    New FM3 user - question about studio monitors

    After looking at pics I don't think those are FRFRs. Just regular speaker cabs. You can still use. Just don't put a cab block/IR in your AX8 chain.

    The Line 6 cabs are FRFR speakers, correct? When using FRFRs leave the cab IRs on.

    Listening through the speakers on my MacBook. Sounds good to me. If that was pumping through a PA I think it would sound great IMO. Going through studio monitors versus FRFRs or a PA will greatly change your perceived tone. But again I hear good tone thru my MacBook speakers.
