Anyone using Bose L1 systems or similar systems. Curious about what you use them for and your opinions. Thanks
I've only used them in an acoustic guitar setting in a small restaurant and the local legion, but I have friends who have used them in a band situation - albeit an acoustic-ish band. I've seen two acoustic guitars, bass and 4 vocals, plus unamplified percussion (cajon or small kit). I've also seen set-ups with two systems with half the band in one system and half in the other. Effectively, you are putting the monitor behind you so the audience can hear it too, so you are limited by gain before feedback, but with decent mic placement, you can get good levels for a listening audience in a moderate sized room. I think they actually list recommended audience sizes in the specs.
Chito, it is the entry level L1 system at 1002.00 on sale right now. I think if we decide to buy it i would opt for the L1S as it is more powerful and a lot more speakers. The bass response is exceptional for such a small box.I'm thinking for your acoustic band it would be excellent. If i ever buy it, you can come over and see for yourself buddy.Was it the L1S Single B1, that you tried? That's on sale at L&M right now. From $2085 to $1772.
My buddy had two Passport systems and the Bose really outperforms them. What you can do is rent it for a week and play around with it.That's the compact then. I've heard them used at that restaurant in Kemptville. Right now I'm using a Fender Passport. Maybe it's time to sell it and get the L1S.
