Wide, uniform sound coverage.

The L1 Model II system delivers wide horizontal sound coverage and smooth tonal balance”across the stage and throughout the room. It includes Bose's smoothest, most consistent sound coverage with proprietary Bose Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology which lets you enjoy balanced tone and consistent sound levels from the front of the room to the back amd even off to the sides. It also comes with a stand that folds to be more portable, a B1 bass module, plus cables, power cord, and carrying bags for the various components.

Like the original award-winning Bose L1 system, the L1 Model II is an all-in-one innovation that replaces conventional monitors, mixers and PA speakers. It's packed with proprietary Bose technologies designed to improve your amplified sound.

The system's breakthrough Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker produces wide, uniform sound coverage”onstage and throughout an audience of up to several hundred”with little drop off in volume and tone.

The Bose L1 Model II system features Articulated Array speaker technology for even greater tonal balance. The loudspeaker's 24 vertically mounted drivers are precisely angled to create clearer highs and more consistent tone in the room. Even people off to the sides enjoy well-balanced, detailed sound.

Deep bass from small enclosures
L1 Model II systems come with one B1 bass module to ensure more accurate amplification of lower notes for most voices and instruments”including guitars, keyboards and various horns. A double bass package is recommended for bass guitars, kick drums and DJs.

The B1 bass module is considerably lighter and smaller than conventional bass bins required for the same performance. Power up to two bass modules on a single power stand. Add two more bass modules to the system with an optional PackLite extended bass package.

Lighter and more compact
L1 Model II systems are Bose's lightest, most compact live amplification systems”with four retractable legs on the power stand for easy setup and breakdown. The power stand also has a simplified control section; the single line-level input can be used with instruments, mics, mixers, laptops, MP3 players or DVD systems.

These lighter systems are built to handle the road. The loudspeaker has a rugged, reinforced grille, and each package includes padded carrying bags for major components.

Powerful option: ToneMatch audio engine
Add the optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine to quickly expand the system and fine tune your sound with powerful, proprietary tone-shaping tools.

The compact, multichannel engine provides fingertip control of the Bose library of ToneMatch presets. Just touch a button to make hundreds of precise refinements to the sound of instruments and microphones.

The engine also features a complete suite of studio-class reverbs, additional effects and dynamics processing. It connects to the L1 Model II system via a single digital cable for quick, streamlined setup.

The Bose L1 Model II system includes these features:

Cylindrical Radiator and Articulated Array technologies ” The loudspeaker's 24 drivers are arranged using Articulated Array technology in a slim, vertical enclosure”creating very wide horizontal coverage and consistent tonal balance. Musicians and audience members to the sides and throughout the venue hear fuller, more detailed sound with little dropoff in volume and tone.

Two-piece, interlocking design ” For quick and easy transport, setup and breakdown of Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker. Each section of loudspeaker is 43 1/2" (1.1m) high. Unique, proprietary design includes interlocking bayonet and center and bottom latches.

Power Stand
Integrated power amplifiers ” Provide clean, precise amplification for L1 Model II system with up to two B1 bass modules. Musicians can play soft or loud, with confidence the system will accurately amplify their performance.

Analog input, trim control and signal/clip LED - Line-level analog input accepts 1/4" TRS phone cable. Can be used for instruments or other audio sources like DJ mixers, MP3 players, computers or DVD systems. Trim control lets you adjust the level of analog input signal.

Retractable legs - Provide stability for streamlined L1 Model II power stand and loudspeaker. Four retractable legs fold out of power stand simultaneously for quick setup and compact transport. Small footprint also frees up room on tight stages.

Bass Module
Compact, lightweight enclosure - Easy to transport, setup and breakdown. Small footprint takes up considerably less space than traditional bass cabs required for same performance. Fits between legs of power stand. Interlocking feet on the modules make it easy to securely stack up to four modules together on their sides.

Highly efficient speaker design ” Two 5 1/4" (13.3 cm), high-output, high-excursion drivers produce deep strong bass from an elegant small enclosure.

Heaven in an amplifier


from Scottsdale, AZ

Of course it's more then an amplifier. The Bose L1 Model II System is also a pa system. It is just what I needed to showcase my acoustic style of music. I've had beautiful guitars for years, but I've never found anything that was so versatile in bringing the warmth and smooth tone to my guitars. The sound is so crisp and so clear it really gets the creative juices flowing. With the B1Bass Module and the Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker I'm finding that my sound has the circumference and the spectrum to fill the room with a perfect mix of highs and lows. With the optional tone match engine, I now have many ways to bring new clarity to my music. The Bose L1 Model II System have put my vocals out front in the mix more then ever before. I've always had compliments about my vocals, but nothing like the overwhelming positive reaction that I received since I started using my system at gigs last month, The Bose L1 Model II System is so very easy to set up and tear down. There is so little to do from going to carrying cases to gig ready. It is also very light weight and doesn't require that I have to have a huge workout moving my equipment before I play. That was always the case when I had to set up my amp and pa system before. I would highly reccomend this product to anyone looking for a musical life changing piece of equipment.
