S1 Pro Firmware update problem - USB cable

I had great problems updating. It turned out to be the USB cable. Some cables are not standard, this is common in cables that are shipped with items for charging that don’t require data transfer. Edit title: Previously 'Firm Wear Update Problem"

Re: Choosing a sub for the S1

Any of the Ampeg BA series amps are excellent choices as powered sub woofers for The Bose S1 Pro. Even the $99 buck Ampeg BA 108 has superior acoustical output and will not bottom out at the lowest frequencies. It also has a tilt back feature like the Bose S1 Pro. Two of these tilted back would cover a very large room, with two Bose S1 Pro's. They have 60 degree coverage each and one could easily get 150 degree coverage out of two of them overlapping at the right angles with clean and floor...

I would probably not want to mix Behringer with Bose. IMO Behringer is entry level. I own a rental company with mainly EV, Bose, QSC, and JBL speakers. You have Bose, stay with quality throughout.

Thanks Michael! That sub looks like it would match the S1 very nicely. Impressive reviews.

I don’t have any experience with sub woofers (I’m a magician) but I’ve been tempted to try this one with my S1 Pro: https://www.sweetwater.com/sto...ch-powered-subwoofer

Hi Ric, Looking at the Ampeg website and the Ampeg BA108 Owners Manual The 60-degree specification refers to the monitoring angle, not the horizontal coverage. Bass frequencies tend to be omnidirectional (unless you are using bass arrays and digital signal processing - not applicable here). ST

I use an EV ZXA1 12" Sub with my L1 Compacts for small events. I have a pair of S1's coming in next week. When they come in I'll test it out with the sub. It might actually be better with the S1s because I should be able to roll off the bass from the S1s rather than have to add a crossover.

Yes a second S1 worked well also. Just thinking a bit more low end clear punch might lend itself well. Maybe not. Maybe I will rent a small sub and experiment a bit. Thanks Chet!

Choosing a sub for the S1

Simon Patrick ·
Thinking of possibly buying a sub for my S1. What are the minimum specs/power on a sub that would be well matched to the S1? Are there any specific subs that would be recommended for the S1? I am not in need of a lot of low end but would like to experiment with a sub to see how it affects my overall sound. Thanks in advance.

The monitor angle has more to do with throw over the heads of the audience. I own one of the older versions and stack a couple of books under it for the same effect. While it's true high frequency tones are more directional, bass can also be diminished firing directly through a crowd. This is especially true with lower wattage bass amps. An active crossover would also help.

I'm a happy Bose user. I do 20+ solo gigs a month with acoustic guitar and vocals and use a Plat Acoustic for some vocal harmonies I'm in my 5th year and started off with the AER Compact 60 on a microphone stand and loved it. It sounded natural, clear and carried surprisingly well with lots of power. About 2 years in I had an opportunity to pick up a L1 Compact at a good price and started using that. I hated the preset and found it was really hard to dial in a good sound, so I had to use an...

Hi Sparkysings, Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable Community and congratulations on getting your S1 Pro. I appreciate getting to know you through your history. You're all set for Bose gear aren't you. Thanks for the sound review with your Martin OM-28 Marquis and a Collings OM1. What kind of microphone are you using? Sure, gain is gain anywhere in the chain. As long as you're not clipping the input on the S1 Pro, you should be fine. ST

I'm still tweaking it, but it sounds excellent either with the preset, or flat and adjusting the EQ. I have a month off due to some surgery which gives me ample opportunity to experiment. I'm going to see what it sounds like with the T1, but in a sense that defeats the ultra portability of the S1 Pro. But, curiosity...... On another note, I tried the Loudbox Mini Charge just to see how it compared and although the Mini sounded good, it didn't have the rich vocal and natural guitar sound of...

I logged 20+ hours on the S1 Pro this weekend. It did an excellent job for small venues. I use Shure SM58 mics for karaoke. I ran the system via Bluetooth and wireless mics. Sure was nice not to have any wires! This was a trial weekend and it passed the test and almost paid for itself.

Hi Saxman, Thank you for posting your review. It's always great to get customer's real-world experiences and impressions. Let me pick up on a couple of your comments. This is how the S1 Pro system is supposed to work. Without the Automatic EQ, when you move the S1 Pro system from a speaker stand to the floor, it would sound overly bassy. This is because of the boundary effect . Auto EQ is not meant to change the sound because you've changed the placement of the S1 Pro, it's meant to give you...

I'll start. I've got a few big jazz boxes around here. They sound wonderful through the S1 Pro. Big, round, full, with just the right sweetness in the top end. Hint: Try your jazz guitar with the ToneMatch Preset off and roll off the bass a bit. The ToneMatch Preset for Acoustic Guitar rolls some low end and that is appropriate, but for my jazz guitars, that removes character. Turning off the Preset and roll off the bass and it's good. If you're close to the S1 Pro or playing at higher...

Re: How far does the S1 pro cover in a venue?

Hi Vintage Vibes, This depends on the size and shape of the room, how much background noise there is, and how you have the S1 Pro positioned (Tilt-back, Horizontal, on a speaker stand). You'll get the best projection when you have it at or above ear-height on a speaker stand. Please tell us about the places where you are (or will be) using your S1 Pro. Thanks.

Re: Can I run a small mixer into the S1 pro

Hi @ROBC14 yes you can, remember the eq switch in off position in any channel. You should calibrate the input gain. In your mixer 0db (analogue mixer) or -24dBFS +/- (digital mixer) is the green LED in the S1 Pro. The clip (red led) in hour mixer have to be the same (red led) in the S1 Pro. Best regards!

Hi.. i have just bought the new Bose S1 Pro system and i wanted to know if it is safe to use it with a BASS guitar and an electric guitar with a tone processor pedal, i am just concerned if it is safe to do so or is it that the s1 pro is designed only for an acoustic guitar? any support is appreciated

Hi Malcolm, The high gain tone is not an issue. You won't hurt the S1 Pro. Keep an eye on the LEDs on the channels. Red flickers are okay, but if you see solid red, turn down the volume. What kind of tone processor pedal do you have? Does it do amp emulation or speaker cabinet emulation? That's preferable to effects pedals that are designed to be run into a guitar amp. I use a Kemper Profiling Amp for some situations and a Boss GT-1 for others. It depends on the gig. I'm delighted with the...

Performance Volume S1 Pro

Spun off from: S1 Pro, L1 Compact, L1 Model II When I am practicing with the S1, I bring the volume to a level that just fills the room. I don't want to hear it more from the speaker than I do from my head or my guitar, or more from the head or guitar than from the speaker.

Hi MCG, The Bose S1 Pro is more portable than the L1® Compact. It has three channels, reverb, and Bluetooth connectivity for backing tracks. It also functions in three different positions. The L1 Compact is louder and will project farther than the Bose S1 Pro. This is partly because the L1® Compact has a built-in stand (the extensions), and more drivers in the articulated array. The L1® Compact is likely a better choice for an audience of 100 people. That's not to say that S1 Pro couldn't do...

Bose aren't very helpful when giving specs on how loud their products are. I have an L1 +B2 & people always ask me, how many watts is your PA? I can only reply 'hopefully loud enough'. I suspect that the S1 Pro will struggle outside, volume wise.

As far as the S1 Pro, I do wish they'd publish SOME kind of guidance about size of audience, wattage, etc. Even though it was hidden, you can find that info on the L1. (130 for the Compact and 500 for the L1 MII) I'd also love to see a compact with a little more power (200 watts) and bluetooth input as well.

Well, as a big Bose fan and one who has defended Bose against the Bose-bashers with facts and experience, I have to say I am somewhat disappointed at the S1 Pro (and the new Tonematches as well, but that's another post). I own a L1M2 w/2 B1s, a Compact and two T1's. I play in a duo as well as a 5- piece blues band, and use the L1s for both, and love it. We often use a Behringer powered sub for a little extra thump. My duo partner also has a Compact and T1, with a little coaxing from me.

Hi Scottcald, Here's a work in progress. Bose S1 Pro compared to Bose L1® Compact You'll find the sound pressure level and dispersion characteristics in the table on the linked page. It's difficult to do a comparison with respect to the number of people in the audience - especially because the dispersion is different and you have so many combinations of doing things. The S1 Pro is available now and I'm sure people will start coming here to talk about how it performs in various settings.
