Question about Music
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.

SOURCE: No sound
Your power amp should be connected to MAIN OUT left and right. NOT the MAIN "in".
The CD is connected correctely as you described. Make sure the CD has a line level output to match the input expected by the mixer.
Note:Walkman style CD players require a special cable to go between 1/8 inch stereo to dual RCA plugs.
You have to advance the MAIN fader.
You should be using TRS interconnect cables from the mixer to your amps OR using XLR cables.

Thought I answered this. Using balanced TRS cables, connect the powered speakers to the Main L and R 1/4 inch jacks on the top of the unit.

use the xlr (3 prong) main left and right outputs of the board. get xlr to 1/4 inch cables. one end will be 3 prong, to plug into the mixer, then the other end will be a mono 1/4 inch plug, like a big headphone plug. Then you have to get a dual mono 1/4 inch to stereo 1/8 inch adapter and plug it noto the line in. if there is no lone in, but a microphone jack instead, you will get a mono signal instead of a stereo signal. in this case, just use 1 channel of the mixer, instead of both of the stereo outs, and use a single mono 1/4 inch to mono 1/8 inch adapter.
the xlr to 1/4 inch cables can be purchased at a music store. the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapters will probably need to be purchased at radio shack.

Should be an Aux 1 or 2 output jack on the right side of the mixer. You can come out of the 1 or 2 OUTPUT jack to the input on your processor, and then from the output of the processor to Effects return or to a channel input. By going to a channel input you can then blend the processor's signal with a slider into the sound system with the other channels, while adding tone if needed. By going back into the Effects return, you just blend it overall by adjusting the Effects return knob.
To feed the channels through the processor, turn the AUX 1 or 2 knob up on each individual channel you want to go through the processor. Make sure the AUX 1 (or 2 if you are using that) MASTER knob is turned up on the right side of the console, otherwise nothing will go to the processor. You should see the processors' input light showing signal, if not check your connections. Good luck
