The innovative TC Electronic K-212 2x12" Bass Speaker Cabinet with 1" Tweeter is the ultimate gig-friendly cab for the working bassist.

A Resounding Roar
TC Electronic's K212 bass cabinet doesn't just look the part, it also sounds it. Behind the elegant tolex exterior you'll find two brilliant custom-made 12" drivers and a 1" ceramic tweeter that are sure to bring your tone to life with a quick and punchy response, crisp clarity and commanding low-end. Combine that with 8 Ohm impedance, 400W power handling and a weight of only 23 kg/50 lbs and you have a cab that's ready to rule every stage around the world!

  • Lightweight and portable design
  • High-quality custom drivers
  • Vintage-vibed look

Stack That Cab!
For you to be able to perform your best on stage you need impeccably clear sound, and that's exactly what our vertical stacking concept delivers. By stacking vertically, you retain your tone's natural low-end, while also being able to hear every single detail in your playing loud and clear. You can mix and match our different cabs to your heart's desire and find the exact combination of low-end rumble and high-end definition that speaks to you.

Minimum Weight, Maximum Tone
The designers at TC Electronic play bass too you know and they've had their share of days on the road in a tiny van, jam-packed with gear and sweaty band mates. One of the most exhausting parts of being on tour, is having to carry all of that heavy gear to and from the stage, day in and day out. With TC Electronic's new cabs, you get rocking tones in an ingenious lightweight design so you can focus entirely on keeping the groove instead of your next chiropractic appointment.

Designed to Impress
Everything about this cab oozes quality. Its sturdy plywood construction ensures extreme durability and a natural unaffected tone reproduction, while the ultra cool vintage-looking exterior is sure to turn heads. But the real beauty lies within. TC Electronic's hand-selected high-quality custom drivers, which have been developed with an unparalleled attention to sonic detail, offers both gorgeous sparkling high-end and massive thunderous low-end. This cab will blow the crowd away in every way possible.

Vertical Stacking Explained
Vertical Stacking... it may sound like a term that was developed by TC Electronic's sales and marketing departments, but in reality Vertical Stacking was born in their 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.

The Problem
If you ever play gigs at small to mid-sized venues or at private parties, you have probably decided to only bring one bass cab sometimes. Typically one with a 4x10" speaker configuration.

However, sound is very sentitive to direction and surface reflections... If you place a 4 x10" cab on the floor, sound waves will bounce off the floor, which is great for getting that fat low-end impact - but 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 now the downside is lack of low-end presence. Since you elevated the cab, you loose the early reflections boucning off the floor.

The Solution
The solution to the problem is TC Electronic's unique Vertical Stacking concept. There is nothing wrong with using four 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.

The 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.

Quite simply, you get the best from both 4x10" scenarios: The early reflections adding punch and low-end to your sound, but at at the same time, you can hear every detail thanks to the fact that the top speaker is aligned with your ears.

    Comments about Tc Electronic K-212 2X12" Bass Speaker Cabinet With 1" Tweeter:

    I PURCHASED 2 OF THESE CABS WHILE ALSO OWNING 2 TCE RS210'S AND A GK NEO 410. THESE CABS HAVE A BEAUTIFUL EXTERIOR WHICH REALLY DOESN'T SHOW UP WELL IN PICTURES. THERE IS NO TWEETER CONTROL BUT THE TWEETER ACTUALLY SOUNDS VERY NICE AND HELPS MAKE THE CAB SOUND MORE ARTICULATE WHILE ALSO SOUNDING DEEP. IN COMPARISON WITH THE RS 210'S, THE RS CABS SOUND VERY PUNCHY SMOOTH AND ARTICULATE WHILE THE K212'S ARE MORE ENGULFING AND CRISP. THE NEO 410 ON THE OTHER HAND SOUNDS MORE SCOOPED WITH BIG BASS AND GLASSY HIGHS. I HAVE USED THEM AT SEVERAL SHOWS WITH EITHER A TCE RH450 OR THE BH800 AND THESE CABS SOUND GREAT WITH THEM. I'M VERY HAPPY I PURCHASED THE K212'S.
