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.

Hi there

Can you advise please-I recently purchased a B2, and in short I had to undergo firmware updates to the L1 model 2 power stand for the B2 to work in all 3 positions-a Bose retailer did this for me. He also showed me how to increase the output by setting the Tonematch to DJ playback-'high'. Ever since this, and having tried changing this setting to 'Low' (very little difference) my backing tracks now seem to have too much bass, whether I am using the new B2 or my old B1's x 2. Before taking to the shop, I have only ever used the Tonematch straight from the box, and never had the need use any of the settings on the Tonematch beyond 'reverb'-I am a solo singer working purely with backing tracks. Having had a quick look at Youtube instructions, would I be right in thinking to go back to how my system used to sound before setting to DJ playback I can either override this or go back to Utility / Category-Flat? . Also, presume if I override from the Tonematch Engine setting and then rotate the dial to the 'reverb' setting the override will still be present?. As you can tell I know very little about this piece of kit-thanks for your patience and advice.

Hi Lynn,

Yes, you can change the ToneMatch Preset to undo what the retailer did for you.

On the channel where you have the backing tracks,

  • Press the CH Edit button
  • Turn the Rotary Selector to ToneMatch
  • On the screen you'll see
    Category: DJ/Playback
    Preset: High Volume  Music
  • Turn the Preset knob (under the display, far right) until you see 
    Flat, zEQ Controls

  • Press Select (under the display, far right)
  • This removes the accentuated bass. Or if you like you can turn the Category button until you see: Utility and set the Preset to look like this.

Either setting will defeat the accentuated bass. Then you can make changes to Reverb on your vocal channel and the backing tracks will not be affected.

Does that help?
