Lifestyle 12 speaks - new HDTV

Happy New Year everyone!

I am considering replacing an old Sony 35" Trinitron with a new LCD HDTV. The center Lifestyle 12 cub sites on top of the set today, and the left/right cubes are on stands. I have serious space constraints (this is in a corner and not along a wall) and I can't figure out how to place or attach the Lifestyle cubes on top of the LCD HDTV. I do not want to replace the Lifestyle 12 as it works fine.

Any solutions on how to attach the speakers to the new LCD HDTV?

Re: Lifestyle 12 speaks - new HDTV

Mount to wall, brackets available to purcahse on loads of on line sites. and from bose direct cost 5 dolurs to 50 dollars eack depending how fancy you want to be.
would recomment also distancing the left right satellites as you will be amazed how much improvement in sound is gained from a well defined centre channel.

also if you want to be really smart. its really not necessary to see the centre satelliet and it could simply sit of the stand behind the tv. with no problem. plus you could use the tv audio input to make the tv as a centre channel. you would be surprised how well that works. make sure you disable the tvs steroe function or your surround sound will not sound too surround....

finally if you have lifestyle series II make sure you conect the 5.1 input to the bass box to your tv. and get rid of the bose cd player , put it out of sight, and loose the remote. will work even better than it did before !

My base module doesn't work anymore , can i replace it with another brand or amplifier

There's a base unit on eBay for bid, currently around $90, expiring tonight at 15:45 PST

another $210 Buy-It-Now

$204 BIN...

Bose products are highly proprietary. If they have non-standard connectors from the amp or in the speakers I'd take that as a clue they're NOT compatible with other manufacturers' products.

Pink and green colours seem to be too vibrant when watching dvd's on lifestyle 48

I have a Lifestyle 48 which suddenly started producing a pink and green image when playing DVDs (regular TV was fine.) After speaking with Bose support, I did the following which resolved the problem:

1. Removed power from the video switcher. (or from the bose itself if you don't use the switcher.)

2. Reattach all the video cables on the back of the bose and ensure all connections to the TV and switcher (if applicable) are tight.

After performing these steps, my DVD image went back to normal. I suspect it was a loose cable in the end, but no harm in performing the power disconnect.

Haow do we take apart the woofer lifestyle 12

There is a gap all the way round the rear of the sub woofer between the plastic rear cover and the main body. The top gap in the center you will see what looks like a cog wheel, use a flat head screw driver to turn this untill a flat section sticks up. Make sure it sticks out all the way. Undo the 2 screws on the bottom of the unit just above where all the cables plug in. Slide the rear cover donwards and lift away.

Lifestyle 12 receiver vs lifestyle 12 II

yes will work just fine, a slight difference in the output gain from the control baord, but in almost all other cases you wont know the difference. just make sure especially if you intend to use the old cd unit with the new bassbox that if you connect the digital source to to (say dvd player) that you initially use bose remote to turn on bass baox and set volume.

Bose lifestyle 12 music center display inop

My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.
