What does Acoustic Array mean?
The focal point of this light-weight, compact combo is a speaker system engineered for acoustic instrument reproduction that is based upon our revolutionary Bass Array® format from our bass guitar cabinet designs. The AA-MINI speaker system features a specialized 8” woofer in a ported chamber along with the performance and pattern control of a proprietary line array column, which is mounted forward of the woofer in the center of the speaker baffle. This line array column utilizes 4 custom designed 1.5” neodymium soft dome drivers. The use and placement of the line array provides exceptional clarity and ultra-smooth response, along with broad dispersion and projection that line array principals provide. The custom 8” woofer delivers tight, punch and roundness for the lows and lower mids, while the upper mids and high frequencies are produced by the line array and are clear, natural and authentic to the acoustic instrument.
The blend of this innovative speaker system along with our preamp and amplifier platform delivers an acoustic amp like no other available. At 21 lbs, Acoustic Array® MINI is a versatile package ideal for a variety of instruments and venues.

PREAMP –— Dedicated Mic and Instrument Channels.
INST. INPUT — 5Meg ohm input impedance.
CHANNEL VOLUME – Voiced to provide natural, pristine, transparent reproduction of the instrument.
INPUT PHASE SWITCH – reverses the polarity of the instrument input to help control potential feedback.
CONTOUR — continuously variable control of a pre-shaped curve that boosts lows and highs while simultaneously cutting Mids. The slope is fairly gentle which keeps the tone shaping very musical. This curve covers a wide range of EQ and offers a quick and simple starting point for EQ adjustments.
ACTIVE EQUALIZATION – The AA-MINI’s Instrument channel contains an active 3 band equalizer with a sweepable parametric mid-range frequency control.
Bass +/- 15dB boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 75Hz
Mid +/- 15dB boost/cut of the variable mid frequency selected
Freq. Variable mid frequency from 200Hz- 5kHz
Treble +/- 15dB boost/cut shelving curve with a corner frequency of 7.5kHz
Digital Effect — The Mic channel has its own REVERB level control and the Instrument channel offers both REVERB and CHORUS controls that provide the user with the most flexibility. The parameters of each effect are variable at the Master Section with the Reverb Time and Chorus Rate controls.
POWER AMP — The Acoustic Array® MINI uses a state of the art, Class D power amplifier design and a high frequency auto-sensing universal switch-mode power supply (SMPS) to achieve unprecedented high performance in a lightweight package. For global use, there are no Voltage Switches to change or jumpers to move. This SMPS senses the line voltage from 100-240 Volts and automatically configures itself.
