Hi Gonzo,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community.

There's lots of ways to connect things and it could be as simple as connecting the mixer to the L1 Compact, taking the line out to the first S1 Pro, and taking the line out from that to the second S1 Pro. All the connections should be balanced. 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve.

If you want to get into more detail:

Please give us a link to the owners manual for your mixer.

Are you using two S1 Pro systems now and adding the L1 Compact or something different.

Why are you connecting these three powered loudspeakers together? Are you using the L1 Compact as the main PA and the S1 Pro systems as monitors, or do you have something else in mind?

Please tell us more about your music:

  • What kind(s) of music you play?
  • Where you do it (size, type of venue)?
  • Who is there (audience) - how many?
  • What are they doing while you are performing?
  • Do you have a website? If no website,  please post a picture of your ensemble.

 
Thank you.

Hi Gonzo,

From the Behringer Xenyx 1202FX manual; all the 1/4 inch (6.3mm) outputs are unbalanced. You can use ordinary 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cables.

If you are NOT using any of the stereo inputs and you have all your inputs panned in the middle you can do this.

Are you using any of the stereo inputs or the RCA Inputs? If so, what are you connecting to them?

Hi Gonzo,

I might use the Rca imputs to connect my MP3 if not I can always use the L/R inputs.

thank you....!!

We have to approach this differently to ensure the L1 Compact is getting both sides of the stereo (left and right) signal.

I've given you three options below. The first two are fine if the distances to the S1 Pro systems and L1 Compact are less than 20 feet. Choose the first or the second depending on your choice of cable (RCA or 1/4 x 2 to 1/8) and where you want to control the sound for the L1 Compact.

Note: You'll have to control the volume of the L1 Compact - on the L1 Compact. You won't have control over that from the mixer. You might prefer this if the L1 Compact is in a different room than the S1 Pro systems.

OR

Use a conversion cable like this.

OR

Daisy Chain from L1 to S1 Pro to S1 Pro

Use this method if the S1 Pro systems and L1 Compact are going to be more than 20 feet from the mixer.

If you want to get both Left and Right sides of the stereo signal to both S1 Pro systems and the L1 Compact, we have to approach this differently (and you won't be able to use the RCA inputs - use the L/R inputs instead like this).

We're switching everything to mono so you will hear both the left and right channels from all three Bose loudspeakers. 

The 1/4 inch (6.3mm) outputs on this mixer are unbalanced mono.

Use a cable like this:

1/4 inch (6.35 mm) Tip-Sleeve

Connect the Left Output of the mixer to the L1 Compact Channel 2.

Connect the L1 Compact LINE OUT 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve) to the first S1 Pro with a cable like this 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve
