Bose 3 Companion Voltage

I am planning on bringing a Bose Companion 3 speakers to Europe where it is 220-240 voltage. The speakers are bought in the US, but I can't find anywhere in the cable or speakers that would help me. Can I just plug them in Sweden (where I am moving to)? Or will I have to buy a voltage converter (which costs 200 dollars)?

You'll need a converter.

Hello people, I have a problem and was hoping you could help me with it.
I have bose companion 3 speakers and not thinking i plugged them into 220 input instead of 110. They don't seem to work anymore. I am trying to open them up to see if there is something i can do.
But it seems impossible to open them up. The screws on the back dont do anything... and there is one big golden cover underneath which i cannot open.
Does anyone knows how I can open or fix them up?
Thank you

I need to know the voltage of the speaker for ac adapter matching


The speakers may have a label that has the voltage printed on it.
You can check the Bose WEB site for the specs of your model speakers. You need to know the polarity of the connector, if you get it wrong you could destroy your speakers.
You may need to contact Bose support if the specs do not help you.

Problems with bose companion II 12 volt adapter


I found that the 12v power pack from an external hard drive works fine. I think you need the 5.5 x 2.5 mm plug.

Wrong voltage applied


Whoops! Being a Bose, you should be lucky but the sounds you describe are not good. Take it to a competent engineer and get an honest opinion.

I have Bose® Companion® 2 Series I computer speakers. I need to replace the adapater and want to know if speakers accept +ve or -ve polarity voltage. Thanks!


Each device is different.
If the receptacle for the plug is not marked, you have few options.
I suggest the following.
Go buy the exact same setup from a store you can easily return it to.
Take the whole box to Radio Shack and explain that you need a power supply to replace the power supply in the box. They will sell you one, plug and all, for about $10-15.
If you have a DVM (Digital Volt Meter), you can check the voltage and polarity yourself, and buy what you need, test it out, and install it.

I have a bose companion 3 computer speaker system and it will not power on or no sound from speakers any help would be great thanks


Did it ever work? Ummm could be the power adaptor has gone bad? Use a multimeter and check for the specified (on the power adaptor) voltage on the terminals of the plug that goes into the main unit. If that voltage seems to be ok - and I hope not - but maybe your main unit has gone bad. Needs repair or replace.

Make sure, of course, that you have AC power at the house mains outlet that you are using.

Does a companion 5 bose speaker have a fuse?


You will need to change entire power supply/distribution circuit since you have managed to fry it all with twice the voltage required by the system. Speakers should be OK only the circuitry needs to be rectified and too by a professional/expert technician ...........sodeep

My puppy chewed through the cord for my a/c adapter, I just took the speakers into Circuit City, and they found me a workable replacement (the replacement isn't BOSE, but it works just fine).  Hope that helps!
