How can i hook-up a 901 series vi equalizer to a str-de897?


I own 901's(since new) with the active equalizer powered with a non-Sony surround sound receiver.

Basically, you use the MD/Tape in/out jacks to route the signal to the Bose active equalizer. Switch the Tape Monitor switch if no sound is heard.

Here are some references.
https://docs.sony.com/release/STRDE897.pdf http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/901_guide.pdf

Connect equalizer cables (4 total) to the MD/TAPE section of your receiver. OUT from the receiver to the equalizer IN and Out from the equalizer to IN on the receiver.

One issue with the equalizer running through the MD/Tape jacks is that it may affect any other speakers hooked up to your system.

I have a sony str-se491 reciever and am trying to hook up a 901series 5 equilizer the reciever has surround sound but no amp

You can't activate any Tape Loop on an AVR and still have multichannel sound. Tape Loops are 2-channel analog.

You want the 901's to be your Main Front speakers, right? The news is not good.


There will be some limitations because you can't extract a 'processed' Front L-R from this receiver. The following will give you good stereo and Front L-R from the 901's but it won't allow central volume control or send them any of the DSP effects you may select. Sorry. If it had a Front L-R Pre-Out you'd be good to go for all functions and listening modes.


You'll need a separate stereo amplifier WITH ITS OWN VOLUME CONTROL for the 901's to accommodate the need for the Active EQ. Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. I'm using only 100W for mine and it has plenty of steam for the 901's.


With this receiver we have to cheat to get the Front L-R signal out to the 901's (but it's unprocessed and at a steady MAXIMUM volume level)...


For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the MD/Tape Audio Out L-R OUT jacks (*) to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp.

How do I hook up my Bose 901s to my Sony Receiver Model STR-DE545?


look at your speaker wire there should be some marking the distinguishes each wire. You need to get this right make sure the negative or black color from the speaker is connected to a negative or black of the receiver. ditto for the positive (red). look on the back of the receiver you should see where the speakers get connected left, right.

Connecting the 901 series VI equalizer


hello

please make sure your receiver has a tape monitor switch on the front panel or pre-in/out sockets at the rear. only then all sources will play thru the bose equalizer. also remember if you need a 5.1 or greater setup, you will need 2 amps/receivers.

hope this helps
