    Help with my L2t/ Pod HD500X

    If you're going to want to play both electric and acoustic at the SAME time, then you're going to have to re-work your presets so that they sound good in PA/Reference mode - much like you'd have to do if using another FRFR system or going directly into the PA... While Electric guitar mode sounds killer for the electric patches (seems to be a tad bit easier for me to dial in - not sure why), if you want the acoustic and electric sounds to sound good simultaneously, you're going to have to put in a little work... but worth it (at least it was for me)
  2. So lately I've been taking my L2t instead of my Bose Compact for my Duo show. I plug my Bose T1 mixer into the back of the L2t and everything sounds great! But.... The Feedback Suppression doesn't seem to work. The last couple of shows, I've experienced some feedback and the L2t doesn't seem to notch it out. Is there a specific procedure I should follow? I was under the impression that it would be automatic - within a few seconds, but the feedback will continue for quite a while (I intentionally kept it going to see if all it took was a little more time than I was expecting). Any ideas? Thanks in advance! Tom

    Feedback Suppression on L2t

    I swear that the Feedback Suppression doesn't seem to work on either of my L2t speakers. Doesn't matter if I select green, yellow or red. I could not get it to stop feeding back unless I specifically went into my ParaEq and notched out the offending frequency, whether it was at 8k, 10.1k, 4k, etc (after using an RTA to find it). I've set it up to try and "experience" the feedback suppression, but the L2t just keeps on ringing.... :(

    L3S won't power on...

    So did you open a Support Ticket? Even though you're out of warranty, I've found that they still respond to Support Tickets. And remember, not all moderators are Line 6 employees....
  5. Does it still go L+R is you don't have it as a closed L6 loop and changing the speaker mode to PA/Reference? I guess I'm asking if you need the closed loop?

    Setup my 2 new L3t speakers

    I believe he's connecting the X32 to the Stagesource speakers via analog input (XLR/rca) and the L6 the remaining Stagesource speakers together...

    L3T's and a solo bass bin

    The L6 link and the Main Outs share the same signals and volume levels. If you want separate control of the subs, you'd need to Aux Feed your subs (use and aux output to your subs)... It has it's advantages in that you're only sending what you want to the subs... Hope this helps...
  8. Recently I've been experiencing some intermittent volume drops while playing my JTV-69. On both the magnetic and variax pickups... Battery fully charged, cables good, etc... Anyone else experience this? Thanks... Tom

    Can my luthier repair my JTV69?

    Sounds similar to the issue I've been having: http://line6.com/support/topic/13319-volume-drops/ Thanks for starting this post, some of the responses have given me some ideas to look at...

    Volume Drops...

    okay, just noticed something... When I have the volume rolled all the way down, I still get some sound coming through the amp - almost sounds like the banjo tone (and this is while using the mag pickups)...
  11. Wanted to post that Line 6 had UPS pick up one of my rattling L2t Stagesource Speakers for repair on May 23rd (just before Memorial Day). I just received notice that it is fixed and is being shipped back to me today! Awesome customer service and repair turnaround! As soon as I get it back and ensure that it is rattle free, I'll be contacting them again for return of my other L2t. Thanks Line 6 for the great service experience with the return and repair!

    Volume Drops...

    My first thought that it may have been the ball ends shorting. But I opened up the unit and didn't find any of them - plus I believe that was an issue with the older (first gen?) JTV's that had been corrected. Thanks for the suggestion though... Oh, and I thought I was in the JTV forum...

    L3t V L3m

    2 L2t's / L2m's will work just fine. I use them for my 7 piece 50s/60s Band. I use a pair of Behringer B1200D for subwoofers - easy to transport and great sound as well - I considered (and still want) and L3s, but at 85# and for the price, the pair of Behringer B1200Ds were more budget friendly...

    L3T's and a solo bass bin

    I use my L2t with a Behringer B1200D and have no issues with it. The B1200D has a selectable crossover and I've gotten some great results sound wise... Like you, I wanted to get an L3s, but couldn't afford it - plus at 83 lbs, I'm still trying to keep things on the lighter side... Hope this helps. Tom

    Feedback Suppression on L2t

    Thanks for the replies... I've been using the Bose L1 system, so I'm very familiar with "eating" the mic, and it is when someone isn't at the mic that the feedback is occurring. Yes, I'm going into the back panel - and the Feedback light is on green (I rarely use the side panels at the moment, which have their own Feedback light/button) - but if I recall it didn't seem to matter when I pressed to yellow and then red or even off... I just remember someone talking about how easy the feedback suppression worked and how they could "...put the mic up to the speaker and let it feedback and watch/hear the unit notching it out..." (paraphrasing here) I've got another show tonight and will test it out some more. Been trying to use my L2ts more, but having the feedback issues has been keeping me with my Bose L1 Classic... Thanks again for the replies!! Tom
  17. Sounds like you might have one of L2t's with the dreaded fan issue...

    HD500 and Quilter Tone Block 200?

    Well, I'm a bit biased, but the ToneBlock sounds much better to me than the Crate - much warmer and responsive...

    HD500 and Quilter Tone Block 200?

    The Quilter Toneblock works great with the HD500/HD500X. It's a clean power source that shows off the modeling effects of the HD500, as well as the Axe-FX, Eleven Rack, and other modelers. Makes for a really light and portable rig - just plug into an available speaker cab....

    Tone Building Tutorials

    I followed a couple of the links provided by Line6 Tony is his Tone Building Tutorials thread. I found that the following links resulted in: Video has been removed... Creating a Brian May Tone on the POD HD500X Creating a Brian Setzer Tone on the POD HD500X Creating a Jimmy Page Tone on the POD HD500X Creating a Keith Richards Tone on the POD HD500X Are there alternate links/new videos? Thanks! Tom

    Tone Building Tutorials

    Thank you!!!
  22. 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....
  23. Your link requires someone to join and create an account... any way to give us a link that is more "public" and doesn't require registration?
  24. I think I said the same thing... That's also why I asked if you were getting the backing tracks out of both speakers when the POD was disconnected - which you are, just not stereo. Since you're only trying to use the mixer on one of the L3t's, you should be able to get the RCA inputs to play on both L3t units via the L6 link. On my L2t's there is a switch on it that configures it for dual mono or stereo. Is there a similar switch on the L3t?
  25. You only have to use the bi-directional L6 link (connecting both L6 in/outs to each other) if you want to use the mixer on both L3t's, right? In other words, if you want whatever you plug into the Left L3t to be heard on the right, and vice versa, you need to use both of the L6 in/outs and connect to each other. Otherwise, if you just use one L6 out on the left L3t and link that the the L6 in on the right, whatever is plugged into the Left will be heard on the right. And then you just need to select dual mono or stereo... or did I miss something To the OP - if you disconnect the POD and just plug in the backing tracks into the RCA inputs and link it with the L6 from one to the other, do you get sound from both L3t's? If you are trying to use inputs on both of the L3t's and have them heard on both speakers, then you'll have to follow Silverhead's advice and not use the L6 to connect the POD - you'll need to connect the POD via an analog input channel. Hope that all made sense...
