Hi norpal, Are you looking for a long bag for one of the sections of the Cylindrical Radiator®? If so, you can probably order one from Bose Support. The size of the Cylindrical Radiator® bags is the same for the L1 Classic, L1 Model 1, and L1 Model II. If you are looking for a bag for the power stand (semi-circular shape), these were discontinued years ago. ST

Philip to Bose Community...HELP!!!!

Banjoman ·
Guys, I'm a fair musician, but I'm a lousy technician. I have (2) L1 Portables and T1 . My group consists of 3 people: myself on 5 string Deering Banjo and Taylor 200e acoustic plus vocals (SM58), a female vocalist on an SM58, and another acoustic guitarist on a Taylor acoustic 400 series who does limited vocals. How should I set the T1 to play mid-size coffee shop venues? Suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Hi Kristy, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm glad you're here. Is it possible that someone turned down the trim controls? Please check out this article with videos. T1 Gain Staging You didn't mention what you have connected to the T1; an L1 Compact or L1 Model 1S or L1 Model II? If you are connecting to an L1 Compact, you will get a stronger signal if you use a 1/4" (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable from the T1 Master Output ot L1 Compact Channel 2. And be sure to set the ToneMatch...

Hi Kristy, When you sing loudly or turn up the volume on the ipad, do the trim lights (about the knobs) turn red? How are you connecting the T1 to the L1 Model II Power Stand. Are you using the ToneMatch connector (round barrel, square connector inside), or a 1/4" (6.3 mm) cable to the Analog Input? Thanks, ST

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the L1 Model 2 is not meant to be operated without either a bass module (either B1 or B2) . The old L1 Classic could be used this way (& maybe the L1 Mod 1 also), but the L1/M2 sounds pretty awful without the bass module.

Hi Patrizia, Brad is right! The L1® Model 1S and Model II are engineered to work with bass modules: one or two B1s one B2 They are not intended for use without bass module. ST

Hi Sushil, I thought very carefully about the size of your big celebration hall and that you want to use it for dance with full music. I can't think of anything smaller than another L1® Compact for this purpose. Why not? If you want the same sound quality, then you want another L1® Compact. If you think the L1® Compact is not loud enough for your music, the only alternatives to the L1® Compact would be a larger L1® like the L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II.

Hi Steve, >can you elaborate on what you were unsatisfied with? Since the F1 Sub is tuned for the F1 Model 812, I found the crossover point to be too low when used with and L1. The B2 slope is at a hugher frequency than the F1 so it's a better match for the L1.

A friend of mind told me his Bose L1 sounded terrible. He did not have any of the channel presets set up correctly. Once he got that straight it sounded great. I had a volume issue with my backing tracks on channel 4/5. I had the preset on DJ/Playback. It turned out to be a bad cable. You have to have a good quality Y cable (left/right 1/4 inch mono) to stereo mini jack. A couple of other times one of the 1/4 in. was not all the way in or the mini was not making good contact with the iPad.

Ugh. Was happily using my treasured L1 yesterday when all of a sudden the sound died. The Power on light now stays orange and the two input channel signal light red, all with everything unplugged.

I currently have a pair of L1 Series Model II stands with B2 subs. Occasionally when I play smaller venues I will use a single L1 M2 and use both of the B2 subs for more low end resonance. Would there be an issue with using the F1 Subwoofer instead of a pair of the B2s? I realize, that surface area would be decreased by half, by going with 1 pair of 10" subs versus having 4 10" subs running. The output power of the L1 stand is 250 watts to a single B2, as it is the same with the packlite amp...

Hi Alcools, The F1 is designed to be used as a Front of House system set up as a pair on either side, at or near the front of the stage. The performers will be between and likely, slightly behind the F1s. Yes, you will need stage monitors (return speakers). Yes, this is different from the L1s that were designed to be placed behind the performers. If you put the F1s behind the performers you may get more feedback (larsen) than with the L1s - at the same level (if we are talking about the same...

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 :-)

Well with the L1 you can always add an extra sub if you need. Either another B2 with the preamp (I don't think the model II can run 2 B2's?) or an external powered sub. Some use the F1 subs.

Hi Patrizia, I'm not sure where you're located - I live in Canada and deal with Long & McQuade Music regularly. They have both products available for rent, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to try each for a gig to see how it works for you. It's a relatively small cost for a large investment. Given that, in my opinion, I would not purchase an L1s. I would go for the L1M2 with B2 bass. Nothing wrong at all with the L1s, however, we have had much success with the L1M2B2 system.

Hi Cactus Man, Great question. The L1® can deliver the music. There are a few things that may catch you by surprise. Monitoring for vocalists. With four vocals coming out of one loudspeaker, it may be a challenge for the vocalists to hear themselves individually in the mix. With four open microphones you may have trouble getting sufficient gain-before-feedback. With that many microphones I would run the vocal microphones to the T1 so I can use the Noise Gate to avoid feedback. Here are some...

I own 2 L1 Model 11 units with 4 B2 bass bottoms for over 3 years now. We use this for the band PA. We just played here in Phoenix Wednesday night outside in 111 degree heat. One unit kept cutting in and out. This has happened a few times in the past. Twice I sent the unit to Bose for this problem and was told nothing could be found but circuit boards were updated.
