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.

The loudspeaker's proprietary, vertical design helps fill the room with clear sound like no ordinary concert speaker can.

  • Integrated mixer
  • Integrated power amplifier

…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.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
I already had one Bose compact now I have two, I also own the L1 M2 and a L1M1. Setting up tow of the Bose compacts is much quicker and lighter. One will cover a group of 100 so it give to reason two of them should cover up to 200 people. I've used them for groups of 150+ with great results.
