L1 classic half work

Fin ·
Hi to you all, I am Fabrizio from Italy. I have a couple of used (not by me) L1's classic with 4x B1. One is perfect, the other nope. I run them always with a line input in the input 3 (at volume 3) and already tried the input 4. The broken system sound awful, No eq and NO x-over. I have full range in the sub output, Removed the radiator and checked the 3 amps individually. All works correctly if driven from their inputs. If I use one of the classic line inputs (3 and 4) in every amps out I...

Tip of 1/4 inch cable stuck on input

angelreagan ·
Hello! Long story short, when unplugging une cable from the 1/4 inch input in the S1, the tip of the cable got stuck and now is unusable. It does not make any noise and I can still use the XLR with no issues, I cannot only (obviously) insert another cable as the tip is stuck in there. Any advice on how to get it out without having to disassemble it or sending it to Bose for repair? Thanks!

T4S stereo connection to Aux Inputs

Greetings. I just got a t4s and tried plugging into aux in 5, with a mini plug to a trs stereo cable, connecting my laptop, (also tried the iPad) to play backing tracks, but only half the channels on the tracks played. I don’t have an L1 system - got the power brick and use other speakers. (Got the S1 Pro as monitor). I have 2 trs cable coming out of the right and left output channels to each speaker. From the diagram in the manual, it looked like the right cord to connect the laptop/mp3...

Input volume difference between combo jacks (1,2,3) and line inputs (4/5) on T1 Tonematch Engine?

kevinaugustine ·
Hi guys Just a brief question. Should there be a small drop off in sound (5-10%) between the combo jack inputs (1-3) and line inputs 4/5 on the Tone match mixer. I was doing up settings on my Nylon stringed guitar and noticed a difference when I took it from input (2 in this case) and put it into 4/5 The trims, channel volume and master volume were the same on both and both channels were setup identically (same preset, eq, delay, compression reverb etc) Thanks as always!

Gain is often overlooked on the T1, or any mixer, by less experienced users. It's not always as important for analog mixers as it is for digital. Digital distortion is much more unpleasant. If you think gain is too low for the band mix, just bring up master and channel faders to compensate. I would also like to add, for those who have powerhouse vocalists. Actually have them YELL or SCREAM into their mic while setting gains. Because once the band starts up, the singers will push harder.

Hi John, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you joined us. One thing I've found with some guest singers is a tendency to back off the microphone. Whether that's inexperience, someone who is microphone shy, or stage theatrics, trying to overcome bad microphone technique by turning up the volume almost always leads to feedback. I coach guest singers to stay on the mic. If they back off I use sign language or just tell them to eat the mic. If they can't be heard, I've learned to...

Enough can't be said about singing ON the mic. I coach performers about this as well, over and over. Quite often, they will ignore my repeated requests. Like ST, I just have to let it play out with them barely being heard. One reason is probably their conditioning to singing with traditional PA, "let the sound man turn me up out front" syndrome. The other, and I was guilty of this as well, is fear of hearing yourself like you really sound. It can be a shocker, and I struggled, wanted to back...

Great video! I have a problem with a condenser mike I purchased. It's an Apex 415 which uses phantom power. I can't seem to get any volume out of it without feedback. I've been on the phone with Bose for several hours with no help. The L1 model II is about 30 feet away from the microphone. Bose told me the closest mike to use was the Shure SM58 (even though it is not a condenser mike). Any ideas?

Hi Kevin, Your T1 is operating as designed. The 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) inputs on channels 1, 2, 3 have a higher input sensitivity than the 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) inputs on channel 4/5. You can read more details here: T1 Inputs Does that help? ST

Re: L1 classic half work

ST ·
Hi Fabrizio, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. It sounds like the broken L1 CLassic is stuck in diagnostic mode. This is usually triggered by applying a resistor across the B1 Bass Module Output pins 2+/2- with a value of less than 5 K ohms. This could happen if you connect more than two B1s to one power stand. Try connecting a single B1 to the L1 Classic that is working. Then try the same cable and B1 with the L1 Classic that is not working. Do you get the same result (not working)? ST

Just make the test. Nothin' changed. I first try with the good one, playing audio from PC without sub, then while playing I plugged one B1, audio stop then restart in a second with correct DSP settings and EQ. Well, tried the bad one. Start playing w/out sub than I plugged the same sub and cable I used before, no audio stop, it's still in diagnostic mode, awful sound and full range from all 3 amps. Aside question, where is the resistor in the cable? I checked my Bose original cables but no...

Hi Fabrizio, The only other suggestion is to disconnect everything including the AC power from the broken PS1. Leave it sit like that for at least 15 minutes to let the unit reset. then reconnect things and try again. There is no resistor in the cable. It is in the B1 bass module. ST

Thanks for the suggestion. But it was unplugged for hours before the test so I think that the problem could be in the power supply of DSP. Do you think that reload the firmware could be an option?

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...

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, 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...

Re: correct inputs or no?

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. I am an advocate of all their products and own many, wave, acoustic wave, headphones, ear buds etc.,...

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...

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...

Thanks again Tony, and yes, all of your input has helped. I have never had the compact in the red except for when we first broke it out just to see how hot it would actually go. Currently I am trying to reproduce the volume cut with the elimination of other possibilities, i.e. Bypassing the mixer, using a different keyboard. I had read in a post somewhere here that the 1/4" input of channel 2 was a 'balanced Mono' input. Is this still accepting of a TRS "Stereo" input as that is the only...

Re: correct inputs or no?

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...
