Probably not. Bose has their own laws of acoustics and all eq. and crossover points are done inside. You need a separate crossover component to accomplish this. From a professional viewpoint, we always say BOSE = Buy Other Sound Equipment and the EQ/Crossover/phasing trickery inside every Bose system is a large reason for this.
mcdevito75 here, The HP speakers that came with your computer work fine, the bose speakers work fine on your other computer, the plug on the Bose speakers is a little shorter than the HP speakers, and only the right Boss speaker is working, HMM, Check the Bose speakers, both of them for a volume control 1 of them may need adjustment on this particular computer. If that"s not it, I would speak to a Radio Shack, Staples etc.
Bose Lifestyle (and all Bose-amplified speaker) products and their speakers are SYSTEMS and should not be split up or intermixed with other brands or models. Damage will probably result. Proprietary connectors provides a clue.
The digital audio out should work with the Bose. You could still use your Denon to drive a conventional sub in your scheme, but you would have to manually match volume with the Bose. Or go Full Monty and buy a full complement of speakers for the Denon, retask the Bose and slave its sources to the Denon.
Unfortunately this is impossible on the 321 series II systems. There also is no audio output on the media center to send to another amp either. As you may know, the 2 speakers are actually 4 speakers. Each small speaker array has 2 drivers. The 2 on the outside will project rear-channel audio to the sides, so placement of these speakers is important. Honestly, adding speakers would not make this sound very good.
If the sound isn't too great as is, make sure you're using digital audio cables (optical or coax) from any external sources like a cable box or Blu-ray player. (if you don't see a Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 read-out on front of the media center, you'll know it's not digital. DVDs the exception)
Hi sorry but what do you mean that you have lifestyle 18 system? The lifestyle 18 system consist of the media center/DVD player, the bass module, the satellite speakers and the RF remote control (aside from tons of cables)
If you have the media center/DVD only, then you require the power adaptor. you can test if the media center is functioning if the LCD display is working. you can also connect an external powered speaker or an amplifier fro mteh AUX out behind the media center.
Do note that doing so will only give you limited control of the system since you require the whole lot to make everything work properly.
No. You would need some kind of audio out connections on the back of the media center. The only audio outs it has are the Acoustimass® Module – SPDIF connector.
Unless you were to hook up an amp before the Bose media center. In other words, you could run your TV to another amp's line in. You would hook up additional speakers to this other amp, then run audio line outs to the line in of your Bose media center. Some stereo amps have a line out or record/tape out, it is from here that you would run the cables to your Bose media center line ins. The disadvantage to doing it this way is you would have to plug all your media devices (dvd, tv, etc) into this amp first and your Bose remote wouldn't let you switch between devices. If your media devices you have offer digital audio, then you would want an amp that also offers a digital out for the best sound. Otherwise you will end up with analog out from this amp to the Bose media center and thus lose any of the digital signal information like surround information. So there isn't much point in doing this. If your gonna get an amp that has all the digital in's and out's, you might as well just use it with new speakers and forget the Bose system you have.
