The Perfect PA for the Singer/Songwriter
The Bose L1 Compact system joins extreme portability with phenomenal sound. At the heart of the speaker system is Bose's Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology. Its ability to deliver sound evenly, both across the stage and throughout the audience, makes the Bose L1 Compact an all-in-one monitoring system as well as a small- to midsized-venue PA — all while weighing in at only 29 lbs. And the integrated 2-channel microphone/instrument mixer on the rear of the Bose L1 Compact removes any need you may have for an external mixer.
All-in-one PA and Monitoring Solution
Thanks to Bose's Spatial Dispersion technology, one trip from the car to the stage ensures you'll have your full PA system and monitoring system in one hand. The Bose L1 Compact system has six small drivers inside a vertical enclosure — all positioned at precise angles. The result is nearly 180 degrees of even horizontal sound coverage. This delivers even sound dispersion across the whole range, including the audience or the stage. Instead of dialing in a stage monitor while wondering what the mix sounds like from the crowd, with the Bose L1 Compact, you'll always hear exactly what the audience hears.
On the back of the Bose L1 Compact power stand, you'll find a convenient 2-channel mixer. The first channel has an XLR input for your vocal microphone. The second channel has a 1/4" input for your guitar, plus stereo RCA inputs so that you can connect an iPod or a laptop to play backing tracks or music between sets. And these are Bose's elite ToneMatch channels. Bose has preconfigured presets for a vocal microphone and an acoustic guitar, so it'll sound great, with no tweaking necessary. You'll find that your vocals retain clarity and a full-sounding presence, while your acoustic guitar shines through with all the harmonic content and richness you enjoy acoustically.
Small, lightweight, and easy to set up
Apart from its excellent sound, maybe the best part about the Bose L1 Compact system is that it's easy to carry and set up. You won't need to call in help just to get the system into the gig, and you won't have to labor through tons of cable connections and audio-testing steps. Weighing just 29 lbs., the Bose L1 Compact is light enough for one musician to carry, and it sets up in under a minute. You can also choose between two setup positions, depending on the space you're performing in: a collapsed position for smaller spaces and an extended position to fill larger rooms.
