Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

1 Answer

Bose 3-2-1 When I change channels on my cable box I lose the volume (from the bose). I have to either turn the bose on/off or wait for it to resume and it takes a few seconds. It is very annoying. I checked all my connections and called Bose - they say it's a cable problem - but I don't believe that. My Bose now shows 1+1 sometimes instead of 2.0. When the unit was new I never had that problem. It's about 2 yrs old now.

Get the free upgrade CD from BOSE and it will solve most of the problems when the program is loaded.
Its not a cable problem...tinkering with the cables will make the connections loose.

Sa3 bose not sound from boselink but external input yes


It depends on the Bose system you connected with the amp and the type of Bose remote you are using?Does the indicator LED at the rear of the amplifier stay solid green when you press the ON button on the remote?If not,check that your room code setting on the remote correspond with the micro switches setting at the rear of your amplifier.

Change from 2.0 to 5.0


Sounds like your Cable box audio settings are outputting two channels (stereo) instead of five channels (surround). It could be on an automatic setting, meaning whatever the digital audio stream coming from the TV channel is, your Bose system will play audio in that config. Hence why it changed from 5.0 to 2.0.
Go into your Cable box audio settings and change the output to Dolby Digital (or similar). You will also need to be connected via a digital optical cable from your cable box to your Bose 321 to output true digital audio.
If you post the make and model of your cable box I might be able to give you more direct instructions on how to do this if your still having trouble.

I am trying to hook by Bose 123 to my Panasonic Vestra 3d tv. I have the cable connected but I am not getting anything


To view a DVD in the Bose system on the TV, connect an HDMI cable (or composite-Yellow, Red, White) to the back of the Bose system (output) and the other end to the input on the back of the TV.

If you have a cable box or satellite and want to get the audio on the Bose system, connect an RCA (white and red) cable to the back of the Bose system (input) and the output on the back of the cable box/TV/satellite.

Switch channels on Bose as needed. Good luck!

The sound/volume is not working properly on our Bose 321 system...i.e., whereas, a "normal" volume at (let's say) 35-40 is way loud, but now have to turn volume up to 100 (maximum) to be able to...


Make sure the device it is connected to has its audio properties setup correctly. If this is a cable or satellite box, most of them have a volume output level. Changing this will change overall volume.

If your remote worked everything for a few weeks and then quit, and you are sure the codes are correct, take the remote back under the 1 year replacement warranty and exchange it. It is defective.

Your TV output is a pass-thru from the coax cable then. The only solution- turn the volume down, or unplug them.. Or get a cable box. A VCR may work as a temporary cable box, and if you have a remote for it, you should be able to just turn off the audio at any time with a VCR remote. (unless the VCR also has a pass-thru only audio output)

Am setting up a bose GSX 3-2-1 home theater


simplist solution, if the TV has an audio output just run that to the Bose system.
what type of TV are you connecting to?
Is the cable box an HD or digital box?

VOLUME ISSUE


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.
