3 1/2 to 4 stars if I could.
First off, I want say, this a great system. I am currently a Bose Compact and Bose L1 Model II w/ 2 B1's owner. So, with that being said, I will say this falls in the middle of the two systems somewhere. Guessing, comparable to the Bose L1 Model S1 with a single B1. So, if you are looking into this particular Bose system, the Fender Expo would be a great alternative at a much lower price point.
It fell short for me, because I was really hoping it would stand up next to my bigger Bose system. The Fender Expo is much more portable and easier to set up, so that is a big bonus. Not to sure of the construction of how the line array mounts onto the sub bottom. Not very stable. In most cases you would think that this should not be a problem, but in my case, others in the bar or club seem to think these line array systems are a pole and always want to lean on them. So I am always on the defense. As long as you are able to keep them at of harms way, it won't be a problem.
My other fuss, is the bags or covers are extra and don't come with the package. Bose systems offer the covers and bags in the deal. For the Fender though, they are not that pricey and I have ordered some up and look forward to getting them.
As I said, set up and break was that much more of a breezes with the Fender Expo. I ran a DJ and karaoke show with it and found my sweet spots with it on adjustments. I use my Bose T1 mixer in front of it. I also have a Allen and Heath Zed10 that I put in front of it at home as well. I found the system to clip out a little sooner than what I expected, but carefully paying attention, I made sure to stay out of the red, to play it safe.

I researched this heavily before buying it and still couldn't find some critical info. I risked it and bought one anyway. So happy bought a second. 2 fully monitors a 6 piece classic rock band.The owners manual lists maximum SPL 121dB. That's plenty loud enough for us with room to spare. Takes up little space. Eliminates the need for monitors. Vocal clarity is great. The sub does a good job for the small size.

Some have said "Why is it not watt rated?" I use it at outside gigs at resorts. Seriously it is more powerful than my Bose L1. I traded because the L1 has 0 base response. This base will blow you away and was needed for intermission Ipad tunes more than my solo acoustic play. A minus is BAGS ARE NOT INCLUDED. Even with purchasing the VERY high quality bags Im still well under the $899 Bose price. I used a decibel meter and just like the Bose you get the same throughout the listening area but a good bit louder than the L1. This was suggested from a friend and I was leery. Don't be. I purchased from Sweetwater as if you are not completely satisfied the will exchange it for you. Trust me, your gonna love it and so will your fans.

This is my initial reaction, I haven't gigged with it yet:
Let me first say that I am a Fender fan, it's why I bought this. I am a guitar player, have a few Strats and also a few Fender amps. I've always been pleased with their amplification. I have been wanting a Bose system for acoustic work but hadn't pulled the plug because of some negative reviews. I would like to A/B the 2 systems but haven't.
I am very pleased with how clear and even the sound is coming from this. To my taste, it's just the right amount of bass, middle and high ends. It's not quite as loud as I would have thought, but like the Bose, the sounds carries over the room with full clarity. I probably need to adjust my expectations, as the array systems are different than the typical PA that I'm used to.
Plugging my iPod into it sounds better than my stereo because the sound is distinct and clear. They did a real good job with the crossover system in this. I've heard a lot of the Bose and Fishman systems and this is every bit as good, maybe a little better... It definitely has more low end than the Fishman.

I tried one of these because many people have been going to the Bose L1 compact in my area, and getting pretty good results for small group performances in modest size venues, and that's my target too. This unit was less expensive than the Bose, even after spending an extra 50 for the covers. (total of 750 against 999 for the Bose) After a few gigs, here are some thoughts.

First, it is bigger and heavier than the bose. The column is one piece, and getting it in the flimsy bag is awkward. Because it has limited control, you need a mixer, but I knew that going in, and it works well with the Alto 1202 that I have.

On the plus side, I got to a/b one with the L1, and the quality of sound is distinctly better. More midrange, really nice highs from the tweeter, and solid bass response. I wouldn't hesitate to play a small gig and run an acoustic bass guitar straight in. Also, because it's heavy, it's pretty stable. So, I'm mostly pleased. Like the Bose, you can run a small band without using monitors, and that's a huge plus. (I do run a small powered speaker to the drummer, though) I think this is a useful speaker and I'm glad I have one.
