The easy way to hook the Acoustimat is by using of the Music center or you can also use a RCA cable and weld the ground to pin 5 and the signal to pin 1-2 of the mini din plug of the acoutimat!

Thank you for getting back to my post so quickly. When you say to use the music center do you mean plug an rca into the center speaker output into the subs center input?

No don't do this or you will blow your Sony sub output, the Music Center is like the Pre-amp of the Acoustimat, the Acoustimat come with the Music center called Lyfestyle then the inter-connection is made by a Mini Din cable(the round plug with multi-pin in back of the sub), this is the plug where you must hook the RCA cable to the pin-in but if you can't do it by yourself ask it to a competent person.

Thanks for the advice Plymouth. I have been searching for a solution to this for several years now. Could you explain in a a bit more detail how to activate the Acoustimass with an RCA cable please? My understanding is that the sub needs a 12volt charge to 'trigger' the power on. So what should the other end of the RCA cable be connected to, once I have soldered the ground to pin 5 and the signal to... (is that pins 1&2 or pin 12???) of the mini din plug?

I would be really grateful for some help with this. Oh, and just in case it saves me some head-scratching, do you know if all the satellites have to be connected before sound is heard from the Acoustimass? Thanks in advance.

Bose Powered Acoustimass 25 Series II

I have this AM25 II but this has no sound, I want to use this with my Onkyo receiver, I tried a couple of things to find the woofer and power transformer are working.
But not sure how to apply the 12v turn on trigger ..I mean which pins this voltage get applied to. Also in case there is problem with the circuit that turns on the AMP what would be the
Test point to start with.

Any help on this is highly appreciated

Thanks,

Swpro72

The answer to my question may have already been posted, but I need help in finding it. If it's been posted, please direct me to the post.

I have two problems with a Bose Lifestyle 30 Series II system. One, the display lights are dead. I checked the 15V Powersupply and it's working correctly. I believe I need the common fix for the display replacing the 4 or 5 capacitors in the powersupply? Correct?

The second problem is no sound. I saw some posts that it may be a fuse in the acoustimass unit? But need help in diagnosing this issue. I can get a brief burst of sound sometimes, but then the sound goes dead. Help?
