StageSource™ L3t is designed to be the world’s most versatile
loudspeaker system for musicians. Using six powerful DSP-based Smart
Speaker modes, the StageSource L3t output is optimized for a variety of
performance scenarios including front-of-house PA, floor monitor,
personal PA, keyboard backline, acoustic guitar backline, or with a
multi-effects guitar processor as a high-performance electric guitar
speaker system. Onboard accelerometer and pole mount sensors
automatically detect the speaker’s orientation and set the Smart Speaker
The 1,400-watt, 3-way, tri-amped speaker system and a dual-braced
tour-grade plywood enclosure combine to deliver astounding power and
reliability. The innovative multi-function design enables the L3t to be
the perfect loudspeaker in a wide variety of applications including
floor or stage-stacked, pole-mounted, horizontal as a floor monitor,
Virtual Tilt-back for instrument backline or flown with the integrated
M10 suspension points for installation.
In live sound situations where
two or more speakers are needed, StageSource products use a proprietary
digital networking protocol called L6 LINK™ to simplify set up.
Loudspeakers will automatically self-configure, pan stereo signals,
adjust Smart Speaker modes and perform system-wide optimization. Add
StageSource L3s subwoofers to the mix and the system automatically sends
them the summed signals and sets the crossovers. When combined, Line 6
live sound products form an intelligent ecosystem that sets up faster
and helps you sound your best.
Integrated Multi-channel Mixer with Effects
The L3t can function as a self-contained live sound solution. With a
full-featured onboard mixer including multiple inputs for microphones,
instruments, external mixers and MP3 players, L3t delivers all of the
tools you need for great live sound.
Orientation and Pole-mount Sensors
StageSource L3t uses an internal accelerometer, optical sensors and DSP
to accelerate setup and optimize the sound of your system. Based on the
information the system detects, it selects the right Smart Speaker mode
for the application, and automatically adjusts its performance.
For example, when the unit is powered on in a horizontal position, it
automatically selects Floor Monitor mode. This mode provides a slight
reduction in low-frequency content to counteract coupling when placing
the speaker on the floor.
If any "backline" mode is chosen (Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar, Electric
Guitar), the L3t then checks its orientation (via the accelerometer) and
looks to see if it is on a pole (via the pole sensor). If the speaker
is vertical and not on a pole, the L3t activates Virtual Tilt-back,
which optimizes the speaker tuning to achieve an upward tilt to its main
axis. This helps to aim the sound upward towards the performer's ears
when the speaker is placed on the ground. If the speaker is on a pole,
it doesn't activate Virtual Tilt-back because it assumes that the
speaker is elevated and aimed in the desired direction.
Integrated Feedback Suppression
Since feedback can ruin a performance, StageSource L3t
uses intelligent 12-band feedback suppression to identify the problem
frequencies and adjust levels without affecting the overall sound.
L3t feedback suppression continuously analyzes the audio signal,
identifying frequencies that have the characteristics of feedback
(steady frequencies with few overtones, rising in amplitude) and then
applies a narrow notch filter to remove the offending frequency. L3t
feedback suppression can remove up to 12 independent feedback
frequencies. You can set the feedback analyzer to one of three modes,
depending on how aggressively the analyzer will seek out potential
Multi-function Design and Scalability
Multi-function design combined with powerful Smart Speaker modes and
digital networking provides true scalability whether you’re using a
single L3t as a standalone PA or multiple L3t speakers as main PA,
monitors and backline. Add StageSource L3s subwoofers and customize a
configuration to meet your live sound or installation needs.
StageSource L3t is ready for whatever the road can throw at it. The
burly enclosure is constructed of dual-braced, heavy-duty plywood and a
tour-grade steel grille with protective screen backing that protects the
drivers from impact damage.
If you need to fly the speakers, each StageSource L3t features four professional M10 suspension points with a pull-back.
Scalable systems with L3t and L3m
In addition to the L3t loudspeaker
and L3s subwoofer systems, the StageSource™ series also includes the
L3m 1,400-watt, 3-way tri-amped, high performance powered loudspeaker
system. Designed to expand the capabilities of any existing L3t based or
third party PA system, StageSource L3m features balanced XLR/TRS combo
jack input, stereo auxiliary inputs, integrated L6 LINK™, and the same
multi-function design, Smart Speaker modes, and multi-band feedback
suppression from the StageSource L3t loudspeaker system.
