one thing i have always noticed even in conventional systems when i have played out.
In the beginning of the evening, when things are somewhat quieter, i am always able to get a nice tone from my vocal and my guitar.
Now with the bose, it is even better. However, i have always noticed that things that sound good at lower levels, often run into problems when having to elevate the volume.
The best i have been able to do in the past, as the night gets louder and i am forced to turn up a bit, is to start cuting eq to deal with the reflections etc in normal bar sized ugly rooms.
this solves usually the fedback problems, albeit at what i consider a terrible sacrifice in tone. I have always found tone an easy thing to get at lower volumes, but extremeley difficult at higher volumes, to retain the quality. Can anyone offer me any suggestions of things besides eq that i might try to get more volume and retain a little more tonal quality?
just seems even with the bose, when i start getting to a specific point in volume when i cut the frequency(s) that is causeing me problems, i also lose the tone associated with those frequencies.
my problem is not so much with my vocals as my voice is strong. but more so with my accoustic guitar. any advice would be welcome.
accoustic treatment is out of the question for most of these places( at least major treatment). and alot of these little type pub bars ( 100 or so people) dont allow much room to get away from the tower. sometimes only a couple feet.
I would be very interested in what volumes people are using the system at. basic like bose settings on master, trim, and remote volume, and pas trim setting, and in what size venues and how far away they are from the tower.
also when at what settings and levels etc are they starting to have feedback problems, or maybe tone issues as i.
one of my problems with the accoutic is i get a great sound at a reasonable level, and nice botom from the sub. but as i increase volume, i ned to cut back on the bass, and i start losing all the nice warmth.
so far from my gigs and experiments, the bose does great at moderate volumes in moderately decent rooms. I also think it has plenty of power, but harnessing it when one gets loud can be a challenge.
again i think the bose is doing a better job than conventional systems i have used, but just would like to be able to keep the full sound at not ear piercing, but louder volumes when needed. thanks all for any feedback.i was going to start a new topic, but the menu wouldnt let me. thanks all.
if specific notch filters would help outside of an 31 band eq. perhaps they could be put into some presets. even though all rooms are different, maybe some are enough of the same problem with some experimenting, we could maybe find specific problem frequencies to pull without affecting tone as much...
