Bose acousticmass 15 sub-woofer making a noise

Recently my house experienced an electrical surge during a thunderstorm. The sub-woofer powers on, but just makes a constant thumping noise. I replaced the fuse, but it makes the same noise. I was wondering if it is blown or if this problem sounds familiar and do you think it's repairable? I figured the sub-woofer has some kind of chip in it since the other speakers won't work without the sub and it just needs to be replaced.

The sub contains the amp for the other speakers. But it sounds like the amp has a seriously damaged section and will probably have to be serviced by Bose.

I'm getting a funny popping sound from the sub-woofer it appears; because when unplugged I don't hear it.


Looks like the capacitors on the amp are going.
If you hear a hummm sound when you turn it on without anything playing on it, then the capacitors are to blame for sure -> Time to replace the capacitors.

Adding Subs to a Bose 901 system


The Bose system has sound that is unmatched, the 901 with the equalizer is amazing. I have done what you are thinking of doing, the speaker runs 5ohms giving more power to the coils, adding a sub will color the sound and will not give the desired results, the 901 equalizer may be damaged with the modification of the sub, not recommended.

I was having this very same problem. I finally figured out that I was getting feedback to the system because my TV cable coming into the house wasn't grounded right.

Hi,sorry but you can not connect it directly like other sub-woofers..
Bose 2683 Powered Subwoofer is part of Bose Lifestyle 5 system, Please note that you will need the 5-pin DIN cable that connects the subwoofer to the base or "Music Center". and the 4 pronged connections for its own stereo speaker output not input from another stereo..
Sorry....but if you can arrange some handy man nearby ,he may get into the DIN cable to locate the subwoofer signal 2x input leads than you can use that leads for connecting into single sub woofer out let of your system...otherwise try to sell BOSE which can easily buy brand new up to date powered sub..

If you know the sub has no power (tried new outlet or tested the current) the fuze may have been blown. The problem is that it could be more than the fuze in this case. Also the fuze is not easily replaceable in these bass modules. I'd call Bose tech/repair support to see what they offer for repair options. (they're actually pretty reasonable considering the cost of their products)

Loss of bass when both left & right speakers are attached?


I have solved my problem having called a local dealer. They suggested that the bass unit was connected out of phase. I was convinced that my connections were correct having labelled the speaker wires with coloured tape. However I reversed the connections on one channel and surprise, surprise the bass was restored. It's a no cost option so it has t be worth a try.
