Bose L1 Pro8 Portable Line Array System
Ideal for singer/songwriters, the Bose L1 Pro8 portable line array system is lightweight, easy to transport, and delivers top-notch Bose audio quality across the stage and throughout the audience. There’s enough power here for a small gig at a café, a record store, or even a backyard party. Even better, the Bose L1 Pro8 sets up in minutes, and you don’t have to be an audio professional to get superlative sound from its onboard 3-channel mixer.

Delivers sound to the audience and sound to the stage
With one trip from the car to the stage, you’ll have your full PA system and monitoring system in one hand — all thanks to Bose’s line array technology. The Bose L1 Pro8 system has eight 2-inch neodymium drivers inside a vertical enclosure — all positioned at precise angles. The result is nearly 180° of even horizontal sound coverage, so the sound remains the same, even at the extreme sides of the audience or the stage. Instead of dialing in a stage monitor while wondering what the mix sounds like from the crowd, you’ll always hear exactly what the audience hears with the Bose L1 Pro8.
Small, lightweight, and easy to set up
Apart from its excellent sound, arguably the best part about the Bose L1 Pro8 system is that it’s easy to carry and set up. You won’t need to call in help just to get the system into the gig, and you won’t have to labor through tons of cable connections and audio-testing steps. Weighing under 40 lbs., the Bose L1 Pro8 is light enough for one musician to carry, and it sets up in minutes flat. You can also choose between two setup positions, depending on the space you’re performing in: a collapsed position for smaller spaces and an extended position to fill larger rooms.
Compact and durable high-excursion Racetrack driver
One element that makes the L1 Pro8 the most portable L1 system yet is its 7-inch by 13-inch Racetrack driver. Often found in small audio systems, Racetrack drivers use an elongated cone shape to match the performance of traditional circular speaker cones in a slimmer format. Bose has enlarged the typical Racetrack driver design to deliver solid, room-filling low end from a slim, travel-friendly footprint.
