Re: Connecting Keyboard with One F1 Top & Sub.

Hi EPIC,

Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable Community.

The F1 Model 812 with the F1 Subwoofer is a mono system. You need two of them to get stereo.

  • Take the mono output of the Keyboard (likely a 6mm (1/4 inch)) connection
  • Connect to the F1 Model 812 channel 1
  • Use an XLR to XLR cable from the F1 Model 812 line out to the F1 Subwoofer Line Input


You can connect to the F1 Subwoofer first if you like. Either way is fine.

Here's a variation, but I don't expect it to make a difference.

  • Take the left and right outputs of the Keyboard (likely a 6mm (1/4 inch)) connection
  • Connect to the F1 Model 812 channels 1 and 2
  • Use an XLR to XLR cable from the F1 Model 812 line out to the F1 Subwoofer Line Input


If you need stereo, then another F1 Stack (F1 Model 812 with F1 Subwoofer) is your next step.

Does that help?

This depends on the outputs of your keyboard.

If the outputs are balanced then use 1/4"  Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) cables. Otherwise, you can use unbalanced cables. (1/4" Tip-Sleeve).

There's no harm in using balanced cables if you're not sure.

How's that?
