Re: JBL Eon One Compact, Competition for the S1?
Phantom power doesn't draw that much from the battery compared to the amp. It was a SERIOUS oversight not to include it in the S1 (and, to be fair, the JBL EON ONE doesn't have phantom either)...one that has made my performing life a bit more complex and expensive...
Used my new xVive U3 wireless Condenser mic version Wed - ran it on 48v (C1000s) for nearly 2 hours - no problems.
Used 2 S1s for the gig - left them plugged in because it was a 5 hour gig.
Gig was a farmer's market - the space a lawn about 100 yards wide by 50 yards deep, set up on a stage in the center of one of the long sides, had each S1 behind and to each side of the band (3 vocals, 2 guitars) pointed outward about 45 degrees. Heard them fine on stage, walked the areas on a break (playing music - phone bluetooth to S1s) and could hear well throughout the Market.
Got great reviews (and tips) and we were asked to return.
