Friedman Amps Launches ASC-12 500-Watt Powered Modeler/Profiler Monitor

Friedman Amplification has unveiled its new ASC-12 2-way 500-watt powered modeler/profiler monitor. From the company:

The Friedman ASM-12 took the industry by storm in 2016 and has quickly become the go-to active-stage monitor for players using modelers and profilers. The new ASC-12 offers the same features and sound as the ASM-12, but in a familiar combo-style cabinet.

The Friedman ASC-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 Helix Series and others. The ASC-12 delivers rich authentic tones, allowing you get the most out of these systems in live use and playback applications. And it looks just like a “familiar” speaker cabinet that would be used with a separate head.

The ASC-12 features a Celestion 12″ loudspeaker with a 2.5″ edge wound voice coil and a premium Celestion high frequency compression driver.
