Bose L1 Pro16 New Zealand

  • Comparing to legacy L1 systems?  Similar to original L1 Model 1s or L1 Model II
  • Ultra-portable, lightweight, and the powerful, clear sound you'd expect from Bose Professional.
  • Easier to transport than the original L1 systems as the subwoofer is built into the power stand base.

The Bose L1 Pro16 is so powerful, yet incredibly easy to transport and set up.  The built-in 3 channel mixer means that a small band, solo musicians, DJs, even wedding ceremony venues can plug in and run everything they need without the need for an external mixer.

It is so compact it can be carted around in two parts, and sets up in 60 seconds.  Grab the official Pro16 Rollerbag and you can pull two complete systems into your venue in one trip so easily!

But of course, the incredibly wide one-of-a-kind dispersion from the Pro16 means you'll rarely need more than one.  Set up your L1 Pro16 in a corner or at the short wall end of a long venue and fill most rooms with just "one stick".

You can connect via Bluetooth as well, or add the Sub1, Sub2, or pairs of either in cardioid mode for even more bass in the place.

Pro16 FAQ

L1 Pro range

  • Does the Bose L1 have a subwoofer?

    YES!  The Bose L1 Pro range has a subwoofer.  Depending on which model, the subwoofer is either built into the power stand, or a separate active sub (the Sub1 or Sub2).

    Take a look at the differences and what the unique subwoofer design looks like.  Read more here.

     

     

  • Is the Bose L1 mono or stereo?

    Even though each L1 has multiple little speakers inside, technically the L1 Pro is a single speaker system.  This means is can only ever be a mono speaker.

    But – what if you’re sending a stereo signal to it, or if you’re running two speakers?

    There’s quite a bit to this topic.  Read the simple breakdown explanation here.

     

  • How many watts is the Bose L1 Pro16?

    How many watts is the Bose L1 Pro16?

    Simple answer: 1250 watts.

    But there’s more to it, of course.  Watts is only a measurement, a number that doesn’t really tell you what you need to know.

    Read the full article here about how loud the L1 Pro16 is and how big of a crowd it can be used for.

  • How many watts is the Bose Sub1?

    How many watts is the Bose Sub1?

    The simple answer is 480 watts. But that doesn’t really tell you anything important, like how LOUD is it?  Will it be loud enough for you to be used for specific venues or music or events?

    Take a look at a more in depth answer based on decibels and how that is important.

  • How do I connect my T1 Tonematch to an L1 Pro?

    You’ll need two cables to The original T1 Tonematch mixer will need two cables – an audio cable, and an ethernet cable (or Tonematch power supply).

    The L1 Pro8, Pro16, or Pro32 can power the T1 Tonematch mixer via the ethernet cable. However, unlike the L1 Model II or L1s, there is no audio transferred via this ethernet connection.

    1. Power up your T1 via the Tonematch power supply, or an ethernet cable connected to the L1 Pro Tonematch port
    2. Run a 6.3mm TRS (stereo) cable from the T1 master out, into Ch3 on the L1 Pro.

    Alternatively, the Pro8, Pro16 and Pro32 each have line outputs, so you can connect that directly to the F1 subwoofer input.
