I have a Bose acoustimass 6 system that I recently just installed in our new home. I have owned this system for several years and it has always worked fine. However, now it does not detect, nor is there sound from the left front speaker. I have tried the speaker in the other channels and it works fine, and I have tried the other cube speakers in that channel and none of them work. Is there a fix anyone can recommend or do I need to bring it in to be looked at? Thanks, Doug Moore

SOURCE: Left Channel Not Working.

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.

How do you know the receiver's Left channel isn't the fault? Sounds like a source issue.

I have a Bose Acoustimass 6 Series III the receiver is Yamaha 3066, this system is a 5.1 surround sound. Then I bought a pair of Bose 901 Series VI Direct/Reflective speaker system with active equaliz


The setup is possible, but with several compromises. First off, to use the active equalizer, you'll need to insert this into one of the 2 channel AV channels limiting your listening with the equalizer to stereo only. The acoustimass subwoofer acts a driver/power regulator for the little cube speakers. It probably will not be able to drive the 901s at the correct level when attached to the Acoustimass unit as front left/right speakers. You could try running a dedicated set of speaker leads to the 901s which may work and still allow surround sound, but you'll lose the equalization capability on the 901s.

I was having this very same problem. I finally figured out that I was getting feedback to the system because my TV cable coming into the house wasn't grounded right.

Better sound through bose speakers?


If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

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 have a bose Lifestyle Series II System which i have enjoyed for years. My son recently tried to hook his I-Pod to it. now i cannot get it to work. Any ideas?


Hi.

The system may have gone on protect mode after detecting a problem.

Try disconnecting the power cord from both subwoofer/amp (Acoustimass), and from main control unit.

While the two units are disconnected, check the control cable from main unit to subvoofer, and check all the speakers connections.

Leave system disconnected for about fifteen minutes, then connect back first control cable, then power to Acoustimass (keep it off) and finally, power to control unit. Turn everything on and see if the system is starting.

If the system is still not starting, then there is an internal fault. In that case call Bose at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Can i connect my bose 5.1 speaker system to my pc directly without using a separate stereo receiver? my pc has a 5.1 hifi with optical sound card and an 800w psu.


no it can not. the sound card in your computer has no power behind it, only a signal. the acoustimass needs power from an amp. you can connect your computer to a home theater reciever and get what you are trying to do, with a simple 3.5 to rca cable.
