As far as replacing the dvd any dvd player will work, as far as your LCR speakers go ( left, center, right ) it would be best to replace them with the same ones that came with the whole system, at least you want them to be same in size, power, and manufacture relative to the 2 rear speakers, at the very least the replacements should be same in size and power relative to the originals even if not from same manufacturer so as to attain relative level balance with the rear speakers, at the very very least any LCR replacement speakers will do really. The main point is keeping the relative balance between the LCR and rear speakers, the sub can be adjusted on its own. Sorry to hear about your theft by the way, that sucks.

    You may want to consider replacing the LCR's with ones that have individual volume controls on them to keep the overall balance between LCR's and rears, higher quality speakers generally have this feature.
    Since all 5 speakers in a 5.1 system are the same really it doesn't matter, the .1 in a 5.1 system means 1/10th of a bandwidth and that is the sub because it only needs to transduce 1/10th the bandwidth of regular speakers.

    To clarify, I mean that if one wants a 5.1 monitor setup then one need only buy 5 same monitors and a sub, the monitors themselves have nothing left, center, right, or rears about them, left, center, right, and rears has to do with the matrix in the amplifier/ reciever and not the monitors themselves, so one could buy 5 of the same monitors.
    Personally unless you are hooked on bose there are many far better monitors you could buy for your system, so it doesn't have to be bose, I recommend dynaudios but they are not cheap.

I have a Bose Acoustimass 6 Series III the receiver is Yamaha 3066, this system is a 5.1 surround sound. Then I bought a pair of Bose 901 Series VI Direct/Reflective speaker system with active equaliz


The setup is possible, but with several compromises. First off, to use the active equalizer, you'll need to insert this into one of the 2 channel AV channels limiting your listening with the equalizer to stereo only. The acoustimass subwoofer acts a driver/power regulator for the little cube speakers. It probably will not be able to drive the 901s at the correct level when attached to the Acoustimass unit as front left/right speakers. You could try running a dedicated set of speaker leads to the 901s which may work and still allow surround sound, but you'll lose the equalization capability on the 901s.

Not good surround sound Is the bose lifestyle 5 support 5.1 surround sound?


The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.

Recently, I purchased a used set of Bose 901 VI speakers. They are crackling when base sounds play. What is the problem? Was I duped? Is it the speakers or the amp or the volume. Can I repair?


It is likely that the speakers were damaged by someone playing the system at way too high a level.

If the noise sounds like a scraping, then it is the speakers themselves.
If the noise sounds like a breaking sound then it is likely the amplifier.

Another possibility is that if you are not useing a Bose amplifier, then your amp may not be capable of properly powering the speakers.

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.

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.

Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem


AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.
