This is the quick and easy way to adapt a standard stereo 3.5mm (1/8 inch) sound output into standard RCA plugs. Ideal for connecting your MP3 Player with a 3.5mm plug to VCR's, TV's or anything else that has RCA stereo sound inputs.
General Features:
- Fits standard 3.5mm (1/8") stereo phone jack
- Gives you two male RCA (left / right) sound outputs
- Great for converting a headphone jack to standard RCA sound outputs
- 6 foot length
- Straight cable (not a coiled cable)

Generally these connectors cost between $1.00 to $5.00

I have a bose 321 system and I want to hook up HDMI cable, is there any way I can hook them up?

You must have been provided with a user guide/manual along with Bose 321 system . Follow the instructions on Set up 4 at page 12 wherein details have been given to connect HDMI cable along with the diagrams. Follow it. If you do not have the manual go to the following link and down load the manual in pdf

I cant get my ps3 to come through my bose 123 system

More specifics would be helpful. To connect a PS3 to a 321 via optical, it depends on what series of 321 you have, but you need to assign the optical connection via the system menu. If this is the series 1 321, it's the settings menu. It can be assigned to any input "AUX etc.."

Audio problems with Bose 321 system

Hi, sounds like the centre front speaker is disconnected. Check the wiring on that, if all is good there then a fault most likely with the amp. To make sure try connecting a different speaker to the centre channel just for test purpose to eliminate a speaker/cable fault. Best of luck

Adding Spaekers

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

Hooking up bose 321 to my tv

I am about to go through the same process. I have a Bose 321, and am on the verge of getting a HDTV. From what I can figure, the Bose can play a dvd and input it to the HDTV via video and audio output plugs off the back of the Bose to the audio/video input jacks on the back of the new HDTV. I think individual cables will have to be run for each. They usually are red or white, sometimes green or blue. I am sure everyone has seen these in their life. The Bose 321 technology only had what was called an S-Video cable output for the best picture, which is how my current tv gets it's Bose signal, but now HDMI seems to have superceded S-Video. Therein lies an obstacle to be overcome.

Additional speakers for 321 system

No. You would need some kind of audio out connections on the back of the media center. The only audio outs it has are the
Acoustimass® Module – SPDIF connector.

Unless you were to hook up an amp before the Bose media center. In other words, you could run your TV to another amp's line in. You would hook up additional speakers to this other amp, then run audio line outs to the line in of your Bose media center. Some stereo amps have a line out or record/tape out, it is from here that you would run the cables to your Bose media center line ins. The disadvantage to doing it this way is you would have to plug all your media devices (dvd, tv, etc) into this amp first and your Bose remote wouldn't let you switch between devices. If your media devices you have offer digital audio, then you would want an amp that also offers a digital out for the best sound. Otherwise you will end up with analog out from this amp to the Bose media center and thus lose any of the digital signal information like surround information. So there isn't much point in doing this. If your gonna get an amp that has all the digital in's and out's, you might as well just use it with new speakers and forget the Bose system you have.

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture

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
