Discussions about the Bose S1 Pro system

Bose S1 Pro

Designed for musicians, DJs and general PA use, the S1 Pro is the ultimate all-in-one PA, floor monitor and practice amplifier that's ready to be your go-anywhere Bluetooth music system for nearly any occasion. 

This is the place to discuss the S1 Pro system.

Is it intended behavior for the Bose S1 Pro to output no signal until the volume knob gets to about 1-1.5?  Just bought one and while streaming music over Bluetooth this is very apparent.  Set the Bose volume knob for Channel 3 (BT) to zero and slowly turn up then around 1.5 the signal suddenly kicks in.  Not smooth at all.  Tested the same thing on Channel 1 with a mic and it seems to be less pronounced by still a noticeably abrupt transition from no signal to HELLO SOUND!

Hi Beau Ryan,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Congratulations on getting your S1 Pro.

Yes, the behaviour of Channel 3 volume control is different from Channels 1 and 2. 

On channel 3, the volume control is digital and the resolution of the control is not as high as the other channels so the transition from zero to Hello Sound is not as smooth.  For pictures and more information please see: S1 Pro Channel 3

From your description, your system is working fine.

I'm glad you joined us.
