Yamaha MX12/4

Summary

Simplest thing that could possibly work.


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

or

You can use the XLR Balanced outputs. But you will probably want to use a Pad for each channel.

Outputs

¼ Inch with suitable output

for PS1 Powerstand Channel 1 or 2 inputs

The ¼ inch Console

should work fine directly into the PS1 Power Stand (Classic) / Model I Channels 1/2/3/4. Note: this output is Tip-Ring-Sleeve (stereo output) so you will need a Tip-Ring-Sleeve to two Tip-Sleeve patch cord to maintain the separation of the left and right channels.

This Mixer also has Four group outputs (busses). Note that the 'sends' are pre-fader.

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.

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.

More Notes

Reading the manual it is not clear (to me) if you can use the internal effects while routing outputs through the groups 1-4.
