How to start a Bose acoustimass 9 powered subwoofer

The Bose cube systems are SYTEMS for a very good reason. They're made for people who want good sound but don't want to manipulate the hardware much. The speakers and amps are designed for each other ONLY, not only electrically but through soundshaping to provide the smooth final result. The design is for you to feed the electronics a Line Level source and the magic and distribution happens internally. These are NOT mix 'n' match components. The special connectors are a clue. The 'different' amplifier will probably blow them up.

WAVE radio transformer bad ???

If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio

Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

BOSe Wave Radio - Disk "not readable"

I had the same problem with the disk unreadable error and took my unit to a authorized repair dealer about 100 miles from where I live to have it fixed. It ended up costing me about $300 to have the CD unit totally replaced which is almost as much as I paid for the unit in the first place. I am like a lot of you that used the CD very little although the unit was about 3 years old. I think Bose has a problem and would like us to think it is very rare. I bought a Lifestyle surround system about 14 years ago that has a CD and have never had a problem with it so needless to say I am very disappointed in the Wave II Radio/CD system. I am fairly certain the problem will occur again, but only time will tell.

Bose wave no sound

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. Check your options before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a problem prone Bose.

Radio will not turn on

My AWR1-1W stopped working. It would power up, but do nothing except occasional static. I was able to set the clock. The clock did work, but that's all. I know Bose products are high quality, so I was not ready to give up on my radio. I spent ages trying to find a fix online. I finally stumbled on something pertaining to another radio that gave me a clue. I opened the battery backup on the bottom and inserted 3 new AA batteries. The radio is now playing like new. I dont know why that would affect a radio plugged into an outlet, but it fixed mine! Good luck!

Moved back to South Africa

You need to get a stepdown autotransformer that takes the 220~240vac input and step it down to 120vac (BOSE can handle 50 or 60Hz line frequency), the problem will be getting one with the NEMA5-15R US style outlet so you can plug your BOSE into this step down autotransformer.

I own a bose radio/cd (top load) with pedestal.

The tuner section may have been toasted by the power surge that affected your home. See if there is another option for an antenna connection and try that. If not, then it does not appear you have much choice. U might want to contact Bose for an authorized factory repair station in your area.
