Outputting L1 Model II to house sound systems

hoohaa1 ·
Hi. I've been using my L1 Mode 2 for a few years now and love it. My only issues have always been in small spaces cranking the system up high enough without feedback as I am using it as intended as monitor and PA. In the interim, I've done a few gigs in restaurants/bars that have high spec sounds systems and you can connect what looks like an XLR. The input on wall is female. I've not tried out yet as didn't have right cable. What's the best cable to get to connect and try that out? Is it a...

L1 Compact to external speakers

Ibraheem Malik ·
Hello! i had a quick question for you all. I have a new L1 compact system I'm using in a school's main hall, to improve sound quality in the main hall. My problem is that the previous wired speaker system that sits in the ceiling of the rooms isn't linking nicely with my L1 compact's output. Every time I plug the ceiling speakers into the output of my Bose, there is a harsh crackling coming out of the speakers. Currently I'm just using a mic into line 1 of the bose, and the output is the...

Brand new L1 Model 2 doesn't always output sound when switched on

Sticko ·
Hi I just bought a new L1 Model2 B2 system, which sounds great. BUT Normally, when I switch the system on, the blue light comes on, the fan comes on (you can hear it) and then when I unmute the T1 inputs and play, there's audio coming out of the system. THE PROBLEM Sometimes (the 2 first weeks it was systematic and now it's every 5-6 switch-ons) the blue light comes on, the fan DOESN'T come on and when I unmute the T1 inputs and play, there's NO audio coming out of the (brand new) system!

Source Output Levels for Bose F1 System

DJ8X ·
I have read in a few places that the Bose F1 system performs best when connected to a source with a strong output level. I am wondering just how true this may be. I lean toward the idea that the F1 system performs well no matter the source. I was able to connect my system to two sources with different output levels, and I was able to achieve optimal sound on both sources. My test was very non-scientific. I just used the limit indicators on the F1 Sub and 812 as a reference point. I was able...

Output from L1 M2 with Tonematch to Sonos Play 5

Hi everyone. My son and I (vocal, keys, acoustic guitar) are playing an outdoor wedding ceremony/reception with our L1 M2 + T1. The happy couple would like us to interface to their Sonos Play 5 (which takes a 3/8" stereo mini plug input) so that they can also have our music in a covered area away from the dancing and also have it on blue tooth throughout their house. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding the best way to do this? The signal from the T1 will obviously be mono so what...

Need specs on S1 Pro TRS Output

My question is about your S1 Pro described at https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/portable_pa_speakers/s1_pro_system.html with regards to the TRS output. I need to use it for other than a speaker. What is its nominal output level, impedance, and allowable load so that the load does not affect the S1? Many thanks.

T1 to L1M2 via ethernet - Can I use the Master Output to a Powered Speaker?

DavidE2 ·
I'm playing a big room on Saturday and am not confident the L1M2 will be enough. I want to hook up a separate powered speaker but have the T1 output to that speaker use the channel volume knobs so the aux isn't the solution. Can I send the normal T1 master output to a powered speaker while sending the signal to the L1M2 via the cat5 (or whatever it is) cable? Thanks!

Windows 10 Mono Output

If you are connecting your Windows computer to a ToneMatch mixer and you are running mono, you don't need to use two inputs if your source is mono. In previous versions of Windows, it was not easy to convert the headphone output to mono. Now it's easy. Click Start Settings Ease of Access Audio Turn on mono audio Then use a cable like this to connect the computer headphone output to one of the 1/4" (6.3 mm) inputs on your ToneMatch mixer. ST

Hello Everyone-- first-time caller, long time listener :) My S1 PRO failed last night for the first time ever.

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

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.

Our acoustic trio is left-right lead vox, cajon+vox, guitar+vox.

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...

Hi J, see my bulleted responses below: "Update: continued my research concluded the following re: Mixer" the L1 Compact already has a preamp when using the XLR Mic Input with Treble and Bass Gain Yes, this is true, but it's an overall EQ, nothing you can really use to dial out offending feedback frequencies.

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.

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).

Hi Jwandass3, From what I can see on the Sonos site the Play:5 does not support Bluetooth so I don't know how this "and also have it on blue tooth throughout their house" is supposed to work.
