Iron Heart IRT-X Powered Guitar Expansion Cab
The key is - Electro- Mechanical Reactive Linking (ERL).
Unlike an extension cabinet - which sits after your output section, the IRT-X sits BETWEEN your amps output section and your amps speaker and cleverly mimics the response characteristics of your on-board speaker.
Unlike most guitar speakers, which are commonly, rolled off above 4Khz the IRT-X houses a high quality flat response 8" Driver and a 1"Compression Driver. As soon as you connect the IRT-X, YOUR guitar tone has the capability for far more highs and lows, which means more tone!
Used in its most straightforward application the IRT-X gives you more of YOUR tone! And since it's YOUR tone what better than to use it as your own personal guitar monitor on stage - every gigging musician has run into problems hearing themselves on stage.
YOUR TONE ON STAGE
The IRT-X gives YOU the solution to hearing YOUR own tone on stage. Better tone that you can hear - it's a win-win situation! But for the player who wants a little more - the IRT-X has a few tricks up its sleeve.
THE BEST SIGNAL PATH
Guitar players love effects but sometimes they can get in the way of your tone - the best tone is the simplest tone. The IRT-X houses a stereo FX loop!
Plug your effects into the IRT-X and you get all the benefit of your unadulterated guitar tone - with effects only in the IRT-X giving you a Wet/Dry set up.
WHEN MORE REALLY DOES MEAN MORE
The IRT-X can be scaled up to fit even the biggest rigs, with 2 IRT-X's you can run true W/D/W rigs with amazing sonic implications.
IT'S LIKE SONIC 3D!
The IRT-X has a super compact footprint which means you can have a massive sound on even the smallest stage
Mic-ing the IRT-X is simple! The IRT-X comes equipped with an XLR DI out. Which can be sent directly to the PA and provides either a completely dry signal, or can be cabinet emulated - with or without FX!
Emulation options include Dry, 1×12 or 4×12, so there is no need to use a mic & stand, which on a tight stage is great news.
The on-board DI also means you get the same great tone night after night, venue after venue - no more relying on mic placements!
DSP MODELLING SETUP-
The use of hi tech modelling setups requires some specific considerations when it comes to amplification.
The IRT-X is ideally suited to pairing with a modelling processor or DSP based DAW package as the IRT-X has a completely flat, full range frequency response.
Meaning your carefully modelled signal path in not re-EQ'd during the amplification process.
