I have an Acoustimass 7 bass module and the usual 3 jewel double-cube speakers. Will it be ok to hook up the cube speakers earmarked to front left and right to the receivers surround speakers port?
The cube as center speaker remains the same.
the reason is that i have a bose 301 series 5 that ive been using as front left and right thus i would want to use the cubes as surround speakers, still connected to the bose acoustimass module.
appreciate any feedback. Newbie here.
Hey Popoy62, thanks for your message.
The three double falcon cube array speakers that are used with the Acoustimass 7 system are designed to be connected directly to the corresponding Acoustimass module, and not a separate receiver/amplifier. While the connection may be possible, should they work, they will likely not sound as expected or desired to our standard.
However, the 301 V speakers could be directly connected to your receiver's "surround speakers" port instead. The 301 V speakers are rated as compatible with receivers that are 10-150 W per channel, 4-8 ohms. You are able to check with the manufacturer of your receiver to see if they are compatible.

My situation is different but same question. I have 2 Bose systems. One set has 5 double cubes and the other set has 5 single cubes. Identical bass modules for each. So could I use the double cubes marked center/surround as the front speakers with a single cube center channel speaker and single cube surrounds. Then the other setup would be three double cubes up front and two single cubes in the rear. My only concern is using the C/S speakers as front speakers. Is there a difference on the inside of the C/S speakers versus L/F?
