Hi sorry but what do you mean that you have lifestyle 18 system? The lifestyle 18 system consist of the media center/DVD player, the bass module, the satellite speakers and the RF remote control (aside from tons of cables)

If you have the media center/DVD only, then you require the power adaptor. you can test if the media center is functioning if the LCD display is working. you can also connect an external powered speaker or an amplifier fro mteh AUX out behind the media center.

Do note that doing so will only give you limited control of the system since you require the whole lot to make everything work properly.

Glad to be of service.

I have the lifestyle v25 system but my wife does not want to use the bose sound all the time. She says she doesn't need 5.1 when watching hgtv. Can you help.


Help how? Change her mind?

If the TV has speakers and IT has basic audio coming in directly from your (presumed) Cable Box, use the TV speakers.

I try to plug apple TV to my Bose sytem lifestyle 20. The apple TV is plugged by hdmi on my TV (hdmi2). The apple tv image is good but the sound is coming from my tv not from my bose system. i decided to...


You might want to try connecting the Apple TV to your TV using HDMI, then using the optical cable from your TV to your Bose system. In your TV's settings, there should be an Audio Output option. You'll want to turn off the TV speakers. Optical audio can be a little strange compared to traditional analog. If your cord is going bad, it could result in behavior like you described.

What speakers can I use with a Bose Lifesyle 28 AV 18? I'm being told that there isn't anything other than the original factory speakers? This can't be right?


Bose work best with Bose speakers. It doesn't mean that you can't use other speakers, Just match the impedance (2 or 4 or 8 Ohm)

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

Increase output of Lifestyle 18


apologies mate but what you hear at maximum volume (set volume to 99) is what the system can generate... The Lifestyle system are designed as stand-alone out-of-the box system and like other systems will only perform to their defined level. The only way is by using the AUX out (located behind the DVD/media center and connect either a pwoered loudspeaker or another amplifier (note that the output is fixed line so choose an amplifier with volume setting knob). with multiple loudspeaker of your choice. You may also go and buy expansions speakers from Bose itself

Again, glad to be of service...

No sound from rear speakers on the lifestyle 18


The SL2 works in such a way that the speaker satellite out put from the bass modules is fed to the input of the SL2 transmitter (remember, transmitter) then the sattellitespeakers are connected at the other end of the room to the receiver. An initial blinking green light should be seen and once the system is turned on this turns into steady green. Both the SL2 transmitter and receiver operates via WIFI.

Center speaker static noise


Sorry sp106s, you have to take that to bose service center.
Its a complicated problem. Something is wrong in the amplifier
section inside your sub box. Only authorize servicemen can
open it, not any tech'n can.

Good Luck
