There is a Pre Out. Use the FRONT terminals if your Bose are main front speakers.

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.
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
Connect your 901 speaker to the power amplifier outputs
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
Connect Zone 2 pre-out to the EQ901 input
Connect the EQ901 output to any unused analog input
Select the Zone 2 source as any input (i.e. CD player)
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.

SOURCE: Connecting Bose 901 Series VI Direct Reflecting Speakers to JVC RX-8020VBK Receiver

in order to make those speakers sound good (if they can sound good at all) you need to use equalizer box witch came with them. If your receiver does not have tape monitor loop or preamp to amp jumpers you can not use those speakers. To be honest you do not loose much... none of this stuff is any good (sorry for bad news), but if you like those speakers (I know they have big fans, even if in HI-FI world, they not consider as good) you have to change you receiver.

SOURCE: Bose 901 equalizer

Hi Mark, had a look for a manual on your Yamaha, but not got to one as yet. Does it have any RCA connections on the back marked as preout prein? best place to put the 901 EQ is in line with L and R front channels at this preout prein point.

Some amps DO NOT HAVE IT. If our does not, then you could connect it in the tape loop, tape out(rec) to input on the EQ. and the output of the EQ connected to tape in(play), but connected like this, the EQ would affect the tone across all channels(unless you are just running a stereo rig, then this way works great!!) Try this and you may just have solved you problem anyway.

regards
Graeme

SOURCE: I would like to know how to connect my Bose 901 to

Ahhh, the good ole Bose 901. (I like those)... And you want to connect them to the Yamaha RX-V765 AV receiver. That should be a piece of cake. I assume you only have two Bose 901 cabinets. If so, you simply need to connect one end of your speaker wires to the terminals found on the 901 cabinets, and the other end of the speaker wires need to go to the Front Left and Front Right speaker outputs of the RX-V765. The RX-V765 is a 7 channel surround receiver. Weather you run it as a 7 channel theatre or as a more classic 2 speaker configuration, you will want to run the 901 cabs from the Front L and Front R speaker outputs, unless for some reason you want to specifically use them for any of the surround channels in which case it will not harm anything if you use them for surrounds - it's just that if you're simply wanting to use them as your principal speakers, you want Front L and Front R.
So connect them as I explained, power the receiver up, put on your favorite CD and enjoy!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: want to use Yamaha rx-797 reciever with bose 901

I don't know why the comment from Yamaha about Tape Monitor killing digital inputs is relevant.

According to the manal I downloaded, THIS stereo receiver doesn't have digital inputs.

As to using 901's and 301's...

You will need a separate Power Amp for either the 901's or the 301's. Sorry, but you can't share the amp with the Active-Equalized signal and non-901's.

I use 901's and 301's in MY 7.1 rig with a separate amp for the 901 and NOT using a Tape Monitor, but a preamp out feed for the front channels.

How to connect my Bose 901 series vI speaker to yamaha rx v740 and rotel rb 1582. Appreciate your help. Thanks

The Bose controller gets wired in series between the pre-amp and the power amp.

I presume you plan to use the 901's as the front L&R pair. So the cables going from the 740's Pre-Out Front L&R go to the inputs on the Bose controller. The outputs of the Bose controller go to the power amp Front L&R channel inputs.

How to connect my bose 901 to rx-v2200

You can do this however you will need a separate power amplifier.

See notes here: https://deercreekaudio.com/blogs-%26-updates/f/connecting-your-eq901-to-an-audio-video-receiver-avr


  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
The equalized signal will now play through the front left and right speaker outputs in the stereo and home theater modes.

How to connect bose 901 equalizer to yamaha rx-a1000

Short answer from personal experience.

There is no way around this part. Get a separate power amp for the 901's if you want to use them in a multichannel way or alongside non-901 speakers.

Connect the Active EQ between the pre-outs and the amp input.
http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/og_901.pdf


Run speaker assignment, levels, etc and have fun.

Helpful Hint: If you don't have sufficient between-speaker room for proper reflection off the front wall you CAN turn the 901's around and you won't believe the amount of air these things push! I have actually felt it ten feet away after explosions or crashing ocean wave sounds. Now THAT is multi-media.

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

I am using the "

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Yamaha-RX-797-Receivers-manual/id/320ag612/t/2/

I assume you've placed the Bose Active EQ in where the Pre-Out >> Main In jumpers were. Do you have the return from the Bose Active EQ going back into the Main In so it can continue to the Sub Output.

Or do you have the Bose EQ Tape Switch activated incorrectly?

I am looking to upgrade my receiver to an audio video receiver that will hook up to a blue ray via HDMI. I want to use my 901's forthe front speakers. Can you recommend a mid priced (<$600) AVR that...

Good day,

Congrats on your new AV receiver. I own an awesome Yamaha mid-priced AV surround sound system with HDMI, BR disc player, and all that stuff. However, I'm old school and use my 901 Series Vs with a Yamaha RX-797 'two-channel' receiver. To get to the point, I have some bad news. Mid-priced (mp) AVRs, or any AVR for that matter, will not work with 901s because the active equalizer (EQ) requires either a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out / main-in' connection to work properly. You've probably been told the 'why they won't work' by now and it is very true--I know from experience. Most of today's AVRs do not include a 'tape monitor loop' or 'pre-out/main-in connection for the EQ connection, thus, killing all hopes of using 901s. I truly love my 901 Series Vs (since 1985 and still kicking) and love true 'stereo' for playing my music. Again, 901s are useless with today's AVR equipment (as I know it). Just don't let your 901s collect dust--they are truly marvels!! Go with a set of good 'standard' speakers for the AVR system and buy yourself a decent stereo receiver or amp for the 901s--that's how I do it!! I've tried Onkyo, Rotel, Sansui, Poineer amps / receivers--all of them. I can tell you this--for the common, working man/woman, nothing, I mean nothing available can match-up with Bose 901s like a Yamaha RX-797 (200W)--not to mention the sound quality-wow!!! And this unit is very reasonably priced for such awesome performance and high quality build. Just know that all is not lost. You can still use your 901s--I cna't listen to music without mine.
