Being primarily a wedding DJ, portibility has always been key. A small car, the easy load in and set up has been great. The compacts took the portability to a new level. Cocktail hours, ceremonies, and then the ability to do smaller gigs like retail, office gigs, karaoke, backyard parties even easier. Also using the compact for fill when needed was great too. The S1 has stepped it up even more. The battery powered just adds to the simplicity. Had a few days this year when I did 2 gigs in a...Read More...

L1 Feature Requests

Hi John Power, Thinking about most of my gear. The power switch is usually located near the AC Power connection. Most of the time that's on the back of the device. I rarely turn my gear off in the middle of a session. When changing instruments or mics, I turn down the channel volume control instead of turning off the power. Would that work for you?

Hi Mahesh, Okay, this sounds good. I was checking to see if there was anything odd in your setup that might cause problems. No cause for concern here. Instead of Tape Delay and reverb, try this for your vocals microphone : Digital Delay Time: 100 ms Mix: 15% - vary up to 30% Fdbk: 0% - vary up to 10% You should have better intelligibility and move the vocals out in front of the backing tracks. What do you hear? Do you like it? STRead More...

Hi Tom, Just an afterthought. In the Compact Owner's Guide there is a reference to using the extensions on page 5. As this has caused discussions and uncertainty in the past I'll mention it here. "Note: The two L1® Compact Extensions are identical to each other. Either one can be used on the top or bottom, but if one extension is used, both must be used". There is no need to use both extensions. You can use 1, 2 or none to satisfy your particular needs in different situations. Hope that...Read More...

Creative L1 Compact Uses

Ok so it has been over a year since the release of the L1® Compact system and we continue to hear stories about the product being used from everything from military services to fitness classes.

So tell us; what types of creative uses have you found for the L1® Compact system? NeilRead More...

Set up the T1 for stereo

Hello everyone, This is a guide on how to set up a T1 feeding two separate sources for left and right, e.g. two model II's or model I's. T1 is designed to be a mono device, so the setup for stereo is a little complicated. But, once set up, you can easily control volume of the stereo feed from your stereo device (keyboard, DJ mixer, iPod, etc.). Please note - you will not be able to use reverb in this configuration. Most keyboards already have stereo reverb built in - you can use that reverb...Read More...

L1 Model I - Preset 3.0 Patch (DJ's only)

Attention DJ’s using the L1™ model I system, We recently identified an isolated issue that only affects DJ’s that are using Preset #58 (High Volume Pre Recorded Music) on the L1™ model I system. It was discovered that L1™ model I power stands with a serial number less than 042829Z72550001AC did not accurately contain the advertised preset #58. This preset is specifically intended for DJ’s playing pre recorded music at higher volume levels. Instead, it contained a flat EQ setting which is...Read More...

NATIONAL DJ ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT REVIEW

I just wanted to report on my first weekend of using my new BOSE system. I use the word power in parenthesis because two different meanings for the same word were revealed to me this past weekend.

L1 Benefits Statement

This is an example of some of the old "Gems" which are turning up since the introduction of the new forum software. The words are as true now as they were then. Here's an example. My wife had a birthday party in January and I set up the Compact+T1 so that I could play easily for our guests and be heard anywhere in our living room which is L-shaped and about 50m2. Due to illnesses and bad weather forecast (snow) the party wasn't too big an affair and I could have played without amplification.Read More...

Steve Miller Band and Cylindrical Radiator(r) speakers

Some of us in the Live Music Technology Group recently went to see and hear the Steve Miller Band play at the Tweeter Center in Boston, a summer shed holding about 18,000 people. Steve has purchased a number of Cylindrical Radiator speakers over the past 18 months and has written us to tell us of his experiences with them. (With his permission, we've posted these HERE ).

Even better than the 'patented' solution in the above post would be a simple wooden doorstop, because you could adjust the angle of declination of the sound pattern. Line array loudspeakers oriented vertically are 'aimed' to play to an audience that is an infinite distance away. To aim your L1 in such a way that plays with full volume to all rows of the audience, put a laser pointer on top of your L1 (or imagine one there) and insert the doorstop underneath the rear edge of the Power Stand...Read More...

Hi, Cal (Elmer). What model are your current Bose speakers? The SoundTouch Bluetooth WiFi adapter requires a Bluetooth transmitter from the audio source. That might be a phone, tablet, or computer.

Hi Amy, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm sorry for not replying sooner. A big band can be loud or very loud depending on the size of the audience.

Is there a separate PA system for some or all of the performers in the big band or are they all running without amplification? Thanks, STRead More...

Rack mounting the T8s

Hi, has anyone successfully rack-mounted the T8s? I would like to incorporate it at the top of a small unit with radio mics and in ear systems underneath. I am hoping to save time setting up/packing down at gigs by having a table top style unit that just plugs in to one power source (rather than my current process of plugging in many separate units/XLRs etc.) I see the base of the unit has a screw for a tripod but this wouldn’t be easily incorporated in to a standard rack mount. I’m...Read More...
P.S. #1 option: I forgot to mention that the slant-top rackmount enclosures enable you to (1) Adjust the mixer's slant toward you however you want, (2) Un-slant your mixer to lay it flat on top of your enclosure after the gig, plus (3) Close a latchable, truma-resistant lid over the top of your mixer to protect it after (and before) your gigs.Read More...

Powering T1 from battery.

Hi there I have L1M2 B2 +T1 and S1 Pro I have a Behringer 1002B battery mixer for extra channels when using S1 When using ac power I prefer using T1 with external power supply over 1002B with S1 Is there a way of powering the T1 using a battery?

I have just bought the UK spec version of the power pack ST linked above, after a very brief test (running my AER Compact 60 and my XR12 mixer) it is excellent, my earlier modified sine wave power pack introduced some buzzing and noise, quite low but I became concerned after reading the Bose article. The new one is absolutely silent in that respect with only the (pretty quiet) fan making a little acoustic noise (nothing that would worry me on a gig though). Looks like a good buy. ...Read More...

Monitoring with Reverb

HI folks, It's been a while so hope all are well. I've been using my L1 Model 2 (and more recently my new L1 compact) for solo gigs and because it's mainly me adding vocals to backing tracks, I've never really needed to monitor myself in anyway but as the system is intended - either in front or to the side. However I've been playing some very noisy receptions recently and find occasionally I've gone out of tune as am not hearing the track correctly. This NEVER happens to me at performance...Read More...
Monitors typically are NOT for hearing what is going to the house. And the in-ears also won't give a true mix of the house, just like a set of Mackie speakers won't give the same as the L1. The only way you will get a true house mix is to have the speaker behind you. I use a pair of L1-MIIs behind our 5-pc group, no monitors, and no feedback, even with a mic just 3 ft from the speaker.Read More...

adjusting top & bottom end on backing tracks in tonematch 8 channel 9 and 10

I am running backing tracks through my tonematch 8 mixer (channel 9 and 10). I would like to know how to do 2 things: make adjustments like more top end as it is a bit basey be able to adjust volume separately as you can with standard channels.

Hi Suzette, Thanks for writing. Short answer: Please connect your backing tracks to channels 1 through 8. The Aux inputs 9/10 can't do any signal processing The Aux inputs 9/10 can't be re-routed.
