Bose VCS-10 Center Speaker - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

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.

Model numbers matter. What is your model number?

Bose Audio... | Answered on Dec 02, 2019 | 39 views

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.

It will make a noise with the bass going through it. Lights are not fitted on some models.

Hi Anonymous, you are surely taking the signal for your wireless headphones, from the headphone output of your Bose sound system
This usually cuts the sound in the external speakers
Try to find another type of audio output for your headphones
Comment on what Bose system you have, so I would try to find a better solution
I hope you comment

Trata de buscar otro tipo de salida de audio para tus auriculares
Comenta que sistema Bose tienes, as? tratar?a de encontrar una mejor soluci?n
Espero te comentario
Saludos Franco Dosil

Loudspeaker hum is usually caused by a mains breakthrough in the amplifier due to a power supply fault or by a "hum loop" or ground loop. Plenty about this online.

Another cause is an open circuit amplifier or preamplifier input...

Converting a 12-hour time to 24-hour time is straight forward, though confusing. From 1:00 PM to 11:59 PM you add 12 hours, and from 12:00 AM (midnight) to12:59 AM you subtract 12 hours. Or you can simply use the following calculator toconvert to or from either system.
