The Line 6 Powercab 112 is a 1x12 active speaker system that delivers an authentic "amp-in-the-room" playing experience when paired with any modeler. When set to Flat mode, you simply plug your modeler in and play; Powercab 112 amplifies the sound of your presets as they are, much like a standard “FRFR” speaker system—but with the response and feel of an actual guitar amplifier.
Now imagine having an empty 1x12 speaker cabinet that you can instantly load with any one of six classic speaker types just by pressing a button. Setting the Powercab 112 to Speaker Modeling mode enables you to do just that—virtually—using a new technology developed by Line 6. Simply bypass the speaker cabinet models in your modeler’s signal chain and let Powercab 112 provide the sound and feel of playing through those classic speakers.
DESIGNED FOR GUITARISTS - INSIDE AND OUT
The Powercab 112 guitar speaker system for modelers looks, sounds, and responds like a professional guitar amplifier, because that is essentially what it is. In Flat Mode, Powercab 112 delivers a neutral frequency response from 70Hz to 20kHz with plenty of headroom. There is no need to adjust your modeler’s settings—your presets will sound just the way you expect them to. But what most clearly differentiates the Powercab 112 from other products is Speaker Modeling.
The sound of great amplifiers is due to the speaker as much as from the other components, yet until now no one has modeled an actual speaker driver alone, independently from the cabinet it happens to be loaded into. Line 6 has done just that by creating models of six classic and boutique speakers which drive a custom-designed hybrid coaxial loudspeaker. A lightweight cone and high-temperature 2" voice coil deliver the punch and dynamic response you expect from a guitar speaker, along with the wide range of a P.A. speaker. This design adds unparalleled authenticity to the speaker models, and consequently the sound of your amp modeler, preamp, or even your stompbox amp-simulator.
BUILT FOR GIGGING
The Powercab 112 features a highly efficient 250-watt power amplifier capable of producing up to 125dB Peak SPL—enough volume to fill a small club or medium-sized venue. And Powercab 112 is constructed to withstand the rigors of the road, while also being compact and weighing a mere 35 pounds (16 kgs). There’s also an XLR output featuring optimized microphone emulation for direct connection to a P.A., and foldout kickstands facilitate angled backline placement or use as an angled floor monitor.
THE CONSUMMATE CAB FOR HELIX
Although Powercab 112 was engineered to deliver superb results with any modeler, it is the perfect sonic complement to Line 6 Helix guitar processors, completing the chain—from guitar input to guitar speaker.
The Powercab 112 Plus active guitar speaker system offers all of the above, plus powerful advanced features such as a 2-inch LCD, 128 user preset locations, MIDI In/Out, AES/EBU and L6 LINKTM digital I/O, a multipurpose second input, a USB audio interface, and loading of up to 128 third-party speaker cabinet impulse responses (IRs).

Comments about Line 6 Powercab 112 250W 1x12 Powered Speaker Cab:
I have been gigging and recording with digital modelers since the day they became a thing in the late 90s. my preferred live performance setup is a digital modeler front end going into a tube power amp and real guitar cabs. that is the very best of both worlds; the flexibility of digital with the warmth and punch of tubes and real guitar cabs.
i've owned/gigged over 150 tube amps and various $$$$ rack rigs over the last 35 years and running my Egnater or Fender tube amps in 4 cable-mode (4CM) with the Helix is pretty much my favorite. now that i'm almost 47 and also have to set up all the PA and run sound at gigs, i just wanted less to carry and a faster set up.
Running Helix right into the Powercab feels much more like a real amp than any FRFR active speaker i've used. It does NOT have the percussive "knock" or punch of any tube amp, but that's not what it's for. It's a reasonably loud, lightweight, affordable & elegant amplification solution for modelers. Fast setup/transport and sleek. Definitely worth the money.
