Unable to connect to my S1 pro using the connect app.

DJ Subie Z ·
I recently updated my bose connect app from version 8.1.0 to 8.1.1 thinking that was the reason I was unable to connect my s1 pro speaker. Updating the connect app did not fix the problem, then I updated my S1 speaker from the previous software version to the newest Firmware version 7.0.11 using my PCat http://btu.bose.com . Now I have both the connect app and the s1 pro updated to the latest version, but the problem still exists. So far, I deleted the app and reinstalled it (iPhone XR),...

Intermittent Problems with PS1 Power Stand

Patty ·
We have two LI Model 1 systems that we purchased ten years ago for a small acapella chorus. One of the power stands is working intermittently. If we let it warm up for 15-20 minutes it works OK but we haven't tested it through an hour-long performance. I contacted BOSE and was told that the newer power stands will not accept the L1 Cylindrical Radiator Speakers that fit into our current base. Do I have any other option other than replacing both the power stand and the speakers?

Adding the bottom speakers to L1 array

I have the L1 array. The top part of the array has the 12 speakers, but the bottom half is just the stand. Can I add the bottom 12 speakers/stand to my system, and if so where can I purchase it. I have been looking and can't seem to find it online. Thanks for any help

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?

Connecting External Speakers to L1 Model ll

David Siegel ·
I use the L1 Model ll with subwoofer to support a four-person band in small to medium-size venues, along with a Behringer non-powered mixer. Has worked fine. I'll shortly be playing a room with its own sound system. As I prefer "the devil I know", I was wondering if/how I can connect the house "mains" to the L1...using the house mains as additional external speakers. Possible?

New Vs Used L1

Limbo ·
I am thinking of buying a used L1M2B2 system. Other then the obvious blown speakers, sub, or cosmetics, are there other things I need to look out for? Speaking of speakers or drivers, how do I check the quality of the 24 speakers in the lower and upper column? Thanks to all for a great active forum.

Connect Bose Wireless Speakers to L1 Model II

I wonder if I connect a T4S "Out (L/R)" to the wireless link "Aux In" then use the Sound Touch App to configure Bose speakers on the wireless WIFI link (not bluetooth) if this would enable remote wireless speaker capability from the L1 model SII. See below. Thanks - Gordon

Heat

Victor12 ·
As a general question, is it normal for your S1 Pro to heat up while in use? I don't mean warm. There is burning heat coming off and I just bought the System a few days ago and have only connected my guitar. The heat comes from the controllers not the battery. Ive have bought speakers before and this usually happens after a year of use or more (speakers have amplifiers).

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 ...

Re: Wireless transmitter/receiver to use with two S1 pro speakers

Hi again, There are some considerations with the S1 Pro system because it is so portable. You may be looking for A battery powered receiver (the part that goes into the S1 Pro system input). A battery powered transmitter. If you want to replace the wire that you use to daisy chain two S1 Pro systems, the transmitter would take the signal from S1 Pro Line Out and transmit that to the receiver on the second S1 Pro system. Bluetooth is great for sending prerecorded music from a Bluetooth...

Thanks for the info... more specifically looking for ideas to go from a mixer out to wireless transmitter to wireless receiver (battery powered) into Bose s1 pro. Alto stealth wireless for speakers is the type of system I'm thinking of, but recevers are not battery powered. Or, perhaps a Bluetooth transmitter that would connect to mixer out and then pair to the s1 pro Bluetooth. https://www.sweetwater.com/sto...tem-for-loudspeakers

Hi Harry Thanks for bringing this topic up. WIRELESS transmission. I play what we in Denmark call dinner music. Groups: up to 120 people. My setup is: Piano - Tone match4 - Compact L1 cabled - Wireless to second Compact L1. Currently I use a XVive U2 (which is made for instruments) between the first and second Compact L1. It works, but from time to time the quality is too poor because of too much electronic noise in the room I think. Wonder if anyone has any wireless transmission experience.

I recommend buying what you can afford. I have not seen them much cheaper used but if you find something and it sounds good I'd buy it. But do test it out. ¸.•*¨*•♫♪

Re: New Vs Used L1

CityFolk ·
Agree with @Holy Jalapeno it seems that Bose L1s hold their value in the used market. Besides testing out the sound, I would look for signs of extreme use. If it looks like it’s been through the ringer, I would be a bit hesitant. I would try to get an idea of its usage context. FOr example, was it used by a small acoustic group or a full size electric band with bass and drums that might push the limits of the unit? Having said all that, we bought a shopworn L1 Classic from Guitar Center...

I would say, yes, they do hold their value BUT still, you can find used units for way cheaper than brand new. I researched (forever) and finally found a used system in excellent condition from GC.

Hi Gordo, That's a really interesting idea. It looks like it should work, but I spent some time there trying but to no avail.

What model? How many? Do you have a SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter? Thanks, ST

Thanks ST for the prompt response. I have not yet purchased the speakers or the adapter. Trying to confirm it will work before I invest the $. I plan on having 2 or 3 speakers. The area to be covered is an open air courtyard of approximately 10,000 square feet. There are trellis and walls so I can mount the speakers if necessary. I am open on the speaker option also.

Hi Gordo, I got things working exactly as you showed us in your diagram. I can't recommend this approach for a professional setting.

This is audible when you can hear both the L1 Model II and the wireless speaker. You would not notice it if you could hear...
