Hartke has released the Kilo Bass Amplifier, a new head unit that delivers 1,000 watts via bridged mono or 500 watts per side in stereo or dual mono. Housed in a 3U rackspace chassis, the amp features a tube preamp and variable Hartke Bass Attack Overdrive and Shape Control in addition to an onboard compressor. It also has a slew of EQing options, including a 10-band graphic EQ, Bass and Treble shelving, mid-peak EQ controls, and Deep and Brite switches.
The Kilo has an XLR balanced direct output with level control and routing options on the front of the amp, while a ground lift for the DI is on the back. The select button allows you to send direct from input, compressor, EQ, or effects. Two footswitch jacks are included: one for the mute and the other to control the Shape and Overdrive.
The new Hartke Kilo will be available soon, for around $1,000.
