It sounds like you want to use the external amp rather than the internal one. If that is the case, just connect the output of the EQ to the input of the external amp. All you are doing is inserting the EQ between the amp stages now. Using the mx-1 rather than the internal amp is no different.

I have an rx-v1000 w/ an adc equalizer ran in and out of the amp w/ a couple of splitters coming out of the eq and it seems to work great. I have even thought about splitting it again to run an m-80. My goal is to run 2 12'' on my m70, 2 15'' on the m-80 and 2 8'' on my stereo receiver. I have this set up half way and wouldn't mind any feedback from some experts out there.

How do I connect my 901 equalizer /speakers to the yamaha rx-v633 receiver?


Sorry, it doesnt look like you can hook up an external EQ while still using the amplifier section of the yamaha. Instead, You would have to use the preamp out to go to 901 EQ, out of the EQ into another stereo amplifier, then to the 901 speakers. Personally, to power the 901's properly, I'd use another external amplifier. You will barley get 75watts per channel out of the receiver to power the 901's

I assume you've placed the Bose Active EQ in where the Pre-Out >> Main In jumpers were. Do you have the return from the Bose Active EQ going back into the Main In so it can continue to the Sub Output.

Or do you have the Bose EQ Tape Switch activated incorrectly?

I recently bought the yamaha rx-v567 and I own a yamaha EQ-70. How do I configure and hook up the EQ to the receiver?


The EQ is connected via one of the Tape loops on the amp (rec out from EQ to play in on amp,rec out on amp to play in on EQ). You then switch "Tape Monitor" on to hear the sound with the EQ settings applied. You can also connect it across Pre out and Main in should you have such sockets. I'm pretty sure it will only affect the main two front channels and not the surround channels.

Want to use Yamaha rx-797 reciever with bose 901 and bose 301. Yamaha says tape monitor kills digital input signals. Also sya digital inputs are the optical jacks, RCA inputs are analog, but 797 does not...


I don't know why the comment from Yamaha about Tape Monitor killing digital inputs is relevant.

According to the manal I downloaded, THIS stereo receiver doesn't have digital inputs.

As to using 901's and 301's...

You will need a separate Power Amp for either the 901's or the 301's. Sorry, but you can't share the amp with the Active-Equalized signal and non-901's.

I use 901's and 301's in MY 7.1 rig with a separate amp for the 901 and NOT using a Tape Monitor, but a preamp out feed for the front channels.

Hello sounds like you want to take the low level zone 2 output and run it to the PRE AMP in?

If that is correct the onboard amplifier will power your speakers but will no longer provide sound for your main channel as you are removing the "loop" which send the front L & R signal to the amp.

Your best bet is to find an inexpensive secondary amplifier.

Sonance makes a sonamp 260 or 260x3. These are available on ebay for under $100 and work great for multiroom applications.
A 260x3 would give you 3 speaker outputs allowing you to run not only to your patio but also to two other locations and includes a switch to turn each zone on/ off.

Hope that helps

I am looking to upgrade my receiver to an audio video receiver that will hook up to a blue ray via HDMI. I want to use my 901's forthe front speakers. Can you recommend a mid priced (<$600) AVR that...


Good day,

Congrats on your new AV receiver. I own an awesome Yamaha mid-priced AV surround sound system with HDMI, BR disc player, and all that stuff. However, I'm old school and use my 901 Series Vs with a Yamaha RX-797 'two-channel' receiver. To get to the point, I have some bad news. Mid-priced (mp) AVRs, or any AVR for that matter, will not work with 901s because the active equalizer (EQ) requires either a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out / main-in' connection to work properly. You've probably been told the 'why they won't work' by now and it is very true--I know from experience. Most of today's AVRs do not include a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out/main-in connection for the EQ connection, thus, killing all hopes of using 901s. I truly love my 901 Series Vs (since 1985 and still kicking) and love true 'stereo' for playing my music. Again, 901s are useless with today's AVR equipment (as I know it). Just don't let your 901s collect dust--they are truly marvels!! Go with a set of good 'standard' speakers for the AVR system and buy yourself a decent stereo receiver or amp for the 901s--that's how I do it!! I've tried Onkyo, Rotel, Sansui, Poineer amps / receivers--all of them. I can tell you this--for the common, working man/woman, nothing, I mean nothing available can match-up with Bose 901s like a Yamaha RX-797 (200W)--not to mention the sound quality-wow!!! And this unit is very reasonably priced for such awesome performance and high quality build. Just know that all is not lost. You can still use your 901s--I cna't listen to music without mine.

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.

Bose 901 equalizer


Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.

Graeme
