The buttons on my Series-II cubes get stuck all the time. It seems the button itself sticks against the housing. I first spray on a little bit of silicone to coat the sides of the housing that rub up against the button. Then I use a straight razor blade to pry in the gap between the button and the wiring-holes, alternating below each hole. As you do that, the button rocks out a little bit at a time.

SOURCE: Brookstone Wireless Outdoor Speaker with Bose 123 System Problem

AUX usually refers to an INPUT, such as a CD player, etc. No signal comes out of a standard AUX jack, unless it specifically says "Aux speaker output". Instead, look for another speaker output jack, such as remote speaker, B speakers, etc. You may only have one set of speaker output jacks, in which case you would need to connect your wireless speaker to the speaker output jacks along with your main speakers, or buy a little speaker selector switch box to switch between main and wireless speakers. There's usually no harm in connecting more than one speaker set to the same outputs, though it is technically not recommended. In the real world, just don't crank it too loud and you'll be fine. The wireless speaker MIGHT run off of a standard line output also, if the wireless speaker has its own power amplifier.

SOURCE: compatable receiver list for Bose 901 series VI

I contacted the Customer support folks at Bose. Here is what they said: With a stereo receiver, the equalizer is run through the tape monitor section in the back of the receiver. The receiver's tape monitor output, left and right, runs to the amp input section of the equalizer, left and right. Then the amp output section of the equalizer, left and right, runs to the receiver's tape monitor input section. With a surround sound, home theater, type of receiver, the theory is the same, but the connection is through the preamp-out/ main amp-in section of the receiver. Not all receivers have this feature. Most, in fact, do not. Check the back of the receiver. There would be a connection made by two U-shaped clips. The plugs would be pulled out. Then connect from the preamp-out to the equalizer's amp input section; and from the equalizer's amp output section to the main amp-in. This effectively isolates the equalizer so that it is not affecting the other speakers in the system or the receiver's surround processing. Attached is a current list of known 901-home theater compatible receivers:
Note: Specifications subject to change without notice. Bose Corporation is not responsible for any inaccuracies due to manufacturer changes. Inclusion in this list does not indicate an endorsement by Bose Corporation. When in doubt contact the manufacturer of the equipment.

I have the list in a pdf document but do not see a way to attach it.
Contact me at [email protected] and I'll forward the pdf.

SOURCE: Replacement speaker (upper) for Bose double Cube.

try a music specialty store or radio shack if you want to only replace the small speakers inside the cubes. If you want to replace the whole cube, there are others out there. Look on ebay and or amazon I think the brand is JA Audio. A knock off of the bose cubes that can be used as stand alone speakers without the module.

SOURCE: latest model surround receiver for bose 901 speakers VI

I can think of no reason any amp pushing 120 watts would not work with 901-VI's. They're very efficent and will probably play louder and cleaner than you would ever need. As I recall, my old series IV's have no maximum amplifier rating specified, but I did blow up a bridged Carver M-400 Cube (pushing 400 watts to one speaker with a DVD-Audio of Yes - Fragile cranked dangerously high) with them. I'm convinced my speakers are indestructible in any home application.

Keep in mind that whatever you decide to use as your control/amplifier section, a pair of 901's need a dedicated stereo amplifier. I suspect you're thinking surround sound so a receiver with separable preamp/amp channels, due to the Activbe EQ, would be needed and as far as I know they don't exist. A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds.

Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. 120 clean watts is good. I'm using only 110W for mine.

A Carver M-200 is a fine, efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

SOURCE: connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture

You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

My companion 3 system will not amplify. The green light indicator will not switch to orange when I tap it. It appears to be stuck on green but with no amplification. Any ideas?


This device has a short when you tap it the device goes on it is a going bad part in the speakers itself. Take it in an have it checked out. Bose is really good with their customers and doing repairs. That system is to nice not to take it in or send back for repair. It is not like going to Target and getting a cheap speaker setup. So that is my advice I would not attempt a repair on my own on this one. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Is there a product like WD 40, only for stuck terminal tabs. Mine are stuck on Bose accoustimass 3 speakers . A terminal tab is pushed in, will not pop back out, and the wires will not stay...


Never use WD40 or any other petroleum product on anything electronic including the terminals. You may have to remove that terminal and repair or replace it. Good luck.

The title contains the Onkyo reference, hence the presumption it was involved.

Yup, sounds like you're stuck with a lemon. Have you contacted Bose?

My bose cd player won't take a cd now and play it but the radio works fine. There doesn't seems to be any disc inside. The display says no disc.


It looks like this is a Wave Music System. (Front, slot-loading CD drive? About 4 inches tall?)You could try a basic reset. Just unplug it from power for about 30-40 seconds. When you plug it back in, it should try to 'force-eject' anything that could be stuck inside. Otherwise, try another CD after the reset to see if it pulls it in and it plays. If that doesn't work, you could try flipping it upside down and pressing eject. (a roller could be stuck on something)
Let me know if this helps.

Stuck terminal tab


I was able to pry the stuck tab open with a small flat head screwdriver. After a number or repetitions of that process, plus some repeated pushing on the tabs, they started working normally.
