Question about Bose Audio Players & Recorders
The button on the speakers will not depress. Stuck in.
Posted by Anonymous on
The buttons on my Series-II cubes get stuck all the time. It seems the button itself sticks against the housing. I first spray on a little bit of silicone to coat the sides of the housing that rub up against the button. Then I use a straight razor blade to pry in the gap between the button and the wiring-holes, alternating below each hole. As you do that, the button rocks out a little bit at a time.

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.

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:

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

try a music specialty store or radio shack if you want to only replace the small speakers inside the cubes. If you want to replace the whole cube, there are others out there. Look on ebay and or amazon I think the brand is JA Audio. A knock off of the bose cubes that can be used as stand alone speakers without the module.

I can think of no reason any amp pushing 120 watts would not work with 901-VI's. They're very efficent and will probably play louder and cleaner than you would ever need. As I recall, my old series IV's have no maximum amplifier rating specified, but I did blow up a bridged Carver M-400 Cube (pushing 400 watts to one speaker with a DVD-Audio of Yes - Fragile cranked dangerously high) with them. I'm convinced my speakers are indestructible in any home application.
Keep in mind that whatever you decide to use as your control/amplifier section, a pair of 901's need a dedicated stereo amplifier. I suspect you're thinking surround sound so a receiver with separable preamp/amp channels, due to the Activbe EQ, would be needed and as far as I know they don't exist. A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds.
Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. 120 clean watts is good. I'm using only 110W for mine.
A Carver M-200 is a fine, efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.
if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.
if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose
