SOURCE: no power to my speakers. How do you open the amp?

On a Bose Acoustimass 5 Series 3, you need ti first remove the bass and the treble knobs. Then proceed, to going to the top rear gap opening. Turn what I call the cam wheel, until is protruding upwards. Then gently bump with the palm of your hand, the rear cover in a downwards direction, to remove the cover.

Sir my speaker bose 301 series v and i connect to amplifier pioneer 5 x130 watts.also i have center speaker.bose vcs10.is this compatible to good music and movie....


If they're all Bose 301-5's then you have the rare instance of matching speakers all around, so when sounds move around the room in a movie they don't change. I'm envious because even though I have Bose 901's (front) and 301's I don't have that exact match you have. The 301 sound is very good to my ears.

I assume you have them all set as LARGE speakers in the Pioneer, since they are capable of good bass and the parameter is more about Bass response than actual size.

If you added a subwoofer (which you may not need) you might fill in the lowest bass and effects channel.

Connent Bose speakers to Sharper Image SA250 System


Probably. HTIB's are all-in-one for a reason. They typically are not recommended (or explicitly recommended against) mixing and matching with other products or damage can result. Glaring (but not mandatory) evidence of that would be non-standard connections that don't use bare wire ends to connect the speakers to the amps.

I can't find documentation on the SA250. How are you connecting the 501's to it?

Sound though the headphone, none though the speakers, everything is on. Nothing from the amp.


I did repair this, the pre amplifier is broken or no startup signal
check wire from pre amp to subwoofer DIN connector
there should be 12V present.
if so check fuse inside of subwoofer cabinet.
if this is ok whrite back for more info

Not good surround sound Is the bose lifestyle 5 support 5.1 surround sound?


The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.

Bose lifestyle 25 not coming on


There is probably a fuse located somewhere on it and the surge would have blown it, I know that most larger speakers and amps have safety fuses so they do not blow apart, the same goes for most electronics nowadays..find the fuse fix the problem. thanks Steve
