INTRODUCTION
Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the Bose® L1® model 1S system with ToneMatch® port. Based on a
revolutionary new technology, this system brings the benefits of an intimate acoustic concert
to amplified performance.
This owner’s guide provides detailed setup and operating instructions for your L1 system and
explains how to connect equipment to it.
For additional information on using this system, including tips, techniques, and frequently
asked questions, please visit www.Bose.com/livesound on the Internet.
Features and benefits
• You control the sound – Just as in an unamplified performance, you control the sound.
You will no longer wonder how you sound to your fellow musicians or to your audience
because you will hear what they hear.
• Quick and easy setup – The L1 system is easy to carry and can be set up in minutes, not
hours. This frees you from the time-consuming and often frustrating effort required to properly set up conventional sound equipment.
• Dramatically improved performance – Compared to using conventional equipment,
performance and enjoyment dramatically improve because the struggle to hear yourself
and the other musicians is diminished.
• Creates excitement and emotion – Enhanced performance of the musicians creates the
kind of excitement and emotion that is valued by music lovers.
• You hear what the audience hears – For the first time, musicians hear what their 
audiences hear and thus, are less likely to play at uncomfortable sound levels.
• The music is naturally dynamic – The softest to the most intense passages can be
heard and enjoyed.
• Improves your appearance – There is less equipment on the stage and more room.
• Sound reproduction unlike before – Audience members report that the clarity and
excitement that come from hearing the accurate reproduction of sound from each
instrument, and from hearing the sound of each instrument in its position on stage
(as opposed to mono or even stereo mix of all instruments), is unlike anything they have
heard before in an amplified performance.

SYSTEM SETUP
Positioning your system
Placing the power stand in the right location is an important part of setting up this product.
Determining the best location for your performance depends on several things.
• Size of staging area
• Number of performers
• Shared system (adding a T1 ToneMatch® audio engine and multiple instruments)
The following guidelines should get you started in setting up for a concert or show.
• Set up your system in the rear area of the performance stage.
• If possible, position your system behind the performer(s).
• If you are part of a group, avoid crowding together on stage. Allow some distance, 
ideally 7-8 feet (2.1-2.4 m), between you and the L1® system and another 
performer. This allows the sound to wrap around performers and reflect off adjacent
surfaces of the room, creating a more pleasing room-filling sound.

SYSTEM SETUP
Adding a second B1 bass module (optional)
The bass module output of the power stand can adequately drive one or two B1 bass 
modules. When placed horizontally, the modules are stackable (Figure 7).
CAUTION: Do not connect more than two B1 bass modules to the Bass Module Out 
connector on the power stand. Driving more than two B1 bass modules from this output
improperly loads the amplifier in the power stand, resulting in less than full system performance.
1.
Connect the first B1 to the Bass Module Out connector on the power stand.
2.
Plug one end of the second B1 cable into the unused connector of the first B1. Plug the
other end of the cable into one of the connecetors of the second B1.

OPERATING INFORMATION
Setting the analog input level
When connecting an audio source to the Analog Input, follow these steps to adjust the input
Trim control.
1.
Set the Trim control on the power stand to the 0 (zero) position.
2.
Connect the audio source to the Analog Input.
3.
Adjust the volume of the audio source to the desired level.
4.
While playing the source, increase the Trim level until the Signal/Clip indicator glows
green or yellow.
5.
If the Signal/Clip indicator glows red, decrease the Trim level so that it glows only green
or yellow.
Using a T1 ToneMatch® audio engine and an analog input source
The L1® model 1S system can operate with both a T1 ToneMatch® audio engine and an
analog audio source connected to the power stand. However, keep in mind that the volume
level of the audio engine and the analog audio source is adjusted independently.
• The power stand Trim control only affects the volume level of the analog audio source connected to the Analog Input. Therefore, the Signal/Clip indicator indicates the status only
of the analog input signal.
• The T1 ToneMatch audio engine has a Trim control and signal/clip indicator for each input,
a Volume control for each output channel, and a Master volume control that adjusts the
level of the ToneMatch output sent to the power stand. These controls have no effect on
the signal fed to the Analog Input.
User scenarios
There are many ways to set up and use this system with and without the T1 ToneMatch audio
engine. The following pages show examples of some typical user scenarios. When using the
T1 ToneMatch audio engine, refer to its owner’s guide for more information on setup and
operation.
Single musician
A solo musician might play a single instrument through the L1 model 1S system (Figure 1). 
A solo musician also might play an instrument and use a microphone for vocals (Figure 2 on
page 16).
