A clean professional organized look and sound for your perfect wedding day... or a cluttered look and too loud ear shrilling sound for your wedding day.
You've spent all your valuable time and money to decorate your venue. Then you have your DJ come in with big ugly speakers on a gaudy stand and a cluttered table full of wires, cards, a fan and banners with so much equipment that takes up dance floor space. Your guests arrive at your beautifully decorated chosen venue and are blown away by the background music being so loud that it *vibrates the dishes off the tables* *(as seen on TLC's Four Weddings). What does this mean for you and your guests? Bose...."There Is A Difference" Here are some pictures of our set up at different venues in the Richmond area for ceremonies and receptions.
Not with us!
Also, have you ever been to an event where the DJ is so loud that there is a 10ft. sonic sound barrier between his speakers and the dance floor crowd? Your ears cringe from the hideous highs and mids. That's what happens when you have cheap gear. DJs with conventional speakers tend to turn it up loud to get sound to the back of the room so everyone can hear it. Unfortunately this causes the music to be so loud that it can hurt your guests ears and generally results in complaints about volume levels. At the same time the louder the volume the less clear the sound will be. Most DJs wouldn't fathom spending $2300.00 on three speakers and an amp. Each of our DJs have two of these Bose L1 Model 2 systems. At our events we never get a complaint on sound. As you read about the Bose system below, you will find that the sound from this set up is as pleasant from the ears to the eyes, from the speaker grille to the back of the venue. We don't have to "CRANK UP" the volume at the front of a room to get it to the back. Ask any DJ, it's Murphy's Law that your older guests always sit right in front of the DJ's speakers. With the Bose L1 system, there's no worry of that anymore. They sit there and enjoy the sounds of Bose and hear things in music that they never knew were there before,
and you will too!
You no longer have to worry about choosing many confusing sound packages to accommodate your number of guests. Just one system provides enough sound for up to 400 people, two systems up to 1200 people. Our set up is nice and clean and not cluttered. What every wedding event should be. The ground breaking L1 system brings a new look, a new sound, a new philosophy to audio technology and most importantly, to your event. There isn't a better clear sounding system available for djs on the market today. The first thing you notice is that the Bose L1 system looks like no ordinary speaker....because it isn't. Conventional sound systems consist of two or more boxy speakers that project sound very loudly directly in front of the speakers and then drops off dramatically as you move away from them. Very few DJ companies use the Bose L1 system. It's an expensive and phenomenal sounding system. But the DJs or DJ companies that really care about sound quality, their clients needs and providing the very best will have this system.
Is your DJ using an award winning sound system?
These pictures may take a while to load but it's well worth the wait to see what your venue looks like after we have set up.

What does this mean for you and your guests?
Bose...."There Is A Difference"
Here are some pictures of our set up at different venues in the Richmond area for ceremonies and receptions.
What makes the L1™ portable line array so different?
It begins with the shape. Each L1 system contains a column of many closely spaced drivers mounted in a tall, slim enclosure. This unusual design has profound effects on the sound.
Big bass - small package
B1 bass modules are considerably lighter and smaller than traditional bass bins required for the same performance. The L1 Model I double bass package is designed for DJs and bass/baritone instruments, including electric bass, organ and kick drum.
Consistent sound levels
Because of its shape, the L1 system projects sound waves that expand out and to the sides, but sends very little up and down. Sound spreads more evenly across the stage and into the audience, and the sound level drops off much more slowly than from a conventional speaker.
For example, imagine a conventional speaker and an L1 system placed side by side, set to produce the same sound level at a distance of one meter. At 10 meters away, the conventional source already has 10 times less sound intensity than the L1 system.
Sound levels stay so consistent throughout the venue, there's no need for separate PA speaker systems—and the L1 system provides sound for both stage and audience. You have complete control over your sound, and you no longer have to wonder what your audience is hearing.
Smooth, uniform sound coverage
L1 systems spread the sound at nearly 180 degrees, so tone quality stays smooth and even from side to side. The L1 Model II system takes this uniform coverage even further with proprietary Bose® Articulated Array® speaker technology. Individual drivers in the line array are angled slightly to the sides in an alternating pattern to help deliver our smoothest, most uniform coverage. Even people off to the sides can enjoy crisp, detailed sound.
L1 systems also produce much less reverberation than a typical sound system. Conventional speakers direct a lot of sound energy up towards the ceiling, where it gets reflected back down as reverb. L1 systems confine most of their sound energy in a wide, flat wedge of sound, projecting very little to the upper walls and ceiling. Sound remains clear and detailed, even in the back of the room.
Sound from an L1 system is so consistent throughout the venue, you and your audience can enjoy full, detailed, tonally balanced sound. Whether you're at the front of the stage or the back of the house, in front of the speaker or off to the side.
