Friedman introduces new combo-style ASC-12 stage monitor

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

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

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. At the heart of the ASC-12 is a robust 500w Bi-Amp Class-G amplifier that is anything but digital.
