They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.

SOURCE: missing power cable for Bose Sounddock

Repair may the only solution. The new power supply is only slightly different though.. If you don't want to spent the $100 to repair this, you could get the new supply and carve a notch in the top part of the square power input.. Looking at the new power supply, the top is a bit taller and arched but the same specs..
But the new power supply is still expensive. (I think $60+) So for an additional $40 ($100 total) you can get a new supply retrofitted on to the old input. It's worth it- you get a new 1 year warranty, and they put the new Apple dock connector on there (USB charge pin) as well as the power supply, so you can use current iPods as well as old. (Your SD currently won't support- iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2ng gen, or iPod Nano 4th gen.. it will after a repair)

Hi

To fix this you will need to have the dock/cradle re-soldered. I know someone who does this and does not charge a fortune. If you would like to get it fixed then let me know,

SOURCE: No sound from Bose SoundDock

I had this problem on my SoundDock. My iPod would charge on the dock just fine and when I played my iPod on the dock, it would look like it was playing, but have no sound. Since my Bose was out of warranty, this is what I did to fix it. #1 Unplug the adapter. #2 Unscrew the four large screws on the bottom of the speaker and the three small screws under the dock. #3 You'll see one long ribbon connection and one very short one. Check to see if the ribbon connector coming from the front of the speaker system came loose from the green board. You'll only be able to see 1/2 an inch of it sticking out, and it's not easy to plug it back in, but it's possible. Just take your time. #4 Carefully put everything back together being very careful not to let the ribbon fall out of the plug again. #5 Make sure to plug in the DC adapter the correct way. There's a very subtle difference, but there is a difference. There are four prongs - two are square and two have slightly rounded corners. If it's not plugged in the correct way, the dock will have a static clicking sound. On my adapter, the words "DC power" are on the top of the plug.

You cannot use a two pin connector as there are three lines, +18, -18 and ground. While you can connect the two ground lines together, you still need to accommodate the split power rails.

The easiest way would be to fit a 3 pin mini-din plug. However, you are going to be looking long and hard to find a replacement power supply on tevshelf that can produce the two rail voltages required at a suitable current.

In the interest of protecting your dock from damage, and given the amount of work required to make the change, you are far better to bite the bullet and purchase a replacement supply from Bose.

Of course, you may be able to source a Chinese clone supply from China on the eBay website - perhaps worth a look... :o)

Bose SoundDock Power Supply Pin-outs so I can test one


Hi, The pinouts are as labelled below. The original Bose supply allows for 1A max current, so I would prevent your power supply from going above that.

Diagnostic videos and spares for the Bose SoundDock. There are several builds of the Bose SoundDock Original that look identical from the outside. If you visit invebo.com and enter your dock serial number you get access to the resources that tell you which version the dock's internal hardware you have in your dock, diagnostic and self repair videos and what kits you should buy to fix or upgrade to charge or Bluetooth wireless streaming. All spares are supplied on a no-risk 'buy and try' basis.

I have a BOSE soundock portable and I have to replace my connector at the end of the power supply.What is the size of the connector.


Bose uses a proprietary connector for their power supply. Your best bet would be to purchase one, for example at this site: http://www.frontrowelectronics.com/bose-power-supply-sounddock-series-1-white.aspx?utm_source=googleBase&utm_medium=referal&utm_campaign=Bose
The four pin connector is not standard and cannot be found in stores such as Radio Shack, etc.

You can get a 3 pin plug from many shops, but make sure the voltage rating on the back says it will work on 240V if using in britain as America use 115v electriccal system.

Bose sound dock doesn't work at all


If this is the original SoundDock, the power supply in back is 4 pronged and a pin could be broken. If it makes a quiet thumping sound, then just make sure the power supply is not plugged in upside down (it's easy enough to do).
If this is the SoundDock II or the SoundDock portable, it's hard to say why this would happen, so you should call Bose on that one. There should be an indicator light that tells you when it has power..

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound


The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.

Plastic shroud pulled out of docking station power port.


If the 4 input jacks on the back of the SoundDock seem to be okay, then just order a new power supply. If this is not the case, send it in for repair ($100) which upgrades the SoundDock to be able to use the newer iPods (iPod touch 2nd gen, new nano, iPhone 3G)
They give you a new 1 year warranty as well.
