Excerpt: I've been meaning for sometime to simplify my live gig sound reenforcement and wished I hadn't waited so long. Transport and set-up were my main reasons, but I've now realized the added benefit of fantastic natural sound.
Excerpt: I couldn't be more pleased with my unit. We are an auction company and use this system inside and out. We also play music through the system and it is impressive. You won't regret this purchase. Well worth the money.
Excerpt: I bought this system for our Karaoke family night. All I can say is we were all BLOWN AWAY. I've been around and used PA systems for 40 years. This system just beats them all. I own another large PA system for larger venues but for small to medium size rooms, this is my go to PA. Buy it!
Excerpt: I am a solo performer of vocals, acoustic guitar and digital piano. The Bose L1 Model II System has revolutionized my performances. Even in outdoor venues, it provides amazingly even sound over large or small areas.
Pros: Easy to move, Easy to set up, Incredible sound quality, No Monitors Needed, No Speaker Cables, Reliable, WOW factor
Summary: Yes, it's alot of money but if beautiful sound is what you want you need to part with some cash. I was also impressed with the way it arrived. Well packed, very nice travel bags. If you can, get the B2 Bass unit. It's fantastic. Now I can sell some of my other amps. No need to keep them.
Summary: For the last couple of years, I have been debating on if I should invest in these Bose speakers. The price was on the high-end and they did not look like that they could put out much power for the price.
Summary: I have been using this for small indoor and outdoor events with acoustic singles and duos. It has a great sound that is spread evenly. I recently played a large hall (holds about 500). I brought my old jbl 15" system with my Mackie 808s and 2 15" monitors as backup.
Summary: This is a great product - no question. I used a pair of these for a smaller gig with a four-piece band and some DJ'ing in between sets. In a venue where space was very much an issue, the L1's were indispensable and sounded just as good, if not better, than bringing in a bunch of traditional PA cabs.
Summary: I really like the sound system. Easy to setup and sounds great. 3 stars because PA quit working less than 2 years after purchase. Main power supply shorts on/off. I put out help request on bose forum but didn't get a response.
