Hey folks, I'm interested in our singer / songwriters choice for a personal PA system. Something you can use in the studio and then easily take out for live performances. Light weight but loud enough for a small to medium size venue. Perfect for your vocal range. For myself, whether I'm playing acoustic or electric guitar, I found the need to combine two different brands to get what I needed. I have a deep voice, (think Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash), and like using vocal effects from time to time. I quickly narrowed my search down to two. The JBL Professional Eon One Compact, (120 watts and 112 dB output, self powered 1" tweeter 8" woofer down to 37.5 Hz).. A whole array of effects available via the blue tooth cell phone app. Killer highs and deep bass. A huge number of ways to connect and multiple options. The Bose S1 Pro.(150 watts self powered 3 X 2.25" HF drivers and one 6" woofer. Fewer effects, inputs and options. I initially bought the JBL and was very pleased. It delivered everything promised. That said ...... I had an issue I couldn't get around. Because of my vocal range, (mid heavy), the JBL, (which has a dip in this frequency range), was robbing me of the thickness my voice usually produces. It tended to sound thin. So .... I bought the Bose to make a head to head comparison. The Bose is smaller and doesn't offer near the number of options but really matched my frequency range dead on. I sounded full bodied again and my lyrics were louder with more noticeable emotions. I really was impressed. My only issue was giving up all the options I'd come to love on the JBL. I found that by running them together I got the best of both worlds. I just couldn't return either one. I now run an Electro-Voice RE20 mic into a Radial JS3 mic splitter using 2 isolated outputs to send the signal to both. The Bose delivers my voice at its best while the JBL gives me all the effects and options I could ever want.
