The Bose L1 Model II is a unique system that uses Bose Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology to produce clear sound with balanced tone and consistent levels from the front of the room to the back, and even off to the sides. Using this proprietary Bose technology, the L1 systems combine PA and monitors into a single, highly portable unit that can be positioned behind or beside individuals on stage. This novel approach to amplification helps eliminate most issues with conventional PA systems, including excessive reverberation and extreme volume on and near the stage.

What makes the Bose L1 loudspeaker so different? It begins with shape. L1 Model I and Model II loudspeakers are a column of closely spaced small drivers mounted in a slim enclosure. This unusual vertical design has significant effects on the sound. An L1 loudspeaker projects sound waves forward and to the sides at nearly 180 degrees, but very little up and down, reducing unwanted room reverberation. Amplified sound also spreads out more evenly across the stage and into the audience, and the volume level drops off much more slowly than with a conventional speaker.

The L1 Model II system also features Articulated Array speaker technology for better tonal balance. The loudspeaker's 24 vertically mounted drivers are precisely angled to create clearer highs and more consistent tone. Even people to the sides of these stage speakers enjoy well-balanced, detailed sound.

This Bose L1 Model II system comes with two B1 bass modules to ensure more accurate amplification of lower notes for most voices and instruments, including guitars, keyboards, and various horns. This double bass package is recommended for use as a bass guitar amplifier, and for kick drums and DJs. B1 bass modules are considerably lighter and smaller than conventional bass bins required for the same performance. Power up to two bass modules on a single power stand. You can also add two more bass modules to the system with an optional PackLite extended bass package.

The L1 Model II power stand weighs only 24 pounds, and its four retractable legs make it very easy to transport and set up. The power stand also has a simplified control section. The single line-level input can be used with instruments, mics, mixers, laptops, MP3 players, or DVD systems.

All of the system's components are built to handle the road. The loudspeaker has a rugged reinforced grille, and each package includes padded carrying bags for major components.

Applications for the Bose L1 Model II System

The L1 Model II Applications:

Small and Mid-Sized Churches and Ministries:
Because of the design, the Bose L1 loudspeakers deliver unique qualities that align well with worship in general. Increasing intelligibilty of the spoken message while maintaining a full sound for inspired worship music makes the L1 models a great choice for the permanent sound system in a stationary building.

Mobile Churches and Ministries:
You'll be totally amazed with the setup time! Nothing, I repeat nothing we've found goes up and comes down as easily and as fast. The wide (nearly 180 degrees) of coverage you get from the Bose L1 systems means you'll be able go fill a good sized room with one L1 system. When using out of doors the throw distance is exceptional while not overpowering the people up front.
