You cannot add a second sub woofer to your Bose system unless you are very well versed in electronics and would like to tamper with the internal electronics of the Bose module. Unlike other systems the 6 channel amplifier ( 5 + 1sub ) and its crossover electronics + power supply unit is built into the Bose bass module. The circuit uses very small surface mounted devices with double sided pcb ). And even a professional technician might refuse this work in fear that he may damage the whole unit itself !!!!.

    Would you not be able to use the RCA audio output jacks to a second subwoofer?

Bose lifestyle 5 keeps shutting off sound


KEEPS SHUTTING OFF SOUND AFTER ABOUT 1 TO 2 HOURS OF PLAYING. HAS POWER, EVERYTHING LIGHTS. I THINK THE PROBLEM IS SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE ACCOUSTIMAS MODULE OR THE SUBWOOFER.

Not good surround sound Is the bose lifestyle 5 support 5.1 surround sound?


The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.

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.

Bose lifestyle 28 will not come on?


The Bose Lifestyle System has two power connection. One is the adaptor for the media center/DVD and the other one is the bass module/ subwoofer. Both has physical indicators showing that power is present. If your pwoer adaptor is ok, then the media center display should show "BOSE LIFESTYLE SYSTEMS" on startup. The bass module power module should be OK when you see a green blinking or steady linght underneath.

If only the media center/DVD has no display then there is something wrong with your pwer adaptor and should be sent for repair.

Hope I have helped you
