Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community.
Thank you for the detailed information about the Roland BA-330.
Are you using the Roland BA-330 as a monitor (for the performers) or an extension speaker for the audience? The answer influence how you do things.
Same signal to L1 and Roland BA-330
The T8S has two pairs of main outputs (XLR and 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve).
If you pan all your inputs up the middle then the outputs of each pair of main outputs will be the same.
You can connect one side (e.g., Right) of the main output to the L1 Model II.
You can connect the other side (e.g., Left) to the Roland BA-330.
(green to L1, orange to Roland BA-330)
OR (green to L1, orange to Roland BA-330)
Separate mix for the Roland BA-330
You can create a separate mix using the Aux 1 output and send that to the Roland BA-330. Here is more detail about how you can do that.
Does that help?
thank you so much! We have a gig tonight and were worried! 🙂 We love the bose l1 model 2 so much! What a game changer for us upgrading from the roland to the bose 🙂
I will be using it as an extension speaker
As an extension speaker, you're probably fine using one of the main outputs. You don't need a separate mix (using Aux1).

Give yourself a little time to get everything working.

Oh, one more thing.
Please make sure your T8S is up to date. See
And here is a link to information that goes beyond the T8S Owner's Guide.
Have a great gig.
