Fishman introduced the Loudbox Pro at this year's Summer NAMM show. Designed for professional use in a range of live-performance situations, the two-channel Loudbox Pro employs the same tri-amplification system that distinguished its sister Fishman Loudbox from other acoustic amplifiers. It also features high-frequency drivers identical to those used in 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 a 12" low frequency driver with a dedicated 380 watt amplifier, a 6" cone Midrange driver with 160 watt amplifier, and three 1" neodymium soft-dome high-frequency drivers with a 60 watt amplifier to power them. For those wondering if it lives up to its name, the Loudbox Pro produces 122dB SPL @ 1 meter.
Channel 1 of Loudbox Pro's 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.
