Engineered with a powerful DSP engine and intuitive user control, the T8S offers studio-quality EQ, dynamics and effects.

Play confidently on stage with the rugged T8S using its tactile controls, easy-to-read LED display and scene recall.

The T8S: a true performer’s companion.

8-channel DSP Mixer with XLR Balanced Outputs

The perfect match for the Bose F1 system, L1 Pro8, Pro16 or Pro32, or any of the legacy Bose L1 series.  It’s an audio mixer that works perfectly with any professional PA speakers.

As a mixer, the 8-channel T8S is beautifully laid out, with dedicated knobs for levels, mutes, and ToneMatch presets rather than endless menus — which makes it great for performers coming from an analogue mixer environment. But the real magic behind the T8S lies in its ToneMatch technology and no-compromises DSP. Just tell the mixer which microphone you’re using or what kind of guitar you have plugged into it, and the T8S optimizes sound for you on the spot. Performers can further customize their tone using channel-independent compressors, gates, EQs, and even a tap-tempo delay.

Intelligent EQ and effects

Fine-tune your sound system with greater accuracy using Bose’s intelligent zEQ system. It redefines low, mid, and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset. When you need to cut or boost specific frequency ranges for different instruments and mics, zEQ gives you the power. Globally assign one of five different reverbs to each mic/line channel. You can also choose from three delay types, 10 additional effects, and seven dynamics processors — and assign them independently to each channel.

Easy live streaming

Additionally, the Bose T8S’s built-in USB output allows you to stream your audio directly to social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Connect the T4 to your Mac or PC and you can access studio-quality preamps, phantom power, and effects. Finally, the 6-band master EQ helps compensate for the ambient acoustics around you.

Magnetic mixer cover

For protection and peace of mind, the T8S ToneMatch Mixer includes a magnetic cover. This feature both preserves levels from gig to gig and protects your T8S from damage on the road or at the show.

Hundreds of sonic refinements — instantly

The ToneMatch audio engine puts Bose’s largest library of customized presets at your command. These ToneMatch presets instantly optimize instruments at the touch of a button. Different presets can be independently assigned to each of the engine’s four channels. For example, select the exact mic presets for the microphones you’re using on channels 1 and 2, your guitar model for channel 3, and your bass model for channel 4 — all at the same time. And with the Tonematch T8s, you’ve still got channels to spare!

Bose’s engineers often work with manufacturers directly to expand the ToneMatch preset library, and updates are available to you for free with easy downloading via the built-in USB port.

Tvs vs T8s - what's the difference?

ToneMatch Mixers Family T4S & T8S

  • Is the Bose L1 mono or stereo?

    Even though each L1 has multiple little speakers inside, technically the L1 Pro is a single speaker system.  This means is can only ever be a mono speaker.

    But – what if you’re sending a stereo signal to it, or if you’re running two speakers?

    There’s quite a bit to this topic.  Read the simple breakdown explanation here.


  • Can I use the T1, T4s or T8s with the F1 system?

    Yes. The F1 system is compatible with the ToneMatch audio engine.

    You’ll need a stand-alone power supply for the T1 or T4s, but the T8s comes with a power unit.

    There is no ToneMatch port on the F1 812 or sub, you’ll need to use 6.3mm TRS cables from the master out.



  • Does the Bose L1 Pro8 have reverb?

    Does the Bose L1 Pro8 have reverb?

    Yes, reverb is available on the L1 Pro8 (and Pro16 and Pro32, the S1 Pro and S1 Pro+ as well).

    You can adjust the reverb on channel 1 and channel 2 on the L1 Pro8, or you have even more control if you connect the T4s or T8s Tonematch mixers.
