Subsequently, if you then turn the gain on the rcbm up to the 50% mark, then the gain is running at 25%, correct? Is this the correct thinking on this? I am also trying to figure out a recently purchased RCBM-100.
jaxbrad, in a sense, sort-of . You will want to set the gain on the Tube, literally at the Tube to the highest point, meaning where there is no distortion and it sounds good to you. Now think of the RBCM as a volume knob of sorts, it lets you adjust down from there, as in the case you get a song or track where the volume is louder from on to the next, then you can turn the Tube down, and when a song somes on that is not at the same volume, you can turn the knob, and efffectively raise the Tube's output. Keep in mind, the RBCM will not go beyond the initial setting on the Tube. So, using a random set of numbers to make this easy to understand, look at it like this; let's say you set the gain on the Tube (literally, the gain on the Tube) to 85, this sounds good to you, right? Then, a track comes on where the bass is too much, you can lower at the volume at the RBCM, to any number below that. Then, when you need to, you can turn the knob to back, all the way to the original 85, because the RBCM will not go beyond the Tube's intial setting of 85, it will only go up to that point. This must be hard to follow, so if you still don't understand post back or use the PM.
