Bose F1 Not nearly enough volume

My Bose F1 812 volume is not nearly what it should be. I can set at full volume with either an SM58 mic or a Takamine Guitar & it sounds OK, should be blowing me out of the room. What should I be looking at first?

Re: Bose F1 Not nearly enough volume

Have you tried it with a mixer and the speaker set to Line Input?

i was using the tops and the bins set to 12oclock but recently left the bin at 0db and put the tops to 2oclock

Much better sound and loud as ****.

Sounds like your problem is input level.

On Input 1 please make sure the Signal Input switch is set the MIC.

On Input 2, you may need a preamp for the guitar.  Check the battery in the guitar and turn it up full.



It sounds like you may need a mixer or preamps for the microphone and guitar.

Re: Bose F1 Not nearly enough volume

The Guitar Battery is good. I have tried with the T1 tone match mixer. I also have an L1S system that has no such issue. Is there a Bose service center in South Florida?  Thanks for the replys!
