L1s and compact with t8s and monitors?

Charlie ·
I have a job this weekend where I would like to use my L1s and compact as the “mains” on either side of the stage, but I may have to use a qsc and/or my s1 pro wedge as well (for the drummer and the lead singer). I just got the t8s, but I’m not entirely sure how to connect all this properly. My assumption is to use 1/4in trs cables from the outs on the t8s into the L1s and channel 2 on the compact. Would I run the wedges into the main outs on the t8s?

Connecting Tone Match 8 to L1 Compact via xlr

Phil Milligan ·
Hello, When I connect my ToneMatch 8 ch with my L1 Compact via xlr to xlr, I get a loud hiss. When I go mono 1/4" to xlr via transformer connection, the hiss subsides 90%. (still a little line noise, but not distracting). Is there a reason the xlr out to xlr in would be so noisy? Thank you for your time!

Bose Compact Elevated?

Harry 3 ·
Hello! I have had a few "standing on the floor at audience level" church gigs lately (Just my acoustic guitar and vocal). I decided to try to elevate my Bose Compact to get up over people’s heads when they are standing (See pic). It's typical for people to stand at church when they are singing along with me. This method seems to really help project sound and also helped reduce feedback issues. It felt like the bass/lows were a bit thinner? (Maybe my imagination) Anyone else do this? Or...

L1 compact buzzing

houpts ·
I have a Bose L1 compact. A while ago, it started making a hum or buzz when I turn the volume up. It's very distracting and it seems to be getting worse. I don't know what to do about it. I'm playing a guitar through a Baggs Venue, but it also happens with a Radial Tonebone preamp. The louder the volume, the louder the buzz.

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

ST ·
I was telling a buddy about my great experience playing a Mesa Boogie Lonestar 30 1x12 combo amp over the weekend. He's a drummer but he knows that amp and really likes it. The fellow who owns it saw how much I liked it and offered to sell it to me at a great price. Why? Because both he are the amp are 65 (amp in pounds, he in years) and although he loves the sound, he hates moving it around. A few years ago I might have snapped up that amp in a heartbeat. But as I told my buddy the drummer,...

DIY T1 mixer mount onto an L1 Compact.

I, (and apparently other people) wish that my T1 tone match could mount to my L1 compact. I did review the other options and eventually purchased the Bose mic stand adapter which works well enough, but still wished for the on-the-column option. In studying/measuring the bracket inside the base which holds the column, I started looking at off the shelf items that might be able to emulate the Bose bracket and allow me to attach the T1 bracket that came stored in the lid.

Re: ATTN L1 Compact Users

Hi Craig, I use the Compact primarily in two configurations. Private house concerts, dinner parties, some small venue gigs that are for one set only, I go direct in with mic and guitar. No peripheral equipment. It's not necessarily the sound I want, but I sacrifice a bit for simplicity when it seems appropriate. On gigs that last 2 or more sets in venues up to the working capacity of the Compact, I use a harmony box as an interface. It has eq/effects capability with multiple presets and...

Without being too lazy, I tend to agree with all the comments from "Oldghm". The lack of tonematch interface is almost unforgivable and lacks an understanding of the Bose User base. There are many "New" competitave choices out there with more inputs, EQ and at least reverb. Thanks for requesting input from the users this time.

Hi Craig, First, I've got to tell you that the L1® Compact with the Kemper Profiler makes a great guitar rig. This is my backline of choice when playing in non-L1® bands. I also use it with the Kemper at small gigs where my band-mates are using an L1® Model II. They'll be the rhythm section and I don't need much low-end support for what I'm doing. Most of the time I run my L1® Compact with the T1®. Typical setup for Band gigs T1® Channels Microphone: Neumann KMS 105 (requires phantom power)...

using L 1 C without Tonematch. As a delay from Amp out to TS Input or with another DJ Mixer or Livemixers mono sum like ST shows here. For little DJ Use or as a keyboard Amp with Mic with RCA or Mini Jack, Mic Input & Tonematch at Line Level, for High Z at Tonematch at Guitar level

Hi Craig, I bought the L1 Compact just over a year ago along with the T1 to cover smaller performances (nursing homes, retirement villages, small church sanctuaries & socials) that didn't warrant our normal two Model 1's. Plus, I keep it in the music room where it's easy to pick up and go, rather than pull the trailer out of the garage with all the ancillary stuff (carts, rack with wireless gear, multiple B1's, product table, spare gear, etc.) Based on my experience with the Tonematch...

Hi Craig, I would echo what Oldghm has put on his "improvement list" originally posted by Oldghm: "ToneMatch port Lower bottom end, enough to be effective for the Porchboard or similar foot bass devices. This is what I miss the most when using the Compact. The same spectral range as the B1 would be great. More on board eq capability. Possibly with a simple reverb or delay. I would like one more independent input and perhaps a more flexible design of the mixer section. A few more dB. The...

Re: Insulating L1 Compact

Hi tdesjarlais, the idea of acoustically insulating/damping the insides of loudspeaker enclosures is certainly not new and has been used in High-end HiFi loudspeakers for decades, and it does contribute to a more defined sound. tdesjarlais wrote: "I recently insulated my home speakers ...

Hi Craig, I use 2 Compacts for band rehearsals. One for my guitar modeler and vocal, the other for the lead vocal who occasionally plays guitar. Playing live, we use one or both Compacts as monitor/backline and my 2 L1 Model II units as mains if room allows. I'd love to see some verb built in to complete the Compact's intended purpose for the singer/acousitc player.

Hi Craig, I'm starting the use of two L1 Compacts in our local church for the preacher, worship duo (Singer and guitar player) and sometimes one keyboard. The main use in terms of time is for the preacher mic. Our first impressions are very good, because the voice (preacher and singer) sounds beautiful, and also the acoustic guitar. I'm dealing with some noise while using both units with a mixer, but obviously it's not fault to the systems. I think it is a cable (length or type) problem.
