Use the XLR - or - ¼ inch phone jack (Tip-Sleeve) outputs to


OR

  • The PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I Channels 3 or 4 if you prefer to leave Channels 1 or 2 open for other inputs. You will have to control Tone and relative Level (between the Channels) at your input source, as you do not have this control over Channels 3 and 4 in the PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I or the R1 Remote.
  • If you want to use the Balanced XLR outputs use the MIC setting in the picture above.


Cables you can use

XLR (balanced) to XLR (balanced)

XLR to XLR, male to female

(balanced to balanced) should be fine. This is the same kind of cable you would use to connect a microphone.

¼ Inch with suitable output

for PS1 Powerstand Channel 1 or 2 inputs

You can use TS (Tip Sleeve) unbalanced cables, or TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve) balanced cables, but since the ¼ inch phone connections at the Bose Classic and Model I Power Stand are unbalanced there is no particular benefit using balanced cables.

¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)

Tip-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve

This should work fine.

¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve

This should work fine.

¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced)

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Ring-Sleeve

This should also work, but likely no better than a simple ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve cable. This is because the ¼ Inch input on the Bose System is Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced) anyway.
