I perform at a venue that supplies an L1 Compact (with no mixer). It's a trio gig. The venue also supplies a seperate 25w bass amp (the overall mix is terrible). I own a L1 ll with tonematch and have much experience with it.
I decided to connect my tonematch to it (ch 2, line out) with mic, keyboard and bass. It sounds beautiful. But when the music director saw it, he freaked out about the bass saying "You'll blow the tweeters!" I explained that there was a crossover frequency at 400hz (which he didn't understand) and I checked with the owners manual and Bose forums before I did it. I also mentioned that the keyboard (88 keys) plays lower that the bass but he said "thats different". I tried to explain what really blows speakers (too much trim, but he cut me off)
My settings: for channel 2 is 12 o'clock, line out. The trim for each instrument on the Tonematch is set so that nothing goes to yellow, the channel volumes at 12 0'clock, master at 12 o'clock.
1. I'm I right about in my assumptions?
2. Can I get something "offical" from Bose indicating that bass can be used with the L1 Compact?
