We've found that anyone who may have inserted the lower L1 improperly upside-down may damage the connector inside the PS1-L1 "nest". If you think that you may have done this, then please look at the connector on the PS1 and check that it's fully seated. A simple light push down with your thumb to the connector will verify that it's seated correctly. The second thing that can be checked (and something that we recently became aware of) is little silver metal plate that sticks out of the lower L1. Check the two screws to ensure that they are properly seated also. What makes me think that it's a connection issue is for the circumstances where the B1 is heard but none of the L1 is heard. We'll continue to watch and investigate this situation. Maybe pics of what I'm talking about may help too?
Yeah, pics would DEFINITELY help, as the terminology is confusing, especially for us newbies. As for putting the lower L1 in upside-down, it's not hard to do, as the two sides don't look that different (again, esp. when new). It may behoove Bose to clearly mark somehow, which side goes down....
Another suggestion, is to include perhaps a wide velcro strap (or pair) that either attaches, or is already attached to the bag(s) for the L1s. I haul my equipment on a good sized "rock n roller" rack, and with various bags (especially now, with the addition of the odd-sized base), mic stands, & cases, the two narrow, long L1s are very awkward to fit on/within all this. Even though I use bungee cords to hold everything on, I've almost had one fall off already. If they were bound together, it would greatly help both broaden & balance them.
I'm going to find some velcro straps and do a do-it-yourself fix, but it would be a nice feature for the bags to have them already sewn on.....
