I have the(2) L1 compacts linked together and plugged into the left channel of speaker output on mixer and the S1 plugged into the right channel of mixer but I can’t get any sound out of the S1 speaker. Any advice won’t be appreciated.

No signal from zero to one

Beau Ryan ·
Is it intended behavior for the Bose S1 Pro to output no signal until the volume knob gets to about 1-1.5? Just bought one and while streaming music over Bluetooth this is very apparent. Set the Bose volume knob for Channel 3 (BT) to zero and slowly turn up then around 1.5 the signal suddenly kicks in. Not smooth at all. Tested the same thing on Channel 1 with a mic and it seems to be less pronounced by still a noticeably abrupt transition from no signal to HELLO SOUND!

L1 1S Tonematch Channel Effects Question

Chris Newcomb ·
Hello, I have an L1 S1 with a T1 Tonematch. I love the system! Can you add more than one effect on a given channel under the "comp/gate" channel parameter on the rotary dial? For example, if I am running a microphone through Channel 2...can I put a compression effect on it and also add a De-esser as well. I have tried and when I go to 'Prefs' under 'Global' on the rotary dial...it shows Channel 2 with just 'cmp' and 'rev' (compression/reverb I assume) and no de-esser even after I have...

Unable to connect to my S1 pro using the connect app.

I recently updated my bose connect app from version 8.1.0 to 8.1.1 thinking that was the reason I was unable to connect my s1 pro speaker.

Firmware 7.0.11

There's a new firmware release 7.0.11 for the S1 Pro system It addresses this issue: EDIT S1 Pro Shutdown when you disconnect AC Power Clarification: Previously, some S1 Pro Systems would shut down if the AC power was interrupted. On those units firmware 7.0.11 changes the way an interruption to the AC power affects the S1 Pro: When an interruption in AC power is detected, the S1 Pro will go silent for four to seven seconds. The audio will resume without intervention from you. During the...

Battery drains in two-three days

ackerlyentertainment ·
I have had my S1 Pro for about 13 months and I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in the battery draining. I charged it up Friday night - used it for 90-minutes on Saturday morning. It sat in the shop until just now, Monday evening and the battery is dead. This same thing happened last Friday AM when I went to use it - had it charged up two days before. I read that BOSE recommends that we disconnect battery when not in use. This is a ridiculous option. We should not have to unscrew compartment to do this...

Connecting 2 S1's to L1 Model 2 w/ T1 Tonematch

Is it possible to use the "Party mode" Bluetooth connection between my 2 S1's, then use a TRS cable from my T1 to have all three systems play together?

Flappy & rattly sound

Phil C ·
I have had my S1 Pro since the Summer. I use it for small gigs and for practice. I use a Korg Krome DI and my guitars and bass guitar through the T1 Tonematch. My S1 has got really rattly and "flappy" when low end sounds go through it . I never run it at top volume or push it that hard and I am careful to make sure it is not peaking more than occasionally. The roughness comes at fairly low volume. Does this sound like a fault? It really doesn't sound right to me.

Kemper Profiling Amp and the L1 Model II, (or L1 Compact or S1 Pro)

ST ·
I was telling a buddy about my great experience playing a Mesa Boogie Lonestar 30 1x12 combo amp over the weekend. He's a drummer but he knows that amp and really likes it. The fellow who owns it saw how much I liked it and offered to sell it to me at a great price. Why? Because both he are the amp are 65 (amp in pounds, he in years) and although he loves the sound, he hates moving it around. A few years ago I might have snapped up that amp in a heartbeat. But as I told my buddy the drummer,...

S1 Orientation and Dispersion

Paul Rumbol ·
I have my S1 Pro arriving in a few days but I wanted to know a bit more about the orientation & dispersion even though I've read all the articles & manuals. I intend to use the S1 mounted on a trolley which already has the bottom surface at an angle very similar to the tilt back position. So this means placing the S1 flat makes it already tilted. Does this mean the EQ will change automatically to the tilt back curve even though it's not on the tilt back surface? I want the maximum...

What kind of guitar do you run through your S1 Pro system?

The S1 Pro system has been the perfect complement to this nice little jazz box 1 . I run this straight into channel 2 2 with the ToneMatch switch set to Guitar. Usually I leave the tone controls at 12:00 o'clock and the reverb off (personal preference). Simple is good. I've all kinds of compliments on the guitar tone with this easy setup.

S1 Pro performance review v Roland BA-330

Having bought an L1 (Mark1) with 2 x B2 about a fortnight ago I was really impressed and so were the audience at my first gig with it. However, the venue was switched at the last minute to a much smaller room and the L1 was a bit too big (physically). Having read reports on the S1 Pro I travelled to my nearest stockists to see if the glowing reports were justified. I took my Roland BA - 330 to do an A/B test with the S1 Pro. I was astounded at the performance and it scored over the Roland in...

Red light and clipping using S1 pro with T1 mixer.

Hi all... I did a gig tonight using the S1 pro thru the T1 mixer and the sound was really bad. The red light was almost constant and was clipping a lot. I have also noticed that when i use the T1 with other speakers (in this case an RCF Evox 8 V2) and daisy chain out to the S1 pro it sounds great. The S1 actually improves the sound coverage and quality, yet when I use T1 connected directly to the S1 pro, it clips really badly. I have tried reducing the source volume to compensate, but to no...
