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

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.

if bose unit has built in amplifier .Then your sherwood would have to have a variable RCA output jacks in order to work with sub.Then bose audio input RCA cable would connect there.If bose unit does not have built in amp .Then you would connect sherwood left/right speaker outputs into bose left/right inputs .Then other bose speakers will connect to bose unit

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.

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture


You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

VOLUME ISSUE


I had my older bose 321 hooked up through vcr and sounded great. Then hooked it up through directv receiver and sounded better. then switched from direct to comcast and hooked the bose up throught the comcast hd receiver and the volume is aweful. same deal, have to crank it up high. Since the stereo built into the tv sounds so much better I disconnected the bose and am going to sell it.

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.
