Question about Car Audio & Video

2 Answers

Hi, on my Infinity fx45 2004 Bose system, I'm experiencing a fading cd player volume and sound quality that is triggered or cancelled by car movement. it actually has three different behaviours, 1-very poor, 2-audible but low quality and 3-normal high quality and normal volume. whatever the fault is, it's not affecting the volume when listening to the radio.

    I don't think it's a connectors problem, the radio and cassette tape player are working normaly and I think they all go through the same speakers wiring as the cd player. pls correct me if I'm wrong, thks.

With my experience on Car audio systems, the main culprit for electrical trouble is Connectors.

Check the connectors; especially the RCA connectors (Round Coaxail connectors), unplug them and plug them back in while the CD player is playing. Any problem there will be obvious. If that's it, clean them off with a dry cloth, perhaps poke a Q-tip into the receptical to clean that.
Most often, just removing and re-attaching (or even just wiggiling) the connectors is good enough.

This is especially the most likely culprit if you live close the the ocean's salty air, or in a place that had roads salted for snow and ice.

    Correct, the radio, tape and CD do use the same amplifier and speaker connectors.



    Sounds like this device has an internal problem.



    My only suggestion there would be to open the top, (check the back to see if the wires can be unplugged from the back, or, if it's a pull out deck then it's very easy to remove one or two screws holding one side of the top cover plate, and pop the top off.)



    Look inside to see that there is no irregular objects interfering with the position of the CD drawer or the space where the CD goes. (There should be a cover preventing access to the really delicate parts.) Check the whole thing to be shure there are no foreign objects interfering with proper operation. Check too for a smell, like burnt electonics, it's a symptom of serious evident electronic problems.



    Check the connectors and wires that connect the CD unit to the surrounding components to be shure they're intact and secure. Some exploration may be necessary, There's only one rule; "Put everything back the way you found it as you put it back together." Make notes to be shure.



    If you've never opened a device like this before, Just progress slowly and recognize the different components, the CD and cassette modules and their preAmplifiers, in the center; the main Amplifier module at the back, The Tunner and controll systems on the large plate on the bottom, (or top perhaps the side.),

    Each of these modules connects to another,

    Check that the connections are good; especially the CD module.



    Beyond this, It's either a repair shop problem, or perhaps one of your passengers with a remote controll dosn't like the CD. LOL



    In electronics, the biggest problems are often simple things.



    Good luck with that.

    Richard.

Bose 321 sound fading


Try the following:

1) Switch the unit off completely, using the powerswitch on the back of the bass box.
2) Switch the unit back on via de switch on the bass box.
3) The display should read BOSE 321 and than be dark.
4) Insert a CD and switch the unit on with the remote by selecting the CD/DVD mode.
5) When the sound is now OK, it means that you need to contact Bose to ask them for the latest software update for your unit. After updating your system. The problem will not reoccur.
6) in case the problem continues and at start-up using a CD, no improvement of sound is heard, the system should go into repair. Contact Bose in your country and ask for return instructions.

Mazda6 CD volume goes out


I have a mazda 6 also I dont have a manual for it but I believe it is a safety feature as we get in and turn cd's up loud and I believe it is so that as we sllow down it fades so we can hear sirens etc around us. Mine fades down when I drop below 40km and gets louder agian when I get back up to 60km.

Bose wave radio/cd player. Power reduction.


Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Bose audio system error codes 31,33,30?


The trunk mounted 12 disc magazine changer with the Bose audio system is made by Pioneer. Mine is a bit flaky too so I try to avoid unnecessarily swapping out the CD's. Those error codes can mean anything from a defective/wrong disc type (it does not support MP3 discs), a disc being upside down, or forgetting to close the magazine loading door. It can also indicate condensation on the laser lens or a system malfunction. There may be a list of error codes in the owner's manual if you have one, I currently don't.

Assuming you have checked all of the possible human errors above, there are aftermarket sellers that claim you can adapt an aftermarket changer to the Bose system albeit with with inferior sound quality to the original system. Bose is typically well-known for it's audio quality. That being said, the other option would be to seek a repair facility that can repair these changers. There are some places on-line that repair car audio that also might be able to help.

A cheaper workaround might be to hook up a portable CD/MP3 player using a cassette adapter. Assuming the cassette player, amp and speakers are good, you would possibly still get fairly high quality sound from the Bose system.

Best of Luck!
