SOURCE: The Media Center system doesn't work

Unplug the media center power at the rear power plug. Leave off for 20 seconds. Remove the AdaptIQ headsets plugged into the AUX input. Power the system back up but leave alone for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes come back and press the "open/close" button the wait 30 seconds or more for the tray to open. Be patient, the media center is processing a huge amount of data and needs time to respond to your commands. It is important to leave the media center undisturbed for approximately 10 minutes after running AdaptIQ setup. After about ten minutes, power down the power back up. You should be ready to go after that.

SOURCE: error code 10 during sound calibration

Please ensure that you have turned on the Accoustimass module, this can cause communication errors when calibrating. Also check that all connections are correctly plugged in as if one is not quite sat right this may give the error, just try unplugging them and plug them back in.

SOURCE: Bose - Custom EQ Error: 10

Hi, I have just had the same problem and the advice from BOSE was to turn everything off and disconnect the sub from the main unit, wait 10 mins and turn everything back on, making sure to turn the sub on first.

As it happens i then noticed I had connected the sub via the BOSE link speakers plug to the main unit rather than the correct "MAIN" socket. - so if you are reading this you know I am a fool! But the sound now works.

Basically BOSE confirmed the reason for error 10 is that the main unit is not detecting the sub and speakers.

Anyway, I hope my foolish mistake, helps save time and blushes for anyone reading this link.

Testimonial: "After 72 hrs off power, restarting he system results in perfect performance. I did not have time before today, so I still do not know how long the system needs to come to a reset off power. The manual only mentions a restart procedure, which was not adequate in this case. The problem seems not to be rare, so I think there should of course be an easier or quicker way to reset, available to the normal customer. More work to do for the Bose softwarecowboys!"

Went to shut off my bose system and got a message adaptiq A/B off. how do I get rid of the message


  1. Have you got the original Adapitq DVD disk? Try running the sound calibration routine again.

Volume goes up by itself


First, check your software firmware version and see if there is an update. If available read your manual how to do a firmware update using your USB port, if you don't have a manual, check Bose.com for their online manual and firmware updates. I had a different problem but the firmware update solved it. Another tip to increase the depth of your bass, while doing the adaptiq process, cover your bass speaker with a pillow, this will make your bass more deeper. You need a second person to cover your bass module with a pillow. in this way, the adaptiq process cannot hear the bass sound and it will increase the bass. You might need to do this several times until you get the desired bass sound. If you have not setup using adaptiq, your better off not using adaptiq, the sound is much better. Hope this helps.

When watching a DVD, the surround sound plays all background music but the actors voices are not heard - can hear music and voices in 2 speaker only - TV programs play in 2, 3, and 5 speaker mode.


If there is nothing at all from the center channel while watching a DVD, first try resetting the system (unplug the power cord from the sub, and the DC power cord from the media center for 30+ seconds) If a reset doesn't help this, run the "adaptIQ" setup disc again. Honestly, this is a very odd problem for that system to have. (especially since we know the center speaker works for other sources) I hope this helps.

Code 10


Hi, your problem seems to be related with the AdaptIQ failing to do an active equalisation. HAve you connected the AdaptIq sense headphones on the AUX (left and right coz it will still fail if only one cable is connected) Also make sure tha the sense headphone cable is in the correct color orientation and none is connected to the black jack just below the red one. Try this procedure and if the system still shows error 10 do the following in sequence...

1. Turn off the media center via the"ALL OFF" button in the tray (no DVD disc inside the tray)
2. Turn off the bass module by the power switch underneath the bass module (certain versions may not apply)
3. Unplug the power adaptor of the media center and remove the power adaptor connection from the wall socket.
4. Unplug the bass module (if this has not yet been done
5. Disconnect all speaker wires (satellite speakers I mean)
6. Disconnet the data cable linking the bass module and the media center
7. Allow 10seconds to pass
After 10seconds then connect the following again in this sequence

1. Connect the media center and the bass module data cable first
2. Connect the satellite speaker cables.
3. Connect the media center adaptor (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)
4. Lastly connect the bass module power cable (DO NOT TURN ON YET!)

Once verything is connected, press power "ON" button o nthe RF remote and the media center should turn on. Only the you should switch the bass module power "ON" so that a fresh handshake is achieved.

This ERROR 10 occurs when either the ADAPTIQ process is interrrupted, the data calbe link between the bass module and the media center is loose or when the power connection is interrupted.

If all still fails, then there is a problem with the DSP board of the bass module and would require servicing.

I do hope I was able to help you

Want to use double cube speakers with my Lifestyle 18 system instead of the single cubes.


Hi, sorry but that may confuse your Lifestyle system DSP board since they were programmed to set equalisation parameters specifically forthe signle cube speakers. But still if your insisting and do get hold of the double shot satellites, you may use them and probably do an ADAPTIQ calibration to reset the equalisation curve of he system with respect to the new doulbeshot satellites you have installed. Though any problem that may arrise in doing so may void your warranty.

Glad to be of service...
