When using a mixer is some of the quality lost using just the left output?

Hello Daniel Pray, 

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.  

Great question. It sounds like you may have read our article Stereo Mixer to Mono L1®

You should not lose sound quality using just the left output.

Most small stereo mixers allow you to direct the inputs to one side or the other (two sides of the mixer).

  • When you pan an input up the middle, you are using both sides. The two outputs typically go to two powered loudspeakers.
  • When you pan all your inputs hard LEFT and then use the LEFT output, you are using one side of the mixer and in this situation, you are connecting that to a single powered loudspeaker. The quality should be just as good as using both sides of the mixer

The exception: If the mixer has stereo inputs (one channel with two inputs), panning hard to one side means you will lose the other side of the stereo pair.

See Stereo Mixer to Mono L1® and Mixer Left Output Only?? 

If you need more information, please reply with a link to the owners guide for your mixer. 

Thank you,

Re: L1 COMPACT

Can you elaborate a little on the pan left please. When using a Behringer 1202B mixer I'm getting feedback on the mic when the mixer is on "0" and the Bose is half way, straight up noon on the dial. The guitar's sound ok.
