No base

I have an SA5 amp powering a pair of 151 speakers and a pair of Free space 51 speakers.

I get zero base through the speakers. 

Any ideas?

Re: No base

Is it the one SA-5 powering both sets of speakers?

 

Because you can't do that with the 151s. Some speakers you can pair two sets with the one (for example two pairs of the Freespace 51s) but the 151s must be the only speakers attached.

Re: No base

Thank you and yes, its powering both sets of speakers!

I'll try disconnecting the other set to see what happens. 

Its unfortunate that the Bose salesmen didn't tell me that - I was very clear about my plan!

Re: No base

I'm new to this Forum stuff so please bear with me....!

Can Bose please confirm officially that the suggestion above is correct?

Meaning I need to buy another amplifier to power the other speakers?

I found a thread from 2016 about the same issue and there didn't seem to be a resolution. 

Bose: please help!

Re: No base

I disconnected the Free Space speakers and it makes absolutely no difference! There is still no base sound at all. The Soundtouch App does not allow adjustment of the base, only base reduction.

Help!!!
