Question about Bose 141 Main / Stereo Speaker

1 Answer

I bought Bose 141 speakers on ebay and tried to connect them to my old Sony color rear video projector TV, I was told I needed to by a amp/receiver to get them to work. I bought a cheap receiver at Radio Shack and connected under AUX and now the problem is that When we watch TV the speakers work but when we try and use the Xbox or DVD they don't work. What are we doing wrong?

I just bought a new Samsung TV. I cannot get the TV audio to come through the Bose speakers using RCA (red and white connectors) cables. What can I do?


Since you do not specify which Bose speakers you have, I will assume they are not self-powered but require an amp. The RCA connectors are what's known as "line level" meaning they are meant to drive an amp or receiver but NOT a speaker.
IF the speakers are self-powered, then you need to assure that you are connecting to the LINE OUT of the TV (rather than some inputs).

Connect Bose 901 VI EQ to a Harmon Kardon AVR 247 Amp


Similar problem...I came up with a solution with help from Onyko. For my receiver, at least, the bottom line was that the output from the equalizer MUST go to 'Receiver, Tape In'! Since that is the ONLY input source from the equalizer, you must combine elsewhere. Part of my setup included the Radio Shack Audio/Video Selector box which costs $21.99...you might not need it, but in my case, I couldn't plug all components into the back of the receiver and have them go through the equalizer.

Since I have a satellite receiver, DVD player and TV, that I want to route through the equalizer, here is the way mine is set up and working:

Satellite receiver and DVD player out to Radio Shack audio/video selector

Audio/video selector out to VCR in.

VCR video directly to TV

VCR audio red/white (audio) out to equalizer

Equalizer out to Receiver Tape IN (Receiver Out not used)

Hope this (or a variation of it) helps.

Hi lechap,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008 as per his last post Feb 13.....

If I figure your concerns right, they are:
1. You have an iPod on an Onkyo IPod dock that you want to connect to an Onkyo receiver TX-302;
2. You have an Onkyo receiver TX-302 that you want to power a set of Bose Cinemate speakers;
3. the connectors on some do not fit or are not the same;
4. you want to know what goes to where.

If I may suggest:
a. connect the L/R Audio Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the L/R Audio IN of VIDEO 1 using a pair of RCA to RCA cable. Connect the S Video Out of the Onkyo IPod dock to the Video IN of VIDEO 1 using an S Video to RCA Video cable. Thereafter if you want to watch a movie or play music from your iPod, you need to choose Video 1 in the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You can of course choose any other VIDEO 1~3;572fcdc.jpg34ab5d3.jpg

b. all other source/devices may be connected similarly using the same scheme on any of the free VIDEO / AUDIO inputs
c. of course the MONITOR OUT goes to your TV or projector.

With respect to the Bose Cinemate, it would not be technically correct to connect the Bose Cinemate speakers straight to the speaker out of the Onkyo receiver TX-302. You need to install another set of speakers to the speaker outs of the Onkyo receiver. The Bose Cinamate system's TV AUDIO could be connected to the TAPE OUT (or the AUDIO L/R OUT of VIDEO 1)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try this:
Go into the menu settings by pressing "Receiver" --> "6-Video" --> "HDMI Audio" select "Amp," not "Amp+TV"
Yeah, it makes total sense to have a very important audio setting in the video menu.
