Bose L1 overview

  • 1Description

The Bose L1 Compact Audio PA System delivers the audio fidelity expected from Bose in a sleek, lightweight and portable unit that's ideally suited for travelling musicians, presenters, mobile DJs, and for lectures, worship, etc.

The L1 features a 2-channel mixer amplifier that also serves as the speaker's base. The mixer features an XLR microphone input, RCA line input, 1/8" mini line input and 1/4" phone input that may be switched to accept line or instrument signals.

Six small drivers are carefully positioned into the compact speaker to ensure balanced audio signal at the direct and off-axis (sides) of the L1. Setting up the L1 is quick and easy; simply place the speaker extensions into the amplifier base, and slide the speaker on top of the extensions. Two extensions are included, and allow easy height adjustment.

Spatial Dispersion Loudspeaker Technology
Six small drivers mounted at precise angles inside a slim, vertical enclosure. This proprietary Bose technology delivers nearly 180 degrees of horizontal sound coverage. Sound remains consistent even at extreme sides of the system.
Integrated Mixer
The power stand / mixer provides one microphone XLR input on channel 1; channel 2 has one instrument input, one RCA stereo input and one 1/8" stereo input. Both channels have two-stage clip lights, volume controls and a customized ToneMatch preset. Rear panel has one 1/4" balanced line output and one RCA stereo output.
Integrated Power Amplifier
The power stand / mixer delivers clean, precise amplification for L1 Compact loudspeaker and bass enclosure.
PA & Monitors are Combined
Proprietary Bose technology enables the system to be positioned directly behind or to the side of a performer, eliminating the need for separate PA speakers, stage monitors and mixers.
Proprietary ToneMatch Presets
ToneMatch presets optimize the L1 Compact system for a dynamic handheld microphone (channel 1) or acoustic guitar (channel 2).
Two Unique Setup Positions
With extended (78.5") and collapsed (16.5") positioning, you can tailor the system's sound coverage for the room or event. For larger audiences, use the included loudspeaker extensions to elevate the array. For smaller gatherings and meetings, leave the array in its slot on the power stand and place the system on a tabletop.
Durable, Lightweight, Interlocking Components
The lightweight interlocking design makes the L1 very easy to transport, set up and break down. The power stand weighs just 25 pounds, and the total system with loudspeaker and extensions weighs 29 pounds. No speaker cables, stands or bass modules required. The entire system can be set up in a minute or less.

    Bose L1 reviews

    L1 Compact Line Array PA Speaker and Mixer System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bose L1 is a Winner! Almost all good things to say. Easy to set up and use. Easily fills a 40' x 40' room with crisp clear voice when used as a PA. Controls are easy & intuitive ..... the only thing wrong is the on/off switch is all the way down just 1 off the floor on the back of the unit so you have to get down on hands & knees to turn it on/off ..... inconvenient to say the least. All other controls are right on top. We used one of the two inputs for a presenter's mic and connected the other to the sound output of a laptop computer so we could have soundtrack and live voice-over. Overall, very pleased with the sound quality and ease of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says, and very nicely I use this system for my solo and duo gigs. I use the T1 Tonematch, which I think is a must with these systems. I run guitar, vocals and backing tracks (bass, drums, keys) thru the Compact, and have ALWAYS received great compliments on the sound. Sound carry is exceptional without blasting out anyone's ears near the front. With the T1, you can tweek this thing to sound any way you wish. I have performed many times outdoors with it as well, and it has been great. Wedding ceremonies, backyard parties, large park settins, etc. It has performed flawlessly. Sound is incredible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From 802's to the L1's I have happily used Bose 802's since the '70's and finally got a pair of L1's. 1-Wonderful Bose sound! (I have used them with and without the extentions) 2-Set-up/tear down time is simply amazing! (Can't stress this point enough) 3-The light weight is is also a nice touch! 4-Oh, and they look great as well. Go Bose. You have done it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, great sound, very portable. I always had my doubts about this compact system. I've owned bigger PA systems, and I wanted something smaller, lite, compact and easy to set up. I'm amazed with the volume I can get out of this. Works great with or without the Allen & Heath ZEDi-10FX Hybrid Compact Mixer which I'm using for more control.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! I really like the L1 compact. It reproduces vocals in a very natural way and has all the power I need for small to medium gigs. In larger gigs it still works, as a monitor and support for the main PA, you just send a line to the PA with your sound. Very easy to move around and set up. It can be somewhat limited in functionality for some people that might need more power and several of these for a band gets expensive. But the idea of having your sounds come from the physical placement of each musician is a very natural way to perceive music. A great idea. It won't take the place of a good guitar amp or especially a bass amp, but for other instruments that usually just go direct to PA or vocals, it's fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this PA system!!! I’ve been using the L1 system for a couple of months and it’s changed my music performance a great deal! I bought this PA for its compact, low profile look originally, but ended up loving its sound performance as well. I look forward to expanding my system with other Bose products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver at our retirement community Bought this great compact system several years ago and use it in many different spaces of our retirement community with enormous success, for speakers, singers, and music played by Iphone. It's true that other instruments' amps can overpower vocals - but that's a matter of having someone listen and mix the levels from audience perspective. I wish the system accommodated a lapel microphone. Does the L1 Model I do that?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best investment so far as a DJ. I bought mine 2 years ago and it is still going strong. Heads turn when they hear the sound that comes out of these speakers. The base moves the floor and gets people up and dancing. I get compliments everywhere I go foe the quality of the sound and the amazement of its size. I mainly use mine for karaoke and everyone just loves how they're voices sound. I love my Bose.
