F1 Efficency Saves The Day!

I was hired to provide sound for an outdoor concert where they would be using a generator for power. Right before sound check the military 31,000 watt generator burst into flames and the power cut out! Scrambling at the last minute the event director was able to come up with two other generators - a 4000 watt and a 3000 watt (I got the 4000 watt and the backline and lights ran off the 3000 watt... Originally I had two 812 tops and two F1 subs hooked up... because I didn't want to add to any...

L1 System for DJs & crowd size. What do you use?

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hey everyone, I wanted to share my results with my fellow DJs having to do with L1 Systems and crowd size. As time goes on I am gaining more and more respect for the L1 Systems. The little things never cease to amaze me! I have been using the L1 systems now for over 9 years now. Buying the L1 Systems was the best equipment purchase choice I ever made! The quality of sound and portability are truly worth every penny!! I have recently (about 6 months ago) purchased the F1 Systems and although...

Using two L1 systems in same venue

Don Wilson ·
We have used the L1 Model II system in two worship venues at our church. In both settings, we feed a 16-channel mixer into the ToneMatch unit. We would like to combine services and use both of our systems together in the larger venue that seats 300. Will have three ToneMatch units and two mixers at our disposal. Any warnings or tips to making the two Bose L1 systems work beautifully together? Thanks!

Dual Systems

steve j ·
Hi, I have a L1 IS with a B1. I am considering buying a second system to use in a dual system configuration, for very large venues and/or audiences over 300. And, to also have as a back up system. My questions - 1. If I purchase a Model II with a B2, how will that work in a dual configuration with my Model I? I am guessing I will need to even out the bottom end by adding another B1 to my Model I, but will I get a good even sound by having a Model I on the left and a Model II on the right? 2.

Observations from "Foreigner Performs on Bose L1 Systems" video

GLB Productions ·
As a live sound engineer who is new to the Bose approach I've been watching videos of bands using the L1 systems live to get some idea of different set up possibilities. On the Bose YouTube channel there is a video of Foreigner doing a gig in 2014 with four L1 systems. There is a good overall shot of the stage at this point in the video: https://youtu.be/sibKEEBlfWs?t=1m28s I noticed a couple of things I'd like to ask about: 1. The band has two L1s behind them and two L1s in front, the...

This is the second time I try to power on the system, after few seconds I heard a pop sound front of the power stand may be through the Air vent, after that I was not able to power on at all.

I recently had the pleasure of providing sound and lights for a five piece band that filled the stage! They took up 22 inputs on my board. They were an REO Speenwagon Tribute group.

Two Players / 2 L1 Systems

Hello all... as a lifelong singer/songwriter since the late 60's, I've gone through a WHOLE BUNCH of PA gear in my career, but I have never played through anything that sounds so lifelike and clear as my Bose L1 Model II w/ T1... and it's very "workable" and well-mannered, as far as errant frequencies and sonic "insubordination" goes...

Hello to all. I am one member of a 5 piece band called Take2. We use a 16 channel Yamaha mixing board that feeds our L1 model II system.

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).

Running multiple F1 systems side by side

Does anyone have any experience with running multiple F1 systems side by side? We own 8 of these systems, and had an outdoor event that was supposed to only be around 1,100 people..

S1 Dead Battery and System Powering Down

Picked up the S1 a few days ago and when plugged in it works great except it tends to turn off after about 5 minutes of use. Once I toggle the power it stays on for as long as I want it to. The other problem is that the battery on the unit seems to be dead. I cannot get it to charge and the speaker only works when plugged in. I live in San Diego and temp everywhere hovers between 60 and 75 degrees so I do not think it is a weather issue. I really need the batter issue fixed asap as I bought...

Bose L1 Model II System with B2 Bass and Tone Match - Cylindrical Radiators have stopped functioning

Hi, everyone, Just turned on my Bose L1 Model II System with B2 Bass and the Cylindrical Radiators have stopped functioning. No pins appear to be bent.

The system has been taken apart less than a dozen time in its lifetime. Unit is only abo0ut three years old. You would expect better performance form such an expensive peaice of gear.

Hi Rylan, Thank you for joining us. Please tell us about where you perform. You mentioned school gyms. How many kids are in your typical audience. Do you have issues with excessive reverberation?

Hi ST, thanks for responding. Besides school gyms, there are venues such as public/school libraries, community & art centers, classrooms, out doors and even houses (bigger venues too, have their own sound system), Excessive reverb can be a problem in a gym (I'm actually a teacher too), but once you get 200 kids in there, the echoing gets sucked up by kids clothing and stuff..

Hi Rylan, Thanks for the added information. You'll need an L1® Model II with a B2 Bass Module and a ToneMatch mixer for these settings. The L1® Model II has a horizontal dispersion of about 180 degrees, and vertical is limited to the area in front of the 8 foot Cylindrical Radiator® (very little horizontal dispersion). That latter is great for taming reverberation in large rooms. You can replace everything with the L1 system I mentioned above. You'll want a guitar amp modeller to replace the...

Hi John, It's a joy isn't it. Over the years, many of the people with whom I play have picked up an L1® or L1® Compact.
