Preliminary
Editorial
Udo Roesner
Director
Across the world, acoustic instruments have come
into focus. All kinds of instruments from traditional
to modern, acoustic to electric can be enjoyed in solo
or ensemble settings and within all musical styles. As
little ‚plugged in‘ the ‚unplugged‘ may be authentic
amplification is more important than ever! Every instrument deserves the chance to be evenly heard in its
natural beauty. Since 1992 we at AER have never let
go our passion for instruments, music, tone and that
little bit extra we can put on top to push things further,
perform better – we just love it.
Being regarded the reference class in acoustic amplification (we received our 5th MIPA award for best
acoustic amp in 2007) and with the many positive
comments of you, thrilled and committed musicians,
we have a lot of confidence and motivation to keep
on going! It is to say ‚thank you‘ for your support and
understanding and for staying with us even if things
take a little longer.
There are many ways for us to explore still, to improve
and get better. We do feel the road has not ended yet,
thus we advance into other fields including musical
instruments and accessories. We know little things can
make a big difference and be sure if we can hear a difference we will pass it on to you.

Besides this we will maintain what we are doing: deliver extraordinary solutions for musicians from the instrument to the loudspeaker. We are very serious about

Compact Classic pro
To boldly go…
The Compact Classic pro is aimed at classical players and
their instruments. Compared to the Compact 60, the Compact Classic benefits from an improved 2-way-speaker system, a more complex three band EQ with parametric bass
and the 32bit AER digital effect processor with carefully designed presets for classical instruments.
Model: Compact Classic professional (CPC)
All the features combine perfectly to more allow for the
finer tonal texture of a classical instrument throughout the
full audio band. It enhances the low frequency response without increasing the feedback risk and creates beautiful ambiences that support the tone. Many pickup systems and their
relevant combinations are used to match the instruments
thus four pre-amp and two phantom-power options are provided in an input matrix.

systems that cut through
This is where it all started and it is undoubtedly regarded the
reference system for acoustic instruments and the best that we
can do in a small box like this (3 MIPA awards) – the ultimate
solution for a soloist.
For more than 16 years this little giant has set standards and we
have done our best to push the limits further and further.
In its 3rd generation now we have implemented advanced
dynamic control technology and have extended the dynamic
range substantially. The new two-way speaker system is an incredible improvement! It allows a much clearer and defined
bass response and much lighter, more vivid reproduction of the
complete range up to finest texture.
Cube 3 is a full two channel version now allowing identical
features on both channels. It needed a face-lift for more operational clarity and to allow additional important controls on the
front panel.
In essence we have combined all the suggestions of Cube
enthusiasts over the years with all our knowledge and experience… without compromise… and we are more than pleased.

The BassCube 2 has proven to do an excellent job to reproduce
double bass authentically.
Now, in its 2nd generation we have identified a real coaxial
speaker-system (12“ and a 1“ horn) that works extremely well in
its very small bass-reflex cabinet. It has lost some weight and is
much clearer in its functions and features.
We have also implemented AER’s new advanced dynamic control technology and have extended the dynamic range substantially. Driven by the new AER 550 W/8 ohm class d power amp
the BassCube 2 has got the power to go down to the lowest
frequencies in an effortless manner.
Well balanced analogue sound design covers the ranges
gently and proportionate so that tone stays always clear, crisp
and transparent yet powerful and defined without any stress!
Its two channels are equally equipped and allow two different
instruments set up in all comfort – and be sure it work very well
for electric bass too.
Whether ‘arco’ or ‘pizzicato’ – the BassCube 2 sounds like your
bass: round and open – you can hear the stroke of your bow as
true to life as the placing of your fingers on the fingerboard.

Solutions
for Acoustic, Jazz and Fusion
The Basic Performer is a solution for Bass and instruments of
the lower registers based on the experience of multiplying well
proven AER acoustic systems.
Regardless of scale lengths, body sizes and resonance problems
just to name some trouble zones of acoustic bass instruments
– they require the same approach and care to reproduce well
balanced and clear registers.
A small twin-cone system seems perfect – it is fast, provides a
superior coverage for the critical mid-range and has got enough
substance in the bass range. So in the Basic Performer four
8“-twin-cone speakers, individually powered by four 60 watt
power amps provide for the required surface area and the necessary sound pressure level.
The AER band-pass/bass-reflex cabinet design supports the
reproduction of even the lowest frequencies with definition. Hiend preamps, proper filters and additional professional sound
design make the Basic Performer a multitalented all-round
solution.
The sound characteristics are full range thus open and light
yet breathing as well as grumbling and surprisingly appropriate
for far more instruments than the bass-related instruments such
as harp, cello, accordion…
or even try a jazz guitar!

to european ‘hifi’ orientated sounds. Head one can be used in
three operational modes: 2 channel full-range mode, 2-wayactive mode and bridge-mode in combination with Cab one,
Cab two or Cab three. It is equipped with ‘tube emulation’ for
‘drive’ sounds, two independent EQs, ‘colour-switch’ and ‘tone lever’. Class d amps are getting more popular as besides efficiency
they can be made so surprisingly small and light. Besides these
benefits they inherit a lot of problems (noise, distortion, cut-off )
especially if they are used in ‘limit mode’. Their overall performance is extremely depending on the design and the smart use
of controls and protections to guarantee proper functionality.
We have done a lot to make that happen!
Thanks to Paul from ‘Bass matters’ for his time,
effort and advice.

Bottom Line Cabinets
Loudspeaker systems for electric bass-guitars
Design features, besides efficiency, light in weight, small in size,
reproduction of a truthfull tone, have mainly been fast attack
time, low distortion and high power handling. All of this is extremely demanding and requires a lot of attention to all detail.
Cab one is a two way full range loudspeaker system. To extend
the bass range we decided to apply two 10“ speakers in pushpull mode. This allows smaller cabinet size keeping the low cutoff frequency and thus allows more low end besides performing
with less distortion.
Instead of a horn or tweeter whose ‘harshness’ we are not really friends with we relied on the performance of the AER 8“
twin cone extended range chassis to cover the mid and high
frequency range.

Loudspeaker systems for electric bass-guitars
Cab two is a 15“, Cab three a 12“ neodym bass reflex loudspeaker-system. Both work stand alone with Head one. Cab
two in addition is the perfect match to work in conjunction
with Cab one as full stack.
Besides many other design concepts bass reflex still is a very
valid compromise that provides extended bass range in a relatively small cabinet with reasonable step response.
The cabinets are all made with extreme care, rock-solid
components and a lot of additional bracing to keep the level
of static noise as low as possible.

Active Loudspeaker, Full-range
AS Q8 is a small full-range 2-way active system in bandpass /
bassreflex construction.
The concept behind the construction is to have a small sound
system, tonally well balanced with excellent speech intelligibility, sufficient bass yet quick in response. A combination of
bass reflex and band-pass supports the low ranges. Four power
amplifiers driving four extended range 8“ loudspeakers and a
dome-tweeter, are hidden within this simple looking full-range
system.
This quick, direct and authentic system is particularly
suitable for near-field PA.

Self-powered 2-way mid-high systems
The design concepts of AS 360/D and AS 550/D are corresponding: direct radiating coaxial self-powered systems in small
bass-reflex enclosures. They are mutually capable to handle
multiple applications e.g speech, delay-line or near-field PA
where no sub bass is required.
Their components are matched, optimised for maximum efficiency and tuned for superb sound reproduction.
Through the use of integrated class d amplifiers and switch
mode power supplies we can keep size and weight surprisingly
low however electronically well oversized they allow maximum
dynamic range.
