  • L1 Model II System with B2 Bass

    The L1 Model II System with B2 Bass Package from Bose is a portable amplification system for musicians, DJs and public speakers. It can be used to deliver 180 degrees of horizontal sound coverage and smooth tonal balance for live stage, theater, rehearsals, and more.

    The Model II sound system is an all-in-one system that replaces conventional monitors, mixers and PA speakers. The loudspeaker's 24 vertically mounted drivers are precisely angled to create clearer highs and more consistent tone in the room. And this professional sound system is packed with proprietary Bose technologies to improve amplified sound. In addition, the included B2 bass module offers greater flexibility and power at the low end.

    Full, Flexible Bass
    The high-performance B2 bass module delivers greater low-frequency output when you need more powerful bass for larger audiences. The module includes 3 settings for increased flexibility. The normal setting is suitable for bass guitar or when miking a kick drum. A higher setting is designed for DJ/music playback applications. And the lower setting works well for acoustic guitar and vocals. You can power one B2 bass module on a single L1 power stand. And the PackLite power amplifier (sold separately) lets you add a second B2 bass module for maximum low-end power.
    Easy and Efficient
    The L1 Model II power stand weighs only 24 lb, and its 4 retractable legs make it easy to transport and set up. The power stand also has a simplified control section; the single line-level input can be used with instruments, mics, mixers, laptops, MP3 players or DVD systems. All of the system's components are also built to handle the road. The loudspeaker has a rugged, reinforced grille, and each package includes padded carrying bags for major components.
    Spatial Dispersion and Articulated Array Speaker Technologies

  • T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine and Mixer for the Bose L1 Audio System

    The Bose T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine is a compact digital mixing device for the Bose L1 Portable Line Array Speaker System. The T1 ToneMatch delivers a host of propriety, DSP based algorithms, EQ settings and effects for processing vocals and instruments in order to achieve genuine, authentic tone. Up to 100 proprietary ToneMatch settings allow for effortless results and there is plenty of room for user storage, which provides musicians and vocalists with the ability to store their own scenes.

    Integrated ToneMatch Audio Engine and Audio Technologies
    The T1 features four independent channels featuring Bose's largest library of ToneMatch instrument and microphone presets, proprietary zEQ and a complete suite of studio-class effects and sound processors.
    Proprietary ToneMatch Presets
    Optimize the L1 system to match intended natural sound of specific instruments and vocal mics. Over 100 presets are organized into quick-access banks and can be independently assigned to each channel. Free ongoing updates via USB connection between your computer and ToneMatch audio engine.
    Proprietary zEQ
    Proprietary zEQ automatically adjusts the range of tone controls to match your voice or instrument, making it easier to fine tune your sound. Conventional mixers may have fixed EQ ranges that don't accurately affect desired frequencies when adjusted. But zEQ appropriately redefines low, mid and high frequency ranges of specified sources.
    Single-Band ParaEQ
    Single-band ParaEQ centers on frequency you specify for each independent channel. Valuable tool for reshaping problematic frequencies in certain venues.
    Five Reverb Types
    Five reverb types (small, medium, large, plate and cavern) available for global assignment, with individual channel controls for decay time, mix level and brightness.
    Three Delay Types
    Three delay types (analog, digital and tape) can be independently assigned to selected channels, with control over feedback time and mix level for each channel. For example, you can select tape delay for your vocal on channel 1 and analog delay for your guitar on channel 2.
    Ten Modulation Effects
    Ten modulation effects (three chorus types, two flange types, four phaser types and one vintage tremolo effect) can be independently assigned to selected channels, with control over designated parameters for each channel.
    Seven Dynamics Processing Types
    Seven dynamics processing types (three compressors, limiter, de-esser, kick gate and noise gate) can be assigned to independent channels.
    Scenes allow you to store, recall and edit "snapshots" of all key ToneMatch audio engine settings at any given time. This feature helps simplify setup when you're using an L1 system repeatedly in different venues. The engine includes five predefined Bose scenes, five My scenes and five Shared scenes you can give to other L1 owners.
    Chromatic tuner
    Chromatic tuner for convenient tuning of instruments.
    Large Backlit Display
    Large backlit display with intuitive layout and easy-to-read text for modes and settings.
    Rotary Encoder
    Rotary encoder for quick access to modes, effects and parameters, including ToneMatch presets, zEQ, ParaEQ, reverbs, delays, modulators, dynamics processing, scenes and tuner. Features clean, circular layout.
    Aux Mode (Channels 1 - 3)
    Aux mode (channels 1 - 3) sends channels' dry, pre-fader or post-fader audio to aux output for connection to additional L1 systems or recording devices. Independent level controls for optimal signal output.
    Channel Volume, Mute and FX Mute (1 - 4/5)
    Channel volume, mute and FX mute (1 - 4/5) for adjusting individual channel volume, muting individual channels and muting all effects on selected channels.
    Master Volume
    Master volume adjusts overall level of master output.
    Phantom Power
    Phantom power applies +48V power to input channels 1 - 3 to drive specific microphones.
    ToneMatch Cable
    ToneMatch cable transfers audio signals and provides power to ToneMatch audio engine from L1 Model II power stand. Use the optional T1 power supply for connections to L1 Model I and Compact systems.

Bose L1 II reviews

L1 Model II System with B2 Bass & ToneMatch Audio Engine (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Lightweight Set-Up, Small Footprint I've been meaning for sometime to simplify my live gig sound reenforcement and wished I hadn't waited so long. Transport and set-up were my main reasons, but I've now realized the added benefit of fantastic natural sound. I'm an acoustic player and we run two vocals, guitar and percussion into this system. I've not decided how I want to expand inputs, when we have to expand personnel (this won't occur until our summer concert schedule). I've yet to explore the analog input.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST I bought this system for our Karaoke family night. All I can say is we were all BLOWN AWAY. I've been around and used PA systems for 40 years. This system just beats them all. I own another large PA system for larger venues but for small to medium size rooms, this is my go to PA. Buy it! You won't regret it! Thanks B&H for great service and fast shipping!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs the Mail I couldn't be more pleased with my unit. We are an auction company and use this system inside and out. We also play music through the system and it is impressive. You won't regret this purchase. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, incredibly portable. I am a solo performer of vocals, acoustic guitar and digital piano. The Bose L1 Model II System has revolutionized my performances. Even in outdoor venues, it provides amazingly even sound over large or small areas. I no longer have to haul around monitors, either, since it can be placed a little behind me and off to the side. I hear exactly what the audience is hearing, which is crucial in a solo performance. With a vocal microphone, an acoustic/electric guitar, a digital piano and digital drums, the T1 is all the mixer that I need. In fact, I take it with me whenever I am forced to use a house system and can count on the exact mix, effects, etc. that I use with the L1 system anywhere. One cable to the house system, and I'm ready to start with only a minimal sound check. Most importantly, the sound of this rig is incredible. Crisp highs, deep lows, and everything pleasant in between. I can't say enough good things about this system. My big 16-channel, 4-speaker JBL system has not left the house in 3 years. This has far exceeded my expectations and I strongly recommend it for any solo performer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbeatable BOSE sounds Love it!!! Bravo to Bose Eng. who had invented this linear speaker with packed of features and the sound is amazing. I am not a musician but a group of friend often gathers at my place and play acoustic - Can't wait for a next gathering. I would give all 5 stars; however, I minuted one star due to a fact that it's lack of BT technology. Otherwise, this is a complete system to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Awesome! I bought this sound system for my son who plays in the three piece band and sometimes solo gig. What a simple and easy to setup and carry. The sound is outstanding!
