I had the same problem as this, but have lost my remote, so the system is know useles. Any way back to the point if you wiggle the cable around that goes in the speaker zone port then turn it off and back on then it should work :-D.

Bose l1 crackle


Rotate the volume controls. Does this cause the crackle? Try working the controls through several turns up and down.
Also check that the lights on the top are not solid red. This would indicate that the inputs are clipping (the input signal is too strong) or the volume is turned up too high.
If that doesn't solve it call BoseĀ® Product & Technical Support at (877) 335-2673 (U.S. and Canada only)

My Bose remote turns on and off withthe comcast remote but the volume does not work unless I hitthe AUX button first. Does not work with the all button pushed.


Since multiple devices have volume controls you must inform the remote which device's volume you are changing. Just like the Power button. You wouldn't want everything in the room reacting to a generic command.

I'm a solo performer using mp3 backing tracks, a korg mutli effects for rock soloing and 1 mic for vocals all going through a mixer then outputed to Bose L1 Model 1. i. whats the best guitar effects...


You have several questions here and I'll do my best to help. While I'm not familiar with the "Bose" system I am performer that uses effects, mixers and etc. so....
1. Best effects to use. I would choose a small amount of guitar chorus and maybe a short digital echo, this is totally a matter of your choice, but in my experiecne, use as little as possible, you don't want to muddy up your sound
2. If your getting clipping, you have to much gain coming in, if you can you might try changing the settings on the "compressor" if you have such adjustments., or just turn down the output from your effects box a bit.
3. You didn't say what kind of mixer you are using, but typically your best off running your mic through the mixer, run the output of the mixer into a channel on the bose that has the graphic eq set to 0 or "flat", use the mixer to control treble, middle and bass rather than the bose amp.
4. Variation in volume of your backing tracks is an issue that you need to take care of before you play out. When you record your tracks, you need to either use equipmennt that will make the levels all the same, or sit with the system while it records and control the volume (with a mixer) as they are recorded, nothing ruins a performance more than profound changes in volume that override or dimish your main performant, (e.g. your vocals or lead riffs)
Let me know if you have further questions. good luck and Keep on Rockin

Pioneer vsx 1020 K receiver. I connected the bose 901 eq to the tape in and tape out but it doesn.t seem to be compatible.


It would be compatible if you ONLY listened to stereo ANALOG sources on ONLY Bose 901's. Engaging any device in a tape loop automatically disconnects digital sources. Bose Active EQ is not intended for anything BUT Bose 901's. The sub could be destroyed by it.

Lacking appropriate Front Left and Right volume-controllable pre-outs on the 1020k, you can't use the 901's for multichannel or digital source material unless you accept a severe compromise and get a separate amp for the 901's borrow mixed-down stereo from the Pioneer's Tape Out, run it through the Active EQ to the new amp and manually manage the external amp's volume.

You need Front Pre-outs.

Bose surrond sound not working...


Your TV may have a setting to make its Audio Output Variable or Fixed. That is, as you turn the TV's volume down or up it will either vary the output (as it seems to be doing in your case) or keep it Fixed so external electronics can still use it when the TV's volume is down or off. Some TV's do it another way - they have a selection to turn the TV's speakers OFF.

Cannot find a device code for ATT Uverse DVR cable box


1. Release the volume controls and assign them to the AUX: A. Press and hold AT&T Button and OK Button at the same time, release both buttons. All the mode keys will flash twice indicating you're in programming mode.
B. Enter 955 on the remote keypad, the AT&T key will flash twice indicating a correct entry
C. Press the mode key you want to alway receive the volume commands - I assigned mine to the AUX mode button. The mode key chosen will flash three times indicating success. Volume commands will now be delivered to the AUX button regardless of the mode you are in. 2. Assign the AUX to the BOSE system: A. Make sure the Boze remote receiver is powered on (green light is on). B. Press and hold the AUX Button and OK Button at the same time, release both Buttons. All the mode keys will flash twice indicating you're in programming mode. C. Enter the 4 digit BOSE code on the keypad, I used BOSE Remote Code 4000.
D. The AUX Button will flash three times indicating correct entry.

Bose Lifestyle 35 Accoustimass module rattles at high volume


Well to be hones 85 sounds pretty loud to me, generally the bose acoustimass module shouldnt really be distorting or crackling unless under extremely high sound levels.

It could possibley be that the speaker cone in the bass module has a slight perforation so it would distort at high levels. However other problems could be loose connections inside the unt or outside the unit. If your friend doesnt have it above 85 under normal circumstances I wouldnt worry to much about it but if there is a tear in the cone the problem could get worse.

Problem connecting Onkyo Amplifier to Bose Accoustimass speaker system


This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.

Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.

Regards,
Andrew
