Since its introduction 12 years ago, the WT-800 World Tour has been the number one choice of our touring endorsers. Our new "C" version now boasts an improved cooling system and more power. Conservatively rated at 440 Watts (4) per side with both channels driven, and 880W bridged into 8 and a whopping 1100 Watts bridged into 4 (with a minimum of 3dB of headroom), the WT800C is still the perfect choice for the touring professional. Standard features include: switchable automatic compression, mute, five-way semi-parametric tone control, electronic crossover, pre and post effect loops, stereo aux inputs, DI out with ground lift, level and pre-/post-EQ select, headphone out, tuner out, and a thermostatically controlled fan.
No-compromise, hand-built workmanship is Eden's m.o. The outstanding WT800 contains a tube hybrid stereo amplifier conservatively rated at 400 watts per side into 4(800W bridged into 8, 1100W bridged into 4) with 3dB of headroom. It also has has a -12dB input pad, switchable automatic compression, 5-way semi-parametric tone control, mono pre- and stereo-post tone control effects loops, stereo aux inputs, a DI out with ground lift, headphone out, tuner out, and a thermostatically controlled fan. It's the perfect choice for the touring professional who demands excellence.

Eden WT800 World Tour Bass Amp Head
The powerhouse Eden WT800 World Tour Bass Amp Head features a tube hybrid stereo amplifier design with a conservative rating of 440W per side into 4 ohms, 880W bridged into 8 ohms, and 3dB of headroom. If you need to move a lot of air, this is a bass head that will do it. The Eden WT800 bass amp head also has a -12dB input pad, switchable automatic compression, 5-way semi-parametric tone control, mono pre- and stereo-post tone control effects loops, stereo aux inputs, a DI out with ground lift, headphone out, tuner out, and a thermostatically controlled fan.
The WT800B delivers 300 watts RMS output @ 8 Ohms, 440 watts @ 4 Ohms and 550 watts @ 2 Ohms (per channel). In Bridge Mode, it delivers 880 Watts @ 8 Ohms and 1100 Watts @ 4 Ohms. All modes of operation have +3dB of headroom. This amplifier also features a thermostatically controlled, active cooling system with built-in thermal safeties.
FRONT PANEL FEATURES
Input Jack Designed to accept a standard _ inch mono phone plug. For best results use a high quality shielded cable to connect your instrument to the amplifier. The input is buffered and will handle standard passive, high level active, and piezo input signals.
Gain Control Regulates the first gain stage of the preamplifier and controls the amount of signal available to the system.
Set Level Indicator This light helps the user set the appropriate amount of gain. When set properly, the indicator should light on your loudest/lowest notes. Well go over this in more detail later in the manual.
Enhance Control Called the Magic Knob by some, this complex control simultaneously boosts the very low bass, upper middle, and high frequencies while putting a dip in the lower middle frequencies. It is flat when set to its minimum level (fully counterclockwise).
Input Pad Depressing this switch engages a 10dB pad. This feature is useful for basses that have a very hot signal level
Tone Control Section
These controls allow you to boost or cut the tone at the desired frequency. The spacing allows the controls to interact smoothly and musically. From left to right, the controls and switches are: Bass This traditional shelving tone control provides 15 dB of boost or cut at approx. 30Hz. The control is flat in the 12:00 position.
There are three sets of semi-parametric controls. Each set has a Frequency control (top knob) and a Level control (bottom knob). The Level controls provide 15 dB of cut or boost. The control is FLAT in the 12:00 position. From left to right, the Frequency controls have the following ranges: 30-300Hz 200Hz-2Khz 1.2-12Khz
Treble This traditional shelving tone control provides 15 dB of boost or cut at approx. 11KHz. The control is flat in the 12:00 position.
EQ Clip Light indicates clipping in the EQ section. Clipping is a Very Bad Thing and should be avoided at all times. Well tell you how to avoid this later in the manual.
Compressor Defeat Switch To defeat the Auto-Compression circuit, depress this switch.
Compressor Indicator Light Indicates compression is taking place.
Master Level Control Adjusts overall system output and stage loudness.
Bi-Amp Switch Engages Bi-Amp Mode. This mode is ON when the
switch is UP (sticking out from the face plate slightly). EXTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT engage bi-amp operation in combination with Mono Bridge. Doing so may cause damage to your amplifier and possibly your speakers! Also, it will sound REALLY BAD!
Balance Control Balances power between the two amplifiers: High (or Left) and Low (or Right). This is useful when using cabinets of different impedance &/or efficiency.
Crossover Determines the crossover point between amplifiers when in Bi- Amp Mode. In all other modes of operation, this feature is defeated.
Mono Bridge Switch Engages Bridge Mono Operation. To engage, push the switch IN.
Mono Bridge Indicator Lights to show that the amp is in Bridge Mono mode.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT engage Mono Bridge in combination with bi-amp operation. Doing so may cause damage to your amplifier and possibly your speakers! And, as we said earlier, it will sound REALLY BAD. Headphone Jack Accepts a standard _ inch stereo or mono headphone plug. It can also be used as a Master Output send to slave another amplifier.
Output Limit Indicators Light to indicate activity of the power amplifier limiting circuit, which protects the speaker system from severe distortion. These LEDs indicate that the amplifiers have reached their maximum output level.
DC Indicator When lit, shows that the low voltage power supplies are operating.
Mains On/Off Switch This switch turns the system power ON or OFF. The switch illuminates to indicate the presence of AC power present in the chassis. This switch is prior to the fuse. The light in the switch may flicker depending on local voltage conditions. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.
NOTE: The Mains Switch will illuminate even if the fuse is blown. However, the DC Indicators will not illuminate if the fuse is blown.
