What customers say about "Key Specs"
Turbosound iNSPIRE iP2000 Powered Modular Column Loudspeaker
  • After trying out one unit at practice I was impressed by the way we could hear every frequency and how intelligible the vocals were.
  • This is a tremendous bargain for a 1,000W Powered system. Very clear and warm sounding speakers that fill a medium size room that seats 200 people with ease.
  • As a solo performer the Turbosound 2000 model has enough power to handle just about any setting I come up against.
  • I am really happy with the Inspire iP2000. The sound is very full and the bass is lively.
  • Great clarity but needs more mid range.
Bose L1 Model 1S Single B2 Bass Portable Line Array System
  • When the L1 came out (with the round base) I used it for several years as my PA system. Then I scaled down and got the L1 Compact, good enough for my Lounge gigs and much lighter to carry around.
  • Sure I was skeptical because I love my Meyers speakers but for the corporate events I produce the L1 is a great product.
  • UNBELIEVABLE sound that splits your hair. The L1 replaced a much larger complex system for my DJ and small room band/acoustic gigs. I couldn't believe how much headroom there was.
  • The sound is full and clear. The small foot print helps in some of the smaller venues. We set it up behind us and it works great as both PA and monitor. Very pleased!
  • I am trying to determine which one of these to purchase and Bows looks good however I am always skeptical when they don't publish the power in Watts with the specifications.

What customers say about "Features"
Turbosound iNSPIRE iP2000 Powered Modular Column Loudspeaker
  • Two of these ip2000s combined with an Allen & Heath Qu-16 is proving to be a great sounding system. It is very interesting how it doesn't feedback easily. I play upright bass and it's never sounded better to me.
  • Bluetooth streaming from my phone is to die for. Awesome feature.
  • 2 inputs seemed limiting so I bought a little mixer with it, works great for when there are more than 2 inputs needed.
  • This unit sounds great when my daughter plays piano through it.
  • . In reality, the sound was muddy, with very little note separation -- especially on the playback via bluetooth.
Bose L1 Model 1S Single B2 Bass Portable Line Array System
  • Of course it is still critical to balance your console gain and mic output gain but that is common with all speaker systems. Get the bass unit even if your only doing talking head gigs.
  • I also like the fact the Bose L1S is very easy to set up or tear down and I don’t have to lift heavy speakers on to poles.
  • For uses requiring 4 channels or less, the Tonematch mixer is a must addition. I set up in 5 minutes. FIVE minutes and I'm rockin. Best MF purchase yet!
  • The mid-level system has a lot of positives...most importantly the ease of set up for the amount of sound it produces and I'm happy with my purchase overall.
  • You need a mixer or some sort of eq to tone down the base and shape the sound depending on what instrument is input. Hence I use a small 8 channel mixer and separate eg on the guitars. This works pretty good.
