!

    I use my Ten2 extension this way: on hard surfaces I don't use the stand; on plywood or hollow stages I reduce the output of the bottom speaker; on carpet I use the tilt stand; I have never used the tweeter attenuation feature because I can't hear the difference on my bass.

    I turn the tweeter off and don't bother with the Room Coupling.

    Until you mentioned it I didn't even know it had a tilt stand! I usually stack my Coda on top anyway.

    Hi. I've turned the tweeter on and off and really haven't noticed a difference, though I haven't used it in many different locations yet. I guess I won't worry much about them, maybe just play around a little more. Thanks!!

    The tweeter is noticeable (or more noticeable) when playing bass guitar, guitar, violin, keys, etc, through the Ten2. There's just not a ton of content in the range it covers that gets produced by the DB, and I've never felt a tweeter necessary to get a great UB tone through the cab.

    I always run the "room coupling" control wide open. Even if the combo is put in a corner or on a boomy stage, I prefer to ride the HPF to get rid of the mud, while still having the output of the two speakers.
