How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Purchased used m audio w/o connect cables for cpu


The BX8's take either a TRS or XLR inputs only. from a laptop, you can get a 1/8" stereo to 1/4" l/r mono splitter cable at radio shack that will plug into the back. then just plug up and you will be good to go for about $10.
serously, though, you should save up and buy a studio level firewire or usb card like the presonus inspire and use that to connect. for 200 bucks more spent, you would have much better quality recordings and playbacks that are matched and line level.

BOO-YA!!!

Humming BX8


Hello docjgg,

This sounds like it may be a loose connection (ground) generation common mode noise or it may be a capacitor in the power supply going bad and not providing enough filtering of the AC voltage (allowing for 60 cycle hum). You should get a schematic for the speaker or just take some rule of thumb measurements of the power supply output, with an oscilloscope (you will be looking for ripple voltage, what you could do is use one of your good speakers as a comparison of good to bad.

If you do not want to work on this yourself, you could take the speaker to any TV repair shop or audio repair shop.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Hook up pair Bx8a to pc


XLR? not true. gold plated, balanced trs cables have a better sound and actually compliments the bx8's technology. that said, you can get cable that is trs-balanced on one end and rca's on the other. then just get a "Y" right-left rca into a stereo 1.5 cable. easy and cheap. but using xlr's for output? NO. save those for your input MIDI instruments and controllers.

Subwoffer how to connect it to my amp


You have the M-Audio BX8A speaker listed here. Is this what you have? If so, this is a powered speaker and therefor no need for an amplifier. If you want to use it as part of your 5.1 home theater system, it is not possible to power other speakers with this particular speaker, as it does not have the required output connections.

M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse


If your monitor is crackling and fizzing, that is not a fuse issue, unless the fuse you have installed is underrated. It sounds like you have a bad driver/woofer, and need to get it replaced. CLICK HERE FOR THE REPLACEMENT DRIVER for this model.
