Basically here are the connections you have to do:

In case you don't have tape recorder forget the "box" named tape recorder. Your RX-V992 is the box named receiver or preamplifier. You have to connect with RCA - RCA cables the tape out from the RV-X992 to Bose input, and the Bose output to tape in at RV-X992. With the setup connected like this whenever you choose from the RV-X "tape monitor" you will hear the sound equalized from Bose; if you disable the "tape monitor" switch you will hear without any equalization.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs".

How to connect bose 901 equalizer to yamaha rx-a1000


Short answer from personal experience.

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.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

My problem is conect bose 901v to reciver yahama rx-v657


If you cruise around fixya solutions you will find a number of MY postings for many different receivers.

The difficulty you face is that the RX-V657 lacks the necessary Pre-Outs to feed the Bose 901 Active Equalizer which would feed the necessary dedicated amplifier you will need to route Front Channel programming to the 901's and ONLY the 901's without affecting anything else that flows through the RX.

I have 901's in my multichannel rig alongside 301's and a subwoofer. I know what I'm talking about.

I have a yamaha 797 receiver and bose 901 VI to run my ps3 to my receiver it has no hdmi or optic


The manual for the 901's is here.

http://www.bose.com/controller?url=/shop_online/speakers/stereo_speakers/901_speakers/index.jsp

For the purpose of this discussion the 901 active equalizer is the same as any Tape deck or audio processor. You could place the 901 Active Equalizer in the VCR or MD/Tape loops; or remove the Pre Out / Main In jumpers and place it there but that would you could never use headphones as they wouldn't sound right with 901 active equalization. See page 10 and 11.

The PS3 is just in audio device for this topic. Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here:


http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2


and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

I assume you've placed the Bose Active EQ in where the Pre-Out >> Main In jumpers were. Do you have the return from the Bose Active EQ going back into the Main In so it can continue to the Sub Output.

Or do you have the Bose EQ Tape Switch activated incorrectly?

How do I connect the Bose Equalizer (for Bose 901 Series VI speakers) to a Yamaha RX-V850 RS? (not as a home theater) Thanks


If you get a second amp for the 901's you can have your cake and eat it in front of the TV too.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-RX-V850-Receivers-manual/id/320bh027/t/2/

Two solutions:

ONE: dedicated 901-RX-V850 stereo-analog-audio only:

If you want to have the Yamaha also support non-901's as the second set of Front Speakers, put the Active Eq in one of the three selectable Tape Loops. That way you can dial the 901 EQ out of the equation and select the 'normal' speakers for your Dolby Surround video experience.

Now imagine this:

TWO: 901's for the Front on a 100wpc stereo amp, your RX-V850 or a nice digital AVR driving center and rear, maybe 'normal' fronts, too

Get a nice 100wpc amp with its own volume control on eBay and slave it off the Yam. Remove the Front Pre-Main jumpers and place RCA Y-splitters in there so the pre-main connection out is maintained but shared with the Active EQ, which is in series with the 901's dedicated amp. Use the new amp's volume to match the 901's to everything else and you just have to turn it on or off to enjoy the 901's along with or instead of the 'normal' front speakers. You could even just disable them at the Yam.

Now for some boilerplate I created to get your creative juices flowing ij case you have a digital AVR in mind for the future:

Having a 901-based multichannel setup myself, I would highly recommend getting the Full Monte for video listening (below)...

In that case a separate stereo amp for the 901's would work. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.

Then set the new amp's volume control (if it has one, mine doesn't) to something HIGH and run through your speaker setup routines on the Yamaha. After levels and distances are set the Yam will be the boss of the 901's. I recommend sharing or directing any LFE with them. With 901's don't even need subwoofers but they don't hurt.

I've done this in my own setup once. Turn the 901's around so the rear faces point into the listening area. Crank up Master and Commander and when the waves are crashing or cannon are firing you WILL FEEL A BREEZE from them. Now THAT is multi-media!

I have a Yamaha RX-V992 receiver and I would like to install a Bose 901 active equalizer Where will I connect this to my receiver? Thanks, Mark


The use of 901's in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor.

That is because if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Assuming you want the 901's as part of your multichannel sound, you need to get a dedciated power amp just for the 901's and you don't need to use a Tape Monitor loop.

You can draw the Front Left and Right signals out of the Main Out connectors, go into the Active EQ's Amplifier IN Connections; then Out of the EQ's Amplifier OUT Connection to a separate amp and attach the 901's to that amp. This way you won't introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.

Run through the speaker level settings with the new amp at a suitable volume setting (if it has a volume knob; many don't). Then leavethe amp volume control alone.

The AV Receiver can still drive the Center, Surrounds and the Sub(s) as it is designed and control the volume on everything.

This is roughly how I do it.

Want to use Yamaha rx-797 reciever with bose 901 and bose 301. Yamaha says tape monitor kills digital input signals. Also sya digital inputs are the optical jacks, RCA inputs are analog, but 797 does not...


I don't know why the comment from Yamaha about Tape Monitor killing digital inputs is relevant.

According to the manal I downloaded, THIS stereo receiver doesn't have digital inputs.

As to using 901's and 301's...

You will need a separate Power Amp for either the 901's or the 301's. Sorry, but you can't share the amp with the Active-Equalized signal and non-901's.

I use 901's and 301's in MY 7.1 rig with a separate amp for the 901 and NOT using a Tape Monitor, but a preamp out feed for the front channels.

Bose 901 equalizer


Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.
