Bose L1 PRO8 Portable Line Array Speaker System with Bluetooth
Dialed in for Pure Performance
The L1 PRO8 portable line array system advances the PA category into a new era of on-the-go audio for singer-songwriters, mobile DJs, and bands. The system offers 180° horizontal coverage, unmatched clarity and tonal balance, plus extended bass response with a unique 13×7″ RaceTrack woofer design. A built-in multichannel mixer offers EQ, reverb, and phantom power, plus Bluetooth streaming and access to the full library of ToneMatch presets.
Bass without the Bulk
The unique RaceTrack woofer integrated into the L1 PRO8 delivers powerful bass, has an optimized center of gravity, and saves a lot of space. This slim design means you get the full impact of a conventional subwoofer 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 + Phone App
The L1 PRO8 system features a built-in mixer, so you can connect various instruments, microphones, and other sources easily. You get two combo XLR-1/4″ phantom-powered inputs, 1/4″ and 3.5mm 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. Add more instruments and other audio sources via a dedicated Tone Match port—one cable provides both power and digital audio between the system and a Bose T4S or T8S mixer (available separately). The L1 Mix app provides channel-level mixer control.
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 PRO8 move to match—the mixer and app are always in sync, in real time. Plus, you have access to the entire Tone Match 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.
Premium Sound with Ease of Setup
The L1 PRO8 offers premium sound on stage and practical portability everywhere else. With an L1 PRO system, you can get from parking to performing with ease and from setup to set list in minutes. It’s the power to sound your best and simply perform
Bose L1 PRO8 Portable Line Array is a 300W powered column PA speaker that’s versatile and simple to use. It functions as a main PA in a wide variety of positions, with a pair able to cover an audience up to 250. The onboard DSP processing, 3-input mixer, and easy-to-use tone presets help working presenters, musicians, instructors, performers, and A/V providers get powerful, clean, and clear sound quickly
The speaker provides 180° horizontal and ±20 vertical coverage for a wide and even response throughout the room. The system offers 112 dB of continuous SPL—plenty of volume for smaller venues including coffee shops, houses of worship, conference centers, performance spaces, and meeting rooms. The highly efficient 300W Class-D amplifier powers the eight 2″ mid-high drivers and the 13×7″ racetrack woofer, providing crisp, detailed sound with a wide frequency range from 20 kHz down to 45 Hz.
Three inputs are on the back. Inputs 1 and 2 feature combo XLR-1/4″ connectors that will accept Mic, Line, and a Hi-Z input for Instruments. Phantom power is available to power condenser microphones or active DI boxes. Inputs 1 and 2 also offer a channel tone match preset button for Mic and Instrument. Additionally, you can select a custom preset from the L1 Mix app. Input 3 features 1/4″ and 3.5mm connectors as well as Bluetooth streaming from a compatible device. All three channels offer mute, volume, bass, and treble controls. Combine two microphones for presentations, or combine a mic, instrument, and backing tracks for singer/songwriter gigs
All three inputs are mixed to a mono signal internally and are passed-thru the Line Out XLR connector for connecting to additional bass modules or other speaker systems. For a true stereo L/R operation, two L1 PRO8 are needed with each to receive independent the left and right signals respectively
