S1 Pro Firmware Update 7.1.5 January 2020

ST
Hi Everybody, There is a new firmware version: 7.1.5 If you use the Bose Connect app, it will download the firmware update and notify you when it is ready to update your S1 Pro. It's much faster if you use a computer to connect to the Bose site and do the update with a Bluetooth cable. Please see the link below for details. S1 Pro System Updates Release Notes Supports power-saving features Optimizes battery performance These changes above do not address the issue " S1 Pro battery draining...Read More...
That’s all I’m asking ST. I don’t expect any trade secrets to be divulged or how it was implemented in underlying code. Having new security features to prevent intercepting a BT connection is much more informative than an overly broad based description of simply noting “security improvements”. Thanks for clarifying.Read More...

Connecting Two L1 System 2 together for a Duo

I'm looking to purchase 2 Bose S1's with the intent of running a wireless PA system, but have a few questions first (but from what I have researched think that this is possible).... I just need confirmation it s indeed possible to setup as per below: 1. Run my first Bose system with a wireless Sennheiser XSW-D micreceiver into my first S1 speaker mic in, and also a wireless XSW-D guitar instrument receiver into guitar in. 2. Use the Bluetooth function to stream my IPod to this first speaker...Read More...
Hi Adam ... Thx for sharing your experience. Are you using the XSW-D wireless connections to output the signal from your Tonematch to the S1's? ..or.. from your Guitar to the S1's? I'm basically interested if you're using the XSW-D wireless connections to run "Mixer-to-S1" wirelessly.Read More...

Selection of a Mixer

I own 2 L1 compacts and am interested in using them in stereo. I need to determine which mixer to secure. I’ve considered both the Behringer xr12 and Bose T8S. Could you share the strengths/weaknesses or both? Or share a different recommendation. The cost is a factor. Thanks much.Read More...
Hi, pjlloyd2, Do you have a T1 now? The T1 is a mono device, so you would run all your inputs to the T1, connect the T1 to the first L1 Compact, See this article for details T1 to L1 Compact And then daisy-chain the first L1 Compact to the second L1 Compact. See this article for details L1 Compact Daisy Chain If you don't have a T1 but are considering one, you might be happier with a T4S because then you can maintain the stereo image of your keyboard(s).

SoundTouch® Wireless Link adapter

Any active speaker of any make can accept a signal from this device via Aux out. The MAA2-AW from Appaudio streams audio from line level audio sources to smart phones and tablets over Wi-Fi. Does Bose have anything that can do something similar? I'm thinking Bose earphones connected to a smartphone at a live venue for example.Read More...
Hi, Uncle John, Thanks for coming back to tell us you found a solution for your requirements. Cheers, STRead More...

T4S with two L1 Classic systems

I have dual L1 classic system with B1s and this information is very helpful. I always wondered why after connecting 3 vocal mics to my tonematch mixer t4s was susceptible to feedback more than connecting single MIC. I have never used both my L1 systems simultaneously. I use it for small parties and cultural gatherings where people come and perform , like a annual school ay event where the programs vary a great deal eg: skit, solo singing , group singing , string + bass + vocal performers at...Read More...

S1 Pro line out and to Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Evening all, I would like to use my S1 Pro's line out and connect it into my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge android phone to record what is going through the S1 (guitar and vocals) onto the phome's vouce recorder. I have recorded myself playing just using the phone's internal mic and had fairly decent results but hope/think I may get even better results if I do the above... Any advice would be most gratefully received! Will this work? Exactly what kind of cable I should use? I am confused by all the...Read More...

Screech/Squeal

Hi. Newbie to the forum here. I recently purchased an L1 mode2 with two B1 units. We have used the PA in rehearsal with no issue. However last night we played out and we were getting a strange screech. All eight channels on our ToneMatch are being used. Four for vocals. Two for acoustic guitars. One for bass guitar, and one for recorded back tracks (drums/keys/etc.). This screech I am talking about is NOT feedback. It only occurred when vocal harmonies were happening. And at that it was only...Read More...
Hi shadow9999, I'm sorry it's got to go back to Bose, but they'll take care of you. Thanks for staying in touch. STRead More...

Setting AKG mic

Good evening, I have a T4S Tonematch mixer and I want to set up one of my AKG mics and I can't. I have one AKG WMS 450 Wireless And one AKG C 1000 S Is it supposed to use a specific preset? How can I use this mic the right way? Please I really need helpRead More...
Hi Cristina I sometimes use my AKG WMS40. I've played with different presets - Vocal/Handheld, Shure SM58 and Shure Beta 58A. I'm not sure which one I prefer (it's been a while since I used my AKG). Try all the Vocal Mics that are listed in the mixer and see which one you like best!Read More...

Yamaha Tyros 4 Keyboard settings for the T1

I'm a one-man-band using a Yamaha Tyros 4 keyboard, through a recently updated T1, and then into a L1,M2,B2 combo. I'm not 100% happy with the sound I'm getting - so, does anybody have recommendations, or have found the right T1 settings for the Tyros 4 keyboard? Thanks!!Read More...
Hi, Limbo. The general approach is to change one thing at a time. We want to stabilize the T1 (now done) and get the best sound we can out of the Tyros 4. Then see if there's more to be done with the T1. Sure - that sounds fine. I'll look forward to hearing from you. STRead More...

Mixer to L1 Compact: RCA or 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) connection?

ST, I believe previously you recommended hooking the mixer to the L1C via the RCA's. Above your going into channel two 1/4" I assume that would be a TRS?. Asboth the 1/4" and RCA are available, which one would you consider appropriate?Read More...
Hi, tomm. Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Thanks for joining the conversation. Yes, L1 Compact Channel 2 supports balanced connections. See page 6 in the L1 Compact Owner's Guide It will accept 1/4 inch (6.3mm) Tip-Sleeve connections - and then the connection will be unbalanced. You mentioned the "S1". As a matter of interest, the 1/4 combo inputs on the S1 Pro are also balanced, but will accept 1/4 inch (6.3mm) Tip-Sleeve connections - and then the connection will be unbalanced. STRead More...

Electric guitar amp simulators plugins-getting the right sound?

Lately I have seen videos on youtube of people using plugins like Neural DSP or Positive Grid bias amp that sound incredible, but they are using studio monitors and not typical PA equipment. I cannot seem to get a good sound that sounds like a real amp. I'm using a focus right Scarlett interface into a Mac, then into a Ts4 mixer which goes into my Bose l1 model S. I was hoping to not have to drag my heavy tube amp to my gigs since I play mostly acoustic. Anyone try using this software into...Read More...
Hi, Carlos de Castro. That's great. It sounds like a little work with the Graphic EQ or some Compression would help. I don't have any specific suggestions for settings, but I might start there. I have the Kemper Profiling Amp (lunchbox) with the foot controller. The Kemper Stage wasn't available a few years ago. I understand the Stage and the lunchbox plus controller are functionally and audibly identical. I've been extremely happy with the combination of the Kemper and the L1 Model II, L1...Read More...

Are my input levels too low - Can you judge anything by what you see?

Hi. I’m relatively new to the Bose system. I’ve got an L1S with a T4S and have been using it for a year, but without any time to delve into its capabilities. Basically, turning it on and flying blind. I’m trying little by little to learn. I’ve been trying to get away with using all of my past experience with conventional PA’s. So, when I first fired up, I adjusted my gains per channel by backing off a bit from red (ch1 is lead vocal, ch2 is back vocal, ch3 is acoustic guitar, ch4 is...Read More...

9 Volt Rechargeable Batteries

PS: If I'm going to be somewhere where I know plugging into mains is not an option, I'll carry a spare set of 3 charged up 9v batteries as spares. Have not had to use them yet. The EBL rechargeable batteries are reliable, the company quite responsive when problems arise (I had one dead charger, one dead battery -- replaced with no fuss or expense) and are quite inexpensive -- comparable to the cost of regular alkaline batteries in the store. I have a collection of 9v and AAA and AA 1.5v and...Read More...

Using B1 with a Different Sound System

I am not very technical and I hope someone helps with me with simple instructions to follow. I own L1 Model II with B2 Bass Module. I currently work in a venue where there's a sounds system in place but it's lacking a subwoofer. The sound system is permanently installed and I am only given access to a sound mixer that is connected to it. Can I use my B2 with a sound system like this? I don't understand how I can get the B2 powered. Any advice would be very much appreciated.Read More...
Thank you, ST, for a very thorough answer. I play recorded music for my freedomDANCE classes, and it's clear that I can either use the whole system (instead or in addition to the house system) or just get a subwoofer to add to the house system. Many, many thanks to you and everyone who took time to respond.Read More...

L1 due for an upgrade?

I was looking to buy L1c however I see bunch of other companies offering similar systems with lot more feature/power and I feel like Bose needs to update their line as well. I would have loved L1c with more bass to play backing track/music at small parties and have EQ/reverb on the system. Any rumors?Read More...
I'm pretty confident Bose is working on things. When and if they release them is another question. I have compacts, s1's, L1m2's and l1m1's. These things rock. I love new features like anyone else. But I give Bose the benefit of the doubt because of their track record. Other fine companies out there, but some promise the world at a lower price and end up letting me down.Read More...

At a loss for requirements

I have one compact that has performed excellently in our small venues (60 to 80 people, small room). We (bass, drum, guitar, tracks to fill in sound) now have opportunity to perform every other month in a large ballroom for 300 give or take. The problem is we can not afford currently to upgrade to larger Bose systems which is our ultimate goal. We do however have access to two large powered speakers and out T1 tone match. Can we utilize them in a decent system so we can earn what is needed...Read More...
Hi, John. I have often used my T1 and L1 Compact and with third-party PA systems. I am super comfortable with the T1 and I have often use the ability to create a separate mix (Aux) to send to the third-party system, but that was because that third-party system was sophisticated enough to have its own effects and EQ. If you want to read more about that see T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Aux Output --∈∞ΘΞ Please click the picture for more details ΞΘ∞∋-- If the third-party powered loudspeakers...Read More...

L1 Compact in use with Gypsy Jazz meets Hendrix

Seagullman
Hi Everybody, I just stumbled across this and thought it might interest a few people on the forum. I've seen the guitarist in the foreground live and think he's phenomenal. The Bass player Dylan Taylor should be well known to jazz fans in and around Philadelphia. This version of "Hey Joe" is a bit different to most covers and may not be for everyone's ears. I think it's brilliant. The sound is what we would expect from an L1 system when supplied with good quality signals. Acoustic but loud...Read More...

Using multiple systems together

I have an LII with a tonematch 4 and a subwoofer. I am moving my system into a permanent space that is 17 and a half feet wide and 28 feet long. I would like to create a true stereo line array for the room, with enough inputs for at least three acoustic guitars, three electric guitars, a bass guitar and three microphones.

Hi DaveS, Thanks for the interesting question. I'm sorry not to have gotten back to you sooner. Let's check in on a couple of points. It sounds like you plan to your set band and the sound systems on the 17.5-foot wall facing the long dimension of the room. Please confirm. Do the acoustic guitars have built-in preamps? If they have volume/tone controls, they do. If not, will you have external processors for the acoustic guitars? For the electric guitars and bass guitar, will you have...Read More...
