The power amp does need an imput signal ie. tuner, cd , and such to play. You can use the power amp with the other equipment.
Good Luck

You may connect an additional amplifier to the Rec Out or Line Out from your existing receiver.
Please note the Bose 901 equalizer can be used to connect to one amplifier only.

Do let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)

regards
robotek

How do i hook up bose accustimass speaker to my radio?


Acoustimass speakers need to be driven by a Hi-Fi amp/receiver or AV receiver. So the thing that's driving them needs to be an amplifier.

Unless your radio is also an amplifier then the radio and the Bose speakers are not directly compatible. There's no suitable output on the radio that generates the correct signal in sufficient power.

How to connect Mackie Mixer 1402vlz4 to Bose Accoustimass 5 speaker


you need a power amplifier between the mixer and the speakers to actually drive the speakers. You would have to choose which amp to use (the manual, found here: http://www.bose.ca/controller?url=/shop_online/speakers/stereo_speakers/acoustimass_5/index.jsp#manuals suggests between 10-200 WRMS for power), and thus would have to determine the cabling options depending on the amp you choose, but...go from either the MAIN or CONTROL ROOM outputs of the Mackie mixer into the inputs of the power amp. Then go from the outputs of the power amp to the inputs on the Acoustimass bass module, which also runs the Acoustimass satellite speakers.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Which model of amplifier will match the Bose AM 10 series4


There's a pretty decent write up for this speaker system on CNet. The "Speaker System" section calls for an amplifier capable of 10 - 150 watts RMS.

Bose maintains a library on their products as well. You can download FAQs, Manuals and Product Information easily. On the accessories tab, Bose lists an Onkyo receiver for $350 that will work very well with this speaker system. Of course, any quality modern stereo receiver or amplifier with power in this range 10 - 150 watts should provide good results, but better amps will be in the 75 watts and greater range.

I hope this helps - good luck

I have a Lifestyle 35 and want to replace head unit with a 5.1 receiver. The Bose subwoofer model LSPS uses a network type cable connector on the sub side and a male din plug on the head unit side of...


The entire 5.1 amplification system, in the Bose Lifestyle 35, is actually part of the Bose Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. The RJ-45 (network type) connector passes a low-voltage signal from the console to the Acoustimass module. If you were to hack the connection, and plug the speaker outputs of a 5.1 receiver to the RJ-45 socket on the Acoustimass module, you would blow the amplifier.

If you are really itching to replace the Bose Lifestyle 35 console with a regular 5.1 receiver, I strongly suggest you sell your Bose system, and purchase a Bose speaker system, such as the Acoustimass 10 Home Theater Speaker System, which is made for use with a standard 5.1 surround sound receiver.

How do I connect my Acoustimass® 5 Series III Stereo Speaker System to my Onkyo SR506 av receiver?


Well, first of all this speaker system is designed to give you a subwoofer where you do not have a sub-woofer output on your receiver/amp. However, that is not the case with the Onkyo. The way I would set it up (only because of the speakers you have) according to the Acoustimass Manual. You take the left and Right "Speaker" outputs to the Left and Right input on the Acoustimass and the speakers crossover does the rest. The Onkyo is designed to have a powered subwoofer so in this format you would just tell the receiver to turn off the sub channel which would tell the Onkyo to send the low end to LR. That should do it.

Please Help ....i have Bose Acoustimass 10, 5.1 system connected


Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

Best amplifier for bose 901 VI speakers


By all-in-one amplifier that handles the surround I think you mean all-in-one receiver or preamp. Amps are just big dumb muscular power supplies for speakers.

The source control and digital decoding could be handled by a modern AV receiver with multichannel analog outputs for driving separate amps or you could get a digital AV preamplifier/control unit functionally like this Adcom. Prepare for sticker shock.

http://hdtvdreams.com/Adcom-GTP-870HD-7.1-Multi-Channel-Processor/Preamplifier-GTP870HD.aspx

Understand that EACH PAIR of Bose 901's will require its own DEDICATED two channels of amplification AND someplace to jack in its Active Equalizer - between the line level source and the power amp.

Conventional speakers can probably run off the receiver's amplifiers since they don't/can't/must not have the Bose Active EQ in line with them.

Having a single pair of 901's plus a passive subwoofer or two in the same room for accurate 6- or 7.1 surround would require at least four stereo amps or some combination that adds up to 8 channels.

In my own system I have a Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver (with 5 potential channels of amplification for Left, Right, Center, two Surrounds) doing light duty as the control and routing center but ONLY driving the Center (two Kenwood 777's) and Surround speakers (Bose 301's). I have a Carver 5-channel amp pushing the Bose 901 Front speakers (100Wx2), two dbx Subwoofers (110Wx1) and the Bose 301 Rear Surround speakers (60Wx1).

You could probably get by with a powerful 2-, 3- or 4-channel amplifier to push the 901's and subwoofer(s) as I did. It's the cheapest way out if you get a decent AV receiver. Once you set up the levels and delays the receiver does all the thinking and controlling for you.

TX-SV525 Onkyo Receiver


NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! If you have the room for them to run free and loud, keep the 901's in service. Get them a good amplifier because any multichannel receiver can't deal with their special EQ needs and still drive conventional speakers for the other channels properly.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great! Get a receiver that has has 5.1 analog Outputs so you could drive up to 6 external amplifiers if you want to (I drive 4). Then you can draw off the Front L&R to a separate amp for the 901's and the 'other' (lesser) speakers can live on the receiver's native amplifiers.

A separate multi-channel amp for the 901's was my solution. Because I can run each channel independently to an external amp, I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers (DBX DB-SW 15's) and the Rear Surround channel (Bose 301), with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center (Kenwood 777's) and Surround speakers (Bose 301's) from its own amps.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Multi-CH Receiver L&R Audio Out ***) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Any modern AV Receiver with the pre-requisite analog outputs should work. Since you have to buy a power amp for your 901 front channels anyway the receiver need not be a powerhouse. Look for features and lots of connections for digital and analog devices. I lean toward coaxial digital connectors because A) they take standard >> and cheap << audio cables; and B) they can be shared with Y-connectors if you're careful to have only one digital device turned on at a time. Optical SP/DIF is an expensive farce to get into your wallet.

For DVD/Cable Box/Blu-Ray look for multiple HDMI or component connections. Again, length and cable cost made me look at the component connections vs HDMI and I was pleased that I can't see the difference even with HD programming from my cable box. It's all great.
