Following the unveiling at NAMM 2019, Finnish studio monitor manufacturer Amphion Loudspeakers will launch FlexBase25, for the first time in Europe, during the Musikmesse and Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, April 2-5, 2019 (Hall 8.0 booth J50). FlexBase25 is a tunable bass extension system for Amphion's range of nearfield studio monitors, allowing an exact definition of the complete frequency response as required for recording, mixing and mastering tasks.

Amphion's innovative stereo base extension system has already received great interest from shows in North America and Asia-Pacific, earning acclaim from a number of award-winning producers and sound engineers. Now, the European professional-audio audience will have the chance to experience FlexBase25.

"We are very glad to be back in Frankfurt to demonstrate FlexBase25's extensive capabilities," says Anssi Hyvonen, Amphion's Founder and Managing Director. "One really needs to hear it in order to understand that FlexBase25 is not just another subwoofer. It is a base extension that easily turns two-way monitors into a full-range system. As an increasing number of sound engineers wear different hats - writing, mixing, and even mastering - the flexibility of their monitoring system is crucial. This is where FlexBase25 comes into its own. It can easily fit any project with the turn of a few dials," says Hyvonen.
FlexBase25 system is housed in a single box. It provides wide adjustment possibilities such as variable crossover frequency between 35 and 260 Hz, and adjustment of the mono-stereo spread. This flexibility allows the user to change the system's response based on the specifics of the task at hand and ensures an easy integration between the base extension and the monitors.

The one way closed box, stereo design works with two twin 10" aluminum cone drivers, powered by a dedicated amplifier - 600W RMS into 4 Ω @ 1% THD - which sits between the main monitors, providing main signal balanced inputs and outputs, together with an LFE input and link out. The front panel in the amplifier provides level and crossover frequency adjustments, with a dedicated knob to adjust the stereo spread.

Easy to set up, and placed in the centre-line between the main speakers, the FlexBase25 works with all Amphion products. Paired with One12, One15, One18, or Two15 studio monitors, it is ideal for a smaller-room, full-range system. Positioned behind the console, while keeping One18, Two15 or Two18 on the meter bridge, it performs effortlessly in a larger facility.

During the Frankfurt show, visitors will have the chance to experience FlexBase25 paired with One18 monitors with a Sessiondesk Solo modular system and speaker stands.
