You may connect an additional amplifier to the Rec Out or Line Out from your existing receiver.
Please note the Bose 901 equalizer can be used to connect to one amplifier only.
Do let me know if you have any further questions.

This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.
Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.

Tech data sheet with diagrams:
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.

The other question is are you using a standard bose input or another component to feed the amp? If you can vary the input to a lower level that may solve the problem. More likely though the unit has a internal component such as a capacitor or a IC that is no longer working. Have the unit serviced at bose or a trusted local repairman. Good luck. Dan
