    I originally had ability to play music through outdoor speakers but when I purchased the 321 system that option went away. Interested in any methods to add additional speakers without decreasing the quality of the 321 sound system.

Sir my speaker bose 301 series v and i connect to amplifier pioneer 5 x130 watts.also i have center speaker.bose this compatible to good music and movie....

If they're all Bose 301-5's then you have the rare instance of matching speakers all around, so when sounds move around the room in a movie they don't change. I'm envious because even though I have Bose 901's (front) and 301's I don't have that exact match you have. The 301 sound is very good to my ears.

I assume you have them all set as LARGE speakers in the Pioneer, since they are capable of good bass and the parameter is more about Bass response than actual size.

If you added a subwoofer (which you may not need) you might fill in the lowest bass and effects channel.

Better sound through bose speakers?

If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

Adding subwoofer

Hello dongurian,

You can add the Bass600 even if your Pioneer does not have any premap outputs. The Bass600 has speaker level inputs and you should have gotten a keyed plug with pigtail wires to attach to the speaker output. Or, you can use a line-out converter if desired.

Hope this helps.

Adding Spaekers

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

Adding equalizer to system

TIB's are notoriously rigid in their design. An EQ would go in between the source and the amplifer, typically in a Tape Monitor loop if a receiver is powering the speakers. This unit has nothing like that.

The manual implies you can record OUT to a tape deck and play it back (later) through the AUX but that does not mean you can send a signal out and get it back simultaneously as a real tape Monitor would do. Attached in the prescribed configuration, your EQ would be signal-starved as soon as you selected AUX. Dead silence would be the result.

Even if it was a true Monitor circuit, the change imparted would be to the entire program and anything down stream, including the subwoofer, would be affected.

A crossover could be used with a few high-end receivers or complete separate components and bi-amped speakers only.

Many people want to use an EQ with their modern multi-channel Digital Sound Processing gear but at best an analog 2-channel EQ (or any other processor) will only work with analog stereo sources. On most receivers, simply selecting the Tape Monitor disables all digital inputs. However, most DSP can still be employed with stereo source material and a 2-channel processor, with varying degrees of aesthetic pleasantness. Beauty is indeed in the ear of the beholder.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)

Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!
