Strip it down to bare bones first and test the Bose system with just a microphone. Then just a guitar (no effects, just the guitar straight into the Tonematch), and at low volumes AND in your home, somewhere away from fluorescent tube lights too.

Trav12, from your postings it sounds like you know your equipment and know what it should sound like. This must be a very frustrating experience.

Nonetheless, snakehips advice is a good one.  In fact, I'd skip the Tonematch too. 

Please do the following and give us some feedback. 

Plug just your guitar and mic straight into the Bose -- no Tonematch, no anything else.  How does it sound?  Any better, no better, worse?

I know this sounds basic but by do this and giving us some feedback, it could give us a starting point to help with assessing your issues.

Have you tried to just connect an Iphone or similar yet straight to the analog-input of the footer? Let us hear how that sounds.
The sound should be full, and no feedback at all.

Re: PLEASE HELP!! ANYONE...I'M AT WITS END

I'm not sure if I missed something, but have you replaced the Powerbase for your L1 M2? Since it houses the amps, electronics, and crossovers for the tower it could most likely be the culprit.

I had a similar situation (volume spikes, odd noises and feedback) with an L1 Classic. It eventually died so I traded it in on a MII and have had no problems since.

I hope that helps and that your solve your problem!

Sorry, I just poured back through the entire thread and noticed that you had replaced the Bose Powerstand so please disregard my suggestion!

Re: PLEASE HELP!! ANYONE...I'M AT WITS END

I am sorry you replaced everything before finding out the issues? Must have a lot of extra cash lying around. If I thought it where my guitar I would have played the guitar through another system to check if it worked properly. Sounds like that commercial where the guy wants new equipment but wife will not allow it. So each piece develops issues and needs to be replaced, until the entire system is replaced. I am sorry but I think the other guy is right you have Demons.

Definitely not a joking situation for me.   I think i've finally found out the issue causing everything.  My final re-purchase was a stomper pedal board that on the old one i had some input problems etc with.  (The board produces kick and snare sounds)  I had a new one made and received it 4 days ago.  Had played 3 gigs with it and the snare side was buzzing badly and could be the main source of the overloading issue and frequency cut outs.   Only my luck would have it that the NEW ONE arrived from Australia and was BROKEN IN TRANSIT.  The inside components of the snare side of the pedal board were a mess, causing it to not make the correct sounds which led me to run it really hot.  I'll know for sure tomorrow when i can crank up the volume.

Trav12, glad you may have found the problem.  Please let us know what you find when you crank jt up today.  It would be nice to know if it's this or something else.
