Re: Speaker light in the back turns on(green) but no...
Well, I will try and help. If there was a problem with any of the innards, ie your amp. It's most likely that the red light would come on ar some horrible sound would be emitted from the woofer. reguardless if there was any input. But let's troubleshoot this anyways.
If you are using the low level input (RCA cable) try hooking it up to something else, if you can. This will determin if it is at all the sub or if it's your amp. Then try using the high input. This requires the speaker terminals in the back. If it works, then we know there is something wrong in the path of low level inputs. If it does not, then we know it has to do with either the connection terminal or something further inside.
You can open your amp and check the solder at all the pin contacts in and around the inputs. If they appear to look stable and sound (no breakage or cracks) start looking at the circuit boards for tall tale signs of anything burnt. If you know haw to use a multi-meter, I would suggest using it and start at one end and check everything. Even though they may not look damaged, a resistor can become bad. If the Capasitors are bad, there will most likely be some spillage coming from it. Becareful and unless you have done repair work before. Don't attempt to replace it. If you put it in wrong and get a reverse charge, it could/will explode.
Aside from that, I don't know what else to tell you. Hope it helps.

your sub woofer has only one input to make it work. plug in your rca cables into the back of the sub woofer and the other end into the audio out or subwoofer out put on the back of your surround system.
also has 2 speaker inputs so you can expand your speaker setup. plug thos in and you can hook up 2 speakers to th output on the back of the sub.
if ur amplifier have a pre out, then u can connect that to ur L/R input of ur sub woofer.
if not the only way is, connect ur amplifiers speaker output to sub woofers speaker input and then connect ur speaker to sub woofer speaker output terminal. remember don't inter change positive and negative wires.
if ur amplifier have speaker A,B connection then it is very easy. connect the speaker A to ur left and right speaker. then connect speaker B to ur sub woofer's left and right speaker input. be sure to make that speaker A and B switch is in on position. the power on both and check it. ( use good quality speaker cable to connect the sub woofer)
your sub woofer is designed to work , both at low level and high level input.
This might very well be a fuse - check by setting the sub woofer to "On" to see if it powers up. If it does, there may be a problem with the sub woofer audio cable(s) or connection(s).
Don't forget to check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse on the stereo's speaker output. If your sub is connected to a low level output - this shouldn't be a possible cause - as circuit breakers & fuses are usually on amplified (high level) or speaker outputs.
Another possibility is that the settings of the stereo has been changed from a *.1 system to plain stereo 2.0 or some other setting that disables the LFE (low frequency effects) or sub woofer audio output.
Do the same thing by unplugging the power, but also unplug the interface module (box with red/green LED light) from the sub woofer / bass module, and wait 30+ seconds. Plug the interface module back in first, and screw it in as tight as possible. Then plug the power back in and try the remote. This should fix your problem. :)
If this doesn't fix it, you will have to purchase/replace this module through Bose. (anywhere from $40-$60 if not under 1-yr warranty.) If you're still under warranty, it's a free replacement.
