Amps

The Stealth™ Power Amplifier is based on analog class A/B amplifier design for excellent sonic and saturated clipping performance, not found with Class D power amplifiers. The Stealth can be used for high SPL gigs and professional stage use. It is powered from an external 19-volt DC switch-mode power adaptor like that used with a laptop, but will deliver a true 180 watts RMS continuous output power into an 8-ohm speaker cabinet and greater than 120 volts bridged output voltage swing. 

The Stealth can also be used as a stereo 2x80 watt amplifier at 4 ohms and can power a single 4 x 12 cabinet with incredible SPL volume level output or will power two cabinets in a true stereo rig. The amp weighs in at only 1.2 pounds at a size of package size of 9” long, 4” wide, and 2” tall, adding new meaning to light weight guitar systems. An internal “power on/off” output control circuit provides pop free operation for turn on and turn off.  The Stealth Power Amplifier is based on ISP Technologies new patent pending “Power Factor” and “Dynamic Adaptive Amplifier Technology.” Retail price: $399.00.

The Glow Totem Set is a new, all-in-one mobile truss setup that packs down to less than half the size of standard square truss. Consisting of four single trussing tubes, a base plate, a top plate, and a lycra cover, the Glow Totem Set includes everything needed to create a clean, polished look. When the tubes are assembled and covered with the lycra truss cover, there’s no cross hatching – only a smooth, modern uplighting glow. Add a battery powered ADJ Jelly or Mega GO par to uplight without the hassle of cords.

Each totem takes only a few minutes to assemble, but holds strong all night. Additionally, the trussing will take up less than half the space of a square truss in the same height, which means DJs can easily pack twice as much trussing, instantly expanding their setup possibilities.

 The Glow Totem Set includes the following: 4 x F31 Single tubes, 1 base plate, 1 top plate, 1 lycra truss cover (sock). The F31 single tubes are available in a variety of heights and the base and top plates also come in different sizes, allowing for a wide range of selection. The new Glow Totem set is flexible enough to fit any DJ’s setup and take their look to the next level.
