Product Highlights
  • 12-Speaker Line Array
  • 180-Degree Horizontal Sound Coverage
  • For Audiences Up to 300
  • Designed for Consistent Tonal Balance
  • Designed for Easy Transport and Setup
  • B1 Bass Module Included
  • 1x Line Level 1/4" TRS Input

The L1 Model 1S with B1 Bass Portable Line Array PA Speaker System from Bose is a portable line array speaker and bass module that is designed to serve as a PA and monitoring system for solo musicians and public speakers for audiences of up to 300 people.

Intended to be clean, compact and not cluttered with connections, the L1 Model 1S system is equipped with a single line-level analog input via 1/4" TRS jack. The analog line-level input has a trim control and a signal and clip LED. The input can be used to connect line-level instruments such as keyboards, or other line-level audio sources such as mp3 players for playing music, or mixers for connecting microphones. The optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine can be added if mic inputs are needed, or if more than one line input is needed.

The vertical configuration of the system's small, closely spaced drivers allows the L1 Model 1S system to deliver 180-degrees of horizontal sound coverage, yet at the same time only produce a small amount of vertical sound. This reduces unwanted reverberation and produces consistent tonal balance as sound spreads more evenly across the stage and into the audience. Also, the volume level drops off less over distance than with a conventional speaker.

The L1 Model 1S upper array, the B1 Bass Module and the power stand are designed to connect quickly and easily and do not require speaker stands. All components fit in to the included carry bags for storage and transport.

The included B1 bass module is equipped with high-output, high-excursion drivers that are designed to produce deep, strong bass from a small enclosure. Designed for expandability, the L1 Model 1S system allows you to power up to two B1 bass modules, or one of Bose's more powerful B2 bass modules.

The L1 Model 1S system also includes a ToneMatch port for adding the optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine. The T1 ToneMatch adds mic inputs, additional line inputs, plus you can also use the ToneMatch effects engine to fine-tune your sound with Bose's proprietary tone-shaping tools.

12-Speaker Line Array For 180 Degree Coverage
The Bose "Spatial Dispersion" and "Articulated Array" speaker technologies have been incorporated into the loudspeaker design in order to produce wide, uniform sound coverage. The 12 small drivers are arranged within the slim, vertical enclosure and are designed to create nearly 180 degrees of horizontal coverage and consistent tonal balance for audiences up to 300
Integrated Power Amplifiers
Built-in power amplifiers in the power stand provide amplification for the L1 Model 1S system with up to two B1 bass modules or one B2 bass module
B1 Bass Module
Features two 5.25" (13.3 cm), high-output, high-excursion drivers that are designed to produce deep, strong bass from a small enclosure. When connected to the power stand, active equalization circuitry automatically adjusts bass signal appropriately
ToneMatch Port
Add the optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine for adding mic-level inputs, additional line-level inputs, and digital signal processing to customize your sound
Interlocking Design, Retractable Legs and Carry Bags
Lightweight, interlocking components and retractable legs eliminate the need for speaker stands and speaker wires. Carry bags for each component aide portability

    Comments about Bose L1 Model 1S with B1 Bass Portable Line Array PA Speaker System:

    I am using the Bose L1 in a large glass room to amplify a digital keyboard and a digital organ. The L1 Model 1S is serving as an antiphonal sound source, and I'm using another L1, Model II as the main speaker. The sound is transparent, powerful, and clean. Dispersion through the room is outstanding. The L1 speaker line is outstanding in every regard.

    Comments about Bose L1 Model 1S with B1 Bass Portable Line Array PA Speaker System:

    This system sounds amazing! I bought it for my wife and her guitarist so they can do some shows here and there. I can't explain in words how crisp the sounds are. We bought the "Tonematch" along with the system for some effects and extra inputs. It's light and very easy to set-up
