Bluetooth receiver

Hello all, does anyone know of a reliable Bluetooth receiver that will plug into my l1 model 1 Bose base so I could play music from my cell phone during intermission? I have been playing a few occasions but after being asked to turn down my BIG speakers, I guess I just played my first official playing job...Thanks.....RT....Read More...
Hi rct01, You can get the Bose SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter . The unit comes with these cables \ and you would add two of these. and you'll be able to connect to your L1® Model I channels 3 and 4. Does that help? STRead More...

L1 compact

Can I use the L1 compact with only one section of the speaker extensions instead of two? Thanks.Read More...
Hi Kenneth, Thank you for joining the Community. Yes, you can run the L1® Compact with one extension. You will probably get better projection in to the room with both extensions, but you use one if you prefer. Bose Pro Community AdminRead More...

T1 settings

Hi Can anyone suggest which T1 settings to use for vocals, acoustic guitar and stomp box/porch board please? I have 2x L1 compacts and a model 2 with B2. 90% of the gigs I do are with 1x L1c and tonematch. L1c on a chair with one extension. I sit on a chair to sing and play acoustic guitar while tapping a homemade "electric floor tile" with my foot. Shure Sm86, Gibson j200 and j45, piezo on a floor tile. My T1 was repaired recently and has come back with factory settings. It took a long time...Read More...
Hi Bob, For the stomp box Attenuate means to reduce, so we're carving away the sounds we don't want. I would start here: The Level is - 10.0 (minus ten). We're removing sound - turning down the tapiness. Freq is 150. The simulator I have won't do exactly 150 Hz (that's why it says 151). There's nothing exact about this. So you can move this value up and down. Width is 2.00 oct The simulator I have won't do exactly 2.00 oct (that's why it says 199). This means we're reducing the sound in the...Read More...

Thinking of using another mixer with my L1®

Thank you.I was thinking of trying out another mixer with my Bose L1 modelI. Do you know the best way to connect another mixer too it? Are their other mixers that use the T1 type cable that I can connect the same way.Or is that proprietary to Bose? If there are not any other mixers that connect the same way, what would you suggest other than running another mixer into a channel on the T1? I guess my question is can I use another mixer instead of the T1? I'm not very technical and I would...Read More...

Bose Compact using both channels

Is it possible to use channel 1 for a condenser mic which will have an external phantom power source (mic is used to amplify hammer dulcimer) and then use channel 2 for a TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony G XT which will have an acoustic electric guitar and Shure 58 mic? No mixer. And is TC Helicon powerful enough on its own? Trying to keep things simple and light weight. I have a Yamaha mg06x I could use if need be.Read More...
Thanks!!Read More...

Hi AndreOhren, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm sorry you are having trouble getting the L1® Updater Tool to run on your IMac. I'm going to have to put do some research on that.

About the position of an L1 compact in an open stage

First of all, please forgive my poor English. Now, recently I bought one L1 Compact and one T1, - I'm very happy for this - and I use them in an open auditorium in Mexico City. When I read for the first time the generals of this equipment I was aware that the recommended use was indoors, and audiences for about one hundred persons. But surprisingly the L1's power and quality of sound was enough for almost three hundred persons on a stage that has no walls around, just the ceiling. The...Read More...

ToneMatch

I am wondering if I can use the preamp outs on channels 1-3 for recording these channels separately to a mixer?Read More...
Hi Bob, Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable PA Community. Yes, you can use the T1 Preamp outs for recording. Please note - these are post-trim only. That means the signal at the Preamp Outs is not affected by any T1 processing (Presets, EQ, Effects). Does that tell you what you need to know? STRead More...

T1 scenes

The Saint
I've had my L1 MII, T1 and B1 for around 4 years now and love it. I use it for electric and acoustic guitar, plus my vocals. I use an amp simulator for the electric guitar and when I need acoustic for the next gig, I've just gone into channel two (which I use for all my guitars) and changed the settings and EQ. I've now decided to save these settings using the scene facility. Yes, I know, it's taken a while for me to get wise on that...!! I have several acoustics, all with different style...Read More...
Following on from this, should I be using a preamp or DI box between the guitar and the T1? One guitar has an LR Baggs Lyric, one has an LR Baggs M1A and another has a Fishman piezo with an onboard Takemine preamp. If so, any recommendations...? ThanksRead More...

L1 Compact clipping

Hi Folks I did a gig last night with my two L1 Compacts either side of the stage, I had them both set at 12 o'clock so they were at identical volumes and I had the Tonematch set at 12 o'clock and I adjust the channels independently, which is usually how I work. It was a 70th birthday and most of the audience were on the dance floor so I was driving the PA quite a bit. The Compacts handled the gig brilliantly, there were about 150 people in and I know it was thumping because I could see...Read More...
Thanks ST I haven't explored the T1 since I bought it four month ago, I just set it to it's basic settings because I was anxious to gig my new gear, but I shall now spend a bit of time getting to know all of it's functions. I will check the Comp/Gate as you suggested. I am gigging in a restaurant tomorrow so I will try it out with it switched to bypass. So far as using both compacts together I will knock the second one back till the LED is a steady green, I had no idea about the input/output...Read More...

PC not recognizing L1

Hello, Lynn. Thank you for joining the Community. It sounds like you are having a problem maintaining a USB connection between the T1 ToneMatch® audio engine (T1®) and your PC. What symptoms are you seeing? Are you using your T1® to play audio from your PC? Recording? There are no drivers required. The T1® relies on the native Windows drivers. Are you doing things differently with your PC lately? Have you installed new software lately? Things to try: A different USB cable Use a different USB...Read More...

Source Selection

Hi Guys, I was getting quite frustrated with my F1s not sounding the way I expected them to and after a lot of back and forth. Vocals in music and movies were very unintelligible and everything lacked detail. As it turns out, the built-in ADC/DAC on my Behringer X32 was the source of all of my problems. I just switched to a MOTU 828es and it has made a tremendous difference. (I would not recommend the Behringer X32 with the F1s, based on the better audio performance I was getting with my...Read More...
Wavesound I concur that for a home theater/audiophile setup that I would not choose the X32, but then again I also would not choose the F1 812 due to the noise floor. (The L1 MII + B2 does not have the same noise floor so I would use it for home theater/critical listening) I only use the X32 and F1 812 for live sound and as such, I am very happy with both.Read More...
