HOW CAN I CONECT THE BOSE TO MY YAMAHA AMP THE ONLY WAY TO CONECT THE BOSE IS TO BANANA INPUTS ON MY AMP AND THEY ARE FRONT SPEAKERS BUT THE AMP HAS A SUB OUTPUT


To enable the full potential of a SUB for Yamaha DSP A5 ,

you need to have

a separate amplifier for your Bose Acoustimass System.


The SUB out should be connected to an active subwoofer.

each speaker in your car runs the wiring thru an amp. So each spkear has its own amp for the bose system. You can not hook up a none bose radio If you do you will need to run new wires and replace all the speakers. Sorry.

How can i bypass the stock amp in a 2000 pontiac grand prix with the bose speaker system in it with out taking the bose speaker's out?


you can't. the bose system is just that, a system. you need all the pieces for it to work. the head unit doesn't have any power and you need the amp to drive the speakers. also, bose is a proprietary system. only bose parts will work for it. so you can't buy any amp off the shelf and swap it out. if the amp is bad you need to buy a replacement bose amp or replace everything with a new head unit and speakers.

I have a sony explod an want to hook up the sub that came stock in my truck ( 04 chevy ss) its a bose sub. an dont want to run a amp, can it be done and how?


You can do it, but you'll need to use one of the outputs from the stereo, i.e. right rear/left rear. Disconnect the exsisting wiring to the sub. You'll need to run the two output wires from the stereo straight to the sub.

Gotta 07 Denali and in the past when I put my system in any of my vehicles, I just throw my line converter on the rear speakers and all is good. My question is can you still do that with the factory Bose...


Hello russet327,

There should be no difference in the signal on the speakers themselves. It's simply an AC sine wave, varying in amplitude and frequency.

There might be a phase difference that could affect the sound of your subs, but most amps will allow you to adjust or at least select the proper phase. I'd recommend wiring the LOC the same as you have always done it. "Grabbing" a signal before it gets to the factory amp could be even more problematic because the signal will most likely be at too low of a level for your LOC, the wiring may be shielded, and the impedance will be an input impedance in the range of 20-25K ohms instead of the 4 ohms that the LOC is expecting.

Hope this helps.

Whining noise @ acceleration?


You have a bad ground somewhere. You also may nneed to replace your spark plug wires. The deck is getting interference from the engine due to a grounding problem.

Best of luck

Bose Lifestyle 50 - connection to a non-bose amplifier


The 2 system are completely different your is low level input and its is having only 2 input L and R when those signal they get inside your sub it process through an DSP ( Digital Signal Processor ) and become 5 output to yours satellite cube speakers
The AM6 or 10 are high level input connected direct to any output of any AMP from those signal they convert down to low frequency for sub woofer
