Product Description

Add the Laney IRT-X Ironheart to your guitar set-up and experience the best guitar sound of your playing days! The IRT-X’s Electro/Mechanical Reactive Linking (ERL) offers you tonal options previously unavailable for YOUR tone.

Simply connect the IRT-X to your amp’s output section before the speaker, and it mimics the electronic and mechanical interaction between them at FULL RANGE! This means you get more punch, power, dynamics, highs, lows, clarity and definition. The Laney IRT-X is not an extension cabinet – it’s a 200-watt RMS powered EXPANSION cabinet!

The key is – Electro- Mechanical Reactive Linking (ERL)
Unlike an extension cabinet – which sits after your output section, the IRT-X sits between your amps output section and your amps speaker and cleverly mimics the response characteristics of your on-board speaker.

Unlike most guitar speakers, which are commonly, rolled off above 4Khz the IRT-X houses a high quality flat response 8 inch Driver and a 1 inch Compression Driver. As soon as you connect the IRT-X, YOUR guitar tone has the capability for far more highs and lows, which means more tone!

Used in its most straightforward application the IRT-X gives you more of your tone! And since it’s your tone what better than to use it as your own personal guitar monitor on stage – every gigging musician has run into problems hearing themselves on stage.

Your tone on stage
The IRT-X gives YOU the solution to hearing YOUR own tone on stage. Better tone that you can hear – it’s a win-win situation!

The best signal path
Guitar players love effects but sometimes they can get in the way of your tone – the best tone is the simplest tone.

Plug your effects into the IRT-X and you get all the benefit of your unadulterated guitar tone – with effects only in the IRT-X giving you a Wet/Dry set up.

When more really does mean more
The IRT-X can be scaled up to fit even the biggest rigs, with 2 IRT-X’s you can run true W/D/W rigs with amazing sonic implications. The IRT-X has a super compact footprint which means you can have a massive sound on even the smallest stage

Onstage Mic-ing
The IRT-X comes equipped with an XLR DI out which can be sent directly to the PA and provides either a completely dry signal, or can be cabinet emulated – with or without FX! Emulation options include Dry, 1×12 or 4×12, so there is no need to use a mic and stand, which on a tight stage is great news. The on-board DI also means you get the same great tone night after night without relying on mic placements!

DSP Modeling setup?
The use of hi tech modeling setups requires some specific considerations when it comes to amplification. The IRT-X is ideally suited to pairing with a modeling processor or DSP based DAW package as the IRT-X has a completely flat, full range frequency response. Meaning your carefully modeled signal path in not re-EQ’d during the amplification process.

Product Review

Just bought 2 of these to run a WET DRY WET set up with my Marshall JCM2000 TSL602 Combo. I'm using a Rocktron Xpression multi effects unit in the effects loop of the IRTX in stereo and the delays and verbs sound soooooooooooo much better in the IRTX's loop than in the Marshall's loop. The low end is so much thicker and the high's are just flat out sweeter. Having the Marshall in the Middle dry really lets it shine with no effects in the loop. Ive been checking out Wet Dry Wet set ups on you tube but I had no idea it would make this much of a difference to my sound (FOR THE BETTER). I'll never go back to a mono rig. Thanks, AMS, for the great payment plan.

Sorry, not what I hoped for

Product Review

I bought this expansion speaker hoping to be able to hear myself playing with a very loud band. I have an Engl Fireball 100 through a Blackstar 2x12 cab with Veteran 30s, and standing right in front of it I hardly hear myself, although everyone else in the band hears me just fine. I put this Laney speaker in front of me tilting up as a monitor, and it sounds terrible. I don't know what they mean by bass and treble augmenting your tone, because to my ears all it does is make the sound shrill and nasty. It's all treble, but even turning that down all the way didn't help the sound quality. Sure, I can hear myself, but it ain't pretty. I tried different settings thinking I'm missing something, but the options seem limited. Just bass & treble--no mids, which it needs in my opinion. If you play through a high-end amp, do yourself a favor and avoid this purchase. Get a real monitor or a mini 1x12 cab.

Sound and tone that I never thought was possible

Product Review

This gives me a totally new dimension to my sound. People ask me all the time how am I getting such a big controlled sound... They have a hard time understanding at first, but once they do, I definitely see the light go on!!!!

Product Review

After reading reviews and seeing a video online I decided to buy this. I first tried this with my Marshall set up (an old JCM 800 modified)..the minute I turned on this cab I was BLOWN away!! I took the already good tone that I have known for years with my rig and made it even better!! More singing highs, more punch and low end as well... I also tried this with my Fender twin reverb and was amazed by the crispness with everything I played!! GREAT piece of gear!!!
