** LATEST FEATURES **

PRX150-DAG Model: Line Out Switching Potentiometer "Push/Pull Pot (Level Control Knob)"


Switches between the raw Direct Output signal and an Equalized Line Out signal:
Potentiometer Knob Pushed In = Equalized Line Out signal that emulates the natural high frequency roll off of a guitar speaker.

Potentiometer Knob Pulled Out = Non-equalized Line Out, the raw sampled "non-equalized" signal from the amplifier.

PRX150-Pro2 and PRX150-DAG Models: Rear Metal Bumpers

Added protection for the switches and knobs on the back panel.



THE PRX150 ADVANTAGES:

Proprietary, patent pending Speaker Reactance Thru (S.R.T.) attenuation technology:


Unlike other attenuators, the S.R.T technology does not load down the speakers reactance, which allows your speakers to react and perform naturally throughout the attenuation range. The PRX150 with its S.R.T. technology provides highly transparent tone.

Independent Input and Output impedance selector switches:
* Amplifier to Speaker Cabinet Impedance Matching Feature (Patent Pending)


PRX150-Pro2:
- from the amplifier and into the attenuator, select from: 4, 8, 16 ohm
- from the attenuator and to the speaker cabinet(s), select from: 4, 8, 16 ohm
Uniquely allows 9 possible Input and Output (Amplifier to Speaker Cabinet) impedance combinations.

PRX150-DAG:
- from the amplifier and into the attenuator, select from: 2, 4, 8, 16 ohm
- from the attenuator and to the speaker cabinet(s), select from: 2, 4, 8, 16 ohm
Uniquely allows 16 possible Input and Output (Amplifier to Speaker Cabinet) impedance combinations.

* No other attenuator offers our separate, selectable Input and Output impedance design.

* No other attenuator offers the PRX150's Amplifier to Speaker Cabinet Impedance Matching Feature (patent pending).


150 watt power rating:

The PRX150 line of attenuators can truly handle the power of your "monster" 100 watt (quad power tube) amplifier that is actually putting out much more than 100 watts when cranked up. Unlike other power attenuators that "overheat" with a cranked up 100 watt amp.


Dual Range Variable Attenuation Mode:

Also exclusive to the PRX150 line of attenuators is the Min/Max Toggle switch, that allows the user to select between two Variable Attenuation ranges, providing very fine and precise control of the variable attenuation.



There are hundreds of happy PRX150 attenuator customers throughout the world. The PRX150 is used by professional, semi-pro, studio and hobby guitarist in more than 25 countries.

Premier Guitar Magazine
   "Sonically, the Aracom PRX 150-Pro attenuator stayed very true to every amp I paired it with. My tone stayed stable as I lowered the dB level to its minimum amount (the variable control doesn�t turn the sound completely off). Even super-quiet bedroom settings sounded very good and responded to picking and touch extremely well. This attractive, sturdily built unit would be a great addition to any guitarist�s tone arsenal."


M Music & Musicians Magazine
   "MAXIMUM TONE AT A MINIMAL VOLUME - For preserving your neighbors� sanity. Like a fine sports car, some amps need to be opened up before they hit their stride�but the volume makes this an ongoing challenge for amp lovers and soundmen alike. The PRX took the loudest non-master volume amp we could find down to conversation level with none of the tonal compromises we�ve noticed in the other units."


Guitar Player Magazine
  "... the PRX150-Pro�s Speaker Reactance Thru (SRT) technology helped deliver a satisfyingly balanced tone at reduced volume levels...

July 2010 - Premier Guitar Magazine's PRX150 Attenuator Review

"If you have an amp that sounds great when you crank it up but it�s just too loud for most playing situations, you�ll want to know about the new Aracom Power Rox PRX 150-Pro amp attenuator. Designed for use with tube amps, this unit lets you reduce the level of a fully cranked head or combo."
