Bose Companion 3 - Is getting power but no sound

I just replaced my old Harmon/kardon speakers with some new Bose Companions 3s. And needless to say they produce no sound. I have a more than adequate sound card with my Sound Blaster X-Fi Fata1ity, so Im quite puzzled as to why I can't get these to work. The sound controller lights up so I know it's getting power. And I've tried a lot of things to no avail. My know-how is exhausted, can anyone help me out?

Lost the power cable from subwoofer of my harmon Kardon


If you go to the Harmon/Kardon website, you can find where to buy replacement parts.

http://www.harmankardon.com/

Select product support on the front page, then go to parts.

Then select your product as Harmaron/Kardon SoundsticksII and select your country.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

Bose Companion 3. Speakers are very faint in sound. The touch pad seem inoperable. (the green light on pad does not come on.)


Check first that you have connected the speaker to the right output. For example on many computer there is an aux output marked in blue that can give you this problem.

If the problem does not depend from the source, then that sounds like an internal fault on your Bose system.

Leave the Bose unplugged from power and from computer for one hour, to get rid of electrostatic charges accumulated inside capacitors.
If that does not get rid of the problem, then there is an internal fault, either a short on speaker wiring, or a fault on the internal amp circuit board.

Left speaker sometines has no sound? Please help


I bought a set of Bose companion 3 speakers and the darn RCA jacks are cheap and wiggling loose. The cost to send back and repair out of warranty is about $125!! BOSE companion speakers may sound good, but for my money, I'd rather go with more reliable computer speaker systems like Creative or Logitech. BOSE IS WAY TO OVER-RATED, but HEY....they suckered ME out of $275!!!

Harmon Speaker distortion


Hi, I came across a similar problem with an old Altec and the the solution was to only replace the defective side. Actually, what was replaced was only the speaker itself inside the enclosure which was cheaper rather than replacing the entire assembly. An electronics technician (not necessarily a computer tech) can do the job since some soldering might be involved.
