Five gigs with Genos and Bose S1
« on: April 14, 2018, 11:10:05 PM »
Itís still Very Early times...that said.

Genos is like an old friend in a new shape. Been gigging with two Bose S1 speakers. I love the sound I hear through the speakers and, apparently, so does the crowd from what they tell me.

The biggest challenge for me is the 76 Keys...I love the options 76 Keys provide but very occasionally get lost on the left hand.

Will do 4 to 8 gigs a month in various situations for the next year.

But, truth be known, how could you not love Genos? And Bose as well. 😁

Well done to you

But when you say Ďgigsí

Do you mean playing 50 to 60 songs one after the other on your Genos ?

In the US, gigs, loosely translated means jobs.

Guitpic, glad those S1s are working out for you.

Guitpic, do you use a sub as well? The S1 Bose only respond down to 70 Hz. There's really no deep bass. My Bose L1 Compacts only respond down to 65 Hz, and that's not very low. The low E on a bass guitar is approximately 41 Hz. Just curious.

Lee,  I have been using the S1ís without subs so far.  My gigs so far have been(assisted living)medium sized rooms, 50 or less folks.

Plenty of low end for those crowds.

Tomorrow, Iíll use them in a larger room, noisier and about 100 folks.  Iíll get a better feel there for the S1 in a larger environment.

Fully agreed Guitpic. I never use my sub in the seniors' gigs either. The seniors, like myself to an extent, mainly suffer from high frequency loss, not "bass loss" (LOL) :). Your Bose and mine really shine in those areas. I add my sub when we're doing dances or other larger venues.

Good stuff! Thanks.
