SOURCE: Bose Acoustimass 15 woofer, Replacement of RCA female connector

On the end opposite of the jacks (top of the sub opposite connectors) in the exact middle, there is a ratchet looking device (flashlight and magnifying glass reveal the little culprit) with a very small flat screw driver rotate the piece CCW until a small tab is protruding from the middle. Pu the palm of your hand on the plastic case and give it a small whack (in the direction of the jacks) it will move about a 1.2 inch. Lift straight up and the case will come off and reveal the connectors. Trust me, get a flashlight and magnifying glass and peer through the small crack between the cover and the box, you will see the little notch (encoder looking) rotating wheel

All I did was unplug my surge protecter for a 1 minute and once I did that I had bass from the module again.  I am using a Belkin PURE AV power console.

The Bose systems are SYSTEMS for a very good reason. They're made for people who want good sound but don't want to manipulate the hardware much. The speakers and amps are designed for each other ONLY, not only electrically but through soundshaping to provide the smooth final result. The design is for you to feed the electronics a Line Level source and the magic and distribution happens internally. These are NOT mix 'n' match components. The special connectors are a clue. The Yamaha will probably blow them up if you manage to succeed with your plan.

You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.

How find schematic diagram acoustimass 10 III


No kidding but "good luck". Bose doesn't like telling anyone anything about the workungs or specs of their products. You'll only hear them tell you "it's the end all, be all product". And you're blindly supposed to accept that.

How do i hook up bose accustimass speaker to my radio?


Acoustimass speakers need to be driven by a Hi-Fi amp/receiver or AV receiver. So the thing that's driving them needs to be an amplifier.

Unless your radio is also an amplifier then the radio and the Bose speakers are not directly compatible. There's no suitable output on the radio that generates the correct signal in sufficient power.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

How do I connect my Acoustimass® 5 Series III Stereo Speaker System to my Onkyo SR506 av receiver?


Well, first of all this speaker system is designed to give you a subwoofer where you do not have a sub-woofer output on your receiver/amp. However, that is not the case with the Onkyo. The way I would set it up (only because of the speakers you have) according to the Acoustimass Manual. You take the left and Right "Speaker" outputs to the Left and Right input on the Acoustimass and the speakers crossover does the rest. The Onkyo is designed to have a powered subwoofer so in this format you would just tell the receiver to turn off the sub channel which would tell the Onkyo to send the low end to LR. That should do it.
