Question about Bose Lifestyle 12 System

1 Answer

No Sound from the speakers

Hi, I bought the system (Bose Lifestyle 12 System) in US and used it there for a couple of years. After moving to India where we have 240 V (as opposed to 110 V in US) I got a custom made transformer (240->110, 800W) and a stabliser.When I connected all the components everything switched on perfectly - sound video etc. but it used to switch off after some time. Once by mistake I switched on the system without the transformer - there was a sound and it got switched off. After that I am unable to get any sound from the speakers - I tried opening the woofer - the little cylindrical fuse appears to be ok (visual check). Any ideas what could have gone wrong? and how to fix it?

Please check if the AC cord of Acoustimass module has a good connection to AC outlet, also check all the connections specially the cable that goes to the system control unit jack, for your reference in the link below you can see and download the manual of your Bose system:

Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system


this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

Front bose speakers and bass module stopped puttimg put sound


If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

Hi when you turn on check all your speakers work check connections make sure the wire has no stray strands touching the fault could be in the sub unit this is possible / or your speakers one or more could have gone short circuit due to exessive volume thats if you play loud.
