S1 Pro line out to 1/8" stereo input

Hello ST, is there a specific cable that would be best for this? I am planning to BlueTooth across a hallway to the S1 Pro, and then connect another non-BlueTooth speaker to the output of the S1 Pro. The non-Bluetooth Speaker has a 1/8" stereo input, the same as channel three on the S1 Pro inputs. Thanks in advance, KenRead More...

S1Pro with Acoustic Bass Guitar

Hi everyone...new here. I am a professional bassist recently relocated from California to New Orleans. One of my intentions on moving here was to busk as a solo bassist. I have done many, many gigs as a solo bassist (not an oxymoron...think of the bass equivalent of chord/melody gtr playing), but the challenge of playing on the street sans electricity left scarce options for suitable amplification. There are very few battery pwred amps which are touted to be "bass amps".....and those few...Read More...
Hi All, I'm looking for ultra portable bass guitar rig and thinking of getting S1 as personal monitor. Lakeland Skyline 30 --> iRig --> DI --> S1 DI --> FOH However, not so sure can it be used as practice amp as well. I have to fight with 100W Fender guitar amp and drummer who is not too loud. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, EdRead More...

Hey guys Just got back from our last mini tour. It started in Wawa Ont. then Chapleau,Hearst, Kapuskasing and finally Timmins. We had a great time , met some really nice, interesting people and saw some cool things. You have to love that northern hospitality. We brought the Bose setup for what we thought was the one school workshop we had. The rest of the tour was supposed to be sound supplied. Thank God for that school because 3 of the venues either had sub-standard PA or no PA at all. We...Read More...

Best hookup L1 model S with Yamaha MG10XU

Can someone provide my best hookup options for Acoustic Guitar and Vocal with a Yamaha MG10XU I am a bit confused on if I should use both sides of the stereo outputs on MG10XU mixer (via a splitter) or simply plug in to (1) 1/4 inch output. Currently I split the XRL stereo out but not sure if that is the best hookup. Any help with correct type of cables ect. would be greatly appreciated.Read More...
Hi Rockbottom, You can use either. It's easier to suggest a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable because the ends are interchangeable (it doesn't matter which end is which), and it may be easier to find. STRead More...

T8S / T4S - getting the same sound as T1

ST honestly to have us to mess around settings just to get the same T1 reverb setting on the new T8s or T4s is not acceptable. We expect it to be plug and play with little tweaking. We would appreciate a software update to have this issue resolved back to the T1 reverb setting. Kind Regards MaximilanRead More...
Hi ST, I used Reverb type: Plate Time 40 Bal 75% Reverb - Mix 40% Bright 50% These settings are perfect. I am now a happy camper. The Large settings you set are also good but too much Reverb and can be changed by other forum members. Thanks again for your help always Kind Regards MaxRead More...

L1M2, B2 Smell?

Hello everyone, Happy owner of a L1M2B2 system. Just recently took ownership after buying if off a friend who didntd use it all that much so it was essentially new. We use it for every jam and have only used it out of the house once. So in the jam space we only run vocals and kick through it. Kick is setup with the Beta52 preset, and a compressor, as the kick gate doesn't play nice with my current drum. So the issue is the B2 is now producing a smell from the front ports. It's seems to have...Read More...
Okay! First hand band practice with the returned B2. No smell from the sub. I got a follow-up email from the tech line and they said all Bose items returned for warranty are fully dismantled and if necessary parts are upgraded to the latest and greatest. Everyone I've spoken with said they didn't do any repairs, so the process of taking it apart and putting it back together resolved the issue. Sub working perfectly with no smell at all. Wonderful! Now that the sub has stopped stinking, I'm...Read More...

Can I use my Behringer Europro 800 watt powered mixer with my L1 Compact

I just received my L1 and am really eager to use it. But I heard that I cannot use my powered mixer with this due to the fact that it is a powered speaker. I saw on this forum that someone is able to use their powered mixer with theirs. Is there any way I can use these together, and how do I set it up? Thanks!Read More...

Combining L1 with FOH support

I Play in a band which uses backing tracks and an L1s. We are a 3 piece , and have an accoustic dummer, electric guitar, and 2 singers. I'm looking at expanding the system to cover bigger rooms if needed. Can someone give me ideas for an upgrade. I'm thinking the optimum would be to add a full F1 system for FOH, or alternatively 2 x F1 812 speakers for extra girth. Would these speakers all match well in a live setting ? Or is there a better solution?Read More...
Just reporting back. I bought 2x F1 812 tops, will see how they go with the L1s and B2.Read More...

Static - L1 compact with T1, guitar & mic

I am experiencing frequent static when touching the strings of my guitar. If not touching strings there is no static. I was wondering if it could be static electricity from my body but other suggestions would be appreciated. The static sounds much the same as you hear from static electricity when touching something. Any suggestions for resolution (other than "don't touch the guitar")? ThanksRead More...

Phantom power with custom cable and Boss VE5

Cleverson
Hello ST My Ipad is connected to channel 1 with the cable same to the attached figure, and on channel 2 the BOSS VE-5, what happens if I accidentally press the Phanton Power button? Thanks from Brazil.Read More...
Another option for the iPad is to use a LTIBlox interface. It will take the iPad stereo output, convert it to mono and an XLR connection. It works very well and would remove any concerns about phantom power hitting the iPad. It's low cost but works very well. You could also use an extension cable to connect it to the iPad so you could keep the volume control close to you. It is much easier to dial in the correct volume for that knob then to go by the block increases of the iPad. Just set the...Read More...

Power on but no sound from L1 Classic

Hello, I have 3 L1 Classics that have been trouble free since 2003. One of them however has decided to go quiet on me. The power LED comes on and the signal LED on the channel 1 and/or 2 show that the signal is present to the amp. I can hear a faint hiss in the tower but nothing else. Any suggestions?Read More...
Will do. I've read where there is no longer support for the Classic but I will most certainly give them a call. Thank you!Read More...

S1 Pro gig report Christmas Eve

troubador
Merry Christmas to all ... I thought I'd drop a line in about how the S1 did last evening. My Dad asked me to accompany him on a carol at his church's Carol Service which was held last evening. I decided to try my S1 on a speaker stand. Wow! Very different sound (in a good way!) from the way I've been using it so far (on the ground, tilted back). The church is - I'm guessing here - about 70' long and 40' wide. There must have been around 100 people there. I put the S1 on a stand close to the...Read More...
I only use my S1 at the gig as a monitor. I'll have to try it on a stand . Thanks for the gig report troubadour and I'm glad to hear it went well. Cheers and best wishes to you too and everyone here on the forum.Read More...
