Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, the 14 seconds interval is significant. This is indicative that whatever fault it is, it is coupled to a time-based circuitry. The time-based circuitry need not be complicated. it can actually be a simple resistor/capacitor network. The capacitor takes a certain amount of time to charge and then discharge (14 seconds, 'whoomp'). Having said this, then the foremost suspect would be an electrolytic capacitor, probably low value (1~4.7uF), probably a coupler/decoupler. Of course the capacitor serving other functions could very well be the culprit as well.

Corrective measure would entail, identifying/determining which capacitor and replacement. Tedious as it may sound, each capacitor would then have to be tested for capacitance and leakage out of circuit or at least 1 leg un-soldered.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

SOURCE: I have Bose Companion 2 Series ones and the left makes odd noises

> I turn the volume to a low it still has the odd noise
If there is any drive to the speaker at all (volume not turned off), the rattle is probably coming from a broken 'surround;' the part that keeps the cone centered around the outer edge.
Another point of failure is a structure called a 'spider' that is located between the voice coil and cone that ensures the voice coil stays centered.
If there is hum with the volume turned completely down, the amplifier driving the speakers (internal or external) has a failing filter in the power supply.

Hello Adam Hi, it looks like your main IC amplifier inside the main bass box is bad, need to replace that IC. What are your plans, do you want to do the repair or have it service by a tech guy.

Using a knige or razor blade, lift the edge of the rear sticker up. Do this evenly and you will fnd all the screws that hold it together. Take your time and you can put the sticker back down.

I have set up a BOSE Accustimass System with my STR de485 receiver. How do I adjust the treble/bass?


hi,
if u are using bose speaker system then remember one thing. go to speaker setup and select all the speakers as large not small. then only u will get a good tone. bose speakers will handle the output power of ur amplifier.
u can only adjust the bass and treble of ur frond Channel speakers. for that
select multi channel surround sound and the increase and decrease the bass and treble
ok

How do I use the remote to cont bass & treble for rxv-657 reeiver


No, Tone controls are on the front of the unit only. If your passing video thru the unit you can go into the setup menu from the harmony and adjust all the sound parameters that way "on screen" The only "EQ" capabilities are for the Center channel only. You can adjust "speaker size". "Large" setting will give you a little lower response. "Small" will crossover the speaker at "100hz" That's about as far as tone adjustment goes on this unit. Hope this helps

Cinemate bose how do I adjust base and trebble


If the system doesn't have controls labeled "bass" and "treble" - or if there are no clever presets like "Hall", "Theater", etc., then you'll have to adjust these parameters before the signal reaches the speakers. One way is to purchase a graphic equalizer to hook between the speakers and the signal source. A graphic equalizer a basically a tone control, with the spectrum divided into 10 or more "slices" instead of 2 (bass and treble). Consider the sliders on the left as "bass", and the ones on the right as "treble". If you're using these speakers for a computer, some sound card software has these controls buried beneath a few menus - but sometimes not. The easiest solution is to buy an equalizer and hook it between the signal source and speakers. Bose is typically "audiophile" equipment, and many audiophiles don't want tone controls (thus the extra electronic processing required) to contaminate the signal. Obviously, most systems do need to offer some control to the user, as you've discovered!

Bose home theater


It may not have bass and treble controls, since most newer TV's now have these adjustments. Play around with your TV and see if you can find bass and treble adjustments from the remote.

Low treble


I suspect that the speaker levels need to be set. You connected everything right - many people would not have connected the sats via the bass section (which has their high pass crossover and overload protection). But I am betting the HSU is turned up a bit on the high side.

Try this. Set all speakers to small, set all levels to 0. Play the receiver in stereo all mode. If the bass is strong, you need to turn the HSU down closer to a natural sound. Then use the speaker setup tone and adjust as needed.
