By themselves, or in conjunction with the M20d mixer, Line 6's StageSource L3t powered speaker system offers great sound with the built-in intelligence to make your live gigs that much more exciting.

With 1400 watts of tri-amped power and multi-band feedback suppression built in, these compact, lightweight speakers interconnect using the L6 LINK protocol to easily scale from using a single speaker with the built-in multi-channel mixer with digital effects for intimate acoustic gigs to multiple speaker rigs with an external mixer to fill larger venues. And the Smart Speaker Modes can tell whether you're using it for a floor monitor, pole-mounted, or as part of your backline for acoustic or electric guitars and automatically sets itself appropriately. So it's easily expandable as your live sound needs grow.

Built road-tough, with professional suspension points and pull-backs, the L3t is also great for installations in churches, clubs, auditoriums and conference facilities. And because it's so easily expandable, with other L3t cabinets, the L3m or the L3s subwoofer, your investment in great sound is a sound investment.

  • 1,400Watt,3way, triamped speaker system
  • Smart Speaker Modes for great live sound in any live sound situation

I have used these speakers in two settings so far and they have performed splendidly. The first was to announce the players and play the warm-up music at a soccer field and the second was a school dance in a gym. I was surprised how well they did outside as everything sounds great and was plenty loud all the way across the soccer field. The dance in the gym was good but I should have bought the subwoofers that match the set. I had to take the speakers off the speaker stands in order to get better bass. Admittedly, I was probably asking too much from 10" speakers to fill a gym the way my old JBL 18" subs did, but putting them on the floor helped reinforce the bottom end enough so that I will be holding off for now before I drop another grand+ on something I do as a freebie a few times a year. Have yet to try them out with my band, ColonBlow, but the size of the clubs we play are far smaller than a gym so I am sure it will be fine.

So, you're better off with a less complicated and better projecting speaker like the QSC that doesn't have proprietary accessories. We sold it and bought K12 replacement. Line 6 speaker is weak when it comes to distance. And I mean noticeably in a small place.

    Comments about Line 6 StageSource L3T Powered Speaker:

    I have owned and used 1 Line 6 L3T and also a Line 6 StageScape M20d mixer 7 months now. I am building up my PA as I can afford it. I bought the L3T and M20d at GC in Overland Park, KS.
    I use the L3T by itself as a guitar amp, connected to my M20d and Roland GR-55, and sometimes just straight guitar to amp, all mainly for band rehearsal. Also, with my home recording studio, it is my sole monitor. At my current gig, I don't use it—I just play through the house system, so I have no live gigging experience with it (yet), but I find that if I tweak a sound through it, I get the same sound through the big house system. I also play a set of Roland TD-4KP drums through it at home (I'm a beginner on drums). My guitar work is acoustic (6 and 12 string synth) and electric (Strat, Tele, and ES-335 sounds). I own one guitar, a Fender/Roland GC-1 Strat, so all these "instruments" are from the GR-55. I have to say that this L3T is the perfect companion to the GR-55, especially in regards to the acoustic sounds I get.
    The construction—this thing is built like a TANK, with a metal grill, hard corners, and a sturdy handle. If you bump along with it getting it to and from the gig, worry about your walls getting scraped up, but not this unit.
    In any mode, this speaker is LOUD AND CLEAR. In the analog configuration (no M20d or L6 Link) there is occasionally a low volume "hiss" that sounds a little like an air conditioner blowing—not very loud, and I think it is coming from my computer being nearby, because I don't hear it in rehearsal where there is no computer. All this goes away if I connect it to the M20d via L6 Link—the speaker now acts as a digital speaker, with virtually NO background noise at all. Very nice. If you go this route, make sure you get the 110 Ohm XLR cable; the regular XLR cables for mics may not work for you.
    And there is some confusion about upgrading firmware. Yes, you need an M20d to upgrade the L3T firmware, but the firmware doesn't affect the analog speaker sound at all—it just updates the L6 Link algorithm. So if you don't use the L6 Link, then you don't need any firmware upgrades.
    The best test for these flat response powered speakers is to get the best headphones you can find, and compare the headphone sound to the speaker sound. Ideally they would be the same. The L3T comes the closest to any powered system I tried. The inputs are line inputs, I think this means you need to have some power on the input to get the full volume and tone range. Just plugging an unpowered mic will probably not get you the results you want, but I don't know, I'm not a sound guy—I always port my mics through the M20d, and they are plenty loud, but there is power there.
    I had planned to buy the L3S next, but after playing the drums and GR-55 bass sounds through it, it hits the lows just fine for me—really shakes the walls, and nice and clear! I always have the feedback suppression on, and I never get feedback—we connect and pass mics right in front of it without worry—very nice. It has two input panels; one is for just straight PA, and the other is for instruments, and I just use the instrument side. Don't care much for the acoustic modeling—it sounds too "electric" for my tastes--but I have the GR-55 for that anyway. With the guitar and GR-55, I engage the -20dB pad and set the gain halfway, so I don't kill anybody—still very loud—I'm never up past 4 on my guitar volume. I set the EQ flat, and let the Roland handle the levels—the L3T is an excellent flat response system, so I would think it would be good for any instrument. With the other instruments in my band playing loud, this L3T cuts through all of them when I need to—no problem. Recently one of the other guitarists plugged in his Washburn N4 straight into it, messed around with the EQ, and got an amazing Marshall Stack sound—I had a hard time getting out of there, he wanted to play all night with it!
    By the way, this thing is heavy (57 pounds) but it has a great handle, and is easy to carry. I guess it's lighter than many other systems with comparable power rating. I probably could have bought the L2T first—but I had no idea of the power of these things! There is a bag with wheels—pricey, but probably worth it.
    In short—I highly recommend the L3T if you need a flat response amp, or you are building a PA—great sound, great investment, and you will have people asking—"Where is that sound coming from?"

    Comments about Line 6 StageSource L3T Powered Speaker:

    So I wanted to come back and update everyone on this very important information bit that I was NOT aware of before I invested in Line 6 L3s's and L3t's....

    There is firmware on these speakers and the only way to update the firmware is to have a StageScape M20d mixer.

    Now, it was in my original plan to buy this mixer (which I just did 9-11-14) several months after I bought (2) L3s's and (2) L3t's. So I'm not incredibly hurt by this information. However, you need to know this, if Line 6 does any enhancements to the L3 series speakers you will need the M20d mixer to push the update from. Or if you are having any issues with your L3 series it most likely may need a firmware update.

    I'm assuming this goes for the L2 series speakers as well.

    Note, I love this system and don't believe there is an easier, better sounding, versatile, system out there.

    Comments about Line 6 StageSource L3T Powered Speaker:

    OK, the first L3T I got had hardware malfunction issues so I exchanged it for another one. The new one works great! The sound quality is excellent. So far, I've hooked my Line 6 Pod HD300 to it as well as acoustic/electric guitars. Both sound GREAT! I was really able to tweak my patches on my HD300 much better now. Before I would use my headphones for building patches and those didn't translate too well once I would plug into the PA system at my church. The sound quality is very crisp, clear, and rich sounding. By far the best PA speaker I have ever used. I only gave it 4 stars because the first one I got had issues which makes me wonder about quality control at Line 6. Sound quality wise, I would say 5 stars. MusiciansFriend was Great with the exchange also!

        Just un-boxed a brand new L3T only to discover low, noisy output with only one speaker functioning. Called Line 6 tech support and verified it has a hardware malfunction. I'm going to exchange it for another one and try it again. I'll update my review when I get the new one. So far I'm really disappointed in Line 6's quality control....or lack thereof. MusiciansFriend has been great with the return policy however.

            Wanted to follow up my previous review on these, specifically about the packaging. Packaging was incredible! Each speaker is packaged in 2 seperate cardboard boxes. The inner box is what you would find if you picked them up in a store. Styrofoam was incredibly heavy duty. The outter box is industrial strength cardboard. I was very impressed and had no concerns about this L3T speaker working correctly when it arrived. Line 6 knows what they are doing. I will be buying more L3T's when funds become available.

              Comments about Line 6 StageSource L3T Powered Speaker:

              New product from Line 6 as of 2012. First attempt from Line 6 to enter the Pro-Audion FOH world. Not many reviews on this product nor many youtube vid's on this product. Of the youtube vid's I found, they all had only a few hundred 'views'. I was a little leary about buy this product.

              I don't believe there is another speaker cabinet out there that is as versatile, compact, can be flown, pole mounted, used as a monitor, has its' own mixer, L6-Link, and as has DSP. Features won me over on this product.

              I bought 2 L3T's and 2 L3S's, totaling 5,200watts. I use a Mackie 802-VLZ mixer. These L3T's weigh almost 60lbs, which I don't mind. Keep in mind it has seperate amplifiers for each speaker within the cabinet (I very much like!). Very, very solid wood cabinet. Sound is very good. I don't believe you can go wrong. Love the L6-Link built in software.

              Disappointed that Line 6 doesn't make finding the wave guide on these speakers easy. It's buried in their website. Here is a link (I hope it works on this page...).

              http://line6.com/data/6/0a06434d11974f555a86a4cda/application/pdf/Line6%20L3t%20Specifications%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf

              So I haven't had a chance to test these outside yet as it is winter. Very pleased though so far. I bought these to review to see if they would be a good fit for our churches FOH speakers; specifically the horn dispersion pattern (100 x 50 degrees), compactness, fliablity. I believe these will do nicely.

              Just a side note here; I don't know of a 3-way speaker cabinet that you can use to do sound in a gym and expect it to give you the bass response and chest pounding that a seperate bass cabinet provides. If you want low end and want a complete sound spectrum, buy the L3S sub's to compliment the L3T's.

              Can't wait to see what the merge of Yamaha and Line 6 produces! I'm ready for Line 6/Yamaha to produce a M20d mixer that has ethernet and line out's on the line inputs. That's about the only two things that are stopping me from buying the Line 6 StageScape M20d. Looks like a great mixer with incredible features, just need more hardware to go with the software Line 6; but I'm keeping my L3T's and L3S's!

              My Line 6 StageSource L3T's and L3S's sound great. I don't believe you will be dissappointed.

              I'm a musician, not a "sound guy", but I want to be able to have a very easy setup. I was using an el-cheapo Harbinger PA setup and decided it was time to get some real gear. I went with the whole smash and picked up the Line 6 StageScape mixer with these speakers. The L3ts sounded amazing and hooking it up to the mixer was very simple. I spent a lot of time just standing in front of of the two L3ts. These things are very versatile and have specific setups for PA, Playback, as a guitar amp, a monitor and I'm probably forgetting something. It also has a built in feedback suppressor / eliminator that works really well. Built like a tank but not too heavy. Rubber edges and ends. I was able to hear exactly what they sounded like way out in front of the speakers because I could use my iPad to control all aspects of the mixer. Buy this!

              I have had this speaker since it was released and it is amazing. My other speaker that we use in our practice space is a KW153 and it over powers the QSC in volume, clarity, and low end. Not to mention that its about half the size and weight of the QSC. I've even taken it on 2 tours and it held up extremely well, pretty durable piece of gear and the price is more than fair for the quality. The onboard FX are perfect for the acoustic player too. Not to mention that the speaker has a built in feedback eliminator and the ability to change the dynamic of the speaker's function to match whatever you're using it for. (I run all of our guitars and bass through it with Line 6 HD Pod Pros and the clarity is amazing) Having the option to use as a floor monitor is also a plus (We used it as our own monitor on tour... let's face it, most sound guys don't know what they're doing. I would highly advise getting this as a main speaker.
