Focus less on your gear and more on your music

L1® portable line array systems provide an approach to live sound different from other systems. Using proprietary Bose® technology, L1® systems combine PA and monitors into a single, highly portable unit. The loudspeaker can be positioned behind or to the side of the performer—and you hear what the audience hears.

L1® systems feature a unique and highly effective vertical design

L1® systems feature a unique and highly effective vertical design: a column of closely spaced small speakers mounted in a slim enclosure. An L1® loudspeaker projects sound waves forward and to the sides—delivering 180-degree coverage—but very little up and down, reducing unwanted room reverberation. The amplified sound spreads out more evenly across the stage and into the audience, and the volume level drops off much more slowly than with a conventional speaker. Lightweight, interlocking components are easy to transport and set up. And the distinctive vertical loudspeaker enclosures don't require separate speaker stands.

ToneMatch

One-touch tone optimisation
Customised ToneMatch® presets offer another distinct advantage in achieving exceptional tone. Just select a ToneMatch preset for a specific microphone or instrument, and the channel's tone is instantly optimised for use with the L1® system. There are more than 100 ToneMatch® presets for a variety of popular microphones and instruments, often developed with the help of the manufacturers themselves.
