Sound remains too digital
Paulo aus PT, 25.04.2019
Bought the Powercab 112 after reading some very positive reviews on specialized magazines, thinking it would help me to achieve live the fabulously clean and driven guitar tone I hear, on Audio-Technica headphones, from some of the Helix LT patches, but unfortunately, I was wrong...
For a long time I was looking for a speaker or amp that could reproduce authentic E-guitar sounds. As Line6 introduced the power cab 112 this seemed to be a really good idea.
Although, for my personal taste, this really good idea does not work because of the lack of a realistic e-guitar sound and some digital restrictions (that may be, because of my taste for tube amps). So I returned the quite pricy cab within a 30 days money back policy, thanks to Thomann fabulous customer service!
To get the best of both worlds live, I now use a Helix LT, as my main pedalboard, into a Fender Princeton 68' Reverb RI modded with a Celestion G10 Greenback.
I can assure you this:
It sounds much better with the Princeton than it did with the Powercab 112. It's just the real thing!

Utilisé en répète uniquement pour le moment.
Il est connecté sur un Kemper.
C'est tellement bien que j'envisage l'achat d'un second pour profiter de la stéréo, des effets, et remplir l'espace sonore avec moins de puissance en un seul point. Au niveau des réglages possibles sur le cab, je reste sur une position neutre, (blanc) de manière à restituer au plus près le rig du Kemper. La position inclinée proposée est appréciable en permettant une meilleure propagation dans l'espace. L'équilibre du spectre est bon et les nuances que je peux opérer sur l'ampli sont très perceptibles même pour de petites variations. Du son clair à super saturax... il répond.
La puissance est suffisante et peu de souffle en sort même en forçant le volume à plus de 3/4 sur le cab.
En clair, je le conseille à tout utilisateur d'un préampli-pédalier- multieffets complexe, ou ampli de type profiler sans étage de puissance, c'est un appareillage fiable et fidèle aux préparatifs que l'on peut faire au préalable avec un casque pour construire ses Rigs et ses performances.
Les moins : Le contrôle du volume et du choix d'équalisation à l'arrière.. peu pratique quand on travaille le son, et surtout s'il est en position inclinée, ainsi que son poids, ... pour le prix, Mr Line6 ajoutez-y des roulettes...

Line 6 power cab
Higo, 09.06.2018
Je l'utilise pour travailler, répéter (pas encore utilisé en concert)
L'avantage est qu'il sonne peu importe le volume, les simulation de HP sont satisfaisante (je ne peux pas me prononcer plus car je ne les ai pas toutes essayer "en vrai" donc pas de points de comparaison).
La possibilité de l'incliner est un vrai plus, le son est bien mieux diffusé et donc la qualité du son s'en ressent.
Concernant la solidité je ne l'ai pas depuis assez longtemps pour en juger mais il a l'air suffisamment solide.

Pour conclure je dirai que quiconque possède un processeur type Helix, Axe FX, Kemper etc ... devrait considérer l'achat de ce type de produit et il faut vraiment l'essayer. Les simulations de HP font quand même vraiment la différence avec une enceinte FRFR classique (bien plus dynamique à mon goût).

Gut, aber teuer.
chr1stoph, 17.12.2020
Ich habe einen Hotone Ampero, der in meinen Ohren besser klingt als zB der HX Stomp, obendrein besser ausgestattet ist, und trotzdem 200€ weniger kostet. Wie alle Modeler kann man den direkt in den PC spielen und aus den PC-Lautsprechern hören oder über Kopfhörer, aber nachdem ich mit dem Sound so zufrieden war, wollte ich das Teil auch live wie einen "Amp Head" einsetzen, und dafür braucht es natürlich einen Aktivlautsprecher.

Mein erster Ansatz war, das Setup mit einer günstigen Lösung zu testen, und da fällt zuerst der Headrush 108 auf. Der hat ja auch eine Menge positiver Rezensionen und kostet nur ein Drittel des Powercabs. Aber anders als anscheinend viele fand ich den Klang des 108 komplett unzureichend - selbst mit viel EQ-Akrobatik konnte ich ihm nicht die Zigarrenkisten-Boxigkeit austreiben, die man bei einem 8-Zoll-Speaker in einem kleinen Gehäuse ja auch vermuten sollte. Von FRFR kann man bei dem m.E. wirklich nicht reden, viel zu viele Tiefmitten und Tiefen.

Das Powercab dagegen klingt, wie man es möchte und braucht, Punkt. Allerdings ist es ordentlich teuer, und ein Grund dafür dürfte sein, dass es nicht nur einfach Cab sein will, sondern selber noch Klangmodellierer mit eingebauten IRs. Das liest sich gut, ist aber in der Praxis völlig unnötig. Moderne Modeler haben Dutzende IRs an Bord, mit denen man seinen Ton am Rechner ausgestaltet - wer braucht da noch weitere 7 im Cab? Ich hab die Powercab-IRs mal ausprobiert mit einem Amp-Patch des Ampero, und keines der sieben hat sich im Zusammenspiel annähernd so gut angehört wie die Kombi, die ich schon im Modeler zusammengestellt hatte.

Fazit also: Klanglich erste Wahl, aber wenn es eine abgespeckte Version ohne eingebautes IR-Management, aber für 150 Euro weniger gäbe, wäre das die Lösung.
