I have one each -- an S1 Pro and L1 Compact. I've been digging the S1 Pro so much, I'm thinking of getting another and moving away from the Compact. Some of you guys have a lot of gear and multiple S1 Pros. So what do you think? Give me the pros and cons. Would two S1 Pros daisy-chained do as well as one S1 Pro connected to a Compact? Thanks!
Hi Archtop Eddy,
I have a couple of S1 Pros and a couple of L1® Compacts. Here's what I did to understand the difference in sound, dispersion and performance.
In a large room (bigger than 1500 square feet if possible) or better yet, outdoors.
If I remember correctly, you have vocal effects and guitar processing in your rig, so the reverb in the S1 Pro isn't a factor in this comparison. That's why I had you turn it off.
What do you hear?
Thanks ST for the quick response. I'll have to find someplace to try the comparisons you suggest above. Meanwhile... I had a Eurika! moment this morning: Sell off some of my other non-Bose amps and buy another S1 Pro. This way I can keep the Compact as well!
Every time Bose comes out with something new, I have an opportunity to sell a bunch of stuff that didn't work as well.
