View Full Version : HD500 and Bose L1

Anyone using these together?
I don't have an HD500, but I use/used my Bose L1 Model II with Axe-Fx Ultra, ToneLab LE, Tonelab tabletop, Zoom G2, Zoom G2.1Nu, PSA 1.1, Marshall JMP-1 and character pedals. I also use it for bass (Programmable Bass Driver DI, Trace-Elliot MP-11, and TC Electronic RH50) and keys.
They all work great for me with the L1. I also have the T1, and use two B1 bass modules for bass and keys.

Thanks. I'm thinking if I have to take the L1, I might as well take an amp.

I have the L1 model 2 + T1 + HD500. The HD500 does not sound that good with the L1 - Too fizzy, too much high and low end and not enough mids, a bit artificial.
You really have to tweak the HD500 amp settings to get a good sound out of it. But I've never got a great sound though. It's just Ok.

Interesting that they had had a specific Bose setting on the old one but not on the new.

I don't own the HD500 but I do use the Vox Tonelab through a Bose l1 model 2
With fantasic results. I find the smaller speakers in the Bose actually lend themselves
To a very articulate midrange response, they are very hi fidelity so I find myself using
Much less high end.
