Meticulously engineering and passionately designed by professional musicians, the Barbetta Sona 31C is the perfect companion for the traveling musician. Forget carrying around loads of gear – this high-performance powered speaker will save you lots of heavy lifting, without leaving full-quality, high-level sound behind.

The Sona 31C keeps it together on the low-end, with full sexy bass, bell-like clarity on the highest notes, and sparkling middle tones that sound real, present, and absolutely fantastic. It features unique, special design active line-level crossovers uniquely tailored to the Sona 31C. The ported reflex cab is made of high-tech, high density bonded wood fiber composite. Think exotic carbon fiber but with sound-friendly wood fiber. The power section is a fully discrete, patented, MOSFET based class AB design with sound quality a lot like the old tubes.

This is the real thing, brought up to date for 2015, with new & improved components. This speaker weighs in at a mere 35 lbs, but don’t let this lightweight deceive you. The 31C packs more power than you’ll ever need on stage.
