The Bose L1 PRO32 Portable Line Array is a 480W 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 350. 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 straight-shaped line array provides 180° horizontal and 0 angled vertical coverage for a wide and even response throughout the room. Depending on the subwoofer used, the system will offer 123 dB (Sub1) or 128 dB (Sub2) of peak SPL—plenty of volume for mid- to larger-sized venues including clubs, festivals, houses of worship, conference centers, performance spaces, and special events. The highly efficient 480W Class-D amplifier powers the thirty-two 2" mid-high drivers and when coupled with the subwoofer, will provide crisp, detailed sound with a wide frequency range.
Three inputs are on the power stand. 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 PRO32 are needed with each to receive independent the left and right signals respectively.
Bose's L1 Mix app allows you to adjust mixer setting instantly from your phone from the stage or while walking around the room. Hear how your mixes sound and fine-tune as you go. The LED encoders on the the sub/mixer module are bidirectional and will update in real-time whether using the onboard controls or the app. The app also provides access to the entire ToneMatch library of custom EQ presets.
The L1 PRO Series Sub1 Portable Bass Module is a high-output active subwoofer well suited for mobile entertainment, AV rental, event production, clubs, and performance venues. The 13x7" RaceTrack direct radiating driver is powered by a 480W Class-D amplifier, which delivers high sound pressure levels with dynamic and musical sound reproduction of very-low frequencies.
The Sub1 connects to the L1 PRO32 line array via SubMatch cable and works seamlessly with the L1 Mix app. The subwoofer can also be paired with a Bose S1 Pro system to create a micro-PA. An M20 threaded input on the side of the sub allows you to deploy a speaker pole for any speaker up to 34 lb. Two subs can be used together for a cardioid mode, which lowers the stage volume and decreases feedback issues. The Sub1 ships with a slip cover and a power cord.
