Advice for using S1 Pro outdoors

CityFolk
We just finished an outdoor gig with a single S1 at a local farmers market where we were under a 10x10 canopy with open sides. To keep us and the S1 out of the blistering sun, we had it positioned on a speaker stand behind us just at head level under the tent. The volume was just a little over 50%. There was a little wind and the area has no buildings just an open parking lot with tents going about 75-100 yards ahead of us. While this was probably one of the worst case scenarios for the S1...Read More...
Last night I played an outdoor patio gig at a local restaurant. The patrons sitting directly in front of me were pretty close me. I worried about being too loud for them and yet not loud enough for the other customers. The S1 Pro was on a small speaker stand, to my right about even with my shoulders. I simply picked up the whole unit (since it was battery powered) and moved it back about three feet -- problems solved. I thought the speaker actually sounded better to me and also solved the...Read More...

Can a Bose S1 Pro Portable Battery PA be connected to an L1 Compact?

Does anyone know if this is possible, thereby forming an extension into another room , from where I am playing. If this is OK? ...Where do I plug into my Tonematch T1 Mixer, and where into the S1 Pro, and whats the most appropriate cable to use. Any help most welcome. Thanks all. Ron. HRead More...

Need specs on S1 Pro TRS Output

My question is about your S1 Pro described at https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/portable_pa_speakers/s1_pro_system.html with regards to the TRS output. I need to use it for other than a speaker. What is its nominal output level, impedance, and allowable load so that the load does not affect the S1? Many thanks. (I looked at the manual and tried Google, but to no avail - the info is just not there.)Read More...
ST, All: Thank you very much for the information. I have just ordered a suitable impedance matching transformer that will do what I need. Very many thanks again.Read More...

Considering Purchase

Guitargal58
I am considering purchasing this little jewel for my solo shows. I currently use my Yamaha Stagepass 600i and love it...but need a monitor for my Beat Buddy and Digitech VLHM harmonizer. I was using a TC Helicon FX150 but have had issues with both (sent one back...got a replacement...now more issues). I really don't need another PA system but am wondering how this compares to the L1 system (I also have Fishman SA220 solo amp). The larger PA is used mainly for my outdoor gigs at festivals and...Read More...
Yes there is sound and then Bose sound. Thanks for the kind words re our website. Good luck with the gigs.Read More...

(Early Adopters0 Complimentary Free S1 Pro Backpack/Re-chargeable Battery

Hi and thanks to those who responded to my post re: above. My take on this , for what its worth is that following BOSE corporate decision to supply fitted Re-chargeable batteries to this unit, we lost our choice, and mine would have been to have had the Back- pack, which I thought I was getting sent. Never mind I am happy with the unit, but its true worth re: quality sound... is through my TS4 Tonematch Mixer bought separately, and it would have been near perfect with just a few more...Read More...

BackPack arrived yesterday.

OK! I guess they DIDN'T forget the little province of New Brunswick in Canada. No advance news from UPS, no e-mails but a truck backed into my driveway and voilà! Already had 2 Arriva padded bags for my S1 but this one is better but much more expensive. Got an afternoon gig and will use my 2 S1's on stands and to bring them - one in the BackPack and the other in the other bag, mixmatched. Not used to this. Can someone tell me when they will be available to the poor *****s that bought their...Read More...

S1 Pro Battery Back-Pack.

Hello Dooer. I'm so glad you have managed to secure one of these ( Early Adopters S1 Pro Back-Packs) they are much more protective of these lovely little mobile units, should keep your looking good. I also have an S1 Pro, and may get another soon, and although the unit itself is remarkable and worth the quite hefty price tag, I am not to happy about the basic cover that comes with this, and was hoping to get an S1 Pro Back-Pack to keep mine safe when out and about, but as yet no luck. Do you...Read More...

two S1 Pro Speakers with F1 sub .... signal from T1 Tonematch

Johnny g
I recently purchased the S1 to use as a monitor with two F1 812,s with F1 subs at FOH from my T1. I ran this equipment configuration at a large outdoor venue. As a monitor the S1 is outstanding. I played a very small (40 in the audience) gig in a confined area last week using just a single S1 (again with the Tonematch) ... amazing. I am totally impressed with this small powerhouse. I am now considering picking up a second S1 and would like to use two S1’s with my F1 sub with signal from my...Read More...

Small back yard parties with dancing and Karaoke

I was just wondering how would the S1 do at a small party at maybe 25 people for both dancing and karaoke please let me know if there’s a video that you have of one you’ve done I would love to see it thank youRead More...
I don't get that. I just downloaded it onto a computer I did not have it on , did not log in or anything, and it played the songs I tried from start to finish. I am on windows, not an IPad, but I would not think that would make a difference. I would send them an email. They are in England I think, but they always get back the next day.Read More...

Power switch

I have just purchased a new Bose S1 Pro and following a you tube video upboxed it set the power switch to the 2nd position plunged in the cable and then switched it on. I now the 3rd position is rapid charge and the 1st position is on. When do you use the middle position or position 2? Do you set this to this position everytime you plug the mains in before you switch it on? What position do you set it in when you finished using it? ThanksRead More...
Thanks for the answers above.Read More...

S1 Pro system, battery included, slip cover not (May 2018)

I ordered an S1 when it became available with the battery. Note that the S1 no longer comes with a cover - I was disappointed that Bose chose to delete this when they decided to include the battery. Even if the cover is considered "just a dust cover," it is some protection while carting the S1 around or when it is not being used. I hope Bose will reconsider this. The S1 is a great small PA that is perfect for taking out - why delete ANY kind of protection for it?? Is there any way current...Read More...
Interesting I have just purchased mine and there was no cover I contacted the dealer I bought it from and I thought it was missing so they sent me one. Now I know why it was not there!!Read More...

Mackie ProFX 4 Mixer feed to S1 Pro

I am feeding a small Mackie mixer to my S1 Pro. I just feel I need a little more control over eq at my feet. I also add a short, slap back delay since I prefer this over reverb and often use this together with the Bose reverb. It only has 1/4” left and right out. Using guitar and vocal. I plan to only feed one line out since there is no pan available. Should I: 1. Use TS instrument cable with a di box and convert to xlr before going to S1 Pro? 2. Use a standard TS instrument cable direct in...Read More...
Your option 2 works for me.Read More...

Love the Sound, Size, Weight and Bluetooth but not the line out jack.

Just received my S1 and immediately did a gig using it as monitor added to my L1c and my F1 as main outs. The sound for its size is truly wonderful and the feature set is terrific but on my very first use I accidentally stepped on the cable coming from the output jack going to my L1c and it broke off the jack inside of the unit. Since the unit is called an S1 Pro, it really should be more rugged than that, as most musicians performing live at some point in time step on cables. I have been...Read More...
Thanks - I will.Read More...

Dial concern

I have an email in to product support, but has anyone had any issues with dials coming off? One of my reverb dials is missing - it got transferred from one vehicle to another, and perhaps got mishandled on its inaugural voyage :(. I'm looking forward to my backpack - and hopefully a replacement dial.Read More...

New Bose S1 Review

I am now the proud owner of the Bose S1 Pro On the 22nd June 2018. I collected my new Bose S1. I am very pleased with it so far. I connected the power supply and switched it on, paired my laptop with the Bose and played a track through Apple iTunes. Wow!! what fantastic sound quality. very clear sound with great bass. I took the Bose for a gig outside and mounted it on a standard speaker stand to shoulder height and was very impressed. A few observations for anyone about to purchase one- 1...Read More...

S1 Pro while waiting for the Bose Backpack

ST
I noticed a funny coincidence. The dimensions of the S1 Pro are almost the same as the original Apple MacIntosh. S1 Pro system 13.0" H x 9.5" W x 11.2" D Wt 14.5 lbs $2,495 ($6,071-2018) MacIntosh 13.6" H x 9.6" W x 10.9" D Wt 16.5 pounds $599 It was a happy similarity for me. I have a great padded bag with carrying handle and shoulder strap. It'll do fine until the Bose S1 Pro Backpack is available. STRead More...
FYI: This bag available on Amazon and Ebay used and new. Some priced below $99 but watch out for the postage cost which can take you near or above the $99. As for me, I'm holding out for the backpack...Read More...

Bluetooth Low-latency: a suggested Answer

Bluetooth Low-Latency - a possible Answer? Everyone's excited about the Bluetooth on their S1 Pro kit but beware: standard Bluetooth has severe latency around 200ms making it suitable only for streaming backing tracks and NOT for live interactive playing of an instrument via a mobile device app. ANSWER: use a couple of aptX devices to get unnoticeable delays. I use two Avantree (Saturn Pro) devices, these are battery powered with 3.5mm Stereo connections. One set as transmit (TX) and one set...Read More...
I am looking for a reasonably priced bluetooth receivers for my system. Was considering the Bose Soundtouch Bluetooth adapter but can't find any info on it being low latency. Presently have the Alto Bluetooth adapter but they are definitely not low latency . Maybe usable for playing from a smartphone but vocals being delayed is a no go for me as I do karaoke.Read More...

Daisy chain S1 Pro to l1 model 2 with ts1 Tonematch

Hi, I play through a l1 model 2 and b2 bass sub. Works fine for most situations but I occasionally play a bar with a split room and they have no way to feed the music into there main bar. Can I Daisy the S1 pro with a 30 ft cable? If so, how would this look from the Tonematch? Would I use a trs cable?Read More...
Hi, I've been using L1 Model II with double B1 x 4 with T1 mixer and Sennheiser in-a-ear wireless monitoring system for each musician but also extra receivers plug-in to the extra pair of L1 Model II with B1 subwoofers. Since there is no or almost zero latency in transmitting audio between the transmitter and 6 receivers, setup is perfect for the situation where the extra pair of speakers are required yet far away. There is no need for TRS cables, only power leads. Also Sennheiser system has...Read More...
