In the situation where the user has subs connected to the mono out and normal pa speakers connected to the main outs and the user is using EQ/LPF/HPF as a crossover.

It would be very handy if the main and mono volume sliders could be linked to provide a single slider to adjust the FOH volume.

It would be even better if the mono and mains could be linked as a set of outputs sharing a single FAT channel (but with a setting for crossover frequency) as this would make eq changes and smaart room analysis a hell of a lot easier across the entire FOH setup.

I wish I could vote more often than once. This is a very important feature, especially if one of the advertised use cases of the mono output is as a crossover sub feed. I want to upgrade my church from our original studiolive 24.4.2 to the rm32ai + cs18ai, but I cannot if the mono can't be linked to the mains. I don't want to have to train my volunteer sound team to adjust two faders for overall volume, especially if the center one is labeled "Flex Master". Hopefully this is a simple feature to implement. Extremely important!

In the 24R there is no way to link but I see that the StudioLiveAI mixers have a LCR mode. Having a LCR mode with a relative slider and linked crossover point would be good. Having been a prior user of other mixers in this class, it is relatively straight forward feature to have LCR mode so that you can set the volume of the C output relative to the Main Mix outputs L/R and that you can configure the crossover frequency between the C and L/R output channels. It is a simple feature to use and one that probably benefit the users of the StudioLive III Console and Rack Mixers.
