L2t Vibration And Rattling.... Noise

l2t vibration noise rattle bad

Best Answer Line6Tony , 13 May 2014 - 03:51 PM

We’re glad to announce that we’ve tested and approved a replacement fan for the L2 speaker. At the end of this week, our authorized service centers will be able to order the replacement fan and perform the repair. Alternatively, Line 6 can perform the repair if an RMA is generated. As both scenarios offer the repair under our three-year warranty, please ensure you can furnish a copy of your proof of purchase, a requirement for warranty service. Please see our Service Page for repair process details.

 

Thanks again for your patience and your patronage.

My L2m developed this problem - had it just over 3 months - only used it a handful of times - but it's now going back to the dealer and then on to Line6 for repair.  I am pleased they are on to this and have a solution.

I ordered an L2t through GC on April 26.  It's been on back order and is due to ship out on June 13.  Will it contain the new fan?

All new L2's will have the new fan installed.

Hi all,

 

My L2t had the dreaded fan rattle issue ... I had it repaired through Thomann & their authorized Line 6 repair centre (Beats+ Bytes) ... it arrived yesterday ... had a chance to test it last night & voila - the rattle is GONE ... very happy customer  :D :D

 

Well done Line 6!!!

 

Cheers,

Wolf

dboomer,

 

Absolutely delighted that Line6 has resolved the fan issue.  I just got two new L2Ms from Guitar Center about two weeks ago and they both have rattling fans.  I intend to return them and order two with the new fans.  How can I make sure that Guitar Center procures two new speakers?  Is there a serial number range I can request?  Thanks!

Serial number will not identify the new fans unfortunately.

Well, I finally received the L2t on June 20 (it was on backorder through guitar center since April 26).   It has the noise issue when I hit an "F" on my Takamine acoustic guitar.  My electrics & variaxes don't seem to make the noise or maybe I haven't played around enough yet to hear it.  I thought all new L2t's shipping out of the factory were going to have the new fan????

My L2M is due to be delivered back to me tomorrow - I have been told by vendor that Line6 replaced the fan - so I am looking forward to trying it out and confirming all is good!

My understanding is that all units shipped from Line 6 starting June 2014 have the new fan.

Just ordered an L2t from Sweetwater - need it for a small gig up two flights of stairs (!) next Tuesday. I'm told that this is one of the new ones, so I'm hopeful... Couldn't imagine carrying an L3t up the stairs. They need to come with a Sherpa. Or a Roadie. Anyway, intend to use it along with the M20d L3s and L3ts as a monitor. Oh dear, now I'm a full-fledged StageSource club member...

The L2t arrived from Sweetwater as promised, worked well!  I really like the Variax control on the L2t and L3t - they make my Martin sound like it should, and the feedback control is awesome.

 

The smaller L2t is certainly easier to lug up stairs and set up on a speaker stand. Putting an L3t on a typical stand is a little iffy for one person. The L2t is much easier.

 

Does anyone have a line on shorter speaker stands? The ones I have are Ultimate pneumatic stands - which are great... I also have a Fishman SoloAmp, which has a small stand made just for it. That would be perfect for small one-person gigs where I don't need a lot of height - but the post is too thick for regular speakers.

 

Thanks -

 

Larry

Just got myself an L2M a week ago and how would I know if mine comes with the new fan and not the remaining of the old stock? Wouldn't want to discover the rattle in the middle of a gig 6 mths down the road.
