Bose Acoustic Wave music system popping speaker

Hi, I have an old bose aw-1 stereo and after using it for about 20 minutes the left speaker begins to make a loud popping sound and no music. I opened it up and checked all the connectios, everything seemed fine. I called bose and they will not fix it, but offered a discount on a new radio. I'd rather fix my old radio instead of paying 600 for a new one. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know, thanks.

Had the same problem on the same machine 15 or so years ago...took it to the Bose factory shop in Framingham (or real close )Massachusetts, and they fixed it in 20 minutes...cost around $50...at the time they said it was a real common problem, and an easy fix.

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?


Hi,
Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

I have a bose acoustic wave,single disc model CD-3000. The CD is not working,the CD spins but won't play. The radio works great.


Had the same problem. Mine the cd drive got out of alignment. Sorry to say the fix is to have it replaced. BOSE will do this for about $150. Typically this includes the one year service agreement, a full system "tune up" and a one year warrenty.

Call BOSE and they will take care of you.

Adding turntable to bose music wave system


Hiya, sad to say it wont work even with the correct plugs. If you really need/want to get it going, you will need a RIIA pre amp to use to convert the turntable levels to an acceptable level for the bose. Once you have that, then get the correct matching plugs for the bose (sames guys that supply the preamp should be able to help). Suggest a google search in your area "RIIA PREAMP" and see who supplys.

Best of luck

CD's skip, then completely stop playing on my 1999 acoustic wave


Sounds like a maintenance issue - try cleaning the disc lens using a standard disc lens cleaner (you can buy in many high street stores) or using a lint-free cloth on the glass eye.
Otherwise, contact Bose.
