Re: List Your Profession in which you use the F1 Speakers Pole

Hi JD, This is a fun topic. Live Musician - Applications Front of House (FOH) I use two F1 Stacks (F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofer) on either side and front of the stage. I use a Soundcraft Ui16 as the mixer. Typically, I will have L1® Compacts or L1® Model II units at the back of the stage for monitors. In this situation, I am also performing. Backline Amp I use this with my T1®, Neumann KMS 105 , and Kemper Profiling Amp. I would normally use my L1® Compact for this application. The...

Hi Royela, let me say this regarding your problem. As a Line 6 POD user when it first came out I made the mistake of dialing in my sounds using headphones as monitors. I was really happy with the presets I made for my dance band (similar to a top 40 band) at the time. I then took the POD with my carefully made presets into our practice room and connected everything up. The sound was pretty awful. Nothing like I'd heard through my headphones. After that I always went into the practice room...

Thanks Tony....I appreciate your quick response!! Yes I have done most of what you suggested and I understand the Mono issue. I use the voice live 3 for harmonies. The sound is good except when I turn on harmonies it increases the volume so the sound terrible!! I have a feeling it is more of a TC Helicon issue than the Bose. Any setting you may suggest using the voive live 3 would be appreciated. Having many frustrating hours trying to get the 2 together. Thanks again Roy

Hi Roy, let me first answer this: Utility flat is a T1 preset which basically bypasses the T1 EQ presets. It's basically a bypass. You still have use of the tone controls etc. for fine tuning but no EQ'ing that you don't need. Some of us use it when connecting signal processors such as yours to the T1 as it quite often gives the best sound. To select "Utility Flat" rotate the "Category" knob until you see "Utility" and select it. Then rotate the preset knob to flat and select that. You now...

B2s LIve, L1 Type IIs and Taylor ES2.

Moon Dog ·
I play some fairly large venues (Indoors) and I wanted to post a couple observations. 1. I rarely run the B2s at anything other than the lowest bass setting. A musician friend of mine that attends many of my shows and is very critical told me, at the lowest setting I am shaking the entire bar...so much for saying Bose has no Bass. So I recommend running those B2's at the lowest bass setting...they kick it out. 2. If you play a Taylor and use a Bose L1 Type II....I have a number of Taylor...

Hi Mark, when I read things like this I do feel a slight attack of envy for all those who live on your side of the big pond. Living in Germany I sometimes feel a bit "cut off" from all the really interesting Bose things (especially the legendary meets). Take care, Tony

Regarding having been able to attend some of the larger events. That's what I meant when I answered your post. As far as the second paragraph goes it's worth a lot, thank you. Maybe the chance will arrive at some date, who knows. Until then I'll/we'll have to make do with the forum for which I am very grateful. Should you ever get an invite to Kemper in Germany (don't you provide them with L1's for Namm etc.?), they're based in Recklinghausen/Germany which is one of the neighboring towns to...

Hey Tony, I wish there were more opportunities to meet my Bose friends. I have been fortunate to have attended a couple of the larger events you mentioned and I met some very wonderful people. For what it is worth I enjoy reading your insightful posts and hope the will be an opportunity to meet you someday. ... Mark

Hi Mark, Thank you! Your outline is really helpful; very thorough. I'm working on a series of videos for the T1® and this has given me some ideas for things to cover. Did you do a video of your presentation? ST

Hi Mark, Well that certainly sounds like it was a pretty intensive clinic. Shame there was no video made, but one can't have everything. I take it you're in the last few hectic days before a well earned Christmas break? If so, just make sure you get through it "in one piece" and then enjoy the festivities. Tony

Hi Roy, You're more than welcome to any help I can give. I look forward to hearing about your progress here. What's unfortunate about gear nowadays is that the things are so versatile that the learning curve is pretty hefty. Mind you, in the olden days you'd have to buy a unit for each thing. If you add up all the learning curves, maybe it's not really all that bad nowadays. It's just that you've got it all in one unit that makes it seem a lot. Tony

Re: Observations from "Foreigner Performs on Bose L1 Systems" video

JohnL ·
Hi Bruno, Yes, some people use the L1s in a traditional layout of FOH and stage monitor. Yes, this defeats the purpose of the L1. But, multiple L1s are more versatile to have than the traditional FOH/SM setup. I've used the L1s in almost all those configurations you mentioned. The reason for this is the same as all things audio related... it depends. I've used 2 Compacts as rear, side, and front monitors. And L1M2 as regular FOH flanking the stage. I've used 2 Compacts, and 2 L1M2 as rear...

Observations from "Foreigner Performs on Bose L1 Systems" video

GLB Productions ·
As a live sound engineer who is new to the Bose approach I've been watching videos of bands using the L1 systems live to get some idea of different set up possibilities. On the Bose YouTube channel there is a video of Foreigner doing a gig in 2014 with four L1 systems. There is a good overall shot of the stage at this point in the video: https://youtu.be/sibKEEBlfWs?t=1m28s I noticed a couple of things I'd like to ask about: 1. The band has two L1s behind them and two L1s in front, the...

Stereo miking for the group. They were arranged in a U around the mics. I've had better luck with feedback when the kids were low, almost on the floor facing up. The musicians were blocking the L1 and we're about 2 feet away from the mics. L1 compact was about 3 feet behind the group. If the gig is indoors, you can also rotate the L1 to face off to the side to spread the sound around the room, while further minimizing feedback potential then you can run a higher gain. Close lapel miking also...

Hi Bruno, I'm not sure if you can see, but in this setup, I was miking an a cappella group and I was using 4 mics. The two condensers in the middle and if you look closely, you'll see two boundary mics on the floor. Those were directed towards the side singers. The reason for this was that having the singers between the mic and the L1, eliminated any potential feedback issues. The stand mics did double duty for the back singers and any soloists that stood up and moved closer to the mics. The...

I am Thankful!

Hi everyone, it is that time of year when we can reflect on the year... and offer thanks. I am thankful for the Bose F1 components that have integrated so well in my DJ and Live Sound business. These light weight, powerful and amazing sounding speakers/subs were the tools I was lacking but needed for quite some time... very very happy with my investment! Thank you Bose for another year with great gear!! -JD Bass

Ah yes now THIS is something that I am looking forward to experimenting with - the idea that the monitors don't need a separate mix from the FOH and that you can tell the musicians with confidence that 'You're hearing the same thing I'm hearing'. My only concern is feedback at high levels because, line array or not, you can't change the laws of physics. Then you used the L1 compact for the string quartet did you have a mic on each player or one for the entire group? Bruno

Thanks ST, I've watched that video several times and am very keen to see how these ideas work out in practice - I've got a couple of tests lined up for the L1 compact this weekend. Will report back! Bruno
