The SUBWAY® D-800+™ provides all of the features of our now popular SUBWAY® D-800™ (ultra-lightweight, yet professionally power-rated at 800 Watts Class D power, and with a full feature, easy to navigate preamp) and addresses the player who wants enhanced frequency control and an interface for outboard signal processing. The upscale 800+ preamp features expand upon the acclaimed D-800 by including a comprehensive EQ section with Semi-Parametric sweep-able LOW and HIGH MID Bands, the addition of a BRIGHT switch, an adjustable HIGH-PASS Filter with control from 30Hz to 150 Hz, and on the Rear Panel, a Series Effects Loop, Tuner Output and 1/4” MUTE footswitch jack. It is big enough to gig large venues, yet small enough to tote in a gig bag.
Built around a combination of signature circuits ranging from our classic tube models like the vintage Bass 400+ and more recent Bass Strategy™ 8:88™, to the MOSFET powered accuracy and mid-focused definition of the Big Block™ 750 and M9 Carbine™ the new SUBWAY line embodies the best qualities from the entire MESA Bass lineage and unveils a unique new voice all its own.
A feature that sets the SUBWAY D-800+ apart from the rest of the market is the inclusion of a studio grade XLR balanced DIRECT OUTPUT, complete with PRE-EQ/POST-EQ signal routing switch, MIC/LINE level switch, and pin 1 GROUND LIFT switch. Circuit attributes include full phantom power protection, high RFI immunity and extreme tolerance to reasonable ground potential differences. The SUBWAY D-800+ contains an auto-ranging universal power supply that can take anywhere between 100-120 volts & 220-240 volts AC, 50/60Hz without the need for a fuse change. This feature makes these amps ideal for the international touring musician who plays in a variety of global regions.
