THE BASSMENT_HEAD AND CABINET REVIEW
The amplifier features no limiting and to that
end you are afforded as much of the power
amplifier’s output as possible before it clips.
EBS says that when the amplifier does finally
push into clipping, it does it in a musical
way. I have to say though, when we cranked
the levels, the cabinets gave in to the crazy
volume levels before the amplifier showed
any signs of breaking a sweat!
It’s pretty loud for a standard 12” speaker
pair I have to say!
EBS quotes this amplifier as having a 250W
RMS output stage with a ‘dynamic output’
at four Ohms of 470W. In EBS marketing
videos, the heads are said to be comparable
to the output power of competitors’ 500W
rated heads. We were unable to test these

We loved this wonderfully compact rig in
the studio. The head sits comfortably and
substantially upon the pair of EBS CL112
cabinets featuring a single EBS 12” bass
speaker and 2” tweeter. We left both tweeters
switched on in the review, preferring to use
the EQ controls to adjust the tone and top
end. To be honest though, the sound was
incredibly well balanced and even with my
reasonably bright bass, I chose to leave the
EQ mostly flat, but boosted the low end a bit
to add depth to the sound.
Each of the CL112 cabinets has a rating of
250W at 8 Ohms, paired together giving you
a 500W mini stack at 4 Ohms.
This is a perfect configuration for the
Reidmar as a small modular rig – but make
no mistake, the Reidmar would be very
happy powering EBS’s much larger cabinets
