Back in 2010 I bought one and broke it on the first use-- the plastic nub that the clamp grabbed on to. I thought I later read that Bose strengthened them. So I bought one a couple weeks ago. Six uses in, the pin broke (like a watch strap pin). Was fitted perfectly to my mic stand -, too. Just barely snug... Should I try again. A phenomenally terrible design
I'm sorry that microphone stand adapter broke. Please call Bose Support on Monday and see if they can help.

As an aside, I leave my microphone stand adapter attached to the microphone stand. I don't attach and remove them at every gig. Mine have been fine like this for years.
Thanks for your input Tom, I just purchased a T1 mic stand bracket from the Guitar Center and the tech assured me the plastic bracket would hold the T1. I looked at the Sweetwater T1 mic stand bracket comments and many experienced musicians are commenting on the "poor design". I'll hold my comments until I start using it at gigs.
My L1 Model 2 has been in my studio for years and the bracket that attaches to the L1 speaker has not been an issue, as the studio is a controlled environment. However I've always felt there should have been a thumb screw attaching the bracket to the bottom of the T1, to have a positive attachment method. The mic stand bracket would also be more secure with this method (if modified on new T1 units).
Wow, the Bose community is 'on the ball.' Thank you Tom! I feel much better about how to properly install the bracket, T1 and cables to the mic stand. I also sent a note to both the Guitar Center and Sweetwater asking them to make a link to these installation instructions. Thank you.
PS, I guess I don't have to tell anyone here how stellar my Bose L1 Model 2 system sounds.
