Mission Engineering Gemini GM-2 · Guitar Cabinet
Mission EmPower Technology™ features multi-channel class D power amplifiers, active crossovers with variable EQ, and full range co-axial drivers, all designed from the ground up to work together as the perfect amplification solution for modeling systems.
Gemini 2 features a 2 x 110 W internal amplifiers, 2×12" low frequency drivers, with 1" coaxial high frequency drivers providing a stereo solution in a single cabinet. Gemini 2 works perfectly with guitar processors with stereo outputs. Get the best out of ping pong delays, and swirling rotary speaker emulations. Create dual path patches assigning different cab sims to the different physical drivers. Blend clean and dirty signal chains to get you ultimate tone.
Pro-audio ¼" jack and XLR connectors, high speed USB, and optional Class 2 stereo Bluetooth wireless interfaces connect Gemini amps directly with software based guitar systems on computers, tablets and smartphones, as well as dedicated guitar processors. EmPower EQ control allows blending between a flat or a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. A switchable stereo output allows you to connect two Gemini units together. The studio quality onboard digital audio interface features bit perfect class 2 stereo audio with, selectable sampling rates up to 192 kHz and 24bit. This allows you to play and record directly into your PC or Mac without any additional hardware.
Gemini’s sophisticated power system provides a number of benefits not found in traditional guitar amplifiers. 100 – 240 input voltage and 50/60 Hz compatibility means you can use Gemini almost anywhere in the world without requiring heavy and expensive transformers. Just connect directly to wall power wherever you are with a suitable cable. Power saving features such as a high efficiency power supply and deep sleep modes for internal components, mean Mission Gemini’s use a fraction of the power of a regular amp, costing less to run, and wasting less energy. The included V-Lock power cable ensures the power is correctly connected, and protects against the cable being accidentally pulled out.
The Gemini 2 will grace any stage or studio. Each cabinet is hand made from 3/4" void free, baltic birch with a high quality black Tolex covering, black basket weave acoustic speaker covering, and chrome hardware. Guitarists using a rack mount guitar processors such as the Fractal Audio-Axe-FX, Avid Eleven Rack, or Pod HD PRO can use the Gemini H, 19" rack head and build the perfect modeling half stack. The Gemini 2 comes with sturdy rubber feet on both the base and one side and can be used with the speakers in side by side mode for normal stereo, or vertical mode for PA style use.

Almost perfect solution to the loud end of Kemper.Noko440 on 28.04.2018
Sonically, I couldn't ask for more : sound quality is amazingly transparent and certainly loud.
The loud clunk that comes through the speakers on power-up, regardless of volume setting, is intensely annoying and is a really sloppy piece of design. The fact that all inputs/outputs and level controls are on the back may put some people off - not great for onstage tweaks. My only criticisms.
It's very heavy, but that's not surprising given what's inside - neodymium speakers could have improved that.
