L1 Model II

Let's talk about the L1® Portable Line Array Systems

Using proprietary Bose® technology, L1 systems combine  PA and monitors into a single, highly portable unit. The  loudspeaker can be positioned behind or to the side —and you hear what the audience hears.

Highly portable PA and monitor combined for solo performers, DJs and general-purpose use. Fixed vertical control with 180° horizontal coverage Reduced vulnerability to feedback.

Three systems to choose from (Compact, Model 1S, Model II)
Two passive bass module options (B1 or B2)
Consistent coverage and tonal balance, portability and easy setup.

Inserting/Removing Tower very difficult

I recently received my replacement L1 Model 2 for the Classic that died on me. Couple questions

1) I find myself having to really push down on the first tower piece in order to get it all the way in? This doesn't  seem to smart from a design perspective. AND, I it is difficult to remove the bottom piece when breaking the unit down. I have my feet on the base "wings" , hands on the side and pulling up (while wiggling) and it is a real struggle...like "chip your tooth" struggle. This is really surprising as the Classic had the push button that "clicked" when inserting, and clicked out when removing...so simple. Am I missing something?  (I am 6'3 200 lbs athlete, for what its worth "strength-wise"....) I cant help but think there is something off with my unit.

2) There is a distinct "fan" noise when I  turn on my unit, which stays on. This is new as well?

 

Thanks,

Seamus

The Cylindrical Radiator® on the L1® Model II rests in the well. There's no locking mechanism. The only thing to check: the legs must be fully extended or else the lock-out post may cause friction. You can see the lock-out post if you look down the well as you open and close the legs.

If the legs are fully extended when you insert and remove the Cylindrical Radiator®, it should not be as hard as you've described.

The fan in the L1® Model II runs at low speed all the time. The L1 Classic and Model I fans worked on a different model (on/off based on demand).
