2018 Friedman ASM-12 Profiler Monitor

ASM-12 Profiler Monitor (2018)

I love my Kemper Modeling Head but I really wanted to be able to crank it up sometimes and running a modeler through another amp kind of defeats the purpose of having a modeler. I looked at other FRFR ( full range, flat response) speakers like the Line 6 but I was disappointed by the sound. They felt and sounded small.  Friedman has a great name in speakers and amps so I gave this one a try and it is amazing! I get all of the different tones and range in the Kemper and the tube amp models have all of the 'thump' I've been missing. The shape of the ASM-12 is also very flexible. It can sit like a floor monitor or be mounted vertically on a speaker stand.

Here's Friedman's description:
