Mic setting

drux53 ·
I am using the T8S mixer and AKG D5 mic. 1.) Since there is no Tonematch setting specific to this mic, what would you suggest I use for the best match. 2.) How can I tell which firmware ver. I am using to know if I need to update and is there any current issues using a Mac running v.10.13.6. 3.) Do you offer a padded carry bag for the T8S and if not what do you suggest. Thank you, drux53

Mics and other gear I use with the L1 Compact

Ric ·
I have dozens of SM57's and SM58's for those that prefer them. My personal preferences are the Sennheiser E935 and Heil PR35, as they have superior frequency bandwidth, superior gain before feedback and mostly because I despise eating a microphone. My vocals have been described as a cross between Johnny Cash, , Mike Pinera, Tom Jones, Don Ho and Vicente Fernandez and all acoustically non-enhanced. Soft female vocals also work better with the Senneiser E935 and Heil PR35. One's lips can be up...

Feedback from Mic

Hey There, I purchased the S1 Bose Pro System and am loving it. I use a head microphone and am getting really bad feedback from the speaker in certain areas of the room. Can anyone pass on any info as to how to eliminate this? Potentially through the set up? I am green to this so any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi LowG, Thank you for joining the Forum. Is your Shure wireless microphone hand-held or something that you clip to your clothing or wear on your head? Here are some general tips for dealing with Microphone Feedback. Does that help? ST

Re: wireless mic feedback

hello it depends on capsule, You use. A Headset with almost 360° is more liable to feedbacks than a hyper-cardiodid Mic. May be a higher distance to the Array will reduce the feedbacks

Hi LowG, and a warm welcome to the forum from me, too. If you could give us more information regarding your system we may be able to give more precise advice/tips as to finding a way to reduce the feedback problem. Which Shure wireless microphone model are you using? This information will let us know which directionality (polar pattern) the microphone has (directionality means from which side/s the microphone actually hears sound. Omnidirectional means that it receives sound from all sides...

Thank you for the information. I just bought a Shure PGA31. I hope that will help. I've tried moving the L1C. It is really odd because it happens more with one presenter than others. I tried turning down the tone but it got very basey. Oh the mic in this case is only used for speaking. When I used a corded mic for singing -- no problems! Again, thank you for the information.

Hi LowG, thanks for the information regarding the microphone. Is this the one we're talking about? http://cdn.shure.com/specifica...cification_Sheet.pdf If so I've had a look at the specs for it. The polar pattern is cardioid (they say it's unidirectional but the cardioid pattern will probably not be able to reject enough of the signal from the loudspeaker to be feedback free when standing in front of it.

Hi LowG, I run a hire company where we use the Compacts & L1 Model 2's a lot. Headsets are always a lot more feedback prone than hand helds & when you use then with a rear mounted speaker like the Compact you're looking for trouble. A couple of things I can suggest: -The Shure WH20 is the dynamic version of that type of headset. They're reasonably priced & a lot more feedback resistant. -We often use feedback eliminators like the DBX AFS224, AFS2 or DriveRack. Not everyone likes...

Re: Wireless Lavelier Mics & S1 Pro | Very Low Output!

ST ·
Hi KC, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Let's check this in a couple of ways. Connect a wired microphone using an XLR cable to the S1 Pro Channel 1. You should be able to get a loud output with the volume control at 3:00 o'clock. You won't get much output below 12:00 o'clock. Looking at the specifications and the owners manual for the UwMic9 receiver it appears that the output is -6 dB lower than a Shure SM58 hand-held microphone. Based on that, I'd expect you would have turn up...

Dear ST, Thank you for your prompt response! I have connected the XLR out of the UWmic 9 receiver to both the inputs of the Bose SE pro. Even on close to full volume, the output is barely sufficient - it's close 15% of what it gives when used as a Bluetooth speaker. I haven't tried the 3.5 output into the Aux Input. Will try & get back. I have used the same XLR out (from the UWmic 9) into a traditional mixer-amplifier & then to a passive/active speaker with very good results. I think...

I've found that I usually cannot get enough level from my dynamic microphones when plugged directly into the Bose S1 Pro (Shure SM58/Sennheiser 835). This tells me that the Pro doesn't provide the amount of input gain that most other systems do. That's another reason I use a mixer for gigging with my S1s (along with usually needing more than 2 input channels). An inline preamplifier designed for lavalier microphone use or inexpensive mixer may help you.

Re: Wireless Mics

Hi Shyam, Connections for wireless microphones are very similar to using wired microphones. Looking back at your previous posts, I see you have a T1®. That has four channels so you can connect up to four wireless microphone receivers. But you will probably want a least one channel for your backing tracks. So that leaves three. I would find most lavalier microphones are too prone to feedback to use for Karaoke or live performance situations. But handheld microphones are fine when used...

Re: Plugging in additional instruments / mics

Hi ppills3, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm glad you're here. Generally speaking, splitters should not be used as combiners. That is they are okay if you want to divide a signal and send it to two devices. When you turn them around and take two sources, short them together and send the result to an amplifier, things don't work so well. See: Why Not Wye Consider getting a small mixer with at least four inputs. Take the outputs from the mixer and connect them to your...

Re: Plugging in additional instruments / mics

CityFolk ·
Other folks on this forum have used the S1 with the Behringer 1002B mixer which is battery powered and has phantom power (although it’s 24v vs 48v so won’t work for all mics conceivably). That seems to be a cool setup. Undoubtedly, there are other battery powered mixers out there, this is an example of one that’s being actually used in the field.

Re: L1 with a condenser mic

Don’t know if this helps but...We have 2 guitars and 2 mics with the t4 and my buddy uses a Neuman condenser mic and we stand anywhere from 3 to 15 ft in front of it. Never in back of it. 150 shows and counting and never heard microphone feedback from the L1 and he belts and keeps the volume up. Must be something fixable. One of the reasons to buy it is you can stand in front of it and toss the monitors. The projection from the line array is really good so behind the choir should be good for...

Re: Major Vocal Feedback problem.

Bose Pro Community Admin ·
Hello, Rod. This sounds like a good question for the broader owner community (rather than Ask Bose for Help). There may be other suggestions outside what we can provide. May I have your permission to move this discussion to the public forum? It sounds like the TC-Helicon Tone feature in the Mic Mechanic is adding gain to the microphone between songs. It could be doing that because you sing louder than you speak when addressing the audience between songs. To test the idea, take the Mic...

Re: Major Vocal Feedback problem.

Thanks for your reply and suggestions. I will remove the Mic Mechanic unit from the chain as you have advised and report back with the results. I think I will also contact TC Helicon, they may be able to offer some advise/suggestions to resolve my feedback problems. And yes you most certainly can move this discussion to the public forum. Kind regards, Rod.

Re: Major Vocal Feedback problem.

If I had to jump to judgement I would blame the TC Helicon because it adds so many variables to the mix and I had a lot of surprizes when I used one. We have the same set up with same mics and acoustic guitars and can crank it up with it right behind us and no feedback ever. I would doubt it's from within the bose unless it's just broken. I'm sure you thought of this, but strip it down and rebuild it piece by piece with just the Microphone and a guitar with no effects. When it come time to...

@Rod My 2 cents worth -- I found my TCH Harmony GX-T was putting way too much gain on the line. I removed it from the chain and all was well. I use my L1M2 2B1 T1 combo and love what it puts out ... now using an S1 for busking and loving it.

Re: Major Vocal Feedback problem.

Hi troubador, You may be right, excessive gain could be the problem. I know that one of the differences between the original Mic Mechanic and the latest version (ie Mic Mechanic 2) is that there is now no mic gain control/setting so the gain is said to be automatically set by the singer's vocal/input thereby removing the need to manually set microphone levels. Good thing / not so good thing ? not sure! Maybe this is my overall problem, so I'm going to go right back to basics and remove the...
