Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System

1 Answer

I have a bose Lifestyle 5 music center. I previoously asked what may cause no out put to the sub and was told to replace R428 on the back side of the control module (not the sub) The person stated it was under the control jack and was a flat pack resistor. OK done with that. The flat pack resistor next to it is toasted. I dont think the 330 ohm was the problem. Problem is, when I desoldered the (220ohm-270ohm???) the trace on the board has literally nothing to solder to. What does the 220ohm or 270 ohm (cant tell) attach to? I may have to run a small wire to replace the trace but cant tell where it goes

If the circuit board has a charred area, you have another problem besides the resistor. A short or overload likely caused the resistor to burn. Probably a blown output transistor(s) or chip(s), which generally short when they fail. This creates an overload in the circuit which burns up the load resistor - probably.

I have a Bose powered sub woofer, which I would like to connect to a pioneer receiver, the subwoofer (model 2683) connection has a four pronged connection (yellow white red blank) and the receiver has a...


Hi,sorry but you can not connect it directly like other sub-woofers..
Bose 2683 Powered Subwoofer is part of Bose Lifestyle 5 system, Please note that you will need the 5-pin DIN cable that connects the subwoofer to the base or "Music Center". and the 4 pronged connections for its own stereo speaker output not input from another stereo..
Sorry....but if you can arrange some handy man nearby ,he may get into the DIN cable to locate the subwoofer signal 2x input leads than you can use that leads for connecting into single sub woofer out let of your system...otherwise try to sell BOSE which can easily buy brand new up to date powered sub..

Need to hook up bose lifestyle 5 music center to comcast cable sony braveo tv and sony dvd. was hooked up until move do not find manual


I'm in a similar situation where I am hooking up a TiVo Premiere, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, and a LG 47LH90 TV to an old Bose Lifestyle 5 Music Center. After reviewing all of my connectivity options, I've come to settle on the fact that my TiVo will connect via the "Video" input on the Music Center (via red/white RCA). The Blu-Ray player will connect to the "AUX" input on the Music Center. And I'll just have to switch between Video and AUX modes for what I'm watching at the time.

Same same here!


Any readily available Stereo RCA to Mini cable. These cables are a in stock item at any electronics store.
Plug Mini side of cable into ipod headphone jack and the RCA side of the cable into any available input on the Bose system, match color for color, Red to right and White to left. Select that input on your Bose system and use the ipod as normal. This is the cost effective solution.
The better choice is to use a after market ipod dock system such as DLO http://www.dlo.com/products/homedoc_dx_Prod.tpl there are several levels to chose from all the way to HD outputs. These units can put your ipod display on your TV screen.

I cant adjust the volume on my BOSE 1-2-3 home theater without the sound kicking off. if i switch to aux. or video-2 then back to video-1, the sound comes back on......


I went to the Bose website and they suggested resetting the system:

1) Turn off the system.
2) Unplug the sub-woofer power cord from the wall.
3) Unplug the sub-woofer to control head cord.
4) Wait several minutes.
5) Reconnect the system.

It seems to have worked for the short term. The Apple store told my wife that she had to power down her iPhone once in awhile to give the microprocessor a chance to cold start, clearing registers and such. It may be the same thing here.

Hooking up the sub


To connect the passive sub you have to connect the provided wires to the receiver then to the sub's inputs and from the sub's outputss to the cube speakers. It seems complicated but you'll see that is very easy if you lokk at the sub's connection panel.
Hope that i helped...
