Bose Unveils the New L1 Pro Portable Line Array Family



The Bose L1 Pro portable line array systems advance a PA category invented by Bose into a new era of on-the-go audio for singer/songwriters, mobile DJs and bands.


Bose Professional has introduced the Bose L1 Pro portable line array systems, the next-level advancement of a PA category. The L1 Pro systems bring in a new era of on-the-go audio for singer-songwriters, mobile DJs and bands. The three new systems, the L1 Pro8, the L1 Pro16, and L1 Pro32 with its choice of two subwoofers offer 180-degree horizontal coverage along with unmatched clarity and tonal balance. A RaceTrack woofer design integrated into the L1 Pro8, L1 Pro16 and the Bose Sub1 and Sub2 modular subwoofers, provides extended base response and less bulk, making the subwoofers much easier to transport, carry, and fit onstage. Built-in multi-channel mixers offer EQ, reverb and phantom power, while Bluetooth streaming capabilities and access to the complete library of ToneMatch custom EQ presets, allows performers to play with recording-studio tonal quality.

These three new portable PA systems are designed to give artists choices, suit different styles and audiences, and provide a solution for creators reintroducing live music and sound experiences into venues and online platforms across the world today. The ultra-portable L1 Pro8 provides a perfect solution for intimate spaces; the portable L1 Pro16 performs exceptionally in small-to-medium spaces; and the peak-performance L1 Pro32 is a portable system for entertaining large audiences.

“The new L1 Pro family gives users an ideal balance of performance and control on stage and portability everywhere else,” comments Craig Jackson, Portable PA Category Manager for Bose Professional. “We took what our customers loved about the original L1 systems and focused on making improvements in almost every dimension. The L1 Pro family delivers more output and bass extension than ever before and doesn’t compromise on portability. We’ve expanded the I/O and integrated ToneMatch technology allowing users to quickly optimize the sound of their instruments and microphones. And with our new L1 Mix app complete control of all mixing functionality is available from mobile devices.”

The Bose L1 Pro portable systems are complimented by the L1 Mix app, placing complete wireless control in the hands of users for on-the-fly tweaks via controls that are both intuitive and instant. Performers can adjust mixer settings via phone or tablet from the stage, or even walk the room, hear how the mix sounds, and fine-tune on-the-go. Volume and tone settings can be changed in the app as well, with users able to watch the LED encoder move to match.
