Virtually invisible 300 speaker swap

i don’t have these yet but wanted to know if it’s possible to use different speakers than what comes in the 300 kit? I assume the receiver is also an amplifier sending a powered signal to the speakers? I was thinking of doing an inwall speaker and wanted to use the receiver/amp hw from this kit. Would that work?

Hi Joel19812,

 

I had a similar question. Did you manage to get it to work?

Re: Virtually invisible 300 speaker swap

Hi all,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

We do not recommend changing the speakers from the VI300 kit, as doing so could damage the VI300 receiver module.  Changing the speakers could draw too much power from the module.

 

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

 

Best Regards,

Thanks for the info. Would changing the speakers to another Bose product such as the BOSE 742898-0200 work? Just trying to figure out how best to convert to an inwall speaker solution.

Hi Joe19812

 

Thanks for replying!

 

As Brandon was mentioning, the VI300s were designed to work with what came in the speaker kit.  The 591s will draw too much power as it's rated to work with a dedicated amplifier like an SA-5.  

 

Warm Regards,
