Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Using L1 compact as a fill for sides of the room with F1 system - should I worry about sound cancelation

When using the compacts as a filler for the sides of the room is there any sort of phase cancellation I should be worried about.

Hi NAW-T-Boy,

Any time you have two identical (or very similar) sound sources with overlapping coverage areas, there is the possibility of Multiple Source Interference.



If you are using the L1 Compacts to fill in areas that are not covered by your main loudspeakers, then there's probably minimal overlap of the coverage areas.  If you're getting significant overlap (and problems), then you probably didn't need the "filler for the sides of the room".  The solution is to move the L1 Compacts or turn them down.



In portable sound applications, you can anticipate some problems but you may have to get out to the gig to experience them and deal with them on-the-fly.

@NAW-T-BOY, You may want to consider adding some time delay to the L1 Compacts based on how far away they are from the 812/F1Subs.
