The terminal springs have weakened or are choked with dirt. Replacement could be the only practical solution.

SOURCE: Bottom won't come back out after pushing in for connection .

sometimes when you push the cable in i have seen folks get the cable into to far and then the conduit part is inside the connector also and the button will not come back down, make sure you only have the striped part inside the hole. if that does not work you might have to take a jewelers flat screwdriver and pry it down a little, either one should work. if not then either take speaker back to factory if under warranty or remove speaker and change the button. try the first one then the next one them the two common ones. good luck and let me know.

SOURCE: Can I connect my Bose Acoustimass 5 - Series II to Bravia unit?

Yes, there should be no issues using your Bose speakers with your Sony receiver. Sony has a "hookup guide" to help here -

SOURCE: How do I connect my Acoustimass® 5 Series III

Well, first of all this speaker system is designed to give you a subwoofer where you do not have a sub-woofer output on your receiver/amp. However, that is not the case with the Onkyo. The way I would set it up (only because of the speakers you have) according to the Acoustimass Manual. You take the left and Right "Speaker" outputs to the Left and Right input on the Acoustimass and the speakers crossover does the rest. The Onkyo is designed to have a powered subwoofer so in this format you would just tell the receiver to turn off the sub channel which would tell the Onkyo to send the low end to LR. That should do it.

My son was playing with the speaker cube and the push button, internal springs, and clips fell out. He tried to fix it himself and pushed the button back into position. I need to get the button out a


Have your son "play" with it again, or at least have him show you what he was doing when it "fell" out, he may have stumbled on the technique, but chances are a tab has broken off meaning it should be easier to remove now. Good Luck!

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Bose audio input receiver cable 15 pin


You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.

Do I have to have a powered bass module to make the cubes work?


Your Acoustimass 5 is a powered sub with powered surround speakers. If you are not getting sound output, the internal fuse may be open and you will have to replace it. Bose used a heavy multiple output cable terminated in a miniature DIN plug to connect speakers. You may be able to find one on eBay.
