I run direct all the time, don't even own a guitar amp. When I go to just jam I take my L3t and run vocal into one channel and guitar into the other. With the channels volumes at a bout 1.5 I am keeping up with the other live tube amps and acoustic drums. Guitar is easily sitting in the mix and the vocals are nicely on top and there is tons of room to spare. And to be fair, when I had my L2t I did the same thing and it also cut through easily. I prefer the 3 for overall sound just a bit bigger but definitely prefer the L2t for portability. But if you're already lugging a 50W Marshall combo you're breaking even in portability.
I got the L3m in the end, used it for the first time on Sunday at an outside gig and WOW....it sounded awesome! More headroom than you can shake a stick at. When we make it really big and play the 02 arena I might get the volume past half way!! I have been umming and erring about FRFR since the Stagesource speakers came out, now I'm kicking myself for not doing it earlier.Go to the full post
