20 Most Recent Bose VCS-10 Center Speaker Questions & Answers


Since there are only the two conductors it's not rocket science to reconenct them. Did you short them together and damage the amp?

It may not be only wires loose; the speaker(or speakers) may be damaged.

The common 'dynamic' speaker has a centered magnet in an assembly that extends the field of the magnet around a coil of wire on a form called the 'voice coil' that is firmly attached to the cone which moves in and out to 'pump' air and produce sound.
The clearances (gap) between the magnet assembly and the voice coil that sits in a narrow space between the magnet and the outer field piece is very small and critical.

Once positioned in the factory, glue is used to keep the field assembly from slipping and rubbing against the voice coil.

A strong shock will break the glue bond and, if severe enough, clamp the voice coil so it cannot move freely any more.

Since the Bose is a quality product, the cabinet may be assembled with glue and screws that are concealed.

If you know someone with a simple multimeter, they may be able to check at the terminals to see if there is any continuity from the terminals to the speaker.
If it doesn't have any, then perhaps only a wire is broken between the terminals and the speakers.
There is with high probability also a filter inside that separates the frequency range and sends the signal to separate speakers that produce different ranges of sound.

There is no wall mount bracket for the VCS-10. It was not designed to be wall mounted. Your best solution is to mount a 22"x8" shelf to the wall 4-6" below the TV. Make sure it is mounted sturdy enough to support 10lbs.

Manuals (randomly chose a Series 2 from 1990-1994 - if not that, then choose the series from the Bose site)

There are a number of different models. Assuming you don't have a Powered version of the speakers (You'll know you do if you have to plug the subwoofer into AC power)
For the Unpowered systems, the subwoofer plugs into the Speaker R and L outputs of a receiver or an amplifier, so you will have to provide amplification. The satellites plug into the subwoofer and are NOT intended for direct connection to an amplifier.

You should be able to use whatever amplifier has audio inputs from your TV, and regular speaker wire connections out.

Anything that trips the mains has shorted and should be looked at by a technician. Such devices are potentially a fire hazard and should not used and unplugged from the mains till it can be fixed.
