L1s and compact with t8s and monitors?

Charlie ·
I have a job this weekend where I would like to use my L1s and compact as the “mains” on either side of the stage, but I may have to use a qsc and/or my s1 pro wedge as well (for the drummer and the lead singer). I just got the t8s, but I’m not entirely sure how to connect all this properly. My assumption is to use 1/4in trs cables from the outs on the t8s into the L1s and channel 2 on the compact. Would I run the wedges into the main outs on the t8s?

L1 Model II as a Roland kit stage monitor?

psap ·
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...

Headphone to feed Bluetooth bluetooth

TURNERSTUDIO ·
Is there too much latency issue with using "Headphone Out" to bluetooth transmitter and some wireless IEM's? It seems this would be an obvious benefit for those that want to use this type of monitoring system, especially when the L1 Model 2 is out in front of the performer due to necessary physicality arrangement of the venue and you cannot hear yourself well at all. I am currently trying this. Has Bose not not considered this. It is right down their engineering demographic and I think they...

L1 Model 1 paired with JBL Eon for monitor?

AlysiaSBelisle ·
Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to using my L1 + bass modeul (got as an very nice Xmas gift) I was thinking about using my old JBL Eon speaker as a monitor when playing big rooms. Is this possible? How would I go about that? I also am using a Tonematch T4S (ps. I LOVE the sound I'm getting!) I am a solo acoustic musician so i'm only plugging in my Washburn and Shure Beta Mic. Thanks in advance!

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. Thanks, ...

Hi Michael, Wow! What’s your goal? For live performance or for recording? Which instruments? It might best if you call L1 Support at 877-335-2673 for this question. The Analog Input on the power stand is available for general purpose line-level input (like a keyboard) in addition to the ToneMatch inputs. The Bass – Line Out is optional if you add a Bose PackLite amp with more subs. Honestly, this is unlikely. The ToneMatch hasn’t seen new preset development in a very long time. I recommend a...

Hi Dan, Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable PA Community. I'm glad you're here. Thanks for all the background information in your post. Let me jump right to this. The Aux out does not send reverb. You can read about that in this note: T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Aux Output --∈∞ΘΞ Please click the picture for more details ΞΘ∞∋-- So you'll want to do this. Does that help? ST

Thank you so much for the fast response. Later in the evening after I posted I did find that section you linked to regarding no Aux out reverb. My concern is twofold: 1- I’d be unable to hear the mix in the bar and wouldn’t be able to fine tune individual T1 channel levels. I could via the monitor mix on stage...It would just be dry with no effects (perhaps the price to pay) 2- the Aux running into the bar would be dry and I would guess ‘sterile’ or lacking any of the ambiance that reverb...

Hi BrianA, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome, and congratulations on getting your T8S. First, you can do both things you mentioned with Aux, but before we go into that, have you updated your firmware? Your T8S probably shipped with version 1.0.1 The latest is version 1.1.0 Please see this page for instructions on how to update the firmware. T8S Firmware Updates I'll be back to talk about Aux shortly. ST

Thanks ST for the detailed reply. First, I did update the firmware to v1.1.0 and perform a factory reset before submitting my question. Second, I'm still seeing the problem after following your instructions carefully. What I'm seeing, for example, is that immediately after configuring Chan1 and Chan2, (per your instructions above), when I go back and press the CH EDIT for Chan1, the display shows Chan1 is no longer configured for AuxOut1, it is configured for AuxOut2. On the T8S display, it...

Re: Using S1 Pro as a stage monitor

Hi Simon Patrick, You want to keep the number of different loudspeakers your audience will hear to a minimum. So - aim the S1 Pro (as a monitor) facing you (not the audience). Aim the L1 Compact at the audience. When you connect a T1 to an L1 Compact or an S1 Pro system, use a balanced cable (Tip-Ring-Sleeve). A balanced cable will give you a better signal to noise ratio and higher resistance to electromagnetic noise. If you connect an S1 Pro to an L1 Compact (or the other way around), use a...

I always find these Bose Wiki’s very helpful. Here’s the one on the L1 Compact that covers a lot of interesting topics and it gets updated periodically as new things are identified. Well worth taking a look at. There’s also a link there to the manual which is handy if you are like me and forget where the heck I put the darn printed version.

Re: Using S1 Pro as a stage monitor

Hi W. P. Anthony, If the monitor has a balanced input, connect the L1 Compact Line Out to the monitor using a balanced cable; 1/4 inch (6 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve. Balanced inputs are always mono. The S1 Pro has balanced inputs on channels 1 and 2. If the monitor is designed to accept a stereo signal, then yes, you will have a problem with a balanced cable; 1/4 inch (6 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve. Most powered monitors with 1/4 (6 mm) inputs I have seen are mono. They not designed to accept a stereo...

If I am running a T1 (acoustic guitar and mic) into an L1 Compact and the LINE OUT on the base of the L1 Compact to an S1 Pro (as a monitor), will all of the effects that the T1 is sending to the L1 Compact be reflected in the S1 Pro as a monitor as well? Including reverb?

Re: L1 Compact Output to Wireless/Bluetooth Ear Monitors

I would use a small mixer and feed everything into that and send an out from that to each Compact rather than daisy chain. You then have an Aux out on your mixer to feed whichever channels you want into your monitor, being in ear of floor monitor

A music store suggested a bluetooth transmitter and earbuds for monitoring? Do their employees actually gig? We've tested it out and even with APTX bluetooth, you still get an unacceptable delay for monitoring live sound. Bluetooth is good for backing tracks. Good wireless In-Ear Monitors will cost you more than an S1 Pro. Cheaper would be get a small mixer and plug some wired in-ears into them. We mainly DJ but we also do a lot of sound reinforcement for conferences, schools, and occasional...

Our acoustic trio is left-right lead vox, cajon+vox, guitar+vox. We run a small Mackie ProFX mixer into two L1 Compacts (Mackie Left/Right XLR outputs to Left & Right L1 Compacts via Balanced 1/4" inputs, ToneMatch off). A couple of notes: The L1 Compact has near 180 degree coverage and are actually designed to be *behind* the performer, maybe off to the side a hair, so in your setup your mic may be to close to the sides of the L1's and causing the feedback. We've always had our L1's...

One other question - to Avoid Daisy Chain of the 2 L1 Compacts.

Hi J, see my bulleted responses below: "Update: continued my research concluded the following re: Mixer" the L1 Compact already has a preamp when using the XLR Mic Input with Treble and Bass Gain Yes, this is true, but it's an overall EQ, nothing you can really use to dial out offending feedback frequencies.
