This is a great speaker and too loud to turn it up all the way without getting my neighbors alert and the base knocks! I also did it for the sake of my ears as I controlled the volume. I used the L1 for a DJ gig I did for an intimate 50th Birthday Party. It was great sound and it didn't take up much space in the small room and was set up in 30 seconds max. I was able to carry it all in one trip. So it's great for DJs who don't have extra help carrying things and only wants to take one or very few trips to the car for equipment. Sam Ash also called and left a voicemail to see if I had any questions or concerns about the Bose L1 Speakers. I didn't answer the call, I'm sorry I missed it! But I can say no other company (at least not that I know of or remember) I've ordered from through eBay has CALLED to check in on me with the product they sold. I was needing the speaker on a Friday. Every store with the same price said it'll arrive by Friday, and I really wanted to have time to test it out before that day. Sam Ash had estimated delivery set for Thursday, the only one I found with a soonest arrival day. I praise God it actually came on that Wednesday and I ordered on a Sunday. So it took only 3 days for my speaker to arrive! I really love my speaker and I can't say it enough! Thank you!!!! I RECOMMEND SAM ASH TO EVERYONE!
