Question about Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

Cd quality The quality of  the cd music  on my Bose is consistently inferior to the quality of the music on the FM band. It seems to lack upper frequency response.It lacks the presence and fullness of the FM music. I bought this system perhaps five or six years ago. I am wondering if there is some sort of maintenance I should be doing to improve the reproduction...something similar to a head cleaner I use on my camcorder?

My portable Bose speaker has just started to buzz a few times in quick succession, then stop for half an hour or so (whilst not in use). I have unplugged it from mains power and disconnected the iPod but...


This may be caused by external interference.

If you have an AM radio available, turn it on and tune to mid-band (1000kHz for example) and leave it on.

If there is a strong source of static (table saw or other motor-driven AC device) it will show up at the same time as your buzz.

If it does not, try the FM band (~100MHz) and wait for the buzz to occur.

One cannot predict more exactly the nature of the interference.

I have a Bose lifestyle 50 (from 1999) and just purchased a new Sony Bravia TV. How can I connect the TV to the Bose sound system?


hello!
unless your "Bose" has an optical or coaxial digital stream audio inputs, there is no way of connecting TVs audio output to your receiver(home theater). to by pass the TV itself, connect analog audio output off your cable or set top boxes. those, still have analog audio out. If you need to connect more audio sources, use TV as a video monitor, connect all the audio outs to your "Bose", instead. In case of terrestrial broadcast, you may need to obtain digital converter box and use it simultaneously with TV to get your audio out. Also, if you lack DVR, that box will allow you to use regular DVD recorder. It's not going to be HD quality, but better, than nothing. You can't feed HD video signal out of TV set.Only analog.
good luck,
Alex.

Pioneer vsx 1020 K receiver. I connected the bose 901 eq to the tape in and tape out but it doesn.t seem to be compatible.


It would be compatible if you ONLY listened to stereo ANALOG sources on ONLY Bose 901's. Engaging any device in a tape loop automatically disconnects digital sources. Bose Active EQ is not intended for anything BUT Bose 901's. The sub could be destroyed by it.

Lacking appropriate Front Left and Right volume-controllable pre-outs on the 1020k, you can't use the 901's for multichannel or digital source material unless you accept a severe compromise and get a separate amp for the 901's borrow mixed-down stereo from the Pioneer's Tape Out, run it through the Active EQ to the new amp and manually manage the external amp's volume.

You need Front Pre-outs.

No bass response


Seems there are 2 underlying problems-

no am/fm? are antennas connected? is there static active on any station tuned to?

in terms of low bass response- double check settings both in the receiver and also on the sub itself if any available.

CD DISC IS NOT SPINNING


Check the cd drawer sometimes the position switch is not detecting the drawer completely closed.

It could be an obstructing object stuck behind the drawer door who prevent the drawer to close completely.

Is it possible to connect turntables and mixer to Acoustic Wave Music System 2 through the Aux, and simultaneously play a backing CD so that both can be heard? Eg, scratching vinyl over a hip hop beats CD.


Yes.

A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most setero receivers and preamps have Phono connection and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Many mixers out there have a Phono section or two, too, so your mixer will determine what you can do with vinyl.

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment.

The mixer can send its output to the Aux input on the AWMS-2.

If you have only the internal CD player I don't think you will be able to do what you want. Reason: the AWMS-2 doesn't have a traditional Tape Monitor circuit which would allow its own internal program (including AM/FM) to exit to your mixer and come back in via the AUX. Selecting AUX disables its output. Thgis is to preevent a potential feedback loop. The AWMS wasn't designed for people who want or can control complexity in their listening.

If you have the external 5-CD changer or another CD source, you would be able to run all that through the mixer prior to its entry into the AWMS-2.

My bose cd player won't take a cd now and play it but the radio works fine. There doesn't seems to be any disc inside. The display says no disc.


It looks like this is a Wave Music System. (Front, slot-loading CD drive? About 4 inches tall?)You could try a basic reset. Just unplug it from power for about 30-40 seconds. When you plug it back in, it should try to 'force-eject' anything that could be stuck inside. Otherwise, try another CD after the reset to see if it pulls it in and it plays. If that doesn't work, you could try flipping it upside down and pressing eject. (a roller could be stuck on something)
Let me know if this helps.

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.
