Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System
I bought the bose lifestyle system from america, and it was working perfectly over there. We then moved to India, and now the system doesn't work properly. We have a proper converter and stabilizer for the bose system, which acts as a voltage converter from 220 volts to 110 volts.
The problem is that, sometimes the bose system just turns off automatically after 5 - 10 minutes. I then have to turn off the main switch for some time, about 2-3 minutes. Then when I turn on the bose system, then it works again for 5 - 10 minutes.
Do anyone of you know what to do, or if you have faced the similar problems, please reply.
A voltage converter is not neccessarily the proper piece of equipment to use as most equpment comes with a 120/230 voltage selector. What is probably causing your problem is power frquency. Power in India runs on 50HZ, not the 60Hz we use in the states. This causes a slightly longer peak wave and can cause over heating, therefore shutdown. Check to see if the unit has a 50/60 switch and switch to accordingly.
Back when I was a professional sound engineer and toured abroad, we used a device called an auto-former. These changed the frequency and voltage as needed. Unfortunately the first time I went to England I forgot about this, could not find any pre-built ones and had to spend nearly a week designing and fabricating 8 of them....
