I just picked up an L1 Model II and have been trying it out with my keyboard rig - Motif and Nord Stage. I have been using a MacKie 808 stereo amp, EVsx300 with matching Subs. I find the Bose extremely clear, a little harsh, highs very crisp, lows a little weak and.....I miss stereo !!
I see the stereo effect with keyboards is a hot topic. I was wondering if 2 compacts, a stereo mixer and maybe an additional bose Sub would be a solution ?
Welcome to the forum. I'm not a keyboard player just want to give your post a bump, maybe Alan or Dan will be here in a bit with some useful info.
The Compacts go down to about 65hz. There is no provision to power a sub. There is a full range line out that could be used with an active sub or amp and speaker combination. One could only guess how it might sound.
Hi, Mark Goodwin!
If you only have a single B1 ... get a second one.
For solo use, particularly (as opposed to playing with a band), the second B1 helps a whole lot (unless you are only playing in a small 10x12 room ).
There has been some speculation that a single Compact paired with a Model 1 or 2 L1 (with 2 B1's, of course) may provide that desired stereo separation -- but I've not yet read of anyone trying that combination yet.
I think I am going to sell my 4 EV250's (powered 15s) and get another Model II. I am going to use these as our mains, and monitors, and just add 3 powered 18' subs.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Will using 2 Model II's as the mains with high volume cause a problem? I definitely do NOT want to donate these to the band, only to have one blow up on me.
I was going to use our existing board, and just put that into the input of both Level II's (left and right). Then out from the boards mono into the three powered 18s, and have these sit right behind the right and left side of the band.
This would eliminate our monitors. I am going to suggest the guitarist to point his amp at him so he can hear it clearly. I am just not so sure this monitor set up will work with the drummer. It's rock, so it's loud no matter how you look at it.
