ToneMatch Mixer to F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker XLR

Connecting the T4S/T8S via Analog Connection

  1. Make sure the device you are connecting to and the T4S/T8S are powered off and the T4S/T8S Master volume control is set to minimum.
  2. Using XLR balanced cables, connect one or two devices to the XLR Stereo Outputs of your T8S (see Figure 10).
    • Note: The T4S/T8S can be connected to a device via the Analog R Output port using a 1/4" TRS cable (sold separately). Plug the other end of the TRS cable into the Analog Input port of the device. To connect the T4S/T8S to two devices, connect a second device to the Analog L Output port on the T4S/T8S using a 1/4" TRS cable.
  3. Connect a ToneMatch* power supply to the Power port of the T4S/T8S and plug it into a live AC outlet. Refer to “Connecting the ToneMatch’ Power Supply” on page 14.

  1. Set the Input 1 Volume control to the 0 (zero) position.
  2. Connect the T8S ToneMatch mixer Main Output to the Input 1
  3. Adjust the volume of the T8S ToneMatch mixer Main Output to the maximum output without distortion. This is probably between 10:00 o'clock and 12:00 o'clock on the Master Output
  4. While playing music through the T8S ToneMatch mixer, increase the Volume level so that the Signal/Clip indicator glows green with flickers of red. This will probably be around 9:00-11:00 o'clock
  5. If the Signal/Clip indicator glows red, decrease the Volume level so that it glows only green or red. If you see red flashes longer than one second, turn down the volume.
