Sansui 8900 zdb to connect to pioneer rg2 dynamic processer then to bose 901 active equallizer. what is the proper method to connect these?


Referring to the picture and remembering that ONLY 901's can run off of any particular amplifier.

http://vintageelectronics.betamaxcollectors.com/sansuistereoreceivermodel8900zdb.html

I can't make out the label for tape copying. You want the 901 EQ to be the "TO" when 'copy' is selected. That way it's EQ will not affect your taping to the upstream deck or processor. Or in your case, you want the RG-1 to proceess the audio first, not after the 901 EQ changes it.

http://www.classicaudio.com/forsale/pio/RG1.html

In to Outs. Both the RG-1 and the 901 Active EQ have facilities for attaching other processors or tape deck(s) within their tape loops. In a pinch you could daisy-chain the RG-1 in front of the Bose 901 EQ on a single tape loop to free up the other one.

Go to Bose.com for the manual and specific pictures of the hook-up.

If your system is equipped with a tape monitor loop, you can switch the EQ out of the circuit by disengaging the tape monitor switch. If the EQ is connected to the pre-out / main-in jumper, you would have to defeat the EQ before you hook up a conventional speaker. I don't believe the EQ has a defeat switch - you'd have to rig a bypass.

Once defeated, if you have a system equipped with a Speaker A / Speaker B selector, the smaller speakers could hook up to the second system. If that's not possible, speaker switches are available for reasonable money. It is very important, though, that the 901 EQ i defeated when using conventional loudspeakers.

I want to connect a pair of Bose 901 speakers to the VSX and use them as my front speakers powered by a separate amplifier but can't find an appropriate pre-out from the VSX.......what analog VSX output...


It doesn't really have one. The DVR-Out (or any other available Line-Out) COULD provide a mixed-down analog stereo program but it won't be volume controllable from the VSX and it won't be Front-Channel specific. Sorry.

You would then connect the EQ between the chosen Line Out and the amp input. If you had a Pre-Our you would just run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun. With a Line Out feed you will have to ride herd on the 901 volume via its dedicated amp controls. Bummer. My older VSX-36TX allows me to have the right setup.

I have a Bose 901 Series VI speaker system & have recently purchased a Pioneer VSX-1020-K AV Receiver. How do I connect the 901's EQ to this amp. I believe the only option is the CDR/TAPE IN/OUT...


This receiver has no pre-amp outs to drive the required separate amp the 901's need for you to continue to have multichannel digital audio. The reason: activation of a tape loop disables digital inputs. But they DID give you Front Height. Oh boy.

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.

I have a pair of bose 901, v1 I have a old pioneer vsx 5300


Not knowing anything about your specific amplifier or if it correctly configured for the 901 Active Eq, the first thing I would say is these are designed for analog stereo sources ONLY and a multichannel digital-capable receiver will NOT work properly with any devcie in a Tape loop.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.


Connect the Active EQ between the pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

How to install bose 901 eq to my pioneer vsx-1019ah-k


This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers..

Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them. On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

Patch the Active EQ directly off that point (Amp In from the receiver, Amp Out to the new amp). Run all the speaker level settings on the AV Receiver and rock on.

Bose 901 connection to Pioneer VSX-917v Receiver


any pre-out should work. i believe the bose have a rca jack connector for attaching to the receiver. look at the new receiver connection diagram. any output that is rca designed for use by a recording device will send a signal that the 901's can see.
always check the manual on both before connecting for any precautions.
good luck
