Now you can have quality Bose sound for almost any gig, event or occasion. The L1 Compact system is small enough to fit in your trunk or back seat, and its innovative modular design makes setup easy and fast. You can arrange it in either a collapsed configuration for smaller spaces or a taller, extended configuration for larger ones. No extra gear to haul. No heavy speakers to hoist onto stands. No speaker cables.
The L1 Compact system's slim loudspeaker distributes sound clearly and evenly throughout the room, thanks to Bose Spatial Dispersion technology
The speaker's unusual vertical shape makes it distinctly different from conventional PA speakers - and has a very positive effect on sound coverage. Even audience and band members off to the extreme sides hear the same sound as those in front
The L1 Compact loudspeaker array is smaller than those in L1 Model I and II systems, but it produces comparable horizontal sound coverage
Spatial Dispersion™ loudspeaker technology features six small drivers mounted at precise angles inside a slim, vertical enclosure. This proprietary Bose technology delivers nearly 180 degrees of horizontal sound coverage
Integrated mixer provides one microphone XLR input on channel 1; channel 2 has one instrument input, one RCA stereo input and one 1/8" stereo input. Both channels have two-stage clip lights, volume controls and a customized ToneMatch preset
Rear panel has one 1/4" balanced line output and one RCA stereo output
Integrated power amplifier in the power stand delivers clean, precise amplification for L1 Compact loudspeaker and bass enclosure
PA and monitors are combined into one lightweight, highly portable system. Bose technology enables the system to be positioned directly behind or to the side of a performer, eliminating the need for separate PA equipment
Proprietary ToneMatch presets optimize the L1 Compact system for a dynamic handheld microphone (channel 1) or acoustic guitar (channel 2)
Two unique setup positions, extended (78.5"H) and collapsed (16.5"H), let you tailor the system's sound coverage for the room or event
For larger audiences, use the included loudspeaker extensions to elevate the array. For smaller gatherings and meetings, leave the array in its slot on the power stand and place the system on a tabletop
Durable, lightweight, interlocking components make the system very easy to transport, set up and break down. The power stand weighs just 25 pounds, and the total system with loudspeaker and extensions weighs 29 pounds
No speaker cables, stands or bass modules required. The entire system can be set up in a minute or less

Great multipurpose speaker
Posted . Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
We plan to use this for karaoke, Bluetooth streaming music, and for our outdoor theater system. Had to buy a Bluetooth receiver separately to use the speaker with Bluetooth devices. So far we are really enjoying this speaker
That's a fantastic question. The system comes with two extensions and the array. The extensions are used to raise the array to the proper height for floor placement of the L1 Compact System in order to optimize sound quality. I hope this helps answer your question! Thanks for asking.
