T4s to Mac output low

I can record from the T4s to Garageband, but the output level from the Ts4 is very low. Nothing I do with the output level functions on the Ts4 seem to effect output. Has anyone successfully recorded Ts4 to Mac?Read More...
Hi Mike, I don't have a Mac, but this is how I set the levels for recording on my Windows machines using Audacity. Set the channel trim controls so your inputs are just flickering red. Then push the channel volume controls up well beyond 12:00 o'clock. You can turn the Master way down - this won't affect the USB signal. You can turn it off if you don't need live monitoring. You can monitor the USB output levels: Turn the Rotary Selector to Prefs Turn the Menu selection to Output Level Watch...Read More...

Why do I get feedback with the L1 behind me?

Why is it i get feedback when i have the L1 behind me? I have to have a monitor as i have my L1 next to and just a little out front to avoid feedback.

New Vs Used L1

I am thinking of buying a used L1M2B2 system. Other then the obvious blown speakers, sub, or cosmetics, are there other things I need to look out for? Speaking of speakers or drivers, how do I check the quality of the 24 speakers in the lower and upper column? Thanks to all for a great active forum.Read More...
Very useful - thanks!Read More...

S1 issue? Channel 2 substantially quieter than Channel 1

Hi everybody, I´m Bruno from Germany and just recently I bought a S1. I intend to use it as an universal "make-it-loud-unit" for my kemper, for my acoustic and microphone at house concerts and for streaming music via bluetooth and as a bass amp and... and. I have since 2 or 3 weeks and I´m very happy with it. Today I noticed that there is a significant volume difference between channel 1 and 2. If i put my Acoustic from channel 1 to 2 the signal drops quite strong (perhaps 6 to 9 db?).Read More...
Hi Bruno, Please let us know how it goes with Bose Support. In the meantime, if you don't mind - I'm curious. What do you run into your Kemper Profiling Amp? What kind of music are you performing? Thanks, STRead More...

Tyros 5 and S1 Pro system - buzz?

Forum: Keyboards
Hi Derek, I use the S1 pro with my tyros 5 keyboard. Great speaker but I do have a problem when I connect the Bose to the Tyros. If the bose volume is at 12 o clock I hear a buzz or hum in the speaker. I first had an unbalanced (TR) cable and then tried a balanced (TRS) cable but the buzz or hum remains. Do you have the same problem when connecting your L1 compact to the Tyros 5 ? Kind regards AlexRead More...
Thanks for the reaction. Do you use one or two cables from your tyros to the direct box ? kind regards AlexRead More...

recording from T8s to camcorder

Hi , I am new to this forum. Just bought L1 model II and T8S. This is for an Karaoke event where i am playing music thru channel 7/8 and have mics on channel 1-4 for singers. I would like to record the entire audio output from mixer (music + singers voice ) to Camcorder which is used to record this entire show. We are recording this way hoping to get the best audio audio quality instead of just recording using camcorder which would have audience noise etc. camcorder has 3.5mm jack. Pls help...Read More...
Hi Sri, What model camcorder do you have? As ST mentioned, it depends on what kind of input your camcorder audio input is expecting: mono, stereo, mic level, line level and if phantom power presence is present are all factors that should be known before connecting or you can end up with overdriven (distorted), insufficient, hissy or buzzy audio. If you don't have an onboard audio level meter on the camcorder, you'll want to do some test recordings to ensure audio meets expectations prior to...Read More...

Points East on 2 L1 M2's

Points East on 2 L1M2 2xB1 Terrific sound! Best the venue has ever heard!Read More...
To be honest we've just started using this set up with 2 L1's. Only a few gigs in. Have not experienced phasing issues yet. Using the L/R outputs will allow me to quickly route signals to either L1 base (rather than both).Read More...

Hi, Sri, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Congratulations! Here's an article for you. T8S to One L1 Model II Please click the picture above for details. Either cable is fine. Do you have a picture of the room? Why is the T8S so far away from the L1 Model II? How far away are the singers from the L1 Model II?

Connecting External Speakers to L1 Model ll

I use the L1 Model ll with subwoofer to support a four-person band in small to medium-size venues, along with a Behringer non-powered mixer. Has worked fine. I'll shortly be playing a room with its own sound system. As I prefer "the devil I know", I was wondering if/how I can connect the house "mains" to the L1...using the house mains as additional external speakers. Possible? I connect the L1 to the Behringer using a y-adapter cable...connecting the single 1/4" plug to the L1 and the double...Read More...
Hi David Siegel, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. There's no full-range line out from the L1 Model II to connect to the house mains. The connection will have to come from you Behringer mixer. We'll need some more details. Please give us a link to the owners manual for your Behringer mixer so we can give you an informed reply. Do you have any stereo inputs to the Behringer mixer? Are you sure you'll need to connect to the house mains? How large is the room where...Read More...

T8s Reverb issues - T8s Vocal quality

I bought the T8s new tonematch in October last year and even after applying the latest update am totally disapointed in the REVERB quality against the original T1 Tonematch. The version that I have on the T8s is v1.1.4. I have compared the Reverb on both the original T1 and the T8s using Plate - Medium set at 30% and 50% using Neuman KMS105 microphone. The Reverb quality is still not the same as the original T1 even after applying the update V1.1.4. The vocals quality is also much smoother...Read More...
