BX-220H / BX-2115


Crate's new BX-220H/BX-2115 ThunderBass amplifiers are feature-packed, professional-strength power-
houses which can deliver incredible bass sounds. Rugged construction, reliable American craftsmanship and
solid state electronics add up to create one very roadworthy, stage-ready piece of gear.
The BX-220H packs solid performance into a compact head unit, contained in a rugged Tolex
cabinet. Its side-mounted handle and heavy-duty rubber feet on two sides (not just the bottom, but also on
the end you set it down on in real life) increase its value to those musicians who are always "on the go." The
BX-2115 combines the same great bass amp with an equally outstanding 15" ThunderBass American-made
transducer for a small but hard-hitting combo amp suitable for the club, small hall or recording studio. An
optional JBL 15" bass transducer is also available (BX-2115L).
Both amplifiers will deliver 220 watts into 4 ohms, or 150 watts into 8 ohms. A listing of the features of
these amps is given below.
