Trying to change speakers from B & O to BOSE

Can you tell me if it is possible to change large speakers on a Beocenter 9000 to Bose bookshelf speakers? I understand some sort of converter would be necessary IF it is a possibility. I've been trying to get answers to this for some time, even the B & O people in San Francisco (nearest retailer) were not able/willing to help. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The Beocenter speakers were not lower, but Bose says I could not do this.

All you need to do is to measure or look up the impedance of the speakers on the Beocenter 9000. Most speakers are either 4 or 8 ohms. Now measure or look up the impedance ot the Bose speakers. If the Bose speakers are the same or a lower number than the Beocenters, you are good to go. But, if the Beocenters speakers are a lower number than the Bose, then you should not switch speakers.

    This is good. Now just hook up the speakers wires up to the reciever and it should work fine.

I just bought the ipod nano 6th generation and it will not charge in the Bose docking system....my old one charges with no problem.....is there a fix for this? The nano plays fine it just wont charge


If it is a different model iPod then it is likely the Bose dock does not support the newer model. Quite often changes such as from iPhone 3 to iPhone 4, Bose had to release a new dock. The speakers and music will still always work, but the support will be limited for charging. Unfortunately you will not be able to fix this, other than upgrade the dock, or go back to your old ipod.

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.

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.

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

Bose Wave Radio/CD - Sound from only one speaker


Sounds like the audio transformer, but it's difficult to tell because Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.
