Hi guys, just a quick question. I am looking to downgrade from my big rig that i use to 4x Bose L1 Model II with B2 Bass Module. I have currently brought one to see how my band gets on with it in rehearsals. so far they all really like it.
Thanks for the background information.
But I also own an Allan and heath QU32 digital mixing desk followed by 2 Allan and Heath AB168 stage boxes to give me full 32 channels on stage via cat 5 cable.
For future reference: I found this information about the
Is it possible to connect the 4x Bose system to the outputs of the stage boxes and route the 4 output channels to main LR master channel.
This really sounds like a QU-32 question rather than an L1® question. At a glance through the Allen & Heath documents, it looks like this should be possible.
so i wont have to use the monitor channels to set individual mixes and just have one master mix which the band and crowd will both hear.
Let me encourage you to create four separate mixes and treat your stage as four zones with a mix for each zone.
Check out this video The L1® Approach and the History of Amplification.
You see that the original design intent was for each musician to have his own L1® (and own individual mix). There are a lot of advantages to this and I think that with the Allen & Heath gear you've got, you'll be able to realize all of them.
the band i do sound for is an indie rock band and we are out most weekends giging so im hoping the bose system will save us a lot of time in setting up and taking down. Thanks.
The L1®s are a dream set up and take down. It goes a lot faster if you have four people, and each of them takes the responsibility for setting up (a couple of minutes each, tops). Do that in parallel and it's fast.
