Would you buy a pair of L1 M1 classics? What to look for?
I am contemplating buying a couple of L1 system(s). This will be my first commercial Bose purchase.
I do mostly sound support for corporate and special events (weddings, etc...) where a large scale video will be shown, background music, wireless mics, etc...
We have also been asked to start doing a series of outdoor movies with an audience of around 200, hence the upgrade search.
Because I will need a back up system and will likely play stereo (for the outdoor movies), buying (2) identical systems seems to make sense.
(2) L1 Compacts will work with my budget with enough to add a powered sub, but I may be able to do (2) L1 1S systems w/a B1 or B2 as a sale is going on.
(2) L1M2 systems would definitely be out of my budget, however, I have found several used L1 classics with B1 or B2's systems that are in the $700 to $1000 range.
Should I consider a couple of these units? Are there any serial number series that I should avoid or any other items that I should be on the lookout for?
I know that these are no longer supported by Bose.
Any input would be appreciated!
