It is possible that different people have different hearing capacity. If 25-30 does the job, be happy. Nothing wrong.

First thing I'd try is cleaning the laser with a CD / DVD lens cleaning disc. You can find them just about anywhere (Walmart, Target, Best Buy)

Just follow the instructions on the disc (basically just play it) the disc has brushes built into the bottom which will clean the laser lens automatically.

Let me know if that clears up the problem.

Press and hold alarm time for about a second, then press your tune/playlist button until your bright hi or bright lo choices display, once you chose which lighting you want, do not press anything else. It will set to your last selection.

You can obtain a cable that has a 3.5mm stereo plug on one end and two(red, white) RCA plugs on the other end and hook them into an AUX input on the wave radio

Assuming you're talking about listening to radio not CD, I feel like an idiot asking this but do you have an antenna attached to the FM antenna input on the back? If not, attach one. The FM antenna in the power cord is rudimentary at best. Putting your hand on it makes you an antenna so hissing stops. Move away it starts again.

Deja Vu. I did exactly the same thing with my 1st generation Wave Radio in 1995. Like all electronics not made for scuba work, if you don't open the case and start blasting it with a hairdryer in the first few minutes of getting it wet your main circuit board is toast. When you turn it on does it make a rhythmic electronic death rattle sound? If yes, corrosion has destroyed the circuitry.
I don't know if the Bose of today is the same Bose Culture as when I fried mine but mine was 2 months past warranty. I took it to my local repair shop who told me they'd have to replace the main circuit board. Very discouraging but they told me Bose was very responsive to lovers of the product and if I wrote them a letter they might take pity on me. I wrote a letter extolling my love for the product (It was all true. I'd been looking for something non-jarring to wake up to for months before I bought this thing). No BS. I sent the letter and about a month later they sent me a letter with instructions for returning it to the factory and an RMA number. They replaced the main cicruit board for free and returned it to me. It worked flawlessly until 2009.
It's worth a try, but I mean it, send an Old School snail mail not an email. It makes a difference. Good luck and sorry. It's an expensive piece of equipment.

Not sure but mine makes a noise when I set my coffee maker to go off in the morning. It doesn't do it when the coffee is made and just staying hot.
Hope this helps.
