The Amplifier was a device built by the Renegades to harness and enhance the power of the Tramulet.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
The Renegades used the Amplifier on Tri-Ceti after capturing all three Trindle elders, plugging the Tramulet into the device to greatly amplify its' power. In this configuration it was able to project a forcefield around one of Tri-Ceti's suns, darkening the sky (sic) before part of the amplifier burnt out. Cy-Kill was able to retrieve the Tramulet and get away before the device overloaded and exploded. Renegade Rampage, Part I Cy-Kill was later able to fashion a smaller, portable version with a built-in somnalizer, which he used to send those within the forcefields to sleep. However, he lost control of it when Matt Hunter was able to snatch two parts of the Tramulet off him. The Renegades' Rampage, Part II
