Not playing back Mp3/aux(background music) properly

nathan lugo ·
Hello there, i just received the bose L1 M2 with B2 bass sub and t4s mixer and i gotta say it sounds great but i've run into an issue. It sounded great when i plugged my acoustic guitar in but when i tried to play spotify from my phone ( 1/8in aux cable to 1/4in adapter into 5/6 aux on t4s) it only plays one of the speakers/pans(right or left) and then when i add a splitter(two 1/4 in to one) and plug that into both 5/6 it does the other speaker in the mix. Am i doing something wrong? or...

B2 Bass Module cutting out intrmitantly

Kelticdave ·
I've been using my Bose L1 Model 2 system with B2 Bass Module for 4 years now.. I love the system but have been experiencing problems with the bass module pretty much since I bought the system.. Basically sometimes when I set up my PA I would have nothing coming from the Bass at all.. I always have at least 2 of every lead/ cable handy in case of emergencies.. but changing cables didn't help.. then without warning it would start working again.. a bit of a pain but at least it always started...

Using 2 Bose L1s but just one B2 as FOH Left/Right

MicklePickle ·
I'm a sound guy and have been using a Bose L1/B2 system for several years for smaller venues. But a single Bose tower is mono and I miss the width of a stereo system, especially for keyboards and special effects like reverb and delay. I'd like to use two Bose L1 towers but just one B2. This will help reduce the phase issues (hot and dead spots) associated with two subs running in a small room. Is this feasible? Would I need to make significant adjustments? Thanks.

Solo artist - Using Backing Tracks and Live Guitar. Trying to decide on Bose L1S or M2 with B1 or B2

My Setup: Bose L1 Compact, Stratocaster into Boss GT100, Professional Grade Backing Tracks on iPad With OneTrack. For the acoustic part of my show I’m using a Breedlove C350cme direct into the T1. Vocal Mic= SM58 I perform everything from Sinatra to 311 to SRV. I have been using this setup for 7 years and have been very happy with my sound except on outdoor gigs or larger venues.

2 B1s in place of B2

Fretgames ·
Hello fellow Bose enthusiast. I have a L1 M2 and I was thinking of retiring my B2 with much regret, as I love the sound. I can't deal with the weight and size with my shoulders. I'm a solo guitarist and vocalist. I play acoustic and electric. I use a Trio to make my backing tracks. The bass, drums and various keyboards, sound awesome through my current configuration. I don't D J though I have used it a number of times in theaters and outdoors events. I'm worried that the system will loose...

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?

B2 speaker switching problems

My Tonematch and my L1 powerbase unit have indicated that the software update worked....but I really don't have any way of verifying the upgrade.

Opportunity to Purchase Model II w/ B2 for Solo/Duet Acoustic

Bennett ·
Hello all, New to the forums and looking to make my first Bose Portable PA purchase. I am already appreciative of the knowledge contained in these forums. I have the opportunity to purchase a used Bose Model II with a B2 Bass Module for a reasonable price. My primary gigs will be solo acoustic or duo acoustic, possible with a keyboard. Current audience is small, sub-200. I understand that a single B1 module would likely meet my needs very well. This would probably be my preferred setup.

Hey, I know the faq says that a sub is not recommended with the S1 but I need more low. I've seen other posts with using a f1 sub but that thing is to large and heavy.

Using an external monitor with Bose L1 Model II

Ioni Creek ·
I am in a Bluegrass band using a Bose L1 Model II with B2 Base. Our Dobro player cannot hear his notes if he connects his Dobro into the system. I need to capture the audio from the Mixer before it gets mixed up with the crowd noise so I need everything going through the Tonematch Mixer. Do you know of anyone who has had this issue? Do you think I could use a stage monitor for him so he could hear? If so, do you have a product recommendation? Thanks,

B2 - should I install castors (wheels)?

Geoff ·
Hi guys Just a thought, would it be ethical to install castors on the backside of my B2? Has anybody actually done this? I'm not entirely sure I want to be drilling and screwing into a £500 quid cab but I was wondering if it has ever been done before. There is a company here in the UK which builds flight cases for all the Bose gear but the B2 case retails at the same price as the cab itself and then there is the extra size to consider, a B2 in a flight case is a heck of a lump!

Hi Fabio, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you joined us. I looked up your devices (links below). The T1® does not support the digital connections provided by your devices. You can use the analog outs with cables like this. You could connect one device to T1® Channels 4/5 and the other to T1® Channels 2 and 3. Does that help?

Re: How many DB (2) B2's packed together vs spread about 8' apart?

jaswrx ·
You technically get 3db for every sub you couple. But it also sounds a lot different. Putting the subs on the side generally looks better and also sounds different as the room or venue will be energized differently since sound waves leaving different areas. There are positives and negatives to each and there have actually been test showing the sound waves and how they are impacted from clustering vs spread out.

Re: How many DB (2) B2's packed together vs spread about 8' apart?

HI jdbassentertainment.com Under ideal circumstances with two S1 Subwoofers you might get +3dB SPL more than with a single subwoofer. Placing the two subwoofers together you could get up to +3dB SPL more through mutual coupling 1 . If you separate the subwoofers, you don't get the second +3dB SPL. That's under ideal circumstances with low frequencies. Repeating my reply from your other thread. How many DB (4) F1 subs packed together?? Here is another article that delves deeper into what...

Re: F1's with B2 Subs?

I wouldn't the B2s are voiced differently and will not keep up with the 812. If you're running bass heavy music, even the F1s will run out of steam running with the 812s.

Re: F1's with B2 Subs?

Hi FSBOI, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Thanks for the interesting question. The B2 bass modules are part of the L1 integrated system. They were engineered to work with an L1 Model II or L1 Model 1S. They are not self-contained powered subwoofers like the F1 Subwoofer. Your B2 bass modules are passive (no built-in amplifier). The L1 Model II Power Stand provides A crossover so the B2 receives frequencies from 40-200 Hz EQualization to fine-tune the sound to optimize the features...

Thank you for these thoughtful replies. Exactly what I needed to know. Actually, it sounds like we would be just fine staying with our L1 M2's and 2 B2's for an outdoor venue like a winery. We are playing Jazz and Pop tunes for listening, not so much for dancing, so it is not important necessarily to push it loud up front. I am just looking at the overall handling and sound distribution. Bose Gear is amazing and versatile. We get comments all the time as to how well you can hear everything...

Re: Using an external monitor with Bose L1 Model II

Hi, Ioni Creek. Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. Thank you for the interesting question. As you probably know, performing in front of the L1 reduces the need for extra monitors. Sometimes it's not possible to stand in a position where you can hear yourself. Sometimes there are so many voices and instruments coming through the L1 that it's difficult to pick out just one for monitoring. Bose introduced the Bose S1 Pro last year. It is a multi-function device and...

Re: Using 2 L1's

Hi Eddie, Thanks for the added information. Using a B2 instead of your B1 will give you more support in the low end (frequencies below 200 Hz). A B2 can sound as loud as four B1s . This will be most noticeable in the rhythm section (bass and drums) in your backing tracks. That might be all you need for your dancing/partying crowd. If you can rent a B2, try it at a large gig and see how it works for you. Two L1 systems will give you more sound through the whole sound spectrum. But I'd try a...

Re: Using 2 L1's

Hi Eddie, I'm sorry - I misunderstood your question. Thanks for helping me to understand. The L1 Model II is an integrated system and requires at least one bass module (B1 or B2) to work correctly. That's why the L1 Model II system are always sold with a B1 or B2. If you want to reduce the weight, you can get second L1 Model II with a B1 instead of a B2. How wide is the stage in the 300-person venue? If you are running two L1 Model II systems, you like to have at least 20 feet between them. ST

Hi Eddie, If it's a big room, you might be happier with two B2s (despite the difference in weight). When you get your second system, see if you can make arrangements with the dealer to try a B1 with the option to get a B2 if you find it doesn't meet your needs. ST

Hi Nathan, Sounds like you've discovered what happens when connecting a stereo feed into a balanced input. Trouble is, some times it seems like its working, then on the other hand you can get some unexpected results, such as one channel missing, very low volume etc. and yes, you will get different results depending on if the signal source is stereo or a duplicate mono signal on an otherwise stereo feed. The adaptor cable that ST has recommended will put it right as it will convert the...

Interesting... seems I have a similar issue with my L1 1S B2. a fault that has existed since I bought it a couple or 3 years ago. After a cold-start the output level of the whole stack can fade out for a few seconds and back in. Typically it does it twice and then works fine for many hours. I had mistakenly "assumed" the issue was a media data stream fall-out residing with the PC that was used as a media player. But now I know different from using the USB-A Player on the T4s.

Davey, I had the very same issue with my L1 -II - B2 system. It took a bit of back-and-forth with Bose Service Department, but the final diagnosis was a problem with the power stand. I replaced the power stand and the problem went away. I would suggest that you contact Bose Service. If I remember correctly, Bose has an exchange program where you send the defective power stand back to Bose and they replace it with a new (or refurbished) unit for a charge (when out of warranty). I hope this helps.
