Using 10-channel mixer with L1

My day-job employer just gifted me with a Bose L1 Model II system w/ T1 as a bonus for a great 2017.  I have been performing professionally for over 40 years and this is probably the nicest piece of music equipment I've ever owned, certainly the most expensive. 

I presently play in a 5-piece combo so I plan to interface my 10-channel mixer with the L1.  Are there any tips, tricks, or glitches of which I should be aware?  Thanks!

Where do you work? Are they hiring? (okay - just kidding)

I agree, from personal experience; this is a nice great piece of music equipment

I'd encourage you to try your L1 with the T1 without the ten channel mixer unless you need all those channels.

For solo gigs, I would connect directly to the T1 and leave the ten channel mixer out of the picture.

You can run the left and right outputs of the 10-channel mixer into your T1 Channel 4/5.  That's the simplest thing as far as physical connections. If you don't have 1/4 inch outputs on the mixer, then you can use T1 Channel 1, 2, or 3. Although I like to leave those open for microphones.

Please tell us more about your music so I can give you some more ideas that will be appropriate for you.

Thanks,

ST

Thanks ST!  My combo consists of me on lead acoustic guitar, a keyboard player, a bassist, and a percussionist playing both a cajon and congas, plus we have a female lead singer.  There are four vocals total, so I need a total of 8 channels for every gig (the bassist just uses his amp).  We play some folk songs, blues, reggae, and jam-band type songs; nothing too loud.  I'll try that idea of sending the passive outputs from my powered PA head into ch 4/5.  I'll be interested to see if the preamp out on that head carries the onboard effects, and how those sound through the L1.  www.reverbnation.com/stargazer28
