The L1 Compact wireless package brings wireless music streaming to the L1 Compact. The L1 Compact system combines conventional PA and monitors into one sleek system. Positioned behind or to the side of a performer, DJ or presenter, it delivers wide, even sound coverage throughout the stage area and audienceeven off to the extreme sides. Its our smallest, lightest, easiest-to-set-up L1 system, weighing just 29 pounds.

• Spatial Dispersion loudspeaker technology features six small drivers mounted at precise angles inside a slim, vertical enclosure. This proprietary Bose technology delivers nearly 180 degrees of horizontal sound coverage. Sound remains consistent even at extreme sides of the system
• Integrated mixer in the power stand provides one microphone XLR input on channel 1; channel 2 has one instrument input, one RCA stereo input and one 1/8" stereo input. Both channels have two-stage clip lights, volume controls and a customized ToneMatch preset. Rear panel has one 1/4" balanced line output and one RCA stereo output
• Integrated power amplifier in the power stand delivers clean, precise amplification for L1 Compact loudspeaker and bass enclosure
• PA and monitors are combined into one lightweight, highly portable system. Proprietary Bose technology enables the system to be positioned directly behind or to the side of a performer, eliminating the need for separate PA speakers, stage monitors and mixers
• Proprietary ToneMatch presets optimize the L1 Compact system for a dynamic handheld microphone (channel 1) or acoustic guitar (channel 2)
• Two unique setup positions, extended (78.5" H) and collapsed (16.5" H), let you tailor the systems sound coverage for the room or event. For larger audiences, use the included loudspeaker extensions to elevate the array. For smaller gatherings and meetings, leave the array in its slot on the power stand and place the system on a tabletop
• Durable, lightweight, interlocking components make the system very easy to transport, set up and break down. The power stand weighs just 25 pounds, and the total system with loudspeaker and extensions weighs 29 pounds. No speaker cables, stands or bass modules required. The entire system can be set up in a minute or less
• SoundTouch Wireless Link adapter converts L1 Compact into a SoundTouch wireless music system allowing Bluetooth or Wi-Fi music streaming

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreNanaimo, British Columbia
I have used this system many times in small gigs. The sound is outstanding. Music is quite evenly distributed throughout a room. This is different than most PA systems and takes a bit of getting used to. The reproduction itself is very good. This unit does not have the bass cabinet, which is way too big to fit in my large car trunk with all the other music gear I take to gigs. So buying the Compact made a lot of sense for me. Like the description reads, you can actually carry the entire PA from your vehicle to the stage in just one trip. Some negatives a. I wanted to stream my favorite online music. The wireless software did not recognize and was not able to play my favorite top three online music sources: i) Aardvark Blues FM radio ii) Youtube iii ) ... so that really sucked. b. interconnectivity - with just two channels of input, and not a full array of connector options there could be room for improvement here. For example, in order to patch my stereo signal mixer output into the Bose it will only accept RCA inputs into the one mono channel - not the two XLR or 1/4 inch inputs I am accustomed to using, and not stereo. And there's no room for all of vocals, keyboard and guitar unless you use a mixer, not included. Positives + simple to set up + lightweight + excellent music fidelity Even without the additional bass cabinet, not included, this unit has a fabulous sound and I'm really happy with that. Rent one, try it out first.
