Excuses for swedish chat everyone else reading ;)

Aha, jag känner inte Hasse personligen men ser honom på forum ibland. Viktoria Tolstoy har jag jobbat med flera gånger. Kul! Kommer säkert träffa honom någon dag, det brukar bli så förr eller senare. Folkmusik är mycket trevligt. Jag kör ljudet på en veckas vis-festival på somrarna, brukar träffa rätt mycket folkmusiker då. Alltid härligt folk och härliga efterfester, fiol och snaps :)

Yeah nice talking to you too, Swedish must be a strange language for foreigners. I went to Russia a couple of weeks ago. Man, I didn't understand a single word, trying to remember some standard words was very hard too.

Well, for everybody wondering about the Bose, I guess I have to let the customer decide what he wants, and that I think will be Bose.

hey

There is at least one other company who makes a very similar product, i remember seeing one of their adverts in a magazine (L&SI i'm sure) but didn't pay a huge amount of attention so don't remember the brand name. I assume they would sound a bit better than the bose although haven't heard them myself so cant confirm that.

But at the end of the day, there is only so much you can do in these situations. As i'm sure you know in higher end clubs, restaurants and bars sound unfortunately tends to come a distinct last place behind décor, lighting etc etc  and they seem to have already decided on the "stick" form factor because of the way it looks.  All you can do is warn them that the sound isn't as good as it is in other more traditional products and that they are paying for the "look", and if they still decide they want it then you've done your job and all you can do is install it and move on.

Edit:  found the advert its by Renkus-Heinz, here's a link to the brochure pdf   http://www.renkus-heinz.com/support/marketing_sales-support/brochures/brochures_pdf/ICLive-Letter.pdf

The ICLive is a steerable array and is on pretty much a completely different level than the Bose L1.

ha, isn't everything on pretty much a different level from Bose?   :P

lol, no in all seriousness i didn't really look into the product at all, just remember seeing it and thinking that superficially it reminded me of the Bose.

Hi all!

Got an install where the customer wants to have something like the Bose L1 compact. (2 of them)

Since I am fairly impressed of the system, I want to deliver something as sleek but better sounding at a not too different price.

The system shall be active, have less of distortion, better freq. range and better sounding subwoofer(s).
Maybe a not so easy task since the L1's are pretty cheap and the form factor has to be "sleek". I think they will agree on 20-30% higher price on a better sounding rig and a little better SPL for DJ setups.

It will be used for piano bar / troubadour and DJ's for smaller crowds in a restaurant environment. This mobile system shall "not be seen, just heard".

Thankful for suggestions!

// Gustav

Remember that the customer has stipulated a "mobile" system.

These are small and mobile. Never heard them but have a friend who has mixed on them and had good things to say.
