Two S1 Pros vs. Bose F1 + Sub System

TheFocusElf ·
I currently have the Bose F1 (single) and a single F1 Sub. Clearly a mono setup. The space is about 750sq feet - of which the F1 occupies about 1.5-2% of that space. I find it to be a bit of overkill for my space, and, it is setup in a mono format. In either case, the F1 is receiving a Line In from a 16 channel mixer, and the S1's if I bought them and replaced the F1 would too benefit from a separate mixer. Things I like: 1) Built in Bass (unlike the L1 Compact that I returned before buying...

Hi Sushil, I thought very carefully about the size of your big celebration hall and that you want to use it for dance with full music. I can't think of anything smaller than another L1® Compact for this purpose. Why not? If you want the same sound quality, then you want another L1® Compact. If you think the L1® Compact is not loud enough for your music, the only alternatives to the L1® Compact would be a larger L1® like the L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II. Both of these can provide much more...

Re: System for music rehearsal room

Hello, To connect a mixer to the L1 Compact, the best option will be to use the L1 Compact's 1/4" input on Channel 2. Here is a link to the Compact's owners guide This article here has a general overview of the best practices: Connecting a mixer to an L1 system Regarding bass: In general, I'd recommend using a dedicated bass amp rather than feeding the bass guitar through the L1 Compact. And in a room that size, you probably won't have to be concerned with mic'ing the bass drum either. If...

L1® Compact questions

DocSam ·
Hi guys! I'm new to the list but glad to be here. I am in the market for a Bose L1 Compact for personal use at homer perhaps small venues. I hope to get over to Guitar Center soon for a real trial to plug my Martin GPCPA4 in and strum away. I have three questions for the group: 1) Tell me about the bass speaker in the Compact's main cabinet. Since it does not allow for EQ control, does the bass speaker it really beef up the sound (in a bass-y way)? 2) Have you all seen the eBay seller named...

Congrats on your purchase! A side note, as I've mentioned several times in the forums, is that I use two L1/M2's as a PA in front of the band, instead of the recommended placement behind the band. We rarely have enough room to use them as designed. I simply use them L/R as a FOH from a digital mixer and use a few powered monitors (one being an L1 Compact), for the band. 4 Piece Classic Rock outfit. This has worked fine for us in a variety of situations for the past 8 years. I also have 2...

Hi DocSam, The L1® Compact is an integrated unit (the speaker array and the woofer in the power stand), When you use the ToneMatch Preset for acoustic guitar, the EQ is optimized to bring out the best in your guitar. It's overly bass-y. Here's a picture of the L1 Compact Inputs. Close up of the ToneMatch switch. And here's an article that explains what the ToneMatch® Presets do.

Hi Sushil, Here's another reason to consider a second L1® Compact. If you add another conventional loudspeaker, it will likely have a horizontal dispersion of 90-100 degrees. Your L1® Compact has a horizontal dispersion of 180 degrees. Two Compacts can do a very good job covering a room like you described. But if you use a conventional loudspeaker for the second speaker, you may have gaps in the coverage. ST

Don't even think about it, the L1m2 is designed to work with a bass unit and is incomplete without it. You could save a bit by getting a B1 but my advice would be to get the B2 if you possibly can. You could also go for your original selection, the L1S or even the Compact but you will be losing out on the flexibility of the system and it won't sound as good either (IMO). The L1m2 with B2 will cover all your requirements and even more, I work some fairly large venues and the only time I use...

Re: Using a monitor with Bose L1 Model 1

Hi Gilbert, Let's start with defining a monitor system . You will need active monitors or a power amplifier and passive monitors. Active monitors are more convenient. The Bose S1 Pro (likely two of them) could work for you depending on how loud your stage is. ' You could also use one or two L1® Compacts (they are louder). Are you using a mixer? If so, you may be able to take a line out (often marked MON or AUX) from the mixer to a monitor system. If you are connecting your sound sources...

input difference?

Scott 3 ·
Hey guys, I have a Bose L1 Compact connected to my Behringer mixer via the XLR cable. I am using the microphone input (left side) although the manual suggests using the right side input. Is there any upside/downside to setting it up this way? It appears to be working just fine. I use this mostly to listen to music played from my Itunes to the Mixer to the speaker, and also for karaoke. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Scott, ST's covered just about everything regarding the connectivity of the Compact and how to use it best. Regarding what ST's suggested I won't repeat his tips. They're basically what I've said myself. @ST I can't seem to get the link in the picture to work (" Click picture for more details ."). I will however address this: Depending on which mixer you have you may already have a cable with the connections you may need for this. Some of the Behringer mixers have both XLR and 1/4"...

Hi DJ8X, jdbassentertainment's comments are constructive here. If you have a switch on your mixer (-10 dB), disengage it. If you have a switch that lets you choose between MIC/LINE output, choose LINE.

Re: Purchasing First Bose system

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the L1 Model 2 is not meant to be operated without either a bass module (either B1 or B2) . The old L1 Classic could be used this way (& maybe the L1 Mod 1 also), but the L1/M2 sounds pretty awful without the bass module.

Hi Steve, >can you elaborate on what you were unsatisfied with? Since the F1 Sub is tuned for the F1 Model 812, I found the crossover point to be too low when used with and L1. The B2 slope is at a hugher frequency than the F1 so it's a better match for the L1.

Hi Technogeek, I think this is a reasonable use for the L1 Compact. We rate it for up to 100 people listening and it will reproduce as large a mix as you want to play through it. Prerecorded music for example, can have many channels, 48 channels and far beyond and play through an L1 just fine. Thanks, MattS-at-Bose

I currently have a pair of L1 Series Model II stands with B2 subs. Occasionally when I play smaller venues I will use a single L1 M2 and use both of the B2 subs for more low end resonance. Would there be an issue with using the F1 Subwoofer instead of a pair of the B2s? I realize, that surface area would be decreased by half, by going with 1 pair of 10" subs versus having 4 10" subs running. The output power of the L1 stand is 250 watts to a single B2, as it is the same with the packlite amp...

Hi PMWizard, The F1 system is designed for use with ensembles with drums and guitars. Differences between F1 and L1 are: - More Power - The array is flexible and not fixed - You can daisy chain F1 units together. To cover larger halls, ideally, you would have a left and right system stack. As far as room coverage, what are you planning to do?

Re: L1 and Digital mixing desk

I agree with ST, try and use it as intended. Are you really using 32 channels? If so, can you share what they are? I get that you want to have one fader to control everything, but it offers you less flexibility. Get a balance of what's in each L1 first, then you can use the Mix outputs to control each L1 and make your work pretty easy with mainly 4 faders to deal with. Hope that's helpful, Scott

How does this unit compare with the L1? I recently (about 6 months ago) purchased dual L1 II's for Mobile DJ'ing (primarily pre-recorded music). Would I see a noticeable improvement in SPL level and sound quality if I traded in the towers for two F1 units? I play lots of bass heavy content (rap, pop, etc). I know dual 10" drivers have slightly more surface area than a single 12" driver, but the F1 also has double the amount of power than the L1 II. I planned on eventually adding two more...

The performers will be between and likely, slightly behind the F1s. Yes, you will need stage monitors (return speakers). Yes, this is different from the L1s that were designed to be placed behind the performers.
