I was experimenting with using an L3m as a monitor (we're slowly upgrading our PA to StageSource but that will take a while...) Note that I'm using the L3m (so no integrated mixer).
I have an HD500 (with latest 2.2 firmware) connected to the DT50 via L6 link. The master volume on the HD500 was set to about 75%. I then tested the following scenarios
- L6 Link from DT50 to L3m -- full signal strength available, no issues
- DT50 speaker out XLR to XLR in on L3m -- no appreciable signal at all
- HD500 1/4" out to DirectBox, XLR to XLR in on L3m -- signal, but pretty weak -- had to turn the volume up pretty high on L3m so definitely a gain mismatch somewhere
- HD500 1/4" out to L3m 1/4" in -- decent signal, though for same volume position, seemed less than straight L6 Link
Any thoughts? My goal is to work out a transition plan to use the L3m for my monitor, take a feed from the mixer to balance in the rest of the mix and to use the DT50 speaker out XLR to send to the board. But now I'm wondering if the XLR speaker out works at all when using L6 LInk to connect the HD500 to the DT50.
