Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

 
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.

I assume this will also power the T1 yes?

Re: Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

 

 

Is there a beta group of users familiar with both the old or current L1 series and this new version that can answer comparative questions?

 

They seem to touch all the bases that have been requested over time, and I believe Ken when he says the new models are better, but I would still be interested in real world comparisons.

Re: Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

I think these look very cool.  I would love to see a real world demonstration video from Bose with these from one person to full bands.   I love the seemingly even quicker setup times.  

A few questions:

Looking at the specs listed, since it's not spelled out, are the wattage ratings peak or RMS?  

Also please show stability of the Pro32, as in if someone bumps it from a side, will it topple?

Lastly, is there some sort of cover/carry bag included with the Pro32?  The one I see at Sweetwater seems to be separately sold, adding $200 to the cost.  If so, sorry, it should be included. 

Thanks!

Re: Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

Musicians Friend shows bags for arrays and powerstand and slip cover for the sub are included.

 

Sweetwater shows a pic with bags included.

 

The items that are priced separately are optional accessories, being padded or having wheels.

Re: Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

I currently use one L1 Model 2 with 2 B2 bass modules to DJ weddings up to 150-200 people. I use the original l1 compact as a satellite to fill out areas where I need more coverage. I typically run the model 2 at half volume and it is perfect.  I also have a little s1 pro that I add when needed. 

 

Now on my question... will the L1 pro16 handle a typical wedding venue for 150-200 people?  I mainly need solid music at the dance floor and it is actually nice if the volume drops off after that so people can talk and visit.  How does the L1 pro16 compare to the L1 model2?  Assuming I get the Pro16, can I run them both if needed without compromising sound quality?

 

Would I be better served just getting an F1 sub with 812 top?  So many options. 

 

 

thanks for your insights.

Re: Introducing the new L1 Pro Family!

Does this replace the current L1 Model 1S and Model 2?  Or will those products continue as well?
