    I have a Helix LT and started out using a Yamaha DBR10 which I was very happy with. I recently switched to a Line 6 Powercab Plus, which gets you much closer to that "amp in a room sound", has the ability to emulate a number of different speakers, and can be used as an FRFR if you prefer your modeler cab or IR tones.

    Yes, my guess is those would sound different than a FRFR designed for guitar. The name pretty much tells you it's not a flat response speaker. However, if you plan to do a one-man band kind of thing where you have a soundtrack playing through the same speaker along with the guitar, you can do that. I suspect you would have to eq the speaker for the sound track and then eq the guitar on the modeler to get your tone where you want it and how you want it to sit in the mix. I think you can accomplish the same thing without as much tweaking with an FRFR, but I haven't done an A/B so not positive.

    What setup are you envisioning?

    I use the Yamaha Dxr12 with my Helix. Sounds great and plenty of volume. I haven’t tried others so I couldn’t really give a good comparison but I’m quite pleased with it.

    I've just begun using the headrush 1x8. I really am enjoying it for the size and weight. It puts out a nice flat signal and is as loud as I could ever need on stage. The price is incredible as well.

    Good to hear. I was wondering how the 8 performed. The 12 gets way louder than I’ll ever need. I was very surprised. I’ll give a plug to the PowerStage too: I was floored by how much sound that little box pushes through my 2x12.

    The prices of those Headrush speakers are certainly attractive and I’m sure the sound would suit me fine. If I get the job I applied for, I’ll be needing something quick.

    I'm using a Matrix FR10p with my Axe Fx 2 and a Matrix GT1000fx. It's lightweight and small but absolutely packs a punch and can keep up with anything at a gig. Sounds amazing too and is quite flat to allow me to use cabs on the Axe Fx. Would recommend.
