Bose S1 Pro - the do-everything portable powered speaker

You need one of these…not kidding!

Every few years, something special crosses our path and I get excited. Since we started into business, we’ve been a part of changing the technology game for you with the very first affordable audio mixers from Mackie Designs, video projectors, early adoption earset microphones from Countryman, digital audio mixers from Behringer, and laser projectors from Panasonic, Eiki and others. Everyone needs all of those things, right?! Well, maybe not everyone.

I’d like to propose that everyone (truly) needs another portable personal powered loudspeaker.

Stop it! I can hear you snickering. And I get it. I chuckled, too, when I heard about the 2018 NAMM announcement for this product.

Does the world really need another smallish powered speaker? Well, this one has Bluetooth. OK, big deal, they all do. It features a 3-channel mixer. It has reverb. Sure there's just one setting, but it’s pretty darned good. It has an accelerometer that makes subtle changes to tone when used in its tilt-back position as a monitor instead of upright or on a speaker stand. Oh wait, that’s cool. Its included battery lasts 6-10 hours, if you don’t have access to an electrical outlet. Not even The Boss plays shows that long! It sounds great and weighs in at just 15 pounds.

You can use this powered speaker as a small sound system for house concerts, worship services, meetings, as a monitor speaker, a practice amp for rehearsal, outdoor special events, coffeehouse shows, easy rehearsal/playback in your choir or band room, setting up for any unexpected event in less than 5 minutes, or on your patio at home when your MP3 player doesn’t quite rock it enough. It has two microphone/line inputs for vocals and/or instruments and an auxiliary audio input for wired or Bluetooth connections.

I don’t know how Bose cooks up this magic, but the S1 Pro has a deep (yet tight) bass response and beautifully articulate vocal quality in a package that defies logic. And the S1 Pro has a perfect feature set with something for everyone to like – music pro, audio technician, educator, public speaker, backyard party-thrower, and pastor.

The Bose S1 Pro is $599. Get one online or by calling 800-747-7301, call to get in line for our demo unit, and if you don’t agree that you’ll find a way to use it, I’ll be very surprised. Everybody needs one.
