Thanks for reading my post. I am seriously thinking of purchasing an L1 Model II for our band. We currently have the 'normal' setup. craown amp, effects, 2 JBL's, 3 stage monitors. Our band is singer/keys, Guitar, Bass and Drummer. We don't have much money as we're just hobbyists that play 4 shows a year 75-100 people. Will this set up work?..Through L1...singer, 2nd vocals, keys, acoustic guitar. Bass and electris guitar through their own amps(I switch between Acoustic and Elctric)and drums. Can we put one Model II behind us and will this work as a monitor and main speakers? We cannot afford two of these but love the idea of just needing one. Thanks for your help
Hi sugaragus, and welcome to the forum.
Yes, a single Model II would do you just fine if you can keep instruments and drummer at a reasonable level.
Not as easy a task as you might think, when you initially make the switch.
If you are all on the same page, wanting simplicity and clean, clear sound, and really want to make it work, it will work.
All you have to do is keep your instruments behind the vocals and the acoustic, it shouldn't be too hard.
You will all very much enjoy being in the L1's sound field, there is nothing like it.
I have done numerous gigs with groups like yours and everyone has been happy, players & audience.
Normally, I will use two or more L1s, but one can work well in your particular situation.
I would highly recommend buying a system that includes the T1 Tonematch engine (mixer).
The built in presets will help you get the most volume from the vocal mic.
Using close mic'ing technique on the vocals will be a must, if you are already doing that, great.
Where are you located?
Is there anyone who can give you a demo of the system?
There are a number of guys in the US (like me) who do just that.
I have to agree with Drumr. I am pretty new to Bose, but own a Model II and use it for an open mic night with pretty much the same set up you are looking to do. The T1 is an awsome addition to the the L1 and I think people have found them great with many other applications. I would also recomend a second B1 bass bin for these too. This could just be my personal preferrance though. I like bass.
I'm about 30 miles west of Chicago. I actually bought one through a music store. I demo the compact and it sounded pretty good so figured the other models had to be great. I ordered the Model I and then called the next day to change to the Model II but it already shipped out. I am hoping to get it tomorrow. I will now need to order the T1 which i plan on doing. From what I read, it may be better with the Model I since I can get 7 total inputs(4 from T1 and other 3). Your reply says we need to keep instruments behind vocals and acoustic? Does that mean so they can hear everything? or is that for feedback? It's a small stage so I am hoping to make this work as I am sick of monitors and bringing so much equipment. Like you said, gotta keep stage volume way down...just gotta convince the drummer of that. I'm hoping the music will still mix well with only vocals, keys and sometimes acoustic through that. everything else will be it's own amp. Quick question...how would I even use another one of these since it's only vocals, keys and acoustic going through it. What would I plug into the other one? Thanks for the demo offer...if I knew that was a possibility I would've taken you up on it
