Everything can be repaired. You would have to expose the speakers to see what the cracking is about. There are usually abundant drivers and foam repair kits available on eBay.

Your volume amplifier is either gone bad or you have a blown speaker itself.

Cd does not play


Does the radio work? If not, make sure the volume is up. If so, the speakers are not blown. Return your product.

My Bose wave radio with aux. for attaching to a CD player stopped working. I tried plugging it different places. It is an old system.


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. Check your options before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a problem prone Bose.

Hubby purchased the BOSE Wave system (radio/cd) last year at this time. Discoverd last month that the CD player will no longer work. Radio plays fine. We have disconnected power plug and tried severeal...


Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

No sound


PLUG IN YOUR HEAD PHONES IN - do you get sound ? If you do Get sound from your headphones it could be that your speakers blown and would recommend Bose to take a look if still under worrentee. if NOT You could still get it covered by domestic general find them at this link https://www.domgen.com otherwise if you dont want to pay for a repair take a look yourself - get a screw driver open up the case as best as you can look at the speakers, you may well find that you have a dry joint or a cable could have come disconnected if so solder it back on and you've FIXED IT! hope this helps. if it does OR IT DON'T, please leave feedback Anyway cheers raverbaby
