T1 Tone Match channel 4/5

Is there a way to utilize channel 4/5 for a vocal mic. What type of impedance matching adapter would be required for a sm58 or 57 for mic'ing amps? Should I use a DI box to split a mic chord into twp separate 1/4" male adapters? Is there a fix around the decibel drop in a line input? We had trouble with this change of setup: I play with two musicians each have their own L1 system and tone match. I used a small mackie board that sent my output to tone match 1, tone match 1 sent my signal and...Read More...

2 x L1® Compacts and Looking for Extra Bass Power

DJMichaelDemby
So I own 2 L1® Compacts and have been getting some incredible sound for events up to 200 people!!! I regularly red-line and know these can be pushed more, but don't want to stress out the system too hard and get distorted sound or worse, blow the L1C. I've been told to get a powered sub and after MUCH research, decided on the QCS KSub. I am asking for an opinion on my decision to get the KSub and do I have to worry about stereo output to the KSub (RCA out from both L1C into KSub XLR input...Read More...
ah..gotcha..yeah i had already read that thread..and in fact responded on there with my new addition of the ZXA1..not the little tops..the 12" sub woofer..700-800 watts..smaller than most any other in it's class. searching your tube etc.. I'm not the first person to go with this bundle...I like your new rig...very cool...Read More...

Proper configuration

I just purchased my first Bose system, according to UPS tracking it should arrive tomorrow. I purchased 2 L1 Model 2 with a T1 Tonematch and 2 B2 subs. I will use them in my DJ setup with the output from a Denon MC6000 mixer in a mono arrangement. I DJ mainly weddings and some smaller parties usually around 200 guests. What would be the most efficient/proper way for me to route the input? Should I just bypass the T1 and send a signal to each L1? Thanks in advance. Dan HaleyRead More...
Yes, but it's not critical for DJ work. For a band, it helps to have the L1 behind the performers so that it can be used as a monitor. So if you can, having the system behind you will allow you to really hear what the audience is hearing. If the placement doesn't work for the venue though, you can move wherever it fits best. Thanks, NickRead More...

Proper setup for two (2) F1 812 - No Sub

I did a new install for a church and am having trouble with the setup. I have two (2) F1 812s, flown, no sub. It's a mono system so my connections are: Mixer (Presonus 32.4.2AI), mono output => 812 (left), Input 1, Input Signal: Line Level. Line Out to 812 (right), Input 1, Input Signal: Line Level. EQ: Full Range (on both) Input 1 Volume: 50% (on both) The problem I am having is, the speaker on the right is twice as loud as the left. The left speaker sounds "thin" and distorted; the...Read More...
mic/line level switch maybe not set the same?Read More...

Model 1 No Longer Serviceable - Options?

One of my L1 Model 1's failed recently - I believe the PS1 power supply to be the issue as a quick search reveals this seems to be a common problem, at least with the earlier generation models. After a brief discussion with Bose support, I must say I'm disappointed to learn the Model 1 is "no longer repairable". I was advised of an "exchange" course of action for a Model 2 in a "worst case scenario". As the primary use for my L1's have been for mobile DJ applications, I have some concerns...Read More...
My L1 Classic & my L1/M1 both failed within the last few years. I found no options for repair on either unit. The first was replaced with a L1/M2 refurbished unit for reduced price. The Second was replaced with a brand new L1/M2 unit at a discounted price (the replacement of the older of the two costing slightly more). I have been using both L1/M2's for live shows for a couple years and they sound fine. Even though the Classics (and maybe the L1/M1) were 750W, and the newer models are...Read More...

L1 Model II cutting out during performance

I experienced the same thing last night during a live performance. Last night during a performance my ToneMatch lost all sound with the vocals. The vocals completely went out and I had no signal. I play in a three-piece band and we only use one channel for the main vocal and the second channel for stereo guitar. I traced all cables and lines in but could not get a signal in any of the channels using the XLR cables. I then changed out the Mics and the mic and was able to get a signal. I was...Read More...
Hi raylpb, Thanks for writing in and I'm sorry for the trouble. It sounds like there are a few variables here. First, I'd recommend giving us a call to troubleshoot since in this case I think that'll be easier than going back and forth through the forum (877-335-2673). From your description, I think it's safe to rule out the L1 towers/amps themselves as being the issue. It sounds like the guitar continued to play through the system and only the vocals were cutting out. Is the guitar...Read More...

T1 Tone match

I would like to purchase T1 tone match but not sure if it will suit my set up regarding the number of inputs. My band is 2 acoustic guitars, 1 acoustic bass, 3 vocals, and 1 miked up cajon drum. Can I somehow accommodate these into the inputs ? Please advise.Read More...
Hi James, This is a very valid question. To run all those sources through the system, you'll need more channels than the T1 ToneMatch can provide. It's possible to still use the T1 in the setup, but with up to 7 sources, it'd be easier to manage everything with a single, larger mixer. A common way to use the T1 in this type of setup is to have the three vocal mics connected to channels 1-3 on the T1, and then have another mixer buss everything else into channel 4/5 on the T1. This will allow...Read More...

L1 Model 1 and L1 Model 2 Setup?

One of my Model 1's went out and I'm currently looking at the Model 2 as a replacement (w/ trade-in of the dead Model 1). Does anyone have experience using a Model 1 on one channel (L) and a Model 2 on the other (R)? No Tonematch at this point. Any help is much appreciated.Read More...

F1 on parade float - pic

Hi This past weekend we had the opportunity to perform on top of a float for our local town annual Christmas parade. We placed each F1 speaker on a stand facing out towards each side of the parade float and the F1 sub was placed centre front of float. It wasn’t the ideal situation but it worked. Performing on a moving float is difficult but we had a great time. There were a total of 45 floats in the parade. Float number 45 was of course Santa Claus. We were float number 42. I don’t have a...Read More...

Anyone using (2) L1 Compacts?

This is really a two-part question: First, I was curious if anyone found themselves doubling-up by using (2) of the L1 Compact units -- either to increase volume or to provide more consistent coverage? I ask this because I am contemplating the L1 Compact; and while I can foresee it working well as a single unit in some venues, I also wonder if I might need to move a bit more air in other situations, and perhaps (2) of the L1c units would do the trick. By this rationale, one might select...Read More...
Hi Paul, yes, thanks it does help. It was just this that I wanted clarity on as I was more than a little surprised at what you wrote earlier. Compared to your impression at the Bose Showcase store. This is what I would have expected at your first hearing at GC. Now you've had the chance to compare the systems and have made the choice that suits your needs. The Model II (or Model 1S) would benefit from the T1 (or any other mixer for that matter) as it has no EQ of any kind when going into the...Read More...

B1 or B2

Hi folks Sadly I had an issue with my L1 Model 2 w B1 which I recently bought and is being replaced this week. The dealer has offered me to upgrade from the B1 to the B2 for no extra money, a kind of goodwill gesture. Part of me says grab the offer with no question but the other part asks if it is really necessary for what I do. I am a solo singer using pro grade backing and live guitar, acoustic and electric and I use the T1 Tonematch. I'm not sure if the B2 will actually be a benefit or a...Read More...
Hi Geoff, You may have to do some fine-tuning when you get things all hooked up. I have L1® Compacts and L1® Model IIs. I don't make any changes on the T1® when I move from one to another. It doesn't sound like the issues you had were related to T1® settings. STRead More...

Acoustic Gig - F1 812 (no bass unit)

Greetings all: Just a short note letting you folks know about how my live acoustic gig last night. I played at a winery. Just a little background first; I've been using my L1 Model II, B2 bass speaker for three years and love it. I wanted to use a set up that did not have as many pieces and parts. So, after much thought, I purchase the F1 812 from Jozy at Sweetwater. We spoke about my intended use and was very supportive of my pursuit and reported to me several of his customers have used the...Read More...
What I was looking for is a shorter stand to use. The speaker weighs a significant amount such that I have to try and balance the speaker on my shoulder. This LOWER stand is very heavy duty and works very well.Read More...

L1 Model 2 cutting out during performance

Hi Guys I recently upgraded to the L1 Model 2, I have used it twice since I bought it two weeks ago, I use the Compacts for most of my gigs but bought the Model 2 for the bigger gigs. I did a gig today in a village hall with around 120 attentive people in a cabaret style format, I know my Compacts would have done the job but I wanted to use the Model 2 to get a feel of it in a bigger venue. The performance was basically wrecked because the Model 2 kept cutting out and I don't know why. The...Read More...

Yamaha Moxf8 and Bose L1 compact Noise

I'm getting a loud noise when connecting a normal 1/4 cable from the mono output on my Yamaha MoxF8 synth to input 2 on the Bose L1 compact (line setting). However, when I connect to the RCA input on the Bose using a 1/4 inch to RCA cable, it works fine with no noise. I use the Moxf8 connected to other sound equipment and don't have this problem.

Updates for L1 and Tone Match

A friend of mine asked me for help to update his L1 Compact System. He had tried to do that himself for his PA that he had bought in 2010 (assumed). After starting to learn about updating on www.bose.com/musicians I understand - at least to some extend - the trouble he is having as being a not too IT-affin person. For example in the instructions you read about zip-files which you only will find on second or even third level search. So: The web-page is really not easy to use for a musician.Read More...

Two Tonematch Setup

Hi ... Had a thought ... To gain more input channels, and still use the tonematch, what would be the best method, at all if recommended, of chaining two tonematch engines together? For example, using an L1M2B2 per side as a traditional FOH, without using another brand mixer, but we need more than 4 inputs.....can we use 4 inputs on the tonematch 1, master out to ch3/4 input on tonematch 2, and the additional ch 1,2, and 3 on tonematch 2 for a total of 7 input channels? makes tonematch 2 the...Read More...
Hello ST, I cascade two T1s, in the manner I described, when I run the sound at small open mic events where I use my two T1s to mix, so that I can have an overall volume adjustment of all the channels via one Master volume knob, and still be able to individually adjust each channel independently, as necessary. Even after all this time (using the Bose approach) I still find many musicians struggle to mix themselves as they are consumed with all the other things that performing presents to...Read More...

I have two passive pickup acoustic guitars I use. When I switch guitars, I dont want to have to pull the cable out of one and plug into the other when performing live.
