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.

Very Important Notice
Corrected files for Model II Power Stand Firmware update.

This applies to Model II owners who are using a B2 bass module

Please use this download: Model II Power Stand Firmware version 1.4 providing support for the B2 Bass Module

This addresses the following issue:
When customers complete the update it still shows that they have V1.02 installed. In all actuality the update did take (enabling all B2 positions to work)however the firmware version is not renamed.

Don't use this one
The file on the Bose downloads page (first linked file) contains the error.

Use this one: Model II Power Stand Firmware version 1.4 providing support for the B2 Bass Module

Updated instructions
Important: After step #3 below (firmware update) you need to restart your system to see the firmware version number update on the T1®. I have inserted instructions in the screen shot below.



If you have already installed the updates that report that you are now on version 1.2
Install the new files in the link in this notice.

If you see this error message click Yes

I just talked to the great folks at L1® Support.

Guitar Centre and the Bose Retail stores can help you with the firmware update. I'd call ahead to make sure that they are ready for you, but there is a plan to take care of people in your shoes.

If it's not feasible for you to do that, call L1® Support and see if they can help.

Call Bose® Product & Technical Support at (877) 335-2673 (U.S. and Canada only)
Monday-Friday: 8:30 AM - 9:00 PM ET
Saturday 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET


Please Note
Note - this is something they started rolling out September 27th so I wouldn't expect the message to have reached everyone involved. That's why I suggested calling ahead.

Hi musicnmotion,

In reading documentation for this firmware update and system EQ update, I'm not seeing any benefits for someone who doesn't own a B2. In the same breath let me suggest that you maintain the value (and your future options) by keeping the firmware up to date.

Having applied the update, and hooking up my B1s to that post-update Model II, I am not hearing any difference in the B1 sound.

Short answer: I would apply the firmware update and system EQ update even if I didn't have a B2.

Does that help?

Hi musicnmotion,

I've done the update. I think the B1s still sound like B1s.

Update - Here is a link to the L1® Updater Software for both PC and Mac.


On the L1® Updater for Mac OSX Lion, nothing yet but...

Thanks ST. Ordered my B2 today so your 1.4 fw instructions were really helpful. Will let you all know how it goes at my gig this weekend.


I'm looking forward to hearing about it.
