Re: bose lifestyle 12 remote

Dip switches are inside battery cover and should be as follows :
all in off position (lower / nearest side to battery) except switch number 5 which should be in the up or ON position.

other wise losing the remote for months should have no effect assuming the replacement batteries you have installed are in good condition.

I had Bose lifestyle V35, V20 try to link together. Bose link AL8 transmitter will not connect to receiver. both led is light solid green. Please help.

The commands for the Bose link system are actually going through the remote control system. In order to use the system you need not only a set of AL8 sender and receiver, but also a special remote control model RC48S2-40 these model numbers are slightly different for the US and for Europe. In addition you will need to activate the BoseLink connection through the system settings menu and you will need to tell the remote to which system it needs to talk. When you have done all that, there should not be any problem to "connect" the two systems. If this does not work, you may need some specialized help from a Bose specialist who understands this multi room set-up.

How to add secon subwoofer to my lifestyle bose system?

You cannot add a second sub woofer to your Bose system unless you are very well versed in electronics and would like to tamper with the internal electronics of the Bose module. Unlike other systems the 6 channel amplifier ( 5 + 1sub ) and its crossover electronics + power supply unit is built into the Bose bass module. The circuit uses very small surface mounted devices with double sided pcb ). And even a professional technician might refuse this work in fear that he may damage the whole unit itself !!!!.

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.

Using the remote control, and the on-screen settings menu, you must set OPTICAL as your AUX input. After this is done, Your Bose Lifestyle system will recognize the signal on the optical input.

I had the same problem, and called Bose tech support. They put me on track to the solution. The code you need is under AUX, Music Player, Apple where you probably looked already. The secret is that you need to "unpair" the apple remote first. If I remeber right, in apple TV you go to settings, general, remotes and unpair your remote. It still works, but is no longer the only remote that works.

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.
