    For those who use amp modelers, what full range speaker do you use?

    Greetings,

    I might be needing a full range speaker for a project I'm putting together and I no less than nothing about these types of speakers. Can some forumites recommend some brands and models? Preferably fairly lightweight, but still with a great sound. thanks

    Daniel

    Are you meaning for live monitoring, or another purpose?

    Something to be THE speaker that people would hear from (as well as me).

    I'm looking at the Headrush FRFR just because it's price is reasonable. Friedman is 3x the cost. Usually you get what you pay for.

    I play my Fractal AX8 through a Yamaha DXR10. Started with an EV that I didn't like much. At some point I'll try an Atomic CLR Neo and a Xitone but I'm pretty pleased with the Yamaha.

    Not long after I purchased a Helix, I bought an Alto TS210. I wasn't sure if I'd like the Helix and use it and didn't want to put a bunch of money into it til I knew. Now 2 years later, I am starting a bit more to use it live. I typically go direct to FOH and use IEM, but keep the Alto in front of me with a little volume in case the IEM give me trouble. Now that I am using it more, I am considering an upgrade, just not sure which way to go either

    I also know nearly nothing, but heard about the Laney IRT-X which should do the job. Usually Laney has excellent quality for a reasonable price. Donīt know if available over the pond...

    While I rarely aim them forward for house sound, I run my Helix floor in stereo through a pair of QSC K8.2. If I don't bring those I just send it back mono for me through the stage monitor mix QSC K12. But a lot of folks love their L6 Powercabs for what you're looking to do.

    I now use 2 Atomic CLR Neo II's with my Axe FX III. I used to use a RCF NX12SMA which is now my back-up.

    Been using the original QSC K12's with my Axe-FX II for over 6 years now. No complaints at all. Yamaha HS8's at home when recording.

    For the money, can’t beat the Headrush 112. I also use a Seymour Duncan PowerStage into a 2x12.

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Here's another noob question: is there a difference between these speakers and say a .... Mackie or Yamaha powered speaker?

    Yes, a 12” FRFR will sound different than a near-field monitor even though both are ideally putting out uncolored sound. A lot of people do use studio monitors to run a stereo home rig and use a FRFR or amplified guitar cabinet when playing live. There are no real limits to how you can set up your rig, which is one of the biggest benefits. Really depends on what sounds best to you. The majority of musicians I know that use modelers live use FRFR on stage in addition to sending the signal to FOH.
