    Best speakers for Helix at home

    I can only get a great sound from my Helix LT when using studio headphones. It is not the patches as I have downloaded patches and used the factory presets, but no matter what sound output I select the sound is never as good as my headphones. To date I have tried: Guitar amps:Marshall DSL20 and Blackstar HT5, using various cabinets and going through both the power amp as well as bypassing it. This gave a booming, flat sound. Monitors: KRK RP3: This came closest as it was warm but very contained. An Alto powered speaker: This was very poor. It sounded exactly like it is, a PA speaker. Creative Labs active speakers for use with a computer: These gave a great sound but the sound was breaking up. I am now considering whether to try a Headrush FRFR, Yamaha HS8 monitors or just more powerful active speakers even though they do not provide a flat response. Is anybody else having these problems and found a solution?

    Thanks to everybody that responded. I found a solution. I moved the Helix and the KRK monitors to a smaller room and found the sound was enormously improved. The previous room was not just larger but had a glass roof and French window doors, so the acoustics were very different and probably required more powerful monitors such as HS8s.

    Thanks for that. I meant pre-amp and not power amp. I will try turning the cabs off on the Helix but I tried this with another multi-effects processor (The Mooer GE300) and it didn't work well. Thanks again.

    I only use my Helix at home but I am disappointed at the sound going through my power am + cab, and my KRK RP5s are a little disappointing too, especially on the power level. Anybody any recommendations? I want a good stereo sound.

    Thanks so much for that. I spoke to a guitar shop here in the UK that has a digital music department and the guy there recommended Alto TS310s. I find the response of studio monitors to be a little inadequate so I am going to check out FRFRs.

    I have been using stock, downloaded and my own edited presets.

    Editing a preset on a PC

    Does anybody know if presets on software such as Pod Fram or Helix can be downloaded to the Spider V amps?
