SOURCE: Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem

AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

SOURCE: compatable receiver list for Bose 901 series VI

I contacted the Customer support folks at Bose. Here is what they said: With a stereo receiver, the equalizer is run through the tape monitor section in the back of the receiver. The receiver's tape monitor output, left and right, runs to the amp input section of the equalizer, left and right. Then the amp output section of the equalizer, left and right, runs to the receiver's tape monitor input section. With a surround sound, home theater, type of receiver, the theory is the same, but the connection is through the preamp-out/ main amp-in section of the receiver. Not all receivers have this feature. Most, in fact, do not. Check the back of the receiver. There would be a connection made by two U-shaped clips. The plugs would be pulled out. Then connect from the preamp-out to the equalizer's amp input section; and from the equalizer's amp output section to the main amp-in. This effectively isolates the equalizer so that it is not affecting the other speakers in the system or the receiver's surround processing. Attached is a current list of known 901-home theater compatible receivers:
Note: Specifications subject to change without notice. Bose Corporation is not responsible for any inaccuracies due to manufacturer changes. Inclusion in this list does not indicate an endorsement by Bose Corporation. When in doubt contact the manufacturer of the equipment.

I have the list in a pdf document but do not see a way to attach it.
Contact me at danmc@uwyo.edu and I'll forward the pdf.

SOURCE: Can I hookup a Bose 901 EQ to my receiver and amp?

Your instincts are correct. In fact, the only way the 901's can live in an A/V system is with dedicated amplification.

Put that old amp back to work.

This is exactly how mine are connected.

For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

SOURCE: bose speaker connection

The Bose systems are SYSTEMS for a very good reason. They're made for people who want good sound but don't want to manipulate the hardware much. The speakers and amps are designed for each other ONLY, not only electrically but through soundshaping to provide the smooth final result. The design is for you to feed the electronics a Line Level source and the magic and distribution happens internally. These are NOT mix 'n' match components. The special connectors are a clue. The Yamaha will probably blow them up if you manage to succeed with your plan.

SOURCE: No bass response

Seems there are 2 underlying problems-

no am/fm? are antennas connected? is there static active on any station tuned to?

in terms of low bass response- double check settings both in the receiver and also on the sub itself if any available.

Return unit to place of purchase, this is clearly a manufacture defect. The warranty will cover full replacement, do not allow them to attempt repair on the current item because you will be back and forth until warranty runs out.

I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to my Yamaha RX-V765 AV Receiver.


Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!
