Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Appliances plugged into the mains cause interference in the fm signal which means radio off if appliances in use. Also interference if Bose iPod plugged into mains next to radio.

Bose iPod connected to mains to charge iPod at the same time - interference. Light in utility next to radio room - interference. Bread maker in utility - interference. We are in bad dab area so that option does not work. It means radio on appliances and light off.

You can buy an AC line conditioner, they range from cheap and useless to expensive and exotic, which is able to filter interference coming over the power lines. Simply plug that into the wall, and your radio into the filter, and there should be an improvement.

You can also try plugging the radio into a different outlet, making sure the outlets are wired properly, and try moving the radio to a new location further away from the source(s) of interference.

SOURCE: How can I get the Bose Wave radio to work in Europe??

Yes. The tuner spacing option should do this. If it's a Wave Music System or a Wave Radio II, go into the 'setup menu' and look for 'tuner spacing'. -If it's older, you may want to call Bose for a solution.

I can tell you what to check if you know how to use an ohmmeter. But I warn you you could get shocked if you do not know what you are doing. The transformer has 3 windings, two are for DC voltages, and the other is 3V AC.Your meter can measure those using the AC scale. Next, check the voltage on the 3 terminal regulator IC. One leg will have 18V, the output will have 10V. Again please use CAUTION! Finally, the to-92 transistor Q1 is used as a 5V regulator. Check it (with power off and unplugged) for any shorts, especially base-emitter. If non of these ideas work, I would offer to buy your non working unit if you decide to get rid of it.

My portable Bose speaker has just started to buzz a few times in quick succession, then stop for half an hour or so (whilst not in use). I have unplugged it from mains power and disconnected the iPod but...


This may be caused by external interference.

If you have an AM radio available, turn it on and tune to mid-band (1000kHz for example) and leave it on.

If there is a strong source of static (table saw or other motor-driven AC device) it will show up at the same time as your buzz.

If it does not, try the FM band (~100MHz) and wait for the buzz to occur.

One cannot predict more exactly the nature of the interference.

How to add an iPod Input into a Stock Radio?


<p>You can add an iPod to a stock radio in your car, even if the plant does not have an auxiliary input or iPod input using a specific number of iPod car accessories. One such accessory is a cassette adapter that plugs into your iPod as a headset, but ends on a cassette tape to your stock cassette radio. However, not all cars have cassette players, thus more accessible to the FM transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod to an FM transmitter, if you connect headphones to the iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the FM transmitter to your cigarette lighter to power and then to the transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press up and down on the transmitter to the FM transmitter to change, you will pass the signal to your radio. Choose a station that is not a radio station on it so you do not interrupt the signal. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Set your stock radio to the channel you selected on your transmitter and then play the songs on your iPod. You will see the songs on your iPod through the radio station you selected. <br />

How do I improve my reception on a Bos Wave Radio with single CD player


The Bose uses its power cord as an antenna. The cord has to be stretched out (not coiled) to pick up stations. It also helps if it's oriented the right way -- try changing the direction (having the cord running east to west, say, instead of north to south). Moving the radio and the power cord closer to a window can help, too, especially in a commercial building. These structures often have a steel frame which can block radio signals. If all the above fail, your best bet is to buy an indoor FM antenna, which can be as simple as a piece of wire made into a dipole antenna or as fancy as one of the Terk mini-towers with built-in amp. Bose sells one for their radio, though it's kind of expensive for a simple length of wire. You can get the same thing from Radio Shack, but if you do, be sure to pick up their adapter (catalog 278-257) to plug it into the non-standard Bose jack. All together you'll spend half what Bose wants. Move it around like you did the power cord and you should see a big improvement.

Nothing but static on all bands


There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W When turned on radio emits a loud buzz and no other sound. Pushing tuning, volume, and aux buttons has no effect. Is this fixable? If so, how?


Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Static on every station, no matter where i plug it or how i rotate the antennae. this just started in the last few months


Possible that you have a EMI interferance in your circuit or power which carries into the set..Use the set in the battery mode and swtich off all the mains in your house. if this solves, then check on by one the connected appliances which might produce this static. You could also take the set to another location to see if this reduces off . in this case you will have to check if there is a lurking interferance from the power source. I suppose you might not get this faultt with the FM but MW and SW is bound to pick up the static unless the signal is powerful. Please also try to check your external cords, if possible change the location of the antennae. Further any fault on the radio IFT/filters could be considered. Hope my advice helps you . Good day

Improve reception


HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
 
3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
 
4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Just installed a Bose Wave system, but the radio emits a constant hiss-s-s-s when we tune it to CBC radio at 96.1, FM. How can I cure this problem? Bill


There is probably a source of interference near the radio. Move the radio into another room and tune 96.1 again. If the interference is still present, try again - further away still. You should be able to find a place in your home that the interference is not present. If you are unable to find such a location, try another radio tuned to the same frequency and repeat the steps above. If the interference is present on the new radio - there is an electrical device nearby (not the radio) that is causing the noise.

You could try a battery operated radio (not plugged into the outlet) to determine if the noise is coming into the radio via antenna - or by the power cord. If the noise is gone, the problem is on the wiring in your home. It could be caused by any appliance in your home - or from the utility itself. You'll have to go around unplugging everything (or shutting circuit breakers off) one by one until you find the source. Don't forget to plug the radio into a different circuit after you've gone thru every circuit - just in case it was plugged into the circuit that was the source of the noise.

IF the noise was present while on battery power, the above test will help determine if the noise source in your house, too. You may have to contact the utility about the noise problem - or it may be a problem within a neighbor's home too. Walk around with a battery operated radio on 96.1 and listen for a stronger sounding noise from the speaker. The closer you get to the source will provide a louder sound.

I hope this helps! Good luck!
