    For some reason I had my CLR set on backline and went to Tilt -wow what a difference. Way more cab like with much thicker full rounded tone. The other 2 settings are way more fizzy and thin.

    Depending on the physical way that you have the CLR set up those switches really make a big impact!

    Unless you're using a CLR as a wedge, the free field preset will be the most accurate by far. Tilt mode compensates for a low-midrange suckout caused by the floor reflection that occurs with a wedge monitor on the floor. If you use it in a different scenario, you will have a response bump of about 6dB centered at 180Hz.

    If your presets sound thin when you use free field mode with the speaker elevated, the presets, not the CLR mode, are the cause.
