I bought the S1 for a monitor off of my L1 to reach areas the tower cannot. I have 2 gigs that require it. One is a gig in the summertime where we play inside an airconditioned Inn but they want sound pumped out to a deck where people are also sitting. We run a line out from the L1 to the S1 on a tripod. The 2nd gig is where we again play inside and directly behind us is an area with picnic tables. We again put the S1 on a tripod and now have 360-degree coverage.
Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. I'm glad you're here.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us. What model L1 do you have?
