L1 Model II

Let's talk about the L1® Portable Line Array Systems

Using proprietary Bose® technology, L1 systems combine  PA and monitors into a single, highly portable unit. The  loudspeaker can be positioned behind or to the side —and you hear what the audience hears.

Highly portable PA and monitor combined for solo performers, DJs and general-purpose use. Fixed vertical control with 180° horizontal coverage Reduced vulnerability to feedback.

Three systems to choose from (Compact, Model 1S, Model II)
Two passive bass module options (B1 or B2)
Consistent coverage and tonal balance, portability and easy setup.

L1 Model II with AX8 and Boss RC300 Best Preset.

I have used the Model II for years. I also own a Compact. T1 effects are good but after one too many Youtube videos I was sold on a Fractal AX8 modeler. Currently I plug into the AX8 then to a Boss Looper then to the T1. I am playing solo on a Taylor jumbo equipped with a Baggs M1 passive. I want to loop different parts with contrasting acoustic tones from the AX8. 

 First question: I am not really sure which preset would be appropriate for FRFR modeling. Nothing in the manual really explains the purpose of, or difference between the presets: Line 6 POD, General Direct, General Processor, Flat E Guitar or the Flat Utility. Which would be appropriate for FRFR output? I play electric as well sometimes.

Next question: I really like my basic acoustic sound from both the T1  Baggs preset and weirdly the Strat preset. I hate to lose them, I just want more effects from the AX8. So I want to duplicate those presets if possible in the AX8 if I am going to a FRFR T1 preset. Is there any info on specs for the T1 presets EQ etc. that could give me a clue how to dial in the AX8?

Hi Arnieus,

Nice to see you again.

Sounds like a great rig.

We've got an article for you that details the differences.

I'm sorry, Bose has not published the details of the T1 Presets. You'll have to do this on your own.

Hi Arnieus,

ST Thanks for the quick reply and reference. I had not run across that article.

I just wrote it.

I knew T1 preset details was a long shot. I am getting great results.  

That's terrific news. My favourite guitar rig is the Kemper Profiling Amp with a ToneMatch mixer through to my L1® Compact or L1 Model II (depending on the size of the venue).

Hey thanks again. Nobody ever wrote an article just for me before. Utility Flat seems to be the way to go. Been wondering about those T1 presets for years. Didn't need them with a dedicated Baggs T1 preset. 

I am really a newby when it comes to modeling. The Kemper looks beautiful and complicated. When I started playing guitar you didn't have to be all that smart. Now days you have to be sober to keep up. The AX8 would be impossible with out the great software that configures it.
