Formation Bass


Power is nothing without control – so Formation Bass digs deep and hits hard, but does so with complete command. Enjoy the sort of profound low-frequency presence that makes every song an occasion and every movie an event.

Dual driver technology

Thanks to its opposed dual driver arrangement, Bass delivers clean low-end punch with lower distortion than ever.

Constantly optimised

Dynamic EQ allows Bass to monitor and adjust its output in real time, for optimum performance in any eventuality.

Power and efficiency

250 watts sounds like a lot – and it is. Class D amplification makes Bass both high-efficiency and high-performance.

For any Formation

Bass works with the entire Formation range – so prodigious low-frequency action is assured in any circumstance.
