Active Extension Tube

Properties

Hardly any other product stands for the name SCHOEPS like the active tube RC. The RC has been a true "original" in pro audio history since its introduction in the late 1970s. Its timeless elegance belongs to the standard on the concert stage more than ever.

Description

Active tubes are inserted between a capsule and a microphone amplifier of the modular Colette system. This makes it possible to place microphones unobtrusively in the orchestra without affecting the view.

At the head end of the RC there is a swivel, by means of which the capsule can be tilted between 0° and 120°. At the base of the RC there is a screw thread onto which the microphone amplifier (e.g. CMC 6) is screwed.

The RC is available in standard lengths of 350, 700 and 1200 mm and can be made in any custom length.

Product History

The RG 8 stand swivel has been made of modern, soft plastic for some years and can therefore hold the RC very stable in any position, without a need for a greater effort when screwing and untwisting and without the risk of breakage.

The amplifier housing at the head end of the RC has been made without knurls since 2017.

Variants & Options

An alternative standard version is the RC KC, which has a 50 cm cable instead of a screw thread in the outlet. This allows the microphone amplifier to be located apart, which can be advantageous in some application situations. 

In addition, numerous special versions of the RC with gooseneck elements, head swivel, base swivel or even LED elements can be ordered at an additional cost.
