Bose L1 Pro reviews

There’s more to professional Bose audio than just the speakers.  As a wedding and corporate DJ, I’ve used nearly every version of the portable systems since 2008 – a LOT.  The F1 812 and subs, Model 1, Model 1s, Modell II, L1 Compact, and now the new L1 Pro range.

I may be biased because I use Bose audio professionally, so don’t just take my word for it.

Take a look at reviews from around the world, plus more technical articles in plain English that demonstrate what makes the various systems unique.
