700$?? To Fix? How much would one be NEW?
Just in the sub market, that kind of cash will get you quite a nice one.

jeenu, Mark B., or maybe port will come along to help you, but the repairs are not plug n play.
You need to know how to use a meter and a soldering iron.

Or a buddy who knows how to use same.

Why do you keep calling it a sub? Isn't it called a bass modual? If they called it a subwoofer they could prolly get sued.

Ditch the Bose and get a good sub. For that kind of money you can get a WORLD class used Sunfire.

or any of Several HSU Research (new) ......which IMO put down the Sunfire.
SVS? Outlaw (HSU sourced?) also options. The lower tier of audiophile stuff is Very competitive.
Other used options abound.

700$ to 'fix' a Bose non-sub is a little brisk.
Also, I don't know if a true sub will go HIGH enough to meld properly with those little cube things.

Help Pls.... I have a Bose Companion 3 series II multimedia speaker system which my wife accidentally plugged into a 220V supply. I'd read from some posts that i only have to replace the blown fuse inside and it will be ok. I bought this unit in USA, and I want to ask if somebody can help me with instructions on how to convert it to 220V so I dont have to put a step down transformer? Any help willbe greatly appreciated.

You should contact Bose directly. I doubt they will have any help since they would prefer you simply buy a new subwoofer. But you cannot easily convert most electronics from one Voltage to another without the use of another transformer for stepping up or down the line Voltage.

You would certainly have to replace the power transformer which would result in a cost almost equivalent to buying a new subwoofer. From there each component part of the electronic device would need to be evaluated for proper Voltage and needed replacements would be called for. In the end, it is not an easy thing to do and the cost is almost always prohibitive.

Doesn't Bose have a flat rate exchange program?

Send 'em your junk...they send you stuff that works. of the same type.

I own equipment that will run ANYwhere in the world on any standard voltage of 50 OR 60hz.
My DACMagic+ for example, comes with a bunch of plugs which adapt the PS to WHATEVER the wall plug standard happens to be.
My Canon camera has a dual battery charger which works ANYWHERE as well....So do my tooth brush chargers and several other 'universal' appliances. Some are marked '90v-230v / 50-60hz'
Even my ASP module amps (B&O) will 'jumper' adapt to any voltage worldwide. They have SMPS.

This is more than likely TOO MUCH trouble for Bose who would rather keep everything nicely divided up into territorial fiefs than make things ultimately easier on customers.

....which is also junk, but at least in working order for the duration of the warranty.
