A Stereo Cab for Your Amp Modeling Setup!

The Mission Engineering Gemini 2 powered guitar cabinet makes gigging out with stereo amp modelers and effects a piece of cake. This birch cabinet features a pair of internal 110-watt Class D power amplifiers, each of which drive a 12" woofer and a coaxial 1" tweeter, providing you with extremely transparent full-range sound. A flexible EmPower EQ onboard gives you the option of choosing a more traditional sound with smoother highs. And it gets even cooler. In additional to its analog inputs, the Gemini 2 offers you high-speed USB inputs, so you can play backing tracks or tap into software modeling and effects.

Mission Engineering Gemini 2 Powered 2 x 12" Speaker Cabinet at a Glance:
  • Full range or guitar-amp range - it's your choice!
  • Ultra flexible analog and digital I/O provide tons of options
  • Roadworthy birch cabinet you won't regret taking onstage
Full range or guitar-amp range - it's your choice!

Several of the guitarists at Sweetwater were among the first to ditch their traditional guitar amplifiers and make the switch to some sort of amp modeler and a PA system. Full range PAs are particularly great when you want to play along to backing tracks or use a wilder set of effects. But we found that the added highs can run a bit harsh when you're going after more organic guitar tones. That's why we love the Gemini 2's EmPower EQ control, which allows you to blend between a flat EQ curve or a more typical guitar cab's present mids and rolled off highs. Between its 12" driver and its 1" coaxial tweeter, the Mission Engineering Gemini 2 lets you dial in the exact tonal response you need.

Ultra flexible analog and digital I/O provide tons of options

The Gemini 2 packs some mighty impressive I/O options. For starters, there's a pair of XLR combo jacks onboard for your stereo amp modeler or effects rig. Rotary effects, ping-pong delays, split clean/dirty amp rigs - you name it. If it's a 2-channel effect, then the Gemini 2 will make it come to life onstage. There's also a high-speed USB input for playback from your computer or other USB audio gear, and you can mix the digital and analog inputs together, making it super easy to play over backing tracks.

Roadworthy birch cabinet you won't regret taking onstage

As convenient as plastic PA speakers may be to schlep around, nothing packs the punch of a real wood cabinet, which is why we're sure you're going to love the solid sound of the Gemini 2's 3/4" void-free baltic birch cabinet. Covered in high-quality black Tolex and a basket-weave speaker cover, this Mission Engineering cabinet doesn't just sound right onstage, it looks like it belongs there, too. And if you're rocking an Eleven Rack or a rackmount version of the Kemper Modeling Amp, you can always stick it in a matching Gemini H 19 rack head (sold separately) and you'll have a matched set.

Mission Engineering Gemini 2 Powered 2 x 12" Speaker Cabinet Features:
  • The perfect powered cabinet for your stereo guitar amp modeling rig
  • 2 x 12" guitar cabinet with dual 110-watt Class D power amplifiers onboard
  • 1" coaxial high-frequency compression drivers provide full-range sound from 57Hz-20kHz
  • EmPower EQ control lets you blending between a flat or traditional guitar cab frequency response
  • XLR combo jacks provide analog input for your stereo or 2-channel amp modeler
  • High-speed USB connection provides input for up to 24-bit/192kHz digital signal
  • Use both analog and USB inputs simultaneously to play over backing tracks
  • Cabinet is hand made from 3/4" void-free baltic birch
  • Finished with black Tolex, black basket-weave speaker covering, and chrome hardware
Take your stereo amp-modeling rig on the road with the Mission Engineering Gemini 2!

Gemini 2 is the way to go!

While I did not buy my Gemini 2 from Sweetwater, I would have had they been in stock when I was ready to buy. I have tried using my Axe FX II through every combination there is. Whether it was my QSC K12's, two Mesa 1x12 cabs with a power amp, or a tube power amp with a 4x12 cab, the Gemini 2 is the best combination I have tried yet. Plenty of power, true FRFR, amazing construction, and the 'look' of a guitar amp. Active wedges were good, but the molded plastic had too much influence on the tone. The Baltic birch construction of the Gemini 2 just lends itself to a more balanced tone, the 'amp in the room' feel. It just seems to resonate better to me. Tons of headroom, you can play clean tones through this product at very high volume with no breakup. That's a must for me. It has all the bass and treble response as anything I have tried, but the treble is so much smoother and the bass is full, yet not overly boomy which can kill guitar tone. I hate making this comment as I don't want to offend anyone, but I also like my backline to look like a guitar amp and not a PA speaker. With careful placement, the Gemini 2 can be mic'd up just like a traditional cab as well. I'm very pleased and feel like this is the best overall solution for me, glad I chose the Gemini 2 and I think you would be too.

The Ultimate Active Cab for Modelers, (Kemper, Pod, Fractal)

I own a Kemper Profiling Amp, which the ultimate tool for recording, as it accurately reproduces every nuance of a guitar system, (pre-amp, amp, effects, cabinets etc). I had been looking for the best active cabinet to use my Kemper for live performances. Standard guitar cabs will work, but that adds too much additional colour to the tone. Powered Wedges or P.A. Cabs are better as they accurately reproduce the "profile" the Kemper captured. Those " in the know" look for FRFR cabs, Full Range/Flat Response. There are a lot to choose from,... various pricing, various shapes, various quality. I feel very confident in saying the Mission Engineering Gemini 2 Active Cab is the Porsche of FRFR cabs. It has the the best Specs around, it is designed by a well respected company in the Musical Industry with a long history of quality gear, it is LOUD, and it looks like what a guitar Cab should look like ! Guitarists know that looks matter. We spend tons of money on cool looking guitars. So why use a small powered wedge ! Sounds great with my Boss GP-10 guitar processor too. Select the 8 String or Low B 7 string guitar model with a Soldano or Bogner style amp in the Gp-10 and pound the strings. Not only is it the best FRFR cab ever, but it's also an audio interface. A lot of guys on the road are using Apples Main Stage 3 as their amp and effects system and the Gemini 2 is the perfect Active Cab to reproduce those presets. Couldn't be a better system for a Keyboardist using Main Stage either. I haven't begun to scratch the surface of what the Gemini offers. If you have a modeling pre-amp, or like to use the effect and amp presets in Apples Main Stage 3, Logic, or Garageband , and are looking to step up to the best Active Cab there is, call Sweetwater and get the Gemini 2.
