I bought these but the bracket that holds them has broken. Where can I pick up another bracket or do they make a more solid one out of metal?

When they list 100W power handling is that RMS or Peak? Is that per speaker or for the pair? Thanks in advance.
By Customer Service - Q&A on June 28, 2012
100W would be peak. The RMS (root mean square) is about half that at 50W. This is a pair of speakers.

Would these speakers be able to support something off of an auxilary output cable like an ipod? I have the RCA-headphone jack cable, so I would be able to connect....just not sure if any amplification is necessary. Thanks

Amplification would be key- your RCA to mini cable would connect to the amp or receiver that is driving these speakers connected through speaker cable.

I have a bose wave radio, Would I be able to hook these speakers to it?
By Customer Service - Q&A on March 29, 2012
The BOSE Wave radio does not have Speaker level output allowing you to connect directly to these AP490 Speakers. It will allow you to connect to other BOSE systems, Check with your local BOSE store for other options. You might be able to connect an adaptor cable(Mini 3.5mm to Dual RCA) from the headphone jack on the BOSE Wave Radio to our AMP120 then connect the AP490 to the speaker outputs. That is assuming you can connect some other non BOSE Headphones to Headphone Output on the back of the WAVE Radio. That might be worth a call to BOSE support as well just to make sure.

Can you mount them horizontically?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 4, 2012
The bracket for the AP490 is meant for Vertical application with the ability to tilt the speaker down about 15 to 30 degrees. The bracket is screwed to the Speaker at the bottom of the speaker enclosureand since they are not that heavy, you could mount them horizontially but we do not recommend it.

When I buy "1" am I really getting 1 or 2 speakers? Thanks.
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 31, 2012
These are sold in pairs (you get two, right and left stereo). You do have a choice of white or black finish. It also includes the brackets and mounting hardware. We do not include the screws needed to install the mounting bracket. That will depend where and what surface you choose to mount the speakers. We also sell the proper CL3 speaker wire you will need to connect to your power/source.

Hello I just want to confirm that the OSV70 is the correct volume control to use with the AP490. Also, I am running my outdoor speakers (1 pair of AP490) off of my speaker B outputs on my main receiver while my speaker A run as fronts for my HT system. At times, I plan on running the A and B simultaneously for entertaining.
Do I need to make adjustments accordingly when I do so?
If so, can I leave permanently adjusted or do I have to change it every time?
By Customer Service - Q&A on April 18, 2012
This would be the choice if you are intending to add a volume control. Be advised, however, that a volume control is a passive device. You set up your volume levels with the volume control fully open and set clockwise all the way to the right. The volume control allows you to turn the volume down and does not add any gain to the master volume control from your receiver. You should be able to play both Speaker A and B at the same time as long as your receiver has a switch that shows both playing at the same time (A + B). Make sure you set the Impedance matching switch to 1/2X.

I am planning on buying outdoor speakers to go with my new Sonos Connect Amp. I love Sonos and have it throughout my house. So the Sonos info says "the power rating should be at least 75 Watts for 8 OHM Speakers and at least 150 Watts for 4 OHM Speakers... Do not connect speakers with less than 4 OHMs." What do you think would be the best speaker for this amp for outdoors - with the most bass response - I don't want all high end. I need them to have Mounting Brackets as well.
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 10, 2013
We recommend going with a 5.25" speaker like our AP520, for a little more bass than the AP490 can provide. The AP520s produce better low frequencies because the woofer is larger and can move more air. Both are rated at 8 ohms, come with brackets and are compatible with your Sonos. Happy listening!
