F1 Efficency Saves The Day!

jdbassentertainment.com ·
I was hired to provide sound for an outdoor concert where they would be using a generator for power. Right before sound check the military 31,000 watt generator burst into flames and the power cut out! Scrambling at the last minute the event director was able to come up with two other generators - a 4000 watt and a 3000 watt (I got the 4000 watt and the backline and lights ran off the 3000 watt... Originally I had two 812 tops and two F1 subs hooked up... because I didn't want to add to any...

Panaray System Controller Shutting Down

Derek 2 ·
Hi There, I have a Panaray System controller which is shutting down and medium/low input volumes. I did post about it "Dropping Out" from the gig last night, but have been unable to find that post on this site. At the end of the night, after the room emptied, I reconnected the Bose EQ and ran some tests. The EQ would work if the input volume was low (less than -24db on the input meter). As soon as I increased the volume the Bose EQ would shut down and re-start. The controller screen would go...

Hi Nick, Thank you for your input, I did call support on Monday morning. I ran the four Bose 802III’s without the Panaray controller to finish the event. After we finished I did confirm the Panaray controller was the problem. It would shut down as soon as the volume increased above the -24db mark on the input meter. We have taken advantage of the offer to replace the Panaray for a Controlspace SP-24 , it should be here tomorrow. Thank you again and Bose support were amazing to deal with. Derek

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

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...

Tonematch AUX volume boost?!

Jocelyn Oldham ·
I've been having issues getting enough volume from the AUX out on my BOSE ToneMatch (with L1 model 2). Also, I read that you can't hear reverb in the AUX send? Confused then why there is this AUX option: "Pre: With EQ & FX: The signal is routed from the preamp stage with applied processing." ...if the FX can't be sent. Note: No reverb comes from the Aux output even if the tap point is Pre or Post. What other effect IS there on the tonematch? What am I missing? But my main issue is that...

Will we be able to use our T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine to drive a pair of these in Stereo? Mono? Many of us DJs find the T1 more than adequate for our needs and it is a very fine "sound card" for output from our Macs (or PCs). If so, please add instructions for this to the Wiki!

If I remember right, the vertical dispersion varied with frequency on the other systems - the higher frequencies were closer to 0°.

Re: F1 - Questions for Bose

cassdad ·
Yes, this has always been an "issue" of mine... Bose purports "0 degree vertical dispersion", but when I look at the "Technical Specifications", it seems to actually depend upon the frequency. For example, at the low frequencies, of course, the dispersion is very wide (not "zero degrees" as stated).

Hi ST, Yes in the 'Straight' position, the beam width will likely be narrow enough to avoid reflections from the ceiling and floor. PG Restating my question posted above to exclude surprisingly controversial references that as it turns out were not germane to the question. For me, the full sized L1 systems have been really well behaved in large reverberant spaces. There seems to be very little sound going up to bounce around and come back down. There's been far less unwanted reverberation.

Hi PMWizard, The F1 system is designed for use with ensembles with drums and guitars. Differences between F1 and L1 are: - More Power - The array is flexible and not fixed - You can daisy chain F1 units together. To cover larger halls, ideally, you would have a left and right system stack. As far as room coverage, what are you planning to do? quote: Originally posted by PMWIZARD: What are the advantages of this system, compared to the L1? What is the price for this new system?

Hi Stu This is good question... The bottom F1 Model 812 has a specially designed key that locks into the F1 stand. The fit is snug and secure. Please keep in mind that we need to pass safety tests before releasing a product like this. At the time o the video shoot, the stand was as secure as a standard tripod. We have even improved the design since then. Another advantage to the stand, is that you can rest the speaker on it until you find the key. This way, you are not hunting for a pole cup...

Re: F1 - Questions for Bose

paul-at-bose ·
Hi PMWIZARD, I can't accurately speak to coverage performance based on the specs you gave. To be honest, it's going to depend on the size of the space, how reverberant it is and how loud your band is. As you know, a drummer is going to excite the natural state of a space much differently than an acoustic guitar player. (or an acoustic player through an L1) For reference, we just used the F1 System in a stereo config in NOLA. The band was a rock trio. The space was fairly reflective with...

I am primarily a wedding Dj. Guests could be up to 500 in a normal ballroom setting. Currently use both the L1/B2 system and the Bose Platinum System (802III & 502BP). With the platinum system I start with the tops pointed outward to cover the seated guests for intros and speeches etc, then turn them inward to cover the dance floor for dancing. Could the F1 system be pole mounted so that the arrays can be turned if needed? I am disappointed that Bose did not come out with a more powerful...

What is the throw as compared to a L1 tower and a 802III? Will the 812 make full use of the 1000 W amplification? How is the 1000 watts assigned to the woofer and the array? I ask because I have a QSC K12, rated at 1000 W. In reality it has two 500 Watt amps (one each for the woofer and the horn), but there is no way the the horn will ever use anywhere near the 500 watts from the dedicated amp. Its completely false marketing from QSC. Balvinder - DJ Bally Atlanta GA www.DJBally.com

How does this unit compare with the L1? I recently (about 6 months ago) purchased dual L1 II's for Mobile DJ'ing (primarily pre-recorded music). Would I see a noticeable improvement in SPL level and sound quality if I traded in the towers for two F1 units? I play lots of bass heavy content (rap, pop, etc). I know dual 10" drivers have slightly more surface area than a single 12" driver, but the F1 also has double the amount of power than the L1 II. I planned on eventually adding two more...
