HeadRush FRFR-108 Powered Cabinet Overview

Level up your live performance with this high-powered cab

As if 2019 wasn’t already treating guitarists pretty well, HeadRush just added to the proceedings. The HeadRush FRFR-108 is a 2000W Full-Range Flat-Response Powered Guitar Cabinet, which is the stuff of dreams for live guitarists. If you’ve got a modelling processor such as HeadRush’s own Pedalboard and Gigboard – then this is the perfect partner. The flat-response of the FRFR-108 translates your sound with the utmost transparency. It doesn’t influence the immaculate tones produced by your amp and FX processors.

Monitoring perfected

With a mighty 2000-Watts at your beck and call, the HeadRush FRFR-108 can handle any and every situation. A specially-voiced 8-inch woofer pairs perfectly with a high-frequency driver. The result is a balanced output with heaps of power. Tech specs include a generous 52Hz to 22kHz frequency range for optimising both guitar and bass response. A maximum SPL of 129dB (peak / 126dB continuous) provides outstanding tonal clarity. The complexity of your tonal textures and the subtle nuances of your playing style translate beautifully.

Gigging made easy

Gig-ready features include a contour EQ switch to prevent your tone from becoming an incomprehensible dirge. Thanks to the welcome inclusion of the ground-lift switch, noise is eliminated in venues with grounding issues. A pair of XLR/TRS 1/-4-inch combo inputs boast independent volume controls, as well as a clip indicator so that you don’t start creating unwanted noise. The XLR output enables you to send a balanced mix to any front of house system or even linking FRFR-108 cabinets for imperious tonal power!

Lightweight powerhouse

Practical portability is at the heart of the FRFR-108 design. Delightfully compact in form, the FRFR-108 weighs in at a mere 20lbs. For reference, that is roughly the same weight as a Dachshund, though the FRFR-108 is far more useful in a gigging/recording situation. The trapezoidal-shaped cab and pole-mount socket maximise your placement options. Not only that but the perforated steel grille protects the drivers from unwanted damage. This is a must for anyone performing in front of exuberant gig goers.

Conclusions

The HeadRush FRFR-108 Powered Guitar Cabinet is a must-have (can’t overstate this enough) for anyone who wants to gig with their amp or FX modelling processor and utilise its features in all its tonally resplendent glory. Easy to transport, mightily powerful, won’t tarnish your tone, and is as rugged as a tank. What more could you want?
