With 1000 REAL watts under the hood at 4Ω, the Bi 1000 delivers a tone and power that's an order of magnitude above anything else. This compact, lightweight bass amp delivers a strong, palpable tone, with a transparent preamp that lets the instrument be heard, without any added coloration.

Our state of the art preamp, which was designed from the ground up to deliver the type of clarity, response time and tone that you've never heard before. It lets you hear the bass the way it was meant to be heard, by magnifying the characteristics the luthier intended the instrument to have. Hand built in California, USA, featuring genuine Neutrik connectors and aerospace grade chassis materials, the Bi series bass amplifiers are high end enough to be precious with, but tough enough to take the beating of decades of shows and rehearsals.

Drawing on 12+ years of building PA cabinets and amplifiers for the grueling conditions of touring and sport arena installations, Form Factor distills that tech into the creation of our cabs and amps. From the dual component polyurethane coating to military spec wiring and metal to high end Italian transducers and calibrated plywood of only the highest grade. The end product is a culmination of innovation and tradition, built by dedicated professionals in our factory in Garden Grove, California.
