Bose L1 Compact Portable Line Array System
You've been searching for a portable speaker system that you can carry in a single trip, set up in a minute, and fill the room with premium sound. Sound familiar? If so, we'd like to introduce you to the Bose L1 Compact portable line array system, a fusion of conventional PA and monitors into one sleek unit unit. Weighing in at a laughably light 29 lbs, the L1 Compact delivers wide, even sound coverage up to about 180 degrees, maintaining sonic integrity even off to the extreme sides. It is small enough to fit in your trunk or back seat and as quick a setup as you can find, its innovative modular design playing a key role in its allure.
A different loudspeaker
Thanks to Bose Spatial Dispersion technology, the L1 Compact system's slim loudspeaker array distributes sound clearly and evenly throughout any room, its unusual vertical shape distinguishing it from convential PA speakers as as well having a profound effect on the sound coverage area. L1 Model I and Model II Loudspeakers project sound further with less volume dropoff than the L1 Compact however horizontal sound coverage is maintained in the same fashion.
Your days of carrying a separate mixer, amplifier, and bass cabinet are done, as they're already built into the L1 Compact. The system's power stand includes an integrated bass speaker and amplifier, plus a built-in mixer providing a total of four inputs and two outputs. Channel 1 is a microphone input with a customized ToneMatch preset for a handheld dynamic microphone. The preset automatically optimizes a handheld microphone's tone when used with the L1 Compact system. Channel 2 accepts up to three inputs at once, including a guitar, keyboard or other instrument, DJ mixer, MP3 player, laptop or projector. It features a customized ToneMatch preset to optimize the sound of an acoustic guitar.
The new L1 Compact system: audio performance, simplified setup and one-trip portability. Only from Bose.
