The RS48 and RS48T with their smooth and articulate character and thick, tight low end make them a perfect option for the player who is looking for something smaller than a 410 that shares the tonality and touch response. Available with or without tweeter, it is more than enough for most rooms and shares the shallow baffle recess design incorporated in all the Revsound line of cabinets. Off axis projection is excellent.
I’ve played on every type of stage from the Filmore West to the smallest roadhouses in New England. On a shallow stage I want the band to be able to hear the bass. Baffle diffraction is a very real and measurable issue. On many cabinets the baffle is recessed too far. Comb filtering is measurable but not perceived by the human ear. If anyone ever mentions comb filtering seriously…just walk away. It used to be a selling point of stereo salesmen to “audiophiles” back in the day. Truth is, although measurable-we just don’t have the ability to process it or hear it. If you have any interest, study the Haas effect. Phasing and time alignment is important and can create very un-cool effects. That’s why you won’t find mixed drivers in Revsound cabinets. The solution for time alignment is this: physically align the voice coils in the Y axis, or apply delay with a circuit. And ideally, the drivers would have identical sensitivity (same output volume). This is one reason why you never see mixed drivers in studio monitors. This cabinet rocks, and it rocks twice as much with another stacked on top.
