Sad, that you would have to get rid of a product you liked because of and Oder... Especially because it's a Bose product... I have a gig this weekend, an indoor live sound event and I am a bit scared I will have an Oder issue even though at this point I have gigged all summer the smell comes back at times... I have played hours of deep bass music and also many hours of hard hitting kick drums through the F1 subs... at this point I don't know what to think! I will try again to play more deep bass tracks for a couple more hours to try and out gas them more, but seriously...
Is this issue of the Subwoofer odor associated with driving the subs at very high volumes, or just by having them turned on for some length of time?
I ask because I bought an F1 subwoofer but haven't had the occasion to use it yet. If it's just a case of powering up for some length of time I can do that easily. If it has to run 'hard' for a while I'll need to make arrangements to do that, in an attempt to avoid running into this issue after the warranty has expired, etc.
Help! Help! Help! I did another gig on last night and the smell was almost unbearable to the guests. The event facilities manager kept asking about the "burning wire smell". I had to tell them that it was my subwoofer and it was normal. I use my Bose F1's in my DJ setup but this is really embarrassing EVERY TIME. I own 2 L1 Model II's with 2 B2's, and a complete F1 System with 2 F1 Subwoofers. I need a fix, badlyplease?!
Thanks and hope to hear from Bose Support soon!! BJ Bryant Legacy Entertainment 405-202-2965 www.legacyentertainmentok.com firstname.lastname@example.org
