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.

L1 model II + Tone match and Boss-300 looper

Hi jm270,

The closest I've come to the Boss RC-300 is an RC-30 a few years ago. 

RC-300 first

  1. Connect your Shure SM58 and acoustic guitar directly to the RC-300 and
  2. Run the output(s) of the RC-300 to the T1®
  3. Set the T1 Preset to Utility/Flat


Advantage: Simple

Disadvantage: You can't use separate Presets for Vocal microphone and guitar.

I can't recall if you can keep the Vocal and Guitar outputs separate on the RC-300. If you can, then I would run them to the T1 use the T1 Presets.

T1® first

If you don't need to loop the vocal and microphone in separate loops in the RC-300,

  1. Use a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Power Supply  to power the T1®
  2. Do not use the ToneMatch cable to connect to the L1® 
  3. Connect your Shure SM58 and acoustic guitar directly to the T1.  
  4. Connect the T1 Master Output to one of the inputs on the RC-300
  5. Connect an XLR to 1/4 inch jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve from the RC-300 to the Model II Analog input

Advantage: You can use separate Presets for Vocal microphone and guitar. 

Disadvantage: More complex to wire up and you need to buy at T1 Power Supply.

Does that give you some ideas?

Hi jm270,

Can you tell us a little more about the gear you have? Do you have a mixer? A Bose T1 or another brand? Are you running guitar and vocal into the Boss and looking for a single output?

Thanx for comming back to me. Ok , i have a L1 model II with B2 and T1 tonematch mixer (with the tonematch cable but no power supply) so my T1 is connected to the tonematch port on model 2.

I have a TC helicon voicelive 2  and Boss RC-300. I would like to use microphone SM58 and acoustic guitar with both pedals so i can have the effects of the voicelive 2 and also being able to loop my voice and other stuff through the microphone like hand claps, tambourine etc... 

So what would be the best set-up?

thanx in advance,

Hi jm270,

I used to have a TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 and a Boss RC-30 but they're gone now, so I can't try any of these suggestions here but I hope this gives you some ideas about things to try.

You might want to get a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Power Supply if want to run the looper between the T1® and the Power Stand. Let's call that Plan B.  More on that below.

From what you said:

Plan A

  1. Connect the microphone and guitar to the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2
  2. Connect the outputs of the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 to the inputs of the Boss RC-300.
    • If possible, you'll want to send separate outputs for voice and guitar if the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 supports that.
  3. Connect the outputs of the Boss RC-300 to the T1®.
    • If possible, you'll want to send separate outputs for voice and guitar if the Boss RC-300 supports that so you can use two separate channels on the T1®
    • If you can get voice and guitar separately out of the Boss RC-300, you can use two channels on the T1® and have separate Presets for voice and guitar.
    • If you can only get one channel out of the Boss RC-300, use T1 Preset
      Category: Utility
      Preset: Flat
  4. If you can do all of the above AND get a dry vocal out of the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 - run that into a separate channel on the T1® so you can add a T1® Preset and effects (if desired) when you want to sing with or without effects over the loops, and talk without effects between songs.
    • If you can't get a dry vocal out of the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2, you may want to set up a second microphone connected directly to the T1® 

Plan B



  1. Connect the microphone and guitar to the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2
  2. Connect the outputs of the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 to the inputs of the T1®
    • If possible, you'll want to send separate outputs for voice and guitar if the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 supports that.
  3. Use a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Power Supply to power the T1®
  4. Connect the Master Output of the T1® to the Boss RC-300.
  5. Connect the Boss RC-300 output to the Model II Power Stand Analog Input.

Does that help?
