Keep It Real - Get The Authentic Tonality Of Classic Speakers With The Line 6 Powercab 212 Plus
The Powercab 212 Plus is a 2x12 active speaker systems that deliver an authentic "amp-in-the-room" playing experience when paired with any modeler, profiler, or even an amp-simulation pedal. Select one of six classic Speaker Models as alternatives to your current cab models, or simply plug in your modeler and play using Flat Mode-the choice is yours.
Powercabs are also loud enough to fill any small club or medium-sized venue, and performing guitarists will also appreciate their lightweight yet roadworthy construction, compact size, flip-out kickstands, and XLR direct outputs.
The Powercab 212 Plus also includes powerful advanced features, such as a 2-inch LCD, 128 user preset locations, MIDI In/Out, AES/EBU and L6 LINK digital I/O, a multipurpose second input, and a USB audio interface.

THE AUTHENTIC FEEL KEEPS IT REAL
The sound of a great amplifier is due to the speaker as much as from the other components, yet until now no one has modeled an actual speaker driver alone - independently from the cabinet it is loaded into.
Imagine having an empty 2x12 speaker cabinet that you can instantly load with any one of six classic speaker types (Vintage 30, Greenback, Creamback, P12Q, Swamp Thang, and Blue Bell) just by pressing a button. Speaker Modeling mode enables you to do just that, virtually - using new technologies developed by Line 6, it's easy to capture the feel that keeps it real.
Powercab active guitar speaker systems provide premier amplification for modelers. Whether faithfully amplifying any modelerâ€™s preset sounds in Flat mode, or substituting proprietary onboard speaker models for that modelerâ€™s onboard cabs in Speaker Modeling mode, Powercabs enable guitarists to maximize their modelerâ€™s performance. Powercabs look, sound, and respond like guitar cabinets because they are guitar cabinets.
The 500-watt Powercab 212 Plus active guitar speaker system was designed for use with professional modelers - whether set to Flat (FRFR) or Speaker Modeling mode.
FLAT RESPONSE (FRFR)
In Flat mode guitarists enjoy the benefits of Full-Range, Flat-Response speaker systems - but while playing through guitar speakers, resulting in more authentic feel.
Impulse Responses (IRs) Third-party speaker cabinet IRs may be saved into any of 128 presets, providing additional tone options and conserving modeler DSP.
Onboard Speaker Models - not the same as cabinet models or IRs - provide a more organic playing experience. Swap virtual speakers with the press of a button.
Powercabs are constructed of wood rather than plastic, and tuned like traditional guitar cabinets for enhanced acoustic resonance.
Bypassing the cab models in a modelerâ€™s presets and switching Powercab to Speaker Modeling mode results in an authentic â€œamp-in-the-roomâ€ playing experience.
Powercabs feature custom coaxial speakers with lightweight cones that deliver the extended range of P.A. speakers - but with the familiar response of guitar speakers.
Hear stereo presets the way they were meant to be heard through the Powercab 212 or a pair of Powercab 112 speakers.
AES/EBU connectivity reduces the input and output latency for an even more immediate and organic response to playing dynamics.
Powercabs provide a balanced XLR direct output with microphone emulation (stereo noutputs with Powercab 212 Plus) for routing to a front-of-house mixer or other purpos
