Hello guys,

Did one of you have a non BO center speaker connected directly to a BV7-40 ? Is it even possible ?

I would like a smaller speaker than the beloab 7 serie, I do not have sufficient place between TV and cabinet.

Thanks for your return

Eric

Do you think it is possible to acheive that with a beolink passive kit and a Loewe normal speaker ?

Any experience with such a setting ?

Yes this is perfectly possible, I have a BeoVision 7-40 MKV with BeoLab 7.2, Bose Active Subwoofer with Speakers at the front connected by a powerlink to phono adapter and set as BeoLab 8000's in the menu and then for my rears I have a pair of the new 2012 B&W M1's connected to a Passive Kit with the TV set to think that they are BeoLab 4000's. The key is to make sure that the frequency range of the speakers roughly match something in the B&O range and that you choose them in the sound settings of the TV.

The result that I have achieved is fantastic and really sounds good, I unfortunately can't justify spending the money on B&O speakers, whilst the Bose were just a temporary setup until I could afford them, I am now so please with the end result that I don't think I would change the setup.

Thanks for this. I red a few old post about using the beolink passive with a BV7, but never for a center speaker...

I still miss something in my setup for movie watching, certainly a central speaker, but I am a bit dissapointed that with a pair of BL4000 , a BL11 an Oppo blu-ray and a BV7, i feel to have a worse sound than the one I had before with my sony tv connected to my BM7000 :-(

But should also work as a centre speaker...

Are your BL4000s connected to left-right front PL outputs? Is your BL11 connected to sub out?

Try to connect the BL11 to left-right outputs of your BV7 and the BL4000s to BL11 PL outputs (as a stereo setup).

Or connect all speakers to your BM7000 - as a stereo setup - and set the BV7 to V.OPT 0 and the BM7000 to A.OPT.

That will bring you your "old" setup back...:)

Hi Stefan,

BL are connected the way you described, my dealer came back to change that (they were previously connected as a center speaker)

I also tried to connect the BL11 to BV, as you mentionned, but sound was horrible, like if I had just a pair of tweeter.

I still have to test the old fashion way, everything to BM7000, maybee i will find some time this weekend.

I am not familiar with the OPT settings. I will have a look on the archive and try to understand all this
