The new 8 channel ToneMatch mixer

I'm excited about the new 8 channel Tonematch.  I have the 4 channel today that I use with my L11s and I have to use an add-on mixer to bring 3 more channels into my mix.  it's a pain.

My question is, I heard that I can't use the tonematch cable to connect to the L11S or L2 if I only have a single unit.  True?  What other issues are there?

Hi StJoeMike,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. It's great to have you here.

You'll be able to manage everything with the T8S. You've got ten analog inputs to work with. Eight full combo jacks (compared to three with the T1®) and two 1/4 inch (6mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve Aux inputs.

You can pan all your inputs to one side (e.g. Left) and use the Left output to your single L1®.

Here's some more detail.

The outputs on the T8S are analog. The RJ45 port is for the ToneMatch Power Supply that is included with the T8S. The RJ45 port cannot be used to connect to an L1® Model II or L1® Model 1S.

Bose engineered all the ToneMatch mixers (T1®, T4S, T8S) to offer the same excellent quality audio whether you use the ToneMatch cable (T1®, T4S) or a balanced cable for audio (T8S).

There are two balanced 1/4 inch (6mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve outputs (Left and Right). These are convenient for connecting to the L1® Model II or L1 Model 1S Power Stands as well as F1 Model 812s.

There are two balanced XLR outputs (Left and Right). These are convenient for connecting to other powered loudspeakers with XLR inputs.

There's more information about that here:



Does that help?
