I had the need to run a PAIR of L1 Model 2 this weekend.
Last time I did this, I ran dual mono and didn't get enough separation between the sticks and it sounded bad bad bad.
So this time, I set everything up, followed all the instructions for a proper stereo config and with 6 metres between them, and used a power supply for the T1.
I ran from a stereo DJ mixer to ch 1 and 2. XLR to TRS. Ch1 was presumed master out. Ch2 was set up for AUX out.
Here's what was wrong during the test set up.
- Volume controls on 1 and 2 unresponsive. Turned up, down, nothing. Only control I had was the trims, or the source DJ mixer.
- zEQ unresponsive. None of the eq settings made any difference on either channel.
- Master volume did nothing
- Mute buttons did nothing
- AUX level in the menu did nothing
I spent an hour trying re-reading the instructions thinking I'd missed something. I tried running ch1 with the ethernet cable and had a slightly different result but still no control on ch3 (AUX) beyond the trim pot.
But here's where it gets REALLY weird.
Pack up, load up, head off to a corporate event, and suddenly the T1 is behaving totally differently.
The EQ worked, the MASTER output seems to adjust CH1, everything worked just like the instructions said it would.
Is this a thing? Or is my T1 on the way out?
It sounded GREAT by the way. First time using stereo since the Model I, and I had so much headroom! I was initially going to use my dual F1 system but when I visited the room, I decided the L1 was best. Long narrow concrete room with a high ceiling about 2 floors up (huge mezzanine) and 450 guests.
