Bose T8S Tonematch Mixer

Write a Review

8-channel DSP Mixer with XLR Balanced Outputs

If you've got a speaker system with line-level XLR inputs, such as the Bose F1, the Bose T8S ToneMatch Mixer is your ticket to eight Bose-grade mic/line channels and rich stereo DSP.

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 analog 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.

Unprecedented control with portability


Take control of your music with the T8S ToneMatch mixer, a compact eight channel interface designed for performers. Engineered with a powerful DSP engine and intuitive user control, the T8S offers studio quality EQ, dynamics and effects. Sound great with integrated Bose ToneMatch processing and zEQ, especially when connected to a Bose L1 or F1 system for full end to end tonal control. 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.


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

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. Additionally, the T8S's 6-band master EQ helps compensate for venue acoustics.

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.

Bose T4S and T8S: which mixer is right for me?

The biggest differences between these mixers are the number of onboard channels and the ways in which they interface with your sound system. Don't hesitate to reach out to your Guitar World Sales Engineer with further questions.
