With 250 watt, 2x12" drivers and a 1" Tweeter, everything about BC212 oozes rock'n'roll and the tones from the Eminence drivers are strong, punchy and bold.
This cabinet combines brawn with
brains via its unique vertical stacking concept and a handling
weight of only 20 kilos!

We do not believe in conventions or rules. Sure, you adhere to the rules to a certain point - but then you break them! That thought is what lies behind our unique vertical stacking concept that frees up space on the stage, takes weight off your back and most importantly, lets you hear every detail of your playing without sacrificing low-end punch.
The Tolex covered BC cabs come in 3 models: 4x10", 2x10" or 2x12", and you can mix and match as well as stack them both vertically and horizontally as you see fit.
If you have a crew of roadies to handle your gear, weight is not a concern of course, but if you have to handle your own rig after a long gig, you know that a 130 lbs. 8x10" cab can suddenly transform itself from a source of sound to Mission Impossible...
Enter the BC cabs. They pack some serious power, but that does not translate into serious weight! In fact, you'll find it a breeze to load and unload the van when you're gigging with our range of BC bass cabs.
We had a bunch of tough choices to make when we started designing bass cabs, but one thing was a no-brainer: who we wanted to design our drivers and tweeters.
Eminence is the authorithy when it comes to that, and after a few test designs, we were even more convinced they had what it takes to produce music gear to TC standard. The sound they deliver is tight, focused, powerful and very musical so we could not be happier.
Vertical Stacking Explained
Vertical Stacking... It may sound like a term that was developed by our sales and marketing departments, but in reality Vertical Stacking was born in our bass development department. The concept emerged from years and years of bass playing. Yep, that's right! The guys developing TC bass gear are actually bass players themselves, and they know what it's like out there in the real world of bass.
If you ever play gigs at private parties or small to mid-sized venues, you probably decided to only bring one bass cab - typically one with a 4x10" speaker configuration.
If you place a 4 x10" cab on the floor the sound waves will bounce off the floor. While this is great for getting that fat low-end impact, the downside is that you can't hear the details of your playing. (Well, your knees can, but not your ears.)
One solution is to place the cab on a chair, a rack case or similar. Now you can hear the mid and high frequencies much better, but the downside is lack of low-end presence. Since you elevated the cab, you lose the early reflections bouncing off the floor.
In other words, no matter what you do, using only one 4 x 10" cab means a compromise of sound quality.
As long as you use TC cabinets, most of our amp can actually handle 3 cabs simultaneously.
Obviously, it would become a very tall stack if you stacked 3 2x10" or 2x12" cabs vertically, in fact you may not be able to reach the amp...
But don't worry, due to the extra cab, it actually makes sense to stack them in the traditional, horizontal way if you hook up three cabs.
The solution to the problem is our unique Vertical Stacking concept. There is nothing wrong with using 4 10" speakers. In most situations, that is more than enough - the problem is that all 4 speakers are fitted inside a square box in a 2x2 configuration.
Our answer is a 4x1 speaker configuration using either two 2x10", 2x10"/2x12" or two 2x12" cabs. Whether you want 10 or 12" speakers or a combination, the point is that you stack the speakers vertically.
The early reflections add punch and low-end to your sound, but at the same time you can hear every detail thanks to the fact that the top speaker is aligned with your ears.
No More Compromises. Issue Solved!
If weight and space is less of a concern, you can always go for the classic configuration of 8x10" cabs. Obviously, this solution will also give you all the benefits of vertical stacking using smaller cabs.
As my grandma used to say — she already slapped when Roosevelt was President — you can estimate the output power of a good bass cabinet by the size of its bass reflex ports. I guess grandma would have been happy with the BC210: you can almost fit a handball inside the ports!Check out the full review by Audiofanzine
