Hey ST et al...
For a long time I have been trying to figure out a way to use the L1 Compact in the the collapsed position, but somehow elevated.
(More elegant, say, than placing the unit on a nearby tabletop)
The problem is that I have often been bothered by the separation of high and low frequencies when using the unit with the extensions. I am a singer and because of where I perform, I often have to stand quite close to the unit. The speaker array is usually pretty close to my head, as the bass unit is close to my feet - consequently - the sound often seems harsh and thin to me. (Even though I know that it sounds just fine to the audience!)
Hence I cam up with the idea that you see on the attached photo!
The unit is mounted on a 24" black stool (available at Wal-mart for $11.99) It sits rather sturdily, and even looks a bit cool too. (like a funky droid or something from Star Wars!)
A nice bonus, I noticed, is that with the unit off the floor, the bass frequencies are very warm and clear. (Usually they're a bit "woofy" and I have to turn the bass EQ to the 10 O'clock position)
Tacky? Maybe - but it works!
Hi Big Mike,
That looks nice. Have you done anything (rubber shelf-liner perhaps) to prevent the Compact from shifting around (vibrating off the stool)?
How about a luggage strap through the handle and under the seat portion.
Both items are available at the dollar store, and if it were me, I'd probably do both.
Finally, I would strap the cables to the bottom of a leg to reduce the chance that someone could trip on a cable and yank the Compact to the floor.
Good ideas. The stool is actually padded in the centre, which keeps the L1 from shifting around.
And yes - I use the cable ties to secure the cables to the bottom of the legs when doing this! All good
