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.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Trying to wire game audio through T1 to PC

I'm trying to run audio from my PS4 to my PC using a T1 mixer. I connected them successfully, but the resulting sounds lacks any bass. I messed around with the gain, tonematch engine, factory reset but I haven't resolved this baseless sound. Any ideas to resolve this, if possible? (Wire path: PS4 -> Digital to Analog converter via optical cable. DtA converter -> T1 via aux channel 4. T1 -> PC via USB)


P.S - I tested the audio with a guitar amp and it sounds perfect, so I doubt it's any of the wires. For some reason when I connect it to the T1, the sound becomes baseless. Thanks for your help :]

Re: Trying to wire game audio through T1 to PC

Hello VershawnW,


I think I know what is happening, but need some specific information:

  • What is the model of Digital to Analog converter you are using?  Does it have both RCA connectors and a 1/8" headphone jack on the analog side?
  • Please describe the cable you are using from the D/A converter to the T1.  What are the connectors on each end?  (I.e., RCA, 1/4" TS, 1/4" TRS, 1/8" TS, 1/8" TRS)  Is it a straight cable or a Y-cable?
  • You say you are connected to "aux channel 4".  Are you connected to only one of the channel 4/5 jacks, or both of them?

I'm guessing (pending your answers to the questions above) that your cable from the D/A converter to the T1 is not the correct cable configuration.  If you are using a 1/8" TRS to 1/4" TRS cable, like this:Quarter Inch TRS to Eighth Inch TRS NO.jpg

it will not work properly with any channel on the T1, but will usually send a decent signal to a guitar amp.  The D/A converter sends a stereo L and R signal. The T1 expects a balanced + and - signal, and would process a stereo signal by cancelling the L against the R, resulting in the bass-less, hollow sound you're experiencing.  A guitar amp usually doesn't expect a TRS plug, and it processes the Tip (leftt side of the stereo signal) and ignores the Ring (right side of the stereo signal), giving you a fuller sound.


If your D/A converter has a 1/8" headphone jack, you can use a 1/8" TRS to two 1/4" TS Y-cable into both of the channel 4/5 jacks, like this.

Or, if your D/A converter has RCA connectors, you can use twin RCA to 1/4" TS cables, like this:Twin RCA to Quarter Inch TS.jpg


If you are using one of these types of cable already, we have to look for another reason.


Looking forward to your reply!
