Compact to Model 1S Daisy Chain

This page describes 'how' to make the connections. Please also see: Stereo / Mono / Distributed Systems to read when and 'why' you would do this.


Use this when you want the same output from a L1® Compact and a L1® Model 1S, typically to provide additional coverage in larger spaces.

For best results running a Compacts and a Model 1S with the same source, put the two systems at least 20 feet apart.
In most situations, if you have two or more L1® systems, you will want to run each sound source (microphone or instrument) to just one L1® system, typically the closest one. Sometimes people want to connect two L1® systems together. This is Dual Mono and not generally recommended except in very specific applications (see Stereo / Mono / Distributed systems). If you want to run Dual Mono Bose recommends that the L1® systems are at least 20 feet apart (6 meters).

Note: The volume settings on the Compact will raise and lower the output to the Model 1S. Set the volumes on the Compact first and then bring up the level on the Model 1S Analog Input to set the relative volumes between the two systems.
