Powerpack 400 Plus

XPower Powerpack 400 Plus

This is what I use for backup. I have never needed it but I did try it and it lasts for about 4 hours with my Compact connected to it

For my backup power supply, I take a Duracell DPP-600HD Powerpack 600, which allows me to run my L1 Compact system with T1, Sennheiser handheld wireless, and a couple of Shure wireless lavalier mics. It is an inverter powerpack and provides 600 watts of power to run it all for about 3 and a half hours. It costs about $150 on Amazon.com.

Re: Generators

I checked out the Hondas and they were a bit pricier than you guys are saying. They wanted 1200 for the 2000 watt. I picked up a 3000 watt LIFAN inverter generator from HomeDepot.com for 999. Works great and is as quiet as any Honda I've heard run.

Re: Generators

Will a Honda EU1000i be sufficient for a pair Bose L1 Model 1's along with 2 B1s? Or, just one L1 and 2 B1s? I'm pretty sure the L1 Compacts will be fine with Honda EU1000i. The reason I like EU1000i because it's more compact and lightweight (at the expensive of lower power output and lower running time.

Re: Generators

Packman: There are two models of the EU2000i. One of them offers a 220v outlet. The less priced model is two 110v outlets.

K-rad: Yes it would but would be closing in or near max if you're humping the L1s and running anything else with it (mixer, et al)
