Question about Tannoy Sensys 7 Speaker

Bose acoustimas speaker output jacks not working

Hi,
I have a Bose Lifestyle system with the Acoustimas subwoofer.  It's about 4 years old.  I know now that they are overpriced crap, but I am stuck with them.  So, suddenly only one cube speaker output jack is working.  I have a 5 cube speaker system, and the speakers are fine, just 4 of the 5 output jacks stopped working. In other words, I can only run a speaker off of the one working speaker outlet w/cable.
Can you help?
Thanks,
Carmen

    Um, OK, but first off, I am a chick and don't know a transistor amplifier from my output capacitors. Also, you replied about the "Synsen 7" system. I have a Bose Lifestyle system - are we talking about the same thing?

    Being an ametuer, is there a chance I can wreck something by opening the subwoofer up and tinkering with it? I really don't know what to look for. I could open it and look for cracks and get someone to do soldering, but the rest is beyond me. I am happy to pay more if I need more assistance from you to do it. I hate giving anymore $ to Bose for repair.

    Thanks,

    Carmen

    As I mentioned in my post, the speakers are fine, it's 4 out of 5 outputs jacks not working. So, ofcourse, I already did a rudimentary check to see if it was the speakers or the subwoofer/amp.

    So, thanks for you reply, but it does not really address my problem.

Carmen, first try this. Take the output from the amp or receiever that does not work and switch the wires from an output from the amp or receiver that is working. If the problem stays with the same speaker, the fault is for sure in the speaker. If the problem moves to the other speaker, the problem is with your amp or receiver. In any case, I am afraid after these checks, the only thing a novice can do would be to take the defective receiver, amp, or speaker to a repair center for repair. Good Luck

Try to trace your problem inside the main circuitry of the jacks ( open it and see on the solder side of the Printed circuit board(where all the electronic components and soldered/welded if there are loose connections (small cracks... use magnifying glass if you have one) then solder them.
also check for the transistor amplifiers and output capacitors....
check also for the connectivity of all wirings!

Just make sure they all have the correct impedance to match your system. Such as 8 ohm or 16 ohm. Sometimes the speaker inputs are marked with the correct ohm value

I have a pair of redline bose cube speakers and an acoustimas. I don't have cable for the connection. I would appreciate if someone help me showing diagram and which cable I should use it. Thanks


You can make a serial cable for it. All you need is a 15-pin d-type female connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Solder the speaker wire as shown in my diagram.

Initial Bose Speakr Hook-Up Acoust 10-Denon RCVR


Hope this may help but you will disappointed. as heard from some pro, your amp will blow up the bose cube if direct connected to them, they are powering down your output to fit their tiny speaker. My understanding was you have to hook up everything to the bose module. They don't like to play with others.

Bose Acoustimas with error 10


Error 10 is either a disconnect from the audio input cable (check the pins on both ends) or the Acoustimass module has no power. Check the outlet etc. If resetting it (unplug both components for 30+ seconds) doesn't fix the problem. Call Bose for a repair.

Audio problem - Bose Acoustimas


Go into the parameters setting for your receiver and make sure that your levels are at least matching all outputs. If this is not the case, suspect wiring or a problem with the amplifier. Oh, and last but not least, make sure that the receiver has at least the "speaker A" option switched on...accordianman
