SD 800
No one complains about our 500 watt heads being quiet, but if headroom is what you crave, you will find it in the SD 800, our high-power head. As with the F1, a digital power amp gives you speed and clarity at high volumes. This head is the top choice for big-stage applications and for rocking out with very loud bands. Recommended for big cabinets (8x10, 6x10 or 2x15), or two-cabinet rigs.
All models are equipped with Markbass-designed digital power supply circuitry.

Minimum ohm load for all Markbass heads is 4 ohms.

Markbass amps/combos are manufactured to be sold and used in the country of purchase, and they are factory preset to that country’s voltage.
Due to homologation issues, the voltage may not be changed.

Rack ear kit included.
