      Answer

      Thank you for your question. The 151 SE speakers are compatible with any amplifier or receiver which outputs between 10-200 watts per channel and 4-8 ohms. We do not recommend any particular brands over another. Whichever receiver in your price range with necessary features falling within these specifications should work well for you.

      Answer

      You can, but you will get very little sound to probably no sound at all from them since your TV will most likely not have enough power to push them. Check your TV documentation to see if the output connectors for the speakers are powered or not - if not, you will need an amp/receiver to get real sound from it.

        Answer

        Hi there. Thanks for the question. The 151 Speakers cannot be connected directly to a Wave Music System. Since the 151's are not self powered speakers, they require a connection to an amplifier for them to produce audio.

        Answer

        Glad you asked! As the receiver specifies speakers that are over 50 watts and 4-8 ohms are required, at 10-100 W per channel, 4-8 ohms the 151SE will be a perfect fit.

        They'll connect through the rbg or headphone jack. You'll need the respective wires for those. (RBG three prong or an auxillary cord).

          Answer

          Our LifeStyle V25 system is compatible with many different types of outdoor speakers, including our 151 model. In addition to the speakers, you will need to connect a Bose LifeStyle expansion amplifier and use a Bose model PMCIII remote control. These expansion parts and more information on the setup can be obtained through our support team. They can be reached at 1-800-380-4831. Thanks!
