Bose Acoustimass 15 subwoofer is completely dead.

Does the Bose Acoustimass 15 subwoofer have an internal fuse that might have blown. We have tested the subwoofer on another setup and still not base.

Clarify, did it ever work for you? Were both receivers used properly configured for the subwoofer? Did you also test the other speaker moduels running off the subwooferto see if they work?

How can I repair my bose subwoofer acoustimass 10 series 4, it has been plug to a 220V wherein its voltage capacity is only 110-120V. Is it the fuse that has been blown out, how can I replace it?

Ugh.. this is likely NOT going to be fixed by replacing a 10 cent fuse - even if there is one and it is blown. Introducing 2X the rated voltage is highly destructive to several or more components of the internal amplifier and has likely resulted in catastrophic failure.

I have a bose acoustimass 15 bass module and when I turn it on all I get is a continuous thumping sound

okay i think you may have a problem within your connections i dont think its internal like a bad component or something such as that but make sure your wires are in good condition and most important they are hooked up properly and that should take care of your problem

can be chance for fuse blowing. also check is there is any MOV ( used for over voltage surge protection) chance to become shorted. if MOV is there, insert fuse only after replacing MOV.

My Bose Acousticmass 15 sub has stopped working. I have tried unplugging it but that has no effect. When I turn the switch "on" I get nothing (but the sub still passes sound to the cubes). Any ideas? Can I...

If you know the sub has no power (tried new outlet or tested the current) the fuze may have been blown. The problem is that it could be more than the fuze in this case. Also the fuze is not easily replaceable in these bass modules. I'd call Bose tech/repair support to see what they offer for repair options. (they're actually pretty reasonable considering the cost of their products)

Have a Bose Acoustimass 15, Would seem the fuse has blown, all other speakers work. Have removed two screws and the two knobs. Found the slider mechanism, and moved it facing up towards me, issue is still...

Of course it's worth it - just unsolder the old fuse and solder a new one in. But first make sure the fuse is really blown. Buy a cheap $10 ohmmeter and check it - a good fuse will make the meter respond, or make the ohmmeter beep. Note that a blown fuse might still make the ohmmeter respond, since other circuits connected to the fuse will affect the reading. So look for zero ohms. If you get like 5 or 10 ohms or more, the fuse is blown. It may not be the fuse, but this is the first step to find out. Best way to check fuses is to unsolder and lift one end, so that you're only reading the fuse.

Subwoofer blows internal fuse when receiver is turned on

Has it ever worked?

Try this - connect one pair of its speaker wires at a time and test it. Watch the polarity.

• Make sure all cube speaker arrays are connected to the proper terminals according to their
position in your room.
• Check to be sure all wires are connected to your surround receiver with the proper polarity
(+ to + and – to – wires). Incorrect wiring can result in a total loss of module output.
• Correct any wiring problems before you plug in your receiver and turn it on.
