You can now order your Rack Mount or Tardis Monique with a 500 or 700 watt Bass Amplifier included.
The power rating of both these amplifiers have to be taken seriously. Both deliver true rated Bass power. If your cabinet can not handle the power rated, please do not order these amplifiers.
The two Combo/Speakons (accept both 1/4" and Speakon cables) on the back of the Monique are in parallel. The optimum impedance is 4 ohms. This means that a couple of 8 ohm cabinets can be connected up to match 4 ohms. It also means you are ready if you have a single 4 ohm cabinet that can handle the rated power.
Both the 500 and 700 watt amplifier deliver clean musical power across the audio spectrum with awesome clarity. Specifications are good enough to make either amplifier a pristine Mastering Monitor. Both are extremely fast with as close to zero latency as anything we have ever heard.
No feature of Monique has been left out to make these amplified versions of Monique. That is why you see a separate power switch for both Monique and the amplifier. You will probably use Monique and the amplifier together most of the time, but the choice is yours. You can use Monique by itself, and the amplifier by itself. Whatever you choose.
In addition to the two speaker outputs, Monique has Line Level output (1/4" Single Ended TRS) and a separate XLR balanced DI output that is driven by a beautiful Cinemag transformer. Both the Line Level and the Balanced Output have their own separate level controls. The Line Level control adjusts amplifier volume.
Monique Amplifiers have an internal fan that is switch-able on the back. As long as the back panel is left open for ventilation, you should be able to run full blast in any environment. A "Clipping Detection" LED has been added (between the Line Level and Balanced Level knobs) for those times when you find yourself pushing the amplifier too hard. It will light up to tell you you have to back off on your input level.
All the tone and all the playing characteristics of the best all-tube Bass pre-amplifier ever made, but now in an amplifier.
