This is an application guide for people who use their L1® in a duo format.

Ideal Application: One L1® per Performer

Running one L1® for each performer in a duo format is a wonderful experience for both the performers and the audience. This gives the audience all the benefits of localization, and the best possible monitoring experience for the performers.

Connecting Two T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine to a L1 Model II

The L1 Model II can accept two inputs.

Model II inputs

This makes it easy for two performers to connect their own T1®s to a L1® Model II Power Stand.

ToneMatch® Input

The ToneMatch® connection is specifically designed for a T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine. The ToneMatch® cable is supplied with the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine and uses a male Ethercon connector at both ends.

Analog Input

Model II/Model 1S analog input

The Analog connection is a ¼ inch phone jack. You can use this for a second T1® using the T1® Analog Master output (¼ inch phone jack).

This connection is made with a standard ¼ inch jack instrument cable. This can be Tip-Sleeve or Tip-Ring-Sleeve connectors.

Set Power Stand Analog Input Trim to 3 to have approximately the same level as you would have if you had connected with the ToneMatch® connection. You may have to adjust this, but 3 is a good place to start.

Note: A T1® connected to the the Analog input will require the optional T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine power supply.

Analog Connection from the Second T1® to the Model II Power Stand


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

A balanced connection is preferred and will provide better noise rejection over greater distances than the unbalanced connection.

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Ring-Sleeve

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

This should work fine but a balanced connection (immediately above) is preferred especially if you will have cable runs in excess of 20 feet (6 meters) or if you hear line noise, hum or hiss.
