Mixer / Allen & Heath ZED-12FX
Allen Heath ZED-12FX
- 1 Summary
- 2 Outputs
Simplest thing that could possibly work.
Use the ¼ inch phone jack (Tip-Sleeve) outputs to
- The PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I Channels 1 or 2 if you want to use the Presets and the R1 Remote Tone and Level Controls
- 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.
- The Model II Analog Input.
- Set the input trim level at "3" and adjust as necessary
- See Model II Analog Input for more details.
- Compact Channel 2
- Set the ToneMatch® switch to Line Level
- Set the Compact Channel 2 Volume so that with the mixer set at maximum volume levels the Compact Signal/OL light does not turn red.
ZED Series Output Section
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)
This should work fine.
¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)
This should work fine.
¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced)
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.
XLR Balanced +4
The nominal output of the XLR Balanced Outputs is too high for the XLR inputs on the PS1 Power Stand Channels 1 and 2. If you want to use balanced cables from the Mixer to Channels 1/2 on the L1 Classic or L1 Model I you may need to use a Pad to lower the signal level from the mixer.
The PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I XLR inputs are designed for microphone level inputs so the +0 dBu output from this mixer is too high for optimal operation - even with the trims levels set to 0. For best results use a Pad to more closely match the output of the Allen Heath mixer with the inputs of the PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I
