Loud hiss in bose multimedia speakers

I have a bose multimedia speaker system with bass unit and two satellites. Recently, I got them out of storage after two years. They now produce a loud hiss even when not plugged into my PC. The first time I plugged them in my PC after storage I left them on for about 15 mins and the hiss went away. I played a music CD and they sounded ok. The following day when I restarted my PC the hiss resumed, but this time it remained. I unplugged them from my PC but the hiss is still there and doesn't go away. Bose says they are unrepairable because they don't have parts for that model anymore. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the response Kev, but even when the unit is away from any potential electrical intereference there's still that loud hiss. There's definitely something wrong with the unit. What irks me most is that this thing is only about 10 or 11 years old and that Bose doesn't have the parts to fix it. Instead, they've offerred me a "upgrade" and will knock 25% off the cost of a new, more expensive system. It sounds like a big racket to me. A friend of mine encountered the same thing when one of his speakers had a failure.. they said the best they could do was offer him 25% on a newer system. I don't think I'm going to buy Bose anymore.

The speakers are to close either to a printer or the monitor this due tio the model of the multimedia speaker system.

I have four Bose 161 speakers and an Acoutismass 5 bass unit (original cubes are bad and replaced with the 161s). My Onkyo receiver started turning off and going into protect mode recently. Bought new...


you're going to need a ohm meter (good electrical testers have them) and make sure ohm ratings from speakers match the ratings for your receivers. Sounds like to much resistance for receiver(s)

Hissing from computer speakers and they are new


Hello
A hissing sound indicates the speaker amplifier has no input from the computer sound card, check to make sure the speakers are hooked up to the correct port for audio out to the speaker input, the Audio output to the speaker is the GREEN mini RCA jack on the back of the computer.

Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system


this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.


I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

Front bose speakers and bass module stopped puttimg put sound


If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

Low treble


I suspect that the speaker levels need to be set. You connected everything right - many people would not have connected the sats via the bass section (which has their high pass crossover and overload protection). But I am betting the HSU is turned up a bit on the high side.

Try this. Set all speakers to small, set all levels to 0. Play the receiver in stereo all mode. If the bass is strong, you need to turn the HSU down closer to a natural sound. Then use the speaker setup tone and adjust as needed.
