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!

T1 Preset - How do I turn off DJ/Playback High Volume Music?

Lynn ·
Hi there Can you advise please-I recently purchased a B2, and in short I had to undergo firmware updates to the L1 model 2 power stand for the B2 to work in all 3 positions-a Bose retailer did this for me. He also showed me how to increase the output by setting the Tonematch to DJ playback-'high'. Ever since this, and having tried changing this setting to 'Low' (very little difference) my backing tracks now seem to have too much bass, whether I am using the new B2 or my old B1's x 2. Before...

Is this a bug in the App, S1, both or is this how it's supposed to work?

I used two S1s at my gig last weekend and ran in stereo through the app. I played music from my iPhone, which was connected via Bose Connect. I set the bluetooth speaker volumes the same and their volume was equal. I ran two mics and an acoustic guitar through my T1 mixer, then trs from the T1 to the first S1 and then TRS from the output of the first S1 to the second. HOWEVER, when I turned the channel 1 volume up on the first S1, the volume of bluetooth music on the second S1 got much...

Performance Volume S1 Pro

Oldghm ·
Spun off from: S1 Pro, L1 Compact, L1 Model II When I am practicing with the S1, I bring the volume to a level that just fills the room. I don't want to hear it more from the speaker than I do from my head or my guitar, or more from the head or guitar than from the speaker. I try to achieve a level that, to my ears, has no noticeable source. I think, for me, it ^ allows a freedom of expression that I don't get when the volume is turned up high enough that I am more aware of the speaker sound...

Input volume difference between combo jacks (1,2,3) and line inputs (4/5) on T1 Tonematch Engine?

kevinaugustine ·
Hi guys Just a brief question. Should there be a small drop off in sound (5-10%) between the combo jack inputs (1-3) and line inputs 4/5 on the Tone match mixer. I was doing up settings on my Nylon stringed guitar and noticed a difference when I took it from input (2 in this case) and put it into 4/5 The trims, channel volume and master volume were the same on both and both channels were setup identically (same preset, eq, delay, compression reverb etc) Thanks as always!

Re: Tonematch AUX volume boost?!

NickA-at-Bose ·
Hi Jocelyn, Based on your description, I think the best course would be to turn the trim up on the channel, and then turn the channel volume down to balance out the volume increase. It's best to have the trim knob up as high as possible before distortion (as indicated by the red LED above the trim knob). So the trim knob for each channel should be set to this point - this may mean 12 o'clock for channel 1, 9 o'clock for channel 2, and fully clockwise for channel 3. All outcomes are fine as...

Hi Oldghm, When I did the first few recordings I had the microphones at about six feet from the loudspeakers. I was standing in the null zone between the microphones. I had the volume running fairly low - probably like what you described above. I heard more me and less loudspeaker. For the latest recording ( Sample file 3 ), I was running much louder to pick up the sound about twenty feet from the loudspeakers. I wanted to get things up to S1 gig volume. It was loud enough that I was hearing...

I do understand the necessity of being louder than ambiant noise, and in a loud live performance venue, the balance I am speaking of is often not possible. I also understand this experiment is not the same as a gig. I utilize the method I described when I can because I think it makes me better at vocal control. In a practice situation or with a polite listening audience, bringing the system up to a level where, in your performance position the level is just enough to balance with your...

Love this conversation! I too am dependent upon what is coming from the speakers, no matter which Bose system I am using. I make quality video of every single performance with a Zoom Q2n and also quality audio multi track recordings from my Zoom H5 Handheld.

Please always know, when I'm writing it's just one man's opinion. Let me first address something I spoke about but never said in 8 paragraphs when I responded to ST while this was in the other thread. What I "attempt" to do with volume, primarily when rehearsing, but also at a gig if possible, is create the same immersion in a room as ST was thinking he would do with headphones. Of course it is not the same, but depending on speaker placement, spacing there is a level that is hard to...

Hi Oldghm, Oh my. I wasn't looking for a sense of immersion; I think I need isolation. In the context of trying to sing the same passage several times through different loudspeakers; the headphones were to isolate me from the sound of those loudspeakers. I would need to monitor directly off the microphone so I would not hear myself through the loudspeakers. When I can hear myself through the loudspeakers, I have an urge to alter my singing to compensate for the differences between what I...

Sorry ST. I still was not clear. I understand not immersion, but Isolation, and what I was trying to say is I am trying to achieve the same hearing experience, "where I sit or stand in a room", as one would with headphones. The immediacy of headphones, but without the total exclusion of everything else. Yes, in my mind I thought it might work for your experiment. Maybe not. A balance between my natural volume and the speaker volume that comes together, where I am, as being one source, not...

Hi Oldghm, You are describing what I heard when I did the first set of recordings - with the microphones at five-six feet from the loudspeakers. It wasn't until I had things cranked up that I was aware I was compensating for the amplified sound. Yes, I can reach this blissful state of balance. But it's never like that in the places I play. I rehearse at stage volume (sound system is louder than I am) because that's what I hear on the stage. I rehearse my stage sound and everything I do to...

Hi Beau Ryan, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Congratulations on getting your S1 Pro. Yes, the behaviour of Channel 3 volume control is different from Channels 1 and 2. On channel 3, the volume control is digital and the resolution of the control is not as high as the other channels so the transition from zero to Hello Sound is not as smooth. For pictures and more information please see: S1 Pro Channel 3 From your description, your system is working fine. I'm glad you joined us. ST

Hi Joyof60, welcome to the forum. Thanks for joining our community. 3 x Vocal mics + 2 x instrument mics makes 5 mics. As far as I can see the mixer has only 4 mic channels. How are you connecting the mics to the mixer? At the moment I'll treat that as probably being secondary. I can't say any more unless you can describe in more detail how you've got the mics/piano connected. The Compact (as with all L1 systems) is a mono system. This means that it cannot reproduce stereo. There are one or...

Tony, thanks for the response, We are using SM 58 and 57 mics, I am running the 5th mic (a SM57) through the mono jack of the 5/6 channel. I have been running the piano, a Roland RD300NX, through the 11/12 channel as a stereo signal, out of habit I guess. I don't think running it mono will compromise any tones. I had been considering running the main outs through the Channel 1 (MIC) on the L1 and the piano and guitar (mic'd with a SM 57) directly bypassing the mixer through the L1's channel...

Hi Thom, Sounds okay. OK - the problem isn't associated with a specific channel. It might still be in some other part of the mixer (or the L1® Compact). Use a different sound source than the one you were using for your backing tracks. Otherwise, if volume fluctuations persist we won't know if the issue is the source or the L1® Compact. Let's see if that makes a difference. Did you get your L1® Compact at a bricks 'n mortar store? ST

Hi Joyof60, A microphone has less output than an Instrument (Guitar/Keyboards for example) but if it's working for you it's OK to use the 5/6 channel. Running the way I suggested is what the inputs and outputs L/MONO are designed for. It also saves on cable connections. Regarding the use of Channel 1 for microphones panned hard to one side, and channel 2 for instruments panned hard to the other side: This is one of the possibilities I meant when I wrote this: I would have suggested this in...

Thanks again for the reply and help, greatly appreciated. I do understand the cancelling effect of signals/sound waves out of phase which is why my initial use of the channel 2 on the L1 was to use the RCA jacks somehow thinking they would stay separate, not sure how I thought that could happen in a mono unit but Bose has been doin wonderful things in unconventional ways for many years now. I am an advocate of all their products and own many, wave, acoustic wave, headphones, ear buds etc.,...

Hi Keith, actually the RCA's/3.5mm should sum to mono well because this is what Bose suggests using for iPhones etc. I wasn't thinking straight there. If you can, set up the Compact somewhere and feed it with mp3's (Channel 2 RCA or 3.5mm Input. If possible also run it a bit louder than normal living room volume. If it's OK there it should be OK at a gig. As I suggested in my last post: " Everything panned hard left and then to channel 2 set to line, with the SM 57 going directly into...

Hi Keith, Regarding the sensitivity of channel 1 compared to channel 2, ST has already answered this question. This is also why I suggested putting your 5th microphone through this channel should channel 5/6 on your mixer not manage to get the SM 57 loud enough. If you use this for panning all microphones to one side and putting them through channel 1 you can compensate for the extra sensitivity by keeping the signal going into it a little "cooler". One thing to remember with channel 1 is...
