Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
Anytime you are dealing with Bose, the first thing you should look at is the price tag. This speaker system is very expensive! It cost almost 3000 dollars. The sound on the Bose L1 Model II system is very good, it is clean and the bass is amazing. The design of this system is worth a lot of money alone, you can fit this whole system in the trunk of your standard size sedans trunk because its not a big system and it looks a lot bigger in a picture than it really is when it shows up at your doorstep. The base speakers alone weigh 25 pounds and the two loud speakers weigh a little over 15 pounds a piece. They are all well built and beautifully constructed.

The balance of Tone is amazing and the sound is great for multiple home purposes. The sound that will come out of this system seems to spread and fill a room very well. If you are just trying to listen to some tunes from home, then you have got to have this system. You can take this system from room to room with you or wherever you want and it will deliver a top of the line sound that only Bose knows how to do it best.

Setting up the Bose L1 Model II was actually pretty easy though it does look difficult when you are looking at the manual. For some reason the manual for this system makes it look like rocket science but you don’t even need a manual to set this up. Using this system it wont matter where you take it, it will sound great. From outdoors , clubs, or home use it will give you a big clean sound for your listeners. But the bad part is that the price is so high, there are other systems out there that do not sound as good as the Model II but they can get close, but the best part is they cost about a 1000 dollars less than the Model II. So if you are tight on money I would not stress over having these. There are other systems out there that have similar sound. Everything from Bose is just so expensive.

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
I use the Bose L1 sound systems for a decade, and I am 100% satisfied
I have an L1 Model II with two subwoofers for large scenes, and a Bose L1 Compact bars, hotels ...
All equipped with the mixer Tone-Match, essential for me and so effective.
For nothing in the world I would go back to the heavy sound.
But before using Bose, I was equipped with big speakers on foot, very heavy and bulky which should be added returns. Bose it's all over!

What I love most: the reliability, ergonomics, weight, efficiency, sound, ease of use, saving space in small places, the power (low speed or at full power), originality, design ...

What I like least: NOTHING!

Compared to large bulky + feet + wiring enclosures, the value is more than adequate, knowing that when you have tasted Bose is not back on something else (personal opinion)

Without hesitation I would do this purchase.

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
use for 7 months.
34 years of experience with the group until orchestra over the years, collecting different sound Altec, JBL, EV, APG, HK, ect ... YAMAHA mixer, Studiomaster, Allen & Heath, Samson, Korg, Yamaha digital full range to the 01V96.
+ The sound quality and ergonomics, efficiency prestats with this sound.
the least: the price a little high.
To develop this a little sound has its place for dances up to 200 people. Coverage is simply spectacular, more can be very ready to play the sound in confined areas (less than a meter from the speakers without feedback).
I use 2 boxes plus 4 l1 bose stereo output of a digital mixing for a variety rock trio (keyboard song, singer, guitarist sequences support + bass, drums) and DJ wedding or private party.
I listened to the hk elemnt in the same register but it does not play in front of the enclosure, I find the sound "BOSE" very thin for my taste, it seems to play in stereo and the bass is quite incredible given the size of HP.
has now I could not do without.
For skeptics who do not believe that little play before, a picture that will let you appreciate the distance microphone, speaker of the singer.

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Following the test 23/072009! so 6 month trial!

</span> After the galleys of the beginning, I have so far had problems with defective !!!!( read my article 1).
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">For use,</span> I think it's a perfect product for the piano bar and club (with a single tower and a subwoofer) max duo or trio,
terraces or style of pubs, as long as it is against the wall, is the best! (STAGE FOR SOME FOOTBALL MOINSSSS !!!!)
To the outside, big or great room, two systems must ABSOLUTELY least three if the entire group (bass / beats, keyboard, vocals, etc ... And yes, it lengthens the note!

<span style="text-decoration: underline;">The sound</span> is true that it sounds a bit stereo, very clean a little metal if you use the ToneMatch, but great with a small Soundcraft, Lexicon effects incorporated, then one gets there quickly!
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Notes client to restaurant owner who wanted to place at the table:</span>
Clients: not next to the speaker packs boxes please!
The boss, but they have no speakers!
Guests: Ah! good! good, well then that's good!

It is true that friends who are coming here to see / hear, we appreciated being able to speak without yelling while hearing the music clearly. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">

Feedback</span> to <span style="text-decoration: underline;">the</span> power 5 / 6 is faster then a duo with two beta 58, if you're back to the column and on each side, the logic hp quiconces (alone and in the axis it does not) A moinssss to have a scene of 15 m wide. In the breast pocket handkerchiefs, I took a sm58 for me and I let the beta to my singing, some gallantry that deuce, and the problem is solved! But the more we play hard (and it was moinsss need this, because it gets along fine without feedback) requires more distance, 2 / 3 meters is the minimum. Remember, the more it is more acute and serious! old Chinese proverb!

<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Price,</span> ale, ale, ale!! Well yes, it is not given, I think a price 2000 euros for a column / box / ToneMatch would be correct
(That's not bad for us poor musicians and other artists that we are!)

<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Weight, space and assembly time</span> we speak (just maybe he should not be a big heavy with big clumsy hands for installation!
aesthetics, oh! it's beautiful and quiet, and I quote "it blends completely into the environment" as one recently told me a casino manager!

<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Then comes the (my) conclusion!</span> I am saying is one thing: <span style="text-decoration: underline;">TRY IT</span> if you can, because tastes and color: As nothing is perfect, I put 9 for the price and the galley of the first, but I know!

PS: I'll try the compact L1 soon, I'll keep you juice! Happy Holidays!

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
For how long have you been using it? What thing do you like most/least about it? Did you try many other models before getting this one? What is your opinion about the value for the price? Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

I use it for two months. My use is a little margin because I'm playing guitar "electric" and not "acoustic". Population guitar is pretty conservative as everyone knows and I think many will doubt my words, though .... I can only encourage them to test themselves ... I doubted myself a lot of opportunity there to play it like a guitar amp because the system is presented more as a sound system for acoustic instruments and singing. But the sound and especially the popping sound is masterfully restored. I do not really see any significant difference with a guitar amp lamps ... Of course, I had to rework my sounds and adapt them to Bose. Using an HP calculator is obviously essential. I tested with a preamp Rocktron Voodu Valve and software with Guitar Rig 3. That giant ...
The peculiarity of the L1 is to restore the sound in the same way regardless of the place of the listener ... The audience hears the same thing so that the musician and that he is in front, side, far or near. No need to back then. The cons part is that you really play clean because the sound is very precise, detailed and clear. I tested outdoors in front of 300 people in my home studio (40 m²) is really amazing. I play on BT Satriani, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, Santana, Gary Moore, Hendrix, Toto, Carlton, etc.. Many people told me they had the impression of listening to a disc, so the sound was nickel.
What I really like is of course the convenience and light associated with its huge gear. Especially as using as a Chapman Stick and a MIDI converter for playing synth sounds, I have all the same ...... boiboite The space saving is significant and it is much easier to manage ...
I had a lot of amps before, the sound systems too ... No equivalent!
The price? It's expensive for sure but given all that it replaces, it is not that much.

I would do without hesitation that choice, especially since I enjoy the "promo" Bose summer mixer ToneMatch was delivered free (500 euros won ...).

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
We make the choice to buy this for a month, and really there is no regret.
The space is minimal trs, installation is very simple and fast trs. I sound reinforcement from the mixer, we are a country band, rock, blues ballads as there are two guitarists, a bassist a drummer and a male voice fminine. No need to return the musicians peroivent are the same as the public. In a room of one hundred person I turned only half the volume. It power but more importantly a pure clear sound of bass rsons well. A real treat for all musicians, and technician public. When one sees her two little columns can not think what it DGIG.
The small BMOL the price and yes it wrong cass a piggy bank but his calves every penny.
The choice was pressed again I think we take it back. I give a note of trs occurs.

Bose L1 Model II with B1 Bass
Hi all!

j made my own small edifice al!
hot hot the debates here

then me, I have to buy the Bose L1 Phase 2, with the ToneMatcht and 2 subs primarily a duo (keyboard and vocals) animation restaurants. (rooms from 150 to 300)

Until SCTP particular concerns, the sound is nikel, no matter the source.
Now I find my taste a little low limit high volume (all controllers noon) and I plan to add 2 subs with amp, but it also depends on the style of music.

For feedback, not known (Shure Beta 58 or HF Neumann KMS 105), you can enjoy the same sound as the public, need to return!
The clientele is every time surprised that the sound comes out of the "tube", and some have already craqu to the system!
There are a few times, j avai song has me sparcar I thought buying more powerful for the same price, but my brother who plays him on the Montarbo (sw550 and MT350) convinced me otherwise, epoustoufl the quality and rendering the system, so he goes shopping for a!
It is also true that in the beginning, I exploitai rather poorly the Tonemacht (rotten manual!)
The AC would like the road!
Another point, not least, the size / weight is insane!
I do not ruin my back with systems outside weight!
And the icing on the cake, it goes in my AX

I also wanted to say that in the final, even if it sysyteme is very good for what I did, the use that I actually didn t one Bose advocated, namely, 1 L1 musician!

In the future, j is considering a second round with two subs for the stereo.

And if I continue with this system is mainly for its c compacitplus we grow, the more c's hard (phew, I'm only 36 !!!)

So much for my user perspective
