You can't. On all audio and televisions that use a remote, the audio source is selected via the remote.

You need to check both the Ohms range of both devices, plus the output power of them too.
The ohms range is the most crucial. For example if the amp will only go down to 8 ohms, you cannot connect speakers lower than that. No speaker must have an ohms rating lower than your amp. Higher doesn't matter.
Many amps have a range on them say 4 to 16 ohms. But the crucial one is the smaller figure.

The power output is less problematic. For example if the amp is 30 watts per channel, then you should connect a speaker of at least that, or more. But you could still connect say 25 watt speakers. However you MUST NEVER turn up to full volume or you will blow the speakers!

Use a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol. Wet the end of the swab and gently rub the top of the laser lens. Let it dry for a few min and then try playing the cd again.

I do not have a lot of experience with Bose. I usually tell customers to contact Bose directly. They have very good repair rates and if they can not fix it, they will usually offer an upgrade at a great discount.

You can check the remote using a cell phone that has a camera. If you point the remote at the camera and press a button, you should be able to see the light flashing. If not, then the problem is most likely the remote. If the light is flashing, then the remote is working.

Move your aerial on the back or move the unit. AM stations are weaker and prone to signal loss. Also keep it away from other wiring and units like microwave ovens.
