Re: Additional Speakers for bigger gigs

Hi Debbie, You can attach self-powered (active) loudspeakers to the L1 Model I Power stand. Here is an article that describes several ways to do it. PS1 Power Stand Connections - Line Outs In the article, there are some diagrams - each with a yellow line "To House System". This is where you could connect a self-powered (active) loudspeaker. Please tell us about why you want to add speakers to your L1. Maybe there's another way to meet the need. ST

L1 Compact, L1 Model II, F1 system which is better?

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hi everyone I have been spending most of my time on the F1 forum... This being said I still am the proud owner of four L1 systems - two Model II and two Compacts. A colleague of my wanted to know which was better the L1 or F1 systems... where I replied neither! I told him they are unique tools and all the models in the Bose portable PA speakers have there place... I then replied... I use the Compacts for outdoor ceremony's and small shows where I don't anticipate dancing. I use my L1 Mod. II...

Hi JD, We've got different applications, but that's part of the fun of having an open conversation. Model II As a performer, solo or in a band - for me - nothing beats performing in front of a Model II with a T1® on my microphone stand. I have absolute confidence in what I'm hearing and sharing with an audience and my band mates. I sing and play electric guitar (most of the time). I play acoustic but less often. For most of what I do with a Model II, a B1 is the best choice for me. If I'm...

Re: Using B2 as an upright bass speaker

ST ·
Hi jazzbikerguy, You can run a B2 from a Bose A1 PackLite power amplifier . You will still need a bass preamp to get your tone. The A1 is just an amplifier with no tone or volume controls. Do you have a bass preamp? ST

Can I drive the B2 with something other (smaller) than the L1 series 2 power stand? I'd use it for upright bass.

Re: Using B2 as an upright bass speaker

Hi jazzbikerguy, I just looked up the MXR M81 . I can't predict how well this would work. Do you have a Model II and B1 or B2? If so, you can get an idea of how this would sound. Set up the Model II Power Stand without the Cylindrical Radiator (tower). It's okay to run it like that. Connect your bass to the MXR M81. Connect the MXR M81 to the Model II Power Stand Analog Input. Set the Model II Power Stand Analog Input trim to about 10:00 o'clock Connect to the Model II Power Stand to a B1 or...

Re: Using B2 as an upright bass speaker

Yes, I have an MXR M81 – is that as good as anything? In this scenario my bass goes through the M81 to the A1 to the B2, right? Are you aware of any bassists who use this as a primary standalone setup as opposed to something like an Acoustic Image TEN2? Edit: Removed some personal information that appears to have been included unintentionally.

Big day out for my F1 and L1 systems!

Each year for the last few years I've provided front-of-house sound, DJ and MC services to a vineyard for a popular food, wine and music festival. This year I had a great time and my sound system worked a treat. Here's what the set up looked like.

Re: Two X L1, one x T1

Thanks for that ST. That is pretty much what I thought, but it seemed like a reasonable question to pose in case my gut instinct was wrong. As for my typos, I'm not sure what happened there, but I do know that I was posting from my android phone, so anything is possible.

Two X L1, one x T1

Nick from New Zealand ·
Hi team, I have an upcoming event that's just a little big for my usual single L1/B2. If I run the first L1 the usual way with the digital connection out to the L1, can I add the second L1 to the analogue master out from the T1? Once I manually balance/match the volume on the analogue power stand, the T1 master will control both of the L1 systems together right? I'm aware this won't be a stereo output. Not sure I need it. Thanks!

Hi DJ Richard, DJ Richard, Award Entertainment posted: Out of interest, are you able to run from 81 into a ethernet switch and then out to multiple L1s using cable cables? I'm assuming you meant to type 81 T1® and cable network cables. We can't use an ethernet switch because we're not using ethernet protocol between the T1® and the Model II Power Stand.

Pardon the question, but why would you want to do that? Are you trying to save on weight? If so, then OK, but I would have thought that you'll be losing a few frequencies by using a B2. The frequencies of a Double Bass being: E1 at 41 Hz to B3 at 247 Hz with Harmonics up to 7 kHz. As the B2 has a frequency response Frequency Response: (-3dB)...

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my results with my fellow DJs having to do with L1 Systems and crowd size. As time goes on I am gaining more and more respect for the L1 Systems.

Re: Hiss when L1 Compact is turned on

Hi Drew, Thanks for joining the Community. I'm glad that you are here. Normally, if you are not using a channel, you would turn its volume all the way off. There should be no hiss. If you are playing music through channel two and don't have a microphone plugged into channel one, then you should turn channel one all the way off. When you play music through channel two and you have channel one turned off you shouldn't be able to hear hiss above the sound of the music. If you do: Try another...

Re: Hiss when L1 Compact is turned on

Hi ST, Thanks for your reply. The hiss occurs even when the volume trim on both channels are turned to 0. The hiss is noticeable if no music is playing and I'm standing / sitting close to the speaker ~4 feet. it is also noticeable if the music is played very quietly and I'm close enough to the speaker. it sounds like a faint continuous static noise. It would be interesting to see if any other L1 owners are experiencing this issue. drew

Hiss when L1 Compact is turned on

drew-t ·
Hi, I just purchased the L1 Compact 1 month ago and am really enjoying the new system. However, I've been noticing a faint hiss when whenever the L1 is turned on. I normally have the volume dial at the 12 o'clock and the hiss is noticeble when close to the speaker. When I really push the volume, to say 3 o'clock, the hissing gets even louder. The hiss occurs even when nothing is plugged in to the speaker. This is not usually a problem for loud music, but for quiet passages its not so good.

Hi Gruff, There was a bug in some of the very early R1 Remotes. It was rare, but you could get unexpected high volume. The version 1.2 Remote solved the problem. If you haven't noticed the problem, you probably won't. ST

Re: Hiss when L1 Compact is turned on

Perhaps I have the answer to your problem. The hiss or ground noice is coming from the wallplug. If you change, and only have 2 prongs, instead of 3, you can hear a difference. I play keyboard with my L1 Compact, and when I push the button on my keyboard, there is only silence. I have an old Yamaha Electone D65 and there are only 2 prongs on the wallplug. Hope this helps.

Hi Fabio, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you joined us. I looked up your devices (links below). The T1® does not support the digital connections provided by your devices. You can use the analog outs with cables like this. You could connect one device to T1® Channels 4/5 and the other to T1® Channels 2 and 3. Does that help?

That is a good question, I have never used them like this... I always use at least one sub... It depends on the type of venue and what type of music is playing through them/band or DJ and lastly what type of crowd will be there ?... quiet listening/party it up? DJ - Background Music/PA - I'd estimate 250-350 people DJ - Party - I'd estimate up to 250 people Small Band - Background Music/PA - 250-350 people Small Band - Party it Up - I'd estimate up to - 200 people Large Band - Background...

I did some research on the 2 prong cable and read tha it can be dangerous using the 2 prong cable as it could put you at risk of being electrocuted. Don't want to take the risk of damaging the PA system or killing myself :-) looks like I'm the only one who is experiencing this hiss issue?

Adding a F1/812 to a T1 system

Hi I currently have a L1 II/B2 system with two T1's and a added 12 channel sub mixer. I love the sound we are getting but want to improve on it for using with a larger venue. We are a four piece band with two on vox. Two guitarists that sing, bass running a DI and Drummer with mic'ed kick and snare/hihat. The electric guitars are non mic'ed but we run two acoustics through the system. Our sound works well for us in small to medium small (200 seat) venues but for anything larger than that we...

Hi galleryg, It sounds like you’re considering the right stuff here. I agree if you were to run an additional L1 II you would probably be better served to split the sources between the two. Even if you ran two L1 IIs with identical signals they don’t necessarily approach doubling the output: http://toonz.ca/bose/wiki/inde..._Distributed_Systems So if your L1 II is challenged with your mix at greater than 200 seat gigs, I think you’re right to consider the F1 which has much more power.
