Using Powercab in vertical position (on the side)

Recommended Posts

Due to limited space in my studio I was wondering if I can rotate the Powercab so that it’s standing on the side (vertically). I am afraid however that the heat sink might be designed to be in horizontal position. Has anyone tried this?

Haven't tried it.  Could theoretically overheat, but I assume it would auto shut off in that case.

 

That looks like a PC212+ right?  I'm not sure if the PC212+ speakers are tilted outwards slightly to help with stereo imaging, or if they both face straight forward.  If they angle, you might get a little weirdness sending half the signal into the floor basically.  Probably nothing to worry about though.

Thanks for the reply OF. I recently got a message from the official Line6 support confirming that it’s safe to do it like this.
