Has someone been chewing on that poor microphone?
Lol. Yeah it's an old one. Just picked up the used transmitter and wanted to try it out. Could have used my normal wireless mic

I standardized on the Audio Technica 3000 series, but bought one of these 1800 series receivers (unit with the 2 antennae) for similar use. it's compatible with the 3000 series body packs and the handhelds. Two channels and battery powered ...

Yeah those are nice units too. I liked my Sennheiser ew's so I've been picking up oddball receiver and transmitters so most are interchangeable, but some are different freq. Have a 700mghz body pack system that doesn't get used anymore for obvious reasons.
Some are 600 ramge, but it appears I can still be in a small window of ok
Others are 500

I love the Bose S1 Pro!

My setup could be similar, BUT I have a portable batter I would bring, and just plug my Shure wireless receiver box into that.

Imagine if they made battery powered, wireless dmx light effects. No wires. Could bring 2 S1 Pros, and a wireless light show, and wireless battery powered MIC. Just plug the laptop in for longer events. ....Could do parties that way, or even small wedding receptions and have a real clean set up that tears down and sets up in minutes. ...If Bose comes out with a Battery powered SUB to match the S1 Pro...that would be sweet, LOL.

Well, there are wireless DMX lights (maybe not effect ones) and wireless DMX transmitters ( Google Express - (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/WiFlyExrBatt--adj-wifly-exr-battery-wireless-dmx-transmitter-receiver)

I have a few questions.

What is plugged into the back of the Bose S1 Pro?

How did you get the bluetooth from the computer to the speaker?

Did you have to change the volume any on the mic or music after you set up?

Yeah, but I want battery powered wireless dmx mini moving head lights to be manufactured. I also believe that effects like the Mini Kinta, Vertigo, Color Strip, Aggressor, maybe a scanner, or moon flower type effect lights like these could certainly be battery powered. Sure, the spinning motors will suck a lot of juice, but I bet a good battery will power a LED moving head for at least 2 to 2.5 hours of use. Use these lights intermittently, and they could easily last for a 5 hour event.

A multi effect box like the ADJ BoomBox FX2 or FX3 with a big battery in it would be great! One of the manufacturers need to get on the ball with it!

Now a large moving head...I think that would be pushing the envelope with a battery realistically, but you never know! I think they could do mini moving heads though.

Unless things are that far away from power, it doesn't make sense (based on today's tech) to go battery .. especially for time periods approaching 6 hours.

In the first picture, it was sitting on top of the speaker and plugged in, 1/4" to XLR

Bluetooth- computer and speaker both have Bluetooth, so no other equipment needed.

I probably adjusted volume on each sometime throughout the event

Bluetooth (non LL) has a delay and makes impossible for mixing.

To make that setup perform a lot better, including the distance and sound quality, buy another bodypack transmitter and receiver to send audio from your laptop/mixer to the Bose S1pro. The S1 has enough inputs.

BT is fine for playlists. I agree a different solution is probably warranted if you're actively mixing.

I have 2 other battery powered receivers so could easily do this. For this event, I felt it wasn't needed
