burnt smell

I bought a set of SKB Cases for my L-1 system and when I open the case with the power supply in it, I smell a strong burnt electrical smell, Is this normal? I hate to have it puke out on me in the middle of a show. I currently own the L-1 B2 system with a t-1, the F-1, and S-1. but I use the L-1 the most for playing out, Please advise, Thanks !!

Hi jimv,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.  Welcome.

How long have you had your L1 system?

Under normal circumstances, there should not be a strong burnt electrical smell. When the unit is new, there may be some off-gassing when the unit is new.

I can't speak specifically for about the SKB case.  However, I have found some cases have some off-gassing when new.  I would leave the case open outdoors for a day to air it out.

If you've run the L1 system for more than a few hours of operation and you experience a strong burnt electrical smell, please call Bose Support.

my shows vary from 3 to 4 hours and I usually play 3 more songs if the crowd is having fun. the case did not have the smell when i bought it. I noticed the unit getting pretty warm too when i shut it down after the show,  I purchased the system on 3-19-2015, L-i, B-2 and T-1

Hi jimv,

Please check the vent inside the power stand handle and the vents on the bottom of the unit. Make sure these are clear of dust or other obstructions. I go over these with a vacuum cleaner occasionally.

When you set up the unit, place it directly on a hard surface. If you put it on a carpet, the unit may sink down into the pile and block the ventilation.

If the vents are clear and unobstructed and you have a burnt electrical smell, please call Bose Support. They may have some more suggestions.
