Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Hissing

I seem to get a hissing sound out if my L1 compacts. How do I figure out what is causing this. When I turn the volume down it goes away but I need the volume up. Maybe they are too close to each other?

If I recall correctly, you are connecting a mixer to your L1 Compacts. Ideally, you are using the channel 2 inputs  (not using the channel 1 microphone inputs). Please make sure the channel 1 inputs volume controls are turned fully counter-clockwise.

Is the hiss still there?

Does the hiss get louder when you have something connected to the L1 Compact?

Is the hiss new or is this something you've noticed as you've changed the way you do things?

Thanks,

ST

Re: Hissing

That seemed to make a difference. I'm using a Yamaha mixer to connect one of the L1 s . I had to use an male for on one end and a quarter inch on the other so that I could plug in to channel two on l1 compact. Then turned channel 1 on compact all the way down and daisy chained to the other L1. I think it worked. Thanks.
