    Thanks so much for the last bit of info. That has made is clear to me. This Soundmaster Powerhouse 300 is such a great bit of kit I would like connect it to the Bose speakers and controller, but if it has to be a seperate amp/mixer-so be it.

    Thanks for getting me clude-up to the way the system works - everything you have sent has made sense. Keep up the good work. Pete

In a nutshell, the controller would go between any preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You really don't have much choice in the matter. The 802's and their controller are part of an inseperable system.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.


I don't have any data on your mixer/amp but if you can't insert the conroller logically between the mixer and its amps then you'll have to get separate dedicated amplification for the 802's, with the controller between the mixer and that amp.

How to connect Mackie Mixer 1402vlz4 to Bose Accoustimass 5 speaker


you need a power amplifier between the mixer and the speakers to actually drive the speakers. You would have to choose which amp to use (the manual, found here: http://www.bose.ca/controller?url=/shop_online/speakers/stereo_speakers/acoustimass_5/index.jsp#manuals suggests between 10-200 WRMS for power), and thus would have to determine the cabling options depending on the amp you choose, but...go from either the MAIN or CONTROL ROOM outputs of the Mackie mixer into the inputs of the power amp. Then go from the outputs of the power amp to the inputs on the Acoustimass bass module, which also runs the Acoustimass satellite speakers.

How do I connect a Bose 802 speaker controller to my Spirit 600 powerstation


If you look in the manual at the "hookups" page 1, connect the controller as if it was an EQ. This will insert the controller between the mixer and the amplifier.

Hi. I need a user manual for my Studiomaster


Hiya Pete, Unfortunately ever since they "restructured" anything prior for service is a huge issue with them and especially manuals. It is difficult to even get on the pay sites. You try request it at www.safemanuals.com but i doubt it. If it's something specific that you are needing, i might be able to help?

Bose 802 C series II to Yamaha rxv 459 Amp


Tech data sheet with diagrams:

In a nutshell, the controller would go between a preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You can't use Bose 901 or 802 EQ in a multichannel setup without separate amps for the Bose speakers.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.

In a vanilla stereo configuration you would just put the controller/EQ into a Tape Monitor loop but multichannel sound and digital sources won't work that way.

You should be able to draw off the (assumed) Front L&R channel preamp signal from the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio Out (REC) jacks (*). Run that to the Preamp In (or whatever it's labeled on the Bose EQ/Controller). DO NOT run a return RCA pair back to the Receiver as Bose-processed signals will not play well with non-Bose speakers. (*) Run the Output of the Bose EQ/Controller to a powerful separate amp for the Bose 802/901's. I use two channels on a Carver multichannel AV-406 amp but a stand-alone Carver MT-200T also works well. A good clean 100 watts/channel should suffice at home.

* If possible, choose the recorder loop you are NOT using for something else. If you're using the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio OUT for a recording device just get some RCA splitters to share the Stereo signal between the Bose and the device at the same time. However, once you select monitoring of that recorder two things will likely happen - 1) you'll lose the Bose and anything digital in the receiver will be disabled.

It's the nature of the digital beast that analog monitoring gets in the way of DSP.

Of course, if anyone who reads this has a receiver with individual analog Audio Outputs for the various 5.1 channels (as I do), the solution would be to draw off the Front L&R channels to the Bose EQ and downstream amplifier and the rest would be the same but without Recorder Loop limitations.
