Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community.
I'm new to the forum and L1 products. I need a speaker system that allows me to use my home stereo amplifier with CD and Karaoke components, video to TV,
It's easy to connect your home stereo amplifier or Karaoke components or TV (if it has RCA outputs) to
- S1 Pro system
- L1 Compact
to include acoustic/electric guitar and vocals.
With either the S1 Pro or L1 Compact you can also add up to
- One microphone
- One instrument (e.g., electric guitar)
Can anyone help me match the correct Bose L1 system? Use would be in the home and on the deck for outside entertainment.
Which one: S1 Pro or L1 Compact. That will depend on the size of your room inside and the deck outside, and the style of music you're playing.
If you want to run more than one source at a time (stereo, TV, Karaoke) or two or more vocal microphones you will want a T4S or T8S ToneMatch mixer. The choice will depend on the total number of inputs you will be running at the same time.
Do you want to hear the music sources (stereo, TV, Karaoke) in stereo? If so, you'll need two S1 Pro systems or two L1 Compact systems.
If you'd like to run on built-in rechargeable batteries, then you should get one or two S1 Pro systems. With two S1 Pro systems you can run in stereo and support up to four inputs (any combination of microphones and guitars).
Does that help?
