Broken end caps

hi, while being transported the end plastic caps of the L1 model 2 got damaged as they were not in their carrying cases. The plastic ends need to replaced as now the connection plugs have to connected manually then slid into position. Can these end caps and plugs be replaced. The rest of the system is perfect.Read More...
Thanks again. It's unfortunate that Bose cannot tell a customer what size, type, and who manufactures the piece in the pic I posted. I don't understand why Bose would not release the "engineering detail" of these pieces. My question seems simple - Where do you get these things? I did contact Bose and they are sending me a replacement for the entire end cap. The only problem with that is the Bose rep said he was not sure if the end cap assembly comes with the brass inserts. Finally, I...Read More...

Added Speakers to the L1-Compact

I keep reading that folks are creating ways to change the speaker set up and or add additional speakers to the L1 Compact system. Is there any advantage to adding speakers to the L1 Compact or is there a danger of harming the amplifier by doing so? What advantage would someone have versus jus setting up another unit? Just curious - I keep reading blogs where folks talk about making upgrades to the compact unit? Is doing so an upgrade or a malfunction waiting to happen?Read More...

Poor acoustic guitar sound

Forum: Solo Acts
Hi I hope somebody can please help! I have a top end OM acoustic guitar fitted with both a LR Baggs Active Element pickup and a K&K Pure Western Mini (Dual source configuration, but I can use either pickup on its' own if necessary) I am pulling my hair out trying to get a decent sound through my L1 Model 2 with B2 Bass and T1 mixer. The sound is incredibly thin and harsh, with the higher frequencies sounding particularly awful. There is no richness or "shimmer" to the sound at all. Just...Read More...

T1 mic stand mount

tomdavisdotcom
Back in 2010 I bought one and broke it on the first use-- the plastic nub that the clamp grabbed on to. I thought I later read that Bose strengthened them. So I bought one a couple weeks ago. Six uses in, the pin broke (like a watch strap pin). Was fitted perfectly to my mic stand -, too. Just barely snug... Should I try again. A phenomenally terrible designRead More...

HELP what is going on with my T1 Tone Match (Solved)

So I was going through my Scenes to pick a preset and once I clicked on it the system made a loud pop and no sound came out and now when a scroll through the Scenes Menu the text is all messed up and scattered (See in photos). Every other menu works fine and once I load factory settings it still sounds fine. But the text still screws up every time I scroll through the Scenes menu. Is there anyway to hard reset the system? How long does it take for something like this to get repaired? Please...Read More...
had a very similiar problem with my Tonematch about 12 months ago. It's a good idea to save your tailored scenes onto a backup file so you can easily restore them. It hasn't happened since.Read More...

Bose f1 + l1 suggestion

Hello ! Can anyone tell me wich setup is louder : 1* L1m2/b2 + 4* F1 stacks... or 2*L1m2/b2 + 2 *F1 stacks ? Ps: we are a 4 member band performing live music ( vocal,keyboard,sax,accordion) and only the keyboard stays on the stage when we are performing;),the vocals and other instruments are in the dancing crowd,and they need to hear themselves. Thank you!Read More...
I could...if they were wireless ) but I really have to keep them in front of the stage to avoid damaging the wires. I suppose that 2 more 812 would be better than one column...?Read More...

L1 Compact for acoustic duo

Hi All, I guess I need a piece of advice from you guys. I own one L1 Compact that I used a couple of years ago for small solo gigs, mostly in hotels. It did very well there. This summer I plan to do a couple of gigs with another musician. These would be mostly open air gigs with audiences of up to 100 people. Locations, where we should play, are bar terraces of 15x15 meters at most, where people mostly sit at their tables. Gigs shouldn't be too loud, but loud enough to be above the level of...Read More...

Outputting L1 Model II to house sound systems

Hi. I've been using my L1 Mode 2 for a few years now and love it. My only issues have always been in small spaces cranking the system up high enough without feedback as I am using it as intended as monitor and PA. In the interim, I've done a few gigs in restaurants/bars that have high spec sounds systems and you can connect what looks like an XLR. The input on wall is female. I've not tried out yet as didn't have right cable. What's the best cable to get to connect and try that out? Is it a...Read More...

Setting up sax with a To emaster T1

Hi just got a Bose L1 1S and Tonemaster. Absolutely hate the reverb settings, sounds really artificial and too many variables. I found my Fender Passport much easier to use- just turn the reverb up if playing for lots of people in a sound -dead environment. Simple and unfussy. can someone please offer me some guidance to get the best out of my new setup. I play backing tracks and use a AT remote clip on. The sax sounds somewhat "disconnected" from the backing track, like its not properly...Read More...
Hi Phil, We should have presets in the system for alto, tenor, and soprano saxes. Can you please double check that you're only seeing Trumpet? Trumpet is the first item in the list, but once you open up the preset list, you'll see the saxes and a couple of trombone presets. Regarding the effect varying with your playing volume - are you saying the volume level of the reverb changed or the length of the reverb changed? It's normal for the level to change with the input of course, but not...Read More...

L1 Model 1 suitability

Hi, New to these forums and looking for some advice, hope i've posted under the right topic. I depped for a band couple years back on NYE using the Model 2 L1 with B2 bass and was blown away. Unfortunately, i've not been able to afford to buy them but recently a pair of L1 model 1 with 4 B1 bass units became available to me for an affordable price. My question is this, we currently run Mackie SRM 450s for our front of house with floor wedges for monitors. We're a 5 piece wedding band, x2...Read More...
Not to add confusion, but I usually run my 2 L1's (Mod II's now, but Classics previously) as L/R PA speakers in front of the band. In the 10+ years I've been using them, I've rarely been in a venue that allows enough room behind the band for proper recommended placement. For the size crowds you mentioned (2-500), that's a pretty big room to cover. In the few places I was able to try the towers behind us, the volume needed to reach the back of a room was killing us in stage (the band always...Read More...

L1M2 setup for a visiting DJ

Hello all, after using my whole workday for browsing a million different sites and countless google searches I have to make sure I have understood everything. I got an event coming up, where DJ is coming to play using my L2m2 speaker/sub combo with his DJ board. After researching we have landed on the following setup: We connect his Numark NV2 board to L2 base with ONE female XLR - male TRS to analog input slot. We also set his signal to MONO from his Serato DJ software to avoid problems...Read More...

Looping Monitors into the F1s

Hi, I play in a Pink Floyd 4 piece cover band (Midnight-Floyd.com) and we had very mixed results with the F1s for various reasons. One of the issues we have a lot is feedback because we often loop 2 600w Harbingers between the 812s and the mixer. So the chain is currently: Mixer XAir18 -> Sennheiser In Ear Monitor Transmitter -> Harbinger Monitor -> F1 812 -> F1 Sub. We are all plugged into the mixer (Digital drum set, bass direct in, Kemper profiling amp, keys, mics) The reason...Read More...
More in common, my band is all digital and direct to board as well. I wasn't worried about the low end being filtered out of the monitors due to the crossover between the 812 and the sub, in fact I was hoping it would be. The frequencies that the subs put out are omni directional and can be heard as well behind the speaker as in front. If the monitors don't have to try to put out those low frequencies it's less taxing on them. Ideally they would just reproduce what the 812s are doing but ST...Read More...

A secondary mount for the F1 812

Litesnsirens
I wonder what it would take to get Bose to create a really short version of the mounts that they currently supply. In case it's not clear what I'm talking about, I'm referring to the stand that is housed in the F1 Sub that clicks into the sub and then the 812 sits on top of it. Is there a specific name for that? It would have made this post easier! Anyway my thought is, if Bose made some super short ones, there would be an option to have the 812s sitting almost directly on top of the sub. So...Read More...
I don't think there'd be any phasing issues based on the height of the 812s to the subs. They're crossed over, no competing frequencies. I'm sure there was some logic to the decided height of the system as designed and likely some sonic benefit in most situations. My guess is that it would relate to the angles of the flex array among other things. That said, the 812s can be separately mounted on poles at any height and sound just fine. I'm with you though, I'd love to see some feedback from...Read More...

Acceptable Noise Level,

New Owner here with L1M and T1 WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF MY NOISE PROBLEM Questions: The noise level of the L1 S1 unit seems excessive with the power base trim set at 12 o'clock (5). Why is it NOT necessary to increase the trim from zero when playing music via usb from the computer? There is a lot of head room with the volume. AND no noise at low or high volumes. Details: I set up the system when it arrived and was disappointed with the noise level delivered by the system. Output noise sounded...Read More...

Tonematch problem

S70XS_user
Hi, Question for ST I am using the Tonematch with L1 M2 and B1. My keyboard supports balanced audio, and I was running a single TRS into ch4 of the Tonematch. That was the only input connected to the T1. During my rehearsal session, I lost all sound from the L1 whilst playing a song - I tested everything, output port from the keyboard, swapped audio leads, etc and the penny dropped when I bypassed the T1 and plugged the audio lead into the L1M2 base analog input and it worked fine. Clearly a...Read More...
