Bose L1 Pro8 Portable Line Array System

This 39-pound column PA is ready to gig when you are! With 8 hi-mid drivers, an integrated subwoofer, and a built-in mixer, it's perfect for intimate venues.

As the most portable L1 Pro system, the Bose L1 Pro8 portable PA is ready whenever you are. With the remarkable sound quality of an eight-driver articulated C-shape line array, the L1 Pro8 delivers wide 180-degree horizontal sound coverage, making it an ideal companion for shows in small venues like coffee shops and cafes. The wide horizontal coverage pattern means everyone in the audience hears virtually the same thing, no matter where they're seated.

Get a closer look at the Bose L1 Pro8 in this video from Bose:

Weighing just 18 kilograms (38.9 pounds), the L1 Pro8 was designed for optimal portability, breaking down into a few easy-to-carry pieces, which makes for even quicker load-in and load-out. It ships with a travel bag to carry the line array, meaning you can take the base in one hand, sling the array over your shoulder, and still have a hand free to carry your instrument.

Bass without the bulk

An integrated subwoofer with a unique RaceTrack driver design gives you powerful bass, has an optimized center of gravity, and saves a lot of space. This slim 7" x 13" driver gives you performance that rivals a conventional 12" woofer without the cumbersome size, freeing up room in your vehicle and on the stage, and making every carry in between -- home to car, vehicle to venue -- much easier.

Mixer onboard... and on your phone

Each L1 Pro system features a built-in mixer, so you can connect various instruments, microphones, and other sources easily. You get two read more combo XLR-1/4" phantom-powered inputs, 1/4" and 1/8" (3.5 mm) aux inputs, plus Bluetooth streaming capability. Illuminated rotary encoders give you instant access to volume, tone, and reverb settings per channel. Select between optimized system EQ presets for live music, recorded music, and more. And add in even more instruments and other audio sources via dedicated ToneMatch port -- one cable provides both power and digital audio between the system and a Bose T4S or T8S mixer (optional).

And with the intuitive L1 Mix app, you get complete wireless mixer control from your smartphone too...

Intuitive and instant wireless control

With the L1 Mix app, you can adjust mixer settings instantly from your phone or even walk the room, hear how the mix sounds, and fine-tune as you go. Change volume and tone settings in the app and watch the LED encoder on your L1 Pro move to match - the mixer and app are always in sync, in real time. Plus, you have access to the entire ToneMatch library of custom EQ presets. With the L1 Mix app, you get the connectivity that empowers your performance, giving you greater flexibility for on-the-fly tweaks via controls that are intuitive and instant.

All for that moment

Premium sound onstage. Practical portability everywhere else. With an L1 Pro8, you can get from parking to performing in one trip and from setup to setlist in minutes. The L1 Pro8 gives singer-songwriters and DJs both setup simplicity and supreme clarity - the power to sound your best and simply perform.

This is my second generation Bose L1. It sounds great and is blue tooth. Ready for number 2. Only disappointed bc it doesn't come with a cover for that price.
