I admit I was a little skeptical after reading a lot of bad press
concerning the Bose products, but this one is a gem amongst the rocks.
My partner and I purchased an old bar and grill that we have been
restoring for about a year now. Fortunately it came with a caberet
license so we were able to book local acts, mostly r+r bands to draw in
Most of these groups had their own PA's and unfortunately most of them
were crap gear, loud, lot's of feedback and usually people running them
that didn't know what they were doing. It didn't take long, with a
couple of visits from the local sheriff because neighbors were
complaining the sound was too loud, for us to investigate alternatives.
The friendly folks at Sam Ash came to the rescue and before we knew it
we were the happy owners of some really new and innovative gear.
We bought into the "Bose Double Bass Package"
All I can say is the sound is fantastic and we can use the remote to
crank down the talent if they get too loud.
This system ROCKS THE HOUSE and this is a pretty decent sized venue.
We had a little flack from some of the acts but once they heard the
Bose they knew it was something special and that they would sound
I can't say enough about this great system and the wonderful staff of
consultants at Sam Ash inc.
Thank you for your time.
I've been using the Bose personal amp. system for about 9 months now
with my bagpipe band and we have
been very impressed with the results.
The sound is quite clear and you can hear the finer timber of the
When we need more sound we just augment the system with a Samson SX1200
a set of Samson Resolv RS15 Pa Cabinets.
What kind of mics are you running with the Bose system?
Bagpipes require god mics and you can't beat the Samson Q-Tom mics for
We are using an IBM Thinkpad running Redhat Linux for backing tracks
control our light show!
Linux is the ticket for this kind of stuff.
Best of Luck to you

I mean BOSO is ok, esp if you have small room
and pretty deaf, or you are BOSE salesman.
They make speakers sound sweeter, but not remotely
close to the original. Yeah and don't forget paper cones.
Just want to pipe in here. I am NOT a sales or PR person. I'm an
independent professional sound company in the SF Bay area, for the past
I'm a sound guy and I use Bose! 802s, not the new thing which I have
never heard, but just want to say the with Bose 802s I can get
excellent sound for venues of any size up to 600 people. i have 8 of
them and by configuring them appropriately they have many uses... I
won't go into detail, and have never heard the new stick things, just
want to say the Bose makes one great product - the 802 series
BTW, I'd use better mics for bagpipes than Samson, but5 if it works for
I've been hearing about these "god" mics every now and again and I
figure that they must be rilly somethin special. Where can I hear them
without making the ultimate sacrifice?
Now wait a minute, I'm no Bose fan, but saying this gentleman is no sr pro
because he uses 802s is way much, For a lot of corporate, 802s are great,
nice flattering to speech, non R&R music comes out ok, and the big wheels
booking them love to see the Bose name. I also saw an acoustic festival
with 4 802s per side, and it was very nice. I regularly work a small 2500
seat venue with a distributed Bose system, I took a walk around with the
house wireless and some production music going , was nice, very
intellegible and sounded like a good sounding house sound should for
spoken and production tracks (not, of course , for forground music levels,
but none of those buildings systems are.)
I have heard decent sound out of 802s, for some uses they are ideal
Probably not my uses, but..
There is a world of difference between this guys posting and the unnamed
venues poster blatent schilling for Bose. I doubt Dave Andrews is not a
pro, he uses Bose for his work (before becoming employed by Bose) evidently
effectively. The newer Bose products probably have their place, albeit
overpriced and marketed as end all systems for any concievable use.
