molul Posted April 12, 2022 Share Posted April 12, 2022 I recently switched from using a Fender amp to using a Headrush FR108 and I've been so happy in the rehearsals, but I played live for the first time with this setup last week and I'm unsure whether I used it properly. I connected the Headrush output to the club's PA, and I was told the output was way too loud (it was clipping with very little volume on its channel). I tried turning down the Headrush volume (it was at 50%, went down to 25%) and, while it stopped clipping, the Headrush was barely audible as a stage monitor. We didn't have much time to try other things, as other bands had to do the soundcheck, so I have this doubt: should I have just connected the Helix XLR output to the PA? I think volume would have been more controllable, but I would have lost the "full range flat response thing". Still, would it have been noticeable enough? Currently I'm thinking that for next gig I would keep the Headrush at home and just rely on the PA for monitoring. Do you think it's a good idea? How do you use Helix+FRFR monitor when playing live?
