1 Answer

HOW CAN I CONECT THE BOSE TO MY YAMAHA AMP THE ONLY WAY TO CONECT THE BOSE IS TO BANANA INPUTS ON MY AMP AND THEY ARE FRONT SPEAKERS BUT THE AMP HAS A SUB OUTPUT

MY DSP-A5 AMP HAS A STANDARD OUTPUT FOR AN AMP BUT TO DRIVE THE BOSE IT NEEDS TO BE CONECTED TO MY BANANA INPUTS THAT ARE FOR FRONT SPEAKERS SO MY SUB THAT IS WIRED TO MY BANANA INPUTS IS NOT WORKING LIKE A SUB IT'S WORKING LIKE A NORMAL SPEAKER

To enable the full potential of a SUB for Yamaha DSP A5 ,

you need to have

a separate amplifier for your Bose Acoustimass System.


The SUB out should be connected to an active subwoofer.

SOURCE: do I need special speaker wires to hook up bose

It comes with special connectors - not necessarily special wire.

You will need the Lifestyle Cables.

If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 50 - connection to a non-bose amplifier

The 2 system are completely different your is low level input and its is having only 2 input L and R when those signal they get inside your sub it process through an DSP ( Digital Signal Processor ) and become 5 output to yours satellite cube speakers
The AM6 or 10 are high level input connected direct to any output of any AMP from those signal they convert down to low frequency for sub woofer

SOURCE: Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system

this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

How to connect my Bose 901 series vI speaker to yamaha rx v740 and rotel rb 1582. Appreciate your help. Thanks


The Bose controller gets wired in series between the pre-amp and the power amp.

I presume you plan to use the 901's as the front L&R pair. So the cables going from the 740's Pre-Out Front L&R go to the inputs on the Bose controller. The outputs of the Bose controller go to the power amp Front L&R channel inputs.

04 Infiniti sedan w/ factory Bose. Front speakers are not working (no sound at all) and I adjusted fade all the way both ways. Back speakers are fine. What's up?


If the rear speakers are fine, perhaps I can narrow this down. Fuses must be OK. Steering wheel audio controls connect to the audio unit which has a preamp function. The W/BK outputs connect to the left front inputs of the Bose speaker amplifier; the GRN/RED outputs connect to the right front inputs. Your ear test confirms the front door speakers are not working, therefore there is no front door output from the amplifier. The amplifier stages for the front doors may not be working or no front door amplifier input is being received from the audio unit. The fader and balance controls do not show on the diagram so must be on the front panel. They could be defective. There is a remote possibility of broken/disconnected wires

Hi There, I have a Marantz SR7005 Receiver and Bose 901 Series VI speakers with the Bose equalizer. I'm struggling to figure out the best way to connect the Bose equalizer/speakers to the SR7005. ...


It sounds like you've read one of my many posts on 901 deployment in the AV world.

Functionally, what is the difference between one amp with 'x' channels or 'x' mono amps? Nothing. Pre-outs don't know or care what else an external amp does.

According to this link http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/products/new/642968.html those amps are 2- and 5-channel, respectively.

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.

I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.

The MM7025 would work for you.

Well if you look on the back it plainly says speakers should be between 8-16 ohms.

It has facilities for 2 pairs of fronts (A and B) which could be run concurrently if they met the >8-ohm spec.

http://www.use.com/showorig.pl?set=767cb5bb4ea6f30a06fc&p=6

The JBL's would work best as primary front speakers.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/JBL-CF100-Speakers-manual/id/597bh151/t/2/

If you wired the Bose in series with each other, they'd work as one surround speaker 'pair' electrically, maybe even sonically if you arrange them across the sides and/or rear. I'd experiment.

You'll need a separate amp for any center or sub speakers.

Want to use Yamaha rx-797 reciever with bose 901 and bose 301. Yamaha says tape monitor kills digital input signals. Also sya digital inputs are the optical jacks, RCA inputs are analog, but 797 does not...


I don't know why the comment from Yamaha about Tape Monitor killing digital inputs is relevant.

According to the manal I downloaded, THIS stereo receiver doesn't have digital inputs.

As to using 901's and 301's...

You will need a separate Power Amp for either the 901's or the 301's. Sorry, but you can't share the amp with the Active-Equalized signal and non-901's.

I use 901's and 301's in MY 7.1 rig with a separate amp for the 901 and NOT using a Tape Monitor, but a preamp out feed for the front channels.

I want to use my 901 speakers with the yamaha rx 797 receiver and also my bose 601 in same room can i do that?


I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver2_bing.gif will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers2_bing.gif and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers2_bing.gif.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier2_bing.gif that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.

Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.

Can I hookup a Bose 901 EQ to my receiver and amp?


Your instincts are correct. In fact, the only way the 901's can live in an A/V system is with dedicated amplification.

Put that old amp back to work.

This is exactly how mine are connected.

For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

I have a question first... are the 901's amplified by a separate amp as they should be in a multi-channel (non-stereo) setup?

Better yet read the following then decide if you have iy set up right to begin with. If so, I'd just treat the Ipod or Mac as auxilliary inputs on the receiver. :
