had the same issue. Trial and error - I tried shorting every pair in the control pod dock with a paper clip. Turns out it is totally possible to bypass. You need two: top row, right side to third row, one from the right (below it by two spaces), and second row (there are only two in the second row, connect them). One tells it to turn on, the other passes audio through. I'm only getting sound from the right channel, so probably need to connect one more pair...

Each device is different.
If the receptacle for the plug is not marked, you have few options.
I suggest the following.
Go buy the exact same setup from a store you can easily return it to.
Take the whole box to Radio Shack and explain that you need a power supply to replace the power supply in the box. They will sell you one, plug and all, for about $10-15.
If you have a DVM (Digital Volt Meter), you can check the voltage and polarity yourself, and buy what you need, test it out, and install it.

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...

Check for it grounding out somewhere or the ground wire isn't grounded well. If all is well it is internal in your amp.

Bose Companion 3... | Answered on Aug 02, 2012 | 623 views


Check first that you have connected the speaker to the right output. For example on many computer there is an aux output marked in blue that can give you this problem.

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.
