What we say:

At A Glance:

The Bose Sub1 is a Powered Bass Module designed to be used as part of a portable PA system. This compact sub can be used upright or on its side and has been optimised for use with L1 Pro and S1 Pro systems. Sub1 features an innovative Racetrack driver which makes it easier to transport and is host to many technological advancements like SubMatch audio transfer, automatic crossover calibration and Cardoid mode.

Features We Love:

Portable Sound

While most sub speakers are heavy and bulky, the Sub1 is relatively lightweight and portable considering its power. Sub1 can also be used with a Bose speaker pole to support a PA speaker like the Bose S1 Pro.


While using the propriety SubMatch cable with a Bose L1 Pro, the Sub1 can receive power and audio through a single cable and allows for the internal crossover and EQ to automatically calibrate. This ensures the most efficient use of audio is distributed to each speaker for the best possible sound. For PAs where extra bass is required, multiple Sub1's can be stacked to give you a rich punchy sound.

RaceTrack Driver

The key feature behind the Sub1's enhanced portability is its custom RaceTrack driver. Its stretched shape allows for Sub1's slender frame without compromising sound quality.

Cardioid Mode

Another great feature of the Sub1 is the cardioid mode, this directs the sound forward and away from the stage. This is ideal for boxy stages and outdoor events where low-frequency build-up can cause major feedback issues.


  • High quality sound in a compact speaker
  • Easy to transport
  • Connects to L1 Pro systems via a single cable
