    has anybody checked this out? it looks freaking amazing! (click musicians, im not posting the exact url, its way too long)

    "The Double Bass package represents a new approach to the challenge of amplifying live music. Portable and easy to setup, this package is for bass guitar, drums, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, DJs, wind and string instruments. A pair of B1 Bass Modules brings the strong impact bass to the full, natural sound of the L1 Cylindrical Radiator™ loudspeaker.

    A new approach

    For nearly 10 years Bose researched the benefits and limitations of conventional amplification. The result of this study is a new approach that dramatically reduces performance frustrations we learned existed for both musicians and audience members.

    The most striking thing about this system is what’s missing. There’s no monitor, no conventional amplifier, PA system, mixing console or pile of cables. The sound is natural. The musician controls the music. And there is a new, stronger connection between artist and audience.

    The cylindrical radiator™ loudspeaker

    Conventional amplification systems are often limited by the characteristics of conventional loudspeakers. Sound levels traditionally fall off at a rapid rate moving away from the speakers and uneven sound dispersion gives rise to loud spots and dead zones.

    The L1 Cylindrical Radiator loudspeaker takes a completely different approach. Its unique pole-shaped design delivers a wide dispersion pattern, with nearly 180 degrees of sound coverage. You can hear everyone in the band—and exactly what the audience hears. Lyrics remain crisp and clear, connecting the crowd to each note from the music. And musicians remain in control of the sound, allowing for new levels of collaboration and performance.

    Power stand and remote control

    The PS1 Power Stand is the mechanical support for the system and housing for all the electronics and controls. Its access panel has four inputs for hooking up your vocals and three different instruments. Share the system with a bandmate or connect multiple guitars for quick switches during a show. Two of the channels have presets that adjust the performance of the L1 Cylindrical Radiator™ loudspeaker for use with a variety of popular instruments and vocal microphones. And the compact R1 Remote Control gives you the freedom to move around without being tied down to a set of controls. Simply attach it to your mic stand or anywhere else and make quick sound adjustments without missing a beat.

    A new kind of performance

    With the new Bose approach your load-in time can be dramatically reduced. Setup requires just three easy steps: 1. Place the bottom half of the loudspeaker into the Power Stand. 2. Connect the top half of the loudspeaker to the bottom half. 3. Plug the power amp into a power source. That’s it, you’re done.

    Sound check is a breeze because you don’t have to make dozens of connections between monitors, mixers and speakers. Just plug in, tune up your instrument and you’re ready to play. You’re in control over your sound, not dependent on someone listening from the back of the audience.

    The impact of bass

    The Double Bass package features two B1 Bass Modules to deliver the low frequency impact you want and need for bass guitar, acoustic bass, drums, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, DJs, wind and string instruments. Each module works seamlessly with the PS1 Power Stand, allowing for quick setup. They’re also light and compact.

    Get started

    The Double Bass package is a new way to perform and connect with your music. Today we’re inviting you to see one of the special live performances we’ve arranged around the country. You’ll hear great live music and see how other musicians are using the system. Or you can take advantage of a special risk-free 90-day trial offer. Try the system at a few shows, take it on the road. We think you’ll like what you hear."

    This just sounds like spam.

    Oh, and Ive tried it out with electric, acoustic, and bass guitars and was really dissapointed in the sound of it with a bass.

    I heard one last sunday and was inpressed how it sounded. only vocals and keys were coming through it though.
    A real space saver. The group who had it was learning how to use it (it didn't belong to them but a local school).

    sorry if it sounds like spam, i just forgot to search for it

  5. Sold 2 of those to a church.

    Big deal. Yeah, the same sound from all angles is cool, but it simply can't get loud enough for my tastes.

    The great feed-back rejection is cool, though.

    Way to expensive. For the same amount ($4000) I could get an excelent setup with all Mackie equipment that gets louder and sounds just as good. My 2 copper coins.

    Rock on
