Compact and easy to carry, the CUBE Street EX is a powerhouse mobile PA for street gigs and small venues, and it also excels as a personal monitor for performing on large stages. It features 50 big watts of stereo power, two eight-inch woofers, and two tweeters, providing outstanding sound in a very small package. Equipped with newly developed tech by Roland, the CUBE Street EX delivers superior performance from eight AA batteries, with clean headroom and punchy sound that easily outperforms other battery-powered amps.

The CUBE Street EX can be used with either alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries. Output power is adjustable in three levels—Max (50 W), Normal (25 W), and Eco (10 W)—letting you optimize battery life for different performing situations. The amp can also be powered with the included AC adapter.

The amp features an ABS injection-molded body that provides both high durability and low weight (under 17 pounds). A mounting hole allows the amp to mounted on an optional ST-A95 Speaker Stand. Via the Stereo Link function, two CUBE Street EX units can be used together to create an expanded PA with up to eight simultaneous channels, ideal for performing with bigger groups and/or for larger crowds.

With four independent channels, the versatile CUBE Street EX supports any kind of performing setup. The Mic/Instrument and Mic/Guitar channels are equipped with XLR/TRS combo jacks, letting you connect mics or various instruments. Each of these channels has its own three-band EQ and reverb effect, providing a lot of control for dialing in the sound. There’s also a Line In channel that allows you to connect mono or stereo devices, and an Audio In channel with a stereo 1/8-inch jack that supports Roland’s i-CUBE LINK for iOS devices.
