SOURCE: bose acoustimass 25 subwoofer has no power

Honestly speaking you should probably not work on this unit yourself: "There are no user serviceable parts inside"

Even if you are an accomplished Electrical Engineer Bose will not provide the required schematics to troubleshoot and repair this unit.

Are you still undaunted . . . then if the case is the original LS-25 series, there is a hidden catch at the end of the cover furthest from the input connectors that needs to be rotated (until a plastic tab is sticking out), which you can do with a flat bladed screw driver, and you also need to remove a few screws from the bay where all of the connectors reside. Remove the two knobs from the side of the cover. Then hit the case with your fist at the far end (plastic tab) and the cover should then pop off. You may have to hit it hard, with an upward motion.

Note there is not going to be much you can do to fix this beyond replacing the fuse. (Note that the fuse may be soldered in.) The bass amplifier is op-amp based with discrete class G output stage and the twiddler amps are monolithics with discrete class G circuitry shared between several channels.

The power transformer has a thermal fuse in it as well which is not replaceable. If you play the unit loudly for long periods of time and it is not adequately ventilated it is possible for the thermal fuse to open - if this is the case you will definitely need to send it in for service.

When plugged in there are hazardous voltages present on the top PC board where the power connector is located, whether or not the unit is turned on.

Power switching is via a triac controlled by whichever front end you have CD-5? 12V should be present on the mini plug (tip I think, but might be ring) when the music center is on.

There is also offset detection circuitry that will latch the unit off should any output have more than a volt or so of offset.

Yes, there should be no issues using your Bose speakers with your Sony receiver. Sony has a "hookup guide" to help here -

SOURCE: Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system

this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

SOURCE: I have a Yamaha Receiver

Hi,

No it is not compatible to use RX-V 467 with Bose Lifestyle Acoustimass 9.RX-V 467 is a 5.1-channel AV Receiver.
Bose Lifestyle Acoustimass 9 subwoofer are designed to be used with their special equalizer and require a 'Pre-Out Main-In Coupler' or 'Tape Monitor' connection. The compatible models are the:

  1. RX-797 (Pre-Out/Main-In)
  2. RX-497 (Tape Monitor)
  3. RX-397 (Tape Monitor)
  4. AX-596 (Pre-Out/Main-In)
Even though you try to connect it will have buzzing noise or no sound.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Hello
The impedence of all speakers are [3.5 Ohms]. May connected upto [6Ohms] instead, provided the output will be a little less. Bass module cannot be connected with other sources. If you are intented to hear the music on an other room you can add speakers. For more detail, go to page [29] of its user manual, where all details and switching data are provided. All cannot be send by this window, as it will be out or capcity of this answer window. If you haven't its user manual with you now, send your email address to me by FixYa.

I have a Lifestyle 35 and want to replace head unit with a 5.1 receiver. The Bose subwoofer model LSPS uses a network type cable connector on the sub side and a male din plug on the head unit side of...


The entire 5.1 amplification system, in the Bose Lifestyle 35, is actually part of the Bose Acoustimass (subwoofer) module. The RJ-45 (network type) connector passes a low-voltage signal from the console to the Acoustimass module. If you were to hack the connection, and plug the speaker outputs of a 5.1 receiver to the RJ-45 socket on the Acoustimass module, you would blow the amplifier.

If you are really itching to replace the Bose Lifestyle 35 console with a regular 5.1 receiver, I strongly suggest you sell your Bose system, and purchase a Bose speaker system, such as the Acoustimass 10 Home Theater Speaker System, which is made for use with a standard 5.1 surround sound receiver.
