“The reason I love the L1 for house concerts is because it guarantees the experience. It’s lightweight, you set it up, it doesn’t take up a lot of space, it sounds amazing. It’s pretty surreal technology.”

Jeff Barnett


"It's a joy to gig with the Bose L1 Model II! It does double-duty as both mains and monitors, and provides exceptionally even coverage over a large audience area. The B2 provides all the low end I could want, and best of all, the entire PA fits easily in the trunk of my car."

“Theres a million things about the Bose L1 system that are amazing. For one thing, if you just plug into it, it’s crystal clear – it’s phenomenal sounding. I plugged my guitar and it was just all the frequencies, puchiness, bass, and the high-end and the clarity that I’ve been looking for”

“The sound of the L1 system is just what we need – things sound right and pure, which makes us comfortable on stage. I am admittedly very picky about my vocals, and the L1 system helps me capture an authentic quality when I sing. And we couldn’t believe how light and easy to pack it was – with the amount of gear we have, that was key”

“The Bose L1 system and T1 mixer are the only way I know I can reproduce exactly the sound I want in any venue. The L1 system delivers great sound and the right dispersion – I set it up and I immediately have a 180-degree soundfield. For instance, I can plug an instrument mic into the mixer, call up that preset and I have the sound I’m looking for at the press of a button. We’ve tried using a variety of studio-quality microphone pre-amps live, but nothing comes close to the quality we get from the ToneMatch engine.”

“As a full time indie artist, playing a wide variety of venues (from clubs to house concerts, from theaters to busking) it’s paramount for me to have professional sound to represent my music. I would never think about leaving for a tour without my L1 and S1 Pro, where I get consistent, clear, and expert sound set up in just minutes”
