Hi guys! The first time I write in here.
Instead of having two equal Compacts for stereo, has some experience with replacing one of them with a larger model, will this work with different PAs?

Thank you for joining the Community. It's nice to meet you.
If you don't push the volume to the limits of the L1® Compact, you can get some good stereo results with an L1® Compact and an L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II.
There are some interesting differences between the models.
The L1® Compact goes down to around 65 Hz.
The L1® Model 1S and Model II go down to around 40 Hz.
At moderate volume, if you are not deliberately listening for differences of a mismatched pair, you may not notice a big difference especially if the listeners are moving around in the sound field.
You will be more aware of the differences between the models as you move farther away from them. The larger L1®s drop-off in volume more gradually than the L1® Compact. If the two units are the same volume on stage, as you move farther away, the sound of a larger L1® will be louder than the L1® Compact. At a greater distance, you may hear only the larger L1®.
Does that help? What else would you like to know?
How large is the space where you will be using your two L1®s (L1® Compact plus something else)?
Thank you for your answer! and nice to be here. This was a more general question. Based on that I hope to get jobs on different places with different space. I now there is several factors to consider, but with your answer I feel that I am not doomed to fail. There could be something that I had forgotten to think about.
did you try mismatch it!!l1 compact with l1 model 2 in stereo mode??hows the sound?does it go loud?im planning the same way coz i got 1 l1 model 1s with b2 bass for dj in hall qround 200-300 people mostly hiphop and salsa
the hall im taking about is the size of a basketball gym and the dance floor is like 50 feet by 80 feet roughly estimate..and around 50 to 100 dancing and the crowd is loud...but ill be using my 2 prx 715xlf on this L1 model 1s just to carry more bass..now my question is will the bose be loud enough for this type of crowd if one is l1 compact and the other one is l1 model 1s
dj sob-lib, it would have been good if you had shared, if there will be useful experience and discoveries after your gig next month!
