1. INTRODUCTION
Congratulations! With the ULTRABASS head, you have acquired
a state-of-the-art bass amp that sets new standards. The
ULTRABASS is an extremely powerful 2-channel bass amp. It
gives you loads of power and makes sure that you always have
a few extra watts available whenever you need them. The other
items on the list of features are no less impressive: The
ULTRABASS has one clean and one distortion channel plus one
equalizer with a ground-breaking “see-what-you-play” FBQ
frequency display, which immediately shows you which bass
frequency is assigned to which control—the perfect solution for
sound tuning as you play. A musical limiter circuit protects the
unit effectively against distortion, even at maximum volume. The
connectors for headphones and CD players are ideal for
practicing.
This user’s manual will allow you to familiarize
yourself with the control elements of your new
ULTRABASS and learn all of its functions. After
reading this manual, store it where you can easily
find it for future reference.

The fuse retainer near the power cord connector has three
triangular markings. Two of these triangles point in opposite
directions. Your ULTRABASS is set up for the voltage
indicated near these markings, and can be altered by turning
the fuse mount by 180 degrees. ATTENTION: This does
not apply to export models built for 120 V, for
example!
If you use your ULTRABASS unit with a different
voltage, you must change the fuses accordingly.
The correct value of the fuses needed can be found
in the section “SPECIFICATIONS”.
Faulty fuses must be replaced with fuses of
appropriate rating, without exception! The correct
value of the fuses needed can be found in the
section “SPECIFICATIONS”.

2. CONTROL ELEMENTS
AND CONNECTIONS
Fig. 2.3: The master section
Use the MASTER control to set the overall volume.
The PHONES jack (¼" TRS jack) is for connecting a pair of
headphones. You can use headphones from the
BEHRINGER HP Series. This connector, when in use, mutes
the built-in bass speaker.
Fig. 2.1: The input section
INPUT. Connect your bass guitar to this input jack on the
ULTRABASS (¼" TS jack).
The POWER switch powers up your ULTRABASS. The
POWER switch should always be in the “Off” position before
you connect the ULTRABASS to the main power source.
The GAIN 1 control determines the input gain on channel 1.
Use the CH 2 button to switch between the two channels.
The CH 2 button lights up when channel 2 has been
activated. To switch channels, you can also use the
supplied footswitch.
The GAIN 2 control sets the degree of distortion of
channel 2. The further the control is turned clockwise,
the higher the degree of distortion.
SHAPE is a special filter for your personal sound design. It
gives you numerous options for shaping your bass sound.
Application examples of the shape function can be found
in section 3.2.2.
Please note: The POWER switch does not fully
disconnect the unit from the mains power cord
plug or extention cord. To disconnect the unit from
the main power source, pull out the main cord plug
or appliance coupler. When installing the product,
ensure the plug or appliance coupler is readily
operable. Unplug the power cord when the unit is
not used for prolonged periods of time.
The Shape filter is only effective on channel 2. The
signal in channel 1 remains unprocessed.
Use the LEVEL control to adjust the volume of channel 2.
Use this control to achieve the balance in volume that you
want between channels 1 and 2.
Fig. 2.4: The rear-panel connectors
Use the balanced DIRECT OUTPUT (XLR) to route the
audio signal from the ULTRABASS to the input on a mixing
console. The signal is taken from the point between the
equalizer and the MASTER control.
Fig. 2.2: The FBQ EQUALIZER
The FBQ EQUALIZER has 7 slide controls, one for each
frequency band. The maximum boost/cut is 12 dB.
The FBQ switch activates the FBQ spectrum analyzer.
The control LEDs, which are identical in brightness when
FBQ is off, now show the energy content of each
frequency band by lighting up with varying degrees of
brightness. The equalizer function is always active,
irrespective of the FBQ function. (For details on the FBQ
function see section 3.2.1.)
6
The SPEAKER OUTPUT jack is used to connect to a
speaker cabinet.
Your speaker cabinets should have a sufficient
power rating (>180 W) and preferably a total
impedance of 4 Ω to avoid speaker damage. Too
high load impedance will decrease the output power
rating of the power stage!
As an alternative to taking the signal from output
LINE OUT signal (¼" TS jack) can also be used.

favorite songs played back from CD or MD, or with a drum
computer.
With the Ultrabass function enabled (button
) you can
use the ULTRABASS control to add ultra-low frequencies
to your bass signal. The ULTRABASS effect is available
for both channels (see section 3.2.3).
The BXR1800H head includes a dual footswitch. Connect
the footswitch to the FOOT SW(ITCH) jack. Use the
footswitch to select a channel (corresponds to the CH 2
button
) and to activate the Ultrabass function
(corresponds to the ON button
).
Press the ON button to switch on the ULTRABASS function.
The LED in the button lights up. You can also control this
effect using the footswitch supplied with the unit.
3. FIRST STEPS
3.1 Connect your bass and get started
We’re sure you cannot wait to set up and connect your
ULTRABASS amp and check out its sounds. So, let’s get going!
V
Connect your instrument to the input jack
before you
switch on the unit. Use a standard instrument cable with
¼" TS connectors.
V
Turn the MASTER control
fully to the left, then switch
off the equalizer, compressor and Ultrabass function
(buttons
,
and
) to start off with a neutral
sound.
V
Set the GAIN control to mid-travel position.
V
Switch on the ULTRABASS using the POWER switch
,
then adjust the desired volume level using the MASTER
control
.
Fig. 2.5: Fuse holder and IEC receptacle (rear panel)
FUSE RETAINER/VOLTAGE SELECTOR. Please make sure
that the voltage indicated by the voltage selector matches
the local voltage before you connect the unit to the main
power supply. Always replace blown fuses with fuses of
the same type and rating. Some units feature a fuse retainer
in which a selection between 230 V and 120 V is possible.
Please be aware: When using your unit outside Europe
and with 120 V, a fuse with a higher rating is required.
Power is supplied via an IEC connector. The matching
cable is provided with the unit.
The ULTRABASS has two input channels to be selected with
the channel selector
. When channel 1 is active (button LED
can be used to adjust the input
off), the GAIN 1 control
sensitivity.
To distort sounds, use channel 2. On channel 2, you can also
create an alternative sound: one that is louder than or shaped
differently from the sound on channel 2. (For details about the
Shape control, see section 3.2.) Use the GAIN 2 control
to
adjust the input level of channel 2. This control also allows you to
determine the amount of distortion. If the signal becomes too
loud, you can use the LEVEL control
to cut back the volume
and align it with the volume of channel 1. This way, you can
avoid drastic level changes when switching channels.
3.2 Sound processing
The ULTRABASS offers a variety of features to modify your
bass sound. These processing functions are described in this
section.
3.2.1 The FBQ equalizer
Fig. 2.6: COMPRESSOR function
The COMPRESSOR control governs the compression
intensity (see section 3.2.4).
The equalizer is a graphic 7-band EQ incorporating an FBQ
spectrum analyzer. When a slide control is set to the zero position,
the instrument signal remains unprocessed in the relevant
frequency band.
Use the ON switch to activate the compressor.
3. FIRST STEPS

ULTRABASS BXR1800H
V
V
To raise the level of a specific frequency band, move its
slide control upwards.
To lower its volume, move the control downwards.
Each control has an LED which displays the level of the
respective frequency band by lighting up with varying degrees
of brightness. This feature helps you find the control(s) that you
need for sound processing. Press the FBQ switch
to switch
on the FBQ display. For example, if the sound is muddy or booming
at 160 Hz, this is shown by a brightly lit LED in the corresponding
control. Move the 160-Hz control down a bit (negative range) to
eliminate the booming sound. Conversely, you can accentuate
certain signal ranges that lack presence (LED lights up only
faintly) by moving the relevant controls upwards.
You don’t have to raise the volume of a frequency
range to make it seem louder. Instead, you can
lower the other frequency ranges by moving their
slide controls downwards. This prevents the
internal signal level from becoming too high and
also gives you some valuable dynamics headroom.
3.2.2 The Shape function
The Shape function on your ULTRABASS provides a
revolutionary type of filter that you can use to modify your bass
sound completely. The filter allows you to shape your sound—
which is a must for bass players today. Extreme filter settings
will give your bass sound more punch, for example:
You want to play a live bass solo but the sound doesn’t cut
through. The solo should stand out, rather than being drowned.
First, set up a solid basic sound on channel 1. Then, create a
very distinctive solo sound on channel 2 using the Shape filter.
Since the Shape filter is only effective on channel 2, you can
change sounds quickly and easily before you begin your solo.
3.2.4 The compressor
A compressor is used to limit the dynamic range of a signal.
Signal peaks are lowered and soft signals are raised in volume,
thus reducing the difference between the highest and the lowest
signal levels. The result is a much more powerful sound.
Some playing techniques, such as slapping, lead to high-level
differences. In this case, a compressor can be used to make the
low-level dead notes clearly audible, which gives the bass line
even more groove. What is more, the sustain of long notes is
extended.
V
Use the ON switch
V
Turn the COMPRESSOR control

V
Press the ON switch to compare the compressed signal
with the unprocessed one.
slowly to the right to
Compressors work best if provided with high input signals. If the
signal level is low, the effect will be activated only with high
settings. If so, enabling the compressor can lead to extreme
level differences. If GAIN is high, the compressor comes in quite
early. In this case, you don’t need to turn up the COMPRESSOR
control that far to achieve an effect. Experiment with it to find the
best setting for your needs!
The compressor works independently of the builtin protective limiter, which is always active and
protects the power amplifier from overload and
hence distortion.
The Shape filter is worth its weight in gold when you are using
two different bass guitars. Maybe you want to change from one
instrument to another with a completely different sound. During
gigs you often lack the time to set up your amp for a different
instrument. Because you can use channel 1 for one instrument
and channel 2, with its Shape filter, for another instrument, you’ll
be glad to have the ULTRABASS.
3.2.3 The Ultrabass function
In current music productions, extremely low bass sounds that
are one octave below the lowest available bass guitar frequency
are quite popular. Often, you can only create this sound in studios,
because most bass amplifiers have no sub-harmonics function.
This is not true with the ULTRABASS. The Ultrabass processor
gives you the ultimate tool to shape this contemporary sound.
You’ll be amazed to hear how deep your bass can sound with
the Ultrabass function. Extreme settings can be particularly
interesting if you want to give your sound added sparkle in the
treble range. By the way, if you already set the Shape filter to
create punchy sounds, but feel that there’s not enough power in
the bass range, the sub-harmonics processor is there to help
you. Even if the sound is still punchy, it will have much more depth.
The Ultrabass function can be controlled with the supplied
footswitch, in order to emphasize certain passages, for example.

ULTRABASS BXR1800H
4. WIRING EXAMPLES
4.1 Setup for practicing with playbacks
To use an external effects device, connect the input of the
effects unit to the FX INSERT SEND on the ULTRABASS, and the
output of the effects device to the FX INSERT RETURN. Instead
of the floor effects shown here, you can also use a wah-wah
pedal or an external 19" effects unit.
If you want the bass signal to go through a PA system during live
gigs, you would normally need a DI box. (DI boxes process the
signals for long cables and provide a higher output level at the
mixing console). The ULTRABASS amps have a DI box already
built in! Connect the balanced DIRECT OUTPUT directly to the
mixing console input or to the multi-core cable leading to the
console. Use a microphone cable (2-core shielded cable with
XLR connectors).
Alternatively, you can use the LINE OUT (¼" TS jack) for short
cables and mixing consoles with line-level inputs (e.g. for
recording in your home studio without having to use a
microphone). Of course, you can also use this output as an
additional send path or to connect a tuner.
4.3 The ULTRABASS as a slave with an
external pre-amp
If you wish to use another bass preamp or modeling amp
(e. g. BASS V-AMP or BASS V-AMP PRO), you can connect this
amp to the FX INSERT RETURN jack. In this configuration, the
ULTRABASS is used as a power amp only, and the two input
channels are disabled.
Fig. 4.1: Standard setup
This setup is intended for rehearsals or practicing at home.
Connect the ULTRABASS as shown in Fig. 4.1. To feed in
playbacks, connect a CD player to the CD input. Of course, you
can also connect an MD player or a computer.
If you want to practice with headphones, just plug your
headphones in the PHONES jack. The built-in loudspeaker will be
muted automatically. Turn the MASTER control fully left before
you connect the headphones.
4.4 ULTRABASS with one loudspeaker cabinet
The following figure shows a connection between a speaker
cabinet and the SPEAKER OUTPUT jack of the BXR1800H head.
The speaker cabinet’s impedance requires a minimum of 4 Ω.
4.2 Expanded setup for gigs and studio recordings
Fig. 4.3: Connecting a speaker cabinet
Fig. 4.2: Expanded setup
The following wiring scheme is recommended for live gigs or
studio work. It builds on the standard setup.
Connect the footswitch supplied with the unit to the FOOT
SW(ITCH) jack on the ULTRABASS. Use the footswitch to switch
channels and to activate the Ultrabass function, which is
particularly useful when playing live.
