Question about Bose Acoustimass 5 III System
Recently, I noticed that the bass was almost completely absent so I thought the amplifier had blown or had an impedance problem. I have checked the amplifier (Rotel ) and found it to be ok. I then connected my accoustimass 5 to another amplifier to be sure and the same problem occured. I have removed the rear panel on the sub woofer and cannot see any visible damage to fuses or any other part but I am not an electrical engineer! Has anyone experienced this problem before or will I end up sending my speakers (which are way out of warranty) back to Bose?
Any help very much appreciated!
I have solved my problem having called a local dealer. They suggested that the bass unit was connected out of phase. I was convinced that my connections were correct having labelled the speaker wires with coloured tape. However I reversed the connections on one channel and surprise, surprise the bass was restored. It's a no cost option so it has t be worth a try.
