The new Fishman Loudbox Pro promises to redefine the standard of excellence for acoustic instrument amplification
Like its award-winning predecessor, the new Fishman Loudbox Pro promises to redefine the standard of excellence for acoustic instrument amplification in terms of sound quality, tonal control, dynamics, power and impact.
Designed for professional use in a range of live-performance situations, the two-channel Loudbox Pro employs the same innovative tri-amplification system that distinguished its sister Fishman Loudbox™ from other acoustic amplifiers. It also features high-frequency drivers identical to those used in high-quality studio-mastering monitors.
Delivering more than twice the crystal-clear sound and ample headroom of the original Loudbox, the Loudbox Pro produces 600 Watts RMS (cumulative) of pure power. The tri-amped system with active crossover features 12" low frequency driver with a dedicated 380W amplifier, a 6" cone Midrange driver with 160W amplifier, and a tri-amped tweeter array with a 60W amplifier to power them. For those wondering if it lives up to its name, the Loudbox Pro produces 122dB SPL @ 1 meter!
"The Loudbox Pro is the latest example of Fishman's total commitment to superb acoustic reproduction. Beyond its staggering power, the Loudbox Pro also provides the truly discriminating acoustic player with the ultimate in headroom and dynamics," said Larry Fishman, President and Founder of Fishman Transducers.
Channel 1 of Loudbox Pro's extensive control section includes: shelving bass and treble, resonant-style midrange and brilliance, phase switch and notch filter for feedback control, and a mute switch. Channel 2, which functions as an instrument or microphone channel, provides 48-Volt phantom power; shelving bass and treble; resonant-style midrange and brilliance; a phase switch and notch filter for feedback control, and mute switch. A third channel provides an auxiliary stereo input with level control.
Other features include five types of digital reverb, two effects loops, a balanced XLR DI output, and a unique adjustable kickstand that tilts back 40, 50, 60, and 70 degrees.
