I have been getting static on my Bose radio. When I turn the cord that is in the radio to the plug on the floor, it stops being staticy. Should I get a new cord?

The reason that it stops getting static when you move the cord is because you are acting as an antenna. This has nothing to do with the cord. You should probably place the radio closer to a window so it can get better reception.

FM radio works fine. AM radio worked fine when car was new but now it's like you're in a tunnel. Lots of static &/or weak signals. I have to turn up the volume very high to hear anyting on...

If you have window tint that contains metal sputter in it. That can cause interference on your fm/am signal strength. If that's the case change your tint to a carbon fiber tint that does not cause interfernce with your radio

We have 3indoor/outdoor speakers for deck-they are static

I would suggest moving them close to the base unit (if you havent already) to see if that improves the sound quality. If so, then you know you have some kind of interference in the area. Also, what output are you using from the BOSE? If you are using a headphone output or other variable output, you may be overloading the input circuit of the wireless base unit. Try turning down the volume on the BOSE or connecting to a different output.

Bose Wave Radio...DOA

Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check the service/repair page on their web site,, you'll find that they will repair most Wave units for $100 or give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price than the Bose.

AM static

the easiest way would be to move the radio farther away from the furnace.

Heavy static noise

Sounds like interference getting in caused by your connecting cables. Suggest upgrading to higher quality ones.

I had my older bose 321 hooked up through vcr and sounded great. Then hooked it up through directv receiver and sounded better. then switched from direct to comcast and hooked the bose up throught the comcast hd receiver and the volume is aweful. same deal, have to crank it up high. Since the stereo built into the tv sounds so much better I disconnected the bose and am going to sell it.
