Connecting T8S to L1 Model 1S via Tonematch

I have a new T8S, which is connected to an L1 Model 1S via the Tonematch port and cable (from a T1).

 

The instructions say this is not possible, but it works. Please let me know if it can be used this way.

 

Thanks..

Re: Connecting T8S to L1 Model 1S via Tonematch

Hello jamesh,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.

Please do NOT operate the T8S using the ToneMatch port and cable.  Yes, the T8S will light up and pass audio,  but the L1 Power Stand cannot provide enough power to reliably run the T8S. We don't want you to have things go down at a gig. That's why we provide you with a separate power supply for the T8S.

I will run it with the power supply and XLR/TRS, but it's 2x the setup and cartage when it seems to work fine. What will fail?

Hello, jamesh.

We have had reports of people losing audio mid-gig when using the ToneMatch cable that came with the T1.
