Vibration Rattle In L2t Speaker Vibration Rattle L2m

Best Answer Line6Tony , 21 April 2014 - 09:09 AM

Hey Line 6
Too much heat on the ongoing issue with your L2t L2m L3t and L3m speakers that you deleted the post where hosts of people were complaining about the obnoxious vibration and ratte in our high end speakers. We are all looking for answers, came to what is supposed to be our way of communicating as a "Line6 community" and you removed it? WOW

As of now you have finally admitted it is a problem
BUT can't say what the fix is
OR when we can expect it

But deleting the post that everyone was following is definitely low.
Even if someone had posted a bad word or two you could delete that post only.

Please... I need to hear the reason for this latest move.

The original thread is back after being accidentally hidden, along with some other threads I'm still trying to find and reinstate. Please PM me if you know the titles of any such threads that disappeared. I'm sorry about any confusion or additional angst caused.

Hey Tom - I think you clicked the wrong link - Click the download link and you will get it without signing up.  I didn't have to sign up to upload or download - let me know how you do.  Or if you know some other site that I could upload it to let me know that as well.  IT sounds just like the other fan rattle in the L2.  SHAME ON LINE 6 for not admitting to it.  

By the way - I have noticed that on the L2 the rattle / vibration seemed to get worse, happening with more frequency, and at a wider spectrum of sounds.

We will all be part of a class action lawsuit down the road to get our money back.

Tudscamp,

 

We are sorry to hear this. Please contact our customer service. They can resolve this.

 

 

Best Answer Line6Tony, 14 May 2014 - 12:51 AM

 

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.

Thanks - I saw the Download "button" before, but since it was right underneath an advertisement, I thought it was to download what was being advertised.

 

Can definitely hear the buzz/rattle in the L3S....

Tuscamp, you may have forgotten that we have an open support ticket offering to repair any speakers you're having problems with under warranty. Please respond to me via the ticket so we can resolve your issue.

 

We offer this same level of support to any other customers experiencing issues with their Line 6 gear. We do not actively respond to community forum threads in terms of support, so reaching us at www.line6.com/support where you can open a support ticket or call us is the best way to resolve service issues.

Tony - I have not forgotten anything - The Dealer is handling, but it has been almost 6 weeks waiting for a return authorization.  The L3S has been boxed and ready to go since the end of July - waiting on L6.  (It is OK though, I am using the box as a very expensive end table in my living room)

So, another 6 weeks of wasted time and I would bet a weeks pay that L6 has not even started to work on a replacement fan for the SUB, even though you know there is a problem.  That will probably take another 8 weeks.  Then we will wait 6 more for the part to be manufactured and shipped, another 30 days for the repair.  Actually, let me ask this - Do you have a replacement fan for the L3T / L3M yet or are you still in denial on those models as well?

RIDICULOUS.  And sad.... That this is how the suckers that supported your experiment into the PA world are treated.

I feel your pain tudscamp.  I'm on my second L3t and this one has a sizzle/buzz during the decay of bass notes.  It's a slightly different noise to what you are experiencing, but I couldn't believe my ears, especially when I heard it in a replacement unit.  I need to give it another test this weekend to be absolutely sure.  At least it's not up to its anniversary yet, but we are 8 months through warranty without enough confidence to use it for anything other than noodling at home.

Tom, we will repair or replace your speaker(s) under warranty. Please contact me via your open support ticket so we can move forward. I have been waiting for you to respond in the ticket since 7/23/14 when I asked if you were moving forward with your retailer to repair/replace the speaker. I extended the same offer in the ticket yesterday, as well, but I have not seen a response from you in the ticket.

I'm not clear on who is waiting for an RMA: you or your dealer. If you are saying the dealer is waiting on us to issue them an RMA, please give me details in the ticket and I will resolve it. If you are saying that you are waiting for Line 6 to give you, as opposed to the dealer, an RMA, I will give you one immediately once you respond to the ticket and update your shipping address.

If you prefer for me to call you, I will do so as well. I want to resolve your issue with our speakers, but I can't do that until I hear from you.

That is horrible. I do understand the frustration....at least a little. I have had a few problems but no snow stoppers...almost, but m lucked out.

However, I have been fortunate enough to not have the speaker problem and have passed my year mark of using them all 3-10 times/month. L2m's, L3t's, and L3s's.

I hope they can address the problem much more quickly now that they know what it very likely is!

Tony

 

Just to let you know, the UK support team contacted me a couple of days after this, and subsequently collected, tested and replaced my L3t.  It was a totally straight forward process and I can't praise their responsiveness and helpfulness enough.  The replacement that I have sounds wonderful - no issues whatsoever.  Thank you for your help in getting this resolved for me. 

 

Cheers

Neil

Hi guys

 

Not sure if I'm having the rattle problem with my L2T but definitely is a noise of some kind and I can't use like that.
I only use it with my Dream Rig [JTV69/HD500x/L2T]

 

Here's a video so you can let me know…

 

thanks,
Charles

Sorry guys I'm a little frustrated after everything I had to go thru to pay for this rig...

Hoping you guys will lend me a hand and get me going since I have my first gigs in two weeks time.

 

 

 

Now I have the rattle more pronounced than ever and the fan goes crazy spinning… Is that the problem?

I only had this system for exactly 36 days now and for 21 days I was sick with Bronchitis and I didn't even touched it.

 

 

Here's the video… http://youtu.be/ywFppoerm_U

 

 

Is there some sort of serial #'s that you know from what batch they are having this issue?

 

 

 

Please let me know ASAP

thanks,
Charles

Hi Zap

 

No I haven't done anything because I just found out about it last night and still don't know if that's the known problem in the video I posted

 

What's the usual process?\

How does it works?

 

Could you please let me know with details?

thanks,
Charles

It's similar to the issue I had with my previous L3t, although for me it was only evident during the decay of lower frequencies.  Oddly, it didn't occur when I tested it with a bass, so I'm guessing that it was confined to a particular frequency band.  Line6 Tony kindly raised it with the UK support team who raised a ticket for me and got the problem resolved by replacing my unit.  Out of interest, I have asked for some feedback on what the problem was, but they are currently waiting for an update on the nature of the fault.  I I find out, I'll post here to let you know.  Check this page to find out how to contact the tech support team in your area: http://line6.com/support/tickets/

 

Cheers

I am considering pulling the trigger on a pair of L2T's.

 

They have to be ordered in from my local dealer who doesn't stock them.

 

Before I bring them home, I want to test them in the store for the notorious rattles that have been discussed in this thread, and if they are there, I don't want to take them (I'll ask for immediate replacements but then that's another wait and another test). The store manager/staff will be there to witness the problem if it exists. This will be helpful.

 

So then .... what would those of you who have experienced these issues do as a test on new speakers ??? The store has lots of guitars & basses. Anything specific that anyone might suggest would be greatly appreciated.

 

To Note: Up front we will not be able to afford the M20d so will be using an analog mixer. Not ideal but better than nothing. We did have a M20d and an L3t for a month to test and were quite happy with it. Didn't notice a rattle from the L3t but were't looking  for it either.

 

Thanks in advance for any and all "specific rattle test suggestions" ....

Pretty sure it is in this thread, or another one, exactly what was done to reproduce the rattle. I seem to remember a guitar with a loud F# or G? On the low E string would cause it at most volume levels. But scroll through this thread or the other one (search) and you will find it. I have been one of the lucky owners that hasn't had this problem. Or, over the year, I have not used it in the same way....which does include as a bass guitar cab, and a stage monitor with guitar and bass and vocals in it. So I am pretty sure I am safe! But I would definitely recommend what you are doing....test at store, because it is a known, and hopefully remedied on all being sold now, condition.
