Using a knige or razor blade, lift the edge of the rear sticker up. Do this evenly and you will fnd all the screws that hold it together. Take your time and you can put the sticker back down.

If the problem does not depend from the source, then that sounds like an internal fault on your Bose system.

Leave the Bose unplugged from power and from computer for one hour, to get rid of electrostatic charges accumulated inside capacitors.
If that does not get rid of the problem, then there is an internal fault, either a short on speaker wiring, or a fault on the internal amp circuit board.

Try changing the plug on the control pod, those plugs are fairly weak and prone to breakage. Does there appear to be any strain at all on the plug itself? if so then that is where I would start. If you have a series 2 then I can help you, or if you can find out if the 2 control pods are the same, that would be fine too, but I have a series 2 system companion 3 and if needed I will cut my cable to trace the wiring and then replace your plug for you. my cost for this would be $40, that includes return shipping with priority mail.

www.google.com or ask.com or bing.com type your question into the search box. have the make & model # next 2 u on a piece of paper.also type in search box bose companion 3 computer speakers, factory service website. or customer service website

go to local.com in search box type Bose companion 3 computer speakers repairs & parts

if you think you can fix it yourself go to
www.tigerdirect.com and click on computer parts and then on audio input cables for a large selection of audio input cables.

You need to look carefully at your input cables, what type of connector jacks they have at each end and buy the exact same cable that has the exact same jacks an\t each end .
cables there are cheap, usually $1.00,2.00 & 3.00 but they also have expensive cables which are a waiste of your $. why buy a $15.00 cable when on the next page there is a $2.00 cable that will work just fine. It pays to look around for price before you buy.
But if you see a cable that will work, bookmark it so you can get back there,just in case you dont find a cheaper cable.

No solution i'm afraid. But i have the exact same problem. Terrible cracking interference. Unplug everything else in the house and they still crackle. Very annoying. Decided to buy a new woofer on ebay as that seemed to be the problem with possible faulty switch, but the new woofer has a different connection for the volume control. Incredibly frustrating. If you have any luck let me know. Bose want eighty quid to repair...

I just fixed this exact problem. There is only 1-2 volts feeding the preamp IC's pin 4 JRC 2059. Positive side of C313 should be 12v(B+ to IC's) found shorted transistor just above C313. Collector goes to V+ 15v from power supply, Emitter feeds the preamp IC's. I used a 2sc3904 (NTE123Ap) unit back up and running
