Frequently Asked Questions

 

What does FRFR stand for?

FRFR stand for: Full-Range, Flat-Response. 

 

What is the output power of the FRFR-112?

The FRFR-112 has a powerful 2000 Watt peak power rating; 1000 Watts Continuous RMS. 

 

Can I use other FX modelers with the FRFR-112?

Absolutely! While the FRFR-112 was designed to be the ultimate companion to the HeadRush Pedalboard, its unique design and transparent response make it perfect for achieving an authentic sound with any multi-FX or amp modeler.

 

If I'm using a HeadRush Pedalboard, what output level will give me the best signal response?

Like all gain staging, this will depend on the level of the source (i.e. your rig/pedal chain) and the preferred noise level for the room or environment. Our recommended starting point is 6 on the HeadRush Pedalboard's Master Volume, and 6 for the input on the FRFR-112. This will give you a clean signal with plenty of headroom.

 

Why is my HeadRush Pedalboard clipping the FRFR-112 on the recommended settings?

This may be due to an IR (Impulse Response) being present in your signal chain. Some IR samples have higher natural volume levels and should be turned down using the "gain" parameter on the IR page. 

If you are not using an IR but still hear clipping, you can adjust the full rig’s level at the rig output by pressing Output in the bottom right corner of the HeadRush Pedalboard’s display and use the top-most knob on the right of the display to turn down the rig volume until the clipping is no longer present.

If using a third-party multi-fx/amp modeler, refer to its user manual for a similar process if necessary.

 

Should I use the TRS or XLR connection?

Both inputs are line-level, so either XLR or TRS can be used depending on your preference and the output type on your multi-fx/amp modeler. The TRS inputs will also accept TS input. 

 

Why is the output from my HeadRush Pedalboard so low?

Check that the Amp/Line switch on the back of the Headrush is set to Line. This will set the HeadRush’s output to the correct level for the FRFR-112’s line-level inputs, which is +18dBu.


 

Could I set up two FRFR-112 cabinets for stereo output?

Yes! This setup is great if you are using stereo FX, or multiple amps (with different panning settings) in your rig on the HeadRush Pedalboard. For a stereo setup, connect the left and right main outputs on the HeadRush Pedalboard (or other multi-fx/amp modeler) to two separate FRFR-112 cabinets; one speaker connected to the left output, one speaker connected to the right output.


 

Can you link multiple cabinets together in mono?

Yes! FRFR-112 cabinets can be daisy-chained using the XLR Output on each speaker. Connect an XLR cable from the output of one cabinet to the input on your second cabinet. This will produce the same mono signal through both cabinets.


 

How much does it weigh? 

The FRFR-112 weighs 39.5 lbs (16.3 kg).

 

Can you mount the cabinet on a speaker stand? 

Yes, the FRFR-112 can be mounted on standard size tripod, speaker stands.
