SOURCE: blu-ray + bose 3-2-1 system connection?

Connect an HDMI cord from the bluray player to a free input on your HDTV. Then connect the standard WHITE/RED stereo cable from the bluray player into the AUX input in the back of your 3-2-1 system and voila!

You may need to check the configuration of your bluray player to make sure that is outputting stereo audio, for this please refer to the player's user manual. Other than that, you should be alright.

SOURCE: connecting ipod to bose system

Look at the back of your 3-2-1 to see if the auxillary is a single or dual output. You will need that information when you go to Radio Shack, or you can also get at the Apple store, a connector from Gigaware that connects to the ipod. It was only $15-$20,

SOURCE: bose lifestyle no sound

Hi, best practice when troubleshooting a no-sound Bose Lifesytle system is to first begin with the internal sources (i.e. the AM/FM). Bose Lifestyle system when connected properly (media center and bass box via the data cable) should show a steady green light underneath the bass module. Begin by simply playing AM/FM tuner and try to increase the volume till 45 (normally the sound becomes audible at this level). If the system still has no sound, then try to check if the bass module is steady green. When you see a blinking green LED (slow green) then do kindly check the DIP siwtch (red latch switch with white mini switches) just beside the Light and data connection. All of the switches should be in "ON" position (basically toggled upwards with the arrow marking indication). Before changing DIP switch settings do ensure that the bass module is not connected to the electrical power. after ensuring that all DIP switch are in the "ON" position, connect the data cable firs and then power up the bass module. Then you should see the bass module blink green twice and once you turn on the nedia center, the green blinking should turn steady green. That should sort out your problem.

Also do note tha this procedure applies only to Series II Lifesytle System and does not include the Series IV (with the smaller bass module).

If all still fails, there is an internal problem with the bass module which would require servicing.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: bose lifestyle 38 system, sound problems

Call Bose and get the latest software for your system. This will solve the problem.
Details:
I had the exact same problem with my Lifestyle 48 system connected to a Dish Networks satellite box (Vip622). The sound would continually switch between 'Dolby Digital 2.0', 'Dolby Digital' and 'Dolby Digital 5.1'.
I called Bose Tech Support and they had me reset all of the components. This helped for a short time but it was still happening. They told me that the problem was with the Satellite box, since the Bose system just output what it was receiving and didn't do anything else. We also determined that my system software was quite old. They said that the software wouldn't make any difference, but I got them to send it out anyway.
Well, when the new software update arrived, I installed it on my Bose system and have not had any audio switching problems. So the Bose system software update seemed to fix the problem.

Generally you would use the Bose Panaray controller with these for the best performance, but you could just wire them up with an active crossover. Not as good, but useable.

I have recently aquired bose 520b acoutimass panray base module. can this be connected and work with my 2 pairs of bose 901's.i use pioneer SPEC 1 & SPEC 4{ power amp/pre amp}


Don't you mean "502B"?

http://pro.bose.com/pdf/pro/manuals/panaray_502_b/ig_panaray_502b.pdf

Why do they call the SPEC-1 a PREamp when it seems to be an INTEGRATED AMP with speaker outputs and all?

http://sportsbil.com/stereo/spec/

I'm going to assume one of the numbered, presumably volume-controlled outputs (1,2) goes to the 901 Active Equalizer and on to the SPEC-4.

The OTHER numbered output could feed the missing Panaray Digital Controller and then, presumably, another amp but like many a 901 owner I've heard of, you COULD skip that part for the 502b and hook them to the unmodifed amps available in the SPEC-1 and see how it works out.

No sound Bose Lifestyle 38 III


I am quite sure that the indicator lights should be green. The blinking yellow likely indicates that there is no communication between the head and the audiomass. Verify that the connections are tight and then try powering off (unplugging) the system (both head and audiomass) for 30 seconds and then powering on again. That will often re-establish communications.

Tech data sheet with diagrams:

In a nutshell, the controller would go between a preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You can't use Bose 901 or 802 EQ in a multichannel setup without separate amps for the Bose speakers.

The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component.

In a vanilla stereo configuration you would just put the controller/EQ into a Tape Monitor loop but multichannel sound and digital sources won't work that way.

You should be able to draw off the (assumed) Front L&R channel preamp signal from the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio Out (REC) jacks (*). Run that to the Preamp In (or whatever it's labeled on the Bose EQ/Controller). DO NOT run a return RCA pair back to the Receiver as Bose-processed signals will not play well with non-Bose speakers. (*) Run the Output of the Bose EQ/Controller to a powerful separate amp for the Bose 802/901's. I use two channels on a Carver multichannel AV-406 amp but a stand-alone Carver MT-200T also works well. A good clean 100 watts/channel should suffice at home.

* If possible, choose the recorder loop you are NOT using for something else. If you're using the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio OUT for a recording device just get some RCA splitters to share the Stereo signal between the Bose and the device at the same time. However, once you select monitoring of that recorder two things will likely happen - 1) you'll lose the Bose and anything digital in the receiver will be disabled.

It's the nature of the digital beast that analog monitoring gets in the way of DSP.

Of course, if anyone who reads this has a receiver with individual analog Audio Outputs for the various 5.1 channels (as I do), the solution would be to draw off the Front L&R channels to the Bose EQ and downstream amplifier and the rest would be the same but without Recorder Loop limitations.
