More punch, power, dynamics, highs, lows, clarity and definition for your guitar.

The IRT-X is not an extension cabinet “ its a 200W RMS powered extension cabinet. The key is “ Electro- Mechanical Reactive Linking (ERL).

Unlike an extension cabinet “ which sits after your output section, the IRT-X sits between your amp's output section and your amp's speaker and cleverly mimics the response characteristics of your onboard 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 its 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. For this reason, 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 setup.

When More Really Does Mean More
The IRT-X can be scaled up to fit even the biggest rigs. With two IRT-Xs, you can run true W/D/W rigs with amazing sonic implications. It's like Sonic 3-D! The IRT-X has a super compact footprint which means you can have a massive sound on even the smallest stage.

Onstage Miking
Miking 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, 1x12 or 4x12, so there is no need to use a mic and stand, which on a tight stage is great news. The onboard 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 high-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. This means your carefully modelled signal path in not re-EQd during the amplification process.

Comments about Laney IRT-X 200W RMS Powered Expansion Guitar Cabinet:

Wow! very nice versatile product.
So, you have your guitar sound and setup perfected. Great guitars, great amps (tube or solid state) and all your effects and pedals situated. You've spent years perfecting your guitar sound. You are otherwise completely happy with the sound of your setup. Along comes Laney with the cherry on the icing with these "flat response" beauties. ---- sounds like i work for Laney doesn't it? I don't though, but I' am a fan of Laney Tube Amps.

Let me tell you how i use these.
I have a Laney Lionheart 20w class A pumping two 2x12 Celestion cabs. Head plugs to a 4 ohm hotplate attenuation and out to my cabs. I have 2 of the IRT-X's Left /Right fed by an available cabinet out from Laney Head. My delay and reverb go through one of IRT-x effects Loop (send / return). This gives me a Wet Dry Wet setup. It really does open up new sounds given the flat freq response from the IRT's. The result is a more full sound. Great product by Laney. Also, I plug my acoustic amp into direct in (works great)! Haven't tried playing backing tracks through it yet. Has limitless connection options. Defiantly a keeper.

    Comments about Laney IRT-X 200W RMS Powered Expansion Guitar Cabinet:

    Wow, this is perfect for two things:
    1. using with my Fractal and my pod pro for a powered speaker. plenty of juice and sound is great.
    2. using with my old Champ I now have a vintage amp that I can use without altering but with this added gets me a louder speaker, a direct out with speaker sim, and an effects loop. this is the biggest deal for me as the Strymon sounds better in the loop than in front and now I have a loop on my Champ!
    Killer feature!
