Bose Connect won't connect to S1 Pro after firmware update to version 7.1.5

Update here too: My Bose app refuses to connect. Rebooted the phone, deleted and reinstalled the app, but .... no! I was told 20 times to turn the speaker on (some more funny messages too), that's too much for me. I give up. Bluetooth connection with the phone works perfectly but the app doesn't believe. No biggie, let's see if the batteries hold their charge for a while.Read More...
Hi Enrique, I'm sorry you're still having trouble getting the Bose Connect app to connect to your S1 Pro. Please pick one iOS device.

Uninstall Bose Connect and then Install it again On your iOS or iPadOS device go to Settings Bluetooth Select your Bose S1 Pro and Forget Device Put S1 Pro into pairing mode (press the Bluetooth button until the...Read More...

Next Generation Bose F1 System

DJ8X
Although Bose did not unveil any new products at Winter NAMM 2020, I wonder are they working on something. The Bose F1 System has been out for quite a while and they have heard feedback from all aspects of the musical entertainment community. I am about to invest more into the Bose brand along the lines of the F1 products. I would hate to expand my current F1 rig with products that are available right now, and then 5 months down the road, Bose launches next generation F1 stuff. I just need...Read More...
Unfortunately that is the case with many, if not all, companies. Think it is actually worse with other technology. There will is always a better phone or computer just around the corner. I am in a similar situation. I have 2 S1 Pros and just bought an F1 Sub. Will soon get the F1 top to go with the sub. Be bummed if they do release and new and improved version a few months down the road. But better to have the gear now and make use of it than to not have it. Someone gave me advice a while...Read More...

Gig report. Adding an S1 for a monitor?

Hello everyone! The L1M2B2T1 had it's first real gig yesterday. It didn't do an amazing job, but the room was massive. Basically an airport hanger with brewery in it. Up close it was super clear, but it just didn't have the headroom (before feedback) to carry to the back (A set of F1 systems would probably have been the answer so I can't be mad at the stick). We had huge issues with feedback, the worst yet TBH. I had the tower on stage angled at about 45 degrees 12-15' behind the singer. The...Read More...
Not really my friend. I learned a while back that I don't have to hit the drums at 110% were just a two piece with a 15 watt fender and 200 watt bass amp. We are not having a volume war that's for sure. We always play with ear plugs regardless and I think this is the trouble. You don't realize how loud things get with plugs in until you run out of headroom haha.Read More...

L1 Compact or S1 Pro

I am a mobile DJ that does mostly weddings and school dances. I currently use two F1 systems for my "main rig", and use my two L1 Compacts for outdoor wedding ceremonies or remote sound if needed. Would it be best to keep my current L1 Compact systems, or sell them and get two S1 Pro speakers instead?Read More...
I had been using the compacts for wedding ceremonies for years. They were fantastic. but the s1 pro’s take the ceremony process to the next level. due to the lack of ambient noise, I’ve not done one ceremony that an s1 pro wasn’t loud enough for. I’ve used 2 a few times, but didn’t really need it. the biggest advantage is battery power. It changes everything. Now, I don’t need to even wonder about power or running of cords. With weather, I can have the equipment inside until the last...Read More...

T1 RJ-45 port broken

Colin
Hi ST need a little help please, my T1 Tonematch was working fine last Friday then Saturday it refused to work, all lit up but no sound to speaker, at first I thought it was the lead but after trying 3 I discovered it was the pins in the RJ - 45 port are all bent over each other, God only knows how this has happened, I used a small screwdriver to separate them which gave me sound but only if I wrapped the lead around the T1 to make connection, I fiddled some more and eventually broke a...Read More...

Big or Small, Bose has it all

DJ8X
This is just a scaling of rigs that a mobile DJ such as myself can take advantage of using the Bose Products... I seldom play outdoors. So with that here is my scaling model. 2 S1 Pro - Small 2 S1 Pro / 1 F1 Sub 2 F1 812 - don't know, but could be comparable to the above rig 2 F1 812 / 1 F1 Sub 2 F1 812 / 2 F1 Subs 2 F1 812 / 4 F1 Subs 4 F1 812 / 4 F1 Subs - Large With this in your arsenal, it all comes down to how big is your event and how much gear do you want to haul and set up.Read More...

Reverb for vocal

Hi Guys I am just throwing this out there to see what others are using to apply a touch of reverb to their vocals when using the L1 Compact without the Tonematch. Reason I ask is because I use my S1 Pro for small functions such as care homes and coffee lounges and I kind of like that it's got built in effects. There are some gigs where I like to use my L1 Compact which I mostly use dry (mic/guitar straight in) but after the convenience of having the S1 with it's onboard reverb I have been...Read More...
I like the sound of the Strymon blueSky Reverbaration pedal sent through my mixer on vocals. A simple fix.Read More...

Monitors

Need some help please. 6 person band. Acoustic guitar/vocal, acoustic guitar/vocal, acoustic guitar, mandolin/vocal, bass/vocal, & percussion. Everything into t8s mixer to L1Model2 except bass and percussion. We are having troubles hearing ourselves individually in the mix. Band mates refuse IEM so that is not an option.

Hi, tbytes. Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. You've had lots of input on this, so I'm going to ask a few questions to see if we can drill down to the source of the problem. Where is the L1 Model II in relation to the band? Is it set up behind you, off to one side, between the band and the audience, or ...? I count four vocal microphones, three acoustic guitars, and one mandolin going through the T8S and L1. Is that right? That's a lot of similar sound sources coming through one...Read More...

Buzzing when playing Acoustic guitar

I purchased S1 pro about 1.5 years ago and while playing the concert recently , 5th string started to buzz through S1 pro, even when barely touching it, the buzz spread to B note on second fret. No buzzing on the guitar itself, only when amplified. Any advice? Thanks!Read More...

chaining T1s and T8s

hello I have 2 L1M2, one T8s and one T1s Is it possible to chain the 2 mixers, for exemple mixing a drum set in the T1, sending the output to the T8s which is connected to the L1 ? May be a problem with the power suppy of the T1 ? This would be great to extend the entries of the T8s ... Thank you for your answers jpmagRead More...
Hi, Cowboy Upp. There are a couple of options: Connect each ToneMatch mixer to each L1. (4 channels to one L1, 8 channels to the other L1). Each sound source (e.g., drums) goes to only one L1. Super simple, but that doesn't sound like jpmag wants this Connect the T1 to the T8S and connect the T8S to both L1s This is described in the article T1 to T8S ToneMatch Mixer If you Connect the T1 to an L1 for power ) L1#1 (ToneMatch Port), as you suggested AND Connect the T1 to the T8S Connect the...Read More...

From t1 to t4

Scott Hanna
Hello all, I've upgraded to the t4 from a t1. Everything seems fine, but it does seem like I have the volume controls significantly higher on the t4 to get similar levels. Specifically talking about channel 4/5 with PC to USB, connecting my computer to my t4. I do weddings mostly. The other channels are used for mics, with aux for a backup iPad. Did not notice any difference for those channels. With my t1, I rarely had my channel 4(computer) control above 12 o clock. This past weekend, I had...Read More...
Thanks St. Yes, you've got it exactly now. I will do a check with both too. Just making sure I wasn't overlooking anything. Lol, I certainly hope it wasn't my computer volume that was lower...but certainly possible. I am liking the additional inputs/outputs on the t4. I just did a large karaoke corporate party. Had 2x L1M2, 2x s1 pro's for monitor speakers, and a compact wirelessly at the back of the room. 3 mics, computer, and iPad going in. Worked great with the t4s IRead More...

Cant connect S1 to devices

Hi guys, i just bought the Bose S1 Pro 2 weeks ago and i have used it for only few times just for casual music listening. Recently i found out that the speaker wont connect to my phones (iphone and galaxy samsung) when it is on battery. My phones can’t detect S1’s bluetooth unless i plug my S1 into AC power. Once i disconnect the AC cable, the S1 loses the signal. I have tried to reset the speaker by removing the battery but no luck. Has anyone experienced the same problem?Read More...

Muting Aux out

For small gigs and bars I use the L1 compact in conjunction with the T4 tonematch mixer and I use an S1 as my personal monitor. Overall this works pretty well. I use the aux out send to my S1 and set my sends on the the aux. My problem is only muting. Once I have all my volumes right on the mixer and the S1 monitor to assure no feedback issues I realized there is no mute for the aux out . When I press all the the mutes all the instruments and mics are shut off to the main but the aux out...Read More...
Hi, Rory. Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. As Jeff K said, if you set the Aux Tap point to POST FADER, then muting the channels (CH MUTE buttons) will mute the Aux sends too. Here are some notes T4S Aux Outputs STRead More...

Add more bass power to my L1 Model 1S system

Hello everyone, i bought two L1 Model 1S B2. I usually play on weddings or local corporate party’s as a DJ. Mostly the bass power of the two b2 is enough. But sometimes i could use a little more. And i cannot attach another b2 to my L1 Model 1S . So my question is how I could ideally set up my system with an external active sub. A friend of mine offers me a tonematch t4s for sale which I could buy. Edit Subject: Previously "Add more bass power to my l1 model s system" and changed references...Read More...
Hi, Wolkenfeuer. I was just looking at your other discussion Tonematch useful for my uses? I see your source is a Native Instruments Traktor S4 You could get the T4S ToneMatch mixer.

Pan these Left and Right Use the T4S ToneMatch Presets and zEQ to enhance the sound from the Traktor Connect the T4S ToneMatch outputs (these are digital) to your L1 Model 1S systems Connect the T4S main outputs (these are analog) to your...Read More...

How to Daisy Chain 2 S1 pros to a L1 model 2 with a T1 or T8S?

Hi All, I’ve searched this forum to see if I could find the answer but I haven’t found it. Sorry if I missed it. I own S1 Pros (2), L1 model 2 (1), tone match mixers (1 T1 and 1 T8S). I use the T1 for acoustic gigs and the T8S for my band gigs. Sometimes I’ve had to use both mixers if we have guests come up. I would like to use the L1 as the main PA and daisy chain my S1 Pros to be used as monitors for my acoustic and band gigs. How do I achieve this? Thank you. RachelRead More...

Connecting 3 to 4 Multiple S1 Pro's Together

I'm just wondering if it's possible to connect 3 or even 4 of the S1 Bose Pro's together I already have two and LOVE them and connect them together for shows of up to 150 people and they fill the room beautifully. But for larger shows, I want to add a further 2 of them further up on either side of the room, to extend the sound, but without a mixer, in like a daisy chain (mono) setup. There's no issues in just connecting the 3rd and 4th speakers like I would the second one is there? (Just...Read More...
It is usual to delay the satellite speakers but you won't be able to do so without a mixer* so the sound will be compromised. * Or a suitable delay unit, digital mixers usually have something suitable onboard, analogue desks not so.Read More...

Grids on Garageband - Can’t find

Hey all, I have an issue going on with my Garageband app. I am a new user, & opening up the app, I am not able to find the grid or timeline with my tracks. Does anyone know the solution?Read More...
Okay @Juan Miller! I will do it. I think Garageband is not officially available for windows pc. BUT, you can use it by using some third party applications such as Vmwarw or Virtual Box. Both Apps are free and can be easily downloaded from internet. After that install GarageBand virtually on it. I found this step by step guide on it. Hope it might help you. Cheers!Read More...

Bose F1 Subwoofer vs QSC KS112 Subwoofer

DJ8X
So, I am an original QSC junkie. I sold my QSC rig to get the Bose F1 System. I needed to ditch the heavy 18inch sub and get lighter gear without sacrificing much output. I went to compare the QSC KS112 to the F1 Sub because..hey...it's QSC. I took a friend along with me that did not know much about brands or gear specs. I needed an unbiased ear because I know how much I loved my QSC gear, and how much I currently love my Bose System. Long story short, the QSC KS112 was louder and...Read More...
Awesome information........ I just picked up a pair of Bose F1's about a month ago...... I'm extremely happy with them. I did listen to the Bose subs and loved the nice solid tight punch of them. I have a passive 18" SP Peavey subcompact which has served me well over the years but, the bass isn't solid and tight like the Bose and/or other smaller woofers. I would love to trade up for at least one of those Bose subs over my Peavey.......... Thanks for sharing your test. Ray 👍👍😊Read More...

L1 compact improvements

The L1 compact has been around for several years. I myself have a L1C with tonematch mixer for a couple of years. I use it mostly for PA and karaoke applications.
