L1 Model II with new T8S

I've been one of those who wants more channels and it will be here soon in the T8S. I've read most of the post's for the 8 and was wondering is the fact there are more channels on the 8 the only new "stuff"? For example, how about more presets, i.e., I am an Korg PA4X Arranger player. One of the presets on the T1 was DJ, also no presets for the Heil microphones. Just wondering if any thought was given to more presets during the creation of the T8S? Edit title: Previously "L1 Model 11 with...Read More...

Global reverb type...

will a future firmware release get rid of the limiting “global reverb type for all channels”. I sing with sev real mics set up for easy acces to effects and the biggest P in the A is GLOBAL effects. Independent effects per channel as stated in the sales spec is what I want without plugging in external warts. Edit: Added tags — Bose Pro Community AdminRead More...
I just spoke with TUKI and they will make a soft padded case for T4S or 8.Read More...

S1 Pro Stopped Working

We just received our brand new Bose S1, ordered through Guitar Center, and used it daily for one week. Tonight it will not power on. We unplugged it for 10 minutes. Tried again with no luck. We tried a different outlet, no luck. We even tried an alternative power cord, no luck. It simply will not turn on for no apparent reason. Help! Is there anything else we can try? What is the process to get a replacement?Read More...
@Sksisme , did you ever resolve the issue? If you had a dead battery installed, it can take many hours to charge it back up to full.Read More...

Bose S1 Pro For Wedding Ceremony

DJ8X
I was seriously considering 2 Bose S1 Pro units for my wedding ceremonies. I'm on the fence but can't find enough Pros to offset the Cons acording to my application. I typically run 3 mics for ceremony but the S1 PRO has only 2 mic inputs. I would have to run an external mixer to accomplish my need. Also the additional price for the battery would put me greatly over the price of my current solution. If anyone is using this unit for the same type of application, I welcome any ideas or PROS...Read More...
Yes, I think one S1 would have covered this ceremony. However, I preferred two for the following reasons: 1.) It's not about volume; it's about presence or fullness of the sound. Two S1's provide that fuller presence at a lower volume level. 2.) Spreading the speakers provide better coverage for both sides of the seating area. 3.) Not knowing exactly what the layout of the area was before arriving, having two S1s gave me more options and better confidence about meeting site location...Read More...

Battery Questions

theonemanband
Hi........further to my earlier post praising my new S1 Pro;......... having used it a few times now, I have no reason to change my opinion that I am absolutely delighted with it!! However, as I will be using mainly outside, I do have a few BATTERY questions and hopefully, this may also be of help to others. 1. How long to fully charge on "trickle charge" (ball park figure)? 2. How long to fully charge on "fast charge (again, ball park figure)? 3. I understand the battery is a Lithium-Ion...Read More...

Reverb and effects on T4S

I hate my T1 with the “All channels” reverb setting meaning I can’t have different settings on different mics. I note the sales specs on the T4S state “Independent ToneMatch, EQ, dynamics and effects per channel” The very next statement was “Dedicated reverb on Aux 1 send, and a global shared reverb for use across all channels”. Does this mean what it says, no deviation from the T1 and I can’t set “Large” for mic 1 and “Cavern” for mic 2? If that is the case then “Global reverb” type is not...Read More...
Hi ScubaBadger, On the page you noted , in the bullet point above the text you quoted you will find the following Question and Answer. I have highlighted in blue, the relevant description of how Reverb works in the T4S/T8S mixers. Does the T4S/T8S ToneMatch mixer have built-in effects? What are some of the features and applications where they may be used? Yes. Below is a list of effects that users may independently assign/adjust for any or all channels. The user also enjoys discrete control...Read More...

Best mixer for L1 Model 1S (not ToneMatch)

bysava, thank you so much. This is what I always want to say, about this subject, and had given up. I opt to suggest what I've looked into, for one reason or another. End analysis, a Tonematch is hands down the simplest, best option.Read More...

Perfect Sound Solution for Retirement Community Gigs

Kevin Salyer
I've been entertaining full-time in retirement and care communities for six years, performing over 500 concerts/year. My audiences are older adults in venues ranging from living room type spaces (5-20 people) to small auditoriums (50-100 people). I've been waiting for a portable PA that would meet every one of my needs: - sound great, with a warm sound perfectly suited to my audience, many who have hearing loss, and some who have hearing sensitivity issues - small and lightweight (I gig 5/6...Read More...
A couple of quick pics from a recent gig. Audience of 50 in a small auditorium (dig that grooooovy curtain!). Single S1Pro on battery power with battery powered Shure wireless rig (that’s the receiver I’m holding, which is powered by two AAs). Plenty of power and great sound in a dead acoustic space. Rave responses from the audience.Read More...

Save parameter changes

With help from Bose Australia, I have been able to connect to the system, update the firmware and view the settings. I found the parameters (saved scenes) and I would like to increase the input gain for 2 new microphones. I was able to do this but I couldn't work out how to save it. Also I see there is a master input trim for each channel - would I be better off changing that, rather than saving each parameter? I have attached a screen shot of the system. I appreciate any advice, thank you.Read More...

Connecting T1-->T4S

Hello all! I didn't want to pull the trigger on my T4S, but I have 5-6 inputs now with my duo/trio acoustic act...and I'll use my T1 for home recording and vids. ANYWAY.... Wanted to ask the best setup here with your professional opinion(s): Inputs: 2 XLR MIC(phantom) 2 XLR Guitar(phantom) + 1 1/4 or XLR for a total of 5 inputs. Mixers: 1 T1 and 1 T4S Speakers: Bose L1 Model 1s and Compact (if needed) Please let me know what you all think! Also, what should the input be set at for the line...Read More...
Just an update: Gig went swimmingly well! It was a trio set up where we had the compact as a monitor behind us and then had to send a wet (final) signal to the house as they pump music throughout the entire establishment about 3-4 big rooms full and a patio. I set up as stated above, but in summary: T1: 1vox, 1 guitar and 1 fiddle (wet send from main) at main 12 o’clock—>T4 ch4 T4: 1vox, 2 guitars and received T1 wet into Ch4 T4: main out to house system XLR and Aux1 to compact.

Have a technical question. is there a difference in sound in the EQ settings between the Tone match T1 mixer in stereo setting on a dj controller And also in the T4 s or T8s dj setup. sound system is a bose 812 f1 system Thanks for the replyRead More...
Hi timeless entertainment, Thank you for this interesting question. There is no difference in the EQ settings between the T1®, T4S and T8S for the DJ Presets. The signal output from the T4S and T8S is higher than the T1®. This gives you the potential for higher output from the F1 Model 812 and better signal to noise ratio. Does that help? STRead More...

Connecting T4S Tonematch mixer to Bose S1 Pro

Is this possible, to connect my T4S Tonematch mixer to my Bose S1 Pro? I think the Bose S1 sounds fine by itself but I think there would be so many more options if I could connect the T4S. I am a solo singer and guitarist, and also a children's storyteller, and this would be great for smaller venues, coffee shops, etc. Thank you:)Read More...

L1 Compact owner, just added an S1 Pro-Stereo connection help

I'm a mobile DJ, and have owned the L1C for several years, and love it. With the advent of the S1 Pro, I thought it would be nice to use it connected to my mixer, with the L1 connected as either left or right, and the S1 on a stand connected as the opposite channel. 1) The mixer has RCA outputs, what would be the best way to wire this? 2) If stereo playback is really not the best use of my resources, what would be the best way to wire up the two PA systems to the mixer for best results?Read More...

L1 Model II expansion

I am using L1 Model II with B2 Base from some time. I want to expand the setup since I need more inputs and T1 tone match has only four. I am thinking of buying QSC TouchMix-16 16-Channel Compact Digital Mixer along with two Mackie SRM450 V3 High‑Definition Portable Powered speakers. Does anyone has any other recommendations on speakers and mixer that works well with T1 Tonematch along with L1 Model II?Read More...
Hi shaime, I think maybe we have same issue, but different approach to solving... In our band combo's I find that in larger settings, the Bose L1 fills the room fine, but is too loud to be behind our performers as a monitor at the same time. What we do is move the L1s forward to the front of stage (2 L1s, one on each side of stage), and then add in monitors for performers. With 2 or 3 performers, we can go without monitors because we can still hear each other, with more than 3, we need...Read More...

Speakers

I enjoy going out on weekends and listen to the local bands most of them are cover bands and one of the things I notice is the equipment that they are using expensive drum sets, guitars , amps, mixers etc. but the speakers or the microphones is an entirely different thing like an afterthought , Im not a sound guy I'm not a musician I'm not an expert but I know what I hear, when I started to get into music I had no idea that bose had a line of pa systems ,years ago I went to guitar centers to...Read More...

Roland AC-90 vs the L1 Compact

Can anyone compare the Roland AC-90 with the L1 Compact, as far as overall sound quality, controls (EQ, etc), and ups/downs (benefits/deficits) go? Does the fact that the L1 Compact has no EQ or effects like "chorus" and "reverb" (the Roland has those) make a difference in the "quality of the sound" or does Bose's "Tonematch" make up for that. Clearly, both systems are easy to carry and set up. Price points are not that different. Thanks.Read More...
I was editing that last post when the recycle truck clipped the telephone pole across the street and we lost power and internet. So I'll finish it now here ( too much time passed to edit above one now): I've used a BBE crossover with both the AC-60 and the Bose set up.I was blown away by what the AC-60 could do with only mids and highs passing thru those 6.5" speakers, and lows thru my EV sub .Can get pretty dang loud (louder than I ever play) cleanly and clearly,plus produces a stunning...Read More...

Band with 2 Compacts ??

We are a 3 piece R&R band - guitar, bass, drums. Play everywhere from restaurants to vineyards to private parties - inside & out. Been using 2 JBL815's Fronts & 1 JBL 15" Sub. Crowds from 50 to 200. I want to simplify my life & setup. Would love 2 L1 Model 2's with subs but not at $5,000. I'm afraid just one would not do the trick so I'm thinking 2 Bose Compacts. We can get plenty loud outside doing our ZZ stuff ... but calm inside. Need to broadcast 3 vocals, guitar &...Read More...
There's no reason to consider using B1s unless you already own them. The B2 is substantially more powerful and is equal to approximately four B1s (as ST said.) A single Model II with two B2s and a packlite amp is a modular, powerful and versatile system that will meet the needs you mentioned (50-200 people).Read More...

midi

From what I've read, it seems the effects, especially "tap tempo", are not addressable via USB midi. That is a huge fail if that's not available. Turning effects on and off remotely is a must. Going to the mixer to tap in tempo is downright silly!Read More...
Hi otis scarecroe, You're right, there no provision for USB-MIDI on the ToneMatch mixers. I agree, it would be more convenient to control some of the functions of the mixer with a footswitch.
