Re: Can I hook up a passive subwoofer with satellite speaker outputs to SA5 amplifier b outputs?

Hello Egregory57, 

 

Thanks for reaching out via the Bose Community. Welcome to the site!

 

The SA5 Amplifier is not designed for use as a 2.1 setup. Ideally, you should use either 1 or 2 pairs of speakers for the Speakers A, and Speakers B outputs. 

 

I would recommend cross-referencing the below SA5 specifications with your speaker to confirm compatibility. 

 

• Output Connections: Two pairs of speaker outputs (1 pair for Speakers A; 1 pair for Speakers B)

• Power Output: 100 watts per channel, nominal 8 ohms per pair

• Use only unpowered speakers. Do NOT connect any make or model of powered speakers. Doing so may cause damage to the equipment.
• One pair of speakers requires 4-ohm minimum each.
• Two pairs of speakers require 8-ohm minimum each.

 

If you require a user manual for the SA5, you can find one here.

 

I hope this helps, and if anyone else has achieved a similar setup, please feel free to add to the conversation. 

 

Kind regards,
