Discussions about the new Bose S1 Pro

Bose S1 Pro

Designed for musicians, DJs and general PA use, the S1 Pro is the ultimate all-in-one PA, floor monitor and practice amplifier that's ready to be your go-anywhere Bluetooth music system for nearly any occasion. 

This is the place to discuss the S1 Pro system.

Using the S1 Pro with Bose Connect App

I stumbled upon a YouTube video uploaded by Bose Professional showcasing the S1 and at the end the guy demonstrates using the S1 with the mobile Bose Connect app for mono or stereo Bluetooth streaming. I cannot find my S1s using the app and the S1 isn’t even listed as a supported device within the app. Has anyone seen this and figured it out?

Here’s a link to the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/C1NaRpSrxLA

I found a fellow user who asked the same question JB about the Bose Connect App, and if you don't click the link which was answered by a Bose community manager, the feature set described by you and the video, will be included in a firmware update released at a TBD time in the future.  You can of course see one of the earlier posts yourself at the following link:

Thank you, I guess I missed that topic!

No worries friend - I always worry about posting links and messages like that because I don't want to appear to be one of those eye-rollers.  I actually missed the Bose Connect integration in the video, so I was incredibly curious after I saw your message as I had not seen the others originally either.  I flipped through the (albeit brief) manual cover to cover, seeing scant reference to setup in there, and then happened upon the post above.  Hopefully the feature set will be implemented soon, and now I wonder what "party" mode is!

I have notifications set to show new threads etc. and I literally have missed it due is all being bombarded by the free backpack thread I’m sure lol. So again thank you!

It was also nice to see the auto EQ diagrams to get an idea of what is changed in the different positions. It made me sad the one I’m concerned about the most wasn’t shown, tripod mode 😔.

Im assuming party mode is just the fancy way of saying two Bluetooth speakers can stream at the same time like JBL and their line of Bluetooth speakers

 

Hi jbarner20,

Let's have a party. Two ways 

Two S1 Pro systems playing mono (left and right summed to mono)

OR

Two S1 Pro systems, one playing left, one playing right.

EDIT - PS - these screen shots are from a new version of the Bose Connect app - coming soon.

Hi ST.  This thread is a little confusing.  I have the Bose Connect App, and it does not include any party mode or reference to S1's.  Are you showing us proto type screens above of a new app to be released?  Will there be a firmware update needed to accomplish streaming to a stereo pair of S1's?

Hi John,

There will be an update to the Bose Connect app soon and this will add the screens I showed in my post above.  Yes, you will probably need to update the firmware in the S1 Pro you got without the battery. The one that came with the battery included my not need the firmware update.

When the firmware update is available, you'll need a USB cable. We'll publish instructions soon. 

Does that help?

Hi ST,

thanks for the updates.  What will usIng this app allow us to do that we can’t already do with our standard Bluetooth connection?  



You will be able to have two S1 Pro systems playing Bluetooth from a single Bluetooth device. That Bluetooth device must be running the Bose Connect App (IOS or Android). 

You can choose between running both S1 Pro systems running mono (Left plus Right mixed down to mono) or have one S1 Pro playing the Left side of the stereo signal and the other S1 Pro playing the Right side of the stereo signal.

Without the Bose Connect app, you can connect only one S1 Pro to a sound source.

Will this replicate what connecting two S1Pros with a cable currently does? I use backing tracks and a wireless mic, so will connecting the two units with the app project from channel 3 (bluetooth) *AND* channels 1/2? Or, is this simply for bluetooth playback only?

Thanks for your help and clarification.

Bluetooth only.



Thanks for your help and clarification.

The big feature is being able to play music from a device running the Bose Connect App to two S1 Pros. It does not affect S1 Pro channels 1 and 2.

I apologise if this info is already out there but I had some difficulty finding how to pair two Bose S1 Pros through the Bose Connect App. Have a Type A to C USB lead ready (I think the Bose is a Type C)

This is how it's done and it now works great on my two speakers:

The S1 Pro was released before the Connect App functionality was added.  I'd recommend updating the S1 Pro before attempting the connection with the Connect App.  Here are the steps to update the system:

  • The S1 Pro MUST be connected to a working power outlet
  • On your computer, open a web browser and go to btu.bose.com. Keep your web browser open throughout this process
  • Review the Bose Updater terms of use, then click "Accept and Continue" if you'd like to run the updater
  • Click "Download" to download the updater
  • If the web browser gives download options, choose "Run." Otherwise, once the file is downloaded, open it and install the updater
  • Connect a USB cable from the computer to the SERVICE jack on your product
  • Click "Apply Changes." (Note: If no update is available, the updater shows your product is up to date)
  • Once the system has been successfully updated, disconnect your product from the computer

Good luck

Is it "just me", but doesn't it seem very reasonable to think this Bose Connect App with the S1 Pro COULD provide Volume, Bass, Treble, Reverb, and the Tonematch Switch for each channel?  In other words - everything that is on the panel, make it available on the app?
And while they're having a good time - Channel & Master Mutes, Master Volume, maybe Line-Out Volume.. ..
NOT asking for wireless connect for instrument input, just the same controls that are THERE (plus a few that SHOULD be there)..
Come ON Bose - help a musician out!
Just thinkin aloud..  MIKE O'
