JBL Eon One Compact, Competition for the S1?

CityFolk
WIth It’s larger subwoofer (8” sizes built in sub), Wireless app access to the mixer section, master volume, multiple effects, phantom power, daisy chaining multiple units, 12 hour battery operation with no tool battery access, and 15 lbs, JBL has a very compelling unit the JBL EON One Compact . It is disturbingly close to the S1 in overall design. It doesn’t seem to be available yet and the proof is in the quality of sound that Bose has always excelled at, but from a pure features...Read More...

F1 addition to my L1 + T1 set up

I'm a solo acoustic vocalist and acoustic guitar player playing small to medium-sized rooms. I have been running the L1 successfully for the last 6 months and found that on a few shows where the crowd wanted to dance I needed a little more air to move and the mids and low end to kick a little harder. So I just picked up an F1 812 speaker without the sub to my set up. My question is what is the best way to run the F1 and the L1 from the T1 so I can utilize its extra power in the best way ...Read More...
I’m curious about this thread. I’ve got the L1S and I’m thinking about reinforcing it with the F1 812. To the OP, how did you set your two systems up in relation to each other? Was it a remarkable difference and was feedback an issue? Thanks.Read More...

Hi Ive just purchased an l1 classic model 1 system and connected the 2 b1 subs only to find that theres no bass coming thru. I removed the speaker towers from the base unit and just connected the subs to find that if i increased the volume to a very high setting there was some but little signal coming thru. Could this be a problem with a dry joint in side the unit? or a failure from the amp? Help pleaseRead More...

Bose 1 model 2 Red light

Forum: Solo Acts
Can anyone help please , Just had to cancel gig , it was a low ceiling so used just lower tower , after 20 mins I heard a crack or maybe a bang , the sound went off and power base light turned red . I switched off and tried again after 30 secs , it went normal (blue light ) for 30 seconds and then stayed red . Had to come home . Thanks Francis .Read More...
Hi Francis, There seems to be some confusion about which model L1 that you have, however, I don't think it matters as far as using it with just the bottom array. When you contact support be sure to have the exact model and serial number available. O..Read More...

Hii.. i need help using my f1 loudspeaker as i replaced my old one as the 12" woofer was damaged.. while i already use the limiter and i was watching the limit LED.. now after i replaced it , i'am all the time looking at the back LED and the front one. And this really bothers me i'm not having fun all the time turning up and down the volume as sometime the limiter led blink and return again as i listen to techno and tech house music.. any help to get rid of this hustle?? Thanks..Read More...
If it's possible to get a 2nd F1 Model 812 on rent for a day (or if another friend has it ... or if you could take your speaker to the showroom & A/B it against their display until)... you could compare both speakers to see if they are limiting at the same time ... also swap left/right to re-ensure limiting is happening correctly (sometimes one channel may be hotter than the other depending on recording content). If both speakers are limiting at the same time, you're driving your speaker...Read More...

If you need to split three sources, then use the T8S Aux Outputs Please click the picture for more details. Does that help? STRead More...

L1 classic 2 x bass subs verses F1 812 speaker

Hi I am a solo artist using iPad for backing tracks and T1 mixer adding guitar and currently use the L1 classic system with 2x bass subs. I Usually play small to medium club rooms and on a few occasions larger clubs. Looking to carry less gear (getting old) and was considering using one F1 812 speaker on a stand with the T1 mixer. Trying to find out if anyone is already doing this and happy with the set up compared to the sound of the L1 set up. Many Thanks WarrenRead More...

L1 compact with T4S and LR baggs PARA DI

Hi I have a gig coming up and I have a question on how I should set up. I use an L1 compact with a T4S and I connect a guitar and a piano. I use my L1 as a monitor but I'm in doubt on how I should connect to the house PA. We only have the option on stage to connect to the house PA with XLR. I have an active DI (LR baggs Para DI). Should I use the aux output to my L1 and the master output to the DI? Or should I use the output on the L1 compact to the DI? Can I use phantom power to power my...Read More...
Hi Gertjan, Looking at the Para DI User's Guide (PDF) If you connect the T4S Aux Output or the L1 Compact Line out to the LR Baggs input, the phantom power from the house PA should not be passed back to the Bose gear. Use an unbalanced cable from the Bose equipment to the LR Baggs Para DI. To avoid picking up line noise, keep the cable under 20 feet (6 meters). STRead More...

Can I safely use the subwoofer only for L1 compact

Can I safely use the subwoofer only for L1 compact - without the bar? Edit Subject: Previously "Only subwoofer" Bose Pro Community AdminRead More...
Hi Lennart, If you use a low pass filter, you can leave the L1 Compact speaker array installed. If you won't have a chance to experiment before the show, I would take all the components (L1 Compact power stand, speaker array, and extensions) so you have all the options available to you.

T4s Issues

Hello, During our last 2 gigs, I have experienced 2 different issues with the T4s. First off, I had an Issue where the T4s was unable to stay on (using tonematch cable) at the beginning of a show. If I moved the cable it would restart. I figured there could be an issue with the cable, so I grabbed a different ethercon cable and all was well. Along the same lines, during setup of the following gig, I plugged in the T4s (with the cable that was working) and there was no sound going to the L1...Read More...
Hi, Dave Hazel. I'm sorry you are having these poor experiences with the T4S and B2. Are you working with Bose Support? The T4S is definitely under warranty and in or out of warranty, they can help with the B2 and L1 Model 1S Power Stand. Bose Support UK +44 1634 224 288 Mon - Fri: 09:00-18:30, Sat 09:00-17:00 GMT Or write technical_support_uk@bose.com I would call. STRead More...

Transmisión de sonido inalámbrica

Hello to all. which is the best configuration to transmit sound wireless with plug on Sennheiser from the output Booth stereo controller pionner?. I need to take sound to a lounge adjacent to wedding. in the lounge adjoining I will install 2 s1 pro. wireless signal up to 1 s1 pro channel 1 and from the departure to the other s1 pro also channel 1. configuration mono. Gracias...Read More...
Hi, Andiviedo. This transmitter is mono. You can only transmit one side of a stereo output (left or right). If possible, set the output of the Pioneer stereo controller to mono. Looking at the manual for the Sennheiser EW100 G3 system you should also have this EM 300 receiver. For best results, use the XLR output (green) #12 with a cable like this See: S1 Pro Daisy Chain Click the picture for more details. Does that help? STRead More...

Connecting an F1 to an L1 with (2) T1's

Hi - we are a band. We have three guitars, bass, drums and keyboards. We use the L1 for 4 vocal inputs only and match amp levels to the drums and L1. We like it very much. It keeps us from playing too loud in a smaller space. However, since we have 4 mics we use 2 T1's . The second is plugged in 4/5 of the first T1. First of all - is that the best (preferred or most balanced) input scheme for 4 mic for vocals? We would like a simpler way to connect so we are considering changing the (2) T1...Read More...

Matching the Bose L1 MII with B2s + QSC K12.2...

Hi, I have two Bose L1 Model II with two B2 bass subs. I've used these as a main PA for a few years now. I'm very happy with the L1 + B2...very good sounding and ease of transport. [some background - 6 piece classic rock / country band - : two guitars, bass, keyboards, drums, 5 vocals] However, I've found for some larger gigs (outdoors or large halls), the Bose system just doesn't carry the event. So, I'm thinking about adding/replacing it with a QSC PA. However, the question I'm throwing...Read More...

I am considering buying a second L1, bass module and ToneMatch mixer. 1. Can I amplify these musicians with the two L1's, place them behind us, and not use...Read More...
