Notes:


T1 This information is applicable to the T1 ToneMatch® audio engine
L1 Model I This information is applicable to the L1 Model I
Classic This information is applicable to the L1® Classic

The recommended setting for Channel 3 or Channel 4 Level is 3 (see below).

With this setting you will not distort or clip the Model 1 no matter what you do on the T1. You can even use the Model 1 without the remote. More on this later.

For these conditions:

Classic This information is applicable to the L1® Classic
L1 Model I This information is applicable to the L1 Model I

  • T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine going into L1® Model I/L1® Classic into Channel 3/4
  • Balanced OR Unbalanced 1/4" cable
  • Remote unplugged, OR, master volume on Remote at 12 o clock
  • Proper gain staging required on the T1® itself

This will give you the same gain going into the L1® Model I/L1® Classic as if you were going through the ToneMatch® input on a L1 Model II.

If you are using the Remote on your L1® Model I/L1® Classic, then you will need to compensate a bit. If you are running the Remote master volume at max, then stick with 2 on Ch 3/4. When using a T1®, run the master volume of the R1 above 12 o'clock .


This is the power supply for the ToneMatch mixers (T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine and T4S/T8S ToneMatch® Mixers).

The T8S ships with a ToneMatch power supply because the T8S cannot draw power from an L1 Model 1S or L1 Model II Power Stand.

You will need the ToneMatch power supply to power your T1 or T4S mixer when running with an L1 Classic, L1 Model I, L1 Compact, S1 Pro System or non-Bose equipment. You will need a one of these if you have two ToneMatch mixers running into a single L1® Model II or L1® Model 1S. — details below the picture.

ToneMatch power supply



If you connect your T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine or T4S mixer to a L1 Model II or L1 Model 1S then the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine or T4S draws its power through the ToneMatch cable.

If you connect your ToneMatch mixer to an an L1 Classic, L1 Model I, L1 Compact or S1 Pro System or non-Bose equipment then you will need the ToneMatch power supply


If you are attaching two ToneMatch mixers to a single L1® Model II or L1 Model 1S then you will need this power supply to support the second ToneMatch mixer - the one connected to the Power Stand Analog Input.

See: Connecting Two T1®s to a Model II for details.



Connection to L1 Model I / L1 Classic with Remote

If you are using Channel 3 for the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine AND you want to use the PS1 Power Stand Channels 1 or 2 or 4 for other inputs, then you will want to connect the R1 Remote to the PS1 Power Stand.

Excerpt from the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Manual - page 20 - Note: this recommended input setting is now 3. See the note above.

With this setting you will not distort or clip the Model 1 no matter what you do on the T1. You can even use the Model 1 without the remote.

The T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine controls are a heck of a lot faster then the R1 controls. There is no perceivable lag.

Input setting recommendation now 3

MikeZ-at-Bose wrote[1] Bill-at-Bose and I have revisited this.

For these conditions:

Classic This information is applicable to the L1® Classic
L1 Model I This information is applicable to the L1 Model I

  • T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine going into L1® Model I/L1® Classic into Channel 3/4
  • Balanced OR Unbalanced 1/4" cable
  • Remote unplugged, OR, master volume on Remote at 12 o clock
  • Proper gain staging required on the T1® itself

I'm going to revise the original recommendation of 2 for Ch 3/4 to 3 - under the above conditions.

This will give you the same gain going into the L1® Model I/L1® Classic as if you were going through the ToneMatch® input on a L1 Model II.

If you are using the Remote on your L1® Model I/L1® Classic, then you will need to compensate a bit. If you running the Remote master volume at max, then stick with 2 on Ch 3/4. I would recommend against running the master volume below 12 o'clock when using a T1®.


Hopefully this is helpful - please ask away with any questions for clarification.
