SPL Reducer Passive Power Soak

The SPL Reducer Passive Power Soak allows you to overdrive your amp without having to blast yourself away with tons of volume! Reduce your amp's volume output without altering your tone.

SPL Reducer Passive Power Soak Details

The SPL Reducer Passive Power Soak is as simple as the name implies, it reduces the power output of a guitar or bass amp. This means that all sorts of amps, especially tube amps, can now be overdriven without the need of having to be too loud. So whenever you need the best sound of your guitar amp, with the Reducer you always get it. The Reducer works entirely passively and converts the amp's energy into heat - this ensures the best sound characteristics and can turn it into a really hot unit indeed!

Just like the other SPL power soak products Transducer and Cabulator, SPL developed the Reducer together with the amp specialists from Tonehunter in Cologne, Germany.

The Reducer is placed between the guitar amp and the speaker. At this stage, it converts the amp's electric power into heat. Power reduction with resistors requires no additional power supply. The passive principle guarantees an accurate sound reproduction without any influence on the frequency response curve. So the Reducer is neutral, providing just a volume control.

For the amp output, impedance can be set to 4, 8 or 16 Ohm. Reduction is stepwise in the first stages, but it can then be adjusted continuously.
