The 2015 XITS X10
The newly designed X10 for 2015 is the result of over two years of research and experimentation for the perfect mid-powered combo amplifier. It combines the best elements of the original X10 and the Sadie X15. The circuit, Mercury Magnetic transformers, and cabinet have all been redesigned to produce the most amazing X10 in XITS history.
This design is a single channel 17-Watt Combo with three 12AX7 driven gain stages and a cathode-biased EL84 power section. This X10’s tones range from clean chimes to fully saturated drive. The master-volume (Volume 2) allows both the pre and power amp gain and levels to be blended, allowing unlimited combinations of tone and volume. The 2015 - X10 is equally at home on the stage, in the studio, or in the living room.

The X10 Cabinet has been designed to provide a big sound in a small package. Cabinet Dimensions are 17-0” Wide x 17.0” Tall x 10-1/2” Deep. The back opening has been sized and positioned to allow the perfect blend of sound from both the front and back of the loudspeaker. The cabinet is constructed out of ½” European Baltic Birch Plywood with a floating baffle so the cabinet resonates and comes to life as the amplifiers volume is increased.
