Hi Fish, Yes. The T4S/T8S USB output is post-channel-fader (affected by channel volume, but not Master volume control) Yes - confirmed.

Monitors out from L1 Classic

Hi, Playing a gig recently and the singer wanted a monitor to hear himself in the mix. I have 2 L1's and 2 Tonemathes - how could I go out of the system to a monitor? Thanks.Read More...
Hi Rob, Thanks for the interesting question. Since you have L1 Model 1 systems, I have assumed you have T1 ToneMatch audio engines (not T4S or T8S). The easiest way to get a monitor mix of a singer is to use the Aux output from the T1 to which the singer is connected. Please see these notes.

Removing the plastic base of L1 Compact

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to remove the plastic foot (base) of the L1 Compact? I have a tight corner with limited real estate and I figure I don't really need that extra base for stability and want to remove it to save some space. Thank you.Read More...
Hi, Duke. Please do not remove the plastic foot (base) of the L1 Compact. The plastic foot secures the grilles and the connector plate for the speaker array/extensions. The grilles could rattle and you will make the connection to the speaker array exposed and vulnerable to physical damage. Please note; removing the base will void the warranty. STRead More...

What cable to connect mixer to two Bose L1 Model 1's.

I'm planning to go from the Left Main XLR out to the 1/4 input 3 on one of the Bose L1 M1's. And the Right Main XLR to the other Bose L1M1 input 3. The distance of each cable will be about 25'. Would there be a problem using balanced cables? I ask because the 1/4 input 3 is unbalanced? The mixer is a Behringer XAir X18 if that matters.Read More...

Gear/Cables Needed for FB Live

Hi, just looking for some input on how best to set up my gear for a possible FB Live Session. I believe I have all the hardware I need but might be missing some cables. Ideally I would like to have audio sent directly from my T4s/ L1 system directly into an android or iPhone or directly into a Mac Computer via USB out or something.

Hi Fish, Yes. The T4S/T8S USB output is post-channel-fader (affected by channel volume, but not Master volume control) Yes - confirmed. For those reading along, the USB output is post-master-volume on the T1. That is, the USB output is affected by the T1 Master Volume control. Yes - this is one of the improvements compared to the T1.

T8s Master Volume control issue

Hi there. I have the Bose T8s mixer running into an L1 speaker setup. We have experienced intermittent problems with the master volume knob on the T8s. Here's the issue: When the volume is set where we want it, the mixer will unexpectedly get much quieter, seemingly for now reason. Then, when we try to turn the master volume knob, we just get a lot of feedback. Sometimes just turning the know causes the system to feedback, even though it appears nothing is peaking. It has been very...Read More...
Thanks for getting back to me! We just use one L1. We have been running our Mackie into the L1 and everything works fine. It is only when using the T8s that we have this problem. I updated the firmware when we first had this issue, but it's been awhile so I will try another update and see if that helps. Let me know if you come up with anything. Thanks!Read More...

L1M2/T8S Bracket & Cable Included???

I just purchased an L1 Model 2 with B2 and T8S A bracket to mount the T8S to the loudspeaker was not included? Please tell me this bracket exists and should have been included. I would even accept, but not understand at this price point, if it's not included but available for purchase. A Cable (Cat5/6 with Metal Casing) to connect the T8S to the Power Stand was not included? If a Tone Match Cable from the T8S to the Power Stand isn't included can I buy one and use it instead of a TRS? Does...Read More...
Hi, Mumblin Blues. Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Congratulations! You're correct. There is no bracket to mount the T8S to the L1 Cylindrical radiator (the tower). No bracket exists. It would not be feasible given the size and weight of the T8S. The T8S and T4S have a 1/4" mounting hole. Please see this article for ideas.

Chet I have the wood ones too and wondering if that has anything to do with having “good” ones? They’ve worked flawlessly for me thus far. On another tangent about wireless guitar systems like the U2, I found that on my Martin 0000-28 that has a Martin thin line pickup and preamp, the U2 would exhibit a high pitched hum that became more pronounced if I bent the unit towards the guitar, but diminished substantially when I extended it out from the body. I’m assuming that’s because the preamp...Read More...
