Hi - came across this elsewhere, may be of interest to the US DJ's. Not sure if I like the idea personally.

Offered by Bill (info@entsyscorp.com 800-582-2421). Slip covers are made from flame retardant spandex for the Bose L1 radiators.

Available in white for $ 37.50 each and in select colors for $ 64.00

This was also my thought, which was why I stated that I was not sure if I liked the idea. Could have some benefit but do not feel that it would enhance anything in my particular situation. Thought I would post in case anybody thought it was a good idea and feels it would enhance their presentation.

I beg to differ.

I like them!
I would only use them within a wedding that had a "WHITE" theme, where everything else was draped in white/light colors.

This would allow the L1 to blend in to the background and not be a tall BLACK stick.

Again, I bought these not only for their clarity and visual uniqueness, but also for something that would blend nicely with the decor of the nice venues I play.

Nice price for those covers.
I will have to order some, just for future use if needed.
The picture is provided for L1 users to view the concept.

The white versus an all black set is indeed horrible (I know because it's my setup and it skeeved the hell out of me) but that shouldn't be where imaginations halt.

If using an L1 for a ceremony where everything is traditionally white and frilly, this covering would transform a black highly visible and obtrusive L1 into someone almost invisible. Perhaps then,in that scenario, this spandex stocking would not be such a bad idea, especially to a bride-to-be.
I am looking for somthing that will keep people away from the speaker and protect it. Like some sort of square toward the bottom keeping people from steping on the base part.A barrier of sorts to keep them like 2 ft away.This way they won't put there hands on it (what I call the stripper pole effect) as well as keeping them from stepping on the bottom. Maybe some sort of cloth type wrap (so the sound isn't effected) that spans from one side across the front and to the other side.

Question: Can I make a custom grille cloth?

Cliff-at-Bose[9] tells us:

Normal polyester "double knit" cloth is available in an endless variety of colors and patterns. It passes pretty much the entire range of sound and is often used as grille cloth by all manufacturers. A "sleeve" can be easily made by anyone with a normal sewing machine, simply by doubling up the fabric and sewing a seam up the long way, topping it off too. So, make the seam, turn the sleeve inside out and you have your color-of-choice stretch-fit slipcover disguise for your system. --- Cliff-at-Bose[

It does exists - it's a conventional speaker on a tripod.

One could make a protective box 5" high w/ hole in the middle and open rear. Paint white and apply the sock.

In fact, one could make a wooden case for the PS1 that would both protect from impact and spills during use. Make the hole in the middle and place a rubber 'lip' around the edge to keep fluids from entering. Have a detachable rear cover. The rear can store the remote and a few cables. Add metal base for screw type legs and you have an instant PS1 riser.

Hmmm - I must try this.

This is true, but is it really worth it when the B1's are sitting by the L1 also? Now you have a white stick and black boxes...

I thought about this when I first got my L1 in September. After getting on made for myself, I decided I didn't like the look of it at all.
Jeremy G: Not defending nor dissing the product, however everything depends on the setup and setup location and whether or not the power stand is exposed to the eye or not.

As you noted, and personal preferences are all over the map, it does look strange if the entire L1 (stem to stern) is exposed to view.

Should the need arise, at least I know they are out there and where to get a set (should the need arise).
