By | July 18, 2016

Spend less time setting up your equipment and more time rockin’ out! The new Bose L1 Model 1S system is a portable line array system that is a powerful fusion of both portability and performance. Its compact size and lightweight build allow for quick and easy setup, yet it still packs enough power to fill a mid-sized venue. This system is great for solo musicians, bands and public speakers. The L1 Model 1S system is available with either a B1 or B2 bass module, and the optional ToneMatch audio engine. Here at Muzeek World, we also offer different packages with dual B1 modules.

Versatile PA Placement

The vertical design of the system’s small, closely spaced drivers enable the L1 Model 1S system to send sound both forward and to the sides—producing nearly 180-degree coverage—but with minimal up and down, minimizing unwanted reverb. This allows for consistent tonal balance as sound is spread more evenly across the stage and into the audience. In addition, the volume level drops off much more slowly than with a traditional speaker.

Special Bose® technologies allow the L1 Model 1S system to function as both PA and monitor. It can be placed behind or next to the performer. On top of that, you hear exactly what your audience hears. With the L1 Model 1S System, you’re in total control, and there’s absolutely no need for traditional monitors, mixers and PA systems.

Portable Convenience

The L1 Model 1S system is composed of three major parts: the upper array, lower extension and power stand. These parts can quickly connect without other speaker stands. Both setup and takedown take only a few minutes. As if that wasn’t enough, every major component stores neatly into the included carry bags, allowing for easy transportation.

Compact Modules. Powerful Bass.

The Bose L1 Model 1S System is available with either the B1 or B2 bass module. Here at Muzeek World, we also offer packages with dual B1 modules. The B1 bass module is Bose’s more portable bass module. It’s dramatically lighter and smaller than traditional bass bins that would have been required for the same occasion. In addition, it guarantees precise amplification of lower notes for most voices and instruments. With the L1 Model 1S system you have the option of an additional B1 module (for a total of 2), or use just one B2 bass module for even greater versatility and power!

Multi-channel Versatility

The optional T1 ToneMatch audio engine adds four additional channels, so you can bolster the system and connect even more instruments and microphones. You can also use the ToneMatch engine to tailor your sound with powerful, tone-shaping tools only available in select Bose products.

This compact, 4-channel engine gives you next-level control when it comes to your sound. Enjoy a plethora of options with the integrated ToneMatch preset library. Just touching a single button can make hundreds of precise adjustments to the sound of your instruments and/or microphones. The engine additionally includes an entire suite of premium reverbs, effects and dynamics processing. It connects to the L1 Model 1S system through a single digital cable for fast and convenient setup.
