At this point, you are getting all that one system will produce -- at least with 2 B1's. I suspect, especially disco music, that you are hoping for more bass. One solution is to add an "extended bass package (a Packlite amp and two more B1s) or an external powered bass speaker (both of which are run from the Bass Line Out on the L1). Either way, that would allow you to "get more bass" (which most equate with "louder") without pushing the L1 column to its limit.quote:Originally posted by Renegade:
...The room held 200+ peolpe and the Bose handled this no prob (to a certain point where the system wouldnt get any louder no matter how you turned it up)...
... is entirely understandable -- and would actually be true of any speaker/amp configuration with built-in protection. You just can't push them past the design-in limits.quote:...but once a mic was added to announce a few requests thats when the compression started (had to mute the disco to do requests or else the mic just was not heard).
This is what made me wonder if:quote:...Are the tracks too punchy?...

quote:I do understand as well that the volume doesnt need to be as loud now to carry throughout the venue, wheras the old pa I had was loud on stage to fill the room and maybe that is what I am basing my opinions on.

Just wanted to revive an old thread that has helped me tremendously. I, too, was having system compression trouble like the OP. After reading DrumrPete’s reply, I have turned up the master on my T4S to 2 o’clock, controlling the overall volume for each channel on their respective channel gains. I have run this system (L1S) much louder than previously, with ZERO compression trouble. Still fighting a little feedback from my lead singer’s mic, but I’m searching thru threads to help me with that. So glad I found this thread.

I always get the dreaded compression... so I went out and bought a used Classic to set up on other side of my staging (or sometimes 8 feet or so apart facing slightly outward, with 2xB1 and a B2 massed together between them ... problem solved. The CLASSIC RULES !
