Testing a Dual Mono setup using two L1 Compact speakers and a single source (microphone).

We have a church with about 300 members. The venue has a raked floor (fan-shaped) and a single L1 Compact located centrally works well and reduces unwanted reverberation compared to the installed hang and tilt speaker system. However, we would appreciate some additional volume.
So we'd like to an additional L1 Compact using the setup using described here:  https://toonz.ca/bose/wiki/index.php?title=Compact_Daisy_Chain 
I order to analyze the contribution provided by the second array section independently while still using the first L1 Compact controls I intend to removal the array section of the first L1 Compact and connect a speaker equivalent RLC circuit in its place.
Are Thiele-Small Parameters for the L1 Compact array available or would I need to measure/estimate them myself?

Hi Uncle John,

 

You will not harm the Compact by simply removing the array for your test.

 

It is not necessary to place equivalent resistance in the speaker circuit.

@Oldghm,
I suspected it should be OK. But as I plan to borrow the second L1 Compact from a friend I wanted to be sure.
Thanks,
