L1 Pro This information is applicable to the L1 Pro
L1 Compact

To connect an L1 Pro system to an L1 Compact as a monitor or an extension of the loudspeaker

  1. Use an XLR female to 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve to connect the L1 Pro Line Out to the L1 Compact Channel two (DO NOT USE channel 1 XLR)
  2. Set the ToneMatch switch to Line Level (down position)
  3. Set the volume on the L1 Compact to 10:00 o'clock and then adjust to suit the application. If you see solid red on the L1 Compact turn down the channel volume.

The L1 Pro Line Out is post-fader. That is, it is the combined signal of all inputs and ToneMatch processing, EQ and Reverb. That includes inputs, 1, 2, 3, Bluetooth, and ToneMatch Port (used for T4S/T8S ToneMatch® Mixers). The Line Out sends a signal that matches what you hear from the L1 Pro. As you raise or lower the volume (and make other changes to the sound), this changes the output at the Line Out (except as noted in the next paragraph).

The Line Out is pre-System EQ. That is, the signal at the Line Out is flat. It is not affected by the setting of the System EQ switch. [1]

This applies to any L1 Pro system (L1 Pro8, L1 Pro16, L1 Pro32).

L1 Compact Louder than the First

Because the output level of the L1 Pro Line Out is post-fader (see above) is higher than the original source. If you set the volume control on the L1 Compact to the same settings as the first L1 Pro, the L1 Compact may will be louder. Two get the levels the same,

  1. Turn down the volume on the L1 Compact
  2. Set the level you want on the L1 Pro
  3. Set the volume on the L1 Compact to suit the application. Do that by ear.
