Discussions about the Bose S1 Pro system

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.

Andy has the best answer, but to be blunt, the S1 does not provide phantom power in its input channels.

Perhaps you could provide a better idea as to what instrument/vocal inputs you require?

While a mixer is a great suggestion, there are individual phantom power units you can plug your mic into and go from there into the S1 if you just need to power a single mic. They aren’t that expensive. I saw one on Amazon for $18. Just another option to consider if a mixer is overkill. One downside is that these individual units will require electric power. 

If you are considering a mixer, several folks on this forum have been happy with the Behringer 1002B which can run on power and battery and has phantom power.

Hi VA,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. This is a great question.

Hello everyone , 

I am deciding to get the new S1 Pro speaker but wonder if  I can use phantom microphones with it.

The S1 Pro system does not provide phantom power. As others have mentioned above, there are other ways to get phantom power.

Any suggestion, reply would be appreciated. 

My main microphone is a Neumann KMS 105. It requires phantom power and it sounds terrific when I use it with any of the Bose ToneMatch mixers (they all have phantom power).

However, I have had great results using various dynamic microphones with my S1 Pro system.  Shure SM58, Shure Beta 58, Audix OM3b (similar to OM5), Electrovoice ND767A.

The S1 Pro has a ToneMatch Preset for vocal microphones. It works really well with dynamic microphones.


Have a great day

Try a dynamic microphone with the S1 Pro. You might be pleasantly surprised. I was.

Thanks everyone for  all the great responses.  I think I will go ahead and get the speakers and use dynamic mics for vocal   according to all the  very positive suggestions here. I think I have a Shure 58 hidden somewhere in the studio.

Again,  really appreciated all the help  given.  Great forums . 

BTW,  a picture means a thousand words, thanks ST,  that picture with notation really help me made my decision to order the S1 



If you already have a SM 58 so much the better. That mic with the mic ToneMatch setting should sound great. Very good feedback resistance with that mic too. Having a  dynamic mic will just make your setup simpler.

We couldn’t be happier with our S1. With its quality of sound and battery power, we find more and more applications for it.
