How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?

Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The amazing sound it the best feature followed by the compact size. Sound How is the tone? I use this system in churches of various sizes and it never fails to amaze me. It fills the entire room with full bodied sound. when I get into really large places (gymnasiums, etc) I and another pair of speakers and an amp just to help cover the area, but the Bose provides all the clarity and punch.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Bose built in quality and inovation. Very dependable with top notch service after the sale. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The 2 units I have are used for giging and in the studio. All the features are well thought out. The only thing we wish the base unit had was a full mix direct line out not just a Bass line out. It has a line in wich is useful when we sub mix more inputs to the unit than the Tone match will take. We have a small beringer mixer we use also. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? It takes more time to set up my amplified Harmonica rig than to set up the Two Bose units up. We timed the Bose set up time for 2 units at 20 min. total. Sound How is the tone? Fantastic. If you put trash in it thats what you get out. If you have great tone and vocals that's what comes out of the speakers, it dosent cover up/ hide bad vocals or musical talent. General Your general opinion of this product. We liked the 1st unit so much we purchased another 3 months later. Now I have added a Bose Compact to my collection for a personal monitor and for a smaller practice/ gig amp. By the way we are a 4 peice Rock/ Blues band and also do small Acoustic patio gigs at local resturaunts.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's very well made. The only thing I found to be a little flimsy is the ToneMatch bracket mount. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? If you're used to lugging around the typical PA and a monitor or two; this is a game changer. The only thing I wish Bose would do given all the $$ spent on a system would be to make hardshell cases standard. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Easy setup. The tonematch engine is very intuitive to use. Taylor 310ce and a Shure SM58 set to the "singer/songwriter" scene and done... Sound How is the tone? I've played though some amazing house systems and have quite a nice system too. This..... is a game changer.
Amazing Sound especially with acoustic!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Built like a tank but don't treat it like one. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Ease of use and the sound is same no matter where you are in the room. The only feature I would add is a lower price tag. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? No more backaches from hauling and setting up heavy, bulky PA cabs. Setup in 1/4 the time. Extremely easy to use. I use 2 of these for FOH and monitors (set up behind the band) so we replaced (2)18" sub cabs, (2)2-15" w/horn cabs, 4 monitors, all the cables and power amps with this Bose setup. We run everything through a Mackie 1640i then into the Bose setup. Sound How is the tone? The sound/tone is amazing. It is the same throughout the room. But remember, if you put crap into it you'll get crap out of it.
