Genz Benz Debuts Shuttle 9.0 Bass Amp

Genz Benz announce the new Shuttle 9.0, a 900-watt amp in a 4lb. package.

Scottsdale, AZ (October 3, 2009) - Genz Benz continues its industry leading innovations in bass amplification with the new Shuttle 9.0, delivering 900 watts of power in a mere 4 pound, compact package.

Developed from the successful Shuttle 6.0 platform, the new Shuttle 9.0 offers the same simple Tube preamp features and intuitive layout, along with exceptional headroom and responsive feel.

The powerhouse behind the Shuttle 9.0 is a new Class D amplifier and SMPS module, enhanced with our Patent Pending P.H.A.T. (Proprietary Heat Abatement Technology) topology. This delivers robust and reliable, high output performance in a tremendously convenient package.

The addition of the Shuttle 9.0 makes the entire Shuttle series one of the most comprehensive, lightweight, amplifier line available, offering a variety of power levels and preamp platforms for all applications.

The new Shuttle 9.0 is available through the Genz Benz dealer network beginning October 1, 2009.
