T1 set-up support needed

I just received the T1 for my S1 and there wasn't a manual in the box. I have yet to find a good video tutorial to help me set up for vocal and acoustic guitar. I am not technically inclined at all so I am feeling very overwhelmed. Can anyone provide me with a link to a very basic tutorial that would help me? Thanks!Read More...

Buzzing from S1 pro connected with the L / L + R output of my Tyros 5 keyboard.

Channel 1 of my S1 pro is connected with the L / L + R output of my Tyros 5 keyboard. When I turn the keyboard on I have a buzz in the Bose which becomes louder as I turn the volume of the Bose up. So when I stop playing you hear an anoying background buzz from the Bose. Before I used an active subwoofer speaker and two satellites from Yamaha and had no background buzz, but the Bose sound is far better.Read More...
OK, I wiil try to use a balanced cable between the L/L+R on the Tyros and the channel 1 or 2 on the Bose pro S1. Cable as shown in this picture and let you know MRead More...

T8S mixer - reverb and delay

I have upgraded my mixer to T8s. Have been using T1 ToneMatch for many years. I have been experimenting with t8s but not getting the same sound and warmth that I get with T1. To begin with I have kept all the setting same as T1 on T8s; specifically Delay and Reverb. THat's my starting point and then I started tweaking to get the same sound as T1. My voice sounds very dry and it looses the volume if I a move even little bit away from the microphone which was not the case with T1. Any...Read More...
Hi shaime, That's correct. The Model II Power Stand Analog Input Trim will affect only the signal from the T8S coming through the Analog Input. The T1 coming through the ToneMatch port will be completely independent. STRead More...

Love the F1 Speakers

Hey! I'm new to the forum, but just wanted to express my appreciation of the design and product build of the Bose F1 speakers. I also have a question about purchasing another. I'm the worship pastor at a 500 seat fan-shaped building and we were previously running a mono mix with a pair of EAW speakers in the centre of the building. When we decided to move to an LCR mix, we bought a pair of JBL EONS for the left and right sides to supplement. While the stereo mix was greatly improved in the...Read More...
Great suggestion and sounds practical. Thanks for the advice...Read More...

Bose L1 model 1

Hello everyone. I am new to the L1 family but I am really enjoying it. I am a singer/songwriter and looking into the L1 model 1. My question is for practicing purposes at home, can the L1 model 1 be used with one of the pillars only? Thanks for the input.Read More...
Hi Eduardo, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Yes, you can use the L1 Model I without the top section of the Cylindrical Radiator®. We have an article about that here: Half Stack Does that help? STRead More...

S1 with A1 packlite power amp and 2 B1....

Just wonder if A1 packlite power amp + B1 bass module connected to the S1 Pro would work for that extra bass sound if needed? Would this combination work? Is it worth investing in A1 packlite amp (I do own L1 model II with 2 B1 bass modules already) to increase the bass frequency? any suggestions greatly appreciated...Read More...
Thanks ST, will follow the link soon. cheers....Read More...

S1 augmented

theonemanband
Hi, I know S1 fans like to hear of the way other users put this great little speaker to use, so I thought you may be interested in my gig on Saturday last; (after thirty odd years, my aim these days is to carry as little gear as possible)!😀 Small to mid-size bar venue, moderately noisy but I did not feel my one S1 Pro would quite “cut the mustard”. The following was to be very much a learning curve as it was the first time I had tried this................. I simply used my S1 Pro cabled up...Read More...

SM 58 vs E 935 with Bose S1 Pro

I am happy with my SM 58 through my S1 but was wondering if an E 935 would be better all things being equal. I am not an aggressive singer and I sing at volumes on the low side. I don't have a T1 yet but I will be purchasing one soon to go with my S1. Just curious if there is a consensus regarding these 2 mics with the S1 or if it boils down to individual preference. Thanks.Read More...
It's all a matter of preference. For myself I would choose any Sennheiser mic over a Shure, if talking wireless and I think that I would make the same choice for wired mics as well but my wired mic choice would actually be the EV ND76 . The clean sound of the Sennheiser mics with the durability of the Shure.Read More...

Major Vocal Feedback problem.

Hi, I have the L1 Mk 2 with 2 bass modules and ToneMatch T1. I am a solo performer (guitar/vocals) using a Line 6 pedal (guitar - channel 1) and a Shure SM58 into a TC Helicon Mic Mechanic 2 (vocals - channel 2) and backing tracks via iPod into channels 4/5. I am experiencing serious vocal feedback problems and hopefully you and your team can offer some suggestions as to a possible solution. The situation is that whilst singing, playing guitar and having the backing tracks playing there is...Read More...
Hi FCBlues, I've had a couple of helpful replies to my 'feedback' problems and they have been along the same lines as you are suggesting ie the TC Helicon is the cause in some way. So I am going to remove the Mic Mechanic 2 from the chain, (reset all my settings in the L1 mk 2 and reintroduce the Mic Mechanic 2) adjust/tweek settings as I go along. Thanks for your advise - I'll let you know how I get on. Don't mind if I have to get rid of the Mic Mechanic 2 if it rids me of my problem BUT...Read More...

Charging the S1 Pro

Hi After a gig last night and plugged my power cable into the S1 and connected it the mains to rapid charge the battery. I now get a orange light on the main volume control on number 1 channel This is in addition to the blue light that comes on when i first start to charge it but then goes off which I assume means its fully charged. When I unplug the power from the mains it goes off so many mains related Thank you KevinRead More...

Line out to F1 Sub first or F1 812 first

I was wondering what difference if any between connecting line out from the mixer to the F1 sub then to the F1 812 or vice versa?Read More...
Si... ST. Muchas Gracias por despejar mi duda. Parece obvia la pregunta, pero al no disponer del producto y la dificultad del hablar en otro idioma se me hace difícil. Gracias a usted me estoy enterando e informando de características esenciales que me ayudan a tomar la mejor decisión. Pronto tendré en mis manos un F1 SUBWOOFER para anexar a mis 2 S1 PRO y estoy seguro que gracias a su ayuda voy a poder sacar el máximo provecho a estos sistemas. Abrazo Andy.Read More...

Thickness of Padding in S1 Backpack?

Exactly how thick is the padding in the S1 backpack? Is it the same on all sides, the bottom and the top? ThanksRead More...
I’ve posted this several times on different threads. I wanted good protection for my S1 Pro. I found a padded slipcover on eBay (made from a mover’s furniture pad) that I use and put my S1 Pro inside the Arriba Cases AC-125 bag with the padded slipcover on. It gives a lot of padded protection for about $70 and the fit is pretty good. A friend of mine went with the Gator Cases GPA-TOTE 8. It’s a little bit heavier duty than the Arriba case but it requires adding foam in it since it is longer...Read More...

Case for two S1's?

I've decided the backpack is overpriced and won't work well for me as I plan on using two S1's. I've purchased two slip covers that cost me about $60 that I think work great but would love a case dedicated to two speakers. Outside of a small suitcase, anyone have ideas or know of a case made for two? Thanks .Read More...
I found the padded carry case for my old Mac Classic fits well for the S1. Only one at a time, but I knew that bag would come in handy one day!Read More...

bose s1 pro

I have recently bought a bose S1 pro can anyone tell me how to connect to my L1 compact solo and what type of connecting cable to useRead More...
Hello Philip Knight, S1 Pro to L1 Compact If you want the reverb or you are using the S1 Pro as a monitor, you can connect things like this. S1 Pro output to Compact Channel 2 (ToneMatch set to Line Level) using a 1/4 inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) connection. If you are using the S1 Pro as a personal monitor use the horizontal orientation. L1 Compact to the S1 Pro? You might do this in an oddly shaped room where the L1 Compact can not reach everyone in the audience. Then you can place the...Read More...

Sound cutting out on L1 Model II

I just purchased my L1 Model II with T4S last month and I have only used it twice and both times it cut out on me. The first time it cut out about five times during about 5 hours of play and this past Saturday, it cut out on me twice during about 4 hours of play. Both venues were outside and I was not using a generator. I am very concerned because I have a wedding to DJ in two weeks. I can't have this happening to me. I have not updated the firmware since I purchased the T4S. Could this have...Read More...
Hi Mcghee, I'm sorry you're having a problem with your L1 Model II and T4S cutting out. If the sound drops off for second or two and then comes back, this is probably an issue with the power. If the unit performs okay in a different venue (e.g. your house) then the unit is fine. Please see this article about L1 Model II Sound Cutting Out If you haven't updated the T4S firmware, you should do that. See: T4S Firmware updates The L1 Model II Power Stand, if new does not need to be updated. Does...Read More...
