Re: What weird names have people called your L1?

So far, the only thing someone has said at a gig about my Bose was "oh! You have one of THOSE"!!! This from the manager/engineer of a local recording studio... he was excited to hear one in person.

What I thought of was MY OWN COMMENT the first time I heard my friend, Joe Lucido, playing solo guitar with his backing tracks through a Bose... after he took a break, I said " Man! The backing tracks sound really great? What are you running them through? And WHY DOES THE CLUB HAVE A COATRACK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STAGE???!!!" LOL! I was stunned to find out what the "coatrack" was... and that started my quest for my own Bose L1...

play on........................>

I had a musician comment a few weeks ago on how good the sound was. Two vocals, guitar and tracks thru a M1/B1. He said the Bose thing looked cool and asked if I hid the rest of the speakers under some tables in the room. Ah...Grasshopper...... Wink

"That Thing"

My dad thought it was a basketball hoop.

Power Stand turned into a footrest by some guests when my friend used it to DJ at a party. (but that was nicely taken care of lol).

Re: What weird names have people called your L1?

A local pastor calls mine "The Stick". I like to spell it out by introducing it as "The Bose LI Model II with TI TOnematch & double BI's". Even though it doesn't need all that it keeps em hoppin'. Why don't we just call it Present & Future Sound all rolled up in one package...

I'll occasionally refer to it as the "Festivus" pole (after the Seinfeld episode). Otherwise it's the L1, etc.


I like this, my pole now has a new name.

Re: What weird names have people called your L1?

when people ask "what's that?" my response is usually "a place to hang my hat" and many times, my cap is situated at the top. but I now like FESTIVUS POLE from above.

I stack my B2's with the logo upside down and call it my Bose 3508 system.
