T1 Lower Kick Gate Threshold?

Hello Everyone! So a friend of mine has lent me his T1 Model II, and I'm actually digging it. We are using it as the sole amplification system for vocals in my extremely small jam space, and the compact size is amazing compared to my old 2X15 powered cab setup. Anyhow! Just last jam the bass player said he has trouble hearing the kick. I understand why as I use an 18X8 since there is no room to setup a proper size. I had the briliant idea to hook up my Beta 52A to the L1 just to boost up the...Read More...
Reporting in! So I switched out my 18" cannon kick for my 16" tom-kick. It was sounding fine on it's own but during practice I quickly realized that the kick sound was lost in the mix. I spent about 30 mins messing with presets, B2 levels , difference mics, and nothing helped. It seems that there is some sort of hard limiter with the B2 bass module. With very soft taps on the kick, the bass is quite loud and punchy, but once I bring it up to performance levels, the overall bass level seems...Read More...

S1 Pro Backpack - pictures!

ST
Hi Folks, I got my hands on an S1 Pro Backpack and took some pictures for you. Mug shot - The backpack is about 5 inches taller than the S1 Pro. Top down view. It's nice and compact, not much bigger than the S1 Pro. Top section open - inside flap (right side) closed. Top section open - inside flap open. Top open. You can see the cables now. I forgot to pack the T4S power supply. But I checked later, and it does fit. Total in the Back Pack, S1 Pro AC Power Cord T4S ToneMatch power supply...Read More...

T4S ToneMatch Mixer carry case ideas

ST
Hi, How are you carrying your T4S? Do you have an old laptop computer bag? The microphone cases fit in there nicely on either side. Under that flap is a generous pocket for cables and accessories. If necessary, this is big enough for the ToneMatch Power Supply. Here is the view from the top. And there's another generous pocket on the back. You're probably wondering where all the cables are. I have them strapped to my microphone stand. This is an older picture. I have a different mount for...Read More...
Hi Víctor i had a local seamstress make it for me for €35 ($40). My T4 is in that, then sunk in pick n pluck foam inside a Pelli case wither radio mic and receiver in their own pockets too. hope that helpsRead More...

T8S Reverb doesnt sound as good as on T1 at all

Daniel Blohm
Hi. Since i really love my T1 mixer and I really needed more channels, I "uppgraded" to T8S, and have now tested it booth live and compared it side by side to the T1. Here are my thoughts and questions: The sound without effects is very close, but I do feel that I can hear some small differences in the preamps. Little more defined in the highs and lows compared to the T1. But they do sound very similar. I tried to copy all the settings from my T1 that always sounded great in every...Read More...

T-1 Tone Match PreAmp Outs 1-3 saturating my external recording device

I'm trying to record multiple separate tracks live from the T-1 Tone Match outputs for channels 1-3, going into 3 separate tracks into a Tascam Zoom H-5 Porta Studio. The Zoom 5 successfully records 3 separate tracks but the t-1 output levels are overwhelming the busses in the H-5 making it extremely difficult to get balanced recording tracks. I'm having to set the H-5 recording levels between 2 and 3 and the slightest adjustment has an extreme effect of the recording volume. It seems like I...Read More...

Using the S1 Pro with Bose Connect App

I stumbled upon a YouTube video uploaded by Bose Professional showcasing the S1 and at the end the guy demonstrates using the S1 with the mobile Bose Connect app for mono or stereo Bluetooth streaming. I cannot find my S1s using the app and the S1 isn’t even listed as a supported device within the app. Has anyone seen this and figured it out? Here’s a link to the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/C1NaRpSrxLARead More...

T8S carry case/bag?

I am expecting delivery of the T8S this week. What are you using to protect it during transport? I know it comes with a plastic cover, but so does the T1. But the T1 also has a canvas cover to protect it. It doesn’t look like the T8S has that. Why? What are T8S users using? I’m concerned about banging/scratching it up when traveling to gigs and practice. Is Bose planning to design a cover? I’d appreciate any ideas others have. Thanks, DaveRead More...

S1 Pro system, battery included, slip cover not (May 2018)

I ordered an S1 when it became available with the battery. Note that the S1 no longer comes with a cover - I was disappointed that Bose chose to delete this when they decided to include the battery. Even if the cover is considered "just a dust cover," it is some protection while carting the S1 around or when it is not being used. I hope Bose will reconsider this. The S1 is a great small PA that is perfect for taking out - why delete ANY kind of protection for it?? Is there any way current...Read More...

QSC K and KW series have an option for "thru" (pre-volume) or mix. My Fishman gear has that as well. (Yamaha varies a bit by series.) A typical use for the "Thru" output would be XLR from mixer to 812 #1 and XLR from 812 #1 to 812 #2. Since the output is volume dependent, will setting volume on both units at the +0 position yield equal volume in this configuration?? I would have much preferred the option to mix or send at least a single input to "Thru". Just got F1 system unboxed and don't...Read More...

I ordered my S1 Pro at my favourite music store (Long & McQuade) in the Toronto area on May 25th. Today I discovered that the expected delivery date is June 11th. That was disappointing. I didn't expect such a long wait. Anyone else have that experience - Canada and the US?Read More...

T4S Channels 5/6 volume control

Am I right in thinking rapid access to volume control on channels 5/6 is buried under: Master rotary set to Pan/Aux>Menu>Aux In>5 LVL & 6LVL ? If that is true - on a live stage monitoring mic volumes, effects and then overall volume changes of individual tracks coming in off an iPad / Tablet or mobile is going to be a nightmare I hadn't anticipated. The ability to "PAN" channels left and right, I understand. Two separate volume controls for a stereo signal in is in my view...Read More...

Equipment: Bose f1 system (2 tops, 2 subs) T1 Tonematch T1 Power Supply Iphone/Macbook pro Hi Guys! Nice to be back! I've recently been asked if I could set up the F1's for a wedding party of about 150 people. I've never done this before but I said I would regardless. (just some simple spotify playlist stuff) My question is how is this done using the T1 and would I need some sort of splitter 1/4 jack stereo cable to minijack to connect to my iPhone/macbook from the Tonematch? I've seen and...Read More...
Hi Kevin, Easy fix! It's okay - but you lose the ability to use the Master Volume control on the T1®, so do what works best for you. It's all up to you. It may not be necessary to have the output volumes equal. Not all rooms or settings are symetrical. Any time Kevin. STRead More...

Aux In channels on the T8S question

snakehips
Hi ST, Just after a wee bit helping understanding the intricacies of using the Aux In channel(s) with a T1 Tonematch. I have a gig on Friday - and it will be in a packed pub with not too much time to set up all our gear (there is a lot !). There are only 3 of us so don’t panic when you see what we are plugging into our Bose L1mk2 plus two B1’s. Depending on space, I may add in a powered PA speaker or two (Yamaha DXR12’s), but adding those in or not doesn’t cause me much confusion, although I...Read More...

Newbie here in the world of compact PA's. I just ordered a L1 Compact and a TC Helicon Play Acoustic. One vocal/ one acoustic guitar is all I plan on using this system for... Can I get a decent mix prior to going out of the mono output to the L1 Compact ? Or Do I really need to think about getting the tonematch mixer or some other type of mixer ( Mackie, etc) to interface with the Compact? Anyone out there can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it.Read More...
Hi DWR, I don't use the range below 12:00 o'clock unless I've got a loud input source (e.g. mixer) or I'm in a very quiet room. Check out pages 57-58 in the TC-Helicon manual. Try turning up the output level of the TC-Helicon unit. This will let you run the L1® at a lower setting on the L1®. The L1 Compact isn't set up like a typical PA. The power amps are always running at 100%. The volume controls are more like a combination of trim/control. STRead More...

Multiple F1 Systems

Hi, I have used 4 F1 systems FOH including 620M's and 502A's side fill at a recent Jazz and Blues Festival. I tried a few configurations and settled on 3x 812's stacked outside, 4 subs side by side next to the stack and 2 812's stacked in the center. The stage was 60cm high and the speakers were on the grass. We had a 12m x 30m marquee. The system was LCR utilizing the built in xovers. Soundcraft Impact desk. The center 2x 812's were great. More presence. All components were connected in...Read More...
Greg, Thanks for your purchase of the F1 812 and Sub. You ask some good questions above – let me see if I can answer some of them…. “Do Not Stack the Subs” A close look at the cabinet configuration would indicate that there are no stacking cups or built in cabinet features to “Lock” these speakers together when they are stacked. The thought of doing that was outside the product development team’s vision of having a compact speaker/sub for both sides of the stage. The bottoms of the subs are...Read More...

Using Samson XP1000 with L1S1B2

For small venues I attach the mixer alone to the L1S1 using a 1/4" cable running from my monitor/mono output. For larger venues I also use the 500Watt speakers with the Samson XP on the sides for output as well as monitors for singers and other musicians/drummer. The gain can never be raised above 2 or I get feedback. This means I have to max the volume out on my mixer (which is powered btw and powers the 500 watt speakers) leaving little room for increase. I don't want to purchase the...Read More...
Seconded. The B2 is fantastic. I have one but I also bought a used B1 for when only vocal, piano, sax and or guitar go through the PA. It also makes a good, compact bass guitar cabinet. Your health and wellbeing come first. 1 or 2 B1s might actually be a better option for you than one B2, lighter and more balanced to carry and still able to project a surprising amount of bass if EQ'd correctly - a lot of what is recognised as deep bass impact is actually in the 60-80 HZ range.Read More...

Volume surge with L2 Model 1S

Was playing a gig the other night and my Bose would suddenly have a volume surge. I would then reduce the main volume and bring it back up and volume would go back to normal and then shortly after it would surge again. This happened multiple times over the course of a few hours. Anyone else experience this? I'm using the ToneMatch with Sure SM58s mics in line 1 and 2 and an acoustic guitar in line 4. When the volume would surge it also had an increase in treble which made it sound not only...Read More...
The same thing used to occur with my band at one of the markets we play that has an L1 1s. The Bose would sound slightly "muddy" for the first 1/2 hour to 3/4 of an hour and then the volume would suddenly increase to full "normal" volume and eq. with accompanying feedback - ACK! Then we'd have to jump onto the master fader and pull it down. It operated normally from then on. Since we had a very long distance and needed 2 long A/C cords to get from the plug to the stage we suspected a voltage...Read More...

Use B1's as supplementary subwoofer

Have an L1 model 2 w 2 B1 subs and a T1 Tonematch. I'd like to use the B1 sub capabilities with my home theatre. I'd think I could run the receiver/amp sub out to a T1 channel IN. Then I could use the T1 to dial back all but the sub frequencies. Then MUTE the other channels. Anyone have such settings they could share? Thanks.Read More...
Thanks ST. I'll give it a try later today. I did make one major description error. The amp does not have a sub out, just a direct out. Therefore there's likely no pre-EQ. I have been getting my sub bass through a speaker center channel using an "old but still accurate" Acoustimass 5 set (bought WAY back in the 90's). I'd like to get more bass. The B1's seemed a logical source, without driving the tower. That's why I was thinking of trimming the frequencies with the T1. AND I could save those...Read More...
