Formidable sound and very portable
30.04.2015
We play in a duo (fiddle/accordion/keyboards/guitar) and bought this for use at small gigs like small private parties and restaurants. The Bose L1 Compact has exceeded our expectations!

We hesitated before buying this because of the price. We expected the sound to be good and clear but after looking at the specs thought that the base would be a bit unwieldy and that 11.2 kg would be too heavy for me (small female) to pick up at once. We also expected that the no feedback claim would not work for a fiddle played through a mike. We were wrong on all three counts.

Sound - The first thing you notice of course is the sound. It is not just good, it is amazing! You can hear every note and the quality of the sound is a thrill. It makes you want to keep on playing and never stop.

Portability - The 11.2 kg base is so well designed with its well made handle on top, that I can pick it up with ease. All those videos where people amble in carrying the base in one hand, guitar in the other and extensions bag over one shoulder are true. The slip case for the base is another design triumph - you do just literally slip it on and off.

Setup time - is practically nothing. The extensions are quick and easy to slide in. It's plug in and go because the sound is excellent straight away.

Although it is possible to use the system as either collapsed (just the base) or with either one or two extensions to make the speakers higher, we found that we preferred the system with both extensions even in our rehearsal room which is not huge.

Feedback - I don't know how they've done it, but it's true. There is no feedback even when using a violin through a mike (Shure SM94). What a pleasure to play with the speakers behind you and not worry about extra monitors or feedback! This is an enormous plus.

We had originally intended to augment the system with something a bit cheaper for use with our 4 person band, but we have now fallen in love with the Bose sound so we're saving up for another L1 Compact. Apparently 1 L1 Compact should cope with - 50 people who are talking or up to 100 people who are not making much noise, so it's only for larger gigs that more volume will be needed. Although Bose is expensive we think it's worth every penny for such amazing sound with no feedback and such easy portability.

Great sound, quick setup and light
AllTheGoodNamesWereAlreadyTaken, 09.11.2018
Bought for small acoustic gigs. Replaced a pair of speakers, stands and IEMs as its behind me. The sound is quieter in places but spread incredibly evenly throughout venues- which makes odd shaped rooms or background restaurant stuff a dream - when someone sits in front of a speaker then complains its too loud sometimes the extra headroom doesn't get to be used anyway. With this system in comparison to my 10" active full range (but quite uni directional) speakers, volume is more consistent and generally its hard to make this system sound bad! No, or very little feedback from mic even when its been literally right behind me which is the main reason I opted for this higher priced one in case the others didn't live up to their word.
