Bose Connect app in Windows 10

Hi all. I'm new in the forum. I have two units of S1 Pro, with which I am very happy. I'm looking for a way to run the Bose Connect app on a computer with windows 10. I have tried some emulators from android on pc, but none of them get the application to work, in particular it seems that they can not activate Bluetooth properly. Is there anyone who has achieved it? Thanks and congratulations for the forum.Read More...
I haven't tried this, but find the subject interesting. I found this article that might be useful to those who might want to try it. One of the things that caught my attention was this bit "requires Virtualisation Technology” enabled in your BIOS.". If you don't have that turned on, give that a shot, it might help. Here's the link: https://beebom.com/best-android-emulators-windows/ If I'm feeling energetic later I might give the Remix OS a try. It looks like you might be able to run this, as...Read More...

Power Question

Hi, I tried searching but didn't find an answer to my question. I have a S1 pro and i just use it at home connected for my kids to use Karaoke and also have my TV audio connected as well. My question is can i leave it plugged in and powered on? Aside from battery (assuming i take it out) is there any issues in keeping the s1 pro powered on at all times? I use it moderately and can turn it off but since I don't have a remote for it, i'm just wondering if i forget to turn it off or just leave...Read More...
Hi Dolly, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm glad you joined us. I use it that way too. See: S1 Pro Battery Installation - It's easy. Does that help? STRead More...

S1 Pro Line Out to Camcorder XLR input

ST, I want to ask for the S1 pro recording function. Im trying to record the audio from S1Pro to a video camcorder (xlr input). So does it works just by TRS line out to my cam Xlr input? Thank you.Read More...
A TV production crew did this with my musician friend Jim Gibson and one of his Bose S1 Pro's, @Renaldo . The filming site was several hundred feet away from the venue and they had been working hard early in the morning to figure out how to get the right sound of an acoustic instrument and vocals without all the ambient noise. Jim showed them his Bose S1 Pro runs entirely on battery with plenty of clean audio for that situation and the line output on the back and he had all the cables and...Read More...

Headphone practice

Hey all! I bought the S1 Pro to practice at home with live-looping (electric guitar + keys). It works great for that. The thing is, there are times in the evening when I'd like to practice, using the mixer built into the S1 pro, but with headphones only . The line-out is okay for headphones (it could be better), but there is no way (as far as I can tell) to mute the actual speaker output while listening to line out through headphones. I know that this isn't what the S1 Pro is meant for, but...Read More...
Hi Tyler, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Nope, there's no way to defeat the loudspeaker output on the S1 Pro system. Sorry, the USB port is for firmware updates only. Please don't do that. There are no user serviceable parts inside, and if you open it, you'll void your warranty. Does your looper have a headphone output? STRead More...

Channel 1 Amber Led, No Solution Yet

Just got a second S1 Pro, plugged into ac wall outlet to charge for a day. With unit still plugged in, I tested speaker thru the Bluetooth connection. Speaker sounded like my first S1, so I figured I don’t need to check channels 1,2. I switched the power switch to off, unplugged iec side of power cord. Switched back on, ran on battery power just fine while streaming Bluetooth. I plugged iec side back in unit, music streamed without a Hiccup.Read More...
Hey Everybody, This thread has drifted from the original topic " Channel 1 Amber Led, No Solution Yet " Keoki Palacio's original concern has been addressed (unit repaired) Subsequent questions have been answered We have a new discussion for S1 Pro Shutdown when you disconnect AC Power We're going to close this discussion.

I'm having an issue getting the Connect + App (ver. 8.0) to Connect to S1s

I have my S1s successfully connected to my iPhone 7Plus and an old ipad mini retina. I now want to use my S1s with an iPhone 6 Plus. Both speakers connect to the phone's bluetooth and I can play mono from the phone through both. BUT, when I open Connect (v. 8.0), neither will connect to the app. I tried having the phone forget the devices, then opening connect and then reconnecting the S1s to the bluetooth and connect still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?Read More...

Bose Connect App

Does the Bose connect app include EQ adjustments for the 3rd (bluetooth) channel? If not, are there plans to add this feature?Read More...
Hi Mike, Thanks for asking. The Bose Connect app does not do any signal processing to the Bluetooth stream. Bose has not announced any plans to add signal processing or remote control features. The Bose Connect app allows you to configure Bluetooth streaming for two S1 Pro systems (from the device running the app), control Bluetooth connections to other devices, and monitor the battery status.

Anyone else have issues with Behringer B1200D Subwoofer?

My first one arrived with low output and sound like it had a blanket over it. I returned it. I received my replacement and it sounded great for about 10 minutes. I went to get a guitar to plug into it and when I got back to it, there was a smell in the air and the sound went to hell like the first one. No local warranty repair, so it has to go back. Can I possibly be the only one having issues with these things? ThanksRead More...
My first one sounded like that out of the box. The second one, something definitely went on it because the sound before and after was so completely different. And the smell. Now when I move the knob to change the crossover frequency, there's no difference as I move it.Read More...

S1's Save the Day

Mr. Hoon
We had planned to use a QSC mixer into two, pole-mounted S1's for a small engagement party this past weekend. Unbeknownst to the host, the power at the venue is turned off on weekends! So...we - luckily - had a 3rd S1 with us in case we needed a monitor (we had never been to this venue before). Instead, we tilted the three in front of us, plugged in a guitar/vocal to each, had the percussionist listen and adjust each for a sound check, and off we went! The percussion and sax cut through fine...Read More...
Ric, Thanks for the info. Looks like my next purchase! ST & Ric, Thanks for the comments on the picture. It was a weird location, but fun place to play. That's me on the far right.Read More...

anyone tried this? Any wisdom? Products?Read More...
Hi gary10113, I had the same question on another thread (ST listed it above). I just bought the Xvive U3 unit shown below. I will be testing it out in the next few weeks. I did a quick mixer main out to Bose S1 Pro Channel 1 input, I got about 100 feet range (outdoors + line of sight) sound was really great. The set costs $199.00 and comes with a transmitter and receiver shown below, it's supposed to run about 5 hours on a charge. I called the help desk and they did say one transmitter can...Read More...

Subwoofer for S1 Pro

CityFolk
Several folks have started using the Behringer 1200D subwoofer with the S1 to bolster its lower end. It got me to thinking that it would be nice for Bose to develop a similar type of optional subwoofer for the S1, but perhaps base (no pun intended) it on a B1 or 2. Further, it would be nice to have this new B1/2 interchangeable with a L1 as many of us use both depending on the venue size. I expect one of the challenges would be how to make this new subwoofer work off battery power to...Read More...
Interesting conversation, but the S1's appeal is it's size and it's ability to be used on batteries. I feel muddiness, stability, and power consumption are the problems the S1 would have to master to achieve more lower end. Good effects and low end bass needs power and fast transients. Batteries would die quickly under such demand. By-amping might deal with it but weight and size and cone size would have to be changed, and then there is the battery issue. I would use an 8 inch cone but for...Read More...

Battery Life

theonemanband
Hi, I have been using my S1 Pro for a while now, mainly running it on mains when available, but occasionally on battery power for small/outdoor gigs. I am aware of the battery condition warning (3 flashes=75%+.......2 flashes=50%+ etc)., but I was wondering if anyone knows how this eqates to actual playing time. I realise this depends on the power it is drawing; I am using both main chanels (NO Aux) set at 60%+/- (about 1 o’clock) and both set to “Mic” EQ. I am using a Shure SM57A (Beta) and...Read More...
FYI: I make it a point to always fully charge my S1Pros before any gig. I just think it's a good practice to do so. I don't want to show up at a gig with one that's less than fully charged, and I've never had an issue with the unit(s) running out of power.Read More...

Outdoor gig

Yesterday, I played 6 - 9 on the river side deck at a restaurant/bar. The area seats maybe 75. The new owners only book solo acoustic acts and stipulate "Not Loud". I used the S1 Pro on a short speaker stand with my Composite Acoustics Legacy in channel 2 and a Shure SM58 in channel 1 Tonematch set accordingly. The gig went well, the owners liked me, crowd was decent but dropped off after 8. I had the volume at right where the owner wanted it, which IMO was a little too quiet but they write...Read More...
The S1 appears to have been "designed" primarily for one-person performance situations -- one, portable unit with two channels (vocal/instrument) with long battery life and great sound. I've found two of them (with an inexpensive 5 channel mixer) to be an excellent substitute for any other PA that I owned (which I've now sold**). I've added a couple of inexpensive subwoofers and already had a JBL EON ONE and filled a sports bar last night with great sound using just those items (with a QSC...Read More...

Bluetooth transmitter

I have a Beat Buddy drum machine and want to run it through the blue tooth channel. Is there an app for the iphone X to connect through the lightning port via the Beat Buddy 1/4 inch output and use the phone’s bluetooth? Or, is there a dedicated Bluetooth transmitter dongle to hook to the drum machine output? I use the S1’s channel one for vocal mic and channel two for my guitar. I really like the S1 for small gigs. Oh, the sound! Thank you in advance.Read More...
I completely forgot about the aux in. Thanks. I will use that instead.Read More...

S1 pro bluetooth delay

Hi guys, I'm using an LG oled tv, this model doesn't support bluetooth out audio I've bought an HomeSpot Bluetooth Transmitter Dual Musik Stream Bluetooth Sender mit Auto-Reconnect und aptX für Ton Übertragung von TV Gerät an Bluetooth Lautspr It's awesome, finally I can use my S1 pro system for my TV but there is a 1-1,5 second audio delay. Is there any way to overcome this? With my apple airpods I don't have any delay so it's not the transmitter but the slow bluetooth of the Bose S1 pro.Read More...
so this solution didn't work I think it's because my TV doesn't support aux out, So the one bluetooth homespot is connected with optical out, and then I tried to connect the receiver homespot with the aux out to my bose speaker, but it clearly wasn't workingRead More...

Blue tooth fading problem with S1 PRO

I have always had the problem when turning down the knob on the S1 PRO of the sound abruptly cutting off instead of doing a normal fade. Is there an update available to fix this? This happens regardless of the phone setting volume.Read More...
The digital needs to perform like the analog. Apparently, a long way to go on this yet.Read More...

"Will unbalanced work out of the S1?" Maybe. I always default to balanced unless the output signal is too strong for the input to the other device -- for instance, +4dB from a mixer to a microphone level only input. https://www.sweetwater.com/ins...lanced-audio-signal/Read More...

3 Bose S1 speakers and a T4S

Hello, I fell in love with the S1 so much that I bought three of them. I play acoustic gigs in small bars and coffee houses and this is perfect for it. My issue is that I like to have people sit in when I play, whether another guitar, vocal, mandolin, etc. Im looking to buy either a T1S, T4S, or T8S. I'd like to use one S1 for the L and R mains and one as a monitor. Before I invest can anyone point me in the right direction. Is it even possible to link all three together and have a nice pa...Read More...
