If you use amp modeling, the Line 6 PowerCab 112 Plus was made for you. This active guitar speaker's flat frequency response and generous headroom preserve every detail of your amplifier simulations. Or you can choose from six different built-in speaker emulations for that familiar "amp-in-a-room" vibe. Have a favorite third-party impulse response? No problem. The PowerCab 112 Plus accommodates up to 128 recallable, customizable user presets. Beyond that, an integrated 250-watt power amp delivers enough volume for most live situations, and its microphone-emulated output makes running straight into the PA a breeze. Line 6 knows a thing or two about amp modeling, and it shows with the PowerCab 112 Plus.
The Line 6 PowerCab 112 Plus was built with amp modelers in mind. It can supply both a traditional guitar cabinet tone or a flat response. In Flat mode, the PowerCab 112 Plus delivers a full-range frequency response from 70Hz to 20kHz with a healthy amount of headroom. With this setting, there are no surprises — what goes in is what comes out. Your presets will sound exactly like they're supposed to. Beyond that, you also get six realistic guitar speaker models. These simulations not only produce the sound of a traditional guitar cab, but also the feel. No matter what you're playing — rock, country, blues, jazz, metal — the PowerCab 112 Plus is a great match for any amp modeler.
While the PowerCab 112 Plus includes plenty of top-shelf speaker models, there are a lot of great-sounding third-party options out there. Don't sweat it — with 128 user-loadable slots for impulse response processing, the PowerCab 112 gives you all the flexibility you'll need to achieve the sound you're aiming for. All presets are recallable, MIDI- and L6 LINK-controllable, and can be configured as any mode (Flat, Speaker Modeling, or IR). A backlit LCD display and illuminated knob make for easy editing, and there's a built-in USB jack if you need to dig deeper with your Mac or PC.
Even though the Line 6 PowerCab 112 Plus weighs a mere 36 pounds, it still makes a worthy stage companion. It's loaded with a custom coaxial 12" guitar speaker and a 1" compression driver, and its 250-watt amplifier delivers an impressive 125dB peak SPL. And for even more flexibility, its microphone-emulated XLR output allows for direct connection to a PA system. On top of that, foldout kickstands allow you to use the PowerCab 112 Plus for angled backline placement or as an angled floor monitor.
From the launch of their original POD to the company's industry-changing line of Spider amplifiers, not to mention their flagship Helix processors, Line 6 has been putting great guitar tone at guitarists' fingers for decades. The guitarists at Music Experience have been Line 6 fans since their kidney-bean-shaped POD days, and we're still quick to recommend their products to our customers. When it comes to innovative guitar technology, few brands can match Line 6. With great products like the PowerCab 112 Plus, it's easy to see why!
The Powercab® 112 Plus active guitar speaker system was specifically designed for use with professional modelers. If you are happy with your modeler’s onboard cabinet models and just want to hear the sound of your presets amplified, simply connect your modeler to Powercab 112 Plus, select Flat (FRFR) mode, and play. Switching to Speaker Modeling mode on the Powercab 112 Plus enables you to take advantage of 12 proprietary onboard speaker models—which are not the same as either cabinet models or impulse responses—for a more organic “amp-in-the-room” playing experience. Modeled speakers range from classics such as “Greenback” and “Blue Bell” to modern designs. Connect a pair of Powercab 112 Plus speaker systems to hear ping-pong delays, expansive reverbs, and spacious modulation effects in full stereo. Additional features include a rugged-yet-lightweight plywood cabinet with flip-out kickstands, a 2-inch LCD, 128 user preset locations, an XLR direct output, MIDI In/Out, AES/EBU and L6 LINK™ I/O, a multipurpose second input, and a USB audio interface. Third-party IRs may also be loaded and saved within presets.
