    If you biwire you have to take that jumper out from between the two pairs or posts. Did you do that? It's in the manual.

Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D510 reciever with 5 speakers and sub. The sub keeps making continual popping sounds at higher volume levels when watching movies, tv etc. Have to turn most of the way down. Also,...


Manuals help a lot.

Tell us about the speakers. Maybe they're not compatible.

As far as what to expect to hear from surrounds, that depends on the sound engineering.

Test tones for speaker setup will get it all dialed in. Page 17.

I'm connecting Bose 901 speakers with an Active Equilizer hookup required to my new Pioneer VSX-520. What in/out puts should be used ??


The solution to using 901's in a multichannel rig works best when you have individual Front Right and Left Pre-Outs but this receiver doesn't have them so a compromise is in order.

First some background.


The use of 901's Active EQ (or any external processor) in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor which could introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.


In an AVR, if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Your Pre-Outs get us around that possibility and limitation but it also means you need a moderately powerful amp for your 901's.

This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers...


Get yourself a nice separate amp, draw the Front L&R pre-out signals from wherever you can find them, in your case maybe the CDR or DVR/VCR outputs.


On many AVR's, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others (yours), you have to borrow the signals from a typical CDR or DVR/VCR Output RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won

How to install bose 901 eq to my pioneer vsx-1019ah-k


This works for all models of AV receivers when you want 901's as Front L&R speakers..

On many, there is a pre-amp out for every channel in case you want to run external amps for any channels. That is how my old Pioneer VSX-36TX is equipped. For others, you may have to borrow the signals from a typical Tape- or Adapter-Out RCA pair. Just remember, AV receivers disable digital inputs as soon as you switch in a Tape Monitor, so choose one you won't have to switch IN. The signal Out is always there regardless of the monitor state.

Patch the Active EQ directly off that point (Amp In from the receiver, Amp Out to the new amp). Run all the speaker level settings on the AV Receiver and rock on.

Amatuer needs sub-woofer advice for Pioneer VSX-454...


Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.
