A big weekend for the F1 system!

jdbassentertainment.com ·
The big show was last weekend where I have been perparing for... The F1 performed great! After this weekend I now know I finally have the perfect system for my live sound needs... (four F1 stacks) I set it up exactly like the Bose tech PJ told me to, with the tops staggered in height and all subs in the center (under the stage). Set up and tear down was a breeze and I had plenty of headroom! The 812 tops sounded clear even with an empty tent which was not the case with my JBL system I used...

F1 - No ToneMatch port?

Hi Joel, quote: Originally posted by Joelheck: A price schedule would be nice. I know they don't reveal any advanced info, but I would imagine a mixer of some sort is probably coming. Especially since they did not add a Tonematch T1 port. Same mistake as the L1 Compact. That has been a foolish oversight since day 1. I stopped holding my breath for a L1 Compact MII. It never made sense to skip it. I'm sure the pricing will be published soon. ToneMatch Port I've been thinking about this since...

F1 or L1 Model 2 for Home Karaoke

zhangz11 ·
I know it sounds a little overkill for a karaoke system using a pair of F1 812+ Sub or L1 Model2. I am just so into Bose product and they look good too. I cannot decide between these 2 since they are bit different. F1 812 has the powerful impact sound. L1 Model 2 sounds more elegant. Please help me choose and let me know the reasons. Price-wise, they are similar. If I go with L1 Model 2, I will use T1. However, the vocal input on CH1 has background noise when I tested the system the other...

F1 Outdoors

all the way up. I didn't see any sign of clipping on the LED on the back. Tests done with a Radio Shack Digital Sound Pressure Level meter, C-Weighted average. Test conducted in a light industrial area. There were a few buildings but I had a clear shot out to 175 feet (54 meters). Beyond that was a busying street. Interestingly, there was slap-back echo from buildings across the street, easily 250 feet from from the F1. By the time I was finished the testing I had gathered a bit of an audience

F1 Rattling

wavesound ·
I was just running some frequency sweeps through my 812's after hearing an audible rattle during certain songs and frequencies at elevated volume. I noticed it most with vocals that have presence in the lower registers and it makes the speakers sound poor. What I discovered is that one of my 812's distorts heavily around 119 Hz. The other 812 rattles quite a bit. I suspect that there may be some box tuning causing this issue. You can test it yourself by going to...

F1 sub. The sub i hoped for.

Hi all. i haven't heard the F1 sub yet, but i predicted its creation 3 years ago. Its a no brainer to make a quality bass reflex active sub, so we can get the B2 sound with any 3rd party tops we want. I have a pair of Yamaha DXR15's that i use for wedding gigs for my band. The B2's are over powered by the DXR's. So i am very happy to hear the creation of the F1's. Can't wait to demo them. There are great subs out there, the Alto BLACK sub15.

F1 Sub v/s QSC KW181 or kSub

We've been DJ'ing for a few years with the Bose L1 model 2 and B2's. On occassions, where additional Bass was needed, we've added the (QSC) Ksub or the KW181 and has worked out ok. My question is, based on what I heard at GC and some of the reviews here, F1 Sub really seems to be doing it.

Does it provide additional value over other Sub's out there...(since it essentially isnt made for the L1...

Anyone running that combo using either high or low DJ Preset I have been doing lots of testing and experimenting over the last month since purchasing the F1 sub. Since I already had the T1, I kept it in my rig and kept things as they were using the high volume preset which raises the bass substantially on B1 and B2, but in a different way on the F1 since it is voiced much differently and has it's own DSP built in. I am finding it to be too much processing, and it drives the sub a little too...

F1 Subs output Vol

Hi, I just added 1 F1 Sub to my system (So now I have 2 F1 812's & 1 F1 sub). I expected the sub to have substantial output @1000W & 2x10" speakers, but I can barely tell when it's running. The Vol is full up and it seems like it's doing next to nothing. I've tried it with prerecorded music, live practice and live band performances. Of course the sub is not going to pump out volume like the 812, but usually you can put your hand in front of a sub and feel it pushing air when the...

Hi F1 users, It's an exciting time and I'm sure many of you early adopters are starting to receive your F1 systems. It's come to our attention that the fit between the F1 Subwoofer stand and the Model 812 is a bit tighter than expected.

In order to alleviate this issue we suggest adding a small amount of any one...

F1 tops with B2's ??

Hi everyone, I am interested in how two F1 tops would sound with two B2's. I was wondering if anyone out there would be kind enough to test this idea for me. It would have to be someone still owning at least a Model II and a B2 or more L1 gear... Coming directly out of the bass line out of the 812 into a packlite would most likely sound lousy. So I figure just go out of the line out of the 812 into the Mod. II power stand and adjusting the balence of volume between the two. *As an option to...

to since it's FOH and we still can hear ourselves extremely well since we have that L/R separation.

Hi Guys I'm loving the F1's! However my ears have been telling me for quite a while now that when the eq switch on the F1 812 is engaged its cutting higher than 100Hz.
