Bose Acoustimass power

Hi there

I have a early model Bose system consisting of left and right cube speakers and an Acoustimass Sub module providing power to both the sub and the speakers.

When I turn the stereo on it works fine, but after 20 seconds all sound cuts out, the control unit is still going and I can hear through the headphones but not through the speakers. I turn the sub off and turn it back on and it lasts for about 10 seconds, retry then 5 seconds. Until it doesn’t work at all.
I live in New Zealand and we have one bose supplier in out main city, which is a $300 trip or $150 courier without even getting it looked at.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

Re: Bose Acoustimass power

The amp is overheating. Disconnect one speaker at a time to see if problem persists. If so, the amp needs serviced.

How can I hook up BIC F12 subwoofer to Onkyo TX-DS838 receiver? Will the receiver power the subwoofer and other speakers?

Get a RCA cable and connect from your amp where it said Sub Woofer in the Pre Out box in the back of the amplifier top left hand side and take it to the "Sub In" located in the back of your Sub woofer bottom right hand (White round connector).
Good Luck!

Get a separate amp for the 901's and the rest falls into place.

1,2, 5) Place the 901 Active EQ between the pre/main front OUT of the receiver and the TFM-55X. Attach the 901's. Keep track of the jumpers you remove from the receiver. Or replace the jumpers with RCA splitter cables so you still have pre/main connection but can share the output with the TFM.

3) Pinnacle subwoofer (self-powered?) to the subwoofer out of the receiver.

4) Bose (AMS???) 5. As surrounds on the receiver. Place the sub module toward the rear so it mates sonically and directionally with them.

What? No center speaker? I'd get something more robust with bass capabilities, like a pair Bose 301 series 1's because the tweeters face in one direction only.

Except for the amps and the cube stuff that is essentially what I have. 6.1 with full-range speakers everywhere.

Better sound through bose speakers?

If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

No sound from main left and right speakers

no, the yamaha system would shut down if the amplifiers had a problem. I would check the bose system, try directly hooking the speakers to the mains in stead of thru the bose system if you can. the easy way to check the amps is to plug in a set of head phone in they are directly tied to the mains.
