Bose L1 Compact System
The BOSE L1 is for very small structures.
Otherwise buy another model for better comfort and sound quality.
I sold this system to something else. Musically Yours

jetlag's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect for my use"

Bose L1 Compact System
I'll try to have a considered opinion without falling into the anti bose obtuse and fanatical fan marketing Taliban. So I ask those who read this review to keep a head reading the triptych price / quality / use

I am a singer and guitarist soundman a pop / rock. Was repeated once a week and we made a couple of dates a year - we are not beginners but not pros, we all midlife and we love the quality of both the sound of the instruments. See lmes comments in the forum on the conditions of use.

How long have you use it?
2 years in the first instance, I bought one to put in my rehearsal room of approx. 35m2 for lead vocals, both singers and keyboard. The Amp guitar, bass and drums are not transplanted. After a year, the resulting sound corrspondant our expectations, I bought a second for small prestas by providing us our big sound and our four returns.
Bottom line, we do our dates with indoor and outdoor, and it holds up to 150/200 people without worry. Voices, keyboard and bass are transplanted. Bass amps are managed separately.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The modular concept, it's not heavy, it fits in 10 minutes, we need returns, it is broadcasting, it does not take place on stage (or in the car) and it is not ugly at all and it does the job in sound term. 'Tention, we are not attorneys in the pro gear, whether it be clear .... but again, it does the job ...
What I like least is the plastic side struts. it's a little fragile, but at the same time, once in place, it no longer intended to move.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Well, it's been 25 years since I make music and I saw a few sound systems. The big shits and much better. None amounted / dismantled in 10 minutes while the job! However, in terms of more ambitious ds scene, do not think about it.

How would you rate the quality / price?
While there, € 1,000 for an individual, it is a little Chero and a pro, it's nothing. for the group, so we have two € 2,000. Overall, since it replaces returns, amps and a facade, I would say that by adding the concept, rappport Price / Quality is excellent. I remind those who dismantle their gear after a three-hour concert at the good memories of their back, legs etc. ... where you fall in the sound ten minutes and hop in the trunk of the body.
Overall, we happened to lend us see a small van to rent ... it is finished.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
It is said that by not buying a third and a fourth to increase our capacity for listeners.

Well, not feel free to PM if you want to know more.

Bose L1 Compact System
Hello I want to buy my first sound. Singer I am, I work alone, sometimes on both bands sounds with my guitar. I want to feel good for me and my audience. I went on Yamaha 600i, but they trimmed that even if I buy two speakers, I have to add money to subwoofer for better sound. Overall 2OOO in EURO. Is Bose Li and best solution for 1000 euro. Is 2 Enceints Yamaha 600 i is better than Li?
Thank you

A little pricey but good investment

Harleybat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super compromise"

Bose L1 Compact System
With my group we went from one classic façade system over a set bose back without regret singer-guitarist has l1 model 2 bass and electronic drums on two out of l1 compact subwoofer jbl eon 518 s on a small table macki fx8 pro 'or we connect 2 microphones for coeures. The gutariste ritmique a cmpacte l1. . To live of the result was surprising the lack of light in the medium compact fasilement coriger the equalizer table c is great. Instalation 15 minutes and above all esinstalation (after a concert pus the late hour) as bonneur Car and 2peties sufise or he was 5. More back and all the group's mean and hears other perfectly and is principally made of pus its disaines calbles partous For dj. The best configuration after several tests: sortire the table directly to the subwoofer and then take the second exit or monitor output for both l1 compact but the mini jack input for MP3 or planned computer highs are much moin aggressive and result of all is super ....... Although the puisansse is limited to 200 people when we make more we rent a facade and we'd definitely choose it without ésiter. We also essaille four l1 model 2 with 2 boxes bose chaqun but the result for almost double the price (apart the upper puissace a bit) is not sufficient to change

YanMacDuff's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amazing"

Bose L1 Compact System
I bought it for different reasons:
- Firstly, its ease of implementation, installation, transportation.
- Secondly dissemination and clarity of sound is amazing. We really feel like in the middle of his.
I tested in different configurations: directly by plugging an SM58 vocal mic and various guitars, a mixer, ipod. It is clear that the voice and electroacoustic guitar blend perfectly with the system. The sound of the voice is very clear and the guitar sound very dynamic, preamps are very good.
The system seems to be sized for one or two musicians but I tested it with three voices and three guitars through a mixer. The record is perfect and no problems with feedback. on the other hand I was less convinced by the connection of an electric guitar through my multi-effects, I found that here lacked bass.
Now I'd like to test two Bose L1 Compact connected to a table and see what we can get stereo rendering.

Bose L1 Compact System
I utlise dexu evenings and thoroughly test a day

No I did not try other models

MAUI LD system to 28

bose is the build quality very bad, and it is far from the power advertised.

value for money that's not it.

The big plus is its weight, that's all

babiou21's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Concentrate Bose"

Bose L1 Compact System
Used for 9 months, repeated local, bars.
I put in vocals, guitar (Mesa preamp) and synthetic (bravo for Input 2, which accepts three signals simultaneously).

I used to two 502 systems, low and satellites.
I was looking for the "all in one hand." Already there, it's happiness mounting within a minute here and is in a safe scooter!
It sounds a little more "hifi" than the normal L1, but on vocals and acoustic guitar is ... Fusion!

The ToneMatch on the mic, redefined the sound of an SM 58, but can not be used with a static (DPA 4088).
Moreover, no power supply 48V, it is a sign ...
S'te please Mister Bose, a switch to "disengage" the ToneMatch on version2 ...

I will repeat this choice because I want the stereo ...
Well, of course, here is the absence of any Bose system: the four digits on the bottom right of the bill ....

Bose L1 Compact System
I can say that it is a versatile, practical and good quality sound trs.

I confirm that voice for the record is enjoyable trs, bass and treble are very hot Submitted on ToneMatch Intgr its rle played wonderfully.

I advice not to use if possible mixer just as you would have to remove the ToneMatch, and it becomes difficult to grate the feedback on the mixer, for a fact against the ToneMatch alone, and be less than 1M of L1 and the power to 3 / 4 does not catch you.

Finally, the exceptional product lgret

sebseul's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Bose l1 + compact ToneMatch"

Bose L1 Compact System
We are a trio of acoustic guitar, electric guitar and bass. We have just acquired a compact l1 coupled ToneMatch. After the first rehearsal we stayed glued by the sound quality and ease of use. We connected the microphone voice (beta 58) l1et directly on the three instruments are passed through the ToneMatch (acoustic guitar and bass directly into the table and electric guitar in the table through a tube amp). The ability to add reverb, compressor and easy to resolve Eq allowed us to have a sound never reached (habitual use by repeating table + 2 + evp12p tube preamp picoverb +) in 10 minutes. Most surprising is the actual hearing of all the instruments in the mix and the clarity and depth of the bass (the passages are beautiful bow and vibrato really agree). The microphone plugged directly into the L1 sounds of hell, there needs no adjustment. The diffusion of the sound is great and obviously the reserve power needed to irrigate about 100-150 people I think.
It is unusual to have a compact ToneMatch for l1, most people using this engine usually having the largest models. Well I think it's a pity because the record is great. We plan as soon as finances permit to add a l1 compact in order to play on the stereo. Ultimately we got the compact l1 + ToneMatch the new (I said) for ... Attention 1100 euros! The value for money is simply monstrous. If we add a compact l1 we arrive at a cost of 2000 € for a high performance stereo system, which is again very correct. So here, I think if some people think buying a l1, we must think rather from a double-CD than on a simple model 1 or 2.
