Opportunity to Purchase Model II w/ B2 for Solo/Duet Acoustic
New to the forums and looking to make my first Bose Portable PA purchase. I am already appreciative of the knowledge contained in these forums.
I have the opportunity to purchase a used Bose Model II with a B2 Bass Module for a reasonable price. My primary gigs will be solo acoustic or duo acoustic, possible with a keyboard. Current audience is small, sub-200.
I understand that a single B1 module would likely meet my needs very well. This would probably be my preferred setup. However, my questions are as follows:
1) Would this still work well for solo/duo acoustic gigs? Given the opportunity and price, would it be a good buy to make sure I am "future-proofed" for bigger gigs, more pieces, more low-end instruments, etc.?
2) I understand there are settings on the B2 that can dial back the output. Does this make it comparable to a B1?
3) Are there any other drawbacks to using the B2 for solo/duo acoustic gigs (besides being much larger/heavier)?
4) The FAQs on the Bose website for the Model II/B2 combo list the best uses as DJs, low-end instruments, etc., without any mention of voice, acoustic guitar, keyboard, or any other mid/high range instruments. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance. I did search the forums before posting and found some helpful posts, but if I missed any that seem to answer this directly, I apologize and please feel free to link me to those posts.
