Bose ® L1® systems
Focus less on your gear, more on your music
Bose ® L1® systems are complete, portable PA systems that deliver clear, balanced sound and set up in minutes. A proprietary articulated line array delivers 180-degree coverage, consistent tonal balance and less SPL drop-off than conventional systems. Models are available for audiences of 100 to 500. The line array’s wide coverage and high resistance to feedback allows you to position the system behind you and hear what your audience hears. The lightweight components connect easily without the need for speaker stands and are built to withstand the rigors of the road.
The L1 Compact system is ideal for audiences of up to 100 while the L1 Model 1S system is ideal for audiences up to 300. The L1 Model II system reaches an audience of up to 500. Each model offers a different level of integrated I/O, overall performance and portability.
L1 systems feature a unique and highly effective vertical design: a column of closely spaced small speakers mounted in a slim enclosure. An L1 loudspeaker projects sound waves forward and to the sides—delivering 180-degree coverage—but very little up and down, reducing unwanted room reverberation. The amplified sound spreads out more evenly across the stage and into the audience, and the volume level drops off much more slowly than with a conventional speaker. Lightweight, interlocking components are easy to transport and set up. And the distinctive vertical loudspeaker enclosures don’t require separate speaker stands.
