Hi everyone, I am a mobile DJ, doing small gigs in pubs and clubs and I have just ordered the L1 Model II & B1 Bass Module. My question, or questions rather, are:-
1) Is one system suitable for this?
a) One system should be great for small to medium sized venues although you may consider adding another B1 module or better still a B2 which will enhance the bass and give you more headroom to your level (volume)
2) If I connect my mixer to the panel with a 2xphono to stereo jack cable, will the sound still be good stereo quality?
a) No, this will not work. The L1 system requires a mono signal source and does not provide stereo output, you would need 2 systems for stereo output (unecessary IMO).
I assume you are using a DJ mixer as you mentioned phono outputs, if the mixer has the ability to run in mono then use a single cable from one channel (L or R) to the power stand (if your DJ mixer has XLR or 1/4" jack outputs use one of these and a balanced lead for the best signal).
If your mixer cannot be set to a mono output and has a Pan control then set the pan all the way to the Left or Right and again connect from the L or R output only to your power stand. (Note: If your music material source is software based you may have the option to set the output signal to Mono within the software interface before it goes through your mixer, for example you can do this within VDJ).
Alternatively you can run your stereo output from your DJ mixer into a standard audio mixer and produce a single mono output from there either by the panning method or the mixers built in ability to produce a mono output. (The Bose T1 does this nicely but any PA mixer will do).
Hope this was helpful, Merry Christmas!
