Yes, but it all depends on your TV and its audio capabilities.

Ideally, the TV should have a variable-volume RCA stereo output so you can control the speaker volume with the TV control. Otherwise, speaker volume would be under the control of the amo. Run an RCA pair to any non-Phono stereo input on the amp.

Does your tv have stereo outputs? if yes all you have to do is run RCA red..white jacks into tv outtput then run the other ends into the amps tape or aux or cd input and your done! If you dont have outputs on tour tv you will have to but an RF converter box (about 20.00 at wal-mart) and hook that into the tv and the cables will run out of that to the stereo!

Simple.Depending on the number of HD gadgets you have,you need either 2 or 4 channel HDMI converter.Connect the HDMI output to your tv and connect other equipments to the various HDMI,VGA,component and composite inputs,including your Bose System.

I'm trying to hook up a Carver HR-752 to Bose 901's series VI, I would like to use the preamp out and in on the back, do I need a seperate amp to use these? I have them going through the Tape


To setup the Bose 901's so that all of your connected equipment's sound (cable/dvd/games/stereo/etc) comes out of the 901's.
If you already have a receiver with front left and right pre-outs, I would add an amplifier. (other option is a pre-amp) Use the amplifier to create the loop the 901's need w/ their EQ and it will also add a cleaner sound and added power. That's how you can really make the Bose 901's sound amazing.

Trying to hook up bose 901 v to sansui 8080db is


Just remove the Pre-Out to Main In jumpers and connect the Active Equalizer there. This way it will affect only the power output to the amp and speakers but not to any of the Tape Loops. If you need more, look around on Fixya for 901 advice and you'll find about a million posts by me for many scenarios, including multi-channel.

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

I have an old integrated amplifier and an old BSR EQ-3000 stereo frequency equalizer. i just bought a used bose 901 speaker set. how do i hook-up the bose 901 equalizer in this system?


Hook the signal source to the equalizer input and the equalizer output signal to one of the signal inputs on your amp. This is one way, but this way only one signal source will go through the equalizer (unless it has several signal inputs and a source selector switch).

The other way (inserting the equalizer between the preamp and the main amp) is:

If your amp has RCA connectors on the back named "preamp out" (or similar) and "power amp in" (or similar) that have slugs connecting them, remove the slugs, hook the "preamp out" signals from the amplifier unit to the signal inputs on the equalizer and outputs from the equalizer to the "power amp in" inputs on the amplifier.

Basically, what you do is that you insert the equalizer between the preamplifier section and the power amp section of the integrated amplifier so that you can still select the signal source without having to switch any signal cables (however, i can't say if your amp has got this type of "slug" connection feature between the preamp and the power amp on the rear panel, so i'm not sure which way you'll have to hook it up).

Hope you can make it work the way you want.

Do all speakers have fuses? I may have blown one of my Bose 151 outdoor speakers, but can't find a fuse inside.


Unfortunately many speakers do not have fuses. Most likely the voice coil has opened up inside the speaker itself. You can either get a replacement driver (speaker) or re-cone the one you have. In any case, the driver needs to be replaced.

You can verify this if you use an ohmmeter. With an 8 ohm impedence speaker, the reading should be about 6 ohms. If you read a higher number or infinity, the coil is bad.

Additional speakers for 321 system


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.
