L1® Classic, missing R1 Remote and cable

ixtlan23 ·
Need help. Just Got an L1 Model 1 Classic from GC but it's missing the R1, and it's cable. I manage to find the Remote bit I couldn't find any R2 cable on the web. Where can I possibly find one? Thank you. Note: Created this as a new topic for @ixtlan23 -- Bose Pro Community Admin

Hi ixtlan23 Any 7-wire MIDI cable will work. You can purchase these from music stores which sell instruments and cables. Thanks, MattS-at-Bose

Added note: Just be careful not to get a 5-Wire MIDI Cable. The standard 5-Wire cable will not work properly.

I did a similar event but I had to mic a violin against a full grand. Would you have a chance to use a cardioid condenser clip on mic? I'd recommend that over a plain dynamic mic. A hyper cardioid pencil condenser would work as well. An AKG C1000s would be good for this. Several condenser can run off a AA or 9v battery. Any equivalent AT mic would be excellent as well. The Tone Match on the L1C is an SM58 preset, but yes it does work well on other mics too. For positioning, behind and off to...

L1 Compact for cello and organ

GLB Productions ·
Hello everyone :) I have a recording gig coming up in a month or so which involves a solo cellist - amongst other works he'll be playing Marcel Dupré’s sonata for cello and organ, which has never been performed in Singapore before. The current plan is to use no reinforcement at all, as the venue is a concert hall. However, given that the hall is fairly large for solo cello (600+ seats) I can foresee balance issues when it comes to this particular piece, especially for those seated in the...

Thanks for the reply John - we had the production meeting today and the cellist was pretty positive about not needing any reinforcement so we left it at that Let me ask you something else, seeing as you have a great deal more experience than me in using the L1 products: how do condenser mics sound through them? Given that the L1s do not use compression drivers and the top end starts to roll off around 12-14K, I would think that this imparts something of a different character to the sound.

Condenser mics sound great on the L1. Yes there is a roll-off, but in practice, it's not missed. Let me explain, most venues, apart from open-air, will enhance higher frequencies due to hard walls, glass, etc. Not to mention, the actual instrument making the music (cymbals, violin, piccolo) Now, those frequencies are very hard to replicate even with compression drivers unless you're ok with some harshness. It's a matter of compromise, which would you rather have? Neither answer is right or...

Replacing broken control panel lid on an L 1 Classic

I had a mishap and the "hinge pin" on the left end of the rear control panel cover broke off. I want to see about getting a new cover for the rear control panel of the Bose L1 Classic. (The oldest, large, round version.)

L1 Classic Died last night....ugh. Now What?

seamuspg ·
My L1 Classic finally pooped out on me last night, mid-gig, and so now I must bid farewell, but also make a decision. I loved the Classic, but I am not someone who believes the L1 is the only PA setup capable of great sound. My one gripe, (or hesitancy to diving right back into the L1) is both setup time and the lugging of its components. I play solo acoustic, or with a bass player in small venues, bars, restaurants, etc... It still takes me 3 trips to/from car and approximately 25-30mins to...

Hi seamuspg, I will admit upfront that I have been a Bose L1 fan since the very beginning. That said, I too had one of my two Classics bite the dust this month after 14 years of service (fortunately at rehearsal, not during a gig) and faced the same choice. Please take ST's advice and talk to Customer Support. At first, I was a bit disappointed that my Classics could not be repaired, but Bose treated me very well and I now own 2 L1 MIIs to replace my Classics. The trade program is awesome.

Hi seamuspg, Sorry to hear about the demise of your L1 Classic. When a piece of equipment eventually dies most of us consider how to replace it. Should it be a newer version of the gear or something completely different? Very true. There are many systems available which are capable of delivering good sound. I would be asking myself questions like this. How important is it for me to have a really good sound that is the same everywhere in a square or rectangular room, rather than just within a...

I had a Classic & Mod 1 fail on me within 1 year. Neither could be repaired. I ended up replacing both with L1/Mod2's. I wasn't happy about the non repairable situation, but they offered discounts on upgrades to the Mod2's. They have worked out well so far. I preferred the connectivity options on the Classic/Mod1. The connection options on the Mod2 are pretty limited unless you have the Tonematch or a standard mixer. But they are easier to move & take up less floor space. There are...

Connecting an L1 Classic with an L1 Compact with a single T1 for MONO

Dissidentman ·
Hello, I'm new here as of today. I am trying to get my girlfriend's band practice space set up, and they have the equipment listed: 1 - L1 Classic, 1 - L1 Compact, and 1 - T1 ToneMatch. They would like to have the T1 connected directly to the L1 Classic, then the L1 Classic output to the L1 Compact so the same sounds are heard coming from both units. I found a diagram showing essentially what we are trying to do, I am just wondering if the blue line indicating "your input" can be the T1...

Hi Kevin, Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable Community and thanks for the interesting question. You did some great research too. Sure! That will work, but there's an easier way. See below. Connecting the T1 to Channel 3 (like the diagram immediately above) won't work for you. There's no way to get Channel 3 through to another device. I might be easier if you connect the T1 to the L1 Compact, and the L1 Compact to the L1 Classic. You won't need an adapter or adapter cable (XLR to...

Hi Kevin, a warm welcome to the community from me too. This has all been covered excellently by ST and he's shown you the possibilities you have for doing what you've described. Using both systems to amplify the same signals seems to be a waste of resources in my opinion. Depending on how large the room is I would have thought that the Classic would cover everything perfectly when being fed by the T1. You don't say what the band is made up of (vocals, instruments etc.) Just bear with me here...

Re: Connecting an L1 Classic with an L1 Compact with a single T1 for MONO

The band is made up of a lead singer, bass, guitar and drums. 3 vocal mics through the Bose, and bass and guitar going through their own rigs. The Compact was purchased for acoustic performances with 2 mics and 1 guitar. The Classic was added when the full band lost their original practice space that had a traditional PA that they would travel with to shows. The hope is that when they play venues with no house PA, we would take this setup with us, which might mean there is a 4th microphone...

Tony, this is great information! Looks like I might have a L1 Compact for sale soon. They may want to use the Compact as a monitor for the band members on the opposite side of the stage from the L1 Classic - they will have to determine that after a couple of practices. Thank you for all of the valuable input. -Kevin

Hi Kevin, Thanks for this information. It wasn't absolutely necessary to be able to answer the set up question you asked. However it can be a help if we want to maybe offer you alternative advice. Basically you can never have too much information. not enough information can happen very easily. This wasn't a bad choice for acoustic performances in small locations when coupled with a T1. I've used mine for a 3 piece acoustic band with 4 mics, a bass or acoustic guitar going through a modeler...

I would think twice about selling the Compact, even if the Classic is enough for the Band. Should the Classic suddenly fail the Compact would be a back-up for smaller, quieter locations at a push and due to its size could always be taken to gigs as a reserve in case of mishaps or maybe the need for more extensive monitoring. I have a Model II and a Compact. The Compact I use for smaller gigs, but it gives a certain piece of mind should the Model II fail. In the case of extra monitoring, I...

I hope that the 1st practice went OK and that you all had a lot of fun yesterday. What we've not mentioned up to now (but maybe that's not necessary) is that the Bose Microphone Presets are EQ'd for what we call "Close Miking" which means that the lips are very close to (or even brushing) the mesh of the microphone. In this position most microphones display what it called the "proximity effect" an emphasizes the lower frequencies. I'm telling you this for 2 reasons. 1) If a vocalist has the...

L1 Classic - Clicking Noise

mmclogistics ·
Hello! We're a nationwide entertainment company, and one of our locations is working with an L1 Classic which is making a clicking noise. It's always in the background when speaking into the mic, and when music is playing, it overpowers the music. We've tried switching cables, unplugging everything and plugging back in, but the noise is still there. Does anyone have suggestions/ideas as far as what may be causing the issue or potential solutions? It's also worth noting that this system is at...

Sorry to hear about the trouble. If this doesn't just end up being a power/grounding issue with the outlet in question, then this seems to be internal, and there is nothing we could try, short of what you have already tried. I suggest calling our Pro Portable support team at 877-335-2673 for a service solution.
