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.

My trio (3 vocals to T1 , 2 guitars to amps, & 1 bass to amp) have been using an L1 Compact and an S1 Pro mainly for vocals, with instruments to separate amps. Typical scenario is up to 200 people in quiet indoor space.

We will be playing soon in a band shell with upswept seating for maybe 600.

Will sound projection from the band shell make our L1 Compact/S1 adequate, or should we use a more powerful system?(we have a more powerful conventional P.A. available)

Hi cc407,

Bandshells help sounds that are omnidirectional. The bandshell focuses the sound that would normally go backward and disperse - and sends it forward to the audience. The result is a supportive early reflection that reinforces the sound source.

Your L1 Compact and S1 Pro are already directing sound forward (and very little backward), so the bandshell probably won't help much.

Thanks for the background information.

I would consider doing this with an L1 Model II, but not with an L1 Compact plus S1 Pro.

Take the more powerful PA.
