Using the Bose L1 speaker

As you know, I recently purchased the Bose L1 radiator speaker system to use with my backing tracks and I have to tell you that it is AMAZING! Never before have I heard anything like it – the way it disperses the sound to every part of the room has to be heard to be believed.

I bought the system a couple of weeks ago and have used it at 6 gigs so far and the quality of sound at every gig is breath-taking (and for portability it’s just phenomenal).

I’ll be writing a full review shortly, but in the meantime, if you are a solo singer who uses backing tracks and want a PA system that gives astounding sound quality, punchy performance (and portability so good that you can set it up and break ity down in a few minutes), then you really should check out this fantastic piece of kit.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, it’ll fit in to the trunk of your car no problem. Since buying the Bose system, I’ve now decided to get rid of my Ford Transit van so I’m travelling light to gigs from now on)!

If you regularly play small/medium venues, then this is the speaker system for you. It’s small and compact for carrying from gig to gig – the 7 foot “pole” part of the system breaks in to two parts, each 3.5 feet. The rounded piece you see at the bottom of the picture is where the power amps are (and it doubles as a steady base for the speakers “pole”).

So, just imagine for a few seconds…..you’ve just pulled up outside the venue for tonights gig (in your car, not a large van!) and you’re carrying the Bose system in each hand while you have an iPod (with all your backing tracks) and your microphone in your pocket…

Five minutes after walking in to the venue, you’re set up on stage and ready to sing your first song.

Is it really that easy?

Yip, I did exactly that last night!
