Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System
Today my friends Accoustimass module tipped over and hit the wood floor pretty hard when we were hooking it up in his new house. When we finally got everything connected and turned it all on, we put in a DVD that had a THX sound demo at the beginning. When the bass tried to max out the sub starting crackling and breaking up. We had the volume at around 85 at that time. When we reduced it to 75 it hardly breaks up. But it seems to me it shouldn't even at the higher volume. Is it possible something got damaged when it fell over on the floor? Or is it likely that you can't run it at a volume of 85? He's had it for several years and had it in an apartment and probably hasn't typically had it over a 65 volume setting. It was my fault it fell over and I'm trying to determine if it broke today or if it's probably always been that way and he didn't know it.
Well to be hones 85 sounds pretty loud to me, generally the bose acoustimass module shouldnt really be distorting or crackling unless under extremely high sound levels.
It could possibley be that the speaker cone in the bass module has a slight perforation so it would distort at high levels. However other problems could be loose connections inside the unt or outside the unit. If your friend doesnt have it above 85 under normal circumstances I wouldnt worry to much about it but if there is a tear in the cone the problem could get worse.
