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...

Power/fault LED on L1 Model II base

Diane g ·
The unit has been working fine for some months now. But now I notice the power/fault LED is not lighting up at all. At times it begins to come on blue and then goes out. Other times it does not come on at all. However the system has power and works fine. Is there a light that needs replaced? Is there a shop I can take it to so it can be looked at? I live near Tampa Florida. thanks Diane

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.

Re: Dual Systems

NickA-at-Bose ·
Hi Steve, Question 1 and 2 -- You are correct that you won't truly get an even sound with two different L1's. But, it probably won't really matter except for the 3 people standing in the middle of the room and exactly equidistant from the two systems: Anyone closer to the left system will only really hear the left system, and anyone closer to the right system will really only hear the right system. So having a mismatch probably won't be noticed by the average audience member. Question 3 --...

Hi Steve J, Connect either L1 the usual way using the ToneMatch cable. Connect the second L1 using a ¼” TRS balanced cable. You’ll know it’s balanced to reject hum, buzz and noise at long distances (such as 50’) by the 2 visible stripes on the ¼” plug vs. 1 visible stripe (which is unbalanced). This method is illustrated on the L1 wiki with two Model IIs which applies to your setup as well: http://toonz.ca/bose/wiki/inde...odel_II_Power_Stands Thanks, MattS-at-Bose

Thanks for the details. I am looking at buying the Model II later today. Since I am using tracks and vocals I need both systems (Model I 1S and Model II) connected to the same Tone Match. Can you tell me how I make that connection? Also, if I place the towers 50 ft apart, I will need extra cords. Are there cord connectors? Thanks!

Thanks. I could not find a TRS cable longer than 10 ft. Will an XLR cable with 1/4 connectors work just as well?

Re: Dual Systems

Hi Steve J, Yes. Just make sure the XLR to 1/4" adapters are 1/4" TRS (vs. 1/4" TS unbalanced) to maintain a balanced connection. Thanks, MattS-at-Bose

B2s LIve, L1 Type IIs and Taylor ES2.

Moon Dog ·
I play some fairly large venues (Indoors) and I wanted to post a couple observations. 1. I rarely run the B2s at anything other than the lowest bass setting. A musician friend of mine that attends many of my shows and is very critical told me, at the lowest setting I am shaking the entire bar...so much for saying Bose has no Bass. So I recommend running those B2's at the lowest bass setting...they kick it out. 2. If you play a Taylor and use a Bose L1 Type II....I have a number of Taylor...

L1 Model II Power Stand - analog input blown

IketheProducer ·
This is one of the most embarrassing things that I've ever done...had a bar gig where we had to use a lift from the alley to get our gear up to the venue but the staff wasn't ready so we ended up short on time to set up. I'd been using my system as a bass amp and to mic the kick (T1) at smaller venues. The stage space was awfully cramped so our guitarist (who brought his PA) asked to run the monitor out from his powered mixer into my tower to save space since there was no room for wedges.

House Concert Setup

DLR ·
Hi - looking for advice on a potential purchase... we host concerts in our living room usually 4-5 times/year. It is usually 1-3 artists and mostly acoustic singer/songwriter. A typical setup might be two vocals, one with a guitar and the other with a keyboard. The room is ~20x30 with high celings (~20ft) and wood floor. We have had as many as 80+ crammed in for a Young Life event, but a more typical crowd would be in the 30-50 range. We have been ok going unplugged in the past - the sound...

Hi DLR, welcome to the forum. Thanks for joining our community. I'm sorry you've had to wait so long before getting a reply here. As you don't mention the room having any kind of balcony, I take it we're just talking about everyone at ground level in a very high room? I'm going to deal with your question as such. The reason I ask is because although the L1 systems disperse the sound roughly 180 horizontally (parallel to the ground) but the vertical dispersion (up and down) is pretty minimal...

Thanks, Tony! This is very helpful. Just a few points of clarification. The audience has always been seated, usually all in chairs, but sometimes people end up sitting on the floor with our bigger crowds. The front row is very close to the musicians - only a few feet away - and the back row is usually <18 ft. away. We have a Facebook page with a few videos posted (The Dudley Living Room) if you want to see what it looks like. You will see some artists with sound systems, but most have...

Hi DLR (Dudley Living Room?), Thanks for the information regarding the Facebook page. I've had a look and listen. I love the idea of living room concerts and have done several with my acoustic trio. To date all with a Compact (I didn't get my Model II until early 2016 when someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse on a used but never outside of the living room unit with a T1). The Compact was always enough, but we always used a small bass amp for the bass guitar. Nowadays I'd take the Model...

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.

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...

T8S Analog vs Digital Connection to L1 Model 1S and Model II

ST ·
Some people have expressed concern because the T8S ToneMatch mixer does not have ToneMatch (digital) connections to L1 Model 1S and L1 Model II. I've taken the time to test this carefully. To my ears, there is no audible difference between the digital and the analog connections. The background and some notes about how I tested follow below. The best way I know to detect differences in sound is to do an A/B switch back and forth instantly. Even a few seconds between listening events can lead...

Very interested in how this plays out.

I don't think the solution they came up with was the only one they could have but I believe you when you say it still sounds great I'll just want to hear more real world trials from people who know how they should sound already.

So....I have been using BOSE for years now in my show so I am willing to test this out.

Hi Rich, welcome to the forum and congrats on your new system. This isn't a completely ideal situation for a newbie (or anyone else for that matter). Unpacking a completely new system and putting it to immediate use in a live situation without a test drive to see if everything is working as it should be always bears a risk. Normally however the system will work straight out of the box. Are you using the TC helicon voice live 3 for guitar and vocals? If so I'd keep it as simple as possible...

Hi Rich, Yes the Bose can do that to you.

You can use your effects but leave out/bypass any EQ'ing for the guitar. On the guitar channel of the T4 select a preset for an acoustic guitar. Your pick-up appears to be a piezo type so you might want to try out the steel string with piezo Preset. What I generally do when trying...
