Bose L1 Compact + larger L1 model = stereo??

dagh ·
Hi guys! The first time I write in here. Instead of having two equal Compacts for stereo, has some experience with replacing one of them with a larger model, will this work with different PAs?

Hi DagH, Thank you for joining the Community. It's nice to meet you. If you don't push the volume to the limits of the L1® Compact, you can get some good stereo results with an L1® Compact and an L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II. There are some interesting differences between the models. The L1® Compact goes down to around 65 Hz. The L1® Model 1S and Model II go down to around 40 Hz. At moderate volume, if you are not deliberately listening for differences of a mismatched pair, you may not...

Thank you for your answer! and nice to be here. This was a more general question. Based on that I hope to get jobs on different places with different space. I now there is several factors to consider, but with your answer I feel that I am not doomed to fail. There could be something that I had forgotten to think about. There are discussions on Internet about using two Compacts, but not much about using different models. I think that with different size, you can chose between the most...

Your hall has the same size as where I played. Don't know your prx. But where the my non-Bose speaker was placed there was a closet, and the roof was only about 2,5 meter. So I had to place it near the closet and a towards the roof to get more bass out of it. It worked well for me, but I don't need so much bass in my music as you with your HipHop. I have not tried with the speaker on the floor. My own experience with Bose, is only two times playing with my Compact (and listening to the other...

1. Today I was playing with my Bose L1 compact in stereo, but not together with another Bose, because I don't have one yet. Instead I had to use an ordinary 12 or 15 inch? speaker together with my Compact. I had prepared myself with a cheap graphic equalizer with long cables, out on the dance floor. My hypopthesis was that I had to mix to change the frequency response, especially in the higher frequences, and not so much in the lower. Because the higher frequencies are more directed...

Re: How to get stereo with Bose L1?

Hi HY, Thank you for joining the Community. Wonderful. The L1® is mono. If your source is stereo (two channels designated Left and Right) you would require two L1®s to make stereo. T1® channel 4/5 combines the Left and Right channels to mono. Please tell us how you will be using your L1®. Will you be playing pre-recorded music, or using it for live performances? Thank you, ST

How to get stereo with Bose L1?

HO YOUNG ·
Hi guys, I am going to buy BOSE L1 Model II system. One quick question is how to get stereo with Bose L1 system(only single system, not two for left and right). If the music source is stereo file then the single line array can make "Stereo Sound" or it requires one more system for Left and Right to make stereo? The stereo source can send T1 4/5 channel and then the single line array(speaker) can make stereo sound or it can be mono sound? Thank you for your kind help. HY

Thank you, ST, for your quick and kind explnation. I expected the stereo sound with just one "L1 Model II System". I am playing Saxophone with stereo back-sound source but it might be just one L1 system doesn't make stereo sound unfortunately. Having two L1 system is cost for me. Um.........@^.^@.... Thank you, HY

Hi HY, Thanks for the added information. Let me suggest that you may not need to run stereo for your back-sound source. The L1® Model II has extremely wide sound dispersion. This means you don't need two systems to fill a room you may not need two to create a sense of fullness for your back-sound I have done many shows with background music during the breaks through a single L1®. No one has ever asked for stereo. I also know several solo performers who use a single L1® for backing tracks.

I would think the wide dispersion of the line array speakers would negate any stereo imaging with 2 compacts. I have used stereo backing tracks with a single unit and when playing back normal stereo tracks you get a room filling sound with such an even volume thoughout the room that stereo would probably not add much for you. Recently I was able to set up in a huge shop of a friend of mine and he was amazed at the way the Compact was so even all over the room. Even behind a half wall on one...

Hi Phil, I noticed your post in the Ask Bose for Help forum. Phil posted: just bought L1 1S B2 plus a Tonemaster T1 Question re T1 cabling for connecting an iphone for backing tracks -I am confused, internet search and manual are contradictory. 1.Why can't I simply use the 3.5 mm from the phone and connect to input 1/2 or 3 via a 1/4 stereo jack 2. Do I really have to buy a new cable to connect 3.5mm from phone to 2x 1/4 inch mono jacks into channel 4/5. Also, on this point some of the...

One issue is preventing damage to your iPhone by shorting L & R together with the wrong adapter. Same with your Passport. Another issue is getting good sound. A balanced input 1/4" uses tip and ring as plus and minus. A headphone jack uses tip and ring as Left plus and Right plus. If you connect two pluses to the plus and minus all you will hear is the difference between the two, instead of the addition of both, (like you want).

Hi Steve, The 1/4" inputs on T1® channel 4/5 are balanced. There's more about the T1® in the article linked below. T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine ST

Very interesting. Good to know that the 1/4" insides of the combo jacks on inputs 1,2,3 are unbalanced (I assumed that they wouldn't be)

Hi Simpa-tico2, Great question. The L1® Compact has two different stereo inputs: 1/8" Tip-Ring-Sleeve RCA jacks for left and right In the picture below the stereo inputs are marked "Connect backing track device here" We have notes here: Stereo Mixer to Mono L1® If you need more information, please tell us about your stereo source device. Thanks, ST

What does the L1 Compact do with a stereo input signal?

Re: Stereo input to L1 Compact

To tell the truth I own and love an L1. I was thinking of using it as our home “stereo” and I was curious about the way the system handles stereo. I always feel like I’m hearing both channels, but wanted to be sure. Thanks very much for your help!

Hi Simpa-tico2, A stereo signal is mixed to mono internally. You get both channels, but without the stereo image. Are you near an L1® dealer where you can hear it? How are you planning to use an L1® Compact? ST

Thanks for the reply! But I’m asking how to bring a stereo signal into the L1. I want to know how the unit handles stereo. When it receives a stereo signal does it render a stereo image? Do I truly get both channels?

Hi Sampa-tico2, Your L1® Compact has extremely wide horizontal dispersion. In a room at home, you will often get very nice early side reflections and a generous sense of spaciousness. Enjoy your L1®. ST
