Is my in ceiling/in floor Bose bass speaker compatible with the new Bose Lifestyle systems?


Many of our clients have older Bose systems that had in-ceiling/in-floor bass speakers. These systems were known as Bose BIV systems and were often sold through homebuilders for new construction homes. These systems are now 20-25 years old and are starting to experience issues with the CD based Media Centers and amplifier, TA series. Since the TA amplifiers and CD based Media Centers are no longer manufactured and cannot be repaired due to lack of parts, clients are asking if the in-ceiling/in-floor bass speakers are compatible with the newer Bose Lifestyle systems. The answer is no. The newer systems have powered bass speakers, which means the amplification is built in the new bass speaker. As a result there is no available amplification for the in-ceiling/in-floor bass speaker. The normal follow up question is “Can the new Bose bass speaker be built into the ceiling or floor”? The answer is no. The new Bose bass speaker is designed to be placed in the room on the floor. Please visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
