T8S with One L1 Model II?
Hello! New to the forum. Hoping to find some answers!
Recently, my bandmate and I purchased an L1 Model 2, B2 and a T4S mixer. It sounds great, but we needed more input capacity, so we have exchanged it and pre-ordered the T8S. However, I just read in the manual that the Ethercon port is NOT compatible with the L1 system/ Mono Ethercon connection like the T4S. Is it possible to use the T8S with a single L1 Model II? Can you just connect one of the XLR outs to the TRS input on the base of the L1? Will there be a drop in audio quality? Are there any other considerations with this method?
For reference - we will be playing acoustic gigs with this system. We work almost every weekend and didn't want to lug around a full PA we normally use in a full band situation. In our acoustic setup, we have two vocals, two acoustics and a single electric guitar which I play through two amps (Wet Dry). I switch between acoustic and electric, so we will only ever be using 5 channels at any given time with no bass or percussion. I also use an In-Ear rig. My hope was to use the T8 for this setup and also leverage the 4 outputs for setting up in-ear monitor mixes. Hoping this will work! The portability of this rig is to die for. (2 15" subs, Mains, Monitors, Amp rigs, Board rig, flight case, etc. etc..... ALL GONE!!!!)
