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.
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.
