Bose L1 Compact Portable Line Array System
Bose has done it again!
Couldn't be happier with this system! Easy to set up and beak down, portable, and the quality is above all else! We are always asked to bring this system to family BBQs. It's pure, clear sound that you will only find with Bose. You will not be disappointed.
This system is great for small rooms. No big bass out of the sub, just a all around solid sound.
We purchased for Zumba class for our summer camp. We love the clarity and sound is inbelievable. It gets all the campers moving and the visiting volunteers. It fills the rooms with beautiful quality sound.
I researched this for 6 months before making the jump...and after unpacking, setting it up, and plugging in the acoustic and mic I was playing, literally in minutes. What I heard was amazing, the guitar was cleaner than I have ever heard and the vocals came out crisp and sharp. Hooked up an iPod and played some favorites, my neighbor 6 houses down heard it clear as day and it was not even pointed towards him and only at 50% volume. Don't beleive what you hear about this unit not being able to push the sound. Only thing I did not like is the hard coded pre-set tone match for guitar and vocals but that will be corrected by getting the T1 mixer. I am more than happy, more than amazed...but it is Bose! I just got this 2 weeks ago and have been asked to do a Grad Party and 2 weddings just from me playing around with it.
I highly recommned it!
Great As ALWAYS!!!
I bought this for my fiance as a birthday present as he is a musician. He already had a larger Bose portable system but needed a smaller one for smaller venues that he plays. It is so lightweight therefore easily portable and works amazingly. I already knew he'd love it since Bose has always had the best sound with all of their products and that it is the only brand that he trusts. I would definitely recommend for ANYONE in this line of work.
Really Great for the Professional
My husband is a mobile DJ. He not only has these but he has the Bose L2 model as well. Depending on the venue is depending on which setup he takes (also how many channels he needs the L1 only has two channels). He also uses the compatible Bose mixer too. The sound is perfection! First the slim design of both the L1 and L2 systems ALWAYS draws attention from clients and guest alike. Then the sound clarity in such large spaces is amazing.
The truly great thing is unlike other professional sound systems the Bose L1 and L2 systems disperse the sound in such a way that you can actually stand right next to these speakers and not go completely deaf. We can take requests without yelling ourselves hoarse when trying to speak to guests. If there would be one downfall to the L1 over the L2 is that one time he did have issues with distoration due to power issues at the venue in conjunction with the setup he used (normally he runs two laptops, mixer, cd player, etc). While it only happened once with the L1 (and he plays all the time in many different size venues) it has never happened with the L2.
The other amazing feature is that these break down and become very portable and easy to transport from place to place. I can carry two sets of these into a place at the same time without the aid of a cart. We always joke that we have the best sound system in the neighborhood (the kids love it on nice days when he opens our garage door and runs through his playlists to ensure all the songs work before he shows up and the song mysterically cuts off at the wrong time). I keep telling him to retire so we can hook these up in the house and have the best sound system indoors too. But I know it would be too much for such a small space that I have and my Bose surround sound system is really awesome!
