When removing the side vented panel, remember to pull the treble and bass knobs off before hitting the grill. They just pull straight out.

Also the panel below the vented side is not glued on to the cabinet but uses a rubber gasget and therefore the electronics and speakers can be accessed without damaging anything simply by removing the screws .

There is a latch on toward the rear in the seam between the plastic and the larger wooden box. Turn the latch until it sticks out. Make sure the side nobs are pulled off first then....

pull very hard on the black pastic away from the plugs and it will come off.

    I quote: "On the end opposite of the jacks (top of the sub opposite connectors)
    in the exact middle, there is a ratchet looking device (flashlight and
    magnifying glass reveal the little culprit) with a very small flat
    screw driver rotate the piece CCW until a small tab is protruding from
    the middle. Pu the palm of your hand on the plastic case and give it a
    small whack (in the direction of the jacks) it will move about a 1.2
    inch. Lift straight up and the case will come off and reveal the
    connectors. Trust me, get a flashlight and magnifying glass and peer
    through the small crack between the cover and the box, you will see the
    little notch (encoder looking) rotating wheel
    "

    The instructions are not provided because they do not want users to open the device and do service on their electronics, and this is also against the low in many countries.

    The guy that published the manual is not really an expert.

    I will give you broad instructions on how to remove the cover, if the unit is under warranty (less than one year ld) do not open it, but call the service number on the user manual.

    I report the whole procedure, case is the same as Acoustimass 15: "Even if you are an accomplished EE Bose will not provide the required schematics to troubleshoot and repair this unit.



    Still undaunted then IIRC this is the same case as the original LS-25
    series and there is a catch at the end of the cover furthest from the
    input connectors that needs to be rotated, which you can do with a flat
    bladed screw driver, and you also need to remove a few screws from the
    bay where all of the connectors reside. Then tap the case with your
    fist at the far end and it should then slide off.



    Note there is not going to be much you can do to fix this beyond
    replacing the fuse. (Note that the fuse is soldered in.) The bass
    amplifier is op-amp based with discrete class G output stage and the
    twiddler amps are monolithics with discrete class G circuitry shared
    between several channels.



    The power transformer has a thermal fuse in it as well which is not
    replaceable. If you play the unit loudly for long periods of time and
    it is not adequately ventilated it is possible for the thermal fuse to
    open - if this is the case you will definitely need to send it in for
    service.



    When plugged in there are hazardous voltages present on the top PC
    board where the power connector is located, whether or not the unit is
    turned on.



    Power switching is via a triac controlled by whichever front end you
    have CD-5? 12V should be present on the mini plug (tip I think, but
    might be ring) when the music center is on..



    There is also offset detection circuitry that will latch the unit off should any output have more than a volt or so of offset.



    IMO This really is a job for Bose customer service. Sorry I can't be of
    more assistance, it has been a really long time since I left the
    company."

Is there a product like WD 40, only for stuck terminal tabs. Mine are stuck on Bose accoustimass 3 speakers . A terminal tab is pushed in, will not pop back out, and the wires will not stay...


Never use WD40 or any other petroleum product on anything electronic including the terminals. You may have to remove that terminal and repair or replace it. Good luck.

Error code 10 during sound calibration


Please ensure that you have turned on the Accoustimass module, this can cause communication errors when calibrating. Also check that all connections are correctly plugged in as if one is not quite sat right this may give the error, just try unplugging them and plug them back in.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE COVER TO BOSE ACCOUSTIMASS 15?


Your speakers are more than likely similar to my Pioneers. To do any work on them you have to very gently, with a tiny screwdriver, pry of the metal speaker grill evenly all the way around. If this is the case, take you time and be very patient as to not bend the grill. They are put in tightly so the sound doesnt shake them lose. At the service centers they usually just install new grills. Hope this helps. Steve

Bose Lifestyle 35 Accoustimass module rattles at high volume


Well to be hones 85 sounds pretty loud to me, generally the bose acoustimass module shouldnt really be distorting or crackling unless under extremely high sound levels.

It could possibley be that the speaker cone in the bass module has a slight perforation so it would distort at high levels. However other problems could be loose connections inside the unt or outside the unit. If your friend doesnt have it above 85 under normal circumstances I wouldnt worry to much about it but if there is a tear in the cone the problem could get worse.

Problem connecting Onkyo Amplifier to Bose Accoustimass speaker system


This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.

Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.

Andrew

Accoustimass 15 speaker problem


more than likely your speaker terminals are broke. Those type of terminals have springs inside to push them down onto wires. more than likely the terminals will have to be replaced.
