Bose Lifestyle 5 not playing rear/surround speakers

I have hooked everything up as it should be (have owned a few of these before). The two speaker and three speaker button on the remote works fine, however nothing when 5 speaker is selected. I have also tried increasing the rear volume using the remote, but still no sound from the rear speakers. I have also tried another remote to select 5 speaker, still no rear sound. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Thank you for your quick response. I only see one amplifier in the subwoofer. Is there a componant on the board that links the rear speakers? I wasnt able to find a fix or discription of this issue.

    Thanks. I guess I will have to live with only the fronts and center playing since I could not find a fix for the rear amp.

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.

I have a Lifestyle 35 and want to replace head unit with a 5.1 receiver. The Bose subwoofer model LSPS uses a network type cable connector on the sub side and a male din plug on the head unit side of...


The entire 5.1 amplification system, in the Bose Lifestyle 35, is actually part of the Bose Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. The RJ-45 (network type) connector passes a low-voltage signal from the console to the Acoustimass module. If you were to hack the connection, and plug the speaker outputs of a 5.1 receiver to the RJ-45 socket on the Acoustimass module, you would blow the amplifier.

If you are really itching to replace the Bose Lifestyle 35 console with a regular 5.1 receiver, I strongly suggest you sell your Bose system, and purchase a Bose speaker system, such as the Acoustimass 10 Home Theater Speaker System, which is made for use with a standard 5.1 surround sound receiver.

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

No sound from rear/ surround speakers on Bose V20


Yes, very easy and cheap if you get it from the right place. Fiber Optic going from the output of the device to the input of the receiver. If your lucky enough to have an input/output fiberoptic in your tv, run the fiber from the device to the tv input, fiber the output of the tv to the receiver so not only are you getting the device full surround sound, but you'll also get better TV surround sound for those that are made with Dolby pro logic II sound. (pretty much all the newer movies and shows)

No sound from rear speakers of Bose V20


Are you useing a digital coaxil cable? or optical cable?(you will need one of these connections to get 5.1 surround!) the white /red rca jacks will not do the 5.1 surround! (back speakers)

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.

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
