Need help with bluetooth adapter

by JonesboroBen / June 8, 2013 4:14 PM PDT

Hey guys new to forum so thanks for the help ahead of time. I have a Bose Cinemate Series II home theater 2.1 audio setup connected to my TV and so forth in my living room. There is no audio reciever or anything in between. There is no bluetooth ability that comes with it and I was looking at things like:

and was wondering if I can use it to transmit signal from my iPhone/iPad via bluetooth through the speakers? This may be a stupid question but I get that it will transmit the audio signal FROM the TV to headphones etc but wasn't sure if it worked the other way around. If it doesn't if anyone has a clever solution so I can do this wirelessly I would appreciate it. I currently have to physically plug in my iPhone or iPad through a headphone jack. Thanks again.

The difference between the earphone and speakers are the power requirement. This thing will not be able to drive the speakers (just my guess).

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
