Stereo System Doesn't Make Sound

My son connected my stereo system (an older Sherwood stereo) to some new Bose speakers. The stereo turns on, but the sound does not come out. What do I need to do?

Tell your son not to play with your stereo.
Sorry that was a bit blunt. The Speakers from a bose system generally run at about 4 ohms of resistance, your sherwood amplier is spitting the dummy because it can't handle that sort of a load. get some proper speakers and make sure that they are connected up properly, and that none of the cables are touching.

I Hooked up my new stereo and cant get any sound. I put the factory Bose back in and the sound works. Hooked up my new stereo to another car and it has sound. Can anyone tell me Why im not getting sound...


If you had a "Bose" sound system - Factory installed - it should have and Amplified System - which means the original stereo will supply power to the Speaker Amps - that is the circuit that didn't get connected and why there is no sound.
I hope that resolves your issue
Thanks

Sony xplod stereo wiring diagram


Yes you need to turn on the BOSE amplifier in the car to hear the sound. The wiring diagram is actually on top of the factory radio
You will need a 12v trigger to turn the amp on. this is assuming you have all the speaker (inputs) connected to the output from your new deck.

Hi, I have a Cinemate Bose Speaker Series II System and I would like to know if I could connect Stereo Jacks from the Bose Module to a Stereo Receiver without damaging the speakers or subwoofer, and if...


That would depend on the unnamed receiver.

Most receivers have standard analog stereo outputs labeled Tape Out or something similar. You can use them as sources for stereo analog material but their outputs are not variable or under any receiver sound controls so the Bose volume will need to be adjusted. If using a Tape Output, do not select the output for listening on the receiver. THAT would disconnect the other source you're listening to.

If your receiver has a Pre-Out for the desired channels, they ARE under internal sound controls so you could set and forget the Bose volume.

Had someone from Best buy set up my new Sony bravia 47 in LCD TV. He said I should not use my slightly older Bose Cinemate digital home theater speaker system with the newer TV because the speaker system...


Hello,thats a first and he is completely wrong.The sound will arrive at the stereo at the same time it arrives at the cable box or the tv,depending on what source the stereo is hooked up to.Without going too in depth he is referring to center channel delay which is a feature in some home theaters created to induce a delay when its required, most notably when a projector is used.

Blu-ray + bose 3-2-1 system connection?


Connect an HDMI cord from the bluray player to a free input on your HDTV. Then connect the standard WHITE/RED stereo cable from the bluray player into the AUX input in the back of your 3-2-1 system and voila!

You may need to check the configuration of your bluray player to make sure that is outputting stereo audio, for this please refer to the player's user manual. Other than that, you should be alright.

No Sound


Id call you local stereo shop. I changed the head unit out in my old acura legend and had the same problem. You need to buy a special harness for the bose. Each speaker had its own amp, so i just rip it off and wired the speaker direct and trashed the amps. Now this was an older car and speakers were almost shot so no biggie. I would not recommend you doing that on and 04. Just call your local stereo shop and they should hook you up.

It depends on what you want. Is your existing solution a surround sound system (You only mention a subwoofer, what other speakers do you have?)? Do you want full 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound? If you don't have this, and want it, your amp will have to be replaced, but your sub will fit in just fine. If you currently only have front left and right speakers, you will need to purchase a centre speaker and another pair (5.1) or two pairs (7.1) of speakers.
