Manufacturer's Description from Bergantino

The Bergantino forté HP takes bass amplification to a whole new level of performance. Just like an 8-cylinder vs. a 6-cylinder engine, the new 1200 watts of ultra-reliable, Class D power offers unprecedented “slam” in a lightweight, portable package.

Jim Bergantino, never content with the status quo, designed the forté HP  for the player who requires massive headroom and control over his or her tone. It delivers a formidable sound with ease, combined with an unprecedented level of comfort and confidence. This amp harkens back to the classic lead sleds that players have been longing for, an incredible thump without the weight…it has to be experienced!

Make no mistake, the forte’ HP will cruise along while other amps are begging for mercy. It has the ability to control every inch of the note with a quickness and command that will not only be heard, but felt!

About Manufacturer

Many brands in our industry claim to produce equipment of the highest quality and in a number of cases, many in fact do.

In relation to Bergantino Audio Systems however, that claim isn’t just a piece of marketing noise. With many industry accolades and a large number of respected professional users that rely on the brand’s products daily, it can totally be justified.

Founder Jim Bergantino has worked in a number of fields in his career – from hi-tech electrical engineering to high-end hi-fi and the professional audio world. After designing custom bass cabinets for many other leading brands, he went out on his own to start Bergantino Audio Systems in 2001.

To this day, our company remains a tight-knit firm which lets us focus on being an engineering driven company, rather than being a sales driven venture. This allows Bergantino to look forward with designs and take a unique approach to developing products. Many other brands in the bass amplification category chase very high quantities, which dictates that their product design decisions are subject to ‘unit cost’, rather than engineering excellence. All products are designed and engineered by Jim Bergantino, absolutely nothing is contracted out.

Jim sources the very finest custom transducers and materials for his speaker cabinets from all over the world. By doing this, it enables Bergantino to meet specific design and engineering goals for each product. He also continues to develop their own electronics with a ‘forward-looking’ approach, rather than just slavishly follow the crowd.

Bergantino Audio Systems is dedicated to developing and building the highest quality audio products and bass guitar amplification systems. We have received numerous accolades within the musical instrument products industry and continue to look forward with our designs and our unique approach to developing products.

We feel that our network of dealers is the finest in the industry, and we appreciate the relationships we have developed with them. Many others in our product category have made the decision to partner with larger outlets which dictates their design decisions are many times based on meeting price points rather than performance standards. Our staying small and independent offers you, the player, the best products available through the highest quality of design & manufacturing; built in the USA.

From the The Bergantino Audio Systems’ NXT (Neo X-Treme Technology) series that represent the next generation of neo technology speakers in the Bergantino lineup, to the HG Holo-Graphic 3D cabinets, to the groundbreaking forté, 1200 watt forté HP, and B|AMP bass amplifiers, Bergantino truly is world-beating in every respect, with the highest quality of design and manufacturing, all proudly built in the USA.
