Connecting L1 with mixer

Scott 3 ·
Hello, Just ordered my L1 Compact and am really looking forward to hooking it up. I have a Behringer Xenyx x1222usb mixer I'll be hooking up to this. Is anyone familiar with hooking up a mixer like this to the L1? I'm not exactly sure which input I would go to, and what type of cable would provide the best connection between the 2. Thanks for the help with this.

Hi Scott, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you are here. Basically, you want to pan all the inputs on your mixer to one side (e.g. Left). Then take the Left output and run that the Compact Channel 2 1/4" connector. Set the ToneMatch switch to Line Level (down). We have notes here: Stereo Mixer to Mono L1® Does that answer your questions? ST

Re: Connecting L1 with mixer

as told by ST in another thread with an Allen & Heath Mixer, you use only 1 main out. The L 1 C will deliver only a mono sum. take a xlr cable to a TS or TRS jack. mono channels like mics panorama to left (using left xlr out). stereo channels balance to left, too (like keys or cd player)

Hi, Merryl, Thank you for joining the Community. This is the USB connector on the back of the T1® (yellow arrow). The RJ45 connector (red X ) is for connecting to a T1® Power Supply or directly to an L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II Power Stand. Connect the USB output to your computer with a standard USB cable like this AmazonBasics USB 2.0 Cable - A-Male to B-Male - 6 Feet (1.8 Meters) with an adapter like this Apple USB-C to USB Adapter Or try a single cable like this one.

how do I connect the tone match to my new MacBook Pro which only has usb-c inputs so that I can record? also where do I connect it from. is it the RG45 output on the back of the tone match? do I need an RG45 cable to connect from tone match to computer? Is that right? thanks!

Hi Kevin, Thank you for joining the Community. This is a great question and thank you for all the background information. That's really helpful. Yes, you can connect your T1® to an external mixer.

Another option I'd look at since the L1s are in front of you, is put the monitors behind you. Either get an L1 Compact as monitor, or the standard style monitor but behind you. Or, put the Compact to your side and you can keep the volume low because it's at ear level, but right next to you. Hope that's helpful, Scott

Thanks so much for the fast swift reply!! Loads of great information and tips to digest! I hope you don't mind me asking one or two follow up questions (please excuse the naivety and simple mindedness of some of them) Firstly, thanks for the suggestion of the TC-Helicon VoiceSolo monitor.

Hi Kevin, You're welcome. And we really like questions here. Most of us here got dragged into this business of running sound. It was certainly not on my list when I started playing the guitar. These kinds of devices are personal monitors. In all the TC-Helicon videos where they feature the TC-Helicon VoiceSolo FX150 they always have one for each performer. Interestingly, TC-Helicon promotes this as a very portable floor monitor too. With the T1® you can create a separate mix to send to a...

Hi Kevin, I looked at the responses in the community forum and agree with them: Yes, it’s possible to connect the T1 to a powered monitor including the Flexsys FM8. Use the T1 AUX out ¼” TRS to the FM8 XLR Balanced input (set the “Input Sens” to “Line”). Please see page 26 of the T1 owner’s guide to learn how to mix guitar vs. vocal out the T1 AUX: http://products.bose.com/pdf/c...tch_audio_engine.pdf Also, it’s worth noting reverb is not available from the T1 AUX monitor mix.

Hi Bassplayerrod, I found a Mackie PPM Series Owners Guide. From what I can see, your mixer is a powered mixer. Warning Do NOT connect the speaker outputs to your L1®s.

Hi Gary326, Thank you for joining the Community. You can connect the Allen & Heath XONE 23C directly to the L1® Model II Power Stands - Analog Input. You don't need a T1®. You can use XLR to 1/4"Tip-Ring-Sleeve cables. Here's a close up of the L1® Model II Analog Input. Start with the trim at about 10:00 o'clock and adjust as necessary so you have a strong signal (green light on the Signal/Clip light). If you see yellow or red, turn down the-the Trim.

Hi Garry326, Congratulations on getting your L1®s Model II systems. The first thing I would try is switching the outputs from the mixer. Does the muffled sound move to the other L1®? If so, then the issue is with the mixer or the cables. If the same L1® sounds muffled, then double check that both L1®s are set at the same level on the Analog Input Trim. If they are, then something odd is happening and it's best to call us so we can help you troubleshoot. Bose® Product & Technical Support...

Hi Kevin, a warm welcome to the community from me too. This has all been covered excellently by ST and he's shown you the possibilities you have for doing what you've described. Using both systems to amplify the same signals seems to be a waste of resources in my opinion. Depending on how large the room is I would have thought that the Classic would cover everything perfectly when being fed by the T1. You don't say what the band is made up of (vocals, instruments etc.) Just bear with me here...

The band is made up of a lead singer, bass, guitar and drums. 3 vocal mics through the Bose, and bass and guitar going through their own rigs. The Compact was purchased for acoustic performances with 2 mics and 1 guitar. The Classic was added when the full band lost their original practice space that had a traditional PA that they would travel with to shows. The hope is that when they play venues with no house PA, we would take this setup with us, which might mean there is a 4th microphone...

Tony, this is great information! Looks like I might have a L1 Compact for sale soon.

I would think twice about selling the Compact, even if the Classic is enough for the Band. Should the Classic suddenly fail the Compact would be a back-up for smaller, quieter locations at a push and due to its size could always be taken to gigs as a reserve in case of mishaps or maybe the need for more extensive monitoring. I have a Model II and a Compact. The Compact I use for smaller gigs, but it gives a certain piece of mind should the Model II fail. In the case of extra monitoring, I...

I hope that the 1st practice went OK and that you all had a lot of fun yesterday.

In this position most microphones display what it called the "proximity effect" an emphasizes the lower frequencies. I'm telling you this for 2 reasons. 1) If a vocalist has the...
