Firehawk fx: xlr out to the pa mixer with phantom power

Recommended Posts

Quick question; can you run Firehawk FX's xlr out to the pa mixer with phantom power enabled channel?

Don't know what that would do to the Firehawk. If there is a switch on the mixing board's channel strip, I would recommend turning phantom power off.

Some smaller mixers have global phantom power settings.

Just curious why there is no info with regards to phantom power though?

 

It looks like pod500hdx had the built in protection but helix hasn't got it. Line6 saying helix won't get damaged but you may get hiss sound etc...

I don't think Line 6 even bother with this forum anymore.  It's more a user-user support channel.

Come on Line 6, prove me wrong and answer the guy's question!

For a quicker response, you'd likely have better luck putting in a ticket (or call)- http://line6.com/support/tickets

Especially if you want a more direct answer than waiting around in a forum for other users to answer.

 

The forums have always been more of a user support channel IMO.  I generally check the forums for my answer first, if I don't get what I'm looking for, I'll start a ticket up.

Forums: "Explore our forums where tens of thousands of other users talk about Line 6 gear and help each other."

I have opened a ticket with the Line6 support and I have a reply:

 

Hi,

 

Yes you can, it will not change the audio or damage the unit.

We don't recommend it for Line6 Helix, but Firehawk FX is no problem

 

Best regards,

Having phantom power from a mixer will not damage or distort the audio feed from the XLR outputs on a Firehawk FX.

Hooray.  My faith in humanity (and Line6) has been restored.
