Question about Bose Acoustimass 10 III System

2 Answers

Have this Bose system connected to my Yamaha a/v receiver

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.

The speaker OUTPUTs for the Yamaha feed the INPUTS on the Acoustimass Module then the satellites branch out of the Acoustimass Module's OUTPUTs.

Acoustimass module
Bose® recommends putting your Acoustimass module at the same end of the room as the
television monitor. To prevent interference, keep the module at least 2 feet (.6 m) from the
television.
• 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
corner.
• 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.

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

Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV).
Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.

Is a yamaha rx-v465 supposed to recieved both


What connection do you use?
This receiver supports both video and audio over HDMI. It has also other video inputs, but it doesn't have any video processing.
So if you connect your equipment for example to component video in, its video output will be present only on component video out (NOT on the HDMI output nor s-video output).

I have yamaha rx-v465 receiver and yds-11 docking station. how can i get tv{through hdmi 1}to display what's on ipod.i have nano w/video camera{newest one]. is this possible


I think it is not possible, because RX-V465 does not have HDMI-video processing. It can only pass-thru the HDMI video to HDMI-out, but not alter the signal in any way.
If it should support TV output with YDS-11, it will work only via analog video out (s-video / composite / component).

RX-V465 output HDMI 1 will work but HDMI 2-4 won't, also when I hook up Wii via rca to receiver only get sound no picture.


This receiver has only one HDMI output, but 4 HDMI inputs. If some inputs don't work, try connecting the equipment (DVD for example) to HDMI input which works with other equipment....
For the RCA (composite) video input - it won't work, because this receiver don't have any video processing circuit.
So HDMI input video goes to HDMI outout connector.
Composite (RCA) video input goes to Composite outout and no other video output.
S-video input goes only to s-video output.

I need to use my TV as the speakers for my system..what is the setting on the Yamaha RX-V465 to do this?


For what do you need receiver if you don't want to use its speakers?
As far as I know this is only possible for HDMI connections (when you have your DVD player connected to HDMI-in of receiver, and HDMI-out to the TV). Go to Setup menu / Func. setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose there if audio from HDMI should be output on receiver's speakers, or TV speakers, or both.
