OVERVIEW

500W active modeler/profiler monitor.

The Friedman ASM-12 powered monitor was designed and voiced for use with today' guitar amp modelers and profilers including Fractal Audio Axe-Fx, Kemper Profiler, Line 6 HD Series and others. The ASM-12 delivers rich authentic tones, allowing you get the most out of these systems in live use and playback applications

The ASM-12 features a Celestion 12³ loudspeaker with a 2.5³ edge wound voce coil and a premium Celestion high frequency compression driver. At the heart of the ASM-12 is a robust 500w Bi-Amp Class-G amplifier that is anything but digital. This proprietary amplifier design delivers rich, full tone and a wide frequency response making it suited for backline, stage monitoring or even as your main PA speaker.

Key features include: Bi-Amp power module with high efficiency Class G low frequency amplification with a high current output stage and custom signal processing; clip/limit, thermal, and short circuit protection; line level output for linking multiple speakers; optimized acoustic designs using a PETP film compression driver diaphragm; heat vented low frequency drivers; and a hand crafted in the USA, sturdy Baltic birch construction. Controls include level knob, low-cut filter switch, ground lift and power switches. The ASM-12 was designed to operate on the floor as a stage monitor or to be pole mounted on a 1 1/2³ diameter speaker stand.

The Friedman ASM-12 powered loudspeaker was designed using advanced acoustic and audio techniques with premium components, comprehensive protection circuitry, and robust construction to provide years of consistent, reliable performance.

    Comments about Friedman ASM-12 Active Amp Modeler/Profiler Monitor:

    Been playing for 47 years and the bottom line is I've used some really nice FRFR powered speakers for guitar in the past, and these sound the best to my old ears. They are full sounding, with an "amp in the room" feel either wedged on the floor or up on a pole. Plenty of power for small to medium gigs, and the only thing I can say about them in a negative way is that they are indeed heavy like a well-made powered speaker should be. Try one, or better yet a pair and I bet you love um!!!
