Hiss / hum from my S1

troubador
Just noticed a hiss from my S1. I had it on a stand and when I stood near it, I noticed a sound. I have a T1 connected by TRS cable from Master to ch.1 on the S1. With the trim at 12 o'clock there's an audible hiss or hum. Cranking up the trim makes this hiss very noticeable. The T1 was on but all channels were muted. I have two mics connected to the T1 - SM58 and Beta 58a and my Takamine acoustic. Since all channels on the T1 were muted, my assumption is that no signal is passing to the S1.Read More...
I just checked one of my S1s for hiss. Nothing plugged in. with all three volume controls at noon, I couldn't hear any hiss until I put my ear up against the grill. Very slight hiss. When I turn all three up to max, I can hear hiss, but I can't turn them up that loud without making the speakers fart out anyway. Even then, the hiss would not be an issue for me at a quiet acoustic gig. Your mileage may vary. Perhaps some are adding hiss with whatever they're plugging into the S1?Read More...

L1 Model 2 vs F1 Model 812 with F1 sub

I am very new to this field. Bought L1 model II with B2 as one of my friend recommended this. I have seen F1 Model 812 with F1 sub seems like covering bigger crowd and also higher watts based on the overview of the product. Any reason why one would prefer L1 model 2 over F1 model 812 with F1. I ask because i am planning to return L1 M2 and get F1 Model 812.. Any info which will help to make my mind would be helpful. Thx SriRead More...
The source of the sound being amplified....What I mean is they are playing music that wasn't recorded well, or playing an instrument that's not being played right or out of tune. Kind of like seeing someone on a high definition TV for the first time. How could they possibly look WORSE? because the high definition provided so much clarity that the flaws that weren't visible before are now crystal clear. I believe clarity should always win😄Read More...

L1 model 2 - b2 switch setting for karaoke

Hi I am new to this field and also new to bose L1 model 2 with B2. I had my first event last weekend. I kept my B2 bass setting at +. while playing songs it sounds fine. but when i played karaoke tracks and singers sing found base was too high and couldn't hear singer singing clearly..I can't keep switching switch setting at B2 for each performance as that is not possible. which setting is preferable in this situation. I also use T8S anything we an tweak at T8 end in this situation. Pls adviseRead More...

T1 ToneMatch audio engine reverbs...?

Hi all, Bought this unit recently, for live solo gigs. Been pretty handy and compact, have read a bit, fiddled a bit, set scenes and changed them.... A bit surprised to find the reverbs lacking any depth.. There are several to choose from, I dial in something in the rehearsal room and of course at the gig am generally looking for a little more, but it just doesn't seem to have any more to offer. Has anyone else had similar experiences..? I find I prefer the reverb on the Yamaha stagepas and...Read More...

Subwoofer for S1 Pro

CityFolk
Several folks have started using the Behringer 1200D subwoofer with the S1 to bolster its lower end. It got me to thinking that it would be nice for Bose to develop a similar type of optional subwoofer for the S1, but perhaps base (no pun intended) it on a B1 or 2. Further, it would be nice to have this new B1/2 interchangeable with a L1 as many of us use both depending on the venue size. I expect one of the challenges would be how to make this new subwoofer work off battery power to...Read More...
Interesting conversation, but the S1's appeal is it's size and it's ability to be used on batteries. I feel muddiness, stability, and power consumption are the problems the S1 would have to master to achieve more lower end. Good effects and low end bass needs power and fast transients. Batteries would die quickly under such demand. By-amping might deal with it but weight and size and cone size would have to be changed, and then there is the battery issue. I would use an 8 inch cone but for...Read More...

Thanks ST I understand fully the issues - as I couldn't get a guest artist working due to the incompatibility issue but, the "48kHz/24Bit" notes in the manual "could" lead people to believe their media has to be to this spec.... Thanks DaveRead More...

Blue tooth fading problem with S1 PRO

I have always had the problem when turning down the knob on the S1 PRO of the sound abruptly cutting off instead of doing a normal fade. Is there an update available to fix this? This happens regardless of the phone setting volume.Read More...
The digital needs to perform like the analog. Apparently, a long way to go on this yet.Read More...

One or two?

Hey! I'm preparing to purchase either one or two L1 Model 2 B2 systems depending on what I hear in this discussion. The system I need will support 2 acoustics, 2 vocals, and tracks. We might also include bass and electric guitar or Piano/keyboard on occasion. From what I can understand, I will use in ear monitors for the tracks. Venues will be small sanctuaries or multi-purpose rooms. Music will be accoustic Chrisitian contemporary. Advice, please. Thanks.Read More...
I run two L1B2 sets on a T4S and while there are those quantifying the cost on a power / volume basis I can recommend the system from a pure sound quality perspective. i did run 1 set with a T1 and that sounded good. With a T4S and two L1B2 systems there is an apparent lift in fidelity and most of those who know the L1 around me say the same. It is not always a question of two units double power, you still control the volume, but the sound difference is very noticeable.Read More...

Vocal blend with various equipment

Recently, I worked for several years with an L1 Model 2 and T1. I was never able to get my voice in the mix regardless of settings, mics, etc.. Many years ago, I used to sing through a Fender Super Reverb guitar amp with electric guitar and electric drum and was able to get a very satisfying blend from that. I find I can now get a similarly satisfying blend with my Shure Beta and Bluetooth music with the S1. Can someone explain this?Read More...

Channel 3 fading with S1 volume knob?

When you Bluetooth music through Channel 3, can you do a complete volume knob fade, or does it, like my S1, cut off too early?Read More...
Hi Dance Host, The S1 Pro System channel 3 volume control behaves differently than the volume controls on channels 1 and 2. Slow to Respond If you find the volume control seems slow to respond (especially between 7-11 o'clock) please turn up the volume at the source (Bluetooth or physical connection). For Bluetooth connections, if you set the volume on the source device to maximum, this will give you the greatest usable range on the S1 Pro Aux Channel volume control. Steps in Volume The S1...Read More...

Feedback sources help needed

I am Singing with my S1 Pro with music tracks. Using a smart phone and Shure Beta mic and standing 4 feet in front of the S1. My question here is which channel is more likely to cause feedback at optimum levels, channel 1 with the mic or channel 3 with the Bluetooth music?Read More...
Granted, we can hear from the side or behind. What I'm saying is if you get in front of the S1, with its small array, you can really get intimate and totally monitor your vocal output. With this unit, being to the side or being back, doesn't compare with it being behind you.Read More...

L1 Model 1 paired with JBL Eon for monitor?

Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to using my L1 + bass modeul (got as an very nice Xmas gift) I was thinking about using my old JBL Eon speaker as a monitor when playing big rooms. Is this possible? How would I go about that? I also am using a Tonematch T4S (ps. I LOVE the sound I'm getting!) I am a solo acoustic musician so i'm only plugging in my Washburn and Shure Beta Mic. Thanks in advance!Read More...
Hi AlysiaSBeslisle, If you put the L1 behind you, you don't need a monitor. Check out The L1® Approach and the History of Amplification Have you got a minute? Please tell us about your music. STRead More...

Running signal from pre amp out on T1 Tonematch to RC300

I’m running an RC 300 looper with a separate second microphone to loop vocals that connects directly from mic to looper. Everything runs to my T1 Tonematch. My T1 is the original model. I’m looking to minimize cable and gear and was wondering if I can simply run a 1/4” to XLR M cable from from the Pre amp out on my mic channel #1 straight into my looper. In theory, I could then work with one mic for both vocals and looping. Effects are not that important when looping. I’ve programmed my FX...Read More...
Thank you so much for that. I’ll give it a try. Hoping it’s not too hot that I can’t turn down the volume on the mic on the RC300 and get something useable. If not, I have a radial ABo up in Canada I can try. At least, now I know what cables “should” work. I mount my T1 on my mic stand so all cables are custom shorties so minimal cable lengths save me a lot of weight. Many thanks, DavidRead More...

Wiring for inside of B1 Subwoofer

Hi Cn anyone give or tell me me a wiring diagram of the inside of the B1 sub I bought one and all the wires are missing inside So i need it from the speakon conecctors to the speakersRead More...
Hi Brasscity, Having never been inside a B1 I can't say for sure, but: The B1 module is an 8 ohm speaker. That suggests there are two 4 ohm speakers wired in series . If a second B1 is connected to the first, that would be a parallel connection resulting in a 4 ohm load to the power base. The B1 uses a four wire connector and has a resistor installed in the cabinet for the separate pair of wires that communicate with the power stand to let it know how many B1s are attached and the eq curve...Read More...

Help selecting a system

Hi, I'm looking to purchase a portable PA system. I have a 9000 sq ft ball room which we will use the system for town hall, meetings, seminars. up to 450 guests within 75 ft. of the stage/speaker location. we use a Shure Sm85 for our Mic. We need something portable for offsite events in much smaller venues. Parties, reunions, ect. Needs: Single person setup and portability. Bluetooth connectivity for phone/ipod/laptop audio. (onboard or adding the adapter) Input for wired laptop/ipod/phone.Read More...
Hi Lawrence, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. A single Bose L1 Model II with B2 bass module will provide coverage for the ballroom as you have described. Add a T4S ToneMatch mixer to accept the inputs you described below. The L1 system is portable, and with the extremely wide horizontal dispersion, it works in large and small venues for all kinds of functions (spoken word to parties). The L1 Model II system is made up of four pieces: Cylindrical Radiator® (the...Read More...

Recording with Tascam

I would like to record my bands rehearsals and live performances. I was advised to use a computer and interface to connect via USB to the Tonematch 4. I don't want to use a computer and interface. I would prefer to use something like the Tascam pocket studio. I'm not looking to necessarily separate tracks. I just want a simple way to record what I'm hearing played through our tonematch and tower speakers. Before I purchase any recording device, I thought I'd ask you for your advice. I...Read More...

Tonematch EQ profiles to use with FOH mixer

Our small portable church (gymnasium) recently purchased 4 L1M2 systems with four T4S mixers to replace the standard FOH PA system. We love the sound but for several reasons, we would like to use our current Presonus board to mix and the Bose as FOH/Monitors behind the band. (See reasons at the end if curious). When we were playing through the T4S, we had no issues with mic feedback. We are now bypassing the T4S entirely (it didn't seem to work to go from the mixer to the T4S to the L1; my...Read More...

The DJ app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store for Android devices. However, I think that the DJ app only supports streaming via Spotify.
