    Trying to get the best sound using the Iridium's IR's.

    Is it better to have the HF off/Natural (no light) or the "Flat" setting with the white light, and what is the difference?

    Thanks for any help

    FLAT: This is the FRFR setting of the powercab. It includes the speaker and horn... and will resemble the sound of a PA or Stage monitor. This is the mode to use if you want to use the Iridium to the fullest. The sound would be the same/similar as running it direct to a PA or recording.

    HF Off: This setting turns the horn off and all speaker simulation in the power cab. This is just the sound of the "speaker" in the Powercab with no modeling applied. To use this mode, or any of the other speaker modes in the Powercab you should disable the IR's in the Iridium and just use it as a pre-amp. The Powercab would now be handling the speaker modeling.


    Those are the general approaches... it doesn't mean you have to stick with them ;)
