Huh?
« on: March 22, 2018, 10:07:01 am »

Surprisingly poor labeling for a company that makes fantastic products.

I’m referring to the way of labeling the ground lift switch.

Looking at retiring. Local PA market has shrank to 2 guys with guitars and bose l1 compacts or expecting full line array and 16 movers on stage for $300... no middle left going back to event DJ stuff, half the work for twice the pay.

Looks to me like it might cause confusion between is the triangle a directional symbol that means the up position lifts the ground or is the triangle a ground symbol that means the down position lifts the ground.

I read it as ground lift on output 2, up to lift.
However, it could have been made a little clearer if "out 2" was beside the switch and "ground" was at the lower end and "lift" was at the upper.

Agreed. Poor graphics. Disambiguation needed.

Also: The only control needed on the front/top panel is the stomp switch. Place Mic 2 Pin 1 Lift elsewhere. Like near Mic 2 connector. (See "Disambiguation").

Pretty obvious to me but ymmv.  You’d only hit the lift to fix a problem anyways.  You hit it and it either makes things better, worse, or no change.  Doesn’t really matter what it had been when you flipped it.

The unnecessary arrow is pointing to the the connector, but it’s easy to think that it is indicating the direction to push the switch to enable the “lift”.

The pic at Radials product page doesn´t look like yours. It has no arrow and the "Out2" and "Lift" has switched positions. Is Your box an old one and radial perhaps have realised the problems?

Pretty good looking paint for a Chinese knockoff. Less than stellar for the real deal.

Are you referring to mine? None are knock offs. I have 4 and they were all purchased direct from Radial over several years.

Of course!  I might need to label something in both English and French.  (Southerners are excused from seeing any humor in this post.)

So these are older.  When I saw the first post I thought maybe we were seeing the first products from Ultimate Radial.  Sounds like a tire company.
