I have an opportunity to purchase either 2 x L1 1s each with a B2, or 1 x L1 Model 2 with 1 x B2, both options would cost about the same price and both are in the same mint condition.
I play in a duo consisting of Nord Stage 3 keyboard, an acoustic (non piezo) guitar and a vocal.
I also play in a four piece band which is essentially the duo with a bass guitar, extra vocal and electric drum kit added.
I started off by looking for a new Bose system for home rehearsal, but the more I looked the more I though I could possibly upgrade our live equipment also (currently a traditional FBT PA system - 2 x 15” powered bins with 4 x powered tops)
As a keyboard player my initial thoughts would be drawn to stereo, but does it really matter with the Bose line array system?
The 2 x B2’s are also an attraction for potentially using with the band set up. I understand I could add that to the model 2, but this wouldn’t maintain a similar cost for the basis of this comparison.
Our audiences usually range from 30 - 40 people at an intimate wedding ceremony, to 250 - 300 people at a wedding reception or corporate event. We also tour as an original singer/songwriter act which also uses sub bass and synths etc.
Venues range from small coffee shops to large theatres.
I know that a lot of this would be subjective, but I’m keen to purchase a system, and the price of either system available to me is so good that I don’t want to miss out on a good deal 😊
