Glad the mixers have been updated, but a couple of questions on them. Why a camera tripod mount? That seems odd to me. Can the T4S not mount to a mic stand? This also seems like they won't be able to mount on the L1s either. Also, I get that the L1 MII won't output enough power from the stand, but it should be able to connect digitally to them.
Again, to me these all seem like odd exclusions/decisions. Hopefully one of the Bose folks will chime in with some answers.
Likely, the most criticized aspect of the T1® was the much-maligned microphone stand adapter. With the screw in capability and compatibility with standard mounting systems, those criticisms have been addressed.
I may or may not use a camera tripod, but I have at least a couple lying around here. I also have some brackets that clamp onto a microphone stand
that I can use with adapters like the ones in the picture above.
I had purchased several of those adapters & then I was forced to buy several more from Bose Corp. because the things literally crumbled in one's hands when simply installing them or when removing them to place on a different mike stand, etc.... What a nightmare!
This new arrangement, with a quality quick release mounting bracket(..or not), would allow for more versatility & for more creative locations to mount. Bravo!
It's personal choice. Initially I was worried the magmount would not hold the T4S, but having now experienced both, even my partner says "go ahead and order the magmount and replace the screw mount" and believe me she's careful with what I earn!
When all is said and done - BOTH the mounts have a screw fastening just to be on the safe side - but the magmount is way easier and quicker to locate while setting up in a hurry - it just grabs the arm, then you finger tight the screw and that doesn't need to be over tight..
Thanks for all the really helpful Pics and advice you've posted here. Sorry to trouble you further , but ou mentionioned earlier that you would be happy to post extra pictures of the full mounting system ( yes please).
What was the actual item/ s full mounting package called that you ordered from joy factory and the total cost including postage, if thats ok?
Thanks for all the great info, ScubaBadger. Ordered two Mag Mounts and One Arm. Want to try with both iPad and T4s. If works well for my setup will consider a second arm. Hopefully will hold up well over time. Saw some reviews on Amazon that the arm had broken in a few months.
I would love to mount this in a case, If you have done this, I would love to see a picture, My goal is to mount it in a case with two wireless mics, and a power distribution unit like a Furman. hoping you have some good examples. TIA.
Yesterday, I received the parts to mount my T4S on a mic stand. I used the "On Stage" components that ST shared a while back. In addition, I went to our local "Tractor Supply Store" and bought a "Hillman 5/8 X 2-1/4 X 1/8" rubber washer.
I needed the washer to make a spacer between the video camera adapter and the microphone extension bar because the camera adapter wouldn't tighten up. The rubber washer would have worked fine as it was but I trimmed it down to the size of the extension bar.
This set up makes a very sturdy and adjustable mount. I like it much better than the original mount available for the T1.
Thanks ST for posting your original information! This forum is an extremely valuable resource to me.
Amazon just sent me a "recommendation" for this mic stand extension. I don't know if I'd like it better than the one discussed previously in this thread, but I thought I'd share it in case others might be interested in a more flexible mount for the T4/T8. It's always good to have options!
