soundmodeler Posted December 4, 2018 Share Posted December 4, 2018 I recently bought a Powercab 112 Plus, which I use with a Helix. Although for a while I was using an XLR cable to connect the two, I decided to buy a Line 6 Link cable as a substitute, mainly so that the Helix could control the Powercab without using Midi – something that I realize can’t be done right now, but which might be possible down the road. Unfortunately, when I connect the L6 Link to the Powercab, there’s an approx 30% volume drop compared to the XLR cable. I connect the L6 Link from the Helix “Out” to the Powercab “In,” as I’ve read that I should, so I don’t think I’m using the wrong outlets/ports. Both cables are 20 feet long, so the volume drop can’t be due to distance changes. I’ve turned off/on both the Helix and the Powercab and reconnected them a few times to see if that made a difference, but nothing. The L6 Link could be defective, but I can’t see any obvious signs of physical damage. The sound quality is unaffected - no pops, hum, hisses, or intermittent connection. Any suggestions about what the problem might be? Thanks. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
