    I have the exact same issue with my Bose 701 II... The subwoofer stopped working; I feel like no power is there (tested the power cable and it works). I even tested it from an other receiver (maybe my receiver's sub out died) but again not working. Simply subwoofer my my Bose 701 II not working. Was there a solution to this question?

SOURCE: Bose Acoustimass 6 No Subwoofer sound

take it back for refund or exchange without delay. Too many times, there are cases of faulty factory assembly. Most likely a poorly connected wire inside sub, which fell off after a few booms.

yes i was back in nam whence i came across this devil of a problem. me and jimmy had some bose triple gauge subwoofers fully loaded in our packs. we needed serious wooferage and luckily we got captured and rendered prisoners. the namese transferred us to africa for some unknown friggin reason. Anyway we ended up on an electronic dump in nigeria and that is where all of our problems came to an end. those **** hooked us brothers up and got those triple gauge subwoofers rockin straight out of our backpacks. we were **** scared at first (maybe thats why we couldn't feel it when they plugged those sound pumpin, rocket eating, puppy skinning machines into our livers). We were set, me and jimmy just cruising, walked all the way home with bose triple gauge mother humping subwoofers pumping straight off our livers. Just plug em in bro. Those f&*kers will rock your world. Copyright. Me and Jimmy in Nam 1932. Jesus christ I'm drunk, maybe I should write books instead of working as a bricklayer.

Does bose 701 series ii have a fuse for power subwoofer?


Fuses are used to control the inflow and outflow of electrical current. They are mainly used in speakers in order to protect them from being blown out. This is why there is a specific number of ohms on the instructions that it can handle. I'm sure there is somewhere. There are fuses in all high quality speaker systems. You'd just have to open the back up in order to find it.

Philips DC912/37 will not pair with the subwoofer. I have had the device for 2 years, and the subwoofer stopped working recently, and now it will not pair with the tuner.


This worked for me. Try it and it should work for you all as well..;-)

Frequently asked questions See all FAQs Question How do I get the main unit to recognize the subwoofer? Answer Wireless connection will set up automatically when you switch on both the main unit and subwoofer.
Sometimes you may encounter the problem that the main unit does not recognize the subwoofer. Try the following process to solve the problem:
  • They are heavily interfered by other wireless home appliance such wireless network, TV etc. Move the subwoofer to another place, the main unit will auto detect & recognize it.
  • Switch off the main unit and the subwoofer and then switch on them again. The main unit should recognize the subwoofer automatically.
If neither of the above works, try to pair with them manually.
  1. In standby mode, press and hold the 090518075138_27245.gif button on the main unit (PAIR flashes on the display screen.) to activate signal transmitting.
  2. Press and hold the PAIR button on the rear of the subwoofer (You will find the LED indicator on the subwoofer flashes in blue and green alternatively) to activate signal receiving.
The wireless connection will set up automatically and the main unit should recognize the subwoofer now.

Please Help ....i have Bose Acoustimass 10, 5.1 system connected


Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

I have Harmon Kardon AVR 25 ii receivers and I have attached it to Bose 701 front speakers and three other Bose surround speakers and an subwoofer. All the speakers work except for right speaker, I need...


To locate the problem...a) Cable
Test if right cable is ok, by interchanging the rt/left cables.

b) Test Bose right speaker
Connect the Bose right speaker to HK's left channel. Works? Then Bose right speaker is ok.

c) Test HK's right output by connecting the left Bose speaker to HK's right output.
Does not work?

Bose 901 hook up


Assuming you really want to have a working surround system you will need a separate stereo amplifier for the 901's to accomodate the need for the Active EQ. There is no way to separate your receiver's front L&R channel preamplifiers from their amplifiers.

I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds. You would probably just get a nice 2-channel amplier for the 901's. However, the TX-SR606 doesn't provide power for a Subwoofer, should you decide to get one, so you would need another amplifier channel for that, too. Therefore, you might look around for a powerful 3- or 4-channel amplifier so you could drive the Sub, too.

Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. I'm using only 100W for mine and it has plenty of steam for the 901's.

For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ';s Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

Not what you might want to hear but 901's have special requirements. I've had mine for 25 years and have no regrets.

A seperate subwoofer channel on the amp could be used. Just run a single RCA channel from Sub OUT to one available channel IN on the amp and attach the subwoofer to it. Two would work, also. That's what I do. You could use a 1-2 RCA splitter to feed two avaailable channels on a 4-channel amp. The iterations are many. Have fun.

Subwoofer blows internal fuse when receiver is turned on


Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.
