It’s thinner than a Harry Potter or Game of Thrones novel… if we’re still using those benchmarks to compare things these days.
At NAMM 2024, Eminent Technology recently debuted the Model Twenty Two, a groundbreaking flat-panel active guitar speaker, marking a significant advancement from its predecessor, the Model Twenty. This new model is distinguished by its compact size, measuring 16 x 22 inches, boasting a thickness of just under 5 inches, and a lightweight design at just 16.5 pounds, making it highly portable for musicians on the go. It’s not just its slim profile that’s impressive; the Model Twenty Two boasts a powerful 350-watt built-in amplifier, capable of catering to a variety of audio sources like guitars, vocals, and keyboards.

This innovative speaker combines the functionalities of an amplifier and speaker in one sleek package. It is equipped with a full-range, flat response (FRFR) speaker capability, allowing it to handle different guitar amp modeling units and even serve as a small PA system with an output of up to 120 decibels. For added versatility, it includes a high-headroom clean preamp and a cab voice, suitable for both acoustic and electric guitars, as well as for use with external amp models. You can even run vocals, keyboards, or a CD player through it, effectively treating it like a super-sleek PA system that outputs up to an impressive 120 decibels.
Despite its high-end features, the Model Twenty Two is more affordable than its predecessor, priced at $1,699. That may be a lot, but think of how easy it is to carry around!
