The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Recommend a power supply that they have used successfully with the L1 Compact?

I would like to use my L1 Compact in outdoor venues where 120VAC is not available. I would like to use a "power pack" consisting of a battery and inverter. I know there are a variety of inverter circuits which can produce anything from a square wave to a pretty accurate sine wave. I wondered whether the converter in the L1 Compact cares about the quality of the input AC sine wave, so I posted this question in the Bose section here. The official answer is that only a pure sine wave is recommended. Can anyone recommend a power supply that they have used successfully with the L1 Compact?

Re: Recommend a power supply that they have used successfully with the L1 Compact?

I use one of these to power a L1 Compact + small Line mixer, tested at 2-3 hours, retained around 70% charge. There are more powerful units available and also has option for solar panel.
