I should be getting the remainder of my 'Dream Stage' fairly soon, and I was wondering if it was advisable to just have the L3t sitting on top of the L3s.  Is that practical, or should I get the poles to go along with it?

Should be fine - until somebody  leans against it. :(

Surprise, surprise !

 

I find myself agreeing with silverhead once again.

 

My feeling has long been that risking these big investments by "saving" on things like secure mountings and protective covers or cases for transportation is just plain stupid... 

 

...mind you, the good news is that stupidity definitely is an infinitely renewable resource.  :lol:

There are two things to think about. As already pointed out there is a safety factor. But there is also a question of coverage.

Ideally you want the tweeter (which is centered in the L3 cabinet) to be just above the head height of your audience. If you do not get it above head height then you may be blocking the highs from penetrating into your sound space. Because the wave lengths of the highs are smaller than the width of a human body your audience might just block them. So if your subs end up on the floor (which is preferred) and not up on a stage then poles are usually necessary.

Well I did it once...I had to keep turning them back straight as the vibrations from the subs were moving the L3m's...yes...I was a little heavy on the bass! Hahah

I have both the long poles and short poles, I use what the situation dictates.  It's a worthwhile investment... even if the L3t's are sitting on top of the L3s's it's worth it to have them "locked" on with the short poles.

I'm used to do it as well until I bought the short poles and then I bought a long poles also so that I would be able to do what DB was talking about but one thing that no one has mentioned which is the reason I am posting this is that there are pole sensors inside the pole mounts of your L3T, L3M, L2T,L2M speakers which I can guarantee makes a difference for that situation or Line 6 would not of done it I believe we had this conversation before and it had to do with EQ Ing I'm sure DB can set us straight. IMO FWIW get them I know it is another expense but if you've already spent as much as you have on the dream stage system you may as well get the accessories that go with them.

If I'm not mistaken the pole sensors really only come into play when the L3t/m is in one of the guitar modes.  If you are in one of the guitar modes and no pole is sensed, the speaker configures itself as a pseudo slant cabinet..
