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.

Looking for recommendations or experience on using a wireless transmitter/receiver with two S1 pro speakers, hoping to use them for wedding ceremonys or remote fill speakers. A little worried about the reliability of wireless.  Thanks!

Hi again,

There are some considerations with the S1 Pro system because it is so portable.

You may be looking for

  • A battery powered receiver (the part that goes into the S1 Pro system input).
  • A battery powered transmitter. If you want to replace the wire that you use to daisy chain two S1 Pro systems, the transmitter would take the signal from S1 Pro Line Out and transmit that to the receiver on the second S1 Pro system.

Bluetooth is great for sending prerecorded music from a Bluetooth enabled device (computer, tablet, phone) to your S1 Pro system, however if there is a visual aspect (video or live performance or you are linking loudspeakers together), the latency with Bluetooth is too high for those applications.

Bluetooth transmitter solution - for T1 to S1 Pro


Thanks for the info... more specifically looking for ideas to go from a mixer out to wireless transmitter to wireless receiver (battery powered) into Bose s1 pro. Alto stealth wireless for speakers is the type of system I'm thinking of, but recevers are not battery powered. Or, perhaps a Bluetooth transmitter that would connect to mixer out and then pair to the s1 pro Bluetooth. 


Hi Harry

Thanks for bringing this topic up. WIRELESS transmission.

I play what we in Denmark call dinner music.

Groups: up to 120 people.

My setup is:

Piano - Tone match4 - Compact L1 cabled - Wireless to second Compact L1.

Currently I use a XVive U2 (which is made for instruments) between the first and second Compact L1.

It works, but from time to time the quality is too poor because of too much electronic noise in the room I think.

Wonder if anyone has any wireless transmission experience.







Thread Update: Wireless Solution for Pair of S1 Pros...

Ran a pair of S1 Pros in conjunction with the Xvive U3 Wireless Transmitter / Receiver pair last thursday 3/28/2019, setup as follows...

Bose T1 Mixer main out (1/4" to 1/4" TRS cable) >

> To: speaker 1 S1 Pro channel 1 input, settings =  tonematch off, reverb off, bass and treble at 12:00, volume at 12:00

> Speaker 1 S1 Pro line out, Male TRS to Male XLR patch cable

>To: Xvive U3 Transmitter (taped to back of speaker 1) Xvive U3 set to Line -10dB and channel 6 on the unit

>Wireless To Speaker 2: Xvive U3 Receiver plugged in directly to channel 1 on speaker 2.  settings =  tonematch off, reverb off, bass and treble at 12:00, volume at 12:00

Summary: This venue (UGM Theater) seats around 100-150 (or so), there was lots of WI-FI in the venue that is adjacent to the business offices.

The S1 Pro speakers were about 40 -50 feet apart with good line of sight.

Speaker 1 was wired as a fail safe in case of failure

speaker 2 was fully wireless

Both S1 Pro speakers and the Xvive U3 Wireless Transmitter / Receiver pair were on battery, no AC in use (except T1 mixer)

Result: zero dropouts or noise, clear signal, could not distinguish a difference between the wired and wireless speaker, very satisfied and impressed with performance of the S1 Pros in conjunction with Xvive U3 set.

Xvive U3 Specs:
