Bose pa L1 model 2 pa

Posted by Andrew Martin on November 30, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Recently I had the privilege of trying out this relatively new pa system - and to tell you the truth I'm totally sold on it. Easy to use, lighter and less bulky to carry, and the sound quality is absolutely amazing. You can also vary the amount of gear you use for the size of venue. 1 L1 + 2 bass bins to cover small to medium venues and 2 L1s + 4 bass bins to cover larger medium to large venues. The 500 watt amplifiers are actually built into the base of the "stands" and make for such a neat and easy system to assemble.The system tends to throw the sound all round the room/hall and there is no need for foldback with the spatial sound which seems to wrap itself virtually all the way around the speaker system. With the larger system (2 L1s + 4 bass bins) you get about nearly 1500 watts of power - enough for most venues on the circuit. For you 3,000 and 4,000 watt guys, you might feel that the system is a little under powered, certainly against what you use right now - but you can add to the system (3 L1s, 4 L1s + extra bins etc) and place them around the venue. But while using the Bose, all we had (Liza and I) were compliments after compliments - mainly about the fact the Bose doesn't blast audiences heads off, it just delivers a quality sound all around any hall or venue. The Bose L1 model 2 pa system definitely gets a big thumbs up from Andy at Andys Backing Tracks

I agree with most of Andy's comments and would like to add that I've used the L1 M2 system for around 4 years now and have found it handles everything with consummate ease. By that I mean it has enough umph for a 300 seat wedding venue (ballroom at hotel in Chorley) and my mum's living room! The sound quality is the same for both. It is unmatched IMO. I am solo so use it with one bass bin only and the Tone Match digital mixer on my mic stand. I connect a mic, 2 guitars and audio input into the stereo input channel. Of course output is only mono (as it should be for all performances and discos) otherwise audience at the sides may only hear left or right channels. I don't need a monitor because am able to position just to the side (slightly behind) and hear the output clearly.
It isn't cheap though. A good PA can cost as little as £500 these days and this is 5 times that but as I said, I am serious about the quality of my output and it's therefore worth it!
Happy to provide further comment or feedback should anyone be considering one, or how to get the best out of it even.
Good luck all

I don't have any firsthand experience with HK products, but I've heard decent things about them. It has a unique ability to fill a multi-room space with great sound. Thanks for sharing.
