Hey!

As a follow up from my recent problems with my L1 Model 1 (thanks to ST for pointing in the right direction for a fix) I'm looking at sourcing a second unit to re-enforce my sound and as a backup.

Here in the UK s/h values (all I can afford for now) between a L1 Model 1 and F1 is not that great  -  £800 v £1000 roughly.

I'm a solo performer using loops and home made backings but heavy type stuff rock & punk etc.  I'd sometimes like to push the volume more or at least have that option.

Am I right in thinking the F1 would give me this?  

How successful would a L1 and F1 be together, if at all?

How would a solo F1 compare to a solo L1 (as I have now)?

Has anyone made the transition and what were the major differences?

Sorry, there's a few different areas covered in this question.

I've done a fair bit of searching but nothing to confirm things for me, one way or another.

Many many thanks for any help in advance.

 

Cheers.

Please tell us about the places where you perform.

  • Type of venue (pub, night club with dance floor, a concert with attentive listeners, or ....)
  • Number of people in the audience
  • What are people doing while you perform

I'd like to understand your situation (size of the room, background noise, audience involvement in what you're doing, the requirement that you be heard clearly everywhere).

I'd sometimes like to push the volume more or at least have that option.

What's driving the need for more volume?





Am I right in thinking the F1 would give me this?  

The F1 Model 812 is louder up directly in front of the stage and you would notice the difference on a dance floor.



How successful would a L1 and F1 be together, if at all?

Yes, you can use them together. How you would approach that depends on the answers to my questions above.



How would a solo F1 compare to a solo L1 (as I have now)?

The F1 Model 812 compared to an L1

  • Louder up close
  • More focussed horizontal dispersion (100 degrees compared to 180 degrees)
  • Volume level drops off faster over distance


Has anyone made the transition and what were the major differences?

I have both and use the unit that suits the venue and the application. If I need to motivate people on a dance floor, the F1 Model 812 can be a better choice. If need wide even dispersion, I use the L1

Please tell us more about what you are doing, and let's keep talking.

Thanks,

ST
