The R428 refers to the resistor designation not the actual value in Ohms. The previous post says something about the resistor 330. Not sure if that is kohms or ohms. Look for something in that range.

Hi,

I cannot exactly solve this issue but I can make a comment based on investigation. Lots of people have this issue but there are very few comments to help solve the issue unfortunately.

I have the same issue and have been able eliminate various things because I have a second complete Bose Lifestyle 5 system.

It is clear the issue does not lie in the Sub and is related to the Music centre unit. I can use a second identical music centre to power my sub just fine and my broken Music centre cannot drive my second sub.

Now the issue is knowing where to track down R428 in the music centre which is the suggested fix to this issue. I have opened my unit and there are resistors various Resistors in the 400 range but no R428.

If anyone can help with the location of R428 in the Music Centre I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Jeff

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.

There is power to the unit. But we can not get any sound. the remote works. tried mute nothing.please help


Make sure that your speakers are plugged in correctly and wires aren't shorting out. also try plugging your equipment into another input on the unit. Make sure the any switches on the Bass unit (subwoofer/Amp) are switched on.
Good Luck!

AV28 had been stored in closet for 1 year. When I reinstalled the system, there was no sound (sub or satelites). The power to the sub is ok, but I can't tell if it is powered up as I could not find a power...


AV28? You mean a Lifestyle 28 with dvd head unit? Is the head unit lit up?.. It has its own power supply box/lead of course. Then the multi pin lead needs to be in zone 1 (or A) I think. The head unit should then command the bass to turn on- you won't hear/see any indication of this...except if its the later ones with the ethernet type connector and there are some data green leds to show signs of life. Some models used red/white phonos for the sound so make sure these are connected from head unit to bass. Its not uncommon for the mains fuse insode a bass unit to fail for no reason..the cover is a sod to get off- undo any screws then move the toothed arm out 90deg first, then give a sharp bang downwards on the end cover. good luck.

No power to my speakers. How do you open the amp? BOSE acoustimass 5 Thanks


A powered AM5 bass unit? Undo the 1/2 screws, tease out the toothed quadrant by 90deg then tap the plastic panel down/away from the toothed quad. not easy the clips are usually very tight.

Can i use my lifestyle 5 to other cd player?


Yes. But you need your Model 5 music center connected. Just like any receiver. -Without the main LS head unit, this will not be able to turn on.

Alan, The resistor is on the underside of the CD 5 main pcb near the jack socket it is a small chip resistor, but this can be replaced with a small 1/4 watt or smaller resistor. If you provide me with your e mail address I will send you a copy of the PCB layout drawing, the image size is to large to attach
