The L1® Compact portable line array system: Carry it in one trip. Set it up in one minute. Fill the room with Bose® sound. The 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 13.15 kg.
Now you can have quality Bose® sound for almost any gig, event or occasion. The L1® Compact system is small enough to fit in your boot or back seat, and its innovative modular design makes setup easy and fast. You can arrange it in either a collapsed configuration for smaller spaces or a taller, extended configuration for larger ones. No extra gear to haul. No heavy speakers to hoist onto stands. No speaker cables.
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 customised ToneMatch® preset for a hand-held dynamic microphone. The preset automatically optimises a hand-held 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 instruments, DJ mixer, MP3 player, laptop or projector. It features a customised ToneMatch® preset to optimise the sound of an acoustic guitar. The L1® Compact system: audio performance, simplified setup and one-trip portability. Only from Bose®.
