PUT YOUR OUTDOOR SPEAKERS INTO SURROUND BACK SPEAKER "PORTS"AS YOU CALL THEM GEMMEG THEN GO TO UR SET UP MENU AND SWITCH ON ZONE 2 OR IT MAY BE AS SIMPLE AS A SWITCH ON THE FRONT OF YOUR AMP.IFF YOU STILL HAVE NO SOUND YOU MAY HAVE 2 TURN THE VOLUME UP FOR ZONE 2.ALSO SOME AMP NEED TO HAVE THE SOURCE ; IE WHAT U WANT 2 PLAY INTO ZONE 2 FOR EXAMPLE YOUR CD PLAYER.HOPE THIS HELPS ,IFF NOT GET BACK 2 ME 2 C IFF I CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE.

Well the basic connection of the speakers would be the same as another stereo speaker pair. Wire the left and right speakers to the L/R Front Surround speakers on the Denon.
With the 901's I am assuming that there is an external equalizer supplied by Bose. Typically this EQ is installed in a tape loop on the receiver/amp so that it is ahead of the power amplifier that drives the speakers. This EQ needs to be there to attempt to get reasonable frequency response from a speaker that has only 4" drivers. I'm not sure I see any reasonable way to make the EQ work with the Denon AV receiver. You'd likely be better off using the Bose speakers in a dedicated 2-channel stereo and getting a set of speakers for the AV usage.
jbell302, Check both remote spkers for operation from the A spks output if good, switch B remote spks to A main connect & main A spks to the B remote connection on the Denon spks outputs . Most amp sources do not like different ohm spks types & different cable or spks A-B. lenghts, because this makes up to resistances problems, making the amp to work harder & understanding what is going on. THE AMPS PROTECTION CIRCUIT IS AT ALERT & TRIES TO BALANCE THE RESISTANCE VOLUME. Best move is to try use the same spks. lenght & a higher qauge wire; 12.14.18qa. to better balance the output volume! All matching spks. pairs would help alot as well!
time to reset the microprocessor. See page 87 in manual.
1) switch off the unit using the main unit's power operation (small power button)
2) hold the PURE DIRECT button and DIRECT button at same time and turn the main unit's power operation on.
3) wait for entire display to flash in 1 second intervals
now the speakers need to be set up again but zone 2 will be working. i suspect a power surge causes the microprocesser to be corrupted. i put a power surge protector and have not had problems (lately).
