Tilting the Compact L1 forward

Since nowadays that I need to sit & play guitar/sing I was having a problem hearing good sound quality from my compact L1 when at home in a small room....I tried every which way & then I did this and found out it works well for me...What a difference...I tilted the compact toward me allowing the top of the tower to radiate downward....I tilted it about 2 inches by putting a piece of wood under the back of the compact base.It made all the difference for me....anyone else try this ? oh and after trying every preset in the T1 I ended up using ( for today anyway) the Taylor dreadnought finger setting for my Variax 700 acoustic guitar which also works good with the acoustic guitar settings on my Roland VG 99 synth...

Hi Dancing Dog Muse,

At least at home in that small room, while seated - you could run with a single extension.

You won't hurt anything - and it's not like you are trying to project to the back of a performance space.

Re: Tilting the Compact L1 forward

Hi ST,
yes tried that...did everything but turn the compact upside down.By tilting the compact with the 2 extensions I found that I can hear all the Frequencies so much better than in any other postion.It made that much of a difference for me,(i figure I'd post about it,maybe give someone searching like me another variation to try.)..before this I was becoming unhappy with the compact..(it still cannot compare soundwise with my classic L1 2b1 set up)...but each has its pros/cons...

Re: Tilting the Compact L1 forward

re: tilting Compact L1 is small room.

I suspect that the change in the reflections off the walls and ceiling had as much, if not more, to do with the improved clarity to your playing position.

The observation that a single extension did not sound as good as the tilted-with-two-extensions reinforces (for me) that reflected sound is a major factor in that room.
