Easy-to-set-up, lightweight, professional PA system by Bose.

The Bose L1 Compact system combines conventional PA and monitors into one sleek unit. Positioned behind or to the side of a performer, DJ or presenter, it delivers wide, even sound coverage throughout the stage area and audience, even off to the extreme sides. It's Bose's smallest, lightest, easiest-to-set-up L1 system, weighing just 29 pounds.

The L1 Compact system's slim loudspeaker distributes sound clearly and evenly throughout the room, thanks to Bose Spatial Dispersion technology. The speaker's unusual vertical shape makes it distinctly different from conventional PA speakers?and has a very positive effect on sound coverage. Even audience and band members off to the extreme sides hear the same clear, tonally balanced sound as those in front.

The L1 Compact loudspeaker array is smaller than those in L1 Model I and II systems, but it produces comparable horizontal sound coverage. L1 Model I and Model II loudspeakers project sound further with less dropoff of volume than the L1 Compact array.

With the L1 Compact system, you don't have to carry a separate amplifier, mixer or bass cabinet: They're already built in. 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.

  • Professional quality sound
  • Two inputs
  • No need for monitors or amps

Comments about Bose L1 Compact PA System:

I'm shocked I'm the first review on this. I own a Fishman SoloAmp and used to own the L1 first edition. From a sound and conveinence stand point, this is the gear to buy. I liked the flexibility of the SoloAmp, but the sound from the Bose is awesome. I play acoustic solo and sometimes use a drum machine. The SoloAmp couldn't handle the DM without a subwoofer accompanying it. The solo amp is easier to move, because of the wheeled bag, but this is just an orange to their apple when it comes to portability. I use a Vocalist 3 instead of a Tone Match and it sounds incredible. This is one of the best purchases I have ever made and I believe it will help me get even more gigs, which I really don't need! If you are an acoustic solo player and want a quick in and out with great sound, this is the unit, period.
Sound is incredible. Compactness is great. I wish they would have made both channels flexible enough to take either 1/4" or XLR, with or without line level signal. Plus, having the low/hi EQ on both channels, would have been nice. Not complaining, just saying.
Standard Bose workmanship, sound and innovation. Nice that it includes the cover to protect it. I'm not big on all the plastic, though. But, it's built to carry.
Comparative to other integrated sound systems, great value for the sound. You can't buy a better sounding set up than this.
