Big day out for my F1 and L1 systems!

Each year for the last few years I've provided front-of-house sound, DJ and MC services to a vineyard for a popular food, wine and music festival. This year I had a great time and my sound system worked a treat. Here's what the set up looked like. Here’s the equipment list: 2 x Bose F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeakers (Front of House) 2 x Bose F1 Subwoofers (Front of House) 2 x Bose L1 Compacts (fold-back monitors on the stage) 1 x Bose L1 Model 2 Loudspeaker with B2 Bass Module for...

Re: Unwanted radio signals coming through PA

MattS-at-Bose ·
Hi Manuel, Sorry for the trouble but congrats on the game! This is not a common complaint but if I were in that situation, I would disconnect the source at the power stand to narrow down where the radio signal may be entering. If the radio disappeared, I would begin the process of elimination by temporarily removing or substituting upstream cables, instruments etc. to narrow down which gear might be causing it. Faulty guitar electronics or a bad cable are possibilities. If it happens again,...

Unwanted radio signals coming through PA

Manuel ·
In March 2017 I purchased an L1 Model II w/ B1 Bass module. Have play several gigs using the system and it has worked wonderfully every time. At a recent gig (Bohemian Restaurant in Chicago) we experienced radio signals (Cubs game) emanating from the speakers. Why would this happen and how can I prevent this from happening in the future? BTW...the Cubs won!

Would L1 model 2 work as monitors with F1 system

dbmurcia ·
Hi, some background info. My sons are in a Coldplay tribute band and do gigs in venues for between 200 - 800 people (inside and and outside). I recently upgraded their PA to 2x F1 tops & 2x 812 subs the FOH sound is fantastic, really happy with them. The problem is they now have a stage set up with a stage runway of around 4 meters for the vocalist. I have to say the crowd love it and it makes it more Coldplay. The issue is major feedback with the PA situated in the conventional area...

ST ·
Hi dbmurcia, Thank you for joining the Community. This is a wonderful question! Looking at your diagram (thank you!) - it appears the distance from the L1®s to the F1s is about 12 meters. Is that correct? Overall, I think this could work very well. If the distance is 12 meters between the L1®s and the F1s, you'll want to introduce about 40 milliseconds delay between the L1®s and F1s so the sound is synchronized for the people who can hear both. That is: for the people who are in the area...

L1 Classic Died last night....ugh. Now What?

seamuspg ·
My L1 Classic finally pooped out on me last night, mid-gig, and so now I must bid farewell, but also make a decision. I loved the Classic, but I am not someone who believes the L1 is the only PA setup capable of great sound. My one gripe, (or hesitancy to diving right back into the L1) is both setup time and the lugging of its components. I play solo acoustic, or with a bass player in small venues, bars, restaurants, etc... It still takes me 3 trips to/from car and approximately 25-30mins to...

Hi seamuspg, I will admit upfront that I have been a Bose L1 fan since the very beginning. That said, I too had one of my two Classics bite the dust this month after 14 years of service (fortunately at rehearsal, not during a gig) and faced the same choice. Please take ST's advice and talk to Customer Support. At first, I was a bit disappointed that my Classics could not be repaired, but Bose treated me very well and I now own 2 L1 MIIs to replace my Classics. The trade program is awesome.

Hi seamuspg, Sorry to hear about the demise of your L1 Classic. When a piece of equipment eventually dies most of us consider how to replace it. Should it be a newer version of the gear or something completely different? Very true. There are many systems available which are capable of delivering good sound. I would be asking myself questions like this. How important is it for me to have a really good sound that is the same everywhere in a square or rectangular room, rather than just within a...

I had a Classic & Mod 1 fail on me within 1 year. Neither could be repaired. I ended up replacing both with L1/Mod2's. I wasn't happy about the non repairable situation, but they offered discounts on upgrades to the Mod2's. They have worked out well so far. I preferred the connectivity options on the Classic/Mod1. The connection options on the Mod2 are pretty limited unless you have the Tonematch or a standard mixer. But they are easier to move & take up less floor space. There are...

Any info on how this unit performs volume wise in comparison with the Compact? Will it handle an audience size up to 100?

Re: Bose S1 Pro System

Hi MCG, The Bose S1 Pro is more portable than the L1® Compact. It has three channels, reverb, and Bluetooth connectivity for backing tracks. It also functions in three different positions. The L1 Compact is louder and will project farther than the Bose S1 Pro. This is partly because the L1® Compact has a built-in stand (the extensions), and more drivers in the articulated array. The L1® Compact is likely a better choice for an audience of 100 people. That's not to say that S1 Pro couldn't do...

Bose aren't very helpful when giving specs on how loud their products are. I have an L1 +B2 & people always ask me, how many watts is your PA? I can only reply 'hopefully loud enough'. I suspect that the S1 Pro will struggle outside, volume wise.

I was apparently pretty close with my assumption in the "A new Bose coming?" thread where I wrote " If this is really an official Bose Picture/Teaser (I've not seen it in this entirety before) I would guess that Bose is introducing a self/battery powered loudspeaker/monitor for buskers etc. " Unless it's an absolute give-away however I can't see me getting this one past my wife as I bought the new Hughes + Kettner Era1 just before Christmas.

Well this is not what I thought might be coming, but very close to something I have been saying Bose needed for some time. This combines some of the best features of the small Bose monitors with a mixer and battery power, I think that is a winner. I was hoping for a bit more powerful Compact with better mixer / connectivity. I sold A Marshall AS50 a while back because it didn't get any use, but I think if it had sounded as good as the Compact I would have used it. I take a guitar nearly...

Great! The important thing will be how honest 6 hours Batterylife are. Is it for 10% power or for 80%? I'm using 2 L1 M2 with 4 B2's and I love them. For bluetooth I took 2 of the Bose Soundlink Revolve+. My Bose Dealer told me the Battery would last for 12 hours. I used them in party mode. a bit more then 2 hours and they were empty. I hope this wont be the same here. I will buy 2 of them soon.

Accurate and true practical battery life is a major concern of mine too Auron. The only way we are really going to know is after all the frontier explorers start reviewing and giving feedback to us. If it doesn't give at least a good four hours at full throttle playing it isn't really of much practical use to me. I do wish the bluetooth included functioning the basic volume,bass,treble,reverb controls. If this is on the ground or behind you mounted, doing those gotta be fast adjustments are...

As far as the S1 Pro, I do wish they'd publish SOME kind of guidance about size of audience, wattage, etc. Even though it was hidden, you can find that info on the L1. (130 for the Compact and 500 for the L1 MII) I'd also love to see a compact with a little more power (200 watts) and bluetooth input as well.

Well, as a big Bose fan and one who has defended Bose against the Bose-bashers with facts and experience, I have to say I am somewhat disappointed at the S1 Pro (and the new Tonematches as well, but that's another post). I own a L1M2 w/2 B1s, a Compact and two T1's. I play in a duo as well as a 5- piece blues band, and use the L1s for both, and love it. We often use a Behringer powered sub for a little extra thump. My duo partner also has a Compact and T1, with a little coaxing from me.

Hi Scottcald, Here's a work in progress. Bose S1 Pro compared to Bose L1® Compact You'll find the sound pressure level and dispersion characteristics in the table on the linked page. It's difficult to do a comparison with respect to the number of people in the audience - especially because the dispersion is different and you have so many combinations of doing things. The S1 Pro is available now and I'm sure people will start coming here to talk about how it performs in various settings.

Hi Stos2, Thanks for weighing in. It's nice to see you again. I see you've posted in this thread too: Bose ToneMatch® mixers T8S and T4S I'll catch up with you there soon. Bose worked with lots of musicians during the development of the S1 Pro to engineer a product that would deliver value, especially where portability was a key requirement. It sounds like you are well served by your L1 Compacts, and working at the outer edges of its capabilities. I understand why the S1 Pro is not the...

I got this from The Bose Professional Facebook page. "The S1 system runs at 40 watts. It sounds small but we wanted to make the S1 as efficient as possible to achieve the best possible performance for it's size, especially if you are using the optional battery. The S1 has a 3-element array so you get more coverage and SPL, and since the drivers are precisely matched to the Class-D amp inside and controlled by Bose DSP, you can expect surprisingly big sound for it size. Hope this info helps!

Re: Bose S1 Pro System

KingBiscuit ·
I'm certainly not an expert in amplification but, when learning to play Blues Harmonica, I learned more than I ever wanted to know. Harmonicas are very hard to smplify without feedback. In any event, my understanding is that sound pressure level is a better indicator of how much coverage you'll get that the rating in watts. That said, I'd think the S1, based on given specs, will rival a compact.

Re: Bose S1 Pro System

Seagullman ·
I'd just like to comment on Paul Rumble's and KingBiscuit's last posts: Regarding SPL says more than wattage. I absolutely agree with that because wattage doesn't take into account the sensitivity of the loudspeakers being used (given in dB/per 1 Watt/at 1 meter distance from the loudspeaker). For anyone interested in reading about how wattage, SPL, loudness etc. are linked, these might make interesting reading. http://www.sengpielaudio.com/c...lator-efficiency.htm...

Good information Tony. I guess a Hooterville way of looking at it is there is a big cost difference between the two. The extra plastic for the tower in the Classic wouldn't cost that much. I would hope if I paid the extra bucks I'd get a better system. What if you bought 2 S1s and Daisy Chained them together. Placed them 10 or 15 feet apart. For a little more $ than a compact, you'd get great coverage and versatility and maybe more volume. I love discussing the possibilities but in the end,...

Re: Bose S1 Pro System

The advantage of having 2 would mean that for a little more than the price of a Compact you could have a stereo system. And for me I also don't see any reason to change what I already have as the S1 doesn't really offer me anything to warrant laying out for it as I'm extremely happy with my Model II + Compact systems. Regarding the "more volume", for me it would only be interesting if the coverage in the room itself was comparable to a Compact.

Hi Algis, thanks for posting the link to the Bose specs for the L1 + B2 combination. It does say how many watts the system has, but if he/you read what's in the links I put up earlier today you can see that the wattage doesn't really say much on its own. For the 250W high/mid + the 250W low end the Model II can certainly cover an extremely large area. Not deafeningly loud, but who really wants that anyway? For busking purposes you don't really need to be terrifically loud. In most countries...

Yes You are right, because L1 sound field area is 180 degrees & frequency response is more linear. It's more difficult to compare to other type of speakers. I only show where to find Bose equipment specifications.. I'm using Bose L1 II , Bose monitors 310 series , T1 mixers , Bose F1 system & A1 amplifiers . I'm not complain to anything . If people need some specifications , they will find if really need .

I hope I'll be able to try out the S1 soon.

However there's no reverb & the eq is very limited & only on the the mic channel. It's also a bit more expensive than the S1. The other top end busking amp is the AER compact mobile. Also 60W,...
