Signal Limit LED: Incomplete/ambiguous behavior specification

TX12 User Guide, Signal Limit LED: Incomplete/ambiguous behavior specification

I observed this on a TX12, but it probably applies to all Alto powered speakers.

The User Guide specifies that the LED “lights up” or “illuminates” when the speaker clips or distorts. It omits, however, the critical fact that the LED illuminates Green just above -infinity and turns Red when speaker clips or distorts.

I was just about to send the speaker to Alto for warranty repair, before I discovered this behavior through experimentation. If I were not already invested in two of these speakers and planning for two more, I’d switch to another brand.

This should be an unacceptable cost of failure ($ and time) to your customer and to Alto.

Fix this defect in the User Guide!
