Upon its launch, the Bose L1 set a new trend for portable, stylish PA systems that still pack a punch. It’s often been imitated, but never really bettered, which is why it sits high in our list of the best PA speakers available right now. The good news is that Sweetwater has just unveiled some cracking pre-Black Friday music deals deals on the Bose L1, meaning that you can bag yourself one of the most popular PA systems on the market for less.
Now, if you’re unfamiliar with this system, there are multiple components that make up an L1 configuration, from the vertical speaker array, to single and dual-bass driver units, as well as the Bose T4S ToneMatch four-channel mixer.
