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.

Bose Customer Service Team

NS NXT4a Electric Upright Bass and S1

Getting an NS NXT4a Electric Upright Bass (handicapped & tired of lugging around double bass) and was thinking of getting the Bose S1. I'm in a bluegrass band. Anyone play an Electric Upright Bass through an S1? Will it damage the S1? Thanks in advance.

Hey Larry and welcome to the Bose Pro-Portable Community!

I would say it is perfectly fine to play your Bass Guitar through the S1 Pro at moderate volume. If you push the volume it may result in some breaks in the low end. The S1 System will deliver a lot more of the Low-Mids so you may want to play around with some EQ to find the tone you are happy with.

 

Hope this helps!
