Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.

I aquired Bose Acoustimass 15 surround sound through home purchase. Hooked wires up to reciever and hdmi to tv and i got nothing. my question is, how do you turn on the sub? just plug it in?


Hey Any chance you have the Acoustimass 15 II or III? The first Acoustimass 15 has a switch. The II and II models turn off and on when it receives a signal from the source you are using. Amplifier, ect. All you need to do is make sure everything hooked up correctly and plug it in.

Hi, I bought a Bose acoustimass 16 - 6.1 channel, iam curious to know which receiver is suitable for that.


I would get a receiver that puts out a little less power than the speakers can handle. This will prevent you from blowing them by sending too much power to them, but will still send enough power to make them sound good.
An example would be, if you're speakers have a combined power of 500 watts get a receiver around 495 watts or a little less.

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.

I am unable to get the required base sound from my Acoustimass 16


Read the clues - Out of Phase means you have one or more of the speakers wired minus (-) to plus (+) instead of like pole to like pole. Having any speakers out of phase with their counterparts can **** the bass response out of the room. Check your wiring.

Initial Bose Speakr Hook-Up Acoust 10-Denon RCVR


Hope this may help but you will disappointed. as heard from some pro, your amp will blow up the bose cube if direct connected to them, they are powering down your output to fit their tiny speaker. My understanding was you have to hook up everything to the bose module. They don't like to play with others.

Subwoofer blows the internal fuse when receiver is turned on


possible solution - this can be caused by a fault in the receiver unit. the sub has a triac 'high side switch' circuit that can cause the fuse to blow if it doesn't get a good switching signal e.g. if the receiver power supply is not running at the full voltage. check the plug pack wire for damage, check the 12v input area on the receiver board for dry joints, particularly the power input socket. hope this helps.-pj
