Question about Velodyne Audio Players & Recorders
If your subwoofer has a line level input (RCA-style plug), see page 24 of this link: http://www.audioproducts.com.au/downloadcenter/products/Denon/AVRX2000BK/Manuals/AVRX2000E2_ENG_CD-ROM_IM_v00.pdf
Run a cable from that to the line level input on the subwoofer. If I understood you correctly, here's a link to the owner's manual: http://velodyne.com/vx-11.html

one option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers.
and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp.
this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq.
will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly.

I contacted the Customer support folks at Bose. Here is what they said:
With a stereo receiver, the equalizer is run through the tape monitor section in the back of the receiver. The receiver's tape monitor output, left and right, runs to the amp input section of the equalizer, left and right. Then the amp output section of the equalizer, left and right, runs to the receiver's tape monitor input section. With a surround sound, home theater, type of receiver, the theory is the same, but the connection is through the preamp-out/ main amp-in section of the receiver. Not all receivers have this feature. Most, in fact, do not. Check the back of the receiver. There would be a connection made by two U-shaped clips. The plugs would be pulled out. Then connect from the preamp-out to the equalizer's amp input section; and from the equalizer's amp output section to the main amp-in. This effectively isolates the equalizer so that it is not affecting the other speakers in the system or the receiver's surround processing. Attached is a current list of known 901-home theater compatible receivers:

I have the list in a pdf document but do not see a way to attach it.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the Tape Monitor with any type of stereo-only sound processor (non-Bose EQ, dbx expander, etc) and the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I have a whole stack of analog processors, tape and CD recorders slaved to my single Tape Monitor and then into a dbx400x Program Route Selector. It not only expands my Tape Monitor to handle nearly unlimited external devices but it makes routing for listening or recording easy with simple pushbuttons. But I digress...
The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great! With one caveat - My receiver actually has 5.1 analog Outputs (probably like yours) so I can drive up to 6 external amplifiers if I want to (I drive 4).
A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.
You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.
** Front L&R Pre Out >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> NEW amplifier IN.
Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

The volume control pot can be replaced.
Any good quality audio shop or electronics repair shop should be able to fix this.

SOURCE: i cannot connect my bose
Short answer from personal experience.
There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.
The reason: You can't use the Active EQ (or ANY processor) in a tape Monitor loop with anything but 2-channel stereo material. As soon as you activate the loop you lose digital sources.
Adding to YOUR particular problem is that the Denon doesn't have a volume-controlled pre-out to feed that amp. If you want to deal with controlling the separate amp volume manually you COULD connect the Active EQ between DVR Out and the 901 amp IN but you would have a stereo mixdown instead of true front channel from the speakers.
