WebGuy General News, Mesa Boogie

Weighing in at only 5.5 lbs., and at just over 3 inches tall x 10 inches wide the  professionally power-rated Class D Subway delivers 800 Watts (@ 4 or 2 Ohms, 400 Watts @ 8 Ohms) of power to command any venue from a small club to a large concert stage, yet fits in the pocket of your gig bag!

The Subway D-800 is built around a combination of signature circuits ranging from the classic tube models like the vintage Bass 400+ and more recent Bass Strategy 8:88, to the mosfet powered accuracy and mid-focused definition of the Big Block 750 and M9 Carbine, the new Subway D-800 embodies the best qualities from these amps and unveils a unique new voice all its own.

It has a 4-Band Fixed, Rotary EQ Section (Bass, Low, Mid, Hi Mid & Treble) Controls. These four controls are your tone foundation and then there’s the Voicing control to add the finishing touch, or even vice versa, any sound you desire is only a quick twist away.

The Voice controls have previously appeared on several MESA Bass amps, here on the Subway D-800, this control has a continuously variable rendering that allows fine-tuning of your sound from a more “flat” response to a radically scooped midrange sound with the lows and highs boosted
