Hi you may need to have your unit serviced for the AM coil may have already been misaligned or the Crystal oscillator has laready failed due to aging.

Glad to be of service...

How do I improve my reception on a Bos Wave Radio with single CD player


The Bose uses its power cord as an antenna. The cord has to be stretched out (not coiled) to pick up stations. It also helps if it's oriented the right way -- try changing the direction (having the cord running east to west, say, instead of north to south). Moving the radio and the power cord closer to a window can help, too, especially in a commercial building. These structures often have a steel frame which can block radio signals. If all the above fail, your best bet is to buy an indoor FM antenna, which can be as simple as a piece of wire made into a dipole antenna or as fancy as one of the Terk mini-towers with built-in amp. Bose sells one for their radio, though it's kind of expensive for a simple length of wire. You can get the same thing from Radio Shack, but if you do, be sure to pick up their adapter (catalog 278-257) to plug it into the non-standard Bose jack. All together you'll spend half what Bose wants. Move it around like you did the power cord and you should see a big improvement.

Antena for bose radio?


The Bose uses its power cord as an FM antenna. Make sure it's reasonably stretched out (not coiled), and is not in surroundings that shield it from the outside (a steel frame building, though even here putting it close to a window can give you reception). If this isn't enough to get stations clearly, there is a jack on the back of the radio where you can plug in a dipole (piece of wire) antenna available from Bose -- not cheap for what it is -- an indoor antenna from Radio Shack or a similar store, or even a roof-mounted unit. If you don't buy from Bose, you'll need an adapter to convert from the standard plug everyone else uses to the phone jack Bose has decided to use instead. Radio Shack sells one: catalog 278-257.

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

Clock is in military time mode. How do I reset to regular? Also I want to preset radio stations and I've lost my manual.


Here is your manual in PDF format:

http://www.bose.co.uk/GB/en/images/Wave%20Radio%20CD_tcm6-4104.pdf

To set AM/PM (12 hour) or Military (24 hour) time - With the system off, hold down Alarm Setup and press On/Off to switch between AM/PM (12 hour) and Military (24 hour) time formats.

To preset up to 6 AM and 6 FM stations - Use the Track/Tune buttons to find the desired station. Then, on the control panel only, hold down any Preset button until the preset number lights. The station is now preset to that number.

How good is fm tuner reception? We live approx 50 miles from transmitters and have trouble getting clear signals. Is Bose just good sound quality, or does tuner provide superior reception?


I live in Vail Az about 110-120 miles from Phoenix Az I can pick up 60% of the stations decent. The power cord acts as a fm antenna. Plus this Bose Wave CD/MP3/FM

Bose wave radio static only


Try replacing the battery (turn it over, have a look on the bottom there will be a door for a battery) and then trying it. Alternatively connect a aerial as it sounds like a reception problem.

How do I make my alarm on my Bose Wave Radio play the FM Radio instead of the usual beeping noise?


Hi,

When you choose the alarm button on the back row of buttons in the middle you get 4 options, no alarm, beeping, music, beeping & music. These are represented by icons on your front panel the note and the ))) sign.
