Matrix Amplification Release The Q12a Active Monitor
Andy Hunt of Matrix Amplification, is proud
to release the Q12a active full range flat response
Designed for those guitarists wanting a more
traditional looking cabinet as part of their backline the Q12
series combines high build quality, light weight and exceptional
portability in a 1x12 style guitar cab whilst providing a
transparent sound, allowing guitar players who need a FRFR system
to reproduce on stage the sounds created on studio monitors and
headphones at home, without colouration from the speaker.
Utilising the same full range coaxial driver used in
our popular CFR12 wedge, the Q12 gives a wide field of sound, with
plenty of bottom end oomphf, usually only found in bigger cabs, all
coupled with great power handling at 260 Watts RMS with a rating of
The power for the Q12a is provided by Matrix's highly
respected GM50 mono-bloc module, already proven and used by
professional cab builders and DIY buffs alike. Delivering
plenty of high quality class A/B power with the same voicing as our
flagship GT1000 amp ensures an uncoloured valve like feel with
enough power to handle the loudest of on stage situations.
When the GM50 module is switched off you are able to
run the cab in passive mode from an external amp. The speaker link
works as normal allowing the daisy chaining of cabs together. In
active mode the speaker input must be disconnected and the speaker
link allows power from the GM50 to drive the daisy chained cab to a
minimum 4 ohms load. Input to the GM50 module is via a combi XLR
1/4 inch input. To give the module protection during transport
we've recessed the GM50 into the cab ensuring no connectors or the
volume pot can be easily damaged.
The Q12a's are shipping now, priced at $1089* in the
