Bose L1 Pro Series Demo - PG Gear Spotlight

The latest iteration of the company's portable line-array systems pack in a wealth of new features including an app that tailors the EQ specifically to your guitar.



Bose L1 Pro Portable Line Array Systems
Dialed in for pure performance, L1 Pro portable line array systems advance a PA category invented by Bose into a new era of on-the-go audio for singer-songwriters, mobile DJs, and bands. Three models offer legendary 180-degree horizontal coverage, unmatched clarity and tonal balance, plus extended bass response with a unique RaceTrack woofer design:

The most portable L1 Pro system — L1 Pro8

A balance of power and portability — L1 Pro16

And the most advanced L1 ever — L1 Pro32

Built-in multi-channel mixers offer EQ, reverb, and phantom power, plus Bluetooth® streaming and access to the full library of ToneMatch presets. And the intuitive L1 Mix app places wireless control in your hands, giving you the flexibility to roam the room and fine-tune and the freedom to instantly adjust your mix anytime.
Premium sound on stage. Practical portability everywhere else. With an L1 Pro, you can get from parking to performing with ease and from setup to setlist in minutes. It's the power to sound your best and simply perform.


Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.

Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
