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!

Mounting the TS8 on a tripod/ cable tidiness 😀

Jerome Hillier ·
Hi out there in Boseland !😀 thinking of getting a tripod to mount the TS8 on may seem a silly question but does anyone out there do this/ and If so what do you do to keep your cables tidy so it still looks professional when you have 8 plus connections dangling down? similarly is there anything practical one can place over the tripod/mixer ( material wise ) to keep things looking professional? thanks in advance Jerome

Connecting 2 S1 Pro

Daniel ·
Hi! I have two S1 Pro speakers and I want to connect them while I sing and play my guitar through it! In the manual it says that I need a 1/4 inch TRS cable for that (not an ordinary guitar TS cable). I have problems finding a fairly long TRS cable at all and they seem to be very expensive! Any suggestion where to find a 2-3 meter long TRS cable at a fair price! Thanks/Daniel

Hi Daniel, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I've had good experience with this vendor Audiopile.net Does that help? ST EDIT - I'm sorry, it looks like you're in Sweden. Audiopile is in the USA. I don't think they ship overseas.

Hi again Daniel, While a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable is preferred, if the distance is less than 6 meters, you'll probably be okay with a Tip-Sleeve instrument cable. If you have a cable like that handy, give it a try. If you don't hear any line noise, you're fine. ST

If using simple TR cables doesn’t work, one option to perhaps consider is using TRS to XLR cables. You could get 2, short TRS to XLR cables (one with female end one with male end). Then connect the two short cables using a longer, standard XLR mic cable (which you may already have) if you needed the extra length. This way you could use varying lengths of standard XLR-XLR cables as needed. In the US, 5 foot TRS-XLR cables are $25 each, so not all that cheap a solution, but just throwing it...

I have been using Monoprice in Norco California for decades. Their cables are heavy duty and not pricey at all. They do mail order or pickup from their warehouse.

I see a TRS to XLR (male) 25' long cable on Amazon for about $15. That's the kind of thing that I use when interconnecting my 2 Bose S1s directly. Maybe something like that is available where you live.

That might prove to be troublesome with acoustic finger style. I would try a balanced cable, I'de even try to buffer it it.

I would also try to lower the impedance.

Re: Hiss

ST ·
Hi Ted, Please try a different cable. A speaker cable is not shielded so it is more likely to pick up noise. It's also the wrong impedance. You need 1/4 inch instrument cable. If the digital accordion DI has a balanced output, then a balanced cable (1/4 inchTip-Ring-Sleeve) should give you a better signal to noise ratio. Do you get different results with a different cable? Do you have another instrument you can try? ST

Re: Hiss

Was recorded on an iPhone about 1 foot away from speaker. There is an slightly less audible hiss from the S1 with nothing plugged in but it doesn't vary with the trim control. The accordion has two mono outs - both 'left' and 'right' outputs are mono when only one cable is plugged in; it makes no difference which out I use. In answer to queries above by ccc and ST - this is 1/4" instrument cable, sorry for the mislabeling. I tried a Yorkville cable and a Fender cable both good quality...

Re: Hiss

There is no difference with tone balance settings. An XLR mic input has a slight buzz/hiss at high trim level, but nothing like the instrument input. I am told by the tech at our local music store that connecting a TRS 1/4 " from an unbalanced out is a waste of time since the out will not 'see' the extra cable wire.

Re: Hiss

Hi Ted, Are you using a Roland FR8-X? If so, the outputs are unbalanced and there is no benefit to using balanced cables. If you've got a different kind of instrument, then please try a balanced cable. If it doesn't sound different, then go back to the unbalanced cable. A recording from one foot away helps us to understand what you're hearing, but doesn't tell us how loud it is or if it is unusually loud for the S1 Pro system. I hear hiss at this distance too, but as soon as I have music...

Hi I use a FR4X, probably the same output as the 8X so thanks for this. I am not sure of the decibel of the hiss sound. I’ll keep trying different suggestions.

Hi Ted, just out of pure interest and because I can't see it mentioned anywhere here I have a couple of questions. Have you tried the digital accordion out with any other PA systems? If so, was there a hissing present there also? I'm asking this because I've experienced "noisy" preamps in instruments before. Some pretty loud (hiss-wise), some not so loud. If a preamp isn't of good quality you more often than not have hiss. Also, as you have written: This would lead me to trying out the...

The roland accordion? So I would like to ask a simple question, Does your Bose make this noise with any other instrument? If you have tried XLR or 1/4 balanced cable? How long is the cable length you are using, try using a short cable, although a balance cable should prevent end loop hiss, but impedance also can cause hiss. Insure the cable you are using is also good. If your Bose makes noise with every instrument then I'de being looking at the Bose Culprit if it is only with the accordion...

Re: Hiss

Also have you tried another accordion? Another model? Does your accordion have one out or two out puts? If it does have a left and right separate out put, have you tried using just one channel for the testing of the hiss? Try left then try right, Still getting hissing? equally?

By the way, this is where I checked out the specs for reference https://www.bose.com/en_us/pro...ch-audio-engine.html It's also occurred to me that there's possibly is no such thing as an "unbalanced 1/4 inch TRS" like it says in the specs!? maybe someone can clear that up?? Thanks!

Hi Kevin, Good to see you again. Summary: From what you've written and what I found about your guitar: Your guitar output is unbalanced. A good quality 1/4 Tip-Sleeve cable is all you need to connect your guitar to any of the T1® 1/4" inputs. The information on the website https://www.bose.com/en_us/pro...ch-audio-engine.html could have been clearer. I'll address your questions below. I tried to find technical details for you guitar.

Ah ok, I see! Thanks for the clarification! I guess the slight mis print on the specs led to part of the confusion and threw me a little. Nonetheless that's all good and thanks as always for the patience and time to read down through the queries! Guess I've only really realised that guitars give out balanced or more commonly 'unbalanced' signals - hence the TR instrument cable and yes you're correct it's is Fishman Pro-Blend Matrix system used! Thanks again! Kevin

Hi Kevin, We have an article Connect a microphone to T1® Channel 4/5 You see that you need an impedance matching tranformer. Please follow the link for more details. See the article linked above. I would prioritize and use T1® Channels 1, 2, 3 for vocal microphones. If I had other inputs like guitar and cajon, I'd route them to Channel 4/5 using the impedance matching transformer. Some people here have run two microphones into one channel, but the singers must sing at similar volume for this...

S1 Pro outdoors

troubador ·
So I had an interesting gig yesterday ... I thought I'd share my experience and post a few questions to see what advice folks would have for me. I was asked to play at an event that was outdoors. The invite said that there would not be any power (it was the parking lot of a mall) but battery powered amps were permitted. Of course, I took my S1. Photo of the stage attached. When I got there, I found that the organizers had set up a small stage - with no canopy under the bright morning sun.

Hiss

Ted ·
I know I have posted about this before and I thought i was OK with the background hiss. But now it seems to vary with volume. Here is a audio/video of the second channel with a fender speaker cable plugged in and the other end plugged in to a digital accordion DI and turned on. The hiss diminishes with turning off the instrument. Should it be making this noise? Would using a balance cable be worth trying?

Hi I'm using an L1 MKII with Tonematch - the Tonematch and an iPad for my music content fastened to my mic stand. The consequent cables (including mic / audio feed from iPad to Tonematch / and Tonematch to powerbase feed can sometimes look at bit hairy. Does anyone have any good ideas as to how to minimise the visual impact of these in a simple manner? Is there a "down the mic stand "flexi something" to feed the cables or specific cables that make routing easier / better? Thanks.

Hi ST - if this is the case ("it doesn't matter which end goes in 4 or 5") why do Bose in their ToneMatch troubleshooting section give the advice to make sure in the case of poor-sounding playback from CD/MP3, etc, that the left channel is plugged into T1 input channel 4, and the right channel into T1 input channel 5??? More confusingly, the channels don't even seem to be marked 4 and 5 on my unit! Look forward to enlightenment . . . .

Re: T1 tone match channels 4/5

Hi Weedsy, I'm guessing that you are referring to this text: Channel 4/5 is actually one channel with two inputs. Those two inputs are summed to mono. It doesn't matter whether you connect Left to 4 and Right to 5 or the other way around. Channel 4/5 is not explicitly labeled 4 separate from 5. All okay now, Weedsy? ST

Re: T1 tone match channels 4/5

Thanks, ST - the one time I RTFM and all it did was confuse me . . . . I found out that 4/5 were summed to mono after I spent some time altering my iPad prefs to mono output, hence couldn't understand the specific channel connection instructions in p. 51 of the manual. Many thanks for the clarification - I'll go back to the old system; don't read the manual; and if you do - ignore it! Cheers, Weedsy
