Bose 3-Piece Speaker Set Troubleshooting Overview

The purpose of this document is to resolve audio problems with the Bose® Companion® 3 series II Speakers set offered by Dell. The following symptoms are covered:

  • No Audio From Computer
  • Low Volume
  • No Sound From One of the Speakers

Verify Power and Muting Options

Check the control pod for the speaker system and verify the power LED (Figure 1-1) is lit green:

  1. If the LED is not lit at all, unplug the power connection from the control pod to the back of the bass module and reseat the connection.
  2. If it remains unlit, plug your power cord into a different wall outlet.
  3. Verify that the power switch on the back of the bass module is set to ON (Figure 2).
  4. If the LED is lit amber, your speaker system is muted. This can occur if you have manually muted the system or plugged headphones into your control pod:
    • Tap the mute/active touch control (Figure 1-2) to un-mute the speaker system.
    • If you have headphones connected (Figure 1-3), disconnect them from the control pod.

  1. Reseat (unplug and replug) the audio input cable connected to the back of your bass module (Figure 3) and perform the same action on the plug that is connected to the back of your computer.
  2. Reseat the speaker cable connectors to the back of your bass module (Figure 4).
