I have 4 still working SA-1 lifestyle amp v2
There is a 3mm jack input that gets amplifier on/of signal from Lifestyle 50
It seems to be a good kept secret wich tension this should be ?
Some forums suggest 10 volts DC tension, but this does not work
Any (old) experienced Bose engineers with answers ?

Thanks for the question.
I'm unsure of the question you're asking; are you wondering how to connect those to a Lifestyle 50 system?

No, its about the zone amplifier that went with LS50, the SA1 AMP2.
I would like to use these amplifiers without LS50....
In the mean time i have found out that the jack connector receives + 10,5 volts and +5.0 volts in order to switch on/off this amplifier. With an oscilloscope i do not see any modulation, only DC voltages, altough when i try to start up with 10.5v and 5v from batteries, nothing happens, when connecting to LS50: OK

Usually, in addition to turn on voltage there will be data sent from the console as well. Because of this we don't support the use of these amps without a supported Bose media center. However our new amplifier that works on Wi-Fi and has the features of Bluetooth and Aux inputs might be what you are looking for. Information on the SA-5 amplifier can be found HERE.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
