Bose S1 Pro For Wedding Ceremony

I was seriously considering 2 Bose S1 Pro units for my wedding ceremonies. I'm on the fence but can't find enough Pros to offset the Cons acording to my application. 

I typically run 3 mics for ceremony but the S1 PRO has only 2 mic inputs. I would have to run an external mixer to accomplish my need. Also the additional price for the battery would put me greatly over the price of my current solution. 

If anyone is using this unit for the same type of application, I welcome any ideas or PROS and CONS

One should work for that but not sure how many people it can handle

Hi DJ8X,

Since May 10, 2018 the battery is included in the S1 Pro system at the same price.

How big are the wedding ceremonies (number of people, size of the venue)?

What would you be replacing with your two S1 Pro systems?

Re: Bose S1 Pro For Wedding Ceremony

That's good to hear about the battery @ST

My average ceremony is roughly 100 people. I know the S1 Pro can handle that with ease. My only concern is mic input limitations. I run 2 lapels and a handheld..all wireless. I would run out of mic inputs with the S1 Pro. 

My current ceremony solution is a JBL Eon 208p.

Please share your secret. I have found that mics on officiant and groom works wonders for picking up the vocals of the bride.

Mic on the groom should be enough
