Hello Bryant Urban.

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.  Welcome.

The ToneMatch (ethernet) cable works with the L1 Model 1S and L1 Model II systems to provide power to the T4S. The L1 Compact isn't compatible with the ToneMatch cable.

a 1/4 inch Y cable was recommended from tne 1/2 L/R out to the the 1/4 inch input with volume set at midday on the L1. doesnt work.

Do not use a 1/4" Y cable with your L1 Compact. It won't work.

You will need a ToneMatch® Power Supply  to use the T4S with an L1 Compact.



The setup for you T4S and an L1 Compact is the same as it is with a T1.

Connect FROM the T4S Right Output using ¼ inch jack connections.

Connect TO the Compact Channel 2 volume straight up (12:00 o'clock to 1:00 o'clock) for good results. You can turn it up higher, but if you see the light on the Compact flickering red, turn down the volume on the Compact.



¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced)

A balanced connection is preferred and will provide better noise rejection over greater distances than the unbalanced connection.

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Ring-Sleeve

¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (unbalanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)

This should work fine but a balanced connection (immediately above) is preferred especially if you will have cable runs in excess of 20 feet (6 meters) or if you hear line noise, hum or hiss.
