Bose 3.2.1 Volume is too low

When I play my 3.2.1 I have to turn the volume up to 35 to listen normally. My other 3.2.1 unit is very loud at that level.

Ok on your receiver you have different settings this is not easiest to say and think and type at the same time so here goes

your reciever has different settings example sterio, mono expanded sound game sound etc.

i believe that if in wrong setting or the mpx is not on then you will get a low output of sound
also quite possible the songs were recorded at a lower output sound volume

i hope this made some sence

It'll work listening to the radio just fine for about 5 minutes, then the sound goes away.


If you are running at high volume for even a short period of time, the overload signal to the microprocessor(computer within your unit) will cause the unit to shut down. If you are running it that loud, try turning the level to 1/3 of your normal listening mode. If it runs, try to keep the volume with reason.

Low volume at full setting


Check in your Settings under "Music".. There is a "Volume Limit" setting that has a default setting.. If you turn this off, you should notice a difference in your volume control.. It took me some time to figure this one out. I couldn't get any volume from my Bose headphones.. now they work great!

The sound/volume is not working properly on our Bose 321 system...i.e., whereas, a "normal" volume at (let's say) 35-40 is way loud, but now have to turn volume up to 100 (maximum) to be able to...


Make sure the device it is connected to has its audio properties setup correctly. If this is a cable or satellite box, most of them have a volume output level. Changing this will change overall volume.

When listening to bose 321 system what should the volume of the tv be set at?


OFF. Unless the TV is the original source of what you're watching (antenna). Otherwise, your programming is probably coming from a cable/sat box with all the digital audio goodies, right?

If your TV has a menu for setting the volume out its RCA connections I would recommend you set it to whatever resembles FIXED, so it's volume control won't kill the stereo analog audio going out to the Bose. Then you can turn it off at the TV and listen through the Bose.

For the best multichannel audio you should get it digitally from the original source you're watching on the TV, but NOT from the TV itself.

Volume issue


The red/ white RCA is the most correct way for you.

Just to confirm it's analogue tv not digital you are watching?

Your friend is correct for when you watch from a settop box or pay tv provider you can run an optical cable to the bose -but- most tv's don't have an optical out.
SO- can I confirm that you can get sound out of just your tv on it's own?

I'd say that the audio outs on the back of your tv are "linked" to the tv's volume control, so you have to turn up the volume to get a louder output. Some tv's are advanced that you can disable the tv speakers, and permanentlyh set the tv output to a fixed level so you can use your surround sound (and Its volume control)
Try this one if you can.

Hum during any playback


If it is a three prong plug you may have a ground loop issue. Make sure all connections are fully connected first. Break off the round, ground prong see if that helps. It will also cause lines or color differences in tvs with a 3 prong plugs. If that is'nt it. It will not affect any operation or safty of the product.
