System is unreal love it
We’re excited to announce a new and extraordinary sound system has been born from the creators of the RC1.
RC Audio Systems Limited is proud to launch this new two box active speaker system. Able to significantly outperform many much larger pro-audio systems, we believe it will set a new benchmark in the industry, and it’s already creating quite a stir!
The system is now available for hire or purchase – click here to see our products page for more info.
2017 – ANOTHER GREAT YEAR FOR RC1 SOUND SYSTEM
2017 has been a fun year and climaxed on Friday 22 December with a friendly bass soundclash against an enormous Void rig of Incubus and Nexus XL.
The Void rig was provided by Neuron Pro Audio and consisted of a single stack of 4 Incubus Subs, 6 Nexus XL subs and 4 Hyperfolds totalling some 10,400 litres of bass cabinets driven by Powersoft amps including ten Powersoft K20.
We came in with a more modest stack of 16 RC1 bass speakers totalling just some 6800 litres driven by eight Crest Audio CA18 amps.
On mid/hi the Void rig were running their enormous Air Array speakers and we were running 3 pairs of RC1 mid/hi.
As the night went on the bass levels crept up and we were delighted to find that, despite us being dwarfed by the size of the Void rig, the RC1 came into its own and put up more than a good fight. The Void was an exceptional rig, but in the end was not even close to matching the RC1 for bassweight. Towards the end, as the difference between the rigs became so extreme the crowd were literally buzzing and shouting in support of the RC1, which was an amazing result!
There were plenty of other highlights in 2017.
In March we promoted our first night “RC1 in Session” in Bristol and it was a great success. We were pleased how many people came out and joined us for a night of incredible bassweight, and we intend to do more such events from time to time in the future.
In June/July we took an RC1 rig to Spain to power the main arena at Innovation in the Sun festival, which was great fun. It was the first time we’ve taken the RC1 overseas and we spent a very enjoyable week out there.
We got out onto the festival scene again, including our first year at Sequences Festival in Bristol, and we returned to power the Skreamizm tent again at Eastern Electrics which has been one of our favourite events for several years now.
We took to the roads again for Notting Hill Carnival in August, providing sound for Chocolate Nation which was the biggest Carnival Mas Band at Notting Hill this year. The RC1 really come into their own when they’re allowed to be loud, and so we turned a lot of heads at the carnival with many people saying we sounded great and had, by quite a big margin, the loudest and heaviest rig there. Another win for RC1!
Plus of course all our numerous other great shows.
During 2017 we also spent a lot of time in our workshop developing our new “RC Audio Systems” range of active speakers. The first products of this are now finally coming available for hire and purchase. We believe they will set a new benchmark for such products, so watch out world – the revolution is coming!
Bring on 2018 – it’s set to be quite a year!
RC1 IN SESSION
RC1 IN SESSION – What’s that? We’ve decided to organise our own events as a chance to showcase top bass music acts on a huge RC1 Sound System in carefully selected venues.
Why? – Too often events powered by RC1 are compromised by local noise restrictions. RC1 IN SESSION is an opportunity to enjoy the ultimate bass experience on an unrestricted RC1 system.
Will this be regular? – We’re kicking off our events in Bristol (25 March 17) and London (19 May 17) and have more dates to announce in the pipeline.
Where can I find out more? – See the Events section of the RC1 Facebook page for more info.
Event page for our first event in BRISTOL is Bristol RC1 IN SESSION 23/3/17
Event page for our first event in LONDON is London RC1 IN SESSION 19/5/17
On 4th November RC1 will be powering the main room for CTRLSOUND & GET DARKER celebrating 10 years of Get Darker. With the RC1 and the amazing lineup it promises to be one of the top dubstep events of the year! See event page.
RC1 Sound System will be powering one of the main stages at “Hospitality in the Park” on 24th September, and also at Tranz-mission festival on 25th September in Finsbury Park, London. Should be a great weekend! See event pages at Hospitality and Tranz-mission
RC1 Sound System has just started this new website for September 2016. Shame we’re not as good at making websites as we are at making speakers!
