I still like the part when Jazzhorn1 (Ken Bausano) says "I had been unable to describe adequately the problems I felt, because the state of technology over the past 30 years had been unyielding in how it described it's answers."

There's a lot of great info in here about how bass and how the System works (B1s, crossovers, EQ).

ST, you are just too cool! You are so right on in you choices dude! This page is so totally fun. I think this page would help to convert or convicne a lot of people. It sure pushes me onward to get my mula thing together and pickup a Bose.
Wow ST - I would have never expected to see my Rocker guy in a highlights list - THANKS very much man!
MIKE (who just bought my SECOND system yesterday - it feels great!)
This was one of my favorite posts of the year:
I'd have to add ST's "unofficial user's guide" to the list. That thing rocks!
Cool choices for sure.
I'm glad ST posted the Big Sur Natives photo on this thread,
I hope some of you guys get to see the Big Sur Natives phenomena one of these days. Not only to hear Joseph do his really cool cultural/trance/psychedelic thing with his synth and Godin through his Bose, but to actually catch the show. The girls are really serious about their dancing and to top it off, most of them are total eye candy. It's mesmerizing! After the girls dance, then the audience just goes crazy dancing freestyle~~it's a total trip!
Two guys who play in the band with me, went down the coast to catch the Natives show on the mountain top last month. They said it was the final straw in the hat and that now they have to save up to get their very own Bose systems too. (One's a keyboard player and the other has a set of V-drums).
They said that the Big Sur Natives had five Bose systems. Four with two woofers each. Joseph being the only melodic instrument and the rest percussionists.
They said the drums all playing at once, going through all the systems sounded like a huge, thunderous tribe. That it's an unbelievable experience. You can feel the beat just sink into your bones and can't help but feel it throughout your entire body. (Man, and I missed it dude! :-(
As Steve said: Don't forget ST's "Unofficial User's Guide'. This is definitely the #1 highlight on the Bose Forum (IMHO). It has helped all of us out at one time or another... No doubt that every new member on this forum has spent some quality time there...
Continual Kudo's to ST for all he does...
Alan Steinberger blows my mind. He's obviously a top of the line studio cat. Intentionally watched a rerun of the Tonight show just to see and hear him playing behind Arron Neville.That was so great!! Not to mention, the 'March of the Penguins' sound track. You can't be a lightweight and pull that off. Not only does it take the ability to play and read well, but Alan's sensitivity of interpretation was very touching.
And thanks to Lydian for talking about the Big Sur Native performances... yep it's true... we will use up to five PAS systems at a concert these days. And yes, the girl dancers aren't just flaunting their attributes, many of them continual on to be professional dancers. Some of the older ones already have been and/or still are in the dance business...
If anybody's planning on coming to Monterey... let me know... chances are I'll be playing through the Bose somewhere around here and ya might like to stop in...
Hope everyone here, on this very thoughtful and considerate forum, has a great New Year...
Man! Just imagine being in Alan's shoes.
Oh dude, to only be that accomplished of a player. Because of this thread in particular, I watched "March of the Penguin's" the other night and found myself rewinding the parts where Alan's piano playing stands out. Really, really beautiful stuff.
Joseph, maybe you can post where and when the Big Sur Natives are playing next? I would like to bring a bunch of folk (females included this time) to dance and check you guys out. I bet there's other Bose forum folk in your locale who might read this and also want to attend.
And speaking of females, another question for Joseph~~Do you ever gig with the female singer in the picture and on those clips anymore? I caught you twice with her in the past but haven't heard about your 'Lucidology' group in a long time.
And a question for ST? Do you have any clips of your band you could share with us? Would love to hear that 513 in action.
Thanks for the lovely words, guys. I'm lucky to have some extraordinarily talented friends.
I'm going to have to take a trip up to Monterey one of these days and check out Big Sur Natives or one of Joseph's other bands! Somebody want to organize a West Coast Bose-o's get-together?

Does the phrase "and remove all doubt" hold any resonance for you?
To avoid cluttering up this thread, thoughts on a West Coast get-together are continued here.
