[Harp-L] Bose PAS System info
The question was asked about a theatre using Bose on the main floor - would
the sound be inadequate for the balcony?
A Bose rep said the towers don't equally disperse the high end frequencies
above 7 feet.
At close range, there is a loss of highest frequencies on down which becomes
less noticeable at a distance, so the box seats near the stage would hear
less accurate reproduction in highs as would those seated center balcony.
One solution is to angle the towers upwards by sliding a thin wedge under
the front of the base.
The new model L-2 has advantages over the L-1. The advantages are wider
angles to the tweeters in the tower, dispersing the sound to a wider area in
front, a lighter and more portable base unit and a direct powered plug-in for the
additional mini mixer w/effects.
The L-1 input set up different than the L-2 and is more versatile in going
for a group sound concept. It is also less expensive.
If I were to only buy and use 1 unit, I'd seriously consider an L-2.
However, in going with 2 units, I decided on the L-1.
At the Charlie McCoy Concert sound check, everything went through the 2
systems, including the steel pedal and guitar. Kick drum was mic'd and there were
4 vocal mics on stage. It sounded like a CD. The steel pedal player decided
to use his amp for the show, as it had the effects he wanted for his sound.
The concert sounded great - clarity without volume.
