Discussions about the Bose S1 Pro system

Bose S1 Pro

Designed for musicians, DJs and general PA use, the S1 Pro is the ultimate all-in-one PA, floor monitor and practice amplifier that's ready to be your go-anywhere Bluetooth music system for nearly any occasion. 

This is the place to discuss the S1 Pro system.

I read some comments (maybe another post or even another forum) that raising the bass and treble will have the same affect as cutting the mid frequencies.   Would that work?  

Also, I see on one of the pictures in the technical information which shows the bass rolled back to about 9:00 on the vocal channel.  Is this a suggested setting?

Hi Marty,

I wouldn't say that raising the bass and treble will have the same affect as reducing mids, but it will have a similar effect. If you are running at or near the feedback threshold, raising bass and treble is likely to require a slight reduction at the volume control.

The tone controls affect a much wider range than just the frequency that is shown. The more you cut or boost, (the farther from center you turn the knob) the wider the range of frequencies affected.

You really have to depend on your ear to tell you when you like what you are hearing. Start with the controls in the center and the appropriate preset engaged. Adjust to suit using small increments.

Sometimes what suits a person depends on what they have listened to before. Bose is recognized for vocal clarity, and if you are not used to hearing yourself that way it can be a little disconcerting in the beginning. With the preset engaged and the tone controls centered, most mics will provide you with a sound that is near natural for your voice. Usually small incremental adjustments will make the enhancements you need for personal satisfaction. Remember, the knobs turn both ways. 

Keep tinkering, what you are looking for is in there.

O..

I probably wrote the post you mentioned. If it's the one I remember, Michael wanted to adjust the mid frequencies.  EQ for Wireless Mic

Hi Michael M,

Have you tried?

  • Change the position of the ToneMatch switch (Off, MIC, GUITAR)
  • Change the bass/treble controls
    • More midrange: turn down bass/treble
    • Less midrange: turn up bass/treble

For subtle changes to the mid range, yes.  For more precise control of all of the frequencies, use a ToneMatch Mixer. Oldghm has done a great job describing the nuances in his post above.

No, that is not a suggested setting.

The subject that picture was the volume settings on channels 1 and 2

I'm sorry if the other settings have clouded the issue.  The picture has now been updated to this.
