Plugging in Yorkville Mixer to L1 (Manual attached)

Hi everyone, thank you for all your help in advance!

I have a Bose L1 Compact system and I am looking to add a few more inputs and currently have a Yorkville M1610 portable mixer (powered). 

I have read the Yorkville manual and it looks like I can use the MON Out Jack and plug that into a line level input on the Bose L1 system. Is this correct?

I am aware that it is not wise to use the powered speaker outputs A and B on the back of the Yorkville Mixer, that is why I am checking with the sound wiz's here. 

The manual can be found here: http://yorkville.com/downloads...610.pdf?v=1365088218

This is where I believe I can connect the mixer to the L1 system with:

"8. MON Out Jack

The monitor bus output signal from the Mon OUT jack is line level and would normally be patched to the input of a mono power amplifier (or a single channel of a stereo amp) driving stage monitor speakers. Keep in mind that in the Left/Right position of the Amp Assign switch there is no internal equalization for the monitor mix (you might want to patch a graphic equalizer between the Mon OUTjack and the input of your monitor power amplifier, this can help regulate the feed). As men- tioned under #5. Pre-EQ OUT, Post-EQ OUT section (above), the monitor mix signal can also be patched to one channel of the internal amplifier using the Amp Assign switch."

Thank you again!

Hello, Reid.

Thank you for joining our Portable PA Community. Welcome.

I appreciate the time you invested to provide us with documentation for your mixer.

Based on the information you gave,

I have a Bose L1 Compact system and I am looking to add a few more inputs and currently have a Yorkville M1610 portable mixer (powered). 

I have read the Yorkville manual and it looks like I can use the MON Out Jack and plug that into a line level input on the Bose L1 system. Is this correct?

You should be able to connect the MON Out Jack to L1 Compact Channel 2. Set the ToneMatch Switch to Line Level (the down position).

For best results use a 1/4" (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable to maintain a balanced connection from the MON output of the mixer to the L1 Compact.

Here is an excerpt from page 20 of the Owners Manual for the Yorkville M1610 mixer.

Do you have any follow-up questions?
