As the most portable L1 Pro system, the Bose L1 Pro8 portable PA is ready whenever you are. With the remarkable sound quality of an eight-driver articulated C-shape line array, the L1 Pro8 delivers wide 180-degree horizontal sound coverage, making it an ideal companion for shows in small venues like coffee shops and cafes. The wide horizontal coverage pattern means everyone in the audience hears virtually the same thing, no matter where they’re seated.
Weighing just 18kg (38.9lbs), the L1 Pro8 was designed for optimal portability, breaking down into a few easy-to-carry pieces, which makes for even quicker load-in and load-out. It ships with a travel bag to carry the line array, meaning you can take the base in one hand, sling the array over your shoulder, and still have a hand free to carry your instrument.
