The LINE6 L3TM SPEAKER BAG arrived today.
I like to share some pictures with you and discuss a feature for these bags.


Overall the bag looks solid enough to handle the L3t speaker wherever I play.

But sadly somebody at Line6 missed to design a feature I did expect to come along with the bag:
 

A lot of musicians play HD Pods with the L3t speakers because it´s a great sounding and very flexible combination to play live with.

-- > Bass/Guitar->HD POD->L6->L3t --> :-))
 

When I ordered the bag I did expect that you can open the front of the bag
when playing a gig or jamming someplace as well as the top of the bag.
Why? Because you don't have to unpack the L3t speaker when plugging in your HD500 (via L6 Link Cable).


But as you can see on the photos: You can`t open the front. And you can´t customize the bag
because you then have to destroy the the speaker protection 
material that is inside the bag. 


Flip your screen an take a look at the photos.
Maybe you see what I am trying to say:

Will Line6 change this / add this feature if only enough of us are asking for this?

Dude, the bags are meant for transporting the speakers, nothing more.
 
If you try and play with the speakers in the bags, they won't get enough ventilation and will potentially overheat nor will the speaker be able to project properly (if at all) when in the bag.
 
As far as I am aware, the opening on the side of the bag is meant for the flip out handle on the left side of the speaker to stick out of for transporting the speakers around.............. not for the control panel of an L3t to stick out of so you can leave it in the bag........

+1 to what Octo777 said... I can't imagine Line 6 intended for the speakers to be left in the bag while in use.

Surely you jest.

 

I can't see the display or operate the keyboard of my laptop when it's closed and packed in my carry-bag, and I find it overheats in there. :o

Shure thing but it´ll be great to have the control panel of an L3t to stick out of so you can leave it in the bag :-))

I disagree an L3t overheats half way in the bag.

if you put a sweater on in the summer you would overheat. in electronics, you're instructed to allow ventilation to prevent overheating. where i worked when i was in the service. we kept the room so cold we wore jackets in the summer because the electronics generated so much heat. that's not to say the L3t would malfunction wrapped in a sweater but it's more likely it would.

Just how much trouble is it to take the speaker out of the bag?  The speaker was designed to ventilate if you don't believe it turn it on and play through it you will hear the fans start running.  If they are in the case there is nowhere for it to ventilate.  But getting back to my first question, I don't have the bags, YET!!!, is it really that much trouble to pick it up out of the case?  Like do you have to wrestle with it to get it in and out of the bag?
