Question about Bose Companion 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System (2-Piece)

1 Answer

Bose desktop speakers stopped working suddenly

Bose Companion 2 speakers worked fine for over a year. I disconnected them last week, and now they produce no sound in either OS X or Windows. I can hear through headphones plugged into the front of the Bose, but not without headphones. I can also hear sound through the computer's inbuilt speakers.

    Yes, the speakers are fully plugged in. The headphone jack on the front of the speakers works (I can hear through it), so I'm pretty certain a) the speakers are plugged in correctly, b) the volume's up and c) the speakers are receiving power. I just can't hear through the speakers when there's no headphone plugged into them.

    Thanks for your help, but again, the speakers are definitely plugged in. In addition to physically checking, I know they're getting power and I know the computer is putting out sound because I can hear through the headphones when I plug them into the front of the Bose speakers.

    For clarification: You unplugged your speakers and when you plugged them back in you can't hear sound. If you plug in headphones directly through the speakers you can hear sound. You can also hear sound through the computer's built-in speakers _______________________________________ -Check to make sure the speakers are correctly plugged into the PC. -Check the volume knob on the speakers.

    I plugged in my headphones, after removing them the speakers no longer work. I can use my headphones without a problem, but still no sound when I remove them.

Make sure that the power is plugged into both the wall or strip and the back of the speaker.

    This is really what you came up with? You think the first thing he didn't check was to make sure it was plugged in? Please stop "helping". It's just sad.

Try another set of speakers to eleiminate the BOSE speakers as being the issue (even cheap ones will do). If the problem does not re-occur, the issue is with the speakers.
If all the speaker jacks are plugged in correctly, I would consider returning this set, as it looks like the issue is within the circuitry of the Woofer

Bass rattling on Bose Companion 2


My Companion 2 speakers were having the same problem with the rattling on certain frequencies and I am happy to say that Steve Allison was correct in my case. The speakers don't handle surround settings very well so if you're running your speakers through a source that had that setting turned on the easiest way to stop the rattling is to just turn the surround setting off. The speakers weren't really made to handle that kind of a signal.

Bose companion 3


This is a common problem it seems with the electronics within the speaker set. (Companion 3 with sub and remote pod, aka, 'puck' = help desk support term)
I bought the multimedia speaker set in 2004 and had it replaced in 2005 because the 'puck' would not turn on (no orange light nor green light.) So I called help desk and they accepted the warranty exchange and I mailed the entire system (speakers and all) back to Bose in Markham, Ontario, Canada and they sent it back several weeks later. It worked 5-6 years after that as it is 2009 now, and it has the same problem again (no light on the puck). So I called help desk again and was ran through the same tests again (on/off, power plug off, various audio inputs, etc.) and the guy said to mail it in and they'd fix it as a non-warranty item. Cost: $85(Cdn) for repair + taxes, and $39 for remote pod.
So the sound that I got to enjoy from the Companion 3 system was amazing but electronic quality is very poor. For a set that cost above most other home user sets at FS and BB, it is substandard longevity.
I like Bose and have no complaints about the sound, but I will not buy another Bose multimedia package because at $350 (in 2004), I would expect it to outlast other sets. My friend bought a Logitech speaker set from another company in 2003 and is laughing at me as he realizes this is my second set and it hasn't even lasted as long as his own set.
