keyb78's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Try bose L1 stage"

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator
I recently had the opportunity to see what type of equipment on scene at a party with 4 musicians. The singer and guitarist were on this system. Accordionist and pianist myself were on a traditional system sends (front). I found the sound of the Bose L1 + 2 bass extremely efficient at disseminating particular back of the room (200 m2). For cons, the volume of the Bose L1 does not allow us to speak during the evening on stage was extremely unpleasant.

This system is very specific and will never replace good old facades and returns that can be adjusted at will, without obligation to scream on stage to make himself understood.

I think the Bose L1 is made for restaurants / taverns that do not require a big power and sound that can be used such as "piano bar" and / or facilitators in supermarkets.

Its price is still quite expensive. Overall, this system is very nice for groups who can afford L1 2 systems with 4 bass and place them in front. The system returns remains a must for true comfort
when did the scene several musicians.

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator
I use (I 2) for four months. Buy a new one with a box (who served in BMD) and a price INTERESTED Used with two boxes.
I tried all kinds of sound for small venues or bars. I got tired of wearing heavy gear, long install, gnrant sound pressure often teachers for listeners, with his little prcis!
What I like most is the ct practice, rapid installation, the compactness of the simplicity and comfort sound quality for us and for the public.
We use two L1 rpter (which way), for bars and small rooms where there is no budget sound system. We 01V96 an upstream branch is where many instruments (piano, guitars, bass, ukulele, sanza, pod, various percussion, etc.). The 01V96 is a large part in the quality and precision rendering (prcise legalization, effects, compression per channel). I also used to amplify an L1 only a classical guitar but lacked a lgre rverbration and I got my AIM Galise lgrement.
Obviously for a real with a real budget is more sound returns!
I waited in vain to compete in this type of product.
This product is expensive (at least for me) although when compared to any current Systm line array with two speakers and an amp it is easily four times cheaper not to mention the added returns. J'espre it profitable within a year!!
Currently Obviously I would do this choice, as there is not too much choice if one seeks a report qualitprix / weight / mounting galre / fun!

How long have you use it?

II l1 I bought a week ago, I dballe, horror, stand n'tait not new, and had used dj silent! Back to the sender, so the store. Standard exchange without question, but waiting for 5 days, good! 2nd test on my deck with my trio, gt song, singer, bass and squence: super! I will not say rpter this quiadj t!

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

+ The quality of sound, we hear very well everywhere, installation and lgeret the system!
- The feedback is soon became apparent, I forgot my seinheiser ksm 105, and resumed my (big) BETA58 or my 58 sm, c'tait dja better. I may be missing on the mastery of tone match!
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
A ton! I will not mtendre the above. I've always had very good sound RULES. This should parfaitementa the piano bar and club (duo, trio, singing and jazz). I think less of rockers.

How do you report qualitprix?
Okay if you do not have to add a subwoofer system oudix.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ...
I ask because APRS test three days that seemed conclusive rpeter, Pette, at home, in time of a small terrace of a cafe concert, the amp, so the new base nine, never wanted to leave a sound. Have to call a friend to bring me a traditional system to make my sional !!!!! Then you will understand that I am careful when the reliability of the system. Of course I went back to the store and I have another, I try this weekend, but with a sound back! I would give this bad experience after ultrieurement!

Bjr all musicos I am a singer guitarist and a little keyboard uses sound for 15 years and I must say that even when the gas to room somoriser of even very large we still too much power then was thinking more of 4 das DS8 150 w ev and two 300-w and it really enough for me while I have far too RCF 500 A powerful must see especially the rooms not the stuff of pregnant aujour of hui and very good but the room and he horible the problem then the HP 38 and yes hello mess with your big subwoofer that gives the brothel not listen to music and especially your sound on the outside and then you'll understand in a room friendly JACK

dave-grohl's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator
I use this system since June 2007.
What is most significant is the purity of sound, ease of setting, the remote control system, and reduced feedback compared to a conventional system. Very significant, too, the ease of transport. Once a row, it does not take place.
This is somewhat detrimental, is the lack of stereo, but for use in stage, bar, which is fine, especially for a rock band and a major use for singing.
I tried many systems. The entries range often have a disastrous, and those with a good sound are expensive.
The value for money is excellent.
After the experiment, I am not at all disappointed. This system is ideal for sound to a single voice or instrument, for rooms up to 200 people. His power is very good, and the qualities praised by the manufacturers are real, especially the fact of hearing the same sound as the public. Strictly speaking, Bose ment just saying that there is no feedback. There's always when the microphone fell just in front. But it is much less.

A purchase so if you can afford and if we want to make a use as described in this notice.

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator
I use it for almost a year and my opinion is mixed. First I did not know it was mono, and I do not understand why since there are 2 columns each with an amplifier. I useful formula "piano bar" with a synth workstation. Most of the sounds in stereo sound not at all. The solution for the stereo is obviously to take two, but then the price would become prohibitive to me from a very good sound "classic" and very cumbersome for small spaces. Moreover, contrary to comments I have read, I have a lot of feedback! Otherwise, the sound is good but not super utilioser latofs. I also think to sell ... or buy a second for stereo.
Ah! I was forgotten HUGE bumps in the low to the point that I could not make use of C #! not easy to translate to VIEW! lol. The addition of an equalizer seems to me indispensable! This obviously complicates the convenience of the product!

jacques_csny's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator early February attended a demonstration of the Bose L1 at the headquarters of the firm in Saint-Germain en Laye. Impressed with the sound quality of the L1 is a revolutionary new amplification system for musical live performances, we wanted to know more about this product and test it with the help of musicians and professional sound technicians.

To achieve the real tests in different configurations, the Bose has made available to our team and our partner Workshop 58 two configurations with two subwoofers (see photo cons).

- The first test "Live" was created by a group of pop-rock "The Bases of Taxes" to the "735 Club" Margny-lès-Compiègne 60280, Friday, Feb. 16. Another L1 was made available to the group by the Harmony Music store in Saint-Quentin (02).

- Both L1 were then test for a week from 17/02 to 24/02 in the studio Atelier 58 in Montreuil with the participation of many musicians.
The article is composed as follows:

- Presentation of the L1 and list of issues cited by Bose
- Summary of tests
- Video and commentary with three L1
- Videos and comments from the tests in the studio
- Links (partner websites, Bose and documentation)

Our opinion in a nutshell:
we were convinced of the qualities of L1. It is most satisfactory in its price range. Of course it is always possible to find a cheaper equivalent system in the configuration of broadcast stereo (two L1 2 sub) for the same performance but technical constraints much larger and more substantial in size. If for you the price is not an obstacle, given its ease of use and its broadcast audio solutions, it can become overwhelming and soon be part of the landscape of mobile sound.

VOXsounds's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Bose L1 Cylindrical Radiator
I have since the end of December 2006
I do not return the technical data, rather my impressions here:
the concept (light, very compact) tipped me to this choice. Several repeated and a concert was enough to reassure me fully (I bought without trying) over too lazy to install everything for 2 hours, less fatigue before and after concert because of transportation, unless you go- return car to search for and return the gear. The sound quality is to go (I do not operate under the required conditions, since I just config 2). It means great on stage and the audience (100 people for my concert) heard perfectly. From outside the room you wonder how the public can handle such a volume and once inside you realize that you can hear himself talk, but we say that musicians should take the ears and in fact it's very comfortable on stage, and no feedback !!!-. This system is clearly revolutionary. I am not 10 because I do not exploit it optimally ... But I remain very skeptical about a utilistation an audience of 800 people as I read it! In my opinion this system is perfect for an audience of 250 people max ...
