Hallo, ich habe den Ausgang der Bose L1 compact verwendet, um das Signal über Cinch Out auf eine HiFi-Anlage zu geben. Die Bose war so eingestellt, dass beim Line In die grüne LED Dauerlicht hatte. Das Signal war so schwach, dass die HiFi-Anlage mit Maximalpegel gerade mal eben so zu hören war. Sollte in einer Seniorenfreizeitstätte einen 2. Raum ergänzend beschallen, aber reichte nur, um eine in der Nähe sitzende Person zu nerven. Als ich mit der Bose L1 compact über den Klinkenausgang eine...Read More...
Hi Ronny, I did some testing and it sounds like you and I are having a similar results. I connected my L1® Compact RCA Line Outs to a HiFi system. The output level is relatively low unless I turn up the volume on the Compact all the way up. The output of the L1® Compact Line Outs is controlled by the volume control. I think both of our L1® Compacts are operating as they were engineered to perform.. STRead More...

L1® Model II with B2 and T1® :Stops making sound for a few seconds then comes back on

I have been experiencing this exact problem with my L1, Model II with B2 and Tonematch. I have been trying to work with the Bose Tech Support folks for one year this month, and I'm no closer to resolving this issue. The Bose people as individuals have been great, but after at least six lengthy phone calls trying to troubleshoot this problem, I have come to believe that they know they have a flawed design, but are trying to dance around that reality. This "shutdown problem" appears to be an...Read More...
Update: I have been contacted by the folks at Bose, and steps are being taken to try to resolve my problem. I am optimistic that I can eventually put this behind me. I will try to update again later.Read More...

Tonematch settings

Hi, I'm new here and hoping I can get some help with the T1 settings. I just purchased the Bose L1 compact and the T1 a couple of weeks ago. So far i LOVE it! But i just don't know how to set up the T1 settings to get the best sound possible. I've been playing music for years and have had limited experience with sound. It's always been, turn buttons and see how it sounds. So I don't understand what the numbers mean regarding the highs, lows, mids, etc, and where they should be set. I know...Read More...
Hi Tony, Yes, the DI box i linked is the one I own. You've made some very good points here! I hadn't considered all the benefits of using the box. Especially the easy tuner access. I think I'll give it a try! I'm so happy I found you guys! Very knowledgeable and helpful! Thanks so much!Read More...

T1 ToneMatch connections

Can I run a Zoom drum unit through the T1 and where do I connect it?Read More...
Hi RDHmusic, Thank you for joining the Community. if your Zoom drum unit is like the Zoom RT-223 you can connect the L/Mono output to any of the T1® 1/4" inputs (channels 1, 2, 3, 4/5). Use a 1/4" Tip-Sleeve cable (standard instrument cable). Does that help? If not, please give us a link to the owners guide for your Zoom drum unit. Thanks, STRead More...

Which L1 product to choose???

We have a room that measures about 10m long by 5m wide. We'll have a keyboard, guitar and 1-2 mikes for singers, with at times about 40-50 people singing along as well ...

Connect TC-Helicon Voicelive Touch 2 to L1 Compact

I bought my L1 Compact today, set it up and connected my TC-Helicon Voicelive Touch 2 to it using the XLR Out to Channel 1. My Yiari is also running the TCH VLT2. It sounded GREAT! But then... I read the manual and it said to use TSR out to Ch. 2. I didn't feel like that was as solid or crisp. I had TM set to off. Does it hurt anything to go XLR to Ch. 1??? Help!Read More...

L1® Model II with B2 outdoors for 600-800

Hello,I have a qustion regarding an upcoming outdoor gig and would appreciate any input? This will be a rather large (600-800) picnic at a farmground.I'm not sure yet if there will be a small stage or just setting up on the grass. I use the L1 Sys2 B2. What I'm thinking of doing is: Set up the sytem behind me (say 12') and then run a pair of speakers in front of me,one on the left and one on the right.I believe I'll have enough volume and the Bose can act as my monitor also. I think I can...Read More...
Off The Couch posted: ST, i agree with Oldghm. Also,I checked out the Farm venue I'll be gigging at.It looks similar to the pic you sent of your outdoor gig.Except there will also be a smaller crowd at tables behind me. So,I think I may need to use the additional external speakers to point towards them. What do you think? On a side note,in between my sets the customer is requesting a variety of music from the 1950's til current times. Can anyone recommend a site where I can build a set list...Read More...
