So, I've been thinking about getting lower output pickups so I don't saturate my X2 Wireless transmitter, but then I thought, why not see about increasing the headroom of the transmitter?

Or maybe an easier question, can anyone find a fucking phone# for tech support on Line6's website? :lol:

How do you know it's saturated?
It's got a "signal level" light on both the transmitter and the rack unit. Those must be some seriously hot pickups, as I used to absolutely pummel my active Schecter C-4 bass with the bass boosted and my X2 XDS95 (the cheap one) never maxed out.

Mine did too, and I maxed it out a lot, and it never sounded like it was digitally clipping. Just trying to diagnose the problem.

I'm using both EMG's and Blackouts and I haven't had any clipping issues either. Are you sure you don't just have the pickups too close to the strings?

The ToneZone in my XV500 was too hot for it. It didn't clip necessarily, it just hit the compression limit for the transmitter, and the compression in it isn't very good :lol:
