Too much bass sound. When volume is very low bass is boom, boom, radio does not sound as loud and clear as it did when new. When volume is turned up bass is BOOM BOOM BOOM sounds awful. Is there help or any ideas what may be wrong. I have 2 Bose CD Radios and they both sound about the same. Thanks

Re: BOOM BOOM BOOM
The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.

ONB14AV201 alarm clock with gradual wake alarm function. Radio alarm sound level will start from 0-15 within 12 to 15 second when alarm on. You can adjust the radio alarm volume by press the "ALM2/VOL-" or "ALM2/VOL+" buttons.
The manual not mention the radio alarm sound level can be preset.
This clock is supposed to have an automatically "increasing" volume feature (starts off low, gets louder over a minute or so).
If not sufficient, look on the top right side of the clock, there should be an up/down volume control. It is a black oval-shaped button with a picture of a sound speaker in the middle. Push it upward to increase volume and downward to decrease volume. Unfortunately, you have to have a flashlight or light on to see it because none of the controls are illuminated.
We also have this problem. Found this info in the product's Q&A on the website: http://answers.thesource.ca/answers/9026/product/1218694/centrios-centrios-ipod-iphone-clock-radio-white-questions-answers/questions.htm
"Ok. there is a way that you can LOWER the wakeup radio volume. turn on
the radio (forget about the alarm right now) and go to the station that
you want. when you get to the station, you should be able to press the
'skip/fast forward' button on the remote. when you do this, number 5
should show up beside the station #. When you do this, it lowers the
overall volume of every volume level, so now level 19 is equal to volume
level 9/10, which for me is loud enough to wake me, but not give me a
heart attack! so, now when the alarm goes of, the volume is a lot lower.
BUT if you want to wake up to your ipod, this method will NOT work, it
will still be up at level 19. so when you turn on your ipod, it will be
really LOUD. again, this only works with the radio."
Also if you are waking to ipod and not radio this was in the reviews: "Fooled with it for a bit and discovered that
you have to turn down the volume of the iPod first before putting it on
the dock. We've tried it a few times just to make sure and it worked
Still not a perfect solution, but a great improvement. Hope this helps someone.
Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved. Hope this solution has been helpful?
The clock radio is mediocre, according to at least 15% of owners. First, the radio reception lacks
clarity and the sound is tinny. Second, there are many small
buttons and it's impossible to tell which is which in a dark
room. Third, because the volume and radio tuner are adjusted
by moving a dial, it is easy to accidentally move the device
and turn down the volume as a result. This can be a problem
if you've set the clock-radio alarm and the radio volume is
too low.Kindly check these first.
You are correct the variable resistor is bad. Most TV/Radio repair shops will find this a simple fix.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect. If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply. Thank you.
sounds like a loose cable from the control bard to , some one will have to open up to fix, i recommend bose do that for you,
as for fm volume, the same could be the cause as the fm antenna coudl be disconnected, ( are you using an external FM antenna ?)
