L1 Compact: channel 2 unity gain position

Greetings! When connecting a mixer to channel 2 of the L1 compact via the quarter-inch TRS connector, where should the level knob be set in order to achieve unity gain, assuming a +4dBu output from the mixer? Thank you.

Hi Bruno,

The L1 Compact's volume should be viewed from the perspective of "set it to whatever's appropriate for the room and the audience."  Setting your mixer to output around its nominal level is the important piece. 

Once the mixer's level is where it wants to be, then just simply set the Compact to whatever produces the right SPL for the room. 

Thanks,

Nick

Thanks Nick for your reply - I give very similar advice to people who contact me on my YouTube channel asking how to set power amplifier levels. 

Regards, 
Bruno
