    So I'm planning on getting two Sansamp RPM's, currently have the Sansamp RBi that I'm going to trade in for an RPM, so I was just wondering if having two RPMs plugged into one cabinet can give me the privilege to control my top and bottom end or do I have to get another cabinet?

    If you combine them back in, then I don't see why not...

    Well I've always thought you need to have two cabs to have separate channels for top and bottom end.:bag:

    Yeah sure you can get the highs & lows going into 1 cab but its supposed to be going into 2 seperate cabs (Bi-amped) 1 does the highs & the other lows. The RBI & RPM rule when paired together.Seperating the Lows from the Highs into 2 seperate cabs is just awesome `BUT you can also have them signals going into 1 cab.
    I wouldnt sell the RBI if i were you, i would keep the RBI & still go ahead & get the RPM & link them together for some over the top Tube Grind.
    The RPM has the Semi Para Mid Control which gives you great control over most of the freq needed. You can easily do this with the RBI & RPM. I mean the RBI is capable of doing what you want to do & if you pair it up with an RPM
    WATCH OUT !! Your gonna have some serious tones there.
    Good luck matey.

    IMHO, it won't work like what I think you intend, at least not well. I have an RPM/ParaDI, and think it is great, but the variable mid EQ will pretty much erase a mid frequency bump in the input signal that is not near the band boosted by it's (variable) center frequency. Futhermore, a single RPM already gives you independent low, mid, and high EQ bands, with the center F of the mid variable. What would a second one in the chain really offer? :confused:
