My father -in-law just bought an acustimass 7 speaker set from some guy on e-bay and we set it up on an Onkyo receiver. There is barely any sound from the "acustimass". Is this system compatible with any receiver, or does it require a Bose head unit?
First of all, I'm not familiar wit Bose technology but the sub has 3 inputs and outputs, so we did that. I'm not sure how the speakers are set up as to small or large, I can look into that. I had suspected it had somthing to do with the ohm output settings, but wasn't sure.
My dad has a Bose setup. If I remember from a few years ago, you have to set the speakers to large, or full, and subwoofer to off. This way it sends the entire range through the speakers, and if I remember correctly the bose setup has the speaker wires go from the AVR to the acoustimass, then out to the speakers. This way you get all of that awesome sound (ahem) to the sub.
