Bose S1 Pro low end rattle
Hi- I’m using a Bose S1 Pro for smaller acoustic gigs- I run a Gibson J45 and a Neumann KMS105 into a 4 channel Gen 1 Bose T1 Tonematch mixer- I use the Master Out (pre master volume) to go into channel 1 of the S1 Pro. Volume, bass, and treble on S1 Pro all at 12 o’clock. Basically, I’m doing my sound design in the T1 and using the S1 as a powered speaker.
It sounds great, except for when I play a song in drop-D tuning on my acoustic. For some reason, the low D on my guitar causes a really annoying rattle in the S1. Note that I am NOT playing loud- the individual channel volume for my guitar on the T1 is only at 9 o’clock.
I know the S1 can handle more low end as I have used it for music playback with much bass-ier music than the low string of an acoustic guitar. This situation is keeping me from playing songs in D in my set!
Any advice? I haven’t added any eq to the guitar in the T1... and I don’t want to have to take away low end, as it sounds totally appropriate where it is...except for the key of D or C#.
I’ve read forums about people even playing bass through an S1, so I don’t feel that this should happen with an acoustic guitar.
