Bose Professional has added new offerings for its S1 Pro multi-position PA system. The S1 Pro’s accessories now includes the new S1 Pro play-through cover, which is set to be available to the public in May 2019 in multiple colors. Additionally, each S1 Pro comes with a pre-installed rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack and compatibility with the Bose Connect App for streaming Bluetooth audio to as many as two S1 units. Other optional accessories include the S1 Pro Backpack and S1 Slip Cover.
Designed for general PA uses, the S1 Pro is only 15.7 pounds (7.1 kilograms) and with dimensions of 13″ x 9.5″ x 11.2″ (330x241x286 millimeters), but it’s designed to be moved around.
The S1 Pro is engineered to be used in four different positions to accommodate a wide range of applications — tilt-back, elevated, mounted on a speaker stand or placed on its side (as a floor monitor). Built-in sensors detect positional changes and trigger Auto EQ, which automatically recalibrates the system’s internal settings for each different placement/application, ensuring that users always sound their best with optimum sound in any position.
The S1 Pro comes with a three-channel mixer. Reverb and tone controls are featured on two channels with XLR/quarter-inch combo jacks, and a third channel is for either 3.5 millimeter (1/8”) line-in or wireless Bluetooth connectivity. Additionally, a line-out jack offers easy expansion to other systems.
The optional S1 Pro Backpack is designed for hands-free transport of the Bose S1 Pro system. Three zippered compartments allow cables and other items to be safely stored, while the adjustable shoulder straps, molded foam back panel and convenient handles allow users to comfortably carry their S1 Pro system anywhere they travel.
The optional S1 Slip Cover allows users to protect their S1 Pro system and provides a scratch protection while carrying, traveling in a car, placing in an airplane overhead compartment, or when just storing. Made from durable nylon, it features an embroidered front Bose logo and a top opening for accessing the S1 Pro carry handle.
The S1 Pro multi-position PA system is currently available for $599; S1 Pro Backpack is $149 and the S1 Pro Slip Cover is $29 — here are all the specs.
