What do the red lights mean - on the L1® Compact

This is a question for the Bose Engineers.

Can you tell us about how best to interpret the Signal/Clip indicators on the Compact. I would like to add information about this in the wiki. You can see the kind of information we have for the other L1® models below.

Also - can you describe what happens when the Compact is running at full-out. That is, is it going to audibly clip, compress or something else.

Thanks!

We have the following information about the Classic/Model I
What do the LEDs mean
Red = about 10 dB before clipping

And the T1®
T1® Input Trim
Yellow = 8-10 dB "of headroom left"
Red = If the T1 trim is going red, you should back off, you are definitely nearing or in compression.

For both Ch 1 & 2 the Red LED indicates that the Limiter is being activated.
Blinking red signifies that you are achieving maximum useable audio output
Solid red indicates that the system is clipping and volume should be reduced

The L1 Compact Limiters are set to allow some audible clipping to enable a performer to hear when the unit is topped out and have a better feel for its max. output range.
