Connecting stage monitor/wedge to a Bose L1 via T1 'Tonematch' mixer
Bose L1 model 1s with B2 sub
Bose T1 'Tonematch' Engine
Vocal Mic: Shure Sh55
Guitar: Alhambra 7Fccwe2 Electroacoustic Flamenco Guitar
I gig in a small two-piece band with a female vocalist and myself on classical/flemenco guitar. We use a Bose L1 model 1s with a B2 sub and mainly gig in medium sized bars and restaurants. (50-100 people usually)
We plug both the mic and guitar straight into the tonematch using channels 1 and 2 using an xlr cable and 1/4 jack-jack cable respectively.
As is always the case with every musician, it is hard to hear behind the speakers and for us it's no different. We place the L1 in front of us to reduce feedback. I know that Bose advertise their L1 products as both a PA and monitor system that one can place behind them but in truth this isn't usually possible for us because of space constraints or by the fact that it's simply too hard to manage the sound if you are playing in a busy, noisy bar and need to crank up the system unless you have a good grasp of how to surgical eq the system and control the sound better (unfortunately, I have only basic knowledge on this!)
Anyways, we are thinking of getting a small stage monitor as a possible solution to put the vocals and guitar through it - namely the Db flexys FM8 monitor or something to that affect
My question is this - Is this even possible with the L1 and in particular the T1 tonematch engine?? Is it even a good idea?? and if so, how does one go about connecting it and getting it to work with the T1 - cables needed etc etc (I'm not a good sound man and would probably need things explained in idiot terms...apologies!)
Of course, this is only a thought. Other suggestions and solutions would be greatly appreciated!! People have suggested in ears which are excellent but with budget considerations - if a stage monitor solution is possible that would be the preferred option for now!
Hope somebody can help!
