Hello,I have a qustion regarding an upcoming outdoor gig and would appreciate any input?
Great questions. I'm glad you asked. Have you done any shows outdoors with your L1® yet?
This will be a rather large (600-800) picnic at a farmground.I'm not sure yet if there will be a small stage or just setting up on the grass.
I use the L1 Sys2 B2. What I'm thinking of doing is:
Set up the sytem behind me (say 12') and then run a pair of speakers in front of me,one on the left and one on the right.I believe I'll have enough volume and the Bose can act as my monitor also.
Please tell us about your show. If I remember correctly, you do a solo, acoustic oriented show: You and a guitar.
For a picnic, you might be fine with just the L1® with your B2. I've done events for 800 in a quiet park.
We had a couple of L1®s on the stage, but we never used two for any one sound source. So setup was probably similar to yours.
I think I can use the Master out to run the 2 speakers?
Is the master out Stereo?Balanced?And do I use Active or Passive Speakers?
The T1® Master Output is balanced, mono.
You need active loudspeakers (or an amplifier and passive loudspeakers).
Also,in between sets I'd like to keep the music going with my iphone or ipad. Should I connect the Iphone/ipad to one of the channels on the T1 or to the analog input on the Bose platform?
The T1® Channels 4/5 are designed to take a stereo output from a device like your iPhone or iPad. That's simplest. You can connect directly to the Model II Power Stand Analog input, but you have to set your iPad or iPhone to mono. Then you can use a 1/8" stereo to two 1/4" mono cable. Use only one of the 1/4" connections to the L1®.
I would greatly appreciate any input.
Steve, if you add two powered speakers to your setup, they would have to be very loud to project farther than an L1® Model II. The L1® might not be as loud close to the stage, but it will project surprisingly far.
If you can try your L1® outside, run some tracks through it from your iPod. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the result. And it might put your mind at ease about bringing more speakers to the gig.
Does the help?
