Sounddock power supply

I have lost the power supply for this unit. I can't find any on line, so I figured I can build one from two 18v power supplies. However, I don't know the pin out connections on the plug, ie. which one is +18vdc, -18 vdc and commons. Do you know what voltage is on what pin?

    hi, i same problem, you know power dc of the power supply? and amperes ?
    I damage power on the supply on the 220 volts ...

    Thanks for any help ;)

    I lost the power supply also. The volts DC for this is +18 volts and -18volts with 1 Amp current. I'am not sure whether we can get the connector, even if we manage to find an equivalent adapeter.

    I bound in 12 volts and 500 mA, and it functioned, if to need the photo of the connector I can take off and send for email.I go to buy an adapter in these specifications of 18 volts and 1 Amp, I make the tests and rank here again.tks

    Since I didn't find an answer to my question regarding the connector to the Bose Sounddock, I eventually bought a power supply. To help anyone else with the same problem, here is the pin configuration on the input socket. Looking at the socket, the upper right pin is +18v; the lower right pin is -18v; the upper left and lower left pins are commons. The power supply is rated at 1 amp for each 18 volt input. Hopes this helps someone.

    I put the power supply into 220 Volts, the display lit for seconds then went away without any sound or smell.

    Any solution for this.

    I thought of replacing the power adapter, but couldn't find the power specifications.

    Please help.

    The connections posted by "Comment by Guru28, posted on Nov 11, 2008" is incorrect for my Bose SoundDock (Version 1). For this model both the upper pins are Ground. The lower right is positive and left is negative.



    For a clear explanation and to make sure your connector looks as shown in picture. check this link:

Hi. To answer your question: The center line of the coaxial cable is ground. The inner metal side of the outer ring is the +18V. The outer metal side of the outer ring is the -18V. I will try to draw it below:

Cricut machines power supplies


18 volts is the voltage and the thing that is most critical to stop the machine burning out.

The 'A' - amperage is the force behind the electricity, 2.0 is a sort of fairly strong person 2.5 amps is a muscle man.

If the piece of equipment needs a muscle man to move it and you use a weaker person, it may not move quite so fast. Good analogy?

Anyway, .5 amps is not going to make that much difference.

The power supply of my Bose sounddock series 1 stopped working and the price of a replacement is too high, Can I change the 4 pins connector to a regular 2 pin connector in the sounddock. (I know that the...


You cannot use a two pin connector as there are three lines, +18, -18 and ground. While you can connect the two ground lines together, you still need to accommodate the split power rails.

The easiest way would be to fit a 3 pin mini-din plug. However, you are going to be looking long and hard to find a replacement power supply on tevshelf that can produce the two rail voltages required at a suitable current.

In the interest of protecting your dock from damage, and given the amount of work required to make the change, you are far better to bite the bullet and purchase a replacement supply from Bose.

Of course, you may be able to source a Chinese clone supply from China on the eBay website - perhaps worth a look... :o)

Bose SoundDock Power Supply Pin-outs so I can test one


Hi, The pinouts are as labelled below. The original Bose supply allows for 1A max current, so I would prevent your power supply from going above that.

My bose sounddock portable system suddenly stopped working so I thought it needed charging, when I plugged it back in to the mains it wont charge and no light comes on the system at all it's totally...


Guys - she has the protable!! Hi Fiona, the best bet is to visit www.invebo.com and check the SounDock Portable diagnostic video. (Repair video is there too) Remove the battery and plug the power in., If you get a beep-beep sound then the unit has power and is booting up so you need a docking connector replacement kit. . If there is no beep beep then it is the power supply or the main unit. (Try a different power supply) . If it works normally then it is the battery - get a new battery. Hope that helps.

I have a Behringer xenyx 802 audio mixer and have lost the power supply. I tried to buy a replacement, but cannot find any in stock. I'm very resourceful and thought I'd make one. The spec sheet calls for...


No, you can't just jump the pins together. The power supply in the mixer needs two separate 18-volt AC inputs because it makes two supply voltages, +15 and -15 volts.

The external supply is just a potted 36-volt transformer with a center-tapped secondary. I bought an open-box Behringer (not your model, but similar) that was missing its supply, and found this transformer which works fine. (I actually did find a couple of sources for a replacement Behringer supply, but it cost more than I paid for the mixer!) Just connect the three output leads to the appropriate places on the mixer's PC board. In mine, I removed the original input connector and soldered a pigtail with a 3-pin connector from Radio Shack to the PC lands, then attached the matching plug to the transformer leads. You'll also need to provide an enclosure of some kind to prevent contact with the line voltage input to the transformer and to protect the thing if you carry it around.

I have a BOSE soundock portable and I have to replace my connector at the end of the power supply.What is the size of the connector.


Bose uses a proprietary connector for their power supply. Your best bet would be to purchase one, for example at this site: http://www.frontrowelectronics.com/bose-power-supply-sounddock-series-1-white.aspx?utm_source=googleBase&utm_medium=referal&utm_campaign=Bose
The four pin connector is not standard and cannot be found in stores such as Radio Shack, etc.

Bose sound dock doesn't work at all


If this is the original SoundDock, the power supply in back is 4 pronged and a pin could be broken. If it makes a quiet thumping sound, then just make sure the power supply is not plugged in upside down (it's easy enough to do).
If this is the SoundDock II or the SoundDock portable, it's hard to say why this would happen, so you should call Bose on that one. There should be an indicator light that tells you when it has power..

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound


The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.

Missing power cable for Bose Sounddock


Repair may the only solution. The new power supply is only slightly different though.. If you don't want to spent the $100 to repair this, you could get the new supply and carve a notch in the top part of the square power input.. Looking at the new power supply, the top is a bit taller and arched but the same specs..
But the new power supply is still expensive. (I think $60+) So for an additional $40 ($100 total) you can get a new supply retrofitted on to the old input. It's worth it- you get a new 1 year warranty, and they put the new Apple dock connector on there (USB charge pin) as well as the power supply, so you can use current iPods as well as old. (Your SD currently won't support- iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2ng gen, or iPod Nano 4th gen.. it will after a repair)
