SWR Lite Series – Headlite

The legendary SWR tube preamplifier meets Class D power amp technology in this groundbreaking new product!

The SWR headlite is a 1.7 kg, 400 watt dynamo that delivers the tonal clarity SWR amps are famous for, as well as an astonishingly thunderous low-end response for such a diminutive package. But don’t let the size fool you – this is a full-featured professional quality bass amplifier!

Ideal as a stand-alone amp in a head/speaker rig or partnered with the amplite – a matching 400-watt power amplifier – in a multiple power amp rig, the headlite is an extremely versatile performance tool for stage or studio. The headlite includes a handy accessory bag designed for a headlite, an amplite and all the necessary cables – or it can be rack-mounted in ½ rack space with the optional rack-mount kit.
