Firmware Prerequisites

You need a computer and a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine to do firmware updates to your L1® Model II or Model 1S. If you don't have both of these, in the US, you can go to a Guitar Center store or a Bose Retail store for help. Please call ahead to make sure that someone in the store is expecting you.

Get the L1® Updater Software

How to tell if your Model II supports the B2 Bass Module

Warning

If your firmware update is not successful - Caution

After you update the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine or L1® Model II firmware, if you see a window on the PC that says the update was not successful, you should:

  1. turn the L1 and T1 off
  2. wait three seconds
  3. then turn the L1 and T1 back on

Do this before trying the update again!

This allows the L1 and T1s to re-establish a good copy of the software.
