L1 systems lend audio power to artist performances, corporate presentations and more at Timberland company headquarters

Framingham, MA – The New Hampshire headquarters of global lifestyle brand Timberland is host to not only corporate events for several hundred employees, but also the occasional musician who stops by for a visit and special performance. For the best experience, Timberland relies on L1® portable line array systems from Bose® Professional to fulfill its need for convenient and versatile high-quality audio systems for audiences of varying sizes.

The Timberland headquarters houses five Bose L1 systems, including the L1 Model II and L1 Compact. The audio systems are able to handle everything from sound reinforcement for large corporate presentations and investor meetings, to playing recorded music for employee barbecues and community service events. The highly effective Bose systems even provide audio backline for artist appearances on the back patio, where recent sets have featured singer-songwriter Andy Grammer, blues-rock legend George Thorogood and Dispatch/State Radio frontman Chad Urmston (aka Chadwick Stokes).

John Merrill, senior manager of facilities at Timberland, states, “We use our Bose systems on a daily basis, for a range of applications, and they always deliver. Recently, we hosted a large group of business analysts for a full day of events, and we used the systems for both pre-recorded and spoken presentations, as well as background music during the cocktail hour. The L1 systems provide crisp and clear sound, and their versatility means they can accommodate any artist who stops in to perform as well as a host of other applications. Even with daily use, the performance is consistent and reliable.”

Sound duties are split between the L1 Compact system for smaller speaking engagements or live or recorded music at small events, and the L1 Model II system with a B1 bass module and T1 ToneMatch® audio engine, which provides multichannel mixing and proprietary presets for both mics and instruments. The L1 Model II is Timberland’s go-to system for large meetings with mixed audio needs – from microphones for speaking, to live or recorded music.

“We never have an event without Bose products. Since we began our relationship with Bose, they have gone above and beyond to provide personalized service for our organization,” notes Peter Dillon, lead concept developer for VF Corporation (Timberland’s parent company) and organizer of the musical performances at the Timberland headquarters. “The Bose L1 systems provide tremendous peace of mind to everyone involved, including the artists. We can consistently expect high quality sound and the effortless set up allows for convenient use anywhere around campus. The ToneMatch audio engine allows us to save presets for returning artists so we can dial up the best sound again and again. We couldn’t ask for more.”
