Overview

500W active modeler/profiler monitor.

The Friedman ASM-12 powered monitor was designed and voiced for use with today's 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 12" loudspeaker with a 2.5" 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 of the ASM-12 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 U.S.A., 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.
