Question about Bose Lifestyle SA-1 Amplifier

Open Question

Bose Model 50 no speaker output

I own a Lifestyle Model 50 home system, with only 1 room being used out of 4 possible rooms. My wife decided to wipe the RF remote without going to "wipe screen" first. Since the cleaning, I have no output from the power amp. The CD player appears to work, as it's the only component which shows some response to manipulation of the remote control, but still no audio from any input. I have approx 14VAC from the power pack, and the 120VAC cable to the amp ohms out ok (<1ohm each leg, and the AC power source is approx 119VAC. The remote appears to function normally, and I removed power from the entire system, removed the batteries overnight, to no avail. She has done this in the past, and I have no idea how, but "Room B" was selected after she did it. As I understand it, additional rooms only show up on the remote if there are outputs connected to the master box. Help. The Super Bowl is coming soon!!

SOURCE: Bose amplifier does not work with a 6 speaker selector

your wall speakers may not be connected.... disconnect each speaker from the selector box and test with a small AAA battery to see if they are connected by putting the battery between each speaker's wires , you will hear it crackle ,then gradually connect each wall speaker onto the speaker connector box . If the first set does not work i suggest there may be a problem with your speaker selector box . Good luck

SOURCE: we have just installed a Bose lifestyle system,

Make sure you unplug your sa 2 and sa3 amplifiers after setting the codes. Wait at least 60 seconds, then plug back in. I would also unplug the in and out boselink cables as well. Once youve waited for a minute, then plug everything back in. Should work. If not, call Bose technical support. They are really great. I have 15 SA 3 amplifiers throughout my home. They are great.

Bose link AL8 will not connect with the Lifestyle homewide powered system


Your v35 system needs to be programmed to work with the second zone wireless unit. Read the instruction manual how to do it, or let a Bose dealer set it up for you.

Better sound through bose speakers?


If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

I have a Lifestyle 35 and want to replace head unit with a 5.1 receiver. The Bose subwoofer model LSPS uses a network type cable connector on the sub side and a male din plug on the head unit side of...


The entire 5.1 amplification system, in the Bose Lifestyle 35, is actually part of the Bose Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. The RJ-45 (network type) connector passes a low-voltage signal from the console to the Acoustimass module. If you were to hack the connection, and plug the speaker outputs of a 5.1 receiver to the RJ-45 socket on the Acoustimass module, you would blow the amplifier.

If you are really itching to replace the Bose Lifestyle 35 console with a regular 5.1 receiver, I strongly suggest you sell your Bose system, and purchase a Bose speaker system, such as the Acoustimass 10 Home Theater Speaker System, which is made for use with a standard 5.1 surround sound receiver.

If it's an original 321 system (series 1) then it has an audio output on the back. (via RCA jacks) You would still need an amp or receiver to connect the speakers to.. (unless they're powered speakers)
If it's a 321 series II or 321 series III- it does not have an audio output.
If the system has a DVD tray right in the middle of the media center, then it's a series 1.
Otherwise, you'd have to get a 1/8 splitter to come from your Mac's headphone output. (still- you will need an amp/receiver or powered speakers to have both 'rooms' playing the same thing from your computer)

Increase output of Lifestyle 18


apologies mate but what you hear at maximum volume (set volume to 99) is what the system can generate... The Lifestyle system are designed as stand-alone out-of-the box system and like other systems will only perform to their defined level. The only way is by using the AUX out (located behind the DVD/media center and connect either a pwoered loudspeaker or another amplifier (note that the output is fixed line so choose an amplifier with volume setting knob). with multiple loudspeaker of your choice. You may also go and buy expansions speakers from Bose itself

Again, glad to be of service...

Integrated System (Bose Lifestyle) vs Component System


Better is a subjective term. Simpler vs complex is more accurate. I'd go for the separate components if conspicuity is NOT required and to allow unlimited future growth. Sub/sats have their place but nothing beats having full-range speakers alll around the room with some real horsepower to push them.
