    Try plugging in a pair of headphones or other speakers and see if they produce sound.
    If they don't, then it is most likely a problem with your audio driver. In that case, find the driver, and reinstall/redownload.
    If other speakers or headphones work, try:


    • reinstalling audio drivers

    • ebooting both your computer & your speaker system

    • checking for cuts or tears in the speaker system wires

    • disconnecting all of the wires in the speaker system and then reattaching them

SOURCE: Does a companion 5 bose speaker have a fuse?

You will need to change entire power supply/distribution circuit since you have managed to fry it all with twice the voltage required by the system. Speakers should be OK only the circuitry needs to be rectified and too by a professional/expert technician ...........sodeep

check if the volume control needs to be replaced. volume controls gets bad in due time coz of the carbon layer which gets thinner and thinner till it gets cut off

SOURCE: Control Pod for Bose Companion 5 speaker system

I had the same problem right out of the gate, the volume dial on my control pod for my Companion 5 wasn't working, however, the touch pad and LED worked. I called Bose customer service and was instructed to:

First, unplug the power directly at the back of the woofer while the unit was on;

Next, I was instructed to unplug the control pod, visually inspect for any damage/defect;

Finally, re-seat the control pod on the back of the woofer and then lastly plug the power cable back into the woofer.

It worked like a charm. I hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: Bose Companion 3 series II speakers aren't producing sound (imac)

from what I've read, the imac has a 3.5mm (.138) jack while the Bose jack is 1/8 (.125). very small difference in size (.013), but enough to cause problems.

SOURCE: Can I hook up the Bose Companion 2 series speakers

Hi,
Well if you currently find the sound of the Bose acceptable and your inbuilt HD TV speakers poor, then the answer is yes. Should you not like the sound of the Bose, plugging them into an HD TV won't make them sound any better :-)

Just use the headphone out of your HD TV to connect. You may find you need to enable the headphone socket/volume via the menu settings on your HD TV

Problem hooking up bose speakers


mcdevito75 here, The HP speakers that came with your computer work fine, the bose speakers work fine on your other computer, the plug on the Bose speakers is a little shorter than the HP speakers, and only the right Boss speaker is working, HMM, Check the Bose speakers, both of them for a volume control 1 of them may need adjustment on this particular computer. If that"s not it, I would speak to a Radio Shack, Staples etc.

Bose companion 2 speakers not working with the HP slimline


Speakers are speakers. They should not need configuring if they are funtional and powered up. The speaker out jack does not know the difference from bose to sparkamatic.
