Greetings, I have 2 L1MII connected to a single T4S on L and R ToneMatch digital audio outputs. Channel 4 of T4S is connected to a computer source playing music through both the L1. While playing one L1 connected to right port of T4S digital output has started showing a constant red clipping signal. its not blinking its just lit. I checked the output level through T4S, its around 40%, I interchanged the Left to the right, its still the same, I disconnected everything for that L1 and...

Windows 10 Mono Output

ST ·
If you are connecting your Windows computer to a ToneMatch mixer and you are running mono, you don't need to use two inputs if your source is mono. In previous versions of Windows, it was not easy to convert the headphone output to mono. Now it's easy. Click Start Settings Ease of Access Audio Turn on mono audio Then use a cable like this to connect the computer headphone output to one of the 1/4" (6.3 mm) inputs on your ToneMatch mixer. ST

Best way to record output of keyboards and Mainstage from T8S?

Dr.Mike ·
Hi! I use multiple LI Model II systems for personal use and at a college where I teach. Typically I'm using one keyboard in mono, Mainstage from my Macbook Pro in Stereo (2 quarter inch inputs), and a Microphone. Mic on Channel 1, Mainstage on Channels 2/3 and Keyboard in channel 4. What is the best way for the house PA to receive these channels (or the total mix)--they are running live sound AND recording to Pro Tools. So I'm essentially using the Bose LI and T8S for a monitor (sounds great...

T4S Aux 5/6 and Analog L/R Output

Backstory: My band has eight members. My guitar player (Jan) has an (2) older L1 M1 Bose System with a T1 audio engine daisy chained together. It works great as a stand alone. I have a newer L1 Mll system with a T4S tonematch and I am attempting to put my system into the mix. I have most everything working OK but I am having level issues. This following is how I have it patched together. I am routing the XLR line out of Channel 1 of the L1 M1 base (Jan's system) and patching it into the 1...

I have INPUT but no OUTPUT

Brian High-Seas ·
Hello Everyone-- first-time caller, long time listener :) My S1 PRO failed last night for the first time ever. I know It's receiving input because the channels light up green when I pass a signal through them but no sound output whatsoever. I ran through all the online issue fixes: remove battery reset, firmware update, etc. It's weird because I can't find one example of this happening to anyone else. This is not a connectivity issue, it seems like the problem is an output issue somewhere...

How can I control two separate master outputs on the Tonematch 8?

Our four piece classic rock band is performing for a local variety show. We play a 50 min preshow set and then turn around and become the pit band to accompany the chorus and play walk offs etc. I'm using my TM8 for 3 vocals, guitar, bass, keys, and Roland E-drums (7 inputs). For the preshow we need to hear our vocals without any latency/delay that we get through the auditorium mains. So I ran the left main XLR out to two wedges hooked up in series. By doing that, we were able to produce the...

Re: Wireless Lavelier Mics & S1 Pro | Very Low Output!

ST ·
Hi KC, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Let's check this in a couple of ways. Connect a wired microphone using an XLR cable to the S1 Pro Channel 1. You should be able to get a loud output with the volume control at 3:00 o'clock. You won't get much output below 12:00 o'clock. Looking at the specifications and the owners manual for the UwMic9 receiver it appears that the output is -6 dB lower than a Shure SM58 hand-held microphone. Based on that, I'd expect you would have turn up...

Dear ST, Thank you for your prompt response! I have connected the XLR out of the UWmic 9 receiver to both the inputs of the Bose SE pro. Even on close to full volume, the output is barely sufficient - it's close 15% of what it gives when used as a Bluetooth speaker. I haven't tried the 3.5 output into the Aux Input. Will try & get back. I have used the same XLR out (from the UWmic 9) into a traditional mixer-amplifier & then to a passive/active speaker with very good results. I think...

I've found that I usually cannot get enough level from my dynamic microphones when plugged directly into the Bose S1 Pro (Shure SM58/Sennheiser 835). This tells me that the Pro doesn't provide the amount of input gain that most other systems do. That's another reason I use a mixer for gigging with my S1s (along with usually needing more than 2 input channels). An inline preamplifier designed for lavalier microphone use or inexpensive mixer may help you.

Re: Output from L1 M2 with Tonematch to Sonos Play 5

Hi Jwandass3, From what I can see on the Sonos site the Play:5 does not support Bluetooth so I don't know how this "and also have it on blue tooth throughout their house" is supposed to work. There is a Audio line-in. An auto-detecting 3.5 mm connection. I found an article Using Line In that may be useful. There are too many ways that this can go wrong but this seems the most fool-proof.

Re: Need specs on S1 Pro TRS Output

Sorry, to give that info should have occurred to me. I am planning to connect to consumer line level input (about 1 V nominal), unbalanced, 600 (approx) ohm input impedance. Not knowing anything about that TRS output, I do not know if I need to use a transformer or whether I can just use one side and ground, for example.

Hi PrairieMutt, I've asked for some help on this and hope to have an answer for you soon. In the meantime, I managed to cobble together some bits and pieces here and have successfully connected the following: S1 Pro Line out (one side of the balanced connection) to the RCA input of a consumer device here. I connected a microphone to the S1 Pro, and the sound is coming through fine through the consumer device without excessive noise or distortion. Does that help? ST

Re: Need specs on S1 Pro TRS Output

ST: Thank you, but it is really best to have specifications and make sure you adhere to them. Something that works once may not work in cold weather, low battery conditions, etc. There are standard specifications for many things, and for good reason. There is no reason Bose can't tell us what the specs are on that output; we do not need to know their internal design. Thanks again.

Hi PrairieMutt, Here's the information we have in our Bose Portable PA wiki. Source: S1 Pro Line Out You asked about "Allowable load so that the load does not affect the S1" Are you referring to allowed load impedance? The line output can drive low or high input impedances. It cannot drive a speaker. ST

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.

Our acoustic trio is left-right lead vox, cajon+vox, guitar+vox.

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.

Excellent! Glad to hear it performed better and the XLR splitter worked without issue. Regarding the mixer out, you can either either use the 1/4" or XLR Main outs to the Bose 1/4" inputs. Ideally you would use balanced cables: 1/4" TRS to TRS, or XLR to 1/4" TRS (which I use). You can use unbalanced 1/4" TS cables, i.e. a guitar or keyboard signal cable, but you would lose about 6dB in volume level, and if your cables are longer than 25' you may start to lose some highs.

Hey Doc, Really not that surprising when you think about is, as when you plugged the mic/Helicon into the XLR jacks on the L1c you had the benefit of Bose's ToneMatch that is automatically configured on that input for a vocal mic, whereas the 1/4" line input is not. While the 1/4" input does have a ToneMatch setting, it's designed around a guitar input (I'd be curious to hear how a keyboard sounds with the ToneMatch switch on, as keys and guitar occupy similar frequency ranges).
