Quick guide
Linea Live Systems
Xperience Systems
Thank you for purchasing an Xperience / Linea Live System and
welcome to the family of Fohhn users. This short supplementary
guide is designed to demonstrate the simplicity of working with
Fohhn Audio DSP technology.
When using the guide, it‘s extremely important to know which
particular loudspeaker combination you are working with (e.g. XS20 sub, with 2 x LX-100 tops.) If you’re not sure, take a look at the
speaker’s rear panel.
1. The right loudspeaker preset
Linea Live Systems / Xperience Systems
A variety of different tops can be used with each Fohhn active
subwoofer. Data for virtually every loudspeaker type is contained
within the Fohhn Audio DSP system. On the rear panel of your tops
you can find the name of the speaker, for example LX-150 or XT-33.
Using the DSP display, check whether the correct speaker has been
loaded as follows:
Important:
The special Power Preset can only be used with the following
speaker models: XT-33, XT-4, XT-5, LX-100, LX-150, LX-510, LX-601.
Do you have two or more active XS-30 or XS-4 subwoofers? If so,
you can use a Power Preset that enables the amplifier to deliver
more power to your top speaker. Please note: You can only use
one top per active sub, as the impedance should never fall below 8
Ohms in Power Mode.
If your next use of the system involves a single sub with several
tops, don’t forget to switch the Power Preset back to a standard
preset, otherwise one channel will not function.
Please read this manual carefully before using the equipment for the
first time and keep it in a safe place for future reference.
1. Switch on the device.
2. Using the arrow buttons, locate Presets.
3. Press the “Enter” button to confirm.
4. Using the arrow buttons, locate Loudspeaker.
5. Press the “Enter” button to confirm.
6. Using the rotary control (20), select the appropriate top speaker
e.g. XT-4.
Please read this manual carefully before using the equipment for the first time and keep it in a safe place for future
reference.
2. Fohhn active subs and their expansion
capabilities
The 10 current factory presets are listed below. Those in bold type
indicate presets that are best suited to the majority of standard
applications.
An additional passive subwoofer can be linked to the XS-10, XS20 and XS-30 active subs (but not the XS-4). The passive sub is
connected to the Speakon sockets ch2 (5) and powered by the XS10, XS-20 or XS-30’s internal amplifier.
Preset
1
Preset Name
Flat Linear
Description
A basic preset, suitable for the
majority of rooms without too many
acoustic issues
2
Far and direct
Enhances distance coverage and
intelligibility e.g. in noisy public
spaces or outdoor performances
For XS-30 only:
Display Function: Slave Sub on and off
An additional passive slave sub, the XSP-3, can be connected to the
XS-30 (Power System). Using the above menu option, select the on
setting. The next time you use your XS-30 as a “solo” subwoofer
(Basic System), remember to switch this to off, otherwise the
amplifier power to the sub will be limited.
3
Standard room
A universal preset for the majority
of rooms – fewer bass overtones
compared with Preset 1
4
American Sound
Loudness effect for quieter
performances. Increased bass and top
end at higher levels
Note:
To connect a passive X-sub (slave) to this output socket (5), you will
require a 4-pole Speakon connection cable. Passive X-subs cannot be
connected to an XS-4.
5
Fat DJ
Increased bass and top end
6
Tent
A preset that reduces the effect of
reflections from the tent walls
7
Hall with reverb For reverberant rooms such as sports
halls, multi-purpose venues, municipal
halls
8
Church
For rooms with significant
reverberation such as churches, multipurpose venues, rooms with domed
ceilings etc.
9
Speech
Significant low end reduction for
speech applications
10
ISO 2969
Softer / smoother sound e.g. for
cinema applications

If you are using an XS-10 or XS-20 basic system, without a second
(passive) subwoofer, the bass will run in mono and will only be
audible on one channel (ch 1). This is quite normal as the second
amplifier channel is reserved for the additional sub.
3. The right sound preset
Every room has a different acoustic. Fohhn Audio DSP gives you
10 easily accessible sound presets, covering a range of standard
options. Select them as follows:
1. Switch on the device.
2. Using the arrow buttons, locate Presets.
3. Press the “Enter” button to confirm.
4. Using the arrow buttons, locate Load Preset.
5. Press the “Enter” button to confirm.
6. Using the rotary control (20), select your chosen preset,
for example Preset No. 3, Standard Room
11-100
Note:
Although the 10 factory presets can be edited at any time, they
cannot be accidentally deleted. Should you alter a preset by
mistake, simply re-load it using the above steps. The original
settings will then be restored.
