The JBL is heavier, but only by 1.9 pounds. (17.63).Turns out I was wrong(i know, I'm just as shocked as you!)
S1 pro is 15.7 lbs.
I've found weight makes a huge difference.
Needing to move these quickly in some instances, the lower weight is great. I was using compacts before that(22lbs)....plus power source.
Direct sun and possible rain are factors. Being able to bring it out just before ceremony if needed is nice. getting everything put away quickly is nice too.
There you have it. If Rocky likes the JBL, then I'd go with the Bose for sureI've heard both the JBL EON One Compact and the Bose S1 Pro, both used in professional circumstances...either would be a stellar choice.
The JBL, to my sound receptors, was more full, more complete during music reproducition but the Bose was also crystal clear and was livelier during microphone useage.
Just shows to go ya what you know...I opted to forgo a battery powered option for the Bose Compacts, that I already own, on inverter.There you have it. If Rocky likes the JBL, then I'd go with the Bose for sure
Yea .. I forgot that too, as I have one as well. A bit large though .. a 12" that's close to some 15" in size. Built-in mic is nice .. seems to work well .. but as you mentioned, it's been discontinued.Any of the above mentioned are good I personally use an Alto Transport 12. They are 35 Lbs or so but on wheels with a handle. For vocals they are very clear and for music they sound good at low and mid volume. I do think they are legacy now but there's a ton of them around for resale
