Yes, connect the Active EQ into one of the abundant tape loops and set the receiver to monitor that one constantly. Or place it between the Pre Out and Main In's. What you don't want to do is have the Active EQ in front of any actual tape decks attached to the Luxman as it would affect their audio. Yeah, pre/main is the best place.

    Examine your receiver to be sure it has a tape monitor loop. Receivers with a tape monitor loop will have a button or switch on the front for "Tape Monitor," and have two sets of RCA connections on the back, one labelled "Tape In," and the other "Tape Out."

  • 2

    Take the two cables that are provided with the 901 speakers and insert one end of the first cable into the "Amplifier Input" jacks of the equalizer. Connect the red connector to the R input and the other connector to the L input. Connect the other end of this cable into the "Tape Out" connections on the receiver. Again, hook red to R and the other to L.

  • 3

    Connect the second cable between the "Amplifier Output" jacks of the 901 receiver and the "Tape In" connections on the receiver. Follow the guidelines in Step 2 for R and L connections.

    Plug the 901 equalizer into a 120-volt electrical outlet. Your 901 equalizer is now installed.

    `Which ampliphier is compatible for my Bose 901 series 6 with equilazer.


    Ideally, an amplifier or receiver should have either a "Tape Monitor" selector switch and Tape Input & Tape Output jacks, OR have Preamp Output & Amp Input jacks to enable insertion of the Bose Active equalizer into the circuit before the amplifier stage. Power requirements - according to the 901 Series VI manual:

    "Your 901 speakers are designed to work compatibly with receivers or amplifiers rated from
    10 to 450 watts per channel."

    If you have questions not answered by the manual, you can contact customer service at The Bose Corporation in Framingham, MASS toll free at:

    Hours of operation:
    7 AM - 2 AM ET, 7 days a week

    I hope this helped & good luck!

    I want to hook my bose 901 VI along with EQ to my Luxman R117 Receiver and also run other speakers from the same receiver. Is this possible?


    If you are using the Bose Equalizer to optimize the sound of the 901s by going through either a tape loop or a pre-out/main-in loop, then the only way to do this without also equalizing the sound sent to the second set of speakers is to manufacture a "zone-2" output from the Luxman.
    You'd probably need to split the send from the Luxman's pre-out before the EQ and send it to a second power amplifier for the second pair of speakers (if you want the Luxman's volume knob to control both speaker sets) or from a tape level output (if you wanted independent volume controls for the two speaker sets.
    The whole EQ thing made 901s difficult to use on vintage equipment with only one "zone" audio outputs. Unless you want to use the Bose EQ on the second set, too, you can't do it satisfactorily without adding another stereo amplifier. But, go ahead and try it, you might find that you actually like the odd EQ that the 901s EQ gives to the second pair!
    If it were my decision, I probably would not do it without a second amp, but it's all about what you like, my opinions really don't matter in your house, do they?
    Have fun

    Bose 901 series speakers to Bose 901 Equalizer


    There is no direct connection between the 901's and their Active Equalizer. It is designed to be inserted between the source and the DEDICATED amplifier driving the speakers. Typically, this would be in a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver.

    Tape Rec/Out to EQ In; EQ Out to Tape Play/In on the receiver. If you have a tape deck(s), it(they) would go into the back of the Bose EQ as if it was the receiver and you would use the Tape and 1/2 buttons for selection.

    Or,if you have access to any other point that doesn't use the Tape Monitor, like a Pre Out/Main In jumper set, place the Equalizer there. That way it's always in front of the speakers and doesn't take up the Tape Mon.

    Flip in the Tape Monitor and leave it on or the speakers will not receive the essential ACTIVE Equalization they require for proper frequency response. DO NOT place non-901's onto any amp using the Active EQ.

    Like any speakers, the 901's will attach to the speaker terminals in the conventional manner.

    No. Active Equalization is required for the 901's and not to be used with any non-901 speakers.
