SOURCE: Bose surround sound system cuts off

Hi when you turn on check all your speakers work check connections make sure the wire has no stray strands touching the fault could be in the sub unit this is possible / or your speakers one or more could have gone short circuit due to exessive volume thats if you play loud. Had a party lately .Just joking .Regards kirk

SOURCE: Black and White instead of color

Assuming you are using the VS-2 with your system. I have experienced the same problem when I fiddle with equipment. Each time it is due to the S-video plug from the VS-2 cable becoming loose or detached. Make sure every cord is re-inserted into the back of the LS 38.

SOURCE: bose acoustimass 25 subwoofer has no power

Honestly speaking you should probably not work on this unit yourself: "There are no user serviceable parts inside"

Even if you are an accomplished Electrical Engineer Bose will not provide the required schematics to troubleshoot and repair this unit.

Are you still undaunted . . . then if the case is the original LS-25 series, there is a hidden catch at the end of the cover furthest from the input connectors that needs to be rotated (until a plastic tab is sticking out), 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. Remove the two knobs from the side of the cover. Then hit the case with your fist at the far end (plastic tab) and the cover should then pop off. You may have to hit it hard, with an upward motion.

Note there is not going to be much you can do to fix this beyond replacing the fuse. (Note that the fuse may be 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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Integrated System (Bose Lifestyle) vs Component System

Better is a subjective term. Simpler vs complex is more accurate. I'd go for the separate components if conspicuity is NOT required and to allow unlimited future growth. Sub/sats have their place but nothing beats having full-range speakers alll around the room with some real horsepower to push them.

Blown power supply, what does it look like?


There's a power supply in the sub-woofer (acoustimass) module and an adapter module for the music center.
There are several different power adapters for the music center, and the different types are all depicted in the users manual here:
