HeadRush has just announced the latest incarnation of its Full Range Flat Response speaker range, the new 2000-Watt FRFR-108. This unit is aimed at players that want to use amp modelling technology live.
Last year’s NAMM Show saw the release of the Headrush FRFR-112, a high powered speaker aimed at players wanting to amplify products like Line 6’s Helix and similar modelling products like the Kemper Profiler Head Amp in a live stage environment.
In the last few years, modelling amps have become a far more viable solution for many guitarists playing live sick of the hassle, weight and cost of using large amps.
This year Headrush has announced its new FRFR-108 powered speaker, a smaller and lighter unit. It comes in at around 9kg/20lbs and uses an 8″ two-way speaker rated at 2000 Watts.
The back panel has two XLR/TRS 1/4-inch combo inputs, each with its own independent volume control and a clip indicator light to help keep your signal in check. It should be easy to set up with any modelling hardware.
The FRFR-108 also has a ground-lift switch and XLR out, so is designed to be easy to use and integrate into most gigging scenarios. You can use that XLR output to send your signal to a FOH (Front Of House) desk. HeadRush has also included a handy Contour EQ switch so that you can get the FRFR-108 to cut through easily in a live environment and avoid any muddy-sounding stage mixes.
You can also use the tilt-back cabinet design to get a better spread of sound on stage or pole mount the FRFR-108. I think this new FRFR speaker covers most bases for gigging musicians and the price is less than most regular non-powered guitar cabs!
