Question about Bose 901 VI Main / Stereo Speaker
Will the Bose 901 active equalizer connect to modern Home Theater Receivers. Most do not hav e'Tape 2 Out' or room for a pre-amp. What should I do with mu SONY STR-DG 1100 AV Reciever to connect it to a Pair of Bose 901s?

AFAIK, most modern AV receivers DO have tape in/out. I just looked at an image of the back of the Sony STR-DG1100 and it absolutely does have a Tape In/Out. It also has a Video 1 In/Out and you could use just the audio part of that if your Tape is being used by something else. I don't have a Sony so be sure to check the manual to see how to engage the "tape Monitor" so that the Bose EQ is in the loop.

Look for some older higher end Yamaha units on ebay for pre-main couplers. I have a Yamaha rxv3300 that works like a charm for home theatre.

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."
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.
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.
