Can S1 Pro power Sub 1 w/ match cable?

Can the Pro S1 power the Sub 1 base module with use of a sub match cable? The owners guide mentions connecting the sub module to an L1 Pro32 for power but not the S1. : / Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hello smonop,

 

Sort answer:  No.  The Submatch cable only works with the L1 Pro 32 to provide electrical power and signal via a single cable to the Sub1 or Sub2.  The S1 Pro does not have a Submatch jack.

 

When connecting a Sub1 or Sub2 to an S1 Pro, you must provide separate power to the Sub, and then decide whether you will:

  1. Send your signal from the S1 Pro's line out to the Sub1.  If you are using Bluetooth, this is the method you would use.  The downside is that the S1 Pro will be processing a full-range signal along with the Sub1's low frequency signal.
  2. Send your signal from the Sub1's line out to the S1 Pro.  If you use the Sub's "S1 Pro line out EQ" mode (by holding the Sub1's (by holding the Line Out EQ button for four seconds) then the Sub1 will only process frequencies below 150Hz, and send only frequencies above 150Hz to the S1 Pro (which will be much less taxing on the S1 Pro.)  The downside is the Sub1 doesn't have a Bluetooth receiver, so you have to use a cabled source, such as a mixer.

Does that help?
