The Bose L1 Compact system combines conventional PA and monitors into one sleek unit. Positioned behind or to the side of a performer, DJ or presenter, it delivers wide, even sound coverage throughout the stage area and audience, even off to the extreme sides. It's Bose's smallest, lightest, easiest-to-set-up L1 system, weighing just 29 pounds.

The L1 Compact system's slim loudspeaker distributes sound clearly and evenly throughout the room, thanks to Bose Spatial Dispersion technology. The speaker's unusual vertical shape makes it distinctly different from conventional PA speakers?and has a very positive effect on sound coverage. Even audience and band members off to the extreme sides hear the same clear, tonally balanced sound as those in front.

The L1 Compact loudspeaker array is smaller than those in L1 Model I and II systems, but it produces comparable horizontal sound coverage. L1 Model I and Model II loudspeakers project sound further with less dropoff of volume than the L1 Compact array.

With the L1 Compact system, you don't have to carry a separate amplifier, mixer or bass cabinet: They're already built in. The system's power stand includes an integrated bass speaker and amplifier, plus a built-in mixer providing a total of four inputs and two outputs.

Channel 1 is a microphone input with a customized ToneMatch preset for a handheld dynamic microphone. The preset automatically optimizes a handheld microphone's tone when used with the L1 Compact system. Channel 2 accepts up to three inputs at once, including a guitar, keyboard or other instrument, DJ mixer, MP3 player, laptop or projector. It features a customized ToneMatch preset to optimize the sound of an acoustic guitar.

Best portable PA in the market!

By Patricio Notholt

from Mexico city, Mexico

Comments about Bose L1 Compact PA System:

i bought this originally just to practice my DJ'ing, when i first heard the quality of sound and the volume this thing had, i was pretty impressed. The bass response is amazing and with the volume this thing has it can fill up a large room, but with two you can fill a small party! it doesn't really matter where you stand at an angle of 180, the sound is exactly the same. i started using it to plug in my guitar and a microphone and let me tell you the guitar jack has no EQ, because it really doesn't need it. it sound very natural. the only knobs you use are the volume knobs. and with this you don't really need to use a monitor. This is definitely worth if you are a DJ, want a pa for music playback or play acoustic guitar and vocals

One man band, one man PA

By The Home School Music Guild

from Hampton, Va.

Comments about Bose L1 Compact PA System:

Ever since I bought this piece of equipment back in 2006, I've never been disappointed. It was truly worth the investment. The projection distance, clarity and the depth of the subwoofer is superb. I've connected my keyboard,(the band)and two wireless mics to this system with no problem. I incorporated a behringer mixer for more effects and more sound tweaking. It took my sound to a level of professionalism that I've never heard before. My flute, soprano, alto sax and tenor saxes never sounded better. Thanks
