Overview

The award-winning Bose L1 Model I system allows you to hear the same quality sound your audience hears. Based on over 10 years of groundbreaking Bose research, this all-in-one amplification system features the unique Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker. Its proprietary, vertical design helps fill the room with clear sound like no ordinary speaker can.

Wide, uniform coverage”throughout the room

The innovative Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker has a line array of 24 small drivers mounted into a vertical enclosure for wide, horizontal sound coverage. In comparison to a conventional speaker, volume and tone diminish very slowly over distance.

The loudspeaker's wedge-shaped dispersion pattern sends very little audio up or down, preventing much of the room reverberation that can muddy your sound. In contrast to a conventional setup, an L1 system lets you, your fellow musicians and the audience hear the same sound. You don't need any other stage monitors, mixers, or PA speakers. Your L1 system replaces them all with one sleek, powerful setup.

Built-in amplifiers, mixer, and ToneMatch presets

The L1 Model I power stand includes built-in amplifiers to drive the loudspeaker and up to two B1 bass modules (sold separately). It also has an integrated four-channel mixer with two XLR and two line-level inputs.

Onboard ToneMatch Presets”another Bose exclusive”let you quickly optimize the tone of up to 100 specific instruments and microphones,
at the touch of a button. For more inputs and a suite of effects and tone-shaping tools, add the optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine.

L1 Model I Cylindrical Radiator Speaker

The L1 Model I Cylindrical Radiator Speaker is an integral component of the Bose L1 Model 1 system. The unique Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker comes in two sections and has a line array of 24 small drivers mounted into a vertical enclosure for wide, horizontal sound coverage. This proprietary design helps fill the room with clear sound like no ordinary speaker can. In comparison to a conventional speaker, volume and tone diminish very slowly over distance.

The loudspeaker's wedge-shaped dispersion pattern sends little sound to the floors, upper walls, and ceilings, minimizing room reverberation and increasing clarity. In contrast to a conventional setup, the L1 system lets you, your fellow musicians, and the audience hear the same sound. You don't need any other stage monitors, mixers, or PA speakers. The L1 system replaces them all with one sleek, powerful setup.

The L1 Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker features a two-piece, interlocking design for quick and easy transport, setup, and breakdown. Each section of loudspeaker is 43-1/2" (1.1 m) high. It includes an interlocking bayonet with center and bottom latches.

L1 Model I Power Stand

As well as being the mechanical support for the Bose L1 Cylidrical Radiator loudspeaker, the Bose PS1 Power Stand houses the amplifier and mixer for the 4-channel system L1 system.
