Laney IRT-X Powered Expansion Cabinet

Take your set-up -- your guitar, your amp, your effects -- and add an IRT-X 200W RMS Expansion cab! The result? The best your guitar will ever sound! The IRT-X's Electro/Mechanical Reactive Linking (ERL) offers you tonal options previously unavailable for your tone.

The IRT-X connects to your amps output section -- before the speaker and mimics the electronic and mechanical interaction between them at full range. That means more punch, power, dynamics, more highs and lows, more clarity, more definition -- just more of your tone. The IRT-X is not an extension cabinet -- it's a 200W 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" Driver and a 1" 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.

Wet/Dry

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

Mic-ing the IRT-X is simple! 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, 112 or 412, so there is no need to use a mic & stand, which on a tight stage is great news. The on-board DI also means you get the same great tone night after night, venue after venue -- no more relying on mic placements.

DSP Modelling setup?

The use of hi tech modelling setups requires some specific considerations when it comes to amplification. The IRT-X is ideally suited to pairing with a modelling 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.

zZounds Expert Review
I am a sucker for throwback reissues and old-school tube combo amps. Old low-wattage amps can be awesome when you really open them up and drive 'em into the red. Awesome for the studio -- not so great for that stage-filling presence that a full stack brings to both your playing technique and your audience. For me and my playing style, stage volume is one of the most important parts of performing -- from dirty basements, to corner bars, to front and center at your favorite venue's stage. Plug your little combo into this IRT-X expansion cabinet, and you'll have 200 watts on tap -- enough to compete with your heavy-handed drummer and full-stack-equipped bandmates. This cab connects between your speaker output jack and the speaker itself and gets that little 5-watt combo to cut through. I like to be a master of routing when it comes to my rig, and in addition to getting you loud and clear, the Laney IRT-X has every bell and whistle for sending your signal. For those who rock an impressive pedalboard, you'll find that the wet/dry stereo configuration you can achieve when playing with two of these is the answer you've been waiting for. Keep your tube tone sacred and send your spacey effects through the effects loop on these cabinets, and you'll get full-range sound without cutting off the highs like your favorite vintage speaker would. This is just one stop along the way that your signal can make. You're also able to come out of the IRT-X cabinet directly to the mixing board, with a speaker emulation or your wet effects signal, or just a dry out. Need even more firepower? Really? Throw your favorite 8- or 16-ohm cab into the power amp section and you'll be rattling windows the next block over. Calling this an expansion speaker really sells this short; you'll find the Laney IRT-X cab is a great tool that'll open up a ton of possibilities for your gigging rig.
