Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome.
If the converter outputs are two XLR outputs, you should be able to connect each one to a channel on the T8S. The cables could be either
- XLR to XLR
- XLR to 1/4 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve
But you will need two cables. Example:
One cable for the Left channel to the T8S channel 1.
One cable for the Right channel to the T8S channel 2.
If you are using a cable that converts two XLR outputs to a single 1/4 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable - that will probably not work.
Do you have a microphone or instrument you can connect to the T8S? This would help us determine if the T8S and L1 systems are working correctly.
Please see this article about how to connect a T8S to two L1 Model II
