Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Hummmmmmmmmmm Its the AWR1 1w Hummmm problem. The hum gets only slightly better if I tune it to another station. I could do better with a three dollar radio. For the price I paid you would think the thing would cure itself. I paid more for it than I can get it for today..... considering inflation I probably paid four times what I originally paid for it.

Are you listening to AM or FM? If you are listening to AM, trying rotating the radio. You may be picking up some type of local AM interference. If it's happening on FM....then I guess there is always a possibility that you may have a defective power supply and what you are hearing is the hum from that.

How to tune to an am station on hf. ?


The AM Shortwave Broadcasts are subject to propagation which means that unlike the regulars stations they normally come in better at night. You can normally find them in the evening between 6 and 9 MHz. (You can research frequencies on the net) You tune them just like any other AM station

Clear the cables from any other cables (power cables etc) Try moving the base station slightly, it is most likely interference

Slightly off frequency is it possible to correct


I assume it is digital tuning?
If it is digital tuning the answer is no.
Sometimes reception is better when you purposely mis-tune by one digit lower or higher than the stations call numbers.
If it is under warranty, try exchanging it or just listen to and compare another one or more of the same model to hear if they are all slightly off frequency.

The FM stations will drift away after tuned in, the station will stay on for about two to three minutes and them fade away. Any help would be welcome


It is very possible that a critical component in the local oscillator for the FM band has become thermo sensitive. As the temperature changes the component is drifting slightly in spec.

Another type of fault to cause this, is there could be a problem with the voltage regulation of a voltage source that feeds the local oscillator for the FM. As this voltage changes slightly, it would cause the gain of the local oscillator device to change a little, and thus its stabilty would be effected.

The speculation about the thermo problem is more common than a voltage regulation problem.

This would require to be serviced by someone who has the instrumtation and who is experienced in troublshooting this type of circuitry.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Wire antena (that came with SS5 system) causes a hum


It is assumed that the hum is coming down the aerial wire it self....The hum should be eliminated
dissappear if you remove the wire from its connector at the rear of the receiver.

If this is the case then reconnect the aerial and try to find a radio station to listen to..

When you find a station you will find the hum dissappears as follows:

When there is no station detected the receiver tweaks up its sensitivity via the Automatic Gain Control, (AGC) and when this happens any thing that is detected on the aerial is reproduced at the speakers and in your case its just a hum.

I have heard this event lots of times and mostly its scrackles or scratchs or other weird sounds which come down the aerial while the AGC is flat out at maximum..

The radio station transmits a sound "carrier" and within this carrier there is the music content.

The receiver detects the "carrier" when you tune to the radio station, and then it sets its receive
level to the setting made by the volume control and then lovely music is presented at the speakers..

So in fact your receiver is working as it should be ,.,,, no worries mate....

Now if the hum is still there when the music is there then you have a fault, but as you havent mentiond this aspect your receiver is in my view quite "normal".

Cheers For Now

Connection and Reception


I would suggest to try another phone. I am considering that the phone line is okay. It is possible that there is a fault in the power supply inside of the base station. I have seen the supply section in the base station go defective causing hum, and or complete failure of the phone.

If the power supply is at fault, the failure can be a voltage regulator, or some bad capacitors, or something along that line.
