Question about Bose Cinemate Digital Home Theater System Speaker

1 Answer

I have a Bose Cinemate System and a new LG Plasma TV that it will not work with. The Bose system connects using red and white RCA connectors and needs it to be plugged into an Audio Out. The only Audio Out on this TV is an Optical Digital Audio Out. Is there any way to use this Cinemate System with this TV?

If you're using a Cinemate for HDTV listening you're missing out on multichannel sound. However, since it only supports analog 2-channel audio AND a TV or monitor is NOT a meaningful contributor to the listening experience, maybe you could extract the TV audio from the cable box where it ultimately originates in the first place. I'm sure it has a convenient and compatible RCA pair.

Can I connect my Bose wave music system to my LG LED TV LB55, lb56,lb62


Of course.

At the rear of your TV, find the Red and White RCA sockets, which are the Audio OUT.

At the rear of your Bose, find the Red and White RCA sockets, which are the AUX IN.

Using an RCA audio cable, connect those 2 pairs of RCA sockets.

Then, on your Bose, select AUX as the source, and if you've done EVERYTHING correctly, your Bose will now be the speaker system for your TV.

The Panasonic TV I have only has a digital audio out. How do I make it work with the cinemate plug system?


Whatever componenets you have, satellite receiver, DVD Bluray, etc. should be hooked to tv for both audio and video, referrably by HDMI, then you can hook you digital optical out from tv to digital in on your Bose system. If you have component in to tv you can use that to but, you will ahve to provide audio tp tv through Ditgital in or composite cables(red, white, RCA)

How to connect a bose cinemate to a panasonic tv digital audio out cable is not red and white what do i need


Get the best audio for whatever the TV is viewing from the same source (cable/dvd/blu-ray/sat). They will all have at least analog RCA audio output. The TV is not a primary source of audio in these cases.

The cinemate is not really intended for complex installations.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

I just got a new samsung tv and the audio out is different from my old one. i used to be able to connect my cinemates red and white cables to the red and white jacks for the audio out. however, my new tv...


That's probably a digital out. I'm really surprised it doesn't left/right standard output in addition. Are you using a separate AV receiver? If so, and it's a new model, it should have a digital audio input, and then you could send your signal out to your speaker system.

The digital audio connection uses a unique type of connector and a special cable.

If your TV has a red/white pair out from another source, you should be able to select on a menu which audio output to utilize.

Trying to connect to LG 60 inch plasma. no output


Hi.


You need to connect the Bose using the Optical Audio output from TV to Bose main unit (kind of square shaped connector), and not using the RCA inputs on TV.


The picture below is an LG back panel, the optical audio connector is at the lower side of I/O connections at the back of TV, on some model the location of connector may be different.

Bose cinemate no sound


Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate


If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.
