Liebe Members

Ich habe mir als Event Dj 2 Bose L1 Model 2 mit B2 Bassmodul zugelegt. Nun habe ich einige Fragen wegen der Anschlussmöglichkeiten.

1. Mein DJ Controller hat 2 XLR Master Ausgänge die ich auch verwende. Nun hat aber die Bose L1 "nur" ein Klinke Anschluss. Wenn ich beide Bose L1 verwende gehe ich auf dem rechten Kanal mit XLR - Klinke Stereo und mit dem linken Kanal auch XLR - Klinke Stereo. Jetzt habe ich aber in diversen Beiträgen im Forum gelesen, dass evtl. ein Mono-Klinke besser wäre, stimmt das?

2. Wenn ich aber nur kleine Anlässe habe möchte ich evtl. nur eine Bose L1 verwenden. Macht das überhaupt Sinn, oder ist Stereo immer besser? Wenn ich aber trotzdem mal nur ein System brauchte, wie schliesse ich das an meinen DJ Controller an? Der Controller lässt sich auch auf Mono umschalten. Soll ich beide XLR Master Ausgänge verwenden und auf 1 Klinke Stereo an der Bose Anlage gehen? Oder reicht es wenn ich nur einen XLR Master Kanal belege und den Controller auf Mono stelle?

3. Ich habe noch ein Backup-Controller der nur Clinch-Anschlüsse hat. Ich habe gelesen, dass der Klinke-Anschluss an der L1 für Clinch nicht geeignet ist, stimmt das? Meine alten PA's hatten 2 Eingänge XLR und Clinch und beide gingen problemlos. Ich hatte den Backup-Controller auch angeschlossen aber ich bekam bei weitem nicht die volle Leistung. Was mache ich hier falsch? Nur so als Test versucht ich mein I-Phone Clinch-Anschluss an die Bose L1 anzuschliessen, das Ergebnis war, die Musik kam nur sehr leise aus der Bose L1.

Danke für euer Feedback

Dear Members

I bought myself as Event Dj 2 Bose L1 Model 2 with B2 bass module. Now I have some questions about the connection options.

1. My DJ controller has 2 XLR master outputs which I also use. But now the Bose L1 has "only" a jack connection. If I use both Bose L1 I go on the right channel with XLR - jack stereo and with the left channel also XLR - jack stereo. But now I have read in various posts in the forum, that possibly a mono-jack would be better, right?

2. If I have only small occasions I would like to use only a Bose L1. Does that make any sense, or is stereo always better? But if I only needed one system anyway, how do I connect it to my DJ controller? The controller can also be switched to mono. Should I use both XLR Master outputs and go to 1 jack stereo on the Bose system? Or is it enough if I show only one XLR master channel and set the controller to mono?

3. I still have a backup controller that only has clinch connectors. I read that the jack connection on the L1 is not suitable for clinch, is that correct? My old PA's had 2 inputs XLR and clinch and both went smoothly. I also had the backup controller connected but I did not get the full performance by far. what am I doing wrong here? Only as a test, I tried my I-Phone Clinch connection to connect to the Bose L1, the result was, the music came only very quietly from the Bose L1.

Thanks for your feedback

Hi DJ Hampi,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community.

I am sorry I can't reply to you in German.

Yes.

No, that would not be better.  The L1 Model II Power Stand Analog Input is a balanced connection.

Model 1S Analog Input

The mono jack converts the connection to unbalanced.  A balanced connection is better.



2. If I have only small occasions I would like to use only a Bose L1. Does that make any sense, or is stereo always better? But if I only needed one system anyway, how do I connect it to my DJ controller? The controller can also be switched to mono.

Switch the controller to mono and connect one output using the same cable as above.

Do you mean outputs like this?

You can use cables like this.

DO NOT USE A CABLE LIKE THIS - IT WILL NOT WORK

You cannot connect a stereo signal to the L1 Model II Power Stand Analog Input because it is a balanced input. There's a detailed explanation in this article.

Thanks Troubador for the quick answer, that helped me a lot.

DJ Hampi

The very helpful and detailed answers came from @ST, not me.

If you spend more time on this forum, you'll find that @ST is a wise sage, a font of wisdom and a very helpful person.

He's the one who helped you out!
