I have used an L1 model 1S for almost 2 years now, with T4S mixer and historically, a B1 bass module. I never had any issues when using the B1.
I recently however swapped my B1 for a B2, and now I’m really struggling with increasing the volume beyond a certain point at gigs.
For context, I use a Shure Beta 58A microphone for vocals, a Gibson J45 acoustic (tuned a step down), and a Roland SPD:One stomp box as a kick. I play a very lively upbeat acoustic set and 99% of the venues I play like it to be… loud. The reason I upgraded to the B2 was because the B1 wasn’t giving me enough punch with the stomp.
I’ve already had to EQ the low frequency right down on my vocal and guitar channels since getting the B2 as it’s far too powerful (particularly for the guitar being tuned down), but I’m concerned/quite sure that it is something related to this which is causing my issues.
the sound just seems to completely clip and distort when I come to even a moderately loud volume at the moment. I know it is capable of being far louder.
is it possible to bypass the sub completely on both the vocal and guitar channels, to only engage it for my stomp box? I think this would possibly largely reduce the issue. Alternatively is there a way on the T4S to reduce the crossover frequency so that the B2 isn’t being used as much as a low end driver with the guitar?
Help would be greatly appreciated. I’m really battling my system every gig at the moment, and often considering whether or not I need to swap out.
