Does my 07 Trailblazer have a factory amp? I've heard only the ones with bose do. Mine doesn't have a Bose. I was told it is underneath the front center console. Is this true?

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.

SOURCE: Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem

AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

Yes, there should be no issues using your Bose speakers with your Sony receiver. Sony has a "hookup guide" to help here -

Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

Reconnecting/retiring Bose speaker cones. Inside speaker I have four coloured wires....Red,Black, Green & Orange....which connectors do they attach to on the speaker cone?


Since you posted this in cars and trucks I assume this is a bose car system. Most bose auto systems have the amp physically attached to the individual speakers. This means each speaker needs the following wires +12v, 12v ground, + signal and - signal. It also means that the head unit cannot directly drive a non bose speaker. If you are replacing the speakers and bose radio the best thing to do is to run new speaker wires. You can reuse the factory ones if you can identify which ones are what...and that may be a pain. If the bose amps are ok and you want to replace the speaker you would need to leave them connected and wire the new speaker to the wires on the bose speaker that come from the bose amp. Depending on the specific bose system there may be an actual wire that runs to the speaker from the amp but on others the amp is directly connected to the voice coil leads of the bose speaker.

Hi Donna,

Please do be frustated.

Your lovely Bose has problem with its mechanism that cause load / unload totally out of order. If you hear some noise while you turn on the bose or when you hit some buttons, it is telling us the motor still work. Now we need to check the broken gears ( or other mechanism linkage).
If you able assemble this Bose, go ahead to find and fix it mehanism ( you may need some parts replacement.

Note : Be carefully with its laser lens while power on ( avoid direct contact to your eyes).

Best luck,

Jay

I have recently aquired bose 520b acoutimass panray base module. can this be connected and work with my 2 pairs of bose 901's.i use pioneer SPEC 1 & SPEC 4{ power amp/pre amp}


Don't you mean "502B"?

Specs:

http://pro.bose.com/ProController?url=/pro/products/panaray/panaray502b.jsp

http://pro.bose.com/pdf/pro/manuals/panaray_502_b/ig_panaray_502b.pdf

Why do they call the SPEC-1 a PREamp when it seems to be an INTEGRATED AMP with speaker outputs and all?

http://sportsbil.com/stereo/spec/

I'm going to assume one of the numbered, presumably volume-controlled outputs (1,2) goes to the 901 Active Equalizer and on to the SPEC-4.

The OTHER numbered output could feed the missing Panaray Digital Controller and then, presumably, another amp but like many a 901 owner I've heard of, you COULD skip that part for the 502b and hook them to the unmodifed amps available in the SPEC-1 and see how it works out.

Hi There, I have a Marantz SR7005 Receiver and Bose 901 Series VI speakers with the Bose equalizer. I'm struggling to figure out the best way to connect the Bose equalizer/speakers to the SR7005. ...


It sounds like you've read one of my many posts on 901 deployment in the AV world.

Functionally, what is the difference between one amp with 'x' channels or 'x' mono amps? Nothing. Pre-outs don't know or care what else an external amp does.

According to this link http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/products/new/642968.html those amps are 2- and 5-channel, respectively.

There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.

I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.

The MM7025 would work for you.

Quite suddenly it doesn't play. The ipod registers that it's charging, and I've checked the remote control on another Bose system I have and it seems to be ok.


I just had the same problem with mine - turns out the Bose docking stations are comlete and utter **** and if yours keeps working you're one of the lucky few. Mine only had sparodic use over a 3 month period and it stopped producing sound the other day. I took it to a repair shop and they've seen a lot of them with the same problem. The solution - dump it in the bin and get a logitec set of speakers & you'll have better sound. This was proven by attaching the iPod to each system.

Pioneer vsx 1020 K receiver. I connected the bose 901 eq to the tape in and tape out but it doesn.t seem to be compatible.


It would be compatible if you ONLY listened to stereo ANALOG sources on ONLY Bose 901's. Engaging any device in a tape loop automatically disconnects digital sources. Bose Active EQ is not intended for anything BUT Bose 901's. The sub could be destroyed by it.

Lacking appropriate Front Left and Right volume-controllable pre-outs on the 1020k, you can't use the 901's for multichannel or digital source material unless you accept a severe compromise and get a separate amp for the 901's borrow mixed-down stereo from the Pioneer's Tape Out, run it through the Active EQ to the new amp and manually manage the external amp's volume.

You need Front Pre-outs.

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.
