Bought one of these because I loved my L1 compact. This unit underperforms as it is not loud enough in my opinion and I think it's because it is underpowered. The reverb sounds just plain awful, overall the sound lacks bass and the speakers distort when using a vocal harmonizer. Sounds ok with pre recorded music via wifi. Way overpriced as usual with a Bose product. Looks like it's a home electronics piece, not confident it could stand up to road use. Returned the unit for a refund, I was so disappointed, I would not recommend this product to anyone.

If you're a musician or event speaker who needs an all in one solution for any gig then this unit has it all. It's small and powerful. It produces professional sound that is warm and comfortable. Its Bluetooth connection is easy to pair and it stays connected. It has a battery that lasts for eleven hours. This little P.A. is a monster in every sense of the word. Best of all it's inexpensive to rent or own. I'm very impressed with this Bose S1. It's going to travel the world with me.

I have had this great small unit for about 6 months now. I do acoustic guitar with vocals along with a Boss Rhythm Partner plugged in. The portability, size and big sound make it a great option for any type of performing. Love the Blue tooth channel for music from my iPad or iPhone between sets, Can go completely off the grid, anywhere and perform as you like. The battery lasts a LONG time and can handle many hours on the beach or in the woods. Love love love this Bose. If I play in bigger events I simply take the output to my Behringer Europort 2000 portable PA for a huge Kick. Can also use it as a monitor from my Behringer as another great option. Multi purpose and well worth the investment.

This is an unreal PA or just a regular speaker for someone who like loud music. I play a lot of hockey in small towns and a couple days ago there was no sound system in the stadium. I had my S1 Pro with me for playing music in the dressing room. My dad had the idea to take the speaker and play music for all the stadium with the speaker. When I was on the ice or the bench on the other side of the ice I could clearly hear the music and so could everyone else we couldn?t believe what this speaker is capable of. Despite the size of this speaker you can really feel this music in your chest. I also play guitar. The sound of my acoustic guitar through this PA is unreal. Every little accent come through unbelievably. I am more than pleased with this. Definitely pick this up. 100000% worth the price.

I'm a solo singer/guitarist. This year I was given a licence to busk in Mississauga and the Bose S1 was the best thing for me! It's light and requires no power. All I need is my mic and guitar and I'm ready to perform. Setup in 5 minutes! The battery life has been great for me - 2 hours of busking hardly uses up the battery power. On Christmas Eve I was accompanying my Dad in his church and decided to take the S1 (I also own a Bose L1M2). Good choice! On a speaker stand I found the sound to be even better than on the floor. I used two mics (with an ART mic mixer) - Shure Beta 58a and SM58 in ch.1 and my guitar (12 string acoustic) in ch.2. The sound carried clearly to the back of the church. Overall very happy with this amp. (Even considering selling my L1M2 and getting a second S1!)

We currently use a Bose L1 Model II & were hoping that two of these units would produce a similar experience albeit at lower volumes We were disappointed... It is small, portable & has that Bose tone but.. - a bass guitar sounded good at low volumes but was unusable when Bose volume was above 4 due to clipping/distortion - the BeatBuddy drum machine sound was thin. This unit did not reproduce the tone nearly as well as the larger Bose L1 - Acoustic guitar & vocals were very good

I was in Long & McQuade to pick up another item and I decided to check out The Bose S1. I had seen ads online for them and was intrigued. I already have its big brother, The Bose F1 full size system and I have used this at many gigs. Everything from a small band to small singer-songwriter situations. For really small jobs, though, (backyard parties, senior's home performances etc...) I had been using a very popular competitor's amp.. These are nice enough amps. They theoretically put out 120 watts - enough for most uses I'd ever put it to. They have two full channels, many built in effects, and lots of other features, including phantom power and many in and out connections. If anything, a little bit TOO complicated for my needs. How do you really use that feedback thingie? What do you do with the "Phase" control? Or that button that drastically boosts the signal at the left of each channel? I confess - I've never really liked ANY acoustic guitar amp I've heard until now. They always seemed to have very tiny speakers for their professed watts. They always sound good in the store, but get 'em out on a real job and they sound a bit flatulent. My guitar always sounds better through just the PA. So, getting back to the S1 ....First of all...it's tiny! It's a lot smaller than my previous amp, which wasn't big. It weighs less than 15 pounds. When I plugged in to the one at the store I was, to put it mildly - blown away! All that sound out of THAT little thing? I used a Taylor guitar, similar to the one I normally use...and wow! It sounded as good as my big L1 system. No distortion or deterioration when cranked it as loud as I dared in the store. Bose never announce the watts for their products. Like Rolls Royce with their cars. The power is "adequate". It sure is! I'd guess around 60 watts? - but it sounds good right up to the highest settings, unlike my other amp, which, theoretically, is 120 watts. The built-in "Tonematch" controls give you a pre-set EQ which works very well for me. Two settings, one for acoustic-electric guitar, and one for microphone. Basically, it sounds just like the full size Bose systems...with total simplicity. Only two main channels, with only volume, bass, treble and reverb (in addition to the "Tonematch" preset switches.) There is a third handy channel which allows "Bluetooth" connections or anything else you can plug in with a small phone jack. Not even a "master volume". To me that's good - no worrying about how to juggle the various levels. I took it home and gave it a really good workout. I have yet to use it on gig. Vocals are very clear and crisp, as is, of course, the guitar. And, oh yes, it will supposedly run for up to 11 hours on its internal rechargeable battery! So....it will, I'm sure work beautifully as a guitar amp, a small PA or monitor. I know most of these reviews are written by people who, like me, have just bought the item and are still in love with it. I suspect this love affair will last for many years!

Just got it home, messed with eq, volume, reverb, Bluetooth and tone match. Got everything where I like it in a very short time. I?m very picky about my sound and this little bose impressed me right away with its big sound. Lotsa power for small gigs as well. I already have the mid range bose system and large bose system which I?ve had since 2010. This will be a nice addition for smaller venues where I don?t feel to carry in the big stuff. Also great service at the peterborough store. Thanks for your help

I bought one of these a few days ago. I already on a complete Bose F1 PA system (2 X F812 and 2 x F1 Subs), admittedly due to the small size of this I wasn't sure if the S1 would measure up to it's big brother. I haven't tried it in too many applications yet but so far streaming music via Bluetooth sounds great as does my guitar played through my Line 6 Helix into the S1.

I've used it to monitor my keyboards. The band (bass, drums, two guitars and vocals) ran through separate monitors and PA. For a country/rock band that likes to be able to hear vocal harmonies and therefore don't play too loud, I found the S1 on the floor was loud enough for the job. I traded in my 300 watt Traynor K1 for the Bose S1 and I have no regrets. The S1 is not as loud as the K1 but it's 1/4 the weight and the mids are much more useful for me. I found that I rolled off a lot of bottom eq on the S1 to stay clear of the bass player yet i could still hear well defined low notes from my left hand. If I needed more volume I could just put it on a stand to bring it closer to my ears. A good friend of mine does solo piano/vocal gigs and has abandoned his current setup for the S1. Audience satisfaction and the simple setup with built in bluetooth, eq and reverb make it his go to set up for restaurant/lounge piano vocal gigs. Battery power is very useful for outdoor patio/wedding gigs. I initially had concerns about the "processed" or "overly eq'd" sound that is typical of the bose systems. However, I quickly adapted and found it worked much better for me in a band situation than my very heavy yet more powerful keyboard amp. My band mates were VERY impressed when I played back reference tracks of our cover tunes through the bluetooth and completely filled the practice room without having to run the tracks through the PA. It was also nice to avoid hooking up another cable and just run my ipad wireless. Incedentally, I did plug my keyboard into the aux input and it worked! Bluetooth was no longer available and the gain was a little lower but theoretically you could run two mikes and a piano into this thing if you needed to. Finally, my wife bought who bought the S1 for me, uses it for school functions, outdoor events and presentations and no longer needs me to set up heavy/complicated gear for her. This rig is simple and effective.
