You have not mentioned which model of Bose. But anyway simple rule of thumb is make sure your amplifier output power does not exceed the speakers rated power. Speaker power rating can be higher than the amplifier . That way you won't damage the speakers.
Just remember you cannot use a domestic speaker system for a commercial purpose because they are not designed to throw sound over a great distance and cannot generate very high sound pressure levels like professional speakers do. You may not achieve any satisfaction and in return may damage the speakers by turning up the volume very high. Its like trying to race with a domestic car in a formula 1 race !!!!!.Its a loosing battle all the way.

How to hook up bose b1 module into yamaha emx 5000


The Bose B1 bass module is designed to handle up to 125 watts into 8 ohms 40-200 Hz.
The Yamaha EMX 5000 is full 500 watts, and full range. This is not a particularly good match.

How to connect Mackie Mixer 1402vlz4 to Bose Accoustimass 5 speaker


you need a power amplifier between the mixer and the speakers to actually drive the speakers. You would have to choose which amp to use (the manual, found here: http://www.bose.ca/controller?url=/shop_online/speakers/stereo_speakers/acoustimass_5/index.jsp#manuals suggests between 10-200 WRMS for power), and thus would have to determine the cabling options depending on the amp you choose, but...go from either the MAIN or CONTROL ROOM outputs of the Mackie mixer into the inputs of the power amp. Then go from the outputs of the power amp to the inputs on the Acoustimass bass module, which also runs the Acoustimass satellite speakers.

Mackie dl1608 and Bose l1 humming


This sounds like a ground loop.
Make sure that everything in your signal chain (mixer and anything that plugs into the mixer, and the L1®) are all plugged into the same power source (power bar).

Just bought a ProFX8 mixer to connect to my Bose L1 PA system, but as soon as I connect the outputs to the Bose inputs and raise the master fader there is a "ground hum" even without anything...


Make sure you are using BALANCED audio interconnect cables AND that the speakers and the mixer are powered from the SAME receptacle... Yes, this means running extension cords. It is a ground loop problem. You should be using XLR or TRS cables BALANCED cables from the mixer to the basss unit of the L1 system. The bass unit and the mixer MUST be powered from the same receptacle to avoid ground loops and hum.

Could you send me the best set up starting with 1 for setting up our new XR 8600 Powered mixer in our church. We have 3 bose loudspeakers on each speaker output. Should those Bose be set for 100 watts...


Sorry, but you have a problem. The amp is rated to 4 ohms per side. Your speakers would have to be 16 ohm type to allow 3 per side in parallel. The Bose ratings are usually consumer type ratings and they would have to be set to 200 watts each (twice the rating that the amp can produce per side) to be safe connected to that amp. Your speakers are likely 8 ohm so you could parallel ONLY two per side OR if they are 4 ohm, then you would have to series them. You could series two or three per side safely for the amp. You don't tell us what model Bose speakers you have. Anyway, one has to first meet the specs of the amp and the speakers to avoid damage. It is likely the amp is too BIG for the speakers. For the setup of the mixer portion of this problem I want you to view videos on YouTube. Search for "mixer setup". Don't worry that they are different mixers than yours... there is enough commonality and the functions are nearly the same for MOST analog mixers. Recommendation: forget about two of the speakers... keep them as spares and run low volume to avoid blowing the speakers. I can't imagine any competent audio equipment supplier configuring your system this way.

I'm a solo performer using mp3 backing tracks, a korg mutli effects for rock soloing and 1 mic for vocals all going through a mixer then outputed to Bose L1 Model 1. i. whats the best guitar effects...


You have several questions here and I'll do my best to help. While I'm not familiar with the "Bose" system I am performer that uses effects, mixers and etc. so....
1. Best effects to use. I would choose a small amount of guitar chorus and maybe a short digital echo, this is totally a matter of your choice, but in my experiecne, use as little as possible, you don't want to muddy up your sound
2. If your getting clipping, you have to much gain coming in, if you can you might try changing the settings on the "compressor" if you have such adjustments., or just turn down the output from your effects box a bit.
3. You didn't say what kind of mixer you are using, but typically your best off running your mic through the mixer, run the output of the mixer into a channel on the bose that has the graphic eq set to 0 or "flat", use the mixer to control treble, middle and bass rather than the bose amp.
4. Variation in volume of your backing tracks is an issue that you need to take care of before you play out. When you record your tracks, you need to either use equipmennt that will make the levels all the same, or sit with the system while it records and control the volume (with a mixer) as they are recorded, nothing ruins a performance more than profound changes in volume that override or dimish your main performant, (e.g. your vocals or lead riffs)
Let me know if you have further questions. good luck and Keep on Rockin

Hi. I would like to connect a Bose controller between a pair of Bose 802 speakers and a Studiomaster Powerhouse 300 MIXER/AMP. The diagram on the top of the controller shows the amplifier connected just...


Tech data sheet with diagrams:
http://www.bose.com/pdf/professional/802III_techdata.pdf

In a nutshell, the controller would go between any preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You really don't have much choice in the matter. The 802's and their controller are part of an inseperable system.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.


I don't have any data on your mixer/amp but if you can't insert the conroller logically between the mixer and its amps then you'll have to get separate dedicated amplification for the 802's, with the controller between the mixer and that amp.
