Re: Subwoofer for S1 Pro
Per my previous posts, I'd love to see Bose come out with a battery powered bass unit to work with the S1 Pro. That said, I have a question.
For the acoustic guitar/vocal performers, what is it that's missing from your sound when using S1 Pro for PA? Looking at the specs, it appears to me that for acoustic guitar and vocals, the S1 Pro speakers should more than adequate to handle any of the frequencies that would be produced.
In my case, I'm using 2 S1 Pros with a T4 mixer. Even though I can EQ this to the Nth degree, and it sounds good, it still feels like something is missing and I can't put my finger on what it is. It's clear but kind of "thin" for lack of a better word. Like I said, technically, the S1 Pros should be more than enough for the acoustic performer in all frequencies, low to hi.
What do other acoustic performers think?
Normally, I have bass and treble on the S1 set at 1200. I haven't tried this yet but when I get back home in a week or so, I'll try turning the bass up on the S1s and see if that helps.
Used the S1 Pro last night as a personal floor monitor, line out into the house PA. Format was solo acoustic guitar and vocal
Love the sound! For me it provides a really accurate sound amplification of my guitar-vocal, in fact, the sound tech commented on how great the S1 Pro sounded. I do use a vocal processor, and my guitar pedal board (including BBE processing for guitar) so maybe that helps?
So, I would have to say for acoustic guitar and vocal I don't feel anything is missing in the sound.
For recorded music such as backing tracks or a small DJ system, yes, I would grab a small sub or two for sub bass.
