    It's not a problem with the satellites, it seems to be an issue with the right out on the subwoofer, going to write to them now...

    I have this EXACT same problem. I purchased on 8/30/2008 at a Best Buy in Houston. The speakers are still under 1 year warranty so I am going to see what they will do about this.

SOURCE: bose companion speaker stopped working!?

What happened to you is probably mere coincidence with your cousin's use of the headphones and this is throwing you off. I own the Bose Companions also and they stopped working as well. However, I traced the problem to the "wall wart" power supply. Not sure why but Bose is now using an interchangable plug on them. If you look at the power supply you will see a "PUSH" button. If you depress it the plug can slide out. When it is slid back in and locked in place the connection between the plug plate and the power supply is not a good one. Try fiddling with it. But even if the connection is not the culprit, something in the power supply is. I swapped another power supply with the same connector and spec's ( amps must be the same ) from another item and the speakers worked perfectly.

SOURCE: Bose Companion 5 Speaker System won't work

check if the volume control needs to be replaced. volume controls gets bad in due time coz of the carbon layer which gets thinner and thinner till it gets cut off

SOURCE: I have Bose Companion 2 Series ones and the left makes odd noises

> I turn the volume to a low it still has the odd noise
If there is any drive to the speaker at all (volume not turned off), the rattle is probably coming from a broken 'surround;' the part that keeps the cone centered around the outer edge.
Another point of failure is a structure called a 'spider' that is located between the voice coil and cone that ensures the voice coil stays centered.
If there is hum with the volume turned completely down, the amplifier driving the speakers (internal or external) has a failing filter in the power supply.

My Bose companion 20 right speaker will not work on my I pad


Plug a pair of earphones into the iPad to see if the problem is the speakers or the iPad. Once you have the piece that's not working correctly figured out, it's time to take it to the repair shop.

Audio input cable replacement


www.google.com or ask.com or bing.com type your question into the search box. have the make & model # next 2 u on a piece of paper.also type in search box bose companion 3 computer speakers, factory service website. or customer service website

go to local.com in search box type Bose companion 3 computer speakers repairs & parts

if you think you can fix it yourself go to
www.tigerdirect.com and click on computer parts and then on audio input cables for a large selection of audio input cables.

You need to look carefully at your input cables, what type of connector jacks they have at each end and buy the exact same cable that has the exact same jacks an\t each end .
cables there are cheap, usually $1.00,2.00 & 3.00 but they also have expensive cables which are a waiste of your $. why buy a $15.00 cable when on the next page there is a $2.00 cable that will work just fine. It pays to look around for price before you buy.
But if you see a cable that will work, bookmark it so you can get back there,just in case you dont find a cheaper cable.

I have a Bose sound system companion series 3 ii and the lights just yellow and no sounds coming out and it turned red and no sound was still coming out.It was working fine about half a an hour ago



the drivers might have been corrupted by something or you might have got a virus run your antivrus program and test for a virus then
you might have to uninstall then reinstall either the sound drivers or the sound card make sure you have both of these devices baked up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver

Can't hear voice of singer on speakers, more of an echo sound


An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).

I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.

Hope this helps!

I use low wattage of transformer to my companion 5bose speaker now there is no sound what should i do.


Hi,

i suggest that you will stop using that low wattage transformer. Using that transformer might destroy your speaker. You should provide the right wattage which the speaker is requiring. Just look at the back of the speaker and you will the required wattage.
