Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Bose Wave Radio CD clock gaining two hours a day.

My wave radio was purchased in Dubai and is the European spec that requires 220v 50Hz. I have now moved to the Dominican Republic where the power is 110v 60Hz. I have used a step up transformer to power the unit, but the clock gains about two hours a day. My assuption is that the clock uses the power frequency as its timebase. Are there any adjustments I can make inside the unit to rectify this? Or is there any other solution? Thanks

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?

I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

Bose Wave Radio/CD clock running very slow. Now that I've moved it across the pacific ocean(US to NZ) the clock is suddenly running very slow, losing 10-15 minutes per hour while running on any...

My guess is that the clock in the radio is based off of the AC line frequency (not voltage). In the US the line frequency is 60hz (hertz). I'm guessing that the line frequency in NZ is 50hz, which would seem to explain that extreme amount of time loss. I would check with Bose, but I'm betting they make different 50hz models for export.
