T8S & old ToneMatch

I presently have my band hooked up to the T8S using all 8 channels.  I also want to use my T1 tone match for my drummer.  I’ve run a balanced cord to my L1 Model II from the T8S as required.  Can I also run the Cat 5 cord to the L1 Model II from the T1 to send it’s signal and supply power to the unit?  This will mean two inputs going to the L1. Will this work and is it safe to do so? This would eliminate the need for a second power supply to run the T1.

thanks

John F

Great.

Yes.

Absolutely.

Yup!

thanks

The T8S and T1 will operate independently.

We have some  ? ? ? ? ? ? ? for you.

Re: T8S & old ToneMatch

Fantastic and thanks for the quick reply.  I did think of one short coming for me though as I thought it through.  In larger rooms,  I also connect two compacts to the T8S for additional coverage. Unfortunately the sound from the T1 won’t reach these compacts since it wil come from the T8S. Is there a work around?

What T8S output are you sending to the L1 Model II?

What T8S output are you sending to the L1 Compacts?

What I've proposed below won't work if you are using the T8S Aux outputs.

You'll need to buy a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Power Supply  



and then you can do this.

This leaves T8S channels open for your inputs.



You can connect

  • a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve output to the L1 Model II
  • a XLR output to the L1 Compact (and daisy chain to the second)
    • Use an XLR to1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable to connect to L1 Compact channel 2
  • T8S to L1 and L1 compact

You can do things the other-way-around. The idea is to use both the 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve output and the XLR output.

How's that?
