Please call me ST. Thanks.
Basically I am doing mobile DJ work - laptop driving music to the T8 (or T4) weddings, some corporate events, looking to expand a bit, larger venues - hence the second L1 Model 2 which I intend to use (two L1 Model 2's with 2 b2 bases) with the T8. Can you go through each of the setups for mono or stereo and the benefits of each for me? (didn't know that I had a choice).
The physical connections are the same for mono or stereo. What's different is:
Stereo: use the PAN control on the ToneMatch mixer to send the LEFT and RIGHT inputs to the LEFT and RIGHT L1® systems.
Mono: leave the PAN control on the ToneMatch mixer centered for all the inputs.
Benefits of stereo: that's all in the ear of the listener (you). Some DJs insist on running stereo. Others, don't.
Benefits of mono: you can cover a wider area and know that people are hearing all of the music.
Also, 20' feet apart - parallel to each other.... just wanted some guidance before I run into problems once I start using the two of them.
If you run mono, you'll want a minimum of 20 feet between the L1® systems.
For stereo, you can have them closer if you like but I'd keep them at least 10-15 feet apart if you have the room.
We have an article that speaks to the concepts here:
Stereo / Mono / Distributed systems
