Hi there ,I just got the system a month ago ( imagine my delight to find out that a new model has just become available with many of the features that the system I have lacks.. but thats another discussion!)and like many of the others have found the set up is just too tall for many country pubs etc. and instead of frightening the audience with any "leaning tower" back drops I've noticed that there are outputs which can be used with other speakers. From what I gather these outputs shouldn't be used when the "tower" is in position but if at one of these vertically challenged gigs I decide to use the base with another speaker what do I need to do? Should I use a passive or active speaker? Should it be an 8 or 4 ogham? Can I just use one speaker? Any advice or options others have tried would be welcome.. thanks
I was curious about this same thing a while back. I have a couple of Bose 402 speakers that are 8 ohm and a reasonable match for the PS1 output.
I tried them at home by connecting to the AMP 1 and AMP 2 output. (You are correct, but let me state again "do not use AMP outs when the L1 sections are connected")
As things turned out the venue I was thinking I might use them in decided they couldn't afford me so I never put the idea to a real test.
It's not the same with any other speaker. The system will function and you probably won't hurt anything with 8 ohm speakers, but you won't get the same sound or coverage.
You can use just the lower half of the column ... that may work well for smaller rooms, particularly if you elevate the PS/1 a bit (of course, not enough to make it "too tall" again ).
I'd go with the lighter weight of unpowered speakers.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Dan Cornett,
thanks for the help...I think I'll try the half mast approach next time and see what happens
