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 searched high & low for specs of the horizontal coverage of the S1 Pro but couldn't find any authentic information re the same ... even in the S1 Manual. Could anyone throw some more light on this?

I was considering picking up this Dual Speaker Mount Bracket to hold two S1's ... but just wondering if the proximity of the two S1's on this adapter would cancel out some frequencies of each other thereby muddying the overall sound.

Any thoughts??

Looks pretty cool to me. Should hold the weight of 2 S1s. One thing I’d worry about would be feedback. Perhaps pointing them in slightly opposite directions would help and they may be far enough apart for feedback not to occur. But as a prior poster said, at $17 it’s worth a shot. 

If you do get one, would love to hear what you thought of it. I like using the S1 on a speaker pole and when I get a second one, this sure would be nice to keep the stage setup nice and tidy.

The stand works nice for holding the speakers, however still experimenting with the actual use. For $17.00 it's worth your shot probably. 

I'd seen something similar some 4 months back, & have been contemplating ever since ... but haven't dived in as yet. However, it's usage would be primarily for horizontally wide rooms, so the speakers can be angled in opposing directions.

In a long-ish hall the 2nd speaker would have to be placed somewhere midway down the hall as a delay speaker.

Like you mentioned ... for $17, it's surely worth a shot.

You've nailed it !! ... Keeping the stage neat & tidy is what I'm after ... a smaller footprint! 

For mic'ing, I too am afraid of feedback issues due to the proximity of the speakers on this bracket.

As I mentioned above, it's usage would be primarily for horizontally wide rooms, so the speakers can be angled in opposing directions (as specified by you too). Nevertheless, still wondering if the 100 degree horizontal coverage would impair the sound intelligibility ...

In a long-ish hall the 2nd speaker would have to be placed somewhere midway down the hall as a delay speaker.

Musing!

I think what was being asked in the original post was if there are two S1’s that close together, will they cancel sound out because of the overlapping sound waves.

In other words, will it sound worse because the two speakers are too close together. It’s called phasing. My thoughts would be that as long as the speakers are not facing the same direction, they should be okay.

Yeah djharryg ... It's the "phasing" issue I'm worried about. But with a 120 degree angle of horizontal coverage, I'd have to turn them pretty much away from each other ... Wondering if anyone has some further technical information to share as to how much each speaker has to be turned away from each other ... or if there's any minimum distance they need to be apart from each other to mitigate or alleviate such issues.

I understood what you were saying.  ha ha.  Everyone else was more interested in the cool dual speaker mount you found.  (which I own but have not used).

Ha ha

Besides me being a DJ primarily, I also sing from time to time on karaoke tracks at functions. So wanted everyone's take on this as to the feedback and possible phasing issues due to the proximity. Still collecting info & watching this thread.

Save your money. Began gig this afternoon with both S1's mounted on the stand adapter. Had feedback issues, even after dialing it all back, and adjusting EQ. Two vocals behind and closest about 4 feet, plus pole vertical height. First break, removed speakers, mounted one on pole in single, moved other to floor, tip back about 8 feet away. Solved feedback issues. Still had crowd bleed into one mic, other was a headset that was okay. Very noisy bar and restaurant with about 100 people. Bottom line, save your money.
