I have the speakers and all cables for a bose 3-2-1 system, but I don't have the central unit. How can i connect the speakers to a reciever or get an audio input to the speakers/

When they don't publish trhe specs such as power output or speaker impedance and power-handling capacity that means it's a SYSTEM.

Proprietary cabling is a huge clue that these speakers are not necessarily electrically compatible with any other electronics.

Try the speakers with another tv, hook them right into the back and verify that they are the problem but my best bet is that it is not the speakers and rather the system. Good luck and if you have any further questions, please let me know, thank you.

Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system

this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

No surround sound

It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

Hook up brookstone wireless outdoor speaker

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.
