Its EQ section is flush with four bands with two selectable frequencies for each knob. The input section has a Hi/Lo switch for active or passive basses, while the output has a mute switch. Other features include an aux input, a Pre/Post Balanced DI Output, a Parallel EFX loop, convection cooling and a Neutrik Speakon combi-connector. The whole unit weighs in at six pounds.
