Question about Bose Wave Music System CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Poor FM reception

I live not far from a mountain in the Bay area. My FM reception on my Bose Wave Music System is poor. Where can I obtain an external 75 ohm antenna? Would you please provide me with details such as price, where to buy, etc.?
Incidently I have purchased 3 such systems in the past 2 years and am obviously a devoted fan and customer.

Having paid over $1,800 for 3 Bose Wave systems in the past year, I was surprised and quite dismayed to find that Bose is trying to squeeze a few more bucks out of me in order to provide some very simple information. My Solution: I will never purchase another of your radios. Most humbly, Dr. Jerome Eldridge

Can i connect an external antenna to a sanyo awm 2000u stereo for better tuner reception?


Your stereo came with a piece of wire attached at the back. This is/was the FM aerial. It should be roughly 1 metre or approx 38" long. There is no socket on the back of this stereo to attach an external FM aerial. So if the wire broke off then you're going to have to either attach some new wire to the stub, or open the set up and solder directly to the circuit board.

The exact cable lengths for an FM antenna to pick up 88-108 MHz is 37.66" long.

Can not get DAB radio too work on my Vita audio but FM radio works fine


This may be because you live in an area where DAB reception is currently poor, but to check this, please use our postcode checker (see 'check your DAB coverage' panel on the right) to see which DAB stations you should be able to receive. If reception for your area appears to be good, then it may be down to local conditions or building materials. Buildings constructed from steel and reflective glass are not good for radios with internal aerials as they reflect and greatly reduce the strength of signal. In such a case an external aerial will greatly improve reception, but most importantly, if you are using the supplied telescopic aerial, you should ensure that it is properly fitted and fully extended upright.
Secondly, when our products are first powered up from new, they automatically scan the DAB network to see which services are available. During this process it is important that the radio is not touched and that the aerial has been correctly fitted and extended as instructed. If this has not been done then it is likely that not all stations will be detected and only the strong ones displayed. To correct this a new AutoScan/AutoTune or System Reset should be performed as instructed elsewhere in our Q&A's.

Bose Wave Radio (Made in China)


Whilst I can't supply that, i'm surprised you can't pick up the parts you need simply by calling Bose - anything external like wires, the screen, and the remote control can be bought from Bose.
Anything internal will need to be serviced and therefore is not available for customers, as if you get it wrong you will only come back to complain at the company.

AM static


the easiest way would be to move the radio farther away from the furnace.

External FM antenna


The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.
