Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System
Hi Cassie, unless your receiver is a surround reciever, it won't have an actual subwoofer output. The good news is that you can use either a "line out" jack or a "tape out" jack instead, which most receivers do have. These jacks always have the signal, so there are no special settings to remember - simply operate your receiver as usual. Everything comes out of these jacks, not just the bass - but it won't matter since your subwoofer will only reproduce the bass frequencies. The bass information is generally identical in both left and right channels, so either the right or left jack should work fine, and it's okay to leave the other one unconnected. The only bad thing is the line and tape outputs are not affected by the receiver's bass and treble controls, so you'll have to control the bass volume at the subwoofer if it has a control. If you can't control the amount of bass you hear, turn up the volume and reduce the treble which will give the illusion of more bass. I'm assuming you have "powered" subwoofer (has its own built-in amplifier). Good luck!
