Height issues

I've seen some older threads dealing with the height of the model 2 system but not seen anything very satisfactory and am wondering if anyone has come up with any new solutions and also curious if the L1s tower is compatible with the model 2 base ?

HI MoMan,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.

You can't do anything to change the assembled height of the L1® Model II, but you can adjust the bayonet on the upper section of the Cylindrical Radiator® so you don't need as much height to assemble it.

Adjusting the Length

The Bayonet can be adjusted for easier mounting/dismounting with lower ceilings. Newer L1 Cylindrical Radiator(r) loudspeakers have bayonets with three holes. With the upper L1 on a table or floor, you can easily unscrew the two Phillips-head screws from the Bayonet and reposition the Bayonet so that it does not protrude as much out from the upper L1. This gains you an extra inch of space when mounting/dismounting the upper L1 in places where the ceiling height is less than ideal.

No, the Cylindrical Radiator® sections of the L1® Model II are not interchangeable with the L1® Model 1S.

Where are you performing where there isn't enough room to use the L1® Model II?

Re: Height issues

And here I thought that screw fell out of both of my L1 M2's. I should have known that would never happen with Bose. Silly me! LOL

Re: Height issues

I've already shortened the bayonet.  I play a lot in Northern New England where a lot of the venues are in older buildings built for shorter people i guess.

Re: Height issues

Hi MoMan,

Have you tried using just the lower section of the Cylindrical Radiator®? You would have to raise the system so the sound will disperse properly. 

We have some notes about that here:

Half Stack

Important: Make sure the unit is stable if you raise it off the floor.
