Question about Boston Acoustics PV1000 Subwoofer

1 Answer

The amplifier module in my Boston Acoustic PV1000 Subwoofer has fried itself. According to the New Zealand importer, a new module is not available. Any ideas? Would there be a wiring diagram avail? Maybe I could find a tech who could re-wire the module? Thanks Michael

    I have an out-of-warranty Boston Acoustics PV1000 and it is need of repair. Althoug it is stated that (for this particular model) one can just send the amplifier pcb, (and keep the cabinet to save on shipping) neither I nor a local home audio equipment repair shop has figured out how to open the cherry wood cabinet to gain access to the electronic components. Can you provide a simple procedure and diagram if possible on how one goes about openeing the wood cabinet. Also are any special tools required? Thanks.

    All you need is a phillips head screw driver. First turn the speaker upside down on a soft cloth. Remove the legs, speaker protector, and subwoofer. There are leads to the subwoofer that will come off, so remove slowly. Then disconnect all of the cables to the PCB. Most are simple connectors, but the power lead has a clip, so be careful. Finally, remove all of the screws that secure the PCB to the cabinet. Rotate the pcb from the bottom of the cabinet to the top by rotating along the lengths axis so the bottom is now facing out of the subwoofer hole. Tip one short end side up toward the hole and remove.

Make sure that the input connection ground is good. If that does not cure the loud hum then you have a power supply issue.

Boston acoustics pv-1000 won't power on


Just fixed my PV1000 that would not power on. Verified 185vdc on bulk capacitors. Measured 11vdc on U5 (UC3842) from pin 5 (gnd) to pin 7 (vcc). Then measured 0vdc from pin 5 (gnd) to pin 8 (ref). This should be 5vdc. This means that U5 is shut down for undervoltage. Turned out to be two open resistors. R94 100k 2w and R77 33k 2w. Never would have guessed that as there was no sign of heat discoloration. They are next to each other between U5 the UC3842 PWM IC and Q3. This prevented the proper startup voltage for U5. Replaced them and I'm off and running once again. Hope this helps someone.

Hello
Did you find the value of ZD3.
I need it too.
I have the same problem, and I take out the ZD3 and the subwoofer works. But I'm not sure that is correct. I think it may be the circuit stand by.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

Subwoofer hums when on. Hum persists when speaker disconnected from amplifier. Gets louder if volume turned up. Is this a service issue or am I picking up interference from power line.


1-check your connection cable for good condition and change it with new one.
2-insert(ground-loop isolator)(radio shack(270-54).between your audio out and subwoofer

Subwoofer shut down


The amplifier probably has a built in protection circuit to keep from over driving the subwoofers. This will prevent the dealer from replacing woofers........most likely it's designed to be overly safe.
There's likely not much you can do about it, if there's not enough bass you may have to seek out a larger amplifier.

Try installing an old creative driver for digital audio but use system restore to take a backup of your settings first. Also, you may have to update the bios and unselect the AUTO mode for sound.
