Question about Bose Wave Radio

2 Answers

Bose Wave Radio/CD clock running very slow. Now that I've moved it across the pacific ocean(US to NZ) the clock is suddenly running very slow, losing 10-15 minutes per hour while running on any transformer I've tried. My other Bose Wave Radio is running fine. Anyone have/solved this problem? Is there some adjustment I need to make?

The Bose Wave II has 2 clock options namely "Line" and "Crystal". Changing the clock source to "Crystal" should solve the issue. It did for me.

    How do you set the clock source? What is the procedure?

  • Sharath Jeppu May 04, 2014

    Switch on the unit. Keep the alarm time button pressed to go into the settings option.

  • Sharath Jeppu May 04, 2014

    Once the setting options come one, press the button 3 on the remote for about 5 seconds and you will come to a menu which shows you the current clock setting. This will read line or crystal. Toggle the setting by pressing the time + or - key and leave it for 5 secs to apply the settings.

    If that does not work, see if the option is available in the settings itself. It should look like this.

My guess is that the clock in the radio is based off of the AC line frequency (not voltage). In the US the line frequency is 60hz (hertz). I'm guessing that the line frequency in NZ is 50hz, which would seem to explain that extreme amount of time loss. I would check with Bose, but I'm betting they make different 50hz models for export.

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?


I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

I would like to hook up an HD tuner to my Bose Wave Radio through the RCA input jacks . . . . I've done this with an iPod and it worked . . . . will the tuner play through the Wave Radio?


Of course it will if it has audio outputs. For all the Bose knows it's just a standard external audio device. What keeps you from just trying it?

The Bose Wave Radio doesn't have a CD player. The Bose Wave Radio/CD does.

It will only play standard music CD's with standard CD Audio on them.

The manual is available at Bose.com.
