Bose L1 Model II systems are a high-quality, portable amplification system for musicians, singers, DJs and public speakers. This package includes Bose's critically-acclaimed B2 bass module, as well as an L1 Model II cylindrical radiator. It is portable, efficient, professional-sounding system.

These loudspeakers deliver wide horizontal sound coverage and a smooth tonal balance-across the stage and throughout the room. Lightweight and modular, this sleek system fits easily into a car trunk and takes just a few minutes to set up.

Like the original, award-winning Bose L1 system, the Model II sound system is an all-in-one innovation that replaces conventional monitors, mixers and PA speakers. And this professional sound system is packed with proprietary Bose technologies designed to improve your amplified sound.

The system's breakthrough loudspeaker produces wide, uniform sound coverage of nearly 180 degrees-onstage and throughout an audience of up to several hundred-with little dropoff in volume and tone.

The Model II system also features Articulated Array speaker technology for better tonal balance. The loudspeaker's 24 vertically mounted drivers are precisely angled to create clearer highs and more consistent tone in the room. Even people off to the sides of these stage speakers enjoy well-balanced, detailed sound.

T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine
Combining the T1 ToneMatch audio engine with an L1 system gives you exceptional amplified tone and sound processing capabilities. The compact, four-channel engine provides fingertip control of Bose's largest library of ToneMatch presets. Just touch a button to make hundreds of precise refinements to the sound of instruments and microphones.

The T1 ToneMatch audio engine is designed to enrich the sound of musicians using any Bose L1 system. Its powerful features and tone-shaping tools quickly bring you closer to the true sound of your voice and instruments. This versatile digital mixer helps you sound your best in live performances. It expands the input capacity of your L1 system and gives you instant access to a host of proprietary EQ presets, standard effects and processors.

Hundreds of sonic refinements-instantly
The ToneMatch audio engine puts Bose's largest library of customized presets at your command. These ToneMatch presets instantly optimize instruments and microphones for any L1 system, all at the touch of a button.

Different presets can be independently assigned to the engine's four channels. For example, select Audix OM5 mic presets for channels 1 and 2, Taylor guitar for channel 3 and Lakland bass for channel 4 - all at the same time.

Bose's engineers often work with manufacturers directly to expand the ToneMatch preset library. Updates are available to you free, with easy downloading via the engine's USB port.

Intelligent equalization: zEQ
Fine-tune your sound system with greater accuracy. Bose's intelligent zEQ redefines low, mid and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset. When you need to cut or boost specific frequency ranges for different instruments and mics, zEQ gives you the power.

Suite of effects and dynamics processing
Globally assign one of five different reverbs to each mic/line channel. You can also choose from three delay types, ten additional effects, and seven dynamics processors-and assign them independently to each channel.

Custom scenes
Store your customized settings for specific gigs with the Scenes feature. The engine comes with five predefined Bose scenes and ten you can define. Fast, one-touch scene recall helps you make quick work of repeat setups.

Easy connections
Simply link the engine to your Bose L1 Model II system via the included digital cable and rev it up. A sleek bracket is also included to attach the engine to the loudspeaker.

B2 Bass Module
This Bose L1 Model II system comes with a B2 bass module to ensure more accurate amplification of lower notes for most voices and instruments-including guitars, keyboards and various horns. The double bass package is recommended for use as a bass guitar amplifier, and for kick drums and DJs.

The Bose B2 bass module is a high-performance flexible bass solution designed for L1 Model 1S and Model II systems. It features two 10" high-excursion woofers mounted into a rugged enclosure.

For additional flexibility, the B2 includes a rear panel switch that allows for higher or lower bass levels to be selected based on application or personal preference. Proprietary Bose technology in the L1 systems automatically senses the switch position of the B2 and provides the proper equalization and power. Interlocking end caps allow up to two B2 modules to be stacked together. Includes protective slip cover and NL4 cable.

Applications include educational and business uses, such as announcements, presentations and training demonstrations for up to 300 people. It is also useful in portable applications within houses of worship, sporting events and many other instances where a PA and bass are required.

The B2 bass module is also ideal for musicians and DJs that require higher bass output and impact. Both will benefit from the flexibility of the three-position sensing switch. Simply switch to "+" for the maximum bass output. Full bands will appreciate the B2 module's higher output, which provides additional bass for kick drums and bass guitars.

The L1 Model II power stand weighs only 24 pounds, and its four retractable legs make it very easy to transport and set up. The power stand also has a simplified control section; the single line-level input can be used with instruments, mics, mixers, laptops, MP3 players or DVD systems.

All of the system's components are also built to handle the road. The loudspeaker has a rugged, reinforced grille, and each package includes padded carrying bags for major components.

Spatial Dispersion and Articulated Array speaker technologies in the loudspeaker produce wide, uniform sound coverage. The 24 small drivers are arranged using Articulated Array speaker technology in a slim, vertical enclosure-creating nearly 180 degrees of horizontal coverage and consistent tonal balance. The loudspeaker's two-piece, interlocking design makes for quick and easy setup, breakdown and transport.

Analog input, trim control and signal/clip LED for line-level analog input via ¼" TRS phone cable. Can be used for instruments or other audio sources like DJ mixers, MP3 players, computers or DVD systems.

Bass module out for amplified bass output signal to one or two bass modules. L1 system automatically adjusts equalization appropriately when bass modules are connected.

Bass line out delivers post-DSP bass signal output. Accepts ¼" TRS phone cable. Use to connect powered subwoofer, additional amplification system or Bose PackLite amplifier with up to two additional bass modules.

Retractable legs provide stability for streamlined L1 Model II power stand and loudspeaker. Four retractable legs fold out of power stand simultaneously for quick setup and compact transport.

Close Tables, No Problem!


from Philadelphia PA

Comments about Bose L1 Model II Single B2 Bass with T1 Audio Engine:

I use two of these paired with one T1 Tonematch to DJ. It is the best sound system I could possibly have hoped for. The 24 speakers are all arranged in different directions and the result is a more dispersed sound. Just this past weekend, I was caught in that awkward situation at a wedding where there was a table of old folks within four feet of one of the L1's. No problem, they continued conversation while a crowd of people danced about 50 feet away. Everyone was happy, I've never seen anything like it. The price may seem high for two but you may actually save money not having to buy another SUV. I can fit them both comfortably in my Sedan and mind you I use turntables which take up a ton of space in my back seat. I'd also like to mention that I'm a guitar player as well and these units really shine when someone is elected to sing or perform a song at a wedding or event. On the Tonematch, you can choose presets for a variety of different microphones for perfect and legible announcements. You can also add effects, reverb or add a compressor or limiter on your left and right to get the most volume available. Then you can save what you did as a preset. You can make different presets for different size halls, situations, or for your own enjoyment at home for that matter and recall them at the touch of a button. These things have a TON of headroom. I did two events where the neighbors complained about the noise but still people at the event were conversing comfortably. One side effect of the design I should mention though, both systems are mono, so if you send the same signal through both towers, you may have dead spots in your venue hall from the same frequencies hitting each other and canceling out. You can solve this problem by spacing the 2 towers from one another accordingly and or by having one side of your mix sent a bit more to one tower than the other through the AUX out on the Tonematch. I recommend this units paired with the B2 subs and T1 for DJ's, Bands, and pretty much anything. They can be used beautifully for small venues like a singer songwriter at a coffee shop or they can be used to fill a large venue with sound as a PA.

Comments about Bose L1 Model II Single B2 Bass with T1 Audio Engine:

I have been a been a non believer of the Bose equipment for a while. Needless to say, that all changed in March 2014. After 25 years of being a DJ I decided I didn't want to carry my old system around anymore because it was to heavy and took to long to set up. So I purchased two of the Bose L1 Model II with the B2 subs and one of the T1 Tone Match mixers. I set it up side by side with my old system (pushing over 6000 wats), the Bose crushed it. The next night I did my first gig with the Bose system it was amazing, I had them both set up and wired in under 20 minutes. The sound was amazing, the customer was extremely happy and I got several compliments on my setup.


Organ suitability?

Comments about Bose L1 Model II Single B2 Bass with T1 Audio Engine:

It finally arrived in good condition, and it is quite portable and easy to set up. It has been connected to a top of the line Technics FA-1 organ consol and most of the organ pre-sets sound pretty good through it. The pipe organ sounds are not true and need some more work. I have gone through most of the pre-sets on audio engine but can't hear much of a change. I've been the Elks Lodge organist in Florence OR for 20 some years, and the pipe organ setting is a very important sound for memorials and weddings. So it is still a work in progress for now. When there is over 100 people in the room, there has to be more than just the sound from the organ; hence the addition of a PA system that I can handle.

    I use these as a solo act, duo, trio, and four piece band. The versatility is amazing. The Tonematch audio engine really makes getting a good sound easy. And the setup/tear down time is cut in half. Plus it is a lot easier on my back! I only wish that the mixer had a few more channels to increase my versatility.

      I am in my 60's and have been playing in bands much of my life and have owned and still do some great equipment. Allen & Heath, Yamaha, JBL, Peavey, Crown, QSC and so on.... I have recently moved to a new area and currently not playing in a band. I purchased this system to practice, play some smaller venues etc... and wow what a system... It is light weight, sets up easily and quickly and the sound it outstanding. I haven't even tinkered with the Tonematch controller it sounds awesome right out of the box.

        Comments about Bose L1 Model II Single B2 Bass with T1 Audio Engine:

        I got my Bose setup shortly after they hit the market and got the high end one with the Tone-Match unit and one bass module. I do a solo accoustic show and a lot of my shows are outside. I love how easy it was to get the best system set up for my voice and the 2 Taylor guitars I use. This is so easy because of the presets available in the Tone-Match for my exact guitars as well as all the major vocal mics anyone would be using. I have never had to change these settings and I get comments all the time on the overall quality of the mix. Easy and reliable is so important when you are your own sound man! Also my own roadie so the modular, light weight system means I'm up and running very quickly. Just can't rave about this rig enough.
