How do I connect my bose equalizer to my pioneer amplifier


The manual is at Bose.com.

In any question regarding connections the exact models of all parts in the scenario should be defined.

"Pioneer amplifier" is not unique nor revealing. Integrated amplifer? Power amp? Tape Loops available? Pre-Outs? What's involved as a preamp?

The key thing to know is that any amplifier channels driving 901's must not drive other speakers as the Active EQ severely modifies the Line Level source input. If the EQ (or any sound processor) is used in a Tape Loop on a modern multichannel digital-audio-capable AVR, ONLY 2-channel analog sources will function when the Tape Loop is engaged; and all downstream speakers will be affected by the processing. That's par for the AVR course.

Bose 901 use in multichannel applications (which I have) will require access to Pre-Amp outputs for the chosen channels (likely the Front) and you will need to get a separate amp for the 901's, placing the EQ in series with the chosen amplifier. I currently drive mine with a Carver MT-200T.

How do you hook up the Bose 901 series VI to a Harman Kardon AVR 510 receiver?


Search Fixya for the dozens of times I have answered this type of question. The central theme is you will need a separate power amp for the 901's and use of the Pre-Outs.

How do I turn tape monitoring on my Denon AVR 3803 on/off? I recently purchased a set of Series V Bose 901's and I am having a difficult time figuring out how to activate the equalizer.


Short answer from personal experience.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.

Connect the Active EQ between the pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Oh, but you don't have pre-outs. Bummer. Most AVR's will NOT pass digital sources to analog tape outs. Page 40 of the manual confirms that.

no can do. sorry. You need Pre-Outs to feed an external amp.

I cannot connect my bose 901 series v1 active equalizer to my denon av surround receiver avr-891


Short answer from personal experience.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.

The reason: You can't use the Active EQ (or ANY processor) in a tape Monitor loop with anything but 2-channel stereo material. As soon as you activate the loop you lose digital sources.

Adding to YOUR particular problem is that the Denon doesn't have a volume-controlled pre-out to feed that amp. If you want to deal with controlling the separate amp volume manually you COULD connect the Active EQ between DVR Out and the 901 amp IN but you would have a stereo mixdown instead of true front channel from the speakers.

Bummer.

I have a Harmon Kardon AVR 247 and I want to connect with Bose 901 VI equalizer. No other speakers are connected, just the 901's. Where do I connect the wires from the equalizer to the AVR 247...


I have this exact setup. 901s are my Mains.

The AVR247 has PreOuts on all of the channels.. No jumper to remove either. Just get a power amp or two and place the 901 EQ between the AVR247 and the Power Amplifier.

I have my bose v1 equalizer connected to my 3375 harmon kardon the following way.....equalizer(line output..to receiver tape monitor in) and equalizer (line in....to reciever tape rec output ....i am not...


I bet it would work if you listened to something 2-channel and analog. THAT is the limitation of anything that uses a proccessor (like the 901's) and modern AVR's.

Multichannel AVR's automatically disconnect digital inputs when a tape loop is activated.

Adding to YOUR particular problem is that the 3375 doesn't have a volume-controlled pre-out to feed that amp. If you want to deal with controlling the separate amp volume manually

You COULD place some RCA Y-splitter cables where the Pre/Main jumers are and send a stereo mixdown instead of true front channel to the Active EQ and thence to a separate amp, but it's not true front channel. But you would have local control of the 901 volume after you calibrate them to match whatever other speakers you use.

When did they stop making AVR's with 7.1 pre-outs? My 9-year old Pioneer has them and I have 901's, 301's and a sub going.

I have a Denon AVR 3805 receiver. It does not have a Main Amp in or a pre Amp out in the back. How do I properly hook up the Bose 901 equalizer to this receiver? I use the 901 speakers as surround...


By properly, you must mean WITH the Active EQ.

According to this picture, you're in luck BUT...

(Short answer from personal experience.)

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers. A good 100-wpc amp will do. (I like Carver)

Connect the Active EQ between the Front pre-outs and the amp input. Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

Compatable receiver list for Bose 901 series VI


I contacted the Customer support folks at Bose. Here is what they said: With a stereo receiver, the equalizer is run through the tape monitor section in the back of the receiver. The receiver's tape monitor output, left and right, runs to the amp input section of the equalizer, left and right. Then the amp output section of the equalizer, left and right, runs to the receiver's tape monitor input section. With a surround sound, home theater, type of receiver, the theory is the same, but the connection is through the preamp-out/ main amp-in section of the receiver. Not all receivers have this feature. Most, in fact, do not. Check the back of the receiver. There would be a connection made by two U-shaped clips. The plugs would be pulled out. Then connect from the preamp-out to the equalizer's amp input section; and from the equalizer's amp output section to the main amp-in. This effectively isolates the equalizer so that it is not affecting the other speakers in the system or the receiver's surround processing. Attached is a current list of known 901-home theater compatible receivers:
Note: Specifications subject to change without notice. Bose Corporation is not responsible for any inaccuracies due to manufacturer changes. Inclusion in this list does not indicate an endorsement by Bose Corporation. When in doubt contact the manufacturer of the equipment.

I have the list in a pdf document but do not see a way to attach it.

Denon AVR 2807 with Bose Acoustimass 15


Well,i can tell you are not very focus,cause you posted Denon AVR-2807 with Bose AC 15 problem,but under your details,you put down AVR-5807!
First of all,it is so unfortunate that you are NOT able to gain and experience to true ability in sound for this wonderful receiver when you are using a dual tweeters speakers and expect to have good sound separation as a TWO WAY speakers(a tweeter and a midrange-for true high frequency and mid frequency sound separation.)
Secondly,you have defeated the audio configuration of the Denon AVR-2807,since all your speakers are control BY the Bose subwoofer.
Now,i could show you a way to hook this up,and it doesn't matter how you connect them, they are the "bicycle tires" installed with a "Porche"engine if you know what i mean.
If you want a good recommendation for your "beast",i will more than happy to show you the way!
Cheers,

Is it possible to to have a home theatre with Denon AVR 3600


one option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers.
and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp.
this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq.
will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly.
good luck
