Re: T1® question: Electric Bass works but not Microphones

Hi ST, glad you popped by. I'm sure your photos have done the rest to completely clarify the situation for our scandanavian friend. I hope that I'm still fit enough at 72 to swing an axe and sing. After a bit of pondering I came to the conclusion that Tony probably went into one of the inputs of channels 4/5 with his bass guitar (which would of course work and is designed for just this type of connection), and then the microphone via a 1/4" jack into one of the channel outputs which would...

Hi Tony (Olofsson), first of all let me welcome you to the forum. I hope that you get the help you need here, and maybe with time be able to offer help to others. Here we learn a lot from each other. Before I go any further, I have to admit that my brain needed a "bump start" after reading your post "I connected my el-bass" There are so many instrument manufacturers out there today that I actually googled el-bass before I realized that it must mean electric bass. Unfortunately your...

Thank you. I have been playing bass since I was 14 years. Started with Kontrabass before el-basses came out. Then I bought a Hagström plastic bass. Not good but nice. 1962 I bought a Fender Jazz Bass and are still using it. I am now 72 and still playing together with a accordion player. Just now I have started cooperation with a lady playing melodeon and violin. She bought BOSE L1 but couldn´t handle it therefore I tried to use it because I have friends using the same.

Hi Tony, Thanks for telling me a bit about yourself.

He is however, rewarded by the sound to match the size of the instrument. Hagström Bass.

Hi Tony Olofsson, Thanks for telling us more about you. It's nice to get to know you. It's great that you found a solution to your problem. I was reading along with interest.

Interesting bass! Yes I like the bass. I bought it 1962 just because a band named Sven-Ingvars had that bass and it sounded so good.

A very sensible decision, Tony. By the way, if it's no trouble, and of course only if you want to, I would really like to see a picture or pictures of you playing (and of course singing) your christmas songs with maybe a little story to go with it. But only if you want to. I'm sure you can get somebody to take photos. You could start a new thread in the "At the gig and Rehearsal" forum. I know that ST would also be thrilled to see it. BUT ... only if you want to. I'll show you how to do that...

Re: Using the T1 as an effects pedal for electric into my amp

Hi Jenn, Nice to get to know you. It sounds like you won't be needing much in the way of distortion. I've not ever bonded with at Tele but I'm a huge fan of semi-acoustics like the Country Gentleman. Lawrence Juber; I looked him up and enjoyed some of his music. I found some pictures of the Sewell. I don't see an effects loop. If it had one, I might try putting the T1® in the loop. Have fun with the T1® in this novel approach. Please let me know how that works out for you. ST

Using the T1 as an effects pedal for electric into my amp

Jenn ·
Hi all, I'm mostly a solo acoustic guitarist, using a TI/L1 Mod 2 for live gigs. I use the T1 in situations where a small amp will do (or to FOH in a PA situation) as a DI and reverb and tuner. Very simple. I'm now dabbling in electric guitar land. I don't expect to play out much on electric. Rather than invest in a basic pedal board and gear, can I plug my electric into the T1, then on to my amp (Sewell, very cool) and use the T1s 'verb, chorus, etc? I don't want to do amp modeling or...

My electrics are an inexpensive Mexican Tele (surprisingly good, I think), and an excellent Gretsch Country Gent. For electric, I'm working on country/blues lead. Think Ry Cooder, et al. In my acoustic gigging world, I play small shop luthier built instruments (mostly Baranik), solo...originals Beatle tunes, etc. I study with Laurence Juber. My main musical activity is as a conductor, on a college faculty and free lance. I have an interesting life! :-)

Hi Jenn, Yes, you can run your T1® between the guitar and your guitar amp input. There are some interesting possibilities for switching the effects on/off with the FX/Mute buttons. I'll have to get back to you about that later today. I want to try some things here. In the meantime, what kind of Sewell amp do you have? ST

Re: Three Position Bose B2 Switch - What are The Electrical/Frequency Characteristics Of Each Position

ST ·
Hi Cap, Bose does not publish details about the proprietary EQ profiles used in the Power Stands or ToneMatch® Presets. Both the L1® Model 1S and L1® Model II have proprietary system EQ settings. The system EQ applied depends on whether or not a B1 or B2 is connected to the Power Stand. If there is a B2 the position of the B2 switch determines which system EQ is applied. All the processing is done in the Power Stand. The equivalent of the Classic/Model I Presets 57 and 58 are ToneMatch®...

When connected to an L1 Model 2 and/or L1 Model 1S powerstand. 250 watts of bass power is available. What does the three position switch do exactly. Is it a choke? Is it an EQ? Does it compare to earlier Model Classic & L1 Model 1 mechanical presets (e.g. 57 & 58)?

Hi Cap, I assume you are asking about the 3 position switch on the back of the B2 sub. It doesn't do anything within the speaker itself. Instead, it tells a Model 2 Powerstand what bass level to put out: + Causes the Model 2 Powerstand to increase the subwoofer output by 3dB Normal does not change the Model 2 Powerstand subwoofer output - Causes the Model 2 Powerstand to reduce the subwoofer output by 3dB The EQ between the settings stays the same.

Re: Three Position Bose B2 Switch - What are The Electrical/Frequency Characteristics Of Each Position

RobbieD ·
Exactly. The switch actually switches a couple of small resistors inside the speaker connected to pins 2+ & 2- on the Speakcon (the drivers are connected to pins 1+ & 1-, so no signal goes through these resistors). The Powerstand senses what resistance value is across pins 2+ & 2- and knows which position the switch is in, and literally turns the bass volume up or down accordingly. The Powerstand senses the (different) B1 resistor in the same way to set the appropriate EQ.

Re: Electrical sparks out of the base/ amplifier unit

perhaps a short circuit. if you purchased a US system with 110 volts there will appear problems with voltage & plugs. as i know, Uganda will use 240 voltage with special plugs like Great Britain https://www.welt-steckdosen.de/uganda/

Hi True our voltage is 240. I did use a step down voltage adapter for this. I actually purchased 2 Bose l1 model 2 systems. The first one works well without an error on the same voltage adapter

Power conversion from USA to Australia

Aussie Jim ·
Hi, I recently moved back from the USA to Australia and have shipped my L1 series 2 back with me. I am asking if anyone has used a step up/down converter and if it works without any problems? If so what kind of converter do I need. Bose Australia has said they can convert the unit to Australian standards for $800. Was trying to see if there was a more economical solution. Thank you Jim

Re: Power conversion from USA to Australia

Nick from New Zealand ·
SoundWave Services in Auckland has done conversions, but of course you'd need to ship the power stands here. Authorised Bose service agent for NZ and unlikely to be any cheaper overall but maybe worth a shot? It's not a good idea to use those external step-down transformers. It seemed to cause a lot of issues with the original L1. Definitely change the internal bits.
