If you look in the manual at the "hookups" page 1, connect the controller as if it was an EQ. This will insert the controller between the mixer and the amplifier.

Hi. I would like to connect a Bose controller between a pair of Bose 802 speakers and a Studiomaster Powerhouse 300 MIXER/AMP. The diagram on the top of the controller shows the amplifier connected just...

In a nutshell, the controller would go between any preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You really don't have much choice in the matter. The 802's and their controller are part of an inseperable system.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.


I don't have any data on your mixer/amp but if you can't insert the conroller logically between the mixer and its amps then you'll have to get separate dedicated amplification for the 802's, with the controller between the mixer and that amp.

In a nutshell, the controller would go between a preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You can't use Bose 901 or 802 EQ in a multichannel setup without separate amps for the Bose speakers.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.

In a vanilla stereo configuration you would just put the controller/EQ into a Tape Monitor loop but multichannel sound and digital sources won't work that way.

You should be able to draw off the (assumed) Front L&R channel preamp signal from the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio Out (REC) jacks (*). Run that to the Preamp In (or whatever it's labeled on the Bose EQ/Controller). DO NOT run a return RCA pair back to the Receiver as Bose-processed signals will not play well with non-Bose speakers. (*) Run the Output of the Bose EQ/Controller to a powerful separate amp for the Bose 802/901's. I use two channels on a Carver multichannel AV-406 amp but a stand-alone Carver MT-200T also works well. A good clean 100 watts/channel should suffice at home.

* If possible, choose the recorder loop you are NOT using for something else. If you're using the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio OUT for a recording device just get some RCA splitters to share the Stereo signal between the Bose and the device at the same time. However, once you select monitoring of that recorder two things will likely happen - 1) you'll lose the Bose and anything digital in the receiver will be disabled.

It's the nature of the digital beast that analog monitoring gets in the way of DSP.

Of course, if anyone who reads this has a receiver with individual analog Audio Outputs for the various 5.1 channels (as I do), the solution would be to draw off the Front L&R channels to the Bose EQ and downstream amplifier and the rest would be the same but without Recorder Loop limitations.

I' ve just sold 2 pairs of 800's. The buyer(who once owned a music business) used an 802 controller to test them. He said that any bose eq would do the job with no problems.
