The DoubleShot Combo consists of the DoubleShot speaker and The AI Clarus 2 integrated amplifiers. There are rubber stops on the top of the cabinet that hold the amp head in place. When the amp is placed on top against the stops and the speaker is connected, a unique “combo” is formed.
The DoubleShot is a compact (12in D x 11in W), lightweight (20 lbs.) 2x10 plus 1x5 speaker system for acoustic and electric instruments. The system is unique, with the woofers mounted in a side-firing configuration and the midrange firing forward. The result is a highly portable, yet great sounding speaker system.
The DoubleShot is an evolution of the Acoustic Image UpShot speaker, with a second 10-inch driver and 5-inch midrange added to the design. It is, by far, the smallest and lightest 2x10 system available. Its small size belies its outstanding full range sound.
The DoubleShot is also available as part of three combos you can find available in our web store.

The Clarus S4plus retains two independent channels which accept either instrument or mic inputs [onboard 48v phantom for condenser mics]. The EQ section adds a two band Midrange section for more precise control and flexibility over this critical frequency range making the little head even more adaptable to most any musical instrument.

And for those others who just want the basic message: The Acoustic Image Clarus2 S4plus offers high fidelity performance for all instruments.
But the real story is about SOUND. Acoustic Image has improved fidelity in the S4plus series with more headroom and dropping the self-noise floor to nearly imperceptible. This makes a noticeable difference and the sound is transparent even at very high SPLs.
Solid state amplification just doesn't get any better than this.
