Andy Hunt of Matrix Amplification has released the GT1000FX 2U, which is a lightweight, 2U format stereo rack mount power amplifier designed specifically for use by guitarists who need a power amplifier in the studio that can also handle the rigours of live and touring use. The GT1000FX is designed with larger 80mm fans which operate much more quietly than our 1U model, perfect for studio applications where the only thing you want recording is the sound of your instrument and not the amp!
Whilst still delivering the same flat response as the GT800FX, the GT1000FX has been modified to respond even more like a valve power amplifier, giving a “looser” feel and a more open sound that we genuinely believe to be the closest a solid state amp has come to valves!
We’ve not just improved the sound either but also managed to cram another 200 Watts under the hood. That’s 1000 watts in bridged mode at 8ohms and a mammoth 650W at 16 ohms! Even at 2U, the weight is a still just 4.1kg!
The new 80mm dual speed fan ensures that the amplifier stays cool with even all that power, under the most demanding conditions. Neutrik combi 1/4 inch/XLR inputs and combi 1/4inch/Speakon outputs give you maximum flexibilty in how you connect the GT1000FX. We’ve also added a dedicated output for bridged mode, so no special cables are necessary to deliver the full mono power of the amplifier into any impedance of 8 ohms or over. The GT1000FX still has the same ability to handle all impedances 4 ohms and over including mis-matched loads giving you the widest choice when using your favourite cabs and speakers. Running a 2×12 cab with an 8 ohm and 16 ohm speaker in mono or running a 4 ohm cab on one side and a 16 ohm cab on the other in stereo mode is no problem for the GT1000FX!
The amplifier features indicators for protection, bridged-mode and signal lights showing the output signal strength.
The Matrix GT1000FX takes the Matrix line of products to a whole new level, way beyond 11.
