I see you use the Bose L1 system. What do you think about it? I just sold my EV SXA-250's and I'm looking at something lighter. Always been confused on the Bose systems as to whether I need two. Also there is the mod 1 vs. mod 2 question. Any guidance you can offer would be appreciated.
Sorry bro, my forum attendance has been spotty of late...
I LOVE the Bose L1. I have a pair of Model 1s, with 2 subs each (4 total.) Here are some considerations:
-I rarely use both, but when I do, WATCH OUT. AWESOME coverage and sound! On many occasions I have used this pair as a full rock band's ONLY PA gear, covering both mains and monitors. I love it, but rarely need it.
-The Bose subs don't really cut it for drums if you're "stompin'". Jazz gigs in small venues, sure. But if you wanna ROCK, you'll need more. I have a pair of Mackie 600w 15s that are such a great match for the Bose tops. I also use an outboard crossover to get the crossover point at 80hz.
-I have not heard the Model II, but am bummed that it doesn't have the mixer like the Model I. I dig the smaller footprint though.
-The Compact is NOT what you want. It's not at all comparable to the L1. I was sorely disappointed in it when my buddy got one.
I hope that helps!
