Bose Companion III speakers

Recently the sound on the speakers sometimes goes funny, it sounds like they are being blown in the wind. it doesn't last long & it only happens now & then. I've checked all the connections & balance. Can anyone help??

    i have a bose companion 3 series 2 multi media speaker system. every 14 seconds, the bass box lets out a 'whoomp'

    I have the same problem, when I turned on my companion 3 speakers, a howling, blowing sound came out. I can still hear music over them if I turn them up, but the howling sound persists. It doesn't seem to matter how loud the volume is turned up, since the howling sound persists even if the volume is turned all the way down on the control pod.

My Bose Companion III Computer Speakers have stopped working.All connections are fine but no sound is produced

This may sound obvious and you might have checked this already, but check all of your mute keys. If the speaker's volume control is down, that's one. If there's one on your keyboard you could accidentally hit, that's one. If the sound properties on your computer insist sound is coming out, try a different set of speakers, or try the speakers on a different device like an iPod. Get back to us if you still have problems. Hope this helps =]

No sound

  1. Open System Preferences and click Sound to display its preferences.
  2. To change the alert sound, it plays when your Mac wants to get your attention, click the Sound Effects tab, and select a sound in the top list.You can set there external speakers .

Crackling sound

That sounds like an internal fault on your Bose system.

Leave the Bose unplugged from power and from computer for one hour, to get rid of electrostatic charges accumulated inside capacitors.
If that does not get rid of the problem, then there is an internal fault, either a short on speaker wiring, or a fault on the internal amp circuit board.

Bose Companion 3 series II speakers aren't producing sound (imac)

from what I've read, the imac has a 3.5mm (.138) jack while the Bose jack is 1/8 (.125). very small difference in size (.013), but enough to cause problems.

Bose Companion 3 Series II not working (Mac)

The speakers seem to be muted by default - you'll see that the LED is yellow/amber. Tap the control pod - the LED will turn green and speakers will work. I felt like such an idiot after I spent almost an hour trying to figure this out. (This feature should be more prominent in the manual.)

Bose companion speakers

hmmm.. well if you system is like mine it has multiple ports for sound. Try the speaker plug in the front of the machine.. better yet .. to ascertain whether or not it is your speakers or sound card issue then plug some headphones in to the port and see if you have sound. Never forget the basics the sound muted? Open your sound eq application and see if the wave output is turned down.

Keep me posted!!! and Good luck!

Left speaker sometines has no sound? Please help

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!!!
