I have been using the bose stick since it first came out and now have upgraded and bought the bose model II with the T1 "
mixer input unit" All I can say is WOW! First thing. It is modular so you carry it in in smaller easier to carry sections. It is a mono speaker system but some drumers have used 2 in stereo although I have not and some of the little places we play you really don't need stereo. It sounds fine with just one although it takes a little getting used to it . The stick has 24 speakers in it and is 2 parts so each one is light and easy to carry. The subs are also modular in that you can use 1, 2, with a packlite amp you can add 3, 4, depending on how big a room you are playing.You can also use a 3rd party sub with this if you so chose . The bose is so easy to carry and set up you may never go back to a conventional PA Total set up time including carry in may be 20 minutes or less and what you hear 1-2 feet away from it is the same more than 80 feet away. You set it up behind you and it is your monitor as well as your mains. It gets plenty loud for me when I need that kind of volume , but out in the audience it is not painful, just clean sound. The T1 has 5 inputs that now you can have multiple setups for mics, edrums, ipods, guitars and each channel has multiple effects that can be added like delay,reverb,eq. Zeq as well as chorus, flanger. If you are interested you should go and read the bose musicians forum it has much information. It is preety expensive, but what it replaces and the sound that you can get out of it is worth every penny. How much is your back worth to you ? Just for that reason you should check the bose out I hope that this may help some of you. THUMPER
