For years I gigged small to medium venues with the original Bose L1. I played hundred of shows with it. I eventually stopped bringing my Sub because of feedback issues (maybe I just never set it up optimally). Im a player and not a sound engineer but to my ears, on vox/guitar/loops with basslines, the sub was overkill. Gigs consisted of as little as 20 in a small room to 100 in boozy bars. I have moved from the states to Oz and am getting ready to play out again. I would like to buy into the Bose system once again but need some advice.
My budget, should stretch to allow for a Pro 8 but I am concerned it may not match my old legacy L1.
There is a store here that has a pro 32 for a comparable price as the Pro 8 but without the sub.
I am unfamiliar with any of the product lines except for the original. Would I be fine with the pro 32 as a solo acoustic player (not a dj, but I do use a Helix pedal for bass and synthy lines as a platform) w/o a sub? I'm sure the newer versions behave differently.
I would really love any time and experienced feedback the community could give.
Thank you so much for your input.
