The Amp 

 

IF YOU HAVE FELT THE ITCH. IF YOU MISS THAT ‘SOMETHING’ THAT YOU CAN’T PUT THE FINGER ON. IF YOU HAVE TRIED DIFFERENT AMPS BUT HAVEN’T FOUND A HOME THAT GIVES YOU THE PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE THE ‘GOOD OLD’ AMPS USED TO DO. THEN, THE EBS 802 HIGH DYNAMICS LINEAR BASS AMPLIFIER IS WHAT YOU NEED.


 

Excellent Solid-state Technology

EBS excellence in solid-state technology is well known and runs through the veins back to when the company started in 1988.

The World’s stage spotlight landed on EBS when the company introduced their first solid-state hybrid amps in the late 90s’. Since then, EBS has developed into a thriving business that covers most of bass players’ needs.

The EBS 802 is the new cornerstone of the EBS amplifications program. Engineered to be the new reference amp to define the ‘EBS sound’.

 

Another Level

This creation brings you all that a lightweight amplifier can not offer.

The sound quality, clarity, and punch are on another level. You can feel it with your whole body.

It’s an amp with a soul that speaks to you and makes you smile. A conditioner that relieves the itch for those who suffer from it.

Welcome home to the EBS 802 High Dynamics Linear Bass Amp.

Cabinet guide

 
What speaker cabinets should I use with the EBS 802?

This is an extremely powerful bass amp. Consider that when choosing the right cabinet(s) to use with the EBS 802.

The output at 2 ohms load is 750 Watts RMS. Two 4-ohm cabinets together create a 2-ohm load, which pulls out the maximum effect from the amplifier.

At 4 ohms load, the output is 450 Watts RMS. That means when using a single 4-ohm cabinet make sure it can handle at least 450 W RMS.

We recommend pairing the EBS 802 with cabinets from either the ProLine or NeoLine series by EBS.

 

EBS ProLine Cabinets

The EBS ProLine cabinets are entirely made in Sweden, just like the amplifier.

Transparency, balance, and natural warmth characterize the sound of the ProLine cabinets. For many, they represent the ‘EBS’ signature sound.

The illustration below shows the recommended setups when using EBS ProLine cabinets.

 

 
 
 
EBS NeoLine Speakers

The EBS NeoLine are lightweight Neodymium cabinets with superior, dynamic range and an unmatched power handling throughout the frequency spectrum.

They can handle extreme lows, and the response is snappy and superfast.

The following setups are recommended when using EBS NeoLine cabinets.

 

* The NeoLine 410, 210, and 212 can be ordered in an 8-ohm configuration, although they usually are made as 4-ohm cabinets.
