Question about Bose Companion 3 Computer Speakers

Bose speakers not working

I just bought Bose Companion II speakers for my son's computer. When we try to connect to the back, his old Dell had a single plug that is color coded green, the two wires from the Bose speakers do not work. I can get a buzzing feedback, but no real sound. I have switched the red/white plugs in various combinations. Any idea why it is not working?

My puppy chewed through the cord for my a/c adapter, I just took the speakers into Circuit City, and they found me a workable replacement (the replacement isn't BOSE, but it works just fine).  Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Loud hum when Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers are turned on.

I had the same problem for many months. I asked a sound & video professional and he suggested I move the subwoofer away from any power source. I had the subwoofer next to my UPS. Once separated and moved all wiring away from the power supply (about 12") the low bass hum was practically gone.

What you need to do is connect your green audio jack from your speakers into the green audio connection at the back of your computer and you should have sorted it out :-)

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.

Left speaker sometines has no sound? Please help


I bought a set of Bose companion 3 speakers and the darn RCA jacks are cheap and wiggling loose. The cost to send back and repair out of warranty is about $125!! BOSE companion speakers may sound good, but for my money, I'd rather go with more reliable computer speaker systems like Creative or Logitech. BOSE IS WAY TO OVER-RATED, but HEY....they suckered ME out of $275!!!
