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...

That's probably accurate, plus at least the same again outside the marquee, right in close, and the rest enjoying the music from other areas nearby. The sound travelled brilliantly.

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...

Re: Would L1 model 2 work as monitors with F1 system

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...

low sound from array

Dave55 ·
Hi I have two L1 array systems inc subs and at gig last night one side had minimum sound from the array(the sub that side was ok), while the other side was very loud and the limiter kept going in the red. The gains on the back were set to 3/4s, so i turned the gain down on the one which was loud and this eliminated the limiter going red. We mix using an Allen&Heath digital mixer and there isn't any way to pan to a side and the main mix out is a single slider. I have had the system for...

Hi Dave, Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable PA Community. I'm sorry you're having a problem with low volume from the array speaker in one of your F1 Model 812s.

I am having the same issue with mine. One of my 812’s is LOUD! The other is noticeably quieter. The quiet one is the one that I am running the main line into. The daisy chained speaker is loud. If I switch the main line to the other speaker then that one is quieter. This makes me believe both of the speakers are functioning correctly it has something to do with the main line in. So I have to contact the dealer?

Re: low sound from array

Hi Charlie 3, If you can run two outputs (left and right) from the mixer, then run each line to one F1 Model 812. Set the Channel volumes on the two F1 Model 812s the same, and control the balance from the mixer. If you prefer to run one line from the mixer, set the volume on the first F1 Model 812. Then bring up the second one to match. Does that help? ST

Re: low sound from array

ST ·
Hi Charlie 3, You're right. The F1 Model 812 LINE OUT is post-volume controls. That means that it's possible for the output signal to be higher than the input. As a result, when you daisy-chain the F1 Model 812s, the second unit can be louder than the first. Thanks for pointing that out. ST

Wow. Thank you for the quick reply. I will try this fix tomorrow and let you know. By the way I’m running everything through my tone match. Running a 1/8 inch out from iPad to channel 4/5 not sure if this has any impact at all. And of course a master out from T1 to 812. Daisy chained from from the bass line out to the other 812 Line in. I greatly appreciate your input.

Okay, I am still having a strange issue with the set up I descrided in my last post. I did eliminate the subs from the equation to try to pinpoint my problem. I am running the master out from the the T1 to one 812. The volume is low. Once I daisy chain the 812 #1 to 812 #2 the #2 is noticeably louder. I have to crank up the 812 #1 to volume level of 7 to equal a volume of 3 on the 812 #2. I have switched cords and order of speakers for daisy chaining. Which ever 812 is my main has a low...

Hi! I know this is the place and the people to help me. I have an L1 M 1S with a T1 and normally running two guitars and two mics in smaller venues - restaurants/bars/VFWs. I find myself in need of more volume because the venues are getting bigger and with the Spring here in Texas new gigs are outside.

If you're looking at an L1® Model II for your larger venues, and outdoors you'll want a B2 bass module anyway. You might retire, trade-in, or sell the L1® Model 1S because you'll never use it if you have the L1® Model II. Well, you may if you have to play in a venue with a low ceiling.

How big will the crowd be? anywhere from 100 to 150 as a minimum depending on the weather. Will you be the feature or background music? both. Folks will be dancing/ chatting/listening. Imagine a bar outside. How many people will be listening to you? listeners will be seated on the outskirts, some in the pavilion. Probably 75 might be just listening/dancing.

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...
