Perhaps you can specify which Bose amplifier you have. Presumably it drives the 5 speakers. Can you specify which computer you have? Do you have an add-on sound card? Does your computer have a 4 or more channel output? That is a different matter. Do you want the highest possible audio quality?

I'm going to assume the simplest configuration here.

1) There are two likely auxiliary input jacks for the Bose amp. One is a single 1/8" stereo jack. This jack would fit your ear bud headphones. Try this with it turned off. The other option are dual RCA jacks. These have a center opening around a cylinder about the size of a pencil. The center opening is about the size of that ear bud plug, but don't try and put it in there. The cylinder outside will have a metal ring.

2) Determine the output of your computer sound card. It is most likely a 1/8" stereo jack, so try your ear buds with it turned off. Many computers have a headphone jack and then a speaker jack. The speaker jack may be color coded green. You should be able to drive off of either of these but you will want to control the volume on your computer appropriately because the speaker output may drive too strongly for your Bose. Turn the volume up slowly.

So, then you need to go buy a cable. Here are two likely possibilities:

a) 1/8" stereo male to dual RCA male

b) 1/8" stereo male to male

On my klh subwoofer the high speaker output stop working the sub works just fine but when I hook up the other speakers to it they don't play at all. I know if I go and buy a receiver I can bypass it.


The speakers connections have to come from an amplifier with sound coming from it in the first place. Once connected to the unit the bass signal is then extracted from the signal and the rest of the signal sent to the main speakers. The KLH will not power the main speakers on it's own. The unit will only take the two main stereo channels, from an amplifier, the left and right then go to one set of inputs and they then come out of the other two outputs.

Splice Bose speaker to connect to receiver


Each speaker has two 4 Ohm drivers. Each speaker has a connector with 4 pins. From left to right they are + - - +. Say 1 2 3 4 . If you want a 8 Ohm speaker connect 2 and 4 together. Now 1 goes to your amplifier (+) and 3 to your amplifier (-). In yor case join black with blue. Now red goes to the amplifier red and green to the amplifier black.

Hi -

Sony CD player Red / White RCA - > CD input RCAs on the Arcam.

From the Arcam Preamp Output RCA's, go to the Bose "Input". From the Bose "Output", you need RCA splitters to make them into four outputs to run your amplifier connections.clmrt5000_2.jpgclmrt5000_3.jpg

I'm considering buying the 180636 "surround sound bar speaker system." My question is, is this JUST a speaker system, which needs to be connected to a separate amplifier or "home theater...


The bar speaker system needs to be connected to an amplifier. What the bar speaker does is replicate a five speaker home theater system using just an amplifier.

The only thing that will give you a better sound quality is some type of amplifier/speaker set-up, wether you choose to have an amp and two speakers or and amp with five speakers and a subwoofer is up to you.

Bose amplifier does not work with a 6 speaker selector


your wall speakers may not be connected.... disconnect each speaker from the selector box and test with a small AAA battery to see if they are connected by putting the battery between each speaker's wires , you will hear it crackle ,then gradually connect each wall speaker onto the speaker connector box . If the first set does not work i suggest there may be a problem with your speaker selector box . Good luck
