Looping Monitors into the F1s

TomF1 ·
Hi, I play in a Pink Floyd 4 piece cover band (Midnight-Floyd.com) and we had very mixed results with the F1s for various reasons. One of the issues we have a lot is feedback because we often loop 2 600w Harbingers between the 812s and the mixer. So the chain is currently: Mixer XAir18 -> Sennheiser In Ear Monitor Transmitter -> Harbinger Monitor -> F1 812 -> F1 Sub. We are all plugged into the mixer (Digital drum set, bass direct in, Kemper profiling amp, keys, mics) The reason...

Would L1 model 2 work as monitors with F1 system

dbmurcia ·
Hi, some background info. My sons are in a Coldplay tribute band and do gigs in venues for between 200 - 800 people (inside and and outside). I recently upgraded their PA to 2x F1 tops & 2x 812 subs the FOH sound is fantastic, really happy with them. The problem is they now have a stage set up with a stage runway of around 4 meters for the vocalist. I have to say the crowd love it and it makes it more Coldplay. The issue is major feedback with the PA situated in the conventional area...

S1 Pro system as stage monitors with F1 Model 812 and F1 Subwoofer

Hi Everybody, I just did a test with Two F1s (F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofer) Two S1 Pros for stage monitors I set up the F1s on the front edge of the stage on either side, facing the audience area. I put the S1 Pros behind the line between the F1s, facing back toward the performers' area. I used the S1 Pros in the horizontal position as stage monitors. There were no other performers; just me being loud (with hearing protection). I pushed the F1s hard. From the stage area behind the F1s,...

T1 Tonematch out to powered floor monitor AND house main

Hello to all. Long time lurker, I've learned so much on this forum already with great appreciation. I've hit a snag and was hoping I could get some advice.

Using a monitor with Bose L1 Model 1

Gilbert ·
Hey, We currently have 2 model 1 L1 systems. For most gigs we play, we place the L1s behind the band but occasionally, for whatever reason (space limitations etc) we have to place them in front of the band. When this happens, we obviously loose the advantage of hearing that the crowd is hearing. What would be the easiest way to hook up floor wedge monitors to L1s? Can I use a passive monitor or does it have to be active? Thanks :-)

S1 Pros with F1 Stack (2) - April Live Gig Report

ModernVintageDC ·
Hello Bose Community, If any of you have seen my other posts regarding the use of the S1 Pros for gigging, I noted that I would follow up after completing a few live outdoor shows in April. Report details: I had a number of indoor gigs in Jan-March experimenting with using the S1s as FOH/Monitors both with and without the F1 Sub. After achieving excellent results, I was eagerly awaiting the test to use S1s as monitors for larger events and use the F1 Stacks as Front of the House (FOH)...

T4S monitor outs easier to use than I expected

Jim Mead ·
Somehow, I got the mis-impression that each of the four input channels on the T4S could only send a monitor out signal to one of the two monitor outputs. I was wrong. I also thought it would be tricky to punch each channel selector, and then find the monitor mix settings. Also wrong. Used both monitor outs on a gig tonight, and found it very easy and quick to adjust each set of inputs in each monitor during live performance. Also used an S1Pro as one of the monitors - on battery.

T8S Aux Out assignment issues and scene persistence

I have two issues with my T8S: First, I can't seem to assign individual channels to individual Aux outs.

Wondering if anyone has tried/experienced using Wireless Ear Monitors thought the Output of the L1 Compact.

L1s and compact with t8s and monitors?

I have a job this weekend where I would like to use my L1s and compact as the “mains” on either side of the stage, but I may have to use a qsc and/or my s1 pro wedge as well (for the drummer and the lead singer). I just got the t8s, but I’m not entirely sure how to connect all this properly. My assumption is to use 1/4in trs cables from the outs on the t8s into the L1s and channel 2 on the compact. Would I run the wedges into the main outs on the t8s?

Re: L1 Compact Output to Wireless/Bluetooth Ear Monitors

I would use a small mixer and feed everything into that and send an out from that to each Compact rather than daisy chain. You then have an Aux out on your mixer to feed whichever channels you want into your monitor, being in ear of floor monitor

Re: L1 Compact Output to Wireless/Bluetooth Ear Monitors

A music store suggested a bluetooth transmitter and earbuds for monitoring? Do their employees actually gig? We've tested it out and even with APTX bluetooth, you still get an unacceptable delay for monitoring live sound. Bluetooth is good for backing tracks. Good wireless In-Ear Monitors will cost you more than an S1 Pro. Cheaper would be get a small mixer and plug some wired in-ears into them. We mainly DJ but we also do a lot of sound reinforcement for conferences, schools, and occasional...

Our acoustic trio is left-right lead vox, cajon+vox, guitar+vox. We run a small Mackie ProFX mixer into two L1 Compacts (Mackie Left/Right XLR outputs to Left & Right L1 Compacts via Balanced 1/4" inputs, ToneMatch off). A couple of notes: The L1 Compact has near 180 degree coverage and are actually designed to be *behind* the performer, maybe off to the side a hair, so in your setup your mic may be to close to the sides of the L1's and causing the feedback. We've always had our L1's...

Re: L1 Compact Output to Wireless/Bluetooth Ear Monitors

Excellent! Glad to hear it performed better and the XLR splitter worked without issue. Regarding the mixer out, you can either either use the 1/4" or XLR Main outs to the Bose 1/4" inputs. Ideally you would use balanced cables: 1/4" TRS to TRS, or XLR to 1/4" TRS (which I use). You can use unbalanced 1/4" TS cables, i.e. a guitar or keyboard signal cable, but you would lose about 6dB in volume level, and if your cables are longer than 25' you may start to lose some highs.

Very cool I wanted to ask where you got your keyboard and freestanding banners at? We have a couple of 8"x10" logos we Velcro to the front of our L1's (below the speakers, of course, heehee) and one larger 2'x6'(ish) that we bought to hang behind us, but it's rare that we can actually hang that on the walls of where we play.

Hey Doc, Really not that surprising when you think about is, as when you plugged the mic/Helicon into the XLR jacks on the L1c you had the benefit of Bose's ToneMatch that is automatically configured on that input for a vocal mic, whereas the 1/4" line input is not. While the 1/4" input does have a ToneMatch setting, it's designed around a guitar input (I'd be curious to hear how a keyboard sounds with the ToneMatch switch on, as keys and guitar occupy similar frequency ranges).
