      No, it's "universal". It's an industry standard.

          Answer

          No, this replaces the audio only cable. The AV cable can be a component cable, red green blue which is older HD, or a HDMI cable with one plug to allow audio and video HD in one cable. Also there is composite cables which is standard definition which has three connections, yellow for video and red and black or white for audio connection. Depends on what type equipment you are using.

            You must check your computer to see if it have a digital optical plug in first cause most don't. If it do then yes this is the best.

              Answer

              Maybe. It is difficult to answer this question without knowing exactly what model of TV and what kind of external speakers you are talking about. In general, if you are using your TV to watch "over the air" HDTV (in other words, not cable or satellite) or if you have a "smart" TV, you need a way to get the audio from your TV to your external speakers. The best way to do that is with an optical cable. I have two TVs in my house that are hooked up to external speakers with an audio cable and both set-ups required the use of an optical cable to get the audio from the TV to be played through the external speakers. Check the back of your TV and external speakers for an optical audio port. In my first set-up, I have a Sony TV hooked up to a Denon receiver that powers a 5.1 speaker set-up. This is an older model TV and for years I used it with DirecTV, which was hooked up to my receiver via HDMI, so I never noticed that I "needed" an optical audio cable. However, last year I cancelled my DirecTV and couldn't get the audio from my TV's tuner to come out my home theater speakers, until I purchased an optical cable (Insignia). I plugged the optical out on my TV to the optical in on my receiver. I pushed a button on my receiver telling it that the TV was hooked up via optical input. The next thing I knew I was listening to amazing sound quality using an antenna. It's nice. In my other set-up, I have a Sony Smart TV hooked up to a Sony Sound Bar (external speakers). In this set-up, I had to use an optical cable by hooking up the audio out on the TV to the audio in on the soundbar. However, my soundbar came with an optical cable, so I did not have to purchase one. I know that I have different equipment than you asked about, however, I believe most manufactures have similar audio and video ports and set-ups. I hope this helps answer your question.

                Make sure that the Bose connector is a Toslink and not a Mini-Toslink connector. Most things are just the normal toslink, should be fine

                I have no idea, but it appears the speaker was meant to be wall mounted.

                Yep. It's by Insignia. Takes the Digital head and turns it white and red (rca I think) or visa versa. Best Buy sells it for dirt cheap.

                Yes, I saw a longer one on the rack where I bought mine. I don't recall the length, but it was quite a bit longer.
