Re: Bose S1 Pro System
thanks for posting the link to the Bose specs for the L1 + B2 combination. It does say how many watts the system has, but if he/you read what's in the links I put up earlier today you can see that the wattage doesn't really say much on its own. For the 250W high/mid + the 250W low end the Model II can certainly cover an extremely large area. Not deafeningly loud, but who really wants that anyway?Paul Rumbol posted:
I suspect that the S1 Pro will struggle outside, volume wise.
For busking purposes you don't really need to be terrifically loud. In most countries I would imagine that it's not really allowed to be really loud. What you want is to have enough volume to be heard within a few yards or so. I would imagine that the S1 will cover these needs. If the Rechargeable battery lasts long enough per charge I can see the S1 doing quite well for buskers prepared to go the extra mile money wise to have Bose sound.
I do find it to be a shame that they didn't offer the possibility that Roland did with the AC 33. That thing runs on 8 AA batteries. Two sets of those as rechargeables (Eneloop are really good) and you can run all day. Maybe that will become a possibility in time.
Yes You are right, because L1 sound field area is 180 degrees & frequency response is more linear. It's more difficult to compare to other type of speakers. I only show where to find Bose equipment specifications.. I'm using Bose L1 II , Bose monitors 310 series , T1 mixers , Bose F1 system & A1 amplifiers . I'm not complain to anything . If people need some specifications , they will find if really need .
