Acoustic Image Clarus SL-2 608 1A plus+


Clarus SL 608 IA .


“The Clarus SL-2 is a two channel, 600W amp head. It is the same form factor as our current one channel Clarus SL and SL-R amp heads. It is designed to allow two independent channels, each with its own tone controls and filter control, to be mixed into a single output. It uses multipurpose Tip Ring Sleeve (TRS) inputs to allow either a mic or pickup to be connected. An internal circuit recognizes the signal type, mic or pickup, and connects the appropriate preamp front end. An XLR to TRS adapter is included.

Clarus SL 608 IA .

Acoustic Image has developed the Clarus SL-2 double bass amplifier to accept both microphone and pickup inputs and mix into a single output channel.

A great idea for bassists using a dual amplification system on their upright bass. Here’s the lowdown from Acoustic Image:


  • Features:
    • 1/4″ TRS inputs; mono cable is optimal for high-impedance pickup, TRS uses impedance and gain structure for mics (and phantom power)
    • Low Cut Filter (per channel): -12 dB/octave sweepable from 30-180 Hz
    • Balanced XLR DI Output with Ground Lift
    • PRE- or POST- switch for XLR output
    • AC Power On/Off switch with LED Indicator
    • 650-Watt (@4 ohms) “Digital” Power Amplifier — (650w @4 ohms, 350w @8 ohms – 2 ohms minimum load)
    • 2 External Speaker Outputs (Neutrik Speakon)
    • Detachable AC Input Connector with Built-in Fuse
    • Automatic Voltage Switching for universal AC Mains Operation (comes with USA Cable; to use in other countries, you can source an IEC-C13 AC Cable, also commonly used for computer power supplies.)


  • Lightweight- less than 2.5 lbs!
  • Durable Powder-coated Aluminum Enclosure
  • 7.4 x 7.2 x 2.1
  • Padded Carry Bag included


The preamp features the new, FLEX-Style four-channel equalizer, as follows:

  • Low: Shelving, ±12dB at 30Hz
  • Lo Mid: ±12dB at 250 Hz
  • Hi Mid: ±12dB at 1200 Hz
  • Treble: Shelving, ±15dB at 10 kHz
  • Series 4PLUS amps – illuminated on/off buttons for the front panel controls to indicate whether the button is on (lit) or off (unlit).
