I am Thankful!

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hi everyone, it is that time of year when we can reflect on the year... and offer thanks. I am thankful for the Bose F1 components that have integrated so well in my DJ and Live Sound business. These light weight, powerful and amazing sounding speakers/subs were the tools I was lacking but needed for quite some time... very very happy with my investment! Thank you Bose for another year with great gear!! -JD Bass

Hi Rob, Welcome here! and congratulations on getting your Model II. Yes, you can safely plug in a guitar, keyboard or mp3 player into channels 1, 2, or 3 when you have the Phantom Power turned on. Here's a little background: The Phantom Power is only applied to the XLR connection in the channels 1, 2, 3 combo jacks. All the devices you mentioned would typically be connected using the 1/4" jack. Any properly wired XLR connection to a device or microphone that does not require Phantom Power...

Tonematch phantom power ?

Rob 4 ·
Hi, i'm the proud owner of a model II and about to buy a tonematch to get the most out of this magnificent beast. Most of the time i will be needing the phantom power just on channel one but i know that phantom power applies to channel 1-3. It is not yet clear to me if i can safely plug in a guitar, keyboard or mp3 player on channel 2 and/or 3 when phantom power is turned on? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I'm from Europe (the Netherlands), unfortunately no promotion for me. For now i'm testing the bose at different lociations with different setups (choir, open mics, acapella-groups). The T1 will mostly be used performing in churches and restaurants. As a pianist i'm into popular music and jazz. The model II is perfect for those kind of venues: finally i can hear my piano as it should be heard: natural, crisp and at a comfortable soundlevel. Love it!

Hi Rob, If you're in North America - there's a 10% promotion on the T1® until the end of December. Bose never talks about products that may or may not be in development. If you can use a T1® now, then get it now. Hey, if you have a couple of minutes, please tell us about your music. ST

Thanks ST, that helps a lot! Gonna buy one a.s.a.p. You do not happen to know if Bose is planning on releasing an updated T1 with (slightly) more connections and/or Wifi-capabilities soon (that would be the ultimate upgrade)

T1 power supply hums with other amplifiers

Timbass ·
Irrespective of location (to eliminate mains hum from other sources) tests give the following: Bass with ordinary mag pickup - plugged directly into any mixer or amplifier = no hum. Bass plugged into T1 fed input/output from L1 Model II via its ethernet cable = no hum on any outputs. Bass plugged into T1 fed from T1 external power supply = hum, on all outputs including USB, irrespective of what amplifier it is feeding or none. Even with no outputs connected, the hum level can be seen on T1...

Hi Timbass, It sounds like you've done everything possible to isolate the issue. I agree. It's probably a fault in the T1 Power Supply. If the T1 Power Supply is less than 2 years old, it may still be under warranty. You'll have to contact Bose in your location to see if you are covered. If that isn't applicable, then I'd go to an authorized Bose dealer and test the T1® with a new T1 Power Supply. If that works, buy it. I'm sorry that I don't have better news.

Power/fault LED on L1 Model II base

Diane g ·
The unit has been working fine for some months now. But now I notice the power/fault LED is not lighting up at all. At times it begins to come on blue and then goes out. Other times it does not come on at all. However the system has power and works fine. Is there a light that needs replaced? Is there a shop I can take it to so it can be looked at? I live near Tampa Florida. thanks Diane

L1 1S Power Base

I was at an auction the other day and I bought the speaker column and case from a L1 1S system. I knew all the parts weren't there for the complete system when I bought it but the price was too good to pass up. So now I'm home and it seems that the other parts are going to be hard to come by.

Tony, thanks for the response, We are using SM 58 and 57 mics, I am running the 5th mic (a SM57) through the mono jack of the 5/6 channel. I have been running the piano, a Roland RD300NX, through the 11/12 channel as a stereo signal, out of habit I guess. I don't think running it mono will compromise any tones. I had been considering running the main outs through the Channel 1 (MIC) on the L1 and the piano and guitar (mic'd with a SM 57) directly bypassing the mixer through the L1's channel...

Hi Joyof60, welcome to the forum. Thanks for joining our community. 3 x Vocal mics + 2 x instrument mics makes 5 mics. As far as I can see the mixer has only 4 mic channels. How are you connecting the mics to the mixer? At the moment I'll treat that as probably being secondary. I can't say any more unless you can describe in more detail how you've got the mics/piano connected. The Compact (as with all L1 systems) is a mono system. This means that it cannot reproduce stereo. There are one or...

Hi Joyof60, A microphone has less output than an Instrument (Guitar/Keyboards for example) but if it's working for you it's OK to use the 5/6 channel. Running the way I suggested is what the inputs and outputs L/MONO are designed for. It also saves on cable connections. Regarding the use of Channel 1 for microphones panned hard to one side, and channel 2 for instruments panned hard to the other side: This is one of the possibilities I meant when I wrote this: I would have suggested this in...

Hi Keith, actually the RCA's/3.5mm should sum to mono well because this is what Bose suggests using for iPhones etc. I wasn't thinking straight there. If you can, set up the Compact somewhere and feed it with mp3's (Channel 2 RCA or 3.5mm Input. If possible also run it a bit louder than normal living room volume. If it's OK there it should be OK at a gig. As I suggested in my last post: " Everything panned hard left and then to channel 2 set to line, with the SM 57 going directly into...

Thanks again for the reply and help, greatly appreciated. I do understand the cancelling effect of signals/sound waves out of phase which is why my initial use of the channel 2 on the L1 was to use the RCA jacks somehow thinking they would stay separate, not sure how I thought that could happen in a mono unit but Bose has been doin wonderful things in unconventional ways for many years now.

Sorry to cont. with the drama here, but should Channel 1 be considerably hotter than channel 2?

Hi Keith, Regarding the sensitivity of channel 1 compared to channel 2, ST has already answered this question. This is also why I suggested putting your 5th microphone through this channel should channel 5/6 on your mixer not manage to get the SM 57 loud enough. If you use this for panning all microphones to one side and putting them through channel 1 you can compensate for the extra sensitivity by keeping the signal going into it a little "cooler". One thing to remember with channel 1 is...

Hi Keith, OK I can understand you wanting to do this. Are you having any success along these lines. From what you're writing it appears that the "loss of volume" is not always there. Correct. A balanced mono cable here is a TRS cable. The 1/4" input channel of Channel 2 will accept either a 1/4" mono cable (guitar cable) or a 1/4" TRS cable (stereo cable). The advantage of the TRS (balanced) is that it's not as susceptible to interference as a cable which isn't balanced. There is one other...

Re: L1 - Model 1 ---- Power Control Lamp

F1 812 Power Supply Problem

Mateus Wendland ·
Good afternoon I am the owner of two F1 812 bose in about 1 year. One of the speakers on the first use was defective in its power supply after about 12 hours of use, and it stopped while playing PC music at a very low volume. I even opened the speaker and found a defective 22n60 right on the primary input circuit of the power supply, which burned the fuse. Changed the defective 22n60 the speaker went back to normal operation, having operated after that for several hours without any problem.

POWERED mixer into L1 Compact

turp111 ·
I have the L1 Compact and I love it. I also have a Carvin RX1200L Powered mixer. I'd like to use that mixer for when I'm playing with multiple musicians and run it all through the Bose. There are two outputs on the mixer (L/R) that are separate from the main speaker outs and I'm assuming this is what I would use; however, I'm curious about running power from the mixer amp into the Bose. Is there a good way to do this or should I not even use that mixer? I've attached the manual to this post.

Re: POWERED mixer into L1 Compact

Hello, Thank you for attaching the manual for the mixer! Yes, you'll want to use the main outputs on the front of the mixer (marked 17 in the manual) to send a signal to the Compact. Those are line level outputs, so it will not damage the Compact. Specifically, I would just use the Left XLR out and adapt it to a 1/4" to connect into channel 2 on the Compact. Then, on the Compact, set the switch to Line Level. You'll want to just use the left output from the mixer because the Compact's 1/4"...

L1 Model II Power Stand - analog input blown

IketheProducer ·
This is one of the most embarrassing things that I've ever done...had a bar gig where we had to use a lift from the alley to get our gear up to the venue but the staff wasn't ready so we ended up short on time to set up. I'd been using my system as a bass amp and to mic the kick (T1) at smaller venues. The stage space was awfully cramped so our guitarist (who brought his PA) asked to run the monitor out from his powered mixer into my tower to save space since there was no room for wedges.

A1 amp sounds like a zipper when turning power off

kellylee ·
my A1 amp about 9 months old being used to power a B2 cabinet is sounding like a zipper when I turn the power off. I started turning the A1 power off separately from the rack when I noticed it popping all by itself without having any audio a few weeks ago. I removed the other device a DBX crossover to make sure it wasn't that. You can confirm my suspicions that the amp is going bad though. Thank you. T1 to the L1C to the DBX to the A1 to the B2 to my ears is a formula for a good acoustic box.
