The arrays from this system are only designed to run with the Bose Acoustimass / subwoofer, which in turn will only work with the Bose DVD player. If you use them directly to an amplifier, they'll sound poor / wierd and you probably blow the drivers. You might even damage your amp.

Each speaker has 2 drivers firing in slightly different directions. The idea is (when its used with the 321 system), the inward speakers give a mix of front and centre, the outer drivers give a mix of front and rear. A normal amp won't do this....

Bose 321 power woofer buzzes but produces no audio sound

I assume the other two speakers are working fine. Contact Bose and ask them. Could be a simple fuse. Sounds like a fried speaker driver, but do this first. Take the back off and check the power amplifier for a blown fuse. If none, disconnect the power amplifier. Reconnect the speaker cabinet w/o the built-in power amplifier to a known good amplifier to see if the speaker works. If it works then you know its the built-in power amp that's fried. Contact Bose for a replacement or better yet buy a another one with a higher RMS watt capacity. Wattage ratings in other than RMS are worthless. JBL and Cerwin Vega produce high wattage units. You need to keep the volume lower to avoid the problem in the future.

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.

Bose PS 3-2-1 II speaker exspansion

Unfortunately this is impossible on the 321 series II systems. There also is no audio output on the media center to send to another amp either. As you may know, the 2 speakers are actually 4 speakers. Each small speaker array has 2 drivers. The 2 on the outside will project rear-channel audio to the sides, so placement of these speakers is important. Honestly, adding speakers would not make this sound very good. If the sound isn't too great as is, make sure you're using digital audio cables (optical or coax) from any external sources like a cable box or Blu-ray player. (if you don't see a Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 read-out on front of the media center, you'll know it's not digital. DVDs the exception)

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

I'd like to add two speakers to my older 4 pin Bose 321 system. Can I buy adaptors to split off the two small front speakers to run two additional speakers to the rear of the room?

is there any connection for 2 more speakers?
if not there is no real way to make it surround sound . however you can double up the speakers with the front ones.
but you loose sound quality and it wont be true surround sound. but you can give it a try
