I am looking for advice/direction on improving upon my live performance audio. I do not play outside my home. I have a large sunken living room that rectangular in shape and merges with a family room, Dining room and kitchen; approx. 70' by 25'. My current audio includes a pair of 8" Yamaha monitors, a KRK sub, soundcraft mixer. I have a new Moog One, a Roland handsonic, a VoiceLive Extreme for vocals and guitar effects. I can either play guitar thru some vintage Fender Amps or thru the Voicelive for effects.. I do not record or produce, only live jamming with the boys. I'm thinking that a PA would be better suited for this purpose. I have another use in a vacation home for the Yamaha and Sub and mixer, so nothing would be a loss.. Cannot decide if I should just upgrade the monitors to something more musical or suited for live performance or get the Bose Compact, L1 Classic, L1 Model 1 or 2... also, would 2 compacts provide better separation?? Any opinions would be appreciated...
What genre of music would you be jamming to? What instruments?
My suggestion would be a pair of Bose S1 Pro speakers...
They sound great and should cover your living area well
They have Bluetooth on board to facilitate audio streaming from your devices
Battery powered so you can take them out on your deck
Lightweight for easy transport
Small size should fit in well with a home living area
They just sound great!
