No signal from zero to one

Beau Ryan ·
Is it intended behavior for the Bose S1 Pro to output no signal until the volume knob gets to about 1-1.5? Just bought one and while streaming music over Bluetooth this is very apparent. Set the Bose volume knob for Channel 3 (BT) to zero and slowly turn up then around 1.5 the signal suddenly kicks in. Not smooth at all. Tested the same thing on Channel 1 with a mic and it seems to be less pronounced by still a noticeably abrupt transition from no signal to HELLO SOUND!

Firmware 7.0.11

ST ·
There's a new firmware release 7.0.11 for the S1 Pro system It addresses this issue: EDIT S1 Pro Shutdown when you disconnect AC Power Clarification: Previously, some S1 Pro Systems would shut down if the AC power was interrupted. On those units firmware 7.0.11 changes the way an interruption to the AC power affects the S1 Pro: When an interruption in AC power is detected, the S1 Pro will go silent for four to seven seconds. The audio will resume without intervention from you. During the...

L1 wedding ceremony setup

Smitty 2 ·
Gig Report: Hey all, one of the great functions of the L1 is the wide dispersion. When you use these outside, the sound just fills the space, and for things like a wedding ceremony, you don't need to have the PA right up front to cover the area. I set the L1 in the cluster of trees in the flower bed, to the side about in line with the second row of seats, and angled the face of the cylinder toward the back corner. What's not shown in these pics is that there were people sitting up the hill...

B2 Bass Module cutting out intrmitantly

Kelticdave ·
I've been using my Bose L1 Model 2 system with B2 Bass Module for 4 years now.. I love the system but have been experiencing problems with the bass module pretty much since I bought the system.. Basically sometimes when I set up my PA I would have nothing coming from the Bass at all.. I always have at least 2 of every lead/ cable handy in case of emergencies.. but changing cables didn't help.. then without warning it would start working again.. a bit of a pain but at least it always started...

Using 2 Bose L1s but just one B2 as FOH Left/Right

MicklePickle ·
I'm a sound guy and have been using a Bose L1/B2 system for several years for smaller venues. But a single Bose tower is mono and I miss the width of a stereo system, especially for keyboards and special effects like reverb and delay. I'd like to use two Bose L1 towers but just one B2. This will help reduce the phase issues (hot and dead spots) associated with two subs running in a small room. Is this feasible? Would I need to make significant adjustments? Thanks.

Intermittent Problems with PS1 Power Stand

Patty ·
We have two LI Model 1 systems that we purchased ten years ago for a small acapella chorus. One of the power stands is working intermittently. If we let it warm up for 15-20 minutes it works OK but we haven't tested it through an hour-long performance. I contacted BOSE and was told that the newer power stands will not accept the L1 Cylindrical Radiator Speakers that fit into our current base. Do I have any other option other than replacing both the power stand and the speakers?

Adding External Equalizer

Prota-Zha ·
I have a Bose L1 Model 1 with 2 B1 Bass modules. While I do like the unit and it's power, I am not satisfied with the overall tone. Are there any suggestions regarding which EQ would work well with the L1 to effect the overall sound of 'whatever' is going through it? The Bose EQ is way above my budget of $80 to $150. Also, would I use the insert for this application? Thank you... T

Bose Compact Elevated?

Harry 3 ·
Hello! I have had a few "standing on the floor at audience level" church gigs lately (Just my acoustic guitar and vocal). I decided to try to elevate my Bose Compact to get up over people’s heads when they are standing (See pic). It's typical for people to stand at church when they are singing along with me. This method seems to really help project sound and also helped reduce feedback issues. It felt like the bass/lows were a bit thinner? (Maybe my imagination) Anyone else do this? Or...

L1 compact buzzing

I have a Bose L1 compact. A while ago, it started making a hum or buzz when I turn the volume up. It's very distracting and it seems to be getting worse. I don't know what to do about it. I'm playing a guitar through a Baggs Venue, but it also happens with a Radial Tonebone preamp. The louder the volume, the louder the buzz.

DIY T1 mixer mount onto an L1 Compact.

I, (and apparently other people) wish that my T1 tone match could mount to my L1 compact. I did review the other options and eventually purchased the Bose mic stand adapter which works well enough, but still wished for the on-the-column option. In studying/measuring the bracket inside the base which holds the column, I started looking at off the shelf items that might be able to emulate the Bose bracket and allow me to attach the T1 bracket that came stored in the lid.

Using looper multi-instrumentalist

Bill Coward ·
I want to play loops through my Pigtronix Infinity and Bose L1/1S/B1 system. Right now I'm sending two keyboards, a vocal mic, a "guitar" (actually a Banjola going into a Trace Acoustic) and a Beat Buddy into a TouchMix 8, using the stereo outs to go into two Bose towers. I put the Infinity looper between the TouchMix and the towers. I'm getting lots of hum/hiss. But I'm looking forward to a lot of fun with this. Just set up the system today. I'll be experimenting with it a lot tomorrow.

Bose F1 sub sounding stressed, but not limiting or clipping

My band has the Bose F1 top/sub system and on occasion we seem to be stressing the subs. The grills are rattling and to the ear the woofers sound stressed, but there also is not a whole lot of impact on the dance floor.
