Can I switch Bose bass modules?
This past week we spoke with one of our clients faced with the dilemma that their older Bose system wasn’t working but they are not ready to upgrade. This client would prefer to have their system repaired, but, unfortunately, Bose is no longer repairing older Bose Lifestyle systems. For this client, their only option was to purchase a used console on Amazon or E-Bay. I cautioned the client that before purchasing a used Bose console, confirm that it is compatible with their existing bass module. Although the older bass modules looked the same, like old computer towers, there were different models that were not interchangeable. Different Bose Lifestyle systems had different connections to the bass module and the used console may not connect to the bass module. Even if it does connect, there is a possibility that the internal wiring is different. Before purchasing the used console, confirm that it will work with your bass module. Check the bass module model number on the bottom of the unit and confirm with Bose support @ 888-757-9952 that the model will work with the console you are purchasing.
