Q
This takes care of the the supply or amp side connections. What about an adaptor for the in-wall speaker wire to the Bose cube speaker connections? My setup is a Bose Lifestyle V35.

i have an acoustimass 10 system. i used this and all the wall cube speakers terminate to the punch down block on this. the rca adapters on this adapter then plug into my sub-woofer. i did need another cable system to connect from the sub-woofer to my receiver speaker connections. if your speakers don't have to run through your sub-woofer first, this should be all you need.

It worked for my lifestyle 48/ not sure what the differences is with the 35- but it should work
[ CHAD  Aug 06, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
I have a lifestyle 650 I just want to use this with the rear and front speakers. Is that possible or do you have to use with center and bass as well?
[ ACG123  Nov 21, 2017 ]

A
It is possible to install this for all but the center channel speaker. You can still connect that center speaker directly into the bass module using the wire that came in the Bose lifestyle system. HTH! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q

Q
I see it is from 2004. Does it work with the Acoustimass 10 V?
[ RP  Feb 03, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
I have the Acoustimass 10 Series IV and it works perfectly. If your speakers connect to the sub with an RCA-type cable, it should work.

Q
Will this work with bose cinematic 520?
[ MJBBMANO  Dec 21, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
Though not familiar with the Cinematic 520, I will still say probably not. All the instructions say either Acoutimass systems or Lifestyle systems. I am sure Bose would love to sell a lot more of these adapters and you would think that it fit, it would be somewhere in their instructions or something that talked about its compatibility.
[ Mark  Dec 23, 2014 ]  Staff
A
Not sure, but if the base module has RCA type connections (as 535 system does) then I'd guess it'll work.
[ KEVIN  Dec 23, 2014 ]  Staff
Q
I am not sure yet where I want my subwoofer to go, is it possible to install 2 of these plates in case I decide to move it and my furniture in the future?

Yes you can install two locations. Only one in use at a time. Lots more wire but makes a very clean install
[ MATTHEW W  Mar 18, 2014 ]  Staff
A
Yes, it is possible but a little hard. But if you have the position available for it, and your house is not pre wire already. Example is My house was pre-wire so I didn't have other option than put it at the space available for it. Meaning were all of the cables connect. I know is tricky but it is possible and it is very easy to install.
[ ROSANA  Mar 17, 2014 ]  Staff
A
This will only work in one location. Unless you install a speaker switch of some kind but I think that would cause more resistance and interference in the line then it would be worth. I say this because all your in wall speaker wires get directly plugged into this outlet.
