Not good surround sound Is the bose lifestyle 5 support 5.1 surround sound?


The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.

Bose surround sound system cuts off


Hi when you turn on check all your speakers work check connections make sure the wire has no stray strands touching the fault could be in the sub unit this is possible / or your speakers one or more could have gone short circuit due to exessive volume thats if you play loud. Had a party lately .Just joking .Regards kirk

Sound Quality


Preferential Quality Connections in order of higher quality are: 1st>HDMI, 2nd>DVI, 3rd>Component/S-Video, 4th>Composite Video. Make sure you only use the surround setting on 1 of the 2 components, which ever is of better quality. If you use them both it WILL sound like mud. (older receiver-newer tv>probably tv) but you must connect all tv audio channel outputs to receiver. (newer receiver-older tv>receiver would be better)
Receivers also tend to have more wattage to drive larger speaker loads than most TVs. The key is to turn off the surround and SRS functions on the TV if you use the surround decoders on the receiver. Either way you use it, make sure you use the set-up feature to balance the outputs of the various channels for either source (the levels of the two will probably be very different).

Hooking up video


I am assuming that you are using a surround sound system?If so on the back of the satellite receiver you will have RCA cables labled yellow ,red,white uuse an rca cable to run from the output on the back of the sat box to an rca input on the surround sound unit.the inputs should be labled on the back of the surround sound unit.once you have the sat box plugged in look for the output on the surround sound (rca cables) run one set of rca cables to the rca cable input of the Tv.on the original tv remote select the tv input that is the cable from the surround sound is plugged in to . make sure the surround sound unit input is selected to the input that the sat box is plugged into.this will give you surround sound from your satellite receiver,repeat with your DVD player plugging the DVD rca cable output to another empty input on the surround sound.to switch between the sat box (satellite TV) to DvD select another input on the surround sound unit.Try to correspond the units you are plugging into the surround sound to the correct name of the component on the back of the surround sound unit to avoid confussion.any questions,Im here to help.If this works rate me FIXYA! if it helps.GOOD LUCK!

Tape deck does nothing when play is pressed


Maybe a problem of no power to motor. I own 2 identical Aiwa units, both have tape deck problems. This brand is prone to them They also have nasty habit of tape cassette doors jamming.
1st off you never said how old the unit is. Awia have huge amount of models. Mine are the NX series that came out in black plastic. Most of the others are silver/grey. Honestly, unless you pop side screws and lift the cover off to eyeball anything loose. and none is? And if out of warrenty, the value of fix, mat exceed value of unit.
Sorry, but I see many of these,  of 4-5 yr old units Aiwa brand,
get the heave ho! 
The most stupid thing about this is: for units size, has the best sound of any other brand it's size.. Brilliant for hooking to ones TV sets, for  surround sound!
What I did was get an older getto blaster  that plays tapes to play my tapes on. some of these units are around and in good order, dirt cheap. And most electronic equipment problems cost at least $35  just to have a quick look at your unit.. cost of repair on top?  I brought my 1st one new @ well over a grond. 3 yrs later, 2ns one, exactly the same $15.00 in a charity shop. The  laser unit was dusty. All go in half an hr. Perhaps if it is an older model , look for another mate to it,   It all comes down to costs.
Which is better option... you are the one who has to made the choice. Good luck. Jamz
