  1. Hello Recently got Helix LT and use Roland GR 55 with Firehawk FH1500. My findings with using this setup for live Gigs. Play in classic rock band. Thanks everyone who commented and helped with trying various setups. I have not tried any 4 cable method yet. Tried going out through 1/4 “ outs to FH 1500 and there is serious hiss noise as soon as you go over 50%. The amp clips and there is no headroom or volume, I know how loud this amp can go using it as standalone with firehawk effects. Sound is compressed and flat, could not get any real good sound cutting through mix, my experience so far. Decided to set FH1500 with no amp from clean section and from there go into cab setting and increase volume to 80 and above. Save the setting, plug direct from Helix 1/4” out to guitar in on FH1500. Set out to instrument. I connect my GR 55 to FH1500 monitor ins. Set FH1500 to Stereo and floor / wall / field. Wow sounds amazing with great seperation / definition from Helix and GR55, all speakers are engaged and at 50% will blow your head off. I really need the horns working on FH1500 when I use 12 string settings n GR55 for high frequencies. Just thought I would post because there are a lot of negatives online with FH1500 and helix that I agree with until I set this up. My opinion only but a lot happier with sound from FH1500 only problem is it still weighs the same.
  2. Hi Thanks for the advice, I was nearly going to get powercab, but surely FH1500 is better than powercab, plus I need my GR55 for acoustic. I have variax standard, but can’t get near GR55 12string and acoustic sounds, also use strings and choirs. Thanks John
  3. Hello Glen I have seen your videos online and they are great. I have not tried Helix and FH1500 at gig levels yet. I thought through the FH monitor ins it sounded and felt flat, need to try at gig volume. Another question, if going through FH1500 monitor ins with Helix, do I then route GR55 through Helix so that I get sound from GR55. My next project is to get Helix controlling GR55 through midi. Thanks for commenting. John.
  4. Hi Thanks for commenting. Have you tried the 4 cable method on using delays,reverb. Do you use instrument or line on 1/4 send from helix to FH1500. I have not had a go with amp at gig level, playing in classic rock band. In house line seems to give more of a boost but may be distorted more when amp is cranked up. I am going to try and use G10 wireless relay, receiver, plugged into guitar in on helix and cable out of guitar out to Fh1500 guitar in. I have found playing with 3 guitars on stage switching using G10 is great. Thanks John
  5. Hello, Took plunge and bought Helix LT thinking it would be good with FH1500, I currently also use Roland GR55 plugged into monitors in on FH1500 and this works well in live situation. I know people recommend going into the monitors in with Helix but there is no volume for live situations and not that impressed. I have looked at this forum and find that FH1500 is not the best option for Helix. I just wanted to post that I have now tried guitar out from helix into guitar input FH1500, set the the FH1500 to no amp and no cab using the helix for cab and amp emulation, you can get more volume if need using compressor on FH1500. Using this method you do get stereo/wide and the setting of wall, floor and field spread on sound. I have still to try 4cable method to see if sound improves but starting to sound like stage amp should. Has anybody had any joy with this setup. I am getting a bit fed up With Weight on FH1500 but don,t see why power cab is made for it when FH1500 is stereo and full range and there is no serious recommendations on using FH1500. Previous post I was disappointed that L6 had abandoned FH1500, which they have. I have bought a lot of L6 but find that certain a lot is promised but something is always missing. I also have G10 relays and still to see if this works with Helix. I keep persevering any hints and tips appreciated, i think using no amp and cab on FH1500 sounds best route so far.
  6. Does everyone who bought the flagship amp Firehawk Fh1500 feel let down. No updates in over year no upgrades on models. I have the Fh1500 and Fbv3. Where are the updates and upgrades?
  7. Do you have any recommendations on what type of castor wheels to put on Firehawk FH1500. Concerned about how well screws will hold on base of amp or nut and bolt type. Any advice would be grateful. When is trolley case going to be available in the UK.?
  8. Hello again trolley available Feb 2017, amp will still be wrecked by then.
  9. Hello After having a rant about there not having any corner protectors and insufficient handles for FH1500 I then got onto the trolley case. Advised by line 6 these would be available Feb 2018. Very good, amp will be wrecked by then, for goodness sake it is only a trolley and cover, what is the problem.
