Hi Proxykiller,

Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable PA Community.

Here's how to connect two L1® Compacts. Click the picture below to see more details.

In the video you mentioned, the fellow is making the connection from the first L1® Compact line out to the second L1® Compact channel 1.  This is not recommended because this will run the signal on the second L1® Compact through the ToneMatch microphone preset.  You want to connect to the second L1® Compact through channel 2 with the ToneMatch switch set to Line Level.

The most reliable connection is to use a balanced cable. If this is a fixed installation, that's a one-time inconvenience.

If you want to use a wireless connection you will replace the orange line above with a transmitter and receiver. You can use Bluetooth or other wireless device.

I often use a wireless guitar transmitter and receiver with great results. 

How far apart will the two L1® Compacts be? Are there walls or other obstructions between the two locations?  Is there a microwave oven in the vicinity? That can interrupt a Bluetooth connection.
