Mesa Boogie Subway D-800: Mesa's First Lightweight Bass Amplifier
The American amp builders from Mesa Boogie have introduced their first 800W lightweight class-D bass guitar amplifier. With this featherweight powerhouse, which they named the Mesa Boogie Subway D-800, they cater to bass players who are looking for a bass amp head that's easy to transport, but remarkably potent nonetheless.
The Mesa Boogie Subway D-800: lightweight but potent
Thanks to its aluminium housing, the Mesa Boogie Subway D-800 bass amplifier head weighs only 5.5 lbs, but it's capable of overflowing large stages with powerful bass tones. It delivers 800 watts at 2 or 4 ohms, and 400 watts at 8 ohms. This transistor amplifier features proprietary voicing control, from flat to a vintage sound characteristics, as well as an active four-band equalizer and a deep switch for those who feel the deep Mesa Boogie bass doesn't offer the desired bottom end.
The Subway D-800 measures only 3 1/8 x 10 5/8 x 11 1/4 inches (794 x 270 x 285 mm, HxWxD), is equipped with an extra aux input and a headphone output, and is fan-cooled. To channel this amp head's tremendous power, Mesa Engineering has designed two cabinets that are certainly up to the task: a 1x12" and a 1x15" Subway Ultra Light Bass Cabinet. Naturally, their custom Subway speakers boast a neodymium magnet. The cabinets are made of Italian poplar and built in true Mesa style, which means they're incredibly durable and free of annoying vibrations.
