The Beta 87 (condenser) seems too sensitive and causes feedback.

I use Shure Beta 58's, Beta 87, Sennheiser 835's and Sennheiser 935 The Beta 87 (condenser) seems too sensitive and causes feedback.Read More...
Hi Mahesh, the Beta 87A is exceptionally bright and I too at first experience feedback, however - having reduced top end by 1db and mid by 2db I can sing at pretty hot levels without getting feedback. It is a good idea to have the mic label facing you when singing - as the polar pattern is concentrating on you best at that angle. It's rejection field is away from the label. Cheers DaveRead More...

Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

In order to make sure we are delivering new ToneMatch presets that meet your needs we would love to gain additional insight into what instruments and microphones you currently use or plan to use with the L1(tm) system and T1 ToneMatch(tm) audio engine. I'm setting up this discussion as a way to capture this information. Please reply and let us know. I look forward to hearing from you. CraigRead More...

Using the S1 Pro with Bose Connect App

I stumbled upon a YouTube video uploaded by Bose Professional showcasing the S1 and at the end the guy demonstrates using the S1 with the mobile Bose Connect app for mono or stereo Bluetooth streaming. I cannot find my S1s using the app and the S1 isn’t even listed as a supported device within the app. Has anyone seen this and figured it out? Here’s a link to the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/C1NaRpSrxLARead More...
Is it "just me", but doesn't it seem very reasonable to think this Bose Connect App with the S1 Pro COULD provide Volume, Bass, Treble, Reverb, and the Tonematch Switch for each channel? In other words - everything that is on the panel, make it available on the app? And while they're having a good time - Channel & Master Mutes, Master Volume, maybe Line-Out Volume.. .. NOT asking for wireless connect for instrument input, just the same controls that are THERE (plus a few that SHOULD be...Read More...

I, too, have just discovered the joys of BOSE! I do care homes, clubs, hotels and pubs in the UK. I have an L1 Mk1 with 2 x B1s and an S1 Pro, The S1 Pro is my 'go to' system for most gigs and the L1 where more 'oomph' is required. I've been looking at the L1 Mk2 and the L1s to save weight and am seriously considering a T1 Tonematch to get the best out of the kit. I never thought I could afford to go 'Bose' but, in fact , selling my old kit just about covered the cost. I should have done it...Read More...

Phantom power

I have a Neumann kms 105 and my guitarist/backup singer has a Shure Beta 58A. We love your tone matching for the different mics - it’s brilliant! However, for the Neumann, I need phantom power. It looks like, once it’s activated, it’s a global setting? and not just per channel. Can we use the Shure if phantom power is activated? Thanks!Read More...
Hi tmart, The phantom power is only available on the XLR inputs. The phantom power applied to all XLR inputs when you turn it on. Does that create a problem for you? "... phantom power will have no effect on balanced dynamic microphones: no current will flow since there is no voltage difference across the output. In fact, phantom power supplies have current limiting which will prevent damage to a dynamic microphone even if it is shorted or miswired. In general, balanced dynamic microphones...Read More...

BOSE T1 tone match replacement knob

Hello Everyone, I am a very Fan of Bose. I have lost the one of the Volume "tonematch" knob from my T1 mixer. I have called Bose support to buy another however but they say they cannot sell me one which is disappointing. Do you know where i could purchase or if these are available elsewhere? Attached Picture.Read More...

Out with a Y-Cabel

Is it possible to go out of the tone match on a Y-adapter/-cabel and go each of my 2 L1? For me that feels better then using the monitor out... How wrong am I? ...Read More...
Hi Bjoern, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Do NOT to use a cable like this to 'split' the output of a ToneMatch mixer. When splitting a balanced signal coming out of the T1, the unbalanced signals on the tip-sleeve ends are out of phase. What model of L1® do you have? If you have L1 Model 1S or L1 Model II, you can do this. T1® to Two Model II Power Stands or Two T1®s with Two Model 1S Systems If you have a T4S or T8S, there are two master outputs and no need for using a splitter. STRead More...

L1 Model II as a Roland kit stage monitor?

I have a L1 model II with a single B1 and the TonMatch that I have used for small group gigs a couple of times - all acoustic guitars and mics. I have been invited to gig with my Roland V-drums for the first time (totally intimidated now), here is the situation. The band has one mixer channel for me and only 2 floor monitors for all four of us. They do have two powered subwoofers and some nice powered mains. I am concerned that I will not be able to here myself in the back from the floor...Read More...
Is my rig a viable solution for an edrum stage monitor? anyone else use it?Read More...

Tonematch cable, T8S

I have L1 II and please pardon newbie questions but....I'm not clear on the difference between: using tonematch port on T8S as power to (T8S) or connecting tonematch port on T8S to tonematch port on base with the tonematch cable. Help?Read More...
The base of the L1 doesn't provide enough power required for the T8S.Read More...

tap tempo

According to the Instruction manual, the new mixers feature a "built in tap tempo delay". But I cannot seem to find any further mention of it in the manual. Please tell me where the tap function is to be found and how a foot switch can be connected. Thanks.Read More...
It seems to my T4S that you have to tap at over 125BPM to get Tap Tempo to work. You can tap in 1/8 notes to lower tempos, then halve the time.Read More...

T8S mixer - reverb and delay

I have upgraded my mixer to T8s. Have been using T1 ToneMatch for many years. I have been experimenting with t8s but not getting the same sound and warmth that I get with T1. To begin with I have kept all the setting same as T1 on T8s; specifically Delay and Reverb. THat's my starting point and then I started tweaking to get the same sound as T1. My voice sounds very dry and it looses the volume if I a move even little bit away from the microphone which was not the case with T1. Any...Read More...
Hi Shaime, I treat Reverb and Delay as effects. That is, I start with the signal dry and add as little as necessary (if any at all) to get a good sounding result. I find the L1 models can create pleasant side reflections when running at performance volume in a good sized room. There's lots of natural reverb, so I don't usually add more. I place a high priority on clarity and intelligibility. Reverb and Delay diminish both, so I don't use them unless I am trying to recreate a specific sound.Read More...

Connecting l1 model 2 and l1 model 1s

I want i get the same mix from both the l1’s. also how to connect monitor with l1’s? thank you very much for the help in advance some times I may use t1 tone match and sometimes just t8s. Hence asking for two different connectionsRead More...
Hi Shaime, You can use a self-powered (active) loudspeaker for a monitor. Consider using Bose S1 Pro or an L1 Compact. Connect the T8S Aux 1 output to monitor using a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable. You can learn more in this article ToneMatch Aux STRead More...

Daisy Chain F1's

Can someone help me with the setup of connecting (2) F1 arrays on each side. Total of 4 speakers and 4 subs with a mixer in between. I understand how to connect 2 speakers and 2 subs but am not quite sure how to connect the additional set.Read More...
I find this works best for my rig. Mixer OUT to each F1 Sub in then out to your tops blend in desired amount of volume from the sub to match the tops (at a low volume usually between 0 and 1) I then use the other output from first F1 sub to INPUT of second F1 sub and so on and so on for each additional sub.Read More...

Larger Venue Signal Chain Concern

Hi. I just got my L1 Model II, B1 Bass and T8S last week and have been rehearsing with my acoustic-duo mate in my home studio. I'm excited to be free of my old live sound system, and I've been able to find answers to all the question I can think of except one. And I'm afraid this one might bite me if I don't get some expert advice. Q: What's the proper way to set up the trim on the power base, and how does this relate to the master volume setting on the T8S? I've successfully set the channel...Read More...
Yup. I’ll be setting up in the morning for an evening event. Thanks!Read More...
