I have an Alesis electronic drum kit I am not sure if I should purchase The Li compact system or the L1 system with the optional bass module. I am playing in a small hall with the capacity of 100 people. which L1 system would be better
Hi, denpa! Welcome to your first post on this L1 forum.
If I were a drummer, and I wanted to created a sound as close to an acoustic drum set as possible, I'd go with a larger L1 with TWO B1's.
No question about 2 B1's. One B1 should only be used as a transition until you can acquire a 2nd B1.
The Compact can be a backup/fallback for small rooms (might make a great rehearsal system, for example), but it really needs help for the bottom end. While a powered bass can be added to the Compact, I would guess most drummers would be happiest with a full-size L1 and 2 B1's -- and some would tell you that 4 B1's (adding a Packlite and 2 B1's) is the only way to go.
Our church drum kit uses 2 B1's with an L1 Model 2 via a Roland TD20, and the drummer is satisfied. There is seating for ~85 people (albeit the fire-marshal capacity is 120 -- that's SRO!).
thanks for your help. I took my alesis drum module into the bose store and tried it with the compact unit and the l2 unit one suggestion from the bose store was to run two compact system but your solution sounds better my main concern is getting good bass out of the kick drum
GO WITH EITHER MODEL I OR MODEL II They can use 1 or 2 bass modules and sound good in small and medium size venues. You will also have the option to add more bass modules if needed with the optional Packlite. I usually use 2 subs with my TD-20 unless I am in a larger venue or outdoors then I will use 4 subs 2 with the bose and 2 with the packlite. You will also have a bass line out which the compact does not have. I hope this helps. Thumper
The person who suggested that was thinking of stereo, which you don't need as much as you need low end.
By all means go with a bigger system.
Do you also have acoustic drums?
If you ever will, the T1 Tonematch has a built in kick drum gate that allows you to get lots of volume on your bass drum.
It is a godsend.
The T1 will work with either Model I or Model II.
I'd go the extra expense of the Model II, you truly get what you pay for.
