Question about Bose Acoustimass 10 III System
Have this Bose system connected to my Yamaha RX-V465 A/V receiver and get no output from the subwoofer. Also why do I need the 5 surround speakers connected to the input on the accoustimass subwoofer then connected (via output from subwoofer) to the speaker jacks on the receiver. Why not bypass the subwoofer and connect the 5 surround speakers directly to the receiver? Looking for best way to connect these components. Don't get good results from the subwoofer at all.
If you have it literally conencted the way you say not much good will happen.

• You may hide the Acoustimass module behind or under furniture, but do not block the
opening. Be sure there is at least 2 inches (5 cm) between the opening and any surface.
• If the opening faces the wall it increases the bass; if it faces away it decreases the bass.
For the most bass response, place the opening 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) from a wall or
• Stand the Acoustimass module vertically or horizontally (Figure 6). To stand it on the
cable connection end, remove the cover by gently pulling it away
Move the sub closer to a wall or corner to increase the bass.
This is a SYSTEM and as such is not designed to be pieced out or separated. I don't recommend that you try it that way. I doubt it will improve the sound.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the respond. Very good info - will try as you have suggested."
Came here looking for the solution to just this problem and while fiddling realised I had the polarity between the amp the the bass module reversed by mistake. Sounds simple but MAKE SURE positive is going to positve etc. Hope this helps
