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.


I have an L1 model 1 and an S1 Pro. I have just ordered a new Tonematch T1 and am seeking advice on the best way to set this up.

I currently use XLR cables into my mixer direct from the VLP GTX. I would welcome comments from anyone who uses this system

Hi Ocheye,

Connect the VLP GTX  to the T1 using the same cables you used for connecting it to your mixer.

Connect the T1 Master Output to the L1 Model I channel 1.

Connect the T1 Aux Output to the S1 Pro channel 1.

That's the overview.

Details below.

Connect the T1 Master Output to the L1 Model I channel 1.

Connect the T1 Aux Output to the S1 Pro channel 1.

That should get you going.

Hi Andy,

That's brilliant ST. The only further questions may be regarding the settings to choose for each of the channels on the T1 but that is probably dependent on the settings of the VLP GTX and will require some experimentation


Yes, you've got some experimentation ahead of you.

Another couple of questions:

Output cable from T1 master to channel 3 on L1 - TRS or TS?

The 1/4" (6.3mm) inputs on the L1 Model I are unbalanced, so use a Tip-Sleeve cable. You can use a Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable, but it won't add any benefit.

Ditto for output from Aux to S1 Pro

The Aux Out and S1 Pro 1/4" (6.3mm) input are both balanced connections. Use a Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable for best results.

I assume that if I only use the S1 Pro that I use the T1 master output
