Can't Connect My New Electronics to My Old Bose System?
Updated: Feb 17, 2022
Many clients have purchased new electronics such as Apple TV, Roku, or 4K DVD players and can’t connect these new devices to their older Bose systems. The issue is most of these new components including new cable or satellite boxes, only have HDMI outputs and older Bose systems have no HDMI inputs. There is a possible work around to solve this problem. First check and see if your TV has enough HDMI inputs to connect your new components directly to your TV. Next, confirm that your TV has an audio output that is compatible with the Bose console input. Depending on the age of your Bose system, you will need either an analog (red & white) or digital output from your TV. If the answer is yes to both, then simply connect your devices directly to the TV and connect the audio output from your TV to the Bose console. Be sure to remember the name of the input on your Bose console. Once this is done, use your TV remote to select your electronic component by switching inputs or sources and use the Bose remote to select the correct input with the TV audio. Also use the Bose remote to control the volume. Please visit our website at www.wbsouth.com.
