Connecting Bose 901 series iv to Harman Kardon AVR 254

Most HK av receivers have pre amp out,power amp in with metal jumpers connecting them for the main or front channels. that would be the best place to hook up the EQ on a AV receiver. If your receiver doesn't have pre out, power in jacks , you can use tape monitor .record out playback in. The tape monitor option is best for stereo use , as the active EQ will charge all speakers in tape mode, possibly damaging other speakers.I run my 901 s with a seperate pre-amp,power-amp hooked up to my Denon AV receiver that way i can run in surround w/standard speakers

Adding Subs to a Bose 901 system

You would need to use a modern equalizer like the EQ901 PS which has a built in crossover and four outputs. This would be connected in the pre-out / main-in loop of your Marantz 2285B. minidsp eq901ps-ii-bsgkn5rmzo15xr1s5rsozxgo-d-1.jpg

My problem is conect bose 901v to reciver yahama

Here are three options to connect your EQ901B or a BOSE 901® Equalizer to a typical Audio Video Receiver (AVR). See: https://deercreekaudio.com/blogs-%26-updates/f/connecting-your-eq901-to-an-audio-video-receiver-avr Option 1: Adding a Separate Power Amplifier - Best Option This option requires that you add a separate power amplifier. 1) Connect the pre-out main left and right to the EQ901 inputs 1 and 2, and the EQ901 outputs 1 and 2 to the power amplifier inputs left and right 2) Connect your 901 speaker to the power amplifier outputs 3) The equalized signal will now play through the front left and right speaker outputs in the stereo and home theater modes. Option 2: Setting up Your EQ901 B Using Zone 2 Loop 1) Connect Zone 2 pre-out to the EQ901 input 2) Connect the EQ901 output to any unused analog input 3) Select the Zone 2 source as any input (i.e. CD player) 4) Select the Zone 1 source to the input selected in step 2 The equalized signal will now play through the front speaker outputs in Stereo Mode Zone 1. Option 3: Setting up the EQ901 B Using Only a Single Source 1) Use this option if you have only one source. This example uses a CD player 2) Connect the EQ901 B in between the CD player and any AVR input 3) This may require the 2V input mode on the EQ901B The equalized signal will play only the single source (i.e. CD) when the input referenced in line 2 is chosen adding a separate power ampifier-bsgkn5rmzo15xr1s5rsozxgo-d-0_5.jpg

Onkyo tx sr705 & bose 901

No. Active Equalization is required for the 901's and not to be used with any non-901 speakers.

Can I hookup a Bose 901 EQ to my receiver and amp?

Your instincts are correct. In fact, the only way the 901's can live in an A/V system is with dedicated amplification.

Put that old amp back to work.

This is exactly how mine are connected.

For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

How can i hook up my 30gb Ipod to my Bose 901

There has to be some amplification in here somewhere. Any single amplifier will not work correctly with the Active EQ for 901's applied to non-901 speakers.

Any MP3-player device with at least a headphone output can feed any standard audio device that has a Line Level input (other than "PHONO") once the output is adapted to fit the input.

Connect pioneer vsx-9700s receiver to tech.equalizer??

If there is no rca connection on the back labeled something like "external processor" then it could probably go through a tape loop. At least that's the way it used to be done last millenia. ;)

Best amps for bose 901

You need an amplifier with at least 200 wpc to get the most out of your BOSE. Look into getting a NAD, ADCOM or CARVER amplifier. I prefer CARVER myself. I am running a CARVER M-500T(251 wpc) on my 901's and they sound incredible.

What kind of amplifier and

I would recommend a high power 2-channel amplifier, minimum 16 guage speaker wire, and of course the Bose 901 active EQ that matches the series of your speakers. I use a Yamaha mx-830 power amp & cx-830 pre amp 170 wpc They (Bose) claim that they're unlimited power handling, But if you use a amplifier with to little power and overdrive it to make it louder, you could damage the speakers or amp. With my 170 watt class A amp,the 901 series 6 will blow wind across the room. Go with the best amp you can afford! best for money- Yamaha,Denon,Onkyo!

What is a good placement for the 901 series VI speakers? I've heard the backwall is half the distance to the sidewall

Depends on the shape and contents of the room. Look up "best acoustic placement of speakers" in your web browser. Good Luck!

What would be the correct placement of the Bose 901 series VI?

This fully depends on the room. If it is a simple square room, set the front speakers left and right about 2 meters from your TV, try to do the same at the back. Point them slightly into your direction and try if this sounds good for you. If not you could try to turn them.

Hey i just bought a pair of bose 901's and was

Keeping in mind that the 901's and multichannel recievers won't work unless you use an outboard amp for them, that should open up the choices pretty wide. But your MP3-compatible AVR MUST have front channel pre-outs. Any solid 100 watt x 2channel amp will drive them.
