Running multiple F1 systems side by side

AJ Audio ·
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.. When we realized that it would be closer to 4k people, we panicked and used EVERYTHING WE HAD lol. The concert went smooth and sounded great, but I knew that we'd be introducing a nice amount of cone filtering due to the last minuet judgement call. There was some slight phasing issues, but not so much that we had...

Replacing 802C II Systems Controller

Paul 4 ·
I am the "tech guru" at our local church and I have inherited a series of equipment that does not appear to be available or easily supported any longer. We have an 802C II Systems Controller that has a loose connector on the back and needs service. We are looking to see where we can get this done, but the question has come up as to whether or not we should replace it with a unit that is still available (this does not seem to be available anymore from all the sources we scouted online). What...

F1 Clear, Powerful, but not too loud!

We just did a show where we provided sound and lighting for a fun party band... the F1 system had an interesting way of sounding full and powerful without sounding too loud. The band was great and the F1 System delivered! :)

Connecting T1 to the venues own system

Hello, I would greatly appreciate some advice. I have a Bose L1m2 with a b1 and T1, I've had it 10 years and I love it. Some of the bars I play in require me to plug into their house system at the wall port on the stage, when asked to plug into these I don't get to see what the system the bar is using, very often the staff operating it switch the house system from their music to the band channel, the problem I am having is in some of the bars I can't get an output from the t1 but I can in...

T4S ToneMatch Mixer update - not working

korynamusic ·
I just got my T4S today and tried to install the T4S update on a Mac Sierra. In the begging my MAC would not want to open the app saying it was not an app from the app store. To fix this I had to go to my privacy settings and I finally managed to open the L1 UPDATE for MAC OSX (v1.3). I downloaded the T4 S Update ( V1.1.4) , placed them in the same folder! My Bose T4S Mixer is version V1.0.1. When I click to Update the T4S mixer I get a pop up saying " The selected file is not compatible.

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).

Bose portable S1 system

Joined this forum having literally just found about the new Bose S1 and want to get other performers' opinions. I'm a singer who uses backing tracks, and want to replace my heavy portable system. I currently use Behringer EPS500MP3, compakt 8 Channel PA System which I bought 3 years ago. It's OK but have never quite felt 100% happy with it.

Hey There, I purchased the S1 Bose Pro System and am loving it. I use a head microphone and am getting really bad feedback from the speaker in certain areas of the room.

Re: Running multiple F1 systems side by side

wavesound ·
I believe by "cone filtering" you are referring to comb filtering, correct? You'll experience this with any loudspeaker at distance in a stereo configuration, but close together like this you will experience more of it. The F1 system was not designed to "cluster" like this and for other larger events you may want to consider renting or setting capital aside for a larger system to handle larger audiences.

Re: Running multiple F1 systems side by side

AJ Audio ·
Yes.. "Comb" filtering lol.. Sorry, I typed this out over my phone, and autocorrect clearly knew better than I lol. Thanks for the info.. That was my main question, if the systems were able to be used in a clustered setup. I totally agree that a larger rig is needed, however the company is owned by my Dad, and he SWEARS by these things. The sound great, and I was shocked when I first heard them, but he went on a tangent and bought a garage full of them lol. I've seen photos of other guys...

You need to stagger the grills height wise so that where one ends another beings (per side)... I suspect in practice this might be very hard to do using four F1 tops per side...

Re: Running multiple F1 systems side by side

djmaverick ·
I have been trying to find the best way to run multiple systems as well. How did you daisy chain so many? Example left 812 to the other left 812s and left sub to other left subs? @jdbassentertainment.com Can you show an example of the stagger grills?
Reply

Re: Running multiple F1 systems side by side

AJ Audio ·
yes.. thats how I did it. I ran Left, Right, and Sub on Aux. all subs were daisy chained together. left speakers jump one to the next, same as right. again.. runing this close will cause comb filtering, and slight phasing.. .I'm going to see if I can rig a system to stack 2 of the tops on top of one another. That may be a better idea to get it done.

Re: Connecting to House Systems

Dave Hazel ·
Good idea ST. Now you've got my designer head on! Look out on Ebay for the new "DUAI box" (Dave's Ultimate Audio Interface). In the mean time while everyone is waiting for that... This is probably ultimately the best, easiest, most convenient and simplest solution for possibly all scenarios. The biggest drawback will be the cost! A wireless IEM system. Drive the transmitter with the AUX out of the stage system and drive the input of the house system with the receiver. It solves any issue...

Considering the premium that Bose charges for this product, I would look for a proper line array or tops that can be arrayed to increase coverage and output.

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. It's always a joy when we play together because we all bring our own L1® to the gig. And it makes an audible difference to us, and to the audience too. We know, because they tell us. Good to hear from you. ST

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.. And that's generally the size of audience I'll be playing to in a gym, 100-500 kids depending on the size of the...

Re: Need Help Choosing the System That's Right for Me

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...

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.
