SOURCE: Bose 321 won't turn on

I'm amazed at the range of comments regarding this system; they range from unbridled enthusiasm to some **** words.
Before I try to help, if I am not familiar with a specific model but have a clue to what the nature of the problem might be, I research the item to see if I find some support for my suspicion.
You might keep tabs on some comments I found relating to a possible class-action lawsuit due to the array of problems that have appeared with this system.
This link will give you a sample of them:

SOURCE: My Bose 321 series II is not responding to the

Replace the batteries from the remote control. Press and hold the TV button on remote for 5 seconds. If the red light shines bright, your remote is OK since it is showing it's programmable side. If unit still won't go on using the remote, reboot the whole system by unplugging the power cord and other wire from the Subwoofer. Wait one minute, then replug all and see if the system displays BOSE 321 in front when re-connected. If so, try the remote and if that doesn't work, your dead, the Infra red communication device from the unit to the remote is busted inside the unit and needs to be returned to the company like mine!!!!!

SOURCE: communicating with your tv message on bose 321 series 2

Well, it seems that this may be a common issue with this BOSE unit. My 321 GSIII was working fine as well for about a week. After a full frustrating day of switching, disconnecting, reconnecting cables and resetting the unit and TV several times, I was forced to call the BOSE Technical. They tried to help with the situation over the phone by directing me to do just about everything I did before I ever called them. After about an hour of their unsuccessful help, they left me in saying that I will now have to run Composite cables because my TV will not connect for some reason through HDMI even though it was working for a short time. AHHHHH...I custom prepared the walls in my new office to accommodate non-exposed cables and wires and now BOSE is saying to expose Composite cables. Tomorrow, I am going to connect the Composite cables to confirm if the 321 will now work that way (for curiousty). I will then call BOSE back and demand a replacement unit. I will keep all in the loop with my progress of this situation.

I have a 321 serie II and doesn,t work


Check the mains power switch on the back of the bass unit. Is it in the "on" position?

Wiggle the plug of the mains lead, on the bass box side and make sure it is all the way put into the bass box.

Still no signs of life.? Look for a replacement mains cord or measure if indeed AC current is present on the plug.

Still no luck? Call Bose and have them check out your system.

Bose offers the manual in PDF format so you'll need Adobe reader (it's free from Adobe.com if you don't have it)...

As for reception; The FM antenna is a simple RCA plug, and you can make an antenna from an old headphone or speaker line...the AM antenna is a bit trickier.

You can also buy these directly from Bose at the following site:

* I would try eBay first to save a few bucks...

After unplug, all audio inputs including FM radio do not work. but CD/DVD works fine. Bose321 system


Pull it all out again and start again, starting with just the bass module and left and right speakers, plug in the fm radio antenna, and tune it in if necessary. work with the radio first, then when you get that working, plug all of the other speakers in, then try a dvd, after that continue plugging in any other connections you may have i.e set top box etc.
Good Luck!

Audio problems with Bose 321 system


Hi, sounds like the centre front speaker is disconnected. Check the wiring on that, if all is good there then a fault most likely with the amp. To make sure try connecting a different speaker to the centre channel just for test purpose to eliminate a speaker/cable fault. Best of luck

Bac speaker bose 321


The arrays from this system are only designed to run with the Bose Acoustimass / subwoofer, which in turn will only work with the Bose DVD player. If you use them directly to an amplifier, they'll sound poor / wierd and you probably blow the drivers. You might even damage your amp.

Each speaker has 2 drivers firing in slightly different directions. The idea is (when its used with the 321 system), the inward speakers give a mix of front and centre, the outer drivers give a mix of front and rear. A normal amp won't do this....
