You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.

Ya, here is a diagram I made of my Acoustimass 10 IV input cable. All you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker cable (also one RCA connector for sub connection). Here's my diagram:

Here's a diagram of the 15-pin serial input cable that came with my Acoustimass 10 IV system. You just need a 15-pin female d-type connector, one RCA connector and a lot of speaker wire. Here's my diagram:

Hi, All. First, thank you for suggestions posted. Next, I have unplugged both the subwoofer and the center channel speaker, left them unplugged for a minute or two, then re-plugged them in. However this did not correct the problem for me. When I pause the television for five or 10 minutes for example, the Bose volume automatically shuts off. This is a major inconvenience. I suppose if nobody can address this issue with the remedy here, I shall have to call Bose and see if they can assist. Any other ideas or suggestions? Meanwhile thank you very much.

Bose Audio... | Answered on Sep 25, 2020


If it's still not working, contact Bose, sometimes they will ship a replacement at no charge, if not, ship it and $20.00 to me and I will repair it or get you a replacement, if for some unseen reason it is un repairable or I am unable to get a replacement, you will get a full refund, see my feedbacks on Letgo in Fairfield California under Supertech99, 100% 5 Star feedback and reviews, I am the real deal.

I had the same problem right out of the gate, the volume dial on my control pod for my Companion 5 wasn't working, however, the touch pad and LED worked. I called Bose customer service and was instructed to:

First, unplug the power directly at the back of the woofer while the unit was on;

Next, I was instructed to unplug the control pod, visually inspect for any damage/defect;

Finally, re-seat the control pod on the back of the woofer and then lastly plug the power cable back into the woofer.

It worked like a charm. I hope this is helpful!

There has to be some amplification in here somewhere. Any single amplifier will not work correctly with the Active EQ for 901's applied to non-901 speakers.

Any MP3-player device with at least a headphone output can feed any standard audio device that has a Line Level input (other than "PHONO") once the output is adapted to fit the input.

had the same issue. Trial and error - I tried shorting every pair in the control pod dock with a paper clip. Turns out it is totally possible to bypass. You need two: top row, right side to third row, one from the right (below it by two spaces), and second row (there are only two in the second row, connect them). One tells it to turn on, the other passes audio through. I'm only getting sound from the right channel, so probably need to connect one more pair...

I had the same problem. Very frustrating. Tried everything. Discovered the solution. The device that the remote control sends a signal to is located inside the grill of the SoundDock. The receiving device has a lens (which we can't see since it is hidden inside the grill). It can get dust on it that interferes in the signal being received and the remote can then only adjust the volume up and down but no other feature. I sprayed my grill with a can of air. Not being sure exactly where the device is, I sprayed the entire grill, being careful to spray from six inches or so from the grill. Just like that - the remote then was immediaely fully functional and I have ever since been able to use all of the remote's functions. Steve
