Gene DellaSala interviews Shane Rich, Technical Director of RBH
Sound, about the new and improved T-2SE/R loudspeakers. These are
essentially a two-piece, modular version of the T-30LSE which allows
for a more manageable cabinet size for the low and high drivers. The dual
10-inch subwoofers can now be purchased separately as well and the
entire system is much easier to physically ship and manipulate into a
home theater or two-channel listening installation. The RBH Sound demo
was configured into an 11.2 surround configuration to match with
Yamaha's desired DSP settings. This included a pair of DSP Presence
channels in the front (61-SE/Rs) as well as a pair of DSP-driven height
Presence channels(also 61-SE/Rs) in the rear of the room. The center channel was a timbre-matched 661-SE/R loudspeaker.
The demo consisted of material from a myriad of sources, including King Kong and Sea Biscuit and DTS demo disc featuring Omar Hakim. We sat in on the demo and the amount of clean unadulterated bass that came through was amazing - in fact the Hilton received several complaints from two floors up
within minutes of the demo starting up for the first time! I don't know
about anyone else, but that's pretty much a good starting point in my
eyes for any demo experience. This turned out to be quite an impressive demo giving proof that RBH Sound continues to produce reference quality loudspeakers.

IMO, the height really adds a nice sense of spaciousness for movies.
