The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

L1Pro 32 to Laptop

Is there a way to play my laptop audio through the L1Pro32? I have several Bose speakers and can connect but I can't figure out how to do this with my new system.

Thank you...

Hello again keri5374,

 

Are you connecting your laptop directly to your Pro32, or did you get a T4s as you mentioned in a previous post?

 

Method 1:  Bluetooth (if your laptop supports it.)  The L1 Pro32 appears as two Bluetooth devices -- .  L1 Pro32, and LE-L1 Pro32.  You pair the first with your music device; while the second (the "LE") is specifically for use with the L1 Mix App. Once you connect, the signal comes in on channel 3.

 

Method 2:  Connect directly to the Pro32, with a 1/8" TRS to 1/8" TRS cable, like this:

Eighth TRS to Eighth TRS.jpg

Connect it from the laptop's headphone jack to the 1/8" jack on channel 3,  Please note, this is an unbalanced signal, so don't use a cable any longer than necessary to keep from picking up hum.

 

Method 3:  You can also use a 1/8" TRS to two 1/4" Y-cable, like this:

Dual Quarter Inch TS to Eighth Inch TRS.jpg

Plug it into two channels for separate control of the left and right signals.  (This solution also works into two channels on the T4s.)  This is also an unbalanced cable.

 

Method 4:  If you did get the T4s, you can connect it to your laptop with a USB-A to USB-B cable, like this:

USB-A to USB-C.jpg

This is the same cable you would use to update your T4s, if necessary, and also provides the best quality signal.  Use the T4s menus to route the "USB from PC" left and right channels to the T4s channel 3 and 4, and use the T4s controls to adjust the sound sent to the Pro32.  (You could also send both the left and right signals to one channel -- either 3 or 4 -- since you're only running a single Pro32.

 

Does that help?

Re: L1Pro 32 to Laptop

Thank you... this does help:) I haven't been able to connect via bluetooth. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'll figure it out. But I do appreciate these detailed instructions!
