    I agree. It would also help to have a frequency response chart for these speakers so that we can get a better idea of how they actually reproduce input signals.

    The headrush is not a "guitar speaker" just because it has a little more mids. It's still a full range box, much closer to the Alto in flavor than it is to any guitar speaker. Conversely, the ALTO is not necessarily a better representation of what a good PA does because it has less mids.... it could actually be the opposite because of that. The big question here is "why" is the Alto "less accentuated in the mids"? Is it because the ALTO cuts them (with use of the contour) or is it because the Headrush BOOSTS the mids? IMO, you want the box the leaves the mids alone as much as possible... or is at least capable of setting up as such.

    Bonjour, exemples trouvés chez Amazon: Il vous faudra ce type d'adaptateur : https://www.amazon.fr/UGREEN-10350-Imprimante-Printer-DCP-L2520DW/dp/B00P0FO1P0 (câble à brancher coté Spider) et ensuite selon le type de port usb du smartphone/de la tablette: si Micro-USB : https://www.amazon.fr/UGREEN-Adaptateur-Android-Samsung-Galaxy/dp/B00LN3LQKQ si USB C : https://www.amazon.fr/UGREEN-Adaptateur-Femelle-Compatible-Samsung/dp/B072V9CNTK Je ne suis pas certain qu'il existe 1 câble unique pour aller directement de l'ampli su smartphone.

    Thanks for the info Law, I wouldn't run 48 volts Phantom power into my Helix and I don't care if it wont hurt it. Period. Of course, since I didn't pay for anyone's Helix but mine, you all may run whatever voltage you wish into it. ; )

    This is one of the reasons I really hate the term "FRFR" because the "flat response" part of that is so speculative. Other than the Headrush you'll see the speaker manufacturers tend to avoid this term. The reason being is this isn't the first time the "flat response" term has come under fire. Back in the 90's and early 2000's the term was casually used a lot with studio monitors, however every studio monitor would sound different with the same source recording, so how could that make sense? Well that's because what sounds "flat response" to one person doesn't sound "flat" to another. It's a very subjective term that really means a lack of artificial coloration that would normally be added in consumer grade gear for audiophiles in contrast to a more pure representation for the studio. One other thing that entered into the picture in studio work was the critical nature of how the speakers were positioned in and the room treatment order to have a natural response and not accentuate various frequencies. Roll forward to today's live performance powered speakers and this explains a lot about what they try to achieve. Ultimately the basic tuning of the speaker is reliant upon the manufacturer and the construction methods and materials used. However you don't always have control over the placement and acoustic treatment of the room the speaker will be used in. In live applications it's not reasonable that the speakers be tunable to room acoustics as that tends to be better handled by RTA processes at the sound board. But the speakers can adjust tuning for various placement/deployment situations and potentially what it will be used for (live music, recorded music, speech, etc.). So the value add for these speakers is in the DSP contouring options that will adjust for such things to address speaker coloration issues. Those DSP contouring adjustments automatically tell you these speakers aren't "flat" because if they were you'd be stuck with that response regardless of how you placed them and what you used them for. If I were to imagine some nomenclature for this I would probably elect to use Full Range Contoured Processing (FRCP) instead of FRFR as that's really more descriptive of what they're doing.

    One concern I have is that it's supposedly "Flat Response" but they also say it's "Tuned for guitar"... huh? Ya can't have both, folks.

    Hope Line6 take their time with the release and get round to improving the Routing options: eg. Send / Return blocks to and from USB, or Send blocks to 1/4in or XLR, and how more about Path output options: eg. Multi 2 "1/4 and USB", "Multi 3 "XLR and USB", or even better - a user assignable "User Multi" so you can choose which outputs it gets sent to. Much better for those of us trying to do fun stuff on our Helix with iPads or Computers and MIDI Guitar / synths / FX plugins / loopers and all that. Or just simply trying to send to stage amp via 1/4in and bypass the IR / Cab block without wasting a whole path output for it

    Same issue here... FBV3 dead after a FW update to 1.15... What should I do? You guys ever had or found a solution? Edit: "fixed" by restarting FBV3 n update mode (hold FS1 and A when plugging in the USB cable. The update went through fine.

    OK found fix. on iPhone go under Settings / Bluetooth under MY DEVICES tapped on the "i" (the information icon - letter i with blue circle around it) tap on "Forget This Device" now make sure that the blue Bluetooth button on your Amplifi amp has not stopped flashing on iPhone return to Bluetooth page and at bottom wait until Amplifi shows up under OTHER DEVICES at bottom** and then selected it. **it may take awhile to show up - make sure that the blue Bluetooth button on your Amplifi amp has not stopped flashing in the meantime. now it's working as it is supposed too!
