Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System

Open Question

Acoustimass V20 will not power on - no light on

We just bought (used) this entire V20 system. The previous owner swears it worked great before she packed it up. We've hooked it up (and everything really looks like new), but the module does not even light up on the back next to the plug. In the set up directions, it says to turn on the module, but we can't find a switch or button anywhere, just the light that doesn't do anything. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Acoustimass Subwoofer has a low "hummm" sound when turned on.

Sounds like an inadequate ground wire in the signal cable. You may have to replace the cable between the reciever and bass module. It also, however, may be IN the bass or reciever module.

SOURCE: Changing the inpout voltage of inside bose Acoustimass module

Probably not, but you can install a step-down transformer if there's room inside the unit. Since these speakers don't use much current, a small transformer will work. It doesn't have to be a 220-to-110 transformer either - any transformer designed to cut the voltage in half is fine. A 24 volt-to-12 volt transformer will also work.

The master on/off switch will usually be on the back (or maybe even the bottom) of the largest component, which contains the power and control circuits.

All I did was unplug my surge protecter for a 1 minute and once I did that I had bass from the module again.  I am using a Belkin PURE AV power console.

Hi - Don't know about the switching LEDs but there is no reason to be using both the HDMI cable AND a digital coax cable to the V20.

You should have a single HDMI (carries video and 5.1 audio) cable from the DVD to the DVD input in the V20.

Is the subwoofer from the Bose acoustimass 10 series IV Home Entertainment Speaker System a power sub?


The entire speaker system is passive. That is, it requires amplification for each channel.

From the manual: "Compatible with A/V receivers rated from 10 to 200 watts per front channel and 10 to 100 watts per rear channel; rated from 4 to 8 ohms".

I have a Lifestyle 35 and want to replace head unit with a 5.1 receiver. The Bose subwoofer model LSPS uses a network type cable connector on the sub side and a male din plug on the head unit side of...


The entire 5.1 amplification system, in the Bose Lifestyle 35, is actually part of the Bose Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. The RJ-45 (network type) connector passes a low-voltage signal from the console to the Acoustimass module. If you were to hack the connection, and plug the speaker outputs of a 5.1 receiver to the RJ-45 socket on the Acoustimass module, you would blow the amplifier.

If you are really itching to replace the Bose Lifestyle 35 console with a regular 5.1 receiver, I strongly suggest you sell your Bose system, and purchase a Bose speaker system, such as the Acoustimass 10 Home Theater Speaker System, which is made for use with a standard 5.1 surround sound receiver.

Do I have to have a powered bass module to make the cubes work?


Your Acoustimass 5 is a powered sub with powered surround speakers. If you are not getting sound output, the internal fuse may be open and you will have to replace it. Bose used a heavy multiple output cable terminated in a miniature DIN plug to connect speakers. You may be able to find one on eBay.
