Wave Music System III

Would I be able to purchase a new remote controller for my Wave III, as it won’t work without one. Some of the “buttons” functions are wearing out.

Wave Music System

Our 2006 Wave Music system is not turning on. When I press the “ON” button on the remote, a “please wait” message appears on the screen after which nothing happens. Can anyone tell me what’s wrong?

The Bose Wave Music Systems used surface mount capacitors that are failing after 15 years. I had a similar problem with my Bose Wave II AWRCC1. I ended up replacing many of the caps inside and now my Bose system is like new. I document what I did on YouTube.

Wave Music System SoundTouch IV

I have got rid of 30 year old sound system (tuner, tape deck, CD, turntable) and moved CDs to my study (3mx3m) and am looking for something to play CDs in study sometimes but mostly in other room (s) or outside or in garage. Also gradually putting CDs into laptop and on stick. Is Bose Wave SoundTouch IV suitable? I expect I will need a separate speaker for use away from the study. Not fanatical about sound. Reasonable quality will do. Which speaker? Am I looking at the right product or is there a cheaper or other option? Jack

Hi. I recently ordered a new remote for my mother, since the old one appeared not to be working. I just need someone to tell me how to test the new one, since my mother isn't able to and I've never used this system before. So it's got a new battery. Now what do I do? I do know this sounds crazy, but my mother is 89, gets very confused and it's honestly easier to ask you! Thanks. Alex

If you have a digital camera, just point the remote at the camera and press the buttons on the remote. If you see a it light up in the camera then the remote is working. (FWIW, we are on our 4th remote - they don't last!)

Hi Don, The Bose Wave does play AM Radio. Easiest way is, on the remote, select the Radio button and press it several times to toggle through the different Radio settings.

I wish I could. Unfortunately these products are riddled with glitches and problems. I’ve recently been listening to pre-set radio stations on a very reliable WiFi network. No outages and no problems on the WiFi network. My BOSE speaker decided the music will stop. The message ‘connecting to network’ has been showing for the last 10 minutes! Never ending problems. Bye bye BOSE!

Is the bose acoustic 5 cd changer able to work with the bose wave radio model awr1?

1 answer

Hello Barbara,

I really don't know about this - my Bose Wave is a single CD unit and I've never tried connecting it to any other device. If your CD changer and Wave are later models, I would think you'd be able to bluetooth them; however, I suggest you contact Bose direct for accurate information. Hope that helps

Cant get the cd out, what do I do?

You could unplug the radio and when you plug it in, it might eject the cd - or, when you plugin try to hit the eject button multiple times. If this is a mechanical problem though, you might very well be facing a disassembly of the radio. Which you should only do if you know what you are doing :)

Hi,
I totally agree with what Mischa advised. Especially if your unit is still under warranty,any non qualified person touching it (repairwise) will void warranty,even if it is an Store extended warranty.
The sweet price of an Discounted Repair,soon sours when you void your warranty.

Wave Music System I

I have an original sound wave radio which I purchased in 1993. In the last year the base has completely gone whilst the treble still works perfectly. Is this a terminal issue or can it be fixed, if so who would be qualified to do so and what parts would need replacing.

Hello Alec,
I live in A.C.T. and technicians here are quite scarce. There are BOSE distributors/agents in most capital cities. The local BOSE store should be able to point you in right direction. Although you must bear in mind today's attitude is replace not repair,so don't expect a lot of positive actions.

I am not completely clear on this, but the service manual suggests that the two audio channels of the TDA7376 are used on a different EQ setup, respectively. If this is the case, maybe one of the speakers stopped working? On my AWRCC4 unit, the two speakers sound the same both left and right.

There might also be a problem with the amplifier chip, or the equalizer chip (connected to it) -- or even the power supply part that feeds the power amplifier. If you know what you are doing and on your own risk, you could open the cover and unplug one after another of the two speaker cables you will see. This way you can tell if it has anything to do with the two audio channels.
