S1 Pro channel 3 has too much bass

I have found that the 3rd input has too much bassRead More...
I’m now at ease to finally read some closure on this topic. I thank you guys for at least doing some testing. Maybe on the next model there can be an outdoor mode switch of some kind, a low end frequency cut or even a “top end” switch like an 812Read More...

T8S settings for F1 System FOH

Hi people, I own BOSE F1 Systems and I plan to buy a T8S mixer. Would anyone explain step by step the T8S settings/tricks for F1 System FOH. I have never used BOSE Tonematch mixer before. I downloaded T8S manual but did not find use details with F1 Systems ThanksRead More...
Hi AdamT, If you want to maintain the stereo image, use the internal processing (Presets, EQ, effects), and have physical controls for the volume, then connect the 1/4" Tip-Sleeve connectors to two channels from one through eight. (e.g. channels 7 and 8) If you don't need the internal processing or physical controls for volume, then connect the 1/4" Tip-Sleeve connectors to the Aux Inputs (9 and 10). If you don't need the stereo separation then you can save a channel by changing the source...Read More...

Flying with the S1

Oldghm
Hi ST, In researching flying with carry on baggage, it appears the S1 is too large to fit inside a bag designed for overhead bins. Not sure if it will travel under the seat, but I don't think so. The battery is another issue. I wonder if Bose has any information on the subject. O..Read More...
Hi rahul bhattacharyya, Thank you for joining our community. I'm glad you are here. Congratulations on getting you Bose S1 Pro system. How wonderful that conversation was useful for you. I hope you find the battery useful. While it's unfortunate you didn't get the slip cover, the battery will let you use the S1 Pro system in all kinds of situations that otherwise wouldn't be available to you. As of May 10, 2018 Bose included the battery and no longer included the slip-cover in the price. The...Read More...

L1 II in smaller venues??

I know the L1 II is designed for audiences up to 500 and is great outdoors, but how does it perform in indoor smaller venues in the 50 to 100 person range? Anyone with experience to share?Read More...

Hi Everyone, I'm starting a new discussion to provide the Bose reply to this question Answer: The output level of the guitar is louder than the output level of the microphone. That's why we have to turn up the microphone higher. This is how my S1 Pro looks most of the time. The microphone is connected to channel 1 and the guitar is connected to channel 2. More information: There’s been a lot of discussion here lately about Unity gain The center détente is unity Not enough reaction to the...Read More...
Hello! New user here, impressed with the S1, but a little confused with the volume/output behavior of the unit. Please see this new discussion: S1 Pro not loud enough with guitar amp modeler Thank you.Read More...

S1 Pro switch quesiton...

Archtop Eddy
Anyone know if it's it okay to leave the S1Pro in the "first" or battery-charge position rather than in the "second/middle" off position when not in use? I ask this because by putting it in the first position you take less of a risk that it might accidentally switch on while in transport mode when moving about in the car. This could potentially save you from unintentionally draining down the battery.Read More...
thank you for your informations! it happend to me allready twice, that the power-switch went ON while in transport mode :-( good to know, that moving the switch down to fast charge position doesn't drain out the battery! btw: i am quite suprised, that BOSE did set the switches this way.Read More...

Feedback Solutions?

I am a keyboard player/vocalist fronting a trio with 2 other vocalists (guitar and drummer...both of whom use a separate PA). My Roland KB (FP-7F) has a variety of mixer-like functions (mic reverb/harmony type & levels), EQ, master gain, etc.). I use an SM-58 mic directly into the KB's 1/4" mic port and out to the L1's channel 2 enabling both keys and vocals/harmonies. Since we play in smaller venues, I am often unable to have the L1 a sufficient distance behind me in any position thus...Read More...

Flexibility! Flexibility! Flexibility!

jdbassentertainment.com
I have owned the S1 Pros for a very short time (just over two months) and I am truly amazed by their extremely flexible nature! I keep finding new ways to use them... Here are a couple of recent gig pics! The first one shows the S1 Pro being used for a PA for a wedding ceremony with 75 guests... worked great! The other pictures show how I used a S1 Pro to provide sound in the bar during the cocktail hour at the same time also playing music in the dinning area for those who didn't want to...Read More...
Could not agree more JD, I finally had a chance to have a few outdoors gigs with S1s and F1, will report soon- Excellent results!Read More...

Recording with Zoom H4n

Trying to find the best way hook up the T1 and Zoom H4n for recording.Read More...
This is actually an interesting topic for me. I am using a Zoom Q4n for video and the audio is always quite excellent in volume, tone, and fullness. However, regardless of X-Y positioning, the ambient noise is sometimes a little too much....and sometimes a LOT too much. Crowd noise further back can ruin an otherwise good video. On the other hand, line out to direct line in removes all ambient sound and doesn't have a realistic but full an accurate quality result. Therefore I have just...Read More...

AUX-volume!

Hi! My (second) brand new S1 Pro is having some kind of problem with the aux-volume knob. When I turn up and down the volume there´s interruptions in the sound. It´s not smooth..... watch my video to hear https://youtu.be/BP_O0fie2o0 Anyone else experiencing this?Read More...
Hi Papamotif, We have studied your video and investigated things here too. From Bose: The S1 Pro has a digital gain knob on channel 3 which is divided into incremental steps. When you slowly turn the volume knob up with a strong input signal present, you may hear steps in loudness. These steps in loudness are not a symptom of a fault or malfunction in the S1 Pro. The steps in loudness you hear in your video should not affect your ability use the unit to play music through channel 3. Thank...Read More...

Basic S1 Set Up

I’ve been looking for a portable battery powered PA for small intimate gigs. I’ve been looking specifically at the Roland Street Cube EX. Now that we have the Bose S1 Pro thrown into the mix. I have a few questions. I’ve read many reviews on the S1. Seems a lot of folks are going through other amps, mixers and pedals before going to the S1. The use of these external devices add color to your final output, the speaker (S1 in this case). Also, most of these external devices need external...Read More...
That's impressive. Thanks for sharing.Read More...

getting the right sound

Hi, I have an L1 system and a recently bought pair of f1812s with subs. I play live on a Yamaha EL900 Synth/organ and play bass on touch sense pedalboard. I use a live drummer (kick & Snare miked) I use an SM58 for my vocals and everything is channeled through a Mackie analog desk. I feel I should be getting a deep tight bass from the organ and kick drum but this is not the case. The green light on the back of the subs barely lights up and the 812s function as they should. I wire...Read More...
Hi Angus, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. It sounds like you need to raise the output from the Mackie desk. Things to try: Turn up the outputs on the Mackie desk until the outputs are just below clipping If there is a MIC/LINE switch on the back, set it to MIC. Does that help? If not, try routing the output of the Mackie desk to the F1 812 inputs, and take the F1 812 Line Outs to the F1 Subwoofers. Please let us know if that helps. Thanks, STRead More...

L1 help

What L1 to buy, and how many

I have a small 4 person group. Two guitars, 1 bass and drums. We play at small clubs and bars (less than 200 people) and rarely outside. I play electric lead and acoustic guitar. My electric is a magnetic and piezo setup (Carvin SH6 dual output) and I also use a electric/acoustic piezo only guitar. The second player sings and uses a Carvin AE185 (dual output electric and acoustic). Both of the guitar players run two cords out of our guitars. Each to our own separate electric and acoustic...Read More...
