Can I hook my TV directly up to Bose 201 speakers?

I'm thinking of buying my boyfriend Bose 201 speakers for his hdtv but am wondering if I have to buy a receiver/ woofer, as well? Is there any way he can just hook up the speakers directly to the TV?

It depends on the TV audio output connections. Most TVs have low level audio outputs (RCA Jacks) that require a amp but some do have external speaker connections. You will have to refer to your manual or check the back of the set.

I just purchased a pair of Bose 201 V used speakers. When the receiver is on the right speaker makes a low intermitment bass vibration.


Absent audio input, speakers are silent. It's NOT the speakers.

Check how your speaker wires are routed. They may be picking up airborne electrical impulses from something. Also check your signal cables.

How to hook up to hdtv


You should be able to connect the bose directly from the cable box. You also can connect from the audio output of the TV itself providing it has an audio output.If all eslse fails you can use the headphone output from the TV to the input of the Bose system

I am planning on buying Denon AVR 1909 receiver. Can hook it up with Bose Acoustimass 6 speakers. DOes the Denon blow up the small bose speakers. If yes how do i hook them up.


on the am 6 by bose you have to use all the supplied cables or you will blow them. the way it works is that all the speaker signal/power from the denon goes directly to the sub, then the sub sends the signal to each speaker. if you do this correctly the sub takes what it needs and sends the rest to the smaller speakers. and you wont blow them unless you hook them directly to your reciever.

901's directed to TV


Yes, you can plug your TV directly into the Bose 901 Equalizer, but you will still need to go from the EQ into an amp to drive the speakers. The Bose EQ basically is for the speakers, not the signal coming in to it. Because of the speaker design, the EQ "shapes" the sound to compensate for the speakers. Please rate my answer, thanks.

Need a diagram to hook my Bose CinemaT speakers. When I hook it directly to the tv no problem but can't figure out how to hookup my reciever and CD player to work also? Help Please


You'd be better off hooking the speakers to the RECEIVER'S speaker outputs, THEN hooking your TV audio output to an unused receiver input, such as AUX. The signals from your receiver cannot reach the TV; thus your CD player and radio will not play through the speakers if the speakers are hooked to the TV. All receiver INPUTS are designed to accept the same signal level; thus, you can use any input for your TV audio, such as Aux, DVD, CD, etc. Just remember which input you're using for the TV audio, and everything should work fine. Almost all receivers have an AUX input; hopefully yours also has a dedicated CD input to avoid confusion. The you simply select the AUX input to hear your TV through the speakers.

Ldc/hdtv hook-up


Salutations kajeong,

Normally there are not connections on a television to provide "auxillary" speakers to the original unit. Looking at the owners manual for several of the Aquos units it appears that it would have audio outputs, but these normally wouldn't be available for things such as speakers.

Normally the only way to get what your looking for done is by using a separate amplifier and speaker set and controlling the volume for that.

I hope this helps.

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture


You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose
