Question about AudioSource VS-ONE Speaker
Purchased used but has no manual for this speaker. Need manual or information and specs for connecting and using this powered speaker. No factory assistant forthcoming and any would be appreciated.
Audio Source i think is made by Clarion and is a good product.Give them a try and see if they can help first. Thank you Jay

"CAUTION: Make no modifications to the system or accessories. Unauthorized alterations may compromise safety, regulatory compliance, and system performance."
That warning is not in the manual to just protect their market share. Even if you succeed in making the desired electrical connections the results may be less than stellar.
I'm not saying this IS the case but here is some Food for thought.
Bose's main claim to fame, the 901, was always based on achieving flat audio response from full-range speakers (NO WOOFERS or TWEETERS in the case of 901's) through the use of large amounts of prioprietary equalization applied to the audio signal. Another evolutionary step way in Bose amp/speaker systems was to deviate, sometimes drastically, from the 8-ohm speaker driver standard and design the mated amp to work with the selected load. THAT is just two reasons why no specs are published for the sub-parts of any BOSE SYSTEM. It's a system.
In the mix n match world of COMPONENTS specs are published so one can choose a given speaker for use with a given amp and expect electrical compatibility, frequency response and power handling.
Except for standalone passive speaker systems, mixing and matching Bose speakers with third party electronics (or vice versa) is discouraged as being potentially dangerous and at the least sonically unwise. For example, if you've ever heard how a Bose 901 Active Equalizer sounds with non-Bose 901 speakers you'd understand.
Maybe someone else can fill in the pin-outs of the cable and chime in on whether or not Brand X speakers will work with the Cinemate amps. Not knowing what other brand/model you're contemplating, it would be impossible for anyone to offer a qualified judment on that score.
