Bose L1 overview

  • 1Description

The L1 Model 1S with B2 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 B2 Bass Module and the power stand are designed to connect quickly and easily and do not require speaker stands. All components fit into the included carry bags for storage and transport.

The included B2 bass module is designed to deliver high-performance low-frequency output for applications that call for more powerful bass, such as bass guitar or DJ applications. Designed for flexibility, the module includes three different bass settings. The normal setting is ideal for bass guitar or when miking a kick drum. The high setting is designed for DJ and music playback applications. The low setting works well for acoustic guitar and vocals.

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
B2 Bass Module
The B2 bass module design features two 10" (13.3 cm), high-output, high-excursion drivers that are designed to produce deep, strong bass from a small enclosure. Three level settings provide different settings of bass output. 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

    Bose L1 reviews

    L1 Model 1S with B2 Bass Portable Line Array PA Speaker System is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This system changed my Music life, for the better! I perform with a 7 piece acoustic / Bluegrass band, with 4 vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Dobro, Upright Bass, Pedal Steel and Piano. All acoustic instruments are mic'd. We currently use two L1 / With B2 Bass modules to the left and right of the stage, and one Bose L1 Compact at the rear of the stage as an added monitor to help the players in the back. This setup is revolutionary in every way. Sound is utterly superb, and despite all the hot condenser mics, there are minimal feedback issues. Our stage mix is identical to the FOH, so there's never any "what did it sound like out front" questions. Comments from the audience usually include "I can hear every instrument like it was right in front of me", This system also replaced a monster system that took up an 8' trailer and took 2 hours to set up and tear down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal sound, clarity and sound coverage! I can't say enough about how well these units perform in any setting. I've played these with full bands, and solo, and the sound quality is so rich, clear and even that everything else I've used pales in comparison. Nearly every show, multiple people comment on how amazing the sound quality is, without having to be overly loud to reach the whole room sufficiently. Just a phenomenal product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank You Bose After a couple of consecutive gigs where we dragged in monitors, mains, a mixing board and snake only to have the venue unhappy with us for taking up so much space and having a less than stellar night due to bad onstage mixes, (not to mention being too loud to the audience and feedback issues) we decided to bite the bullet and invest in two L1 Model 1S systems with B2 bass. We just played our first gig with them on Saturday night and it was nothing short of awesome! I was worried at first when we got a little bit of feedback issues because we could only get about 6-7 feet away from the units, but once we got it dialed in, it was incredible. We played at a reasonable level with no real ear fatigue afterwards. So many people in the crowd commented on how good we sounded that we can never go back to the old way. So great. Thank You Bose for making the purchases worthwhile. -Mike (NYC)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dream speakers I dj for bars and wedding receptions. Hands down these speakers are the best in my opinion. I've gotten alot of comments on the sound quality. People find it hard to believe that it's coming from these speakers. Then I point to the name.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST option for general acoustic group use We are a 4 person acoustic Bluegrass/blues/roots/originals band with vocals, some mic'd instruments and some DI input instruments. After fighting with big nasty directional speakers/monitors/stands for years. I finally grit my teeth and bought a Bose L1 1S with B2 bass module. We run into the Bose through a Mackie 16 channel mixer using 7-10 channels, and use the single tower and B2 as all our sound and monitor. AWESOME sound quality and clarity from small coffeehouses to large outdoor beer gardens ( 3-400 person areas ). ZERO feedback issues even running it very loud set behind us. AMPLE BASS even in big open areas. I use it as a PA for other more "electric" groups in the same settings and it performs flawlessly for all types of groups. One thing for new users to note is - even though the Bose L1 is very feedback resistant, use as your monitor requires ample distance either behind you or diagonally from you so it is not too loud for your players. Protect your hearing! We're learning to consider ourselves the "closest audience member" in terms of setting the overall volume, and try to get the tower at least 8 - 10 feet behind us or better still to the side slightly back of us. The linear speaker tower spreads an even 180 degrees of sound and the drop-off is minimal using my db meter even 30-40 feet away, and fades slowly so you need not "crank" it too loud at the source in our experience. The retail price was bracing, but as I added up the cost of decent powered speakers, stands, a couple good floor monitors and all the cabling monkey business for that stuff, the Bose L series became pretty reasonable, and is WAY easier to set up fast and transport. A perfect solution for acoustic groups playing in a lot of different venues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Bose Purchase Simply put, This is the best PA I've ever owned. It's lightweight, sets up in minutes, and absolutely kick butt, I can't think of a single venue that this system won't easily handle.
