Bose 901 equilizer connections to sansui G901DB


It sounds like you may have only the 901 loudspeakers, and not also the companion 901 equalizer box. You must install the 901 equalizer properly--using the tape monitor loop of the G901 receiver. If you of not, the 901 loudspeakers will perform poorly.

I have a velodyne sub woofer needs amp power source I have a kenwood eq and a sony reciever trying to figure out how to hook it all up right


So, you don't have a powered Velodyne sub (with a built in amp?)

Without model numbers - I"ll guess that there are speaker in and out connections on the back of the sub.

You simply connect the left and right speaker wires from the receivers to the subwoofers input speaker wire connections.

Then connect your main speakers from the sub's Out (or "speaker"} connections so that the sub is in line with the speaker path.

Use the sub's crossover settings on the back till you hca a seamless blend of the sub to the speakers where it is hard to tell you have a sub other than you your music now has deeper bass.

Why do you need the Kenwood EQ? This is not a necessary piece as nobody really knows how to use it properly and it realy complicates how you use your system. Flashing lights look cool though, right?

If you really must complicate the operation of your system then connect the Tape output of your receiver to the tape input of the Kenwood EQ, Then connect the Tape output of the Kenwood EQ to the Tape input of your receiver - assuming your receiver even has tape ins and outs.

You can engage the Kenwood EQ by inserting it into the audio path when you select the appropriate Tape input as the source on your receiver.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I have own a pair of peavey impulse 1012 speakers. One of them has developed a fault in that the output is terribly owful at low volume compared to the other one but an increase in the output from the...


"terribly owful " is not a descripption we can really understand. You need to describe whether the probllem is with the bass or treble speaker... lows/highs... The only suggestion we can give is to open the unit. You will need a LONG phillips screwdriver and remove all the screws in wells around the edges from the back and then gently separate the shell. Inspect for loose wiring. You don
t mention if you are using this as bi-amped or not which we need to know. This unit has the soundguard protection of the tweeter which consists of an automotive type lamp and a polyfuse. I would open the unit and see if there is a problem with the connections or possiblly a socket problem with the lamp as that would disturb the tweeter level. If you are bi-ampong this, then verify that swapping the speakers the problem is the speaker and NOT the cable or amp... Also verify the switch on the back of the speaker is properly set.

Qualifier: I have 901's in a 7.1 setup and have written many posts on Fixya regarding how to do it right.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR ANY PURPOSE UNLESS THE RISK OF ACCIDENTAL SPEAKER DESTRUCTION IS A ACCEPTABLE.

ONLY now it does that? "VERY WEAK" as in attentuated somewhat or is it signal leakage, effectively silence? How is the EQ wired in? Check its own Tape Monitor button.

If you DO NOT have a separate amplifier for the 901's the EQ will affect EVERY speaker and we know that is NOT desired.

If the EQ is in a Tape Loop of a modern AVR and you activate the loop two things will happen: 1) the 901's will sound better and the rest of the speakers will be at risk from excessive amplitude at the extremes; 2) any digital source will be disabled.

If your system is equipped with a tape monitor loop, you can switch the EQ out of the circuit by disengaging the tape monitor switch. If the EQ is connected to the pre-out / main-in jumper, you would have to defeat the EQ before you hook up a conventional speaker. I don't believe the EQ has a defeat switch - you'd have to rig a bypass.

Once defeated, if you have a system equipped with a Speaker A / Speaker B selector, the smaller speakers could hook up to the second system. If that's not possible, speaker switches are available for reasonable money. It is very important, though, that the 901 EQ i defeated when using conventional loudspeakers.

I have a set of 901 IV with no equializer, I am


As far as I know, any equalizer will work. There is a guy on here that might know more about them, but I never had the Bose equalizer and I have Bose speakers for 35 years. The guy at the electronic store back then sold us a little equalizer at first, we graduated from that a long time ago, and now on the 3rd or 4th one. No problem, works great, sounds better than ever. Hope this helps.

I need advice on how to connect my very old BOSE 901 (with active eq) to this device: Martin Roland MA 3000K I see pre-out and pre-in but cannot locate main-in. Please help here is the back of its image:...


As you probably know, the Bose 901 Active EQ is there to modify the frequency spectrum fed to the 901's so they will produce a flat response. Without it, they sound acceptable in the midrange but lacking in bass. Since they have no woofers or tweeters, the modification is drastic and should never be applied to non-Bose-901 speakers or they could be damaged.

This setup should work for mixing and playing but I'm not sure if recordings directly from the unit's REC Out or Line Out would have the Active EQ effect on them. You'll need to perform a few tests to see how it all works for playback AND recording.

Remove the jumpers for Pre In >> Out

Insert the Active EQ in their place by running:

1. RCA cables from Pre Out to the Active EQ In (From Aux, Tape Out)
2. RCA cables from the Active EQ Out (To Amp, Tape In)

Use ONLY 901's on this amp with the EQ.

The Bose Active EQ has its own Tape Rec/Monitor loop to replace the one it normally occupies in a typical receiver application, so if you wish to record your mix you should use those connectors for your tape deck and there will be no problems with the Active EQ effect being recorded. The Monitor Tape/Source switch on the EQ functions just like a typical Tape Monitor. For playback of the recording, switch it to Tape.

The manual, available at http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/acekaraoke/MA3000K.pdf
doesn't get into any detail on the innards of the mixer.

In a typical integrated amp or receiver, the jumpers removed are between the Preamp Output and the Main Amp input, but BEFORE the amp's volume and tone controls, so manipulating them would not affect a recording. You should experiment with it by making recordings through both and adjusting speaker volume to see if it changes.

I would be curious to know what the functional difference is between the designated LINE Out, REC Out and PRE Out jacks in that regard. Normally, Line Out and REC Out will not vary with amp volume, but I expect in this mixer it does, or you wouldn't be able to control the volume from it. Experiment.

Of course, you probably want the mixed effects to be recordable, so I assume they'll appear at all outputs. Play back the test recording (at an initial low level, just in case) and see if you can detect an exaggerated low end (due to the 901 bass boost being applied in recording AND playback through the 901's. If the recording volume doesn't vary with speaker volume and the playback sounds as flat as the recording you're good to go.

If there is are volume variations or an additive effect, you may have to draw the REC Out to the deck's input and run the deck's output to the Tape In on the 901 Active EQ, monitoring only on deck playback.

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.

901's directed to TV


Yes, you can plug your TV directly into the Bose 901 Equalizer, but you will still need to go from the EQ into an amp to drive the speakers. The Bose EQ basically is for the speakers, not the signal coming in to it. Because of the speaker design, the EQ "shapes" the sound to compensate for the speakers. Please rate my answer, thanks.

My pioneer deq-9200 equilizer keeps resetting to default settings whenever i start my engine. What's going on here?


The EQ has two power wires on the back like a head unit. One is constant power, and the other one is ignition/switched power. This normally happens when the installer takes the switched power and applies it to both power leads going into the EQ or head unit. The EQ needs the constant power line run to a 12V source that never turns off. The constant power line is normally yellow, and the switched power line is normally red.
