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.

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.
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 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.
