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.

Got error 10 and dont know what to do


from REalMacoi your problem seems to be related with the AdaptIQ failing to do an active equalisation. HAve you connected the AdaptIq sense headphones on the AUX (left and right coz it will still fail if only one cable is connected) Also make sure tha the sense headphone cable is in the correct color orientation and none is connected to the black jack just below the red one. Try this procedure and if the system still shows error 10 do the following in sequence...

1. Turn off the media center via the"ALL OFF" button in the tray (no DVD disc inside the tray)
2. Turn off the bass module by the power switch underneath the bass module (certain versions may not apply)
3. Unplug the power adaptor of the media center and remove the power adaptor connection from the wall socket.
4. Unplug the bass module (if this has not yet been done
5. Disconnect all speaker wires (satellite speakers I mean)
6. Disconnet the data cable linking the bass module and the media center
7. Allow 10seconds to pass
After 10seconds then connect the following again in this sequence

1. Connect the media center and the bass module data cable first
2. Connect the satellite speaker cables.
3. Connect the media center adaptor (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)
4. Lastly connect the bass module power cable (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)

Once verything is connected, press power "ON" button o nthe RF remote and the media center should turn on. Only the you should switch the bass module power "ON" so that a fresh handshake is achieved.

This ERROR 10 occurs when either the ADAPTIQ process is interrrupted, the data calbe link between the bass module and the media center is loose or when the power connection is interrupted.

If all still fails, then there is a problem with the DSP board of the bass module and would require servicing.

I do hope I was able to help you

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

Bose 'Double' Cube Speaker Came Apart


Carefully unsnap the speaker cover you may want to use a jewelers screwdriver or a small flat tip to assist with getting it off. Once its off unscrew the 4 screws completely and then carefully wiggle the speaker from he cube. Once the speaker is out of the way reach in the cube and reset the plastic coupling so its flush with the inside top of the cube. With both cubes on there sides and the rubber washer and swivel ring in place press the bottom cube, with your finger(s) inside the cube on the plastic couping, up into th top cube until you here or feel it snap into place. Once it snaps into place, adjust the insulation in the speaker then wiggle the speaker back into the cube and carefully put the screws back in. Once this is accomplished snap the speaker coverback on and that's it. It takes ten minutes once you get the speaker cover off.

Changing out my monitor speakers to bose cube speakers


You probably can do it as long as the speakers there now are 8 ohm speakers and you must use the bose bass module with the cubes because the crossover is built into the bass module for the cubes to work. If you just wire up the cubes you will mess the cubes up and they want sound right at all. The cubes are no good without their bass module in other words. Hope this helps.

Bose Cube Speakers separated


Ok…

I had the same problem with a Bose separated double-cube Acoustimass speaker/array but was able to fix it as follows:

Tools:
small, thin, flat-head screwdriver
large pliers
C-clamp

Instructions:
1. Disconnect the speaker wires from the cube.
2. Remove the grille from the top speaker cube. It just pops off.
3. Insert a small, thin, flat-head screwdriver around the perimeter of the speaker. You will have to pry lightly to break the glue’s seal.
4. Using a set of pliers (large, plumber-sized) wiggle the speaker until it comes free. You might need to grip it top to bottom and then left to right. The speaker will come free of the case.
5. Remove the white insulation to get a clear view of the dislodged brace/connector.
6. Stack the top and bottom cubes. Make sure that the rubber seal between the cubes is seated properly and that the black and white cables are not pinched.
7. Using the C-clamp, compress the brace/connector until it seats on one side. Loosen the C-clamp and compress the opposite side. The brace/connector should snap into place. Be sure the make sure that you do not pinch the speak wires that are running through the center of the brace/connector.
8. Test the articulation. It should be the same as your other speakers.
9. Replace the white insulation in the back of the speaker case.
10. Press the speaker into the case’s face. If you wish, you can apply your preference of glue to the edge of the speaker prior to pressing it into the case.
11. Snap the grille onto the speaker.
12. Connect the speaker wires to the cube and you are done.

You should be good to go.
