That's a strange operating voltage spec on the VL150. I had to look it up to believe it.

I stopped by my GC today as well and took an iPhone mp3 of last night's practice recorded on Sonar X3; meandering solo ambient stuff. I'm looking to pick up something expandable and easily portable, i.e., xtSA in backpack softcase, Pedaltrain(?) in one hand, and amp in the other. My impression was one QSC K8 >> one Alto TS 110A = one Bose L1 Compact > one VoiceSolo FX150. The QSC K8 @ $589 & 1000W seemed to have as wide a field of coverage as the $1000 Bose as I walked all around the ~ 40' x 50' room and out the door of the demo area another 30'. The $250 600w Alto and FX150 were narrower in a traditional cone pattern. There was much more clean headroom with the 1000w of the QSC. Although it fell well short of the much larger speakers/subwoofer packages I still felt it offered enough FRFR volume and clarity for my amp modeled GP-10/VL3/FTP IOS rig. I can't say if one QSC would hang with a zealous drummer but I can say that at ~20' and 3/4 vol I wouldn't have wanted it much louder. I felt the Bose struggled at higher volumes and one Alto provided more clean headroom but with a narrower field of coverage. Of course if outside or in a larger venue I could expand as needed adding a second QSC, a sub, or six Marshall stacks. At 27 lbs and 11"x10.6"x17.7" the QSC seems quite portable and looked to be a bit smaller than either the Bose or the Alto. I'll probably head back over to GC at some point soon to test with crunch and heavy distortion while considering placement and feedback issues further. A bit of searching for QSC info reveals that there are strong opinions about the units, on both sides, and that QSC has fallen out of favor with many. Nonetheless the QSC K8 strikes me as the best solution I've partially tested in a small form factor FRFR format.

Fair warning; I'm a home studio musician with next to no experience in front of live audiences so weigh that fact as you consider what I've said.

Thanks for the info! Bummer though, so close yet so far. :)

if you only have the buzz on certain patches, try using the EDIT feature to turn off the 'tones/mod/normal pickups' one at a time ...to figure out the source of the noise.

Would 12v@2Amps be enough to generate 42.5v@1.5A?

No - you need closer to 12VDC @ 6 Amps input  - due to the 85% efficiency of the Chinese DC -DC converter

Huh well look at that, thanks. But it seems like there's a variable missing in the equation?

One of my extra battery packs can output up to 12v@2Amps. 10,000mAh pack.
The voicelive 150 needs 42.5v @ 1.5Amps.

The converter says it can up convert 12v to a max of 46v, but I'm missing the Amps requirement. Would 12v@2Amps be enough to generate 42.5v@1.5A? And if so, I wonder for how long would it last? Up converters have always mystified me. Do they actually produce extra power somehow it just convert it from volts to amps based on a mathematical equation?

Ok thanks for the advice. Will check tonight.

I'll post my thoughts when I get it back.

Please do!

Be sure they are using a "post 2012" RMC electronics - as Rishard McClish updated many of the RMC PolyDrive PC boards mid 2011
