Bose SoundDock Power Supply Pin-outs so I can test one

Mentally Disabled Poor Junker bought a SoundDock, no power supply, need the pin-outs so I can try to power it up and test. Could pay for 1/3rd of my meds with it. Only thing I can offer is kudos and gratitude. Which pin's 18v+, 18v-, and Gnd (or whatever it is)?

Hi, The pinouts are as labelled below. The original Bose supply allows for 1A max current, so I would prevent your power supply from going above that.

SOURCE: missing power cable for Bose Sounddock

Repair may the only solution. The new power supply is only slightly different though.. If you don't want to spent the $100 to repair this, you could get the new supply and carve a notch in the top part of the square power input.. Looking at the new power supply, the top is a bit taller and arched but the same specs..
But the new power supply is still expensive. (I think $60+) So for an additional $40 ($100 total) you can get a new supply retrofitted on to the old input. It's worth it- you get a new 1 year warranty, and they put the new Apple dock connector on there (USB charge pin) as well as the power supply, so you can use current iPods as well as old. (Your SD currently won't support- iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2ng gen, or iPod Nano 4th gen.. it will after a repair)

The power supply of my Bose sounddock series 1 stopped working and the price of a replacement is too high, Can I change the 4 pins connector to a regular 2 pin connector in the sounddock. (I know that the...


You cannot use a two pin connector as there are three lines, +18, -18 and ground. While you can connect the two ground lines together, you still need to accommodate the split power rails.

The easiest way would be to fit a 3 pin mini-din plug. However, you are going to be looking long and hard to find a replacement power supply on tevshelf that can produce the two rail voltages required at a suitable current.

In the interest of protecting your dock from damage, and given the amount of work required to make the change, you are far better to bite the bullet and purchase a replacement supply from Bose.

Of course, you may be able to source a Chinese clone supply from China on the eBay website - perhaps worth a look... :o)

I have a BOSE soundock portable and I have to replace my connector at the end of the power supply.What is the size of the connector.


Bose uses a proprietary connector for their power supply. Your best bet would be to purchase one, for example at this site: http://www.frontrowelectronics.com/bose-power-supply-sounddock-series-1-white.aspx?utm_source=googleBase&utm_medium=referal&utm_campaign=Bose
The four pin connector is not standard and cannot be found in stores such as Radio Shack, etc.

You can get a 3 pin plug from many shops, but make sure the voltage rating on the back says it will work on 240V if using in britain as America use 115v electriccal system.

I have to hold my Ipod forward in the dock to get sound


Not a design issue as far as I've heard. They made the 30-pin din connector a bit 'soft fitting' so that it won't break from pulling out an iPod hundreds of times. The SoundDock II and SoundDock Portable are actually some of the more durable iPod products I've ever seen. The original SD also, but that had a weak power supply. I wouldn't worry about this happening again.

Bose sound dock doesn't work at all


If this is the original SoundDock, the power supply in back is 4 pronged and a pin could be broken. If it makes a quiet thumping sound, then just make sure the power supply is not plugged in upside down (it's easy enough to do).
If this is the SoundDock II or the SoundDock portable, it's hard to say why this would happen, so you should call Bose on that one. There should be an indicator light that tells you when it has power..

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound


The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.
