Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanne66 This " Baby Boomer" loves my Amazing Bose sound!
I have 2 Bose L1 Compacts connected to an Allen & Heath Zed 10 FX mixer.
I use condenser mics, Karaoke CD player & small TV monitor. My group performs for
free in Assisted Living, retirement communities...
We are all trained singers & appreciate the wonderful " stereo" sound this set up
provides. The audiences really appreciate the quallity of sound provided!
I have also used this set up for DJ Karaoke in Performance Center of my Clubhouse.Previously, I used 1 Bose L 1 compact with T1 Tonematch & it was very nice, but using A&H mixer was easier, for me, than setting presets for performences.
I also have covers made by Studio Slips for Compacts.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gina Mtz 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dotfrog One Word....WOW!
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophia C 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lele 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wolf Talker Increadible Sound
I finally broke down and made the jump to Bose. I bought the L1 Compact as it is the entry level system and I am mostly a singer/songwriter and perform as a single. I have heard other users say that the system sounds tinny or lacks depth, but I will argue that statement: The L1 Compact, one I had my levels and E.Q. adjusted correctly (I use a separate mixer), simply blew me away! I get clear, pristine highs, fantastic mids and the bass is not bad at all - considering the subwoofer is only an 8" speaker! The volume is impressive as well. Seems fairly easy to control feedback and if the unit is just behind me, no feedback at all! The on-board mixer works very well, but I have some extra gear that I must use a separate mixer for, so I don't use the on-board system. Going on my experience with this L1 Compact, I will not hesitate with my next purchase; upgrading to One or Two L1 Model 2 with the B2 Module and possibly the T1 ToneMatch mixer as well! The T1 Model 2's would easily fill a full house at most medium sized venues - with no monitors required! I would not hesitate doing some heavy DJ work with this setup either (the L1 M2 that is.) Bose hit these out of the park. They must be real magicians there - how else can they get such great sound from seemingly impossible small sizes of arrays?
Rated 5 out of 5 by Asto Easy con un suono perfetto
Preso dopo averlo sentito suonare a casa mia grazie ad un amico , sono ultra soddisfatto !! Che suono !
Rated 5 out of 5 by Karaoke Alex 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Carol 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?
