Linking T8s to an analogue mixer

Dolly ·
I’m a travelling tribute artiste and have a number of gigs at holiday parks this summer. Some of these parks have their own FoH and ideally I’d plug the T8s straight in to this. As this is not always possible, is there a way of going out from the T8s in to whichever mixer they are using (usually analogue). I bring my own monitoring and like to at least have control over my own aux out from the stage, even if I can’t do much about the FoH. TIA

How do I connect an LI Model I and an LI Model II, with a T4S mixer? And is it even possible, or a good idea?

DMC ·
I am a solo act, singer and guitarist, and am playing bigger stages now. Please tell me if purchasing an LI Model II is even a good idea, and if I can connect it to my Model I for a bigger sound for more people and bigger stages. And, in addition to buying the new Model II, do I need to purchase anything else, like cords or something? Please answer as best you can with PICTURES. That'd make it much easier to understand! Thanks!

Using an S1 Pro with L1 Mark 1

Ocheye ·
I recently purchased an L1 mark 1 (used) and was so impressed with it that I also bought an S1 Pro. The S1 Pro is amazing but not up to the challenge of some of the venues I play. I have been considering a Tonematch and possibly upgrading to a L1 mark 2. In the meantime would it make sense to use my S1 Pro as a mixer/feeder for the L1, using the reverb and tonematch of the S1 Pro. If so, what would be the cable to use and how would I best set it up? I use backing tracks from a laptop, a...

T4S ToneMatch Mixer update - not working

korynamusic ·
I just got my T4S today and tried to install the T4S update on a Mac Sierra. In the begging my MAC would not want to open the app saying it was not an app from the app store. To fix this I had to go to my privacy settings and I finally managed to open the L1 UPDATE for MAC OSX (v1.3). I downloaded the T4 S Update ( V1.1.4) , placed them in the same folder! My Bose T4S Mixer is version V1.0.1. When I click to Update the T4S mixer I get a pop up saying " The selected file is not compatible.

Gain Staging for T1 to two S1s

DavidE2 ·
Last night I used two S1s for my acoustic duo (one guitar, two vocals). I ran the guitar and vocals into my T1 mixer which was connected to input 1 on an S1 with a TRS 1/4" cable. I then ran another TRS 1/4" cable from the output of the first S1 to the second S1. I set the input volumes of each S1 at noon to control the volume from the mixer. I was surprised that the volume of the first S1 was very quiet while the second in the chain was loud. I swapped the positions of the two S1s to...

Tonematch EQ profiles to use with FOH mixer

rbflapjack ·
Our small portable church (gymnasium) recently purchased 4 L1M2 systems with four T4S mixers to replace the standard FOH PA system. We love the sound but for several reasons, we would like to use our current Presonus board to mix and the Bose as FOH/Monitors behind the band. (See reasons at the end if curious). When we were playing through the T4S, we had no issues with mic feedback. We are now bypassing the T4S entirely (it didn't seem to work to go from the mixer to the T4S to the L1; my...

S1 pro - connection to an external mixer

Jerome Hillier ·
Hi there seriously about purchasing the S1 pro before I dive in though just wanted to be sure of a few basics - as I require extra channels would a QSC touchmix 16 be fine with the S1 / would I simply hook it up through a channel of the S1? Also if I were to use a TS1 how would I hook that up through the S1 Many thanks in advance :-) Jerome

Hi, Jerome. Yes, you can connect a third-party mixer to the S1 Pro channel 1, 2 or both. We have an article with details. S1 Pro Mixer Settings Yes, you can connect the Bose T1 to the S1 Pro. There are a couple of options: T1 Master Output T1 Aux Output For all the details please see this article. T1 to S1 Pro You're welcome. ST

Thanks so much ST for your prompt and informative reply 👍 just a couple of follow up questions & sorry if they are a bit “green” would plugging into both channels of the S1 pro provide more “power?” ( with external mixer) which is preferable on the TS1 - master or aux ? if I were to get two S1 pros would it simply be a matter of going out of each main out into a channel of each S1 for stereo? Finally is stereo possible with the TS1? many thanks again for you stellar service! cheers Jerome

Hi Jerome, Happy to help. No. You won't get more power. If you can get a mono output from your QSC Touchmix, then you only need to connect to one channel on the S1 Pro. I looked at your previous posts. Are you using an L1 Model II? If so, then you can the T1 Master output or the T1 Aux ouput. The choice is up to you based on why you are using the S1 Pro. The T1 Master output is a clone of what you send to the L1. The T1 Aux can be a different mix (e.g. more vocal microphone, less...

Hi Jerome Hillier, Do you recall where you saw that? The T8S was engineered to work with the L1 Model II, L1 Model 1S, L1 Compact, and S1 Pro (and L1 Classic and L1 Model I). Bose engineered all the ToneMatch mixers (T1®, T4S, T8S) to offer the same excellent quality audio whether you use the ToneMatch cable (T1® or T4S) or a balanced cable (T8S) for audio. If you are using good quality balanced cables there should be no difference between using any combination of XLR and 1/4 inch...

Hi thanks again for your reply it was point 9 (refer to photo) that had me worried but I think you have explained it in saying the L 1 model two is not powerful enough to for the TS8- in retrospect I didnt word my question very well so apologies :-) So for the TS 8 to work with the L1 do I need to go out of the Main L & R into the analog input of the L1 model 2 ? also is it at all possible to hook up a T1 with the TS8 if say for example you needed 10 channels ? Thanks heaps ! :-)

Hi DMC, The L1 Model II performs like the L1 Model I except mid-high frequencies are more evenly distributed at the extreme left and right. Using the L1 Model I and L1 Model II on the same stage is not much louder than the L1 Model I alone. However, you can increase your horizontal coverage by the distance between the two L1 systems. For example, if you put the L1 systems 20 feet apart then you will increase the horizontal dispersion by 20 feet. For more coverage, you can put the L1 systems...

Hi Jerome, In your situation, I would get another T1 power supply. You've got two ways to approach connecting the two ToneMatch mixers. Note: The T8S comes with a power supply. T1 Master Output (with power supply) to T8S channel 9 (Aux input) The T8S is connected through the analog connection to the L1 Model II Power Stand T8S Right Output to T1 (connected directly to L1 Model II Power Stand). The T1 does not require a power supply in this case I would use option 1 because this makes it easy...

Hi Jerome Hillier, We now have a new article that shows you how to connect. Please check it out. T1 to T8S to L1 Model II There are two connections for the left and right outputs. You can send a copy of the signal you're sending the to T8S to the QSC K10. Use the Aux output if you want to create a different mix for the QSC K10. All set? ST

Hi DMC, There's only one mixer in the picture; the T4S. You don't need a second mixer. You will connect the T4S to the L1 Model II using the ToneMatch port with the ToneMatch cable that comes with the T4S. That's the green line in the picture above. You're welcome. ST

Thanks ST .....yes almost .....sorry for all the questions (just wanting to do things the optimal way ) Ok whats slightly confusing for me now is the store where I brought the TS8 from recommended I go out of both of the TS8`s XLR main outs into the the aux input of the L1 model two So should I change my configuration and do what you have suggested ? or should I use (also) the main L&R quarter inch to go into the QSC? the best way I will obey :-) many thanks again

Hi Jerome Hillier, Thanks for the picture. Please do NOT use this to connect the T8S outputs to the L1 Model II. This kind of adapter cable set up will do two undesirable things. Short the two outputs from the T8S together Convert the balanced output to unbalanced You need a single connection from the T8S to the L1 Model II Analog Input. 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve Please see this article for more details.

Hi Jerome Hillier, I hope you can return it. Please see my post above. Thanks for this information. It puts everything in context. I'm sorry, the T8S cannot group channels. The S1 Pro is engineered so it will not amplify sounds that could damage the drivers. In this case, it sounds like you have hit the limitation for low-end percussive sounds. If you were to perform with the S1 Pro alone (without the L1 Model II), then it sounds like it won't meet your needs. If you always perform with the...

Re: Third Party Mixer to Two L1 Systems

Hi ST, A couple of comments as I run this setup regularly (Mackie ProFX8). Not all mixer 1/4" main outs are balanced TRS, there are still some unbalanced TS-equipped models out there, especially in the entry level realm. Suggest adding a "check your manual" caveat/note. Still not a deal breaker, though, as you can still run unbalanced 25'-30' with no ill effects other than a possible nominal 6dB loss in level from using TS plugs in a TRS jack, depending on how the L1 varieties handle that.

Re: Wireless Mics

Hi Shyam, Connections for wireless microphones are very similar to using wired microphones. Looking back at your previous posts, I see you have a T1®. That has four channels so you can connect up to four wireless microphone receivers. But you will probably want a least one channel for your backing tracks. So that leaves three. I would find most lavalier microphones are too prone to feedback to use for Karaoke or live performance situations. But handheld microphones are fine when used...
