Firstly, Happy New Year fellow Bose users.
I did a fab gig last night in a village hall with around 160 people who kept the dance floor busy all night.
I was using my L1 Model 2 with the B2 and had it set on stage with me about 8-feet back and to the side as shown in the picture below.
The T1 was set as follows:
Channel 1, mic, trim at 1 o'clock and volume at around 12 0'clock.
Channel 2, guitar, trim at 3 o'clock and volume at 2 o'clock.
Channel 4/5, trim at 12 o'clock and volume at 10 o'clock.
The master volume on the T1 was at the 12 o'clock position which is where I usually start and most of the time I seldom have to go past that setting.
Last night being New Years Eve the audience were in party mood and as they became more energetic I started to increase the master volume to around 2 o'clock and this presented some pretty serious feedback issues.
Could this be an EQ issue or was it just that the position of the L1 to mic ratio was at its maximum tolerance level, I'd estimate the distance between mic and column was about 8/9 feet.
After the gig I kept wondering if it would be better at those bigger venues to place the L1 right at the front of the stage and set my S1 as a monitor but if I do this how would I connect the monitor because last time I tried I came from the master out on the T1 and it cut the main PA out!
Do I come from the AUX and if so how do I route the signal from all channels to the AUX to give me a monitor mix without affecting Front of House?
