Question about Bose Acoustimass 10 II System

Hooking up the sub

Hi there
I have no idea what i am doing here and need some advise. I have bought, separately a bose 7 speaker kit (a passive sub and 3 pair of cubes) and an active sub from a 5 series IV kit. I want to run them all separately through a Denon 2805 for movies and music but I can't work out how to connect the sub. The active sub has what looks like an s-video input on it so does that mean the other ends need to be bare or should i get RCA's and put them through the pre-outs. thanks in advance, Audioclot

To connect the passive sub you have to connect the provided wires to the receiver then to the sub's inputs and from the sub's outputss to the cube speakers. It seems complicated but you'll see that is very easy if you lokk at the sub's connection panel.
Hope that i helped...

How do i connect my pv2600amp to my peavey subs and top speakers, i have the leads but what do i do?


Line outs Left and Right from mixer to power amp Left and Right inputs,
Power amp outs to Subs(if they have passive crossovers built in check specs on subs).
From Subs then to Main spkrs. Make sure power amp is set in stereo mode using this way.

Alternative: You will need at least a 2-way stereo crossover unit inline after mixer and before power amps if the subs don't have a built in passive crossover. Most of them do have passive crossovers in the subs these days. Then separate amps or one channel would drive the subs and the other the main speakers. True stereo would require at least a 2 way crossover and two stereo power amps if hooking them up this way.

There is another option as is common with many sub setups. Send the signal to the mains using L/R outputs from mixer and a separate Mono output to the subs only. Putting only bass/kick and low frequency outputs in this send would help too.

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.
