L1 Pro8 portable line array system

L1 Pro8



As the most portable L1 Pro system, the L1 Pro8 portable PA is ready whenever you are. With an 8-driver articulated C-shape line array, the L1 Pro8 delivers 180-degree horizontal sound coverage, making it an ideal companion for shows in small venues like coffee shops and cafes. An integrated subwoofer with a RaceTrack driver delivers powerful bass without the bulk; a built-in multi-channel mixer offers EQ, reverb, and phantom power, plus Bluetooth® streaming and access to the full library of ToneMatch presets; and the intuitive Bose Music app, formerly known as the L1 Mix app places wireless control in your hands from your smartphone. It’s an ultra-portable system with a surprising size-to-performance ratio. The L1 Pro8 gives singer-songwriters and DJs both setup simplicity and supreme clarity — the power to sound your best and simply perform.


  • Generous coverage: C-shaped line array featuring 8 articulated 2-inch neodymium drivers; 180-degree horizontal coverage with wide vertical dispersion, allowing your audience to hear clearly whether they are seated or standing, even off to the extreme sides in small to medium venues

  • Deliver premium full-range sound with consistent tonal balance for singer-songwriters, mobile DJs, and more

  • Maintain supreme vocal and instrument clarity with a C-shape extended-frequency line array featuring 8 articulated 2-inch neodymium drivers and wide 180-degree horizontal coverage

  • Bring more bass with less bulk with an integrated subwoofer featuring a 7 × 13-inch high-excursion RaceTrack driver; performance that rivals traditional round drivers with a smaller footprint

  • Go from vehicle to venue in one trip with a modular three-piece system that’s easier to pack, carry, and set up

  • Select between optimized system EQ presets for live music, recorded music, and more

  • Connect various audio sources easily via built-in mixer with two combo XLR-1/4-inch phantom-powered inputs, 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) aux input, plus Bluetooth® streaming — and access system EQ and ToneMatch presets, volume, tone, and reverb via illuminated controls

  • Add in even more instruments and other audio sources via dedicated ToneMatch port; one cable provides both power and digital audio between the system and a Bose T4S or T8S mixer (optional)

  • Take wireless control with the Bose Music app on your smartphone to adjust settings instantly from your phone, roam the room and fine-tune, and access the ToneMatch library of custom EQ presets

  • Stream high-quality Bluetooth® audio from compatible devices
