Bose SA-3 amp and a non bose sub.. I keep blowing the amp..

To whom it may concern, I have an issue with a Lifestyle SA-3 amp that is powering a non bose sub. I blow the amp at about 1/2 volume. I am really not pushing the amp that hard. My Bose guy doesn't have any ideas why this keeps happening. I am on my 4th amp.. HELP...

How many ohms is your sub? The SA 3 Amp can only handle speaker(s) 6 ohms and greater. A lot of subs, as I understand, are 2 and 4 ohms typically. If yours is 2 or 4 ohms, then that explains it. The speaker would be "straining" your amplifier and blowing it.

Would rather keep the Maestro speakers and change out the Bose amps for some amp with a 4ohm capacity

My Bose SA3 2 channel amp keeps blowing when I raise the volume with non-bose speakers, why is this happening?


Could be the impedence of the speakers that you're connecting. The bose amp was designed to drive 8 ohm speakers.

How can I conrol the volume of bose sa 3 amp from the aux input ?


That would depend on the preamp. Name it. A true preamp outputs a variable signal.

It's not clear from the manual what the state of the volume output is without the VCA. Most amps default to full ON and the preamp attentuates the signal with a volume control. Try it with a signal that fades in slowly so you can intervene if it gets too loud. If it's full ON a preamp will control its volume.

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
