Question about Bose Acoustimass 10 II System

1 Answer

Initial Bose Speakr Hook-Up Acoust 10-Denon RCVR

Have Acoustimas 10 set in place with a Denon AVR-1909 Receiver.
1) Do I have to connect my speakers through the power subwoofer as indicated by the Bose Corp even though they state not to hook up receiver directly to speakers?
2) If I have 90Watts per channel (7.1) why would I need to use the subwfr for powering up my speakers, am I pushing the receiver to push the subwfr?
3) Does the receiver loose any capabilities going through the subwfr such as speaker 'test' to the receiver, HDMI audio capabilities, also will the Bose high volume levels interfere with with the Denon's Audyssey?
4) Bose also shows square bare wire clip connections which I do not have Denon has plugs, will I have to get bannana connectors?

Hope this may help but you will disappointed. as heard from some pro, your amp will blow up the bose cube if direct connected to them, they are powering down your output to fit their tiny speaker. My understanding was you have to hook up everything to the bose module. They don't like to play with others.

How do I hook up my bose 901s to this unit?


Well the basic connection of the speakers would be the same as another stereo speaker pair. Wire the left and right speakers to the L/R Front Surround speakers on the Denon.

With the 901's I am assuming that there is an external equalizer supplied by Bose. Typically this EQ is installed in a tape loop on the receiver/amp so that it is ahead of the power amplifier that drives the speakers. This EQ needs to be there to attempt to get reasonable frequency response from a speaker that has only 4" drivers. I'm not sure I see any reasonable way to make the EQ work with the Denon AV receiver. You'd likely be better off using the Bose speakers in a dedicated 2-channel stereo and getting a set of speakers for the AV usage.

I have a denon receiver avr 1909 and the remote control volume button do not work. A new remote control for this receiver is available?


If you mean a replacement, then I would contact Denon they should be able to tell you where and who can supply one. Generally replacement remotes are very expensive. So you might want to consider a universal one.

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.

Denon avr-1909 crackling sound while watching Uverse HD.


It may may the the AT+T box is really not compatible with the AVR or the Pioneer.

Check the specs on those input/outputs for the Ubox and the receiver.
See if they agree. If so, try another hookup method like HDMI ( which carries the audio too)

Denon AVR 2807 with Bose Acoustimass 15


Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807!
First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.)
Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer.
Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean.
If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way!
Cheers,
