What are the optimum settings for zEQ and Para EQ for Karaoke singing on T1?

Sam K ·
Hi - Currently, I have an L1 Model II and T1 Tonematch using pre-built scenario of DJ/Playback in T1 and Shure 58A Beta Microphones on Channels 1-3. I use Channel 4/5 for playing Karaoke Tracks from a laptop. With this scenario I do not get much base and more treble. I was wondering whether I should set zEQ and Para EQ, but need some advise on optimum settings for Lows, Meds and Highs. Open to other suggestions. Thanks in advance! Sam K

L1 Model I, no response from B1 Bass module

Have an L1 M1 with issues and seeking advice. The bass won't work. If we unplug the bass unit the 24 speaker work fine and I can hear the music. (Just less bass). Plug the bass in and the whole lot sounds very tinny. There's also a nasty buz now when we turn the unit on. Checked all leads, bass feed and link for second B1. any advice on other checks please ?

B2 Bass Module cutting out intrmitantly

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...

Mixing L1 / F1

koop1975 ·
Hello, my band is just gearing up and we are using my L1 Model II with (2) B1 bass modules and a T1 to handle my vocals and acoustic guitar during practice. I also have a F1 stack, but only one side (collecting dust). I love the way the L1 sounds, and how easy it is to set up/take down. The F1 stack is fine too, but I need to figure out my next move. My question is, is there any way to have both systems play nicely together? In other words, can I use what I have and add one more piece of the...

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

Connecting 2 S1's to L1 Model 2 w/ T1 Tonematch

Larger Venue Signal Chain Concern

Hi. I just got my L1 Model II, B1 Bass and T8S last week and have been rehearsing with my acoustic-duo mate in my home studio.

Kemper Profiling Amp and the L1 Model II, (or L1 Compact or S1 Pro)

Speaker recommendation

Joseph Ford ·
Hey bose family, wanted your suggestion on what system to get. We're a church in a 100ft x 50ft building with a raised stage(25ft-35ft) along the middle of the long side. We're currently using 2 Model L1 compacts as the main speakers . Sitting at either edge of the stage in front of the musicians, singers, and preacher. While these sound clear they lack in base and there at the limiter often. So were thinking of upgrading and using the compacts as monitors for them. What do you suggest?

I am a solo act, singer and guitarist, and am playing bigger stages now. Please tell me if purchasing an LI Model II is even a good idea, and if I can connect it to my Model I for a bigger sound for more people and bigger stages. And, in addition to buying the new Model II, do I need to purchase anything else, like cords or something? Please answer as best you can with PICTURES. That'd make it much easier to understand!

Re: F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofers - having trouble getting my F1s to have the power and punch

ST ·
Hi Slaughter, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Try this: Connect the outputs of the Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2 AI to the F1 Model 812 inputs. Volume Controls and Signal / Clip lights Typically you will want to set your source (usually a mixer or T1 ToneMatch ® Audio Engine or ToneMatch Mixer [1] ) to the maximum you can without clipping. When setting the Volume Control on the F1 Model 812 you can turn up the Volume Control until you see solid red, and then turn it down a little.

Re: F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofers - having trouble getting my F1s to have the power and punch

SoundGeek ·
Personally, I would advise running the subs from an Aux channel instead of being pass-throughs to the mains. This allows you to have more control over how much bottom end you have in relation to the mains and can easily vary it as needed through the whole event. That's just my personal preference but I'm a sound tech so I'm at the mixer during the entire event/show etc. Even without a sound tech (and varying the subs by song/desired effect/etc.), I'm confident that you could get a strong...

I'm sorry but I haven't used the UC Surface app or the Presonus 16:4:2 board, but I can look at the manual if you need assistance. Yes, you would have a separate XLR cable for each speaker. However, I would run both of the subs off of the same Aux channel. (two physical connections on the 16:4:2 but you setup both of those outputs to be driven by your single desired Aux channel for the sub mix) Then you only put the things in that Aux mix that need to go to the subs. such as: Keys, Kick,...

Re: F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofers - having trouble getting my F1s to have the power and punch

Yes, I have used it on occasion but very rarely since I mainly use Aux fed subs. The way that you set the switches on the 812 and the sub varies depending on whether you run the XLR cable to the 812 first or the sub first. ("Daisy Chain" setup that you currently use) See the attachment from the Bose F1 manual for the recommended switch settings. Which speaker do you currently go to directly from the mixer, 812 or Sub?
