New L1 Compact system announced...

Hi Folks,

It is our great pleasure to announce that tomorrow, we will introduce the newest member of the L1 family at Frankfurt MusikMesse (the largest music show in the world).

To learn the details, go tomorrow to Bose.com.

In the meantime, we are sending videos and photos of our preparations to a special page at the L1 Wiki.

There, you can meet some of the people involved in the introduction here in Germany, and get a few hints about the new product.

As things unfold, we look forward to hearing your reactions and answering your questions.

With best regards,

Ken-at-Bose
Craig-at-Bose

Blurry, Bigfoot-sighting-type video here:

At a wild guess...an integrated powerstand/bass module?

Or... that pole looks more rounded than either the Model I or the Model II. Perhaps 360-degree dispersion?



This better not be an April Fool's joke! Smile

Re: New L1 Compact system announced...

I want to see a wide angle shot of the truck. Does it open up like a stage?

It looks like the full range speaker column might be a bit shorter than what we have seen in the past.

Power and bass module together makes sense to me. No more need for a fan, and one less handfull to carry in and out.

Will it power two additional B1s?

Can't wait for the details.

O..

This is something that I (and I'm sure many others) offered up as a suggestion years ago (Classic days, before even the Packlite). Having an integrated package makes a lot of sense.

At the time, however, we'd not seen the Model II. What it provides is fantastic portability...no single piece of the entire system weighs more than 30 pounds.

If this is in fact an integrated powerstand/bass module setup, then it might wind up being relatively heavy. I'm not sure I'd trade that for what the Model II has given us.

Another possibility is that this is an entry-level model with limited expandability/connectivity.

We'll see soon enough!
