    I did you steps and that didn't do anything. We are remodeling and the other amp is buried at this time. I should be able to get to it Friday and I will try using that one for the main and see what happens.

    Main room is Lifestyle 48 with cube speakers. No sound from cube speakers. I purchased another base amp and re connected all wires and still no sound in main room.
    Living room is connected to the 48 with a separate amp and speakers and works fine.
    Family Room is connected through a wireless link to a GS321 and works but 1 side does not work. If I switch it to the GS321 as the source both sides work.

    I have turned the volume to max, reconnected all the wires, shut off the system and disconnected the power bar from the A/C outlet and it does not work. The amp from the other rooms will not hook up to the cube speakers.

The problem is usually that you have blown a resistor to the amplifier. Unfortunately Bose does not have any technicians that have been trained. Or will not sell parts for their equipment. Depending on how old the unit is. You can contact Bose and they will fix the resistor at no charge. Sometimes they will, sometimes they will charge you. But you have to contact them. (877) 335-2673

What is the configuration in the main room and how is the cable connected? Are they all connected to the same machine through all the rooms or different systems in different rooms?

    Did you try adjusting all the switches and volumns on the amp and speakers or replace the amp by putting the amp from another room in the main room and maybe connect a speaker from another room to it either to see which part is the issue? If it still does not work after switching devices, then there is something wrong with the software. We will need to check or restore the default settings of the software.

  • Donald Huang Nov 16, 2010

    A complete list of steps is included below.




    • Increase the volume.

    • Press the MUTE button on your music center or remote control to unmute the sound.

    • Check the connections to any external components.

    • Be sure to select the correct source (CD, AM/FM, etc.) for the desired input.

    • Unplug the system's power pack for a few seconds, and then reconnect it. This allows the unit to reset itself after a power surge or power interruption.

    • Check the speaker and Acoustimass® module (if applicable) connections.

    • Disconnect any headphones.

    • Connect the FM and AM antennas, if applicable.

    If you are using the same media center box for all the room (all the speakers connected to the same box that plays the music), then you can check the settings options while playing something to make sure the number of speakers are set to 5 and the settings for center speakers are right.

    Steps as below.

    When you press the Settings button while a specific

    source (like CD) plays, the setting options appear on

    screen and on the media center display. Some, but not

    all, of the following options are available for the

    particular source.

    Number of Speakers Playing

    You may choose from 2, 3, 5, Audio 5, or Video

    5, depending on the source playing.

    Surround Volume

    You can adjust the rear speaker volume relative

    to the three front speakers.

    Center Speaker Volume

    You can adjust this volume relative to the four

    other speakers.

    Did you try to use another audio device (mp3, radio or computer) to test the cube speaker and the cable connection and the amp to it?

  • Donald Huang Nov 21, 2010

    Did you unplug the power cord of the media center for 60 seconds. Does it work when you plug another speaker into the port where you connect your main room speakers?

Bose lifestyle one room doesn't connect and the remote says it won't connect to media center


Look in the instruction manual and make sure that you have set the codes correctly, the house code for the remote, as well as the room code for the second room. Also check the batteries in the remote control, especially when the room as far away from the main room, the batteries need to be full in order to reach the center. I assume we talk about a wired system? When this is a wireless connection to the second room, it may need a reset, unplug and re-plug the wireless adapter, there should be a pilot light in the back of the wireless adapter, which should be green. If that does not help, call Bose.

Bose link AL8 will not connect with the Lifestyle homewide powered system


Your v35 system needs to be programmed to work with the second zone wireless unit. Read the instruction manual how to do it, or let a Bose dealer set it up for you.

Probably the connection in the main room to the wirless transmitter. The problem is definitely between the media centre and the wireless sender as it is not effecting the main zone and is effecting both second zones. Multi pin connections can bend very easily if pushing the connection further in does not solve it you may need to replace the pins. why not call Bose tech?

Bose link AL8 connection problems


I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.

Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.

The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.

If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.

Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?

If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!

Hope this helps.
