    Product Description

    Bose L1 Compact Portable Line Array System; Powerful and Portable with Unmatched Clarity!
    Delivering powerful sound with exceptional clarity for small to medium-sized venues, the Bose L1 Line Array PA allows you to hear exactly what your audience hears without the burden of lugging around or setting up monitors, mixers and complicated PA systems. Based on over 10 years of groundbreaking research, the L1 Compact features Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology, available only from Bose. The loudspeaker's proprietary, vertical design helps fill the room with clear sound like no ordinary concert speaker can.

    Bose L1 Compact Line Array Features

    • Ideal for musical performances, mobile DJs, classrooms, presentations and other events
    • Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology
    • Two ToneMatch channels with fixed presets
    • Integrated mixer
    • Integrated power amplifier
    • Integrated bass speaker in power stand
    • Two setup positions: collapsed for smaller spaces or extended for larger ones
    • Compact and Portable

    …Like other products in Bose's L1 family, the L1 Compact breaks down to a portable, easy-to-carry configuration that is small and light, yet loud...

    ... Unlike big, boxy PA systems that feature large speakers in heavy cabinets, the Bose L1 Compact system consists of a tall, slender cylindrical speaker array with six small speakers arranged to disperse sound with about 180 degrees of horizontal coverage, two extensions that elevate that speaker array…, and a compact Power Stand base with a built-in amplifier, mixer and bass speaker.

    Spatial Dispersion™ loudspeaker technology
    The L1 Compact features six small drivers mounted at precise angles inside a slim, vertical enclosure. This proprietary Bose technology delivers nearly 180 degrees of horizontal sound coverage. Sound remains consistent even at extreme sides of the system.

    Integrated mixer
    Built right into the power stand, the integrated mixer provides one microphone XLR input on channel 1; channel 2 has one instrument input, one RCA stereo input and one 1/8 inch stereo input. Both channels have two-stage clip lights, volume controls and a customized ToneMatch preset. Rear panel has one 1/4 inch balanced line output and one RCA stereo output.

    Integrated power amplifier
    Loaded into the power stand, the integrated power amplifier delivers clean, precise amplification for L1 Compact loudspeaker and bass enclosure.

    Compact and Portable
    PA and monitors are combined into one lightweight, highly portable system. Proprietary Bose technology enables the system to be positioned directly behind or to the side of a performer, eliminating the need for separate PA speakers, stage monitors and mixers.

    Proprietary ToneMatch presets
    The ToneMatch Presets optimize the L1 Compact system for a dynamic handheld microphone (channel 1) or acoustic guitar (channel 2).

    Two unique setup positions
    You can set up the L1 in a way best suited to your venue; extended (78.5 inch height) or collapsed (16.5 inch height). The L1 Compact allows you to tailor the system's sound coverage for the room or event. For larger audiences, use the included loudspeaker extensions to elevate the array. For smaller gatherings and meetings, leave the array in its slot on the power stand and place the system on a tabletop.

    Durable, lightweight, interlocking components
    Bose' L1 Compact system is very easy to transport, set up and break down. The power stand weighs just 25 pounds, and the total system with loudspeaker and extensions weighs 29 pounds. No speaker cables, stands or bass modules required. The entire system can be set up in a minute or less.

    After two and a half years still going strong!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Bought this 2 1/2 yrs ago through American Musical. Fastest delivery on the east coast. I was thinking I need a backup. I use this almost every day. I'm older now and do the nursing homes. But still rock on week ends. In and out of car two shows a day four days a week plus the clubs. People are amazed!! I was thinking JBL eon one? My local store had them side by side. Big room with noise. Bose out shined JBl hands down...and I've always used JBLs in the past. Maybe the EON one needs a good mixer but as it stands one on one I could not get a good sound with just a mic through JBL . Had the Volume up full. Bose not even half way.

    Quality Sound
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Glad I got this system because I know you can't go wrong with Bose. Superb sound that can be heard throughout the room. Going to pick up another one in a few months to use for small parties so I don't need to bring out my QSC's and Speaker Stands and spend all that time setting up when I can do it in under 5 minutes with this system!

    From Icky To WOW in 5 Minutes!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've been using BIG Pa systems for more than 40 years of live performances and decided to make things easy on myself. I thought about the Bose Compact for a few years and decided to try one at a local music store. Sounded great in the store so I finally ordered one from AMS. It arrived today and set up was as simple as could be. Plugged in my Taylor T5 and a Shure mic and after the first few notes I thought "This sucks!" I fooled around with it for a few minutes, and in about 5 minutes the sound grew on me. Within the first 1/2 hour I was smiling from ear to ear. It was the first time I could hear everything perfectly clear with no muddiness in the mix. Kinda threw me back a few minutes until I realized what crystal clear sound really sounded like. Have a whole series of concerts coming up over the next two months and this system is a keeper for sure. Give yourself enough time to aclimate to what you really sound like, add a few effects, and a Behringer mixer for depth. GREAT SOUND!

    Better options than the L1 Compact, for less money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Good sound, but only for very small venues. There are currently better choices for less money. I have performed repeatedly with a friend who owns the L1 Compact. I respect his choice, but would not own this unit myself, as I feel it is a poor value for the money spent. Both LD Systems and HK Audio (among others) have superior solutions, in my opinion.
