Hello Community,

I just purchased the T4S to replace my T1 ToneMatch and was wondering if anyone knew the best hookup and settings for the T4S and my Numark NS7II controller, or any DJ controller for that matter.

 

Thanks.

Congratulations!

and was wondering if anyone knew the best hookup and settings for the T4S and my Numark NS7II controller

  1. Connect the Numark main outputs (XLR left and right) to the T4S two channels (e.g., channels 3 and 4). This leaves channels 1 and 2 open for microphones or other sound sources.
  2. Use the Numark XLR outputs not RCA.
  3. Panning
    1. If you have two powered loudspeakers
      1. Pan T4S channel 3 hard left.
      2. Pan T4S channel 4 hard right.
    2. If you have one powered loudspeaker
      1. Pan T4S channel 3 hard right
      2. Pan T4S channel 4 hard right
  4. Outputs
    1. If you have two powered loudspeakers
      1. Connect the T4S left output to one powered loudspeaker
      2. Connect the T4S right output to the other powered loudspeaker
    2. If you have one powered loudspeaker
      1. Connect the T4S right output to the powered loudspeaker
      2. If your powered loudspeaker is an L1 Model II or Model 1S, use the right ToneMatch port and ToneMatch cable
  5. Experiment with the ToneMatch Presets
  6. Category: DJ/Playback
    Presets: Try all of them in this category

, or any DJ controller for that matter.

The principles above should apply to any DJ mixer that has left and right outputs.

Thanks.

Awesome, thank you very much. I will try those configurations. So this is a different config than the T1 Tonematch.  

The biggest difference for a DJ, is the T4S engineered to support stereo. The T1 is a mono device.

Do you have two powered loudspeakers (e.g., two L1 Model II or F1 Model 812)?

What are the 5/6 input for? 

Bose engineered the T4S ToneMatch mixer to have four full-function channels and two Auxiliary inputs. The Aux inputs 5/6 are routed directly to the Main Output. You can use the Pan and Level adjustments accessible through the PAN/AUX menu. There are no changes to routing, or signal processing available. Only T4S ToneMatch mixer channels one through four can be routed to the Aux Outputs.

I have both. When I play a smaller venue I use the L1 Model 2, and when I do larger venues I do the F1 Subs with the 812s.

 

 

Hi MilesAhead,

Try creating two Scenes to make it simple to switch between using the L1 and the two F1 systems.

  • Mono (when using the L1)
  • Stereo (when using two F1 systems)


The differences in the scenes can have (among other differences) 

  • Pan settings
  • ToneMatch Presets (optional)
  • Master EQ settings (optional)

Thank you so much. I wish Bose would have done a Youtube video with the mobile DJ in mind. All their videos are geared towards the musician with instruments. I’ve used the T1 for years as a mixer and will not do a gig without it. This is a hidden gem that many DJs have yet to discover.
