L1 Model 2 and Presonus Studiolive vs T4S Tonematch

Guys, I recently bought my L1 Model 2 with B2. I also bought Presonus StudioLive AR12 mixer but still waiting to receive it. I am debating whether to return this and just get a T4S as it is optimized for Bose L1. Any suggestions on whether I should do this? I don't see any single mono output from Presonus but it does have L and R Master XLR out. I am afraid that if I just use L-XLR to 1/2" on Bose Analog Input, I would lose sound quality. Is this true? What cable should I use to connect to...Read More...
Mac OS, probably the most recent version.Read More...

Mac L1 Updater Not Compatible

Hello, I purchased a T4s yesterday in Australia. I have followed the instruction in a video posted in another post , downloaded the L1 Updater for Mac , put it into a Bose file, but when I click on the T4 update I get the message " The selected file is not compatible. Please select a compatible file". I have gone through the process multiple times, restarted the computer etc. I am using an early 2015 MacBook Pro running Version 10.13.6. What do I need to do to solve it?Read More...
Hi egansong, I'm sorry about the inconvenience you experienced. I wasn't able to verify this over the weekend, but I checked in with Bose today. I have added the following information to the T4S/T8S Firmware Update Instructions "Some customers have reported an issue with OSX 10.13.x. Bose is investigating this. In the meantime please use a computer running OSX 10.12.x or earlier - or Windows PC running Windows 7 or later." STRead More...

Battery Behavior

I have two S1 Pros. When I got my first one, I charged it fully and used it for several shows (I'm a magician and I use it for a vocal mic and background music from an iPod). When I finished my third show, it was down to flashing twice which is supposed to mean 25% to 49% battery life. I didn't use it for five days and then turned it on for a show. It was completely dead. I plugged it in and used it with AC. I called Bose to see what tech support would say about it because that's not the...Read More...
Herve, sounds like perfect use cases for the S1. Let us know what you think of it after you get one. Enjoy.Read More...

BLUETOOTH WITH L1 COMPACT

Greetings all, is it possible to Bluetooth the L1 compact to the S1 Pro using the Soundtouch wireless Link Adapter? Basically take the output of the L1 into the Soundtouch adapter and then connect via Bluetooth to be able to use the S1 as a remote speaker???Read More...
Greetings, TequilaTom. Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. Unfortunately, no. The SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter is a Bluetooth receiver. It does not transmit audio via Bluetooth. You would need a Bluetooth Transmitter to do what you've described. A wired connection might be more appropriate. Bluetooth introduces signficant latency. That is, the sound heard at the far end of the connection arrives late. This is not a problem if the listener at the far end cannot...Read More...

Using looper multi-instrumentalist

I want to play loops through my Pigtronix Infinity and Bose L1/1S/B1 system. Right now I'm sending two keyboards, a vocal mic, a "guitar" (actually a Banjola going into a Trace Acoustic) and a Beat Buddy into a TouchMix 8, using the stereo outs to go into two Bose towers. I put the Infinity looper between the TouchMix and the towers. I'm getting lots of hum/hiss. But I'm looking forward to a lot of fun with this. Just set up the system today. I'll be experimenting with it a lot tomorrow.Read More...

Using L1 compact as monitor with T8S, and T1 L1 Model II, L1 Model 1S,

I have concert this Saturday. I went to see the auditorium and found out that it has terrible acoustics. The auditorium is wide compare to it's length. It's a sold out concert with roughly 250 people. I have one L1 compact, one L1 Model II with B2 base and one L1 Model 1S with B2 base. I have one T1 and one T8S tone match. If it's possible I was thinking of using L1 compact as a monitor and keeping Model II and 1S on each side of the stage in front. So: 1.) Is it possible? If yes how to...Read More...
Ok, first of all sorry for this delayed response. So I ended up using two L1s. They both were 20 feet apart each other but only about 8-10 feet behind performers. Everything worked out very well despite of poor acoustics of the hall. Although for future I may consider adding at least one feed back monitor. Musicians are still not comfortable without feed back monitor. Even-though they were able to hear just fine still they would prefer a feed back monitor. Thanks for all the help.Read More...

Can I use my Behringer Europro 800 watt powered mixer with my L1 Compact

I just received my L1 and am really eager to use it. But I heard that I cannot use my powered mixer with this due to the fact that it is a powered speaker. I saw on this forum that someone is able to use their powered mixer with theirs. Is there any way I can use these together, and how do I set it up? Thanks!Read More...

T1 Tone match

Hi Tima, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm sorry your T1 won't turn on. If you are close to a Bose dealer, please take it there for help determining if the issue is the T1 or the Power Stand or T1 power supply (if you have one). Your Bose dealer should also be able to contact Bose Support for you. Here is the contact information for Bose Australia. I would phone rather than write.
