    Thanks Brainbox. I actually did check the balance  in volume control during that time when its giving problem. connecting another headphone or speaker is not reliable as the problem comes intermitently. Am trying to figure out how to demo the problem when i go to the service center...:)

    I have the same problem, but mine is for the right audio jack..the speakers work fine and I have no clue where to repair this system

    Moved from the USA to Asia and my wife put 220V into my companion 3 and shorted out the fuse I found the fuse and replaced it with one of the same volts and got the system to work with base and left side speaker working fine but the right side seems to have lost its high range output and has a faint low range working.

    what do i need to replace or are parts even available to buy and can anyone idenify what i need to replace?

    In would have to go to Singapore to find the parts!

I bought a set of Bose companion 3 speakers and the darn RCA jacks are cheap and wiggling loose. The cost to send back and repair out of warranty is about $125!! BOSE companion speakers may sound good, but for my money, I'd rather go with more reliable computer speaker systems like Creative or Logitech. BOSE IS WAY TO OVER-RATED, but HEY....they suckered ME out of $275!!!

Dear mr.jtolentino,
there seems to be a problem with your speakers.. have you checked the balance of your speakers in the volume control menu option? if yes and still you are getting the same problem, then there is a problem with the speakers.. to test this out, please connect another set of speakers to your pc or a headphone to your pc and check it out. if the new set of speakers are working, you must need to repair your old set.

Thank you sir.

I just bought Bose Companion 2 speakers which I don't know how to connect to my HP Pavillion desktop PC. The pdf instruction booklet does not help. There are multiple jacks (6) at the back of the tower...


You need to connect the speakers to the green jack in your PC.

Check your system sound volume setting to make sure it's not set to MUTE or the volume slider is on or near the lowest position - you don't specify what system you have on the PC so I can't give you an exact pointer but Volume Control generally is found under Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

Left speaker works but right speaker does not work gene.hall33@yahoo.com


Funny, this happened to me just 2 days ago, but I get no sound from the left speaker. Maybe they have all of them rigged to fail at a certain time.

Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.


I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

Can't hear voice of singer on speakers, more of an echo sound


An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).

I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.

Hope this helps!
